You’ve seen the Opalescent Prowler mount for EverQuest II. You want one on your account. You’re aiming to win this month’s Facebook quest. But how will you get your game’s page to reach the “Like” goal? What else can you do?

Enter the “Make a Meme” contest! Not only will you have a hilarious new meme to share with your friends and family to entice them to like your game’s page, but you also have a chance to win additional prizes!

How will this help you get this month’s Facebook reward? Every eligible contest entry received will count as 50 additional likes for your game’s Facebook page!

How to enter:

Visit the EverQuest II Facebook page and download the provided in-game image. Make a meme that references EverQuest II culture or general internet culture. Submit your meme through the Facebook contest page and fill out the provided form for a chance to win! You have from now through Friday, August 24 at 11:59 am PDT* to enter!

Entries must follow the same guidelines for appropriateness in the EverQuest II Community Forums when submitting images.

The Grand Prize winner will receive a Sony Bloggie and 5,000 Station Cash. Three (3) runners-up will receive 5,000 Station Cash.

Make sure you spread the word to your family and friends – if they like the EverQuest II Facebook page, they can vote for your meme and help you win!

Not feeling creative but still want to help EverQuest II complete this month’s quest? Be sure to log in and vote for your favorites!

This would be cooler if they actually rewarded...still waiting on july's reward, sent in 3 petitions, and always just say we are aware of the issue.

It's a video camera with poorer picture and sound quality than your cell phone.

While I did submit a picture to the contest, I do have to wonder about the title of this post. Why would a quest reward cause me to laugh out loud?

@Feldon: wouldn't doubt it has worse quality than a cell phone camera if it's valued at $100 and retail value of cells now are $400-$600 for the "cheap" ones.

I think the Bloggie's like 3 year old tech, too.  They've been doing Fan Faire blogger contests involving Bloggies for at least two years.

This particular contest is for extra prizes, which reading through the description informs you of that. Each entry adds +50 likes as well, ensuring that we'll "win" this month's "quest".

My potion is in /claim, check the "Promotions" tab. If I'm correct it's the Extended Potion of the Advanced, and apparently it's only 1/account.... because we all know how much people love 1/account things.

Yeah, potions - this one and others - ought to be one per character.

I wish mounts and house items were one *per server*...

But any heirloom mount will come in handy when you want to run a string of alts through your account. SMILEY

ah sorry i did kindof scim thru it after seeing the pic of the mount and reading "..you want one for your account..." Do i?

But then if each entry adds 50 likes to the page that makes the original "quest" even more of a pointless exercise.

Maybe im getting old... get off my lawn!

They need to fix the way they do titles for posts.  I thought it was about bad rewards for quests.

Good luck any who do this though.  I am not big on artistic contests because I never can get a caption I really like.

Unsurprisingly, SOE doesn't understand what a "meme" really is.  However, I'd wager that when most people think about quest rewards and memes, facepalm comes to mind.

You need to post on the contest site if you actually want to participate.

The best by far is here:

What does this have to do with a photoshop contest?

While I agree the link between quest rewards and this contest is tenuous at best...  I just wanted to point out there are a number of meme sites out there that you can upload this image and create a submission with no photoshop like skills required.

Was wondering myself if there was a way to change your entry, but I don't see any way to edit. Meh.

Just that I was thinking about it, and I like this one better cause it's base on a true story:

Rather than the other I entered with. Oh well. ;/

My first thought was: "Forced meme is forced" // Milhouse is not a meme. I did it anyway.

I'm curious as well.. though I'd assume that mine didn't as I haven't heard anything yet. SMILEY

Not seeing a timeframe on the contest guidelines for when they'll announce winners, so.. someday when they hear back from all of the winners, I guess?
