Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

So, hi, everyone! I'm sure you have noticed that the scrolling quote has returned, on both skins now. We're going to be trying to keep it a bit more updated than in the past, too, hopefully changing every couple of weeks-month.

As such, we're going to need a good selection of quotes to pick from.

We tried a poll back before the site switch (dunno if anyone remembers that), and it was okay, but very slow. Since we're going for speed and immediacy, we're going to do it a bit different this time.

So, basically how this works is, we're taking suggestions for scrolling quotes. Ideally, they shouldn't be too long, and should capture the spirit of the site or crucial events in some facet, or just be really really good quotes. We're not going to have voting on these; rather, the staff is going to pick from the suggestions or others we find. It's less democratic, but it's a whole lot quicker and easier, and ensures that our quotes are actually pretty current.

One last thing: when you suggest a quote, please make sure to link the thread it comes from. This is a chance to informally highlight and shout out to some of our great writers and characters, and I'm sure a bunch of people will be interested in the scenes these quotes come from.

Also, please do not nominate yourself.

Repeat nominations are pointless, since this is not a voting thing.

Finally, there's no way we're going to get anywhere close to hitting all of these, especially as they become less current due to game progress, so I want to reiterate that the secondary purpose of this thread is to give shout outs to cool lines and characters.

Since this is not a critique thread, no bashing of others' choices.

Now, have at!

EDIT: Keeping a list of past quotes for posterity, just in case anyone is interested.

Does it have to be from a character still present/alive on the island? Or are the deceased and escaped also fair game for quote mining?

They're fair, though we're trying to keep quotes fairly recent (last 1-2 months at most, preference to the last month or less).

In response to a couple questions:

-Just dialogue, please. We'll have plenty with that alone.

-Submit as many nominations as you want! Just link all the threads, please.

The Gravity quote's pretty awesome, but not quite recent enough to go with here.

This is still open for nominations. We're going to try to change it up at about the same time as announcements/midmonths (every couple weeks or so).

since this has been dead for nearly a month anyway, i'm throwing in one more:

“Biggest monster dies at the end of the book.” - Julian Avery in You Already Know How This Ends

probably a harder sell without the earlier lines as context, but it felt a little long throwing everything in & i think the meaning's implied pretty well.

Bump because we're nearing quote change time again.

I like your suggestions, T-Fox, except for two little things:

I'm trying to focus on non-staff members for the quotes, since staff kinda get a lot of attention as is, so I'm going to try to avoid featuring any staff characters unless its absolutely unavoidable (like, if whoever wins has a particularly good quote and happens to be a staffer's character or something.

The issue with Rachel's quote is that, absent extenuating context, could give newcomers a rather inaccurate view of the site's purpose/focus. I guess I'm trying to find quotes that are not only cool but do a good job of capturing the overall essence of SOTF, since they are often what new members see first. Oh, and also that are not by staffers.

So, yeah, sorry for the ramble here. Just wanted to give an explanation so it didn't look like I was ignoring your suggestions.

Fell behind and decided to grab something really current to make up for it/buffer future stuff. Apologies for missing a month on changing this up.
