<span class="plainlinks">[http://www.g4tv.com/attackoftheshow/ "Attack of the Show!"] on [http://www.g4tv.com/ G4] started its [http://www.g4tv.com/attackoftheshow/blog/AOTB/cat/9/User_Created_Challenge.html "User Created Challenge"] contest on February 1, 2006.  "AOTS" can also mean AOTS-related YTMNDs or YTMNDs that participated in the challenge.</span>
== The Contest ==
From the [http://www.g4tv.com/attackoftheshow/blog/AOTB/post/553546/User_Created_Challenge.html original blog-announcement] on the G4 website:
<blockquote>We want a kick-ass “You’re the Man Now Dog” [www.ytmnd.com]. Be creative, make whatever you want. It doesn’t have to be AOTS-themed (we think there’s enough crazy crap going around the internet that you should have plenty of material). The more unique and funny it is, the better.</blockquote>
Entry into the contest was a matter of including "AOTS" in the URL address (not the title) of your new site.  AOTS also wanted entries to have the website's address included in the site's description, presumably to help those responsible for combing through the resulting deluge of sites, the majority of which have since been deleted.
== The Results ==
On February 8, 2006, AOTS announced the winners on their show, later [http://www.g4tv.com/attackoftheshow/blog/AOTB/post/556117/User_Created_Favorites.html posting them] on their blog.  Those recognized on the show were:
* {{y|aotsytpnd|You're the Pereira now, dog!}} by [[User:Scottendo|Scottendo]]
* {{y|kapowaots|Ka-Pow}} by {{profile 2|Vex5|Vex5}}
* {{y|aotsafroninja|Afro Ninja Fails Again}} by {{profile 2|nightrose|nightrose}}
* {{y|jimmythegeekaots|Jimmy the Geek doesn't change facial expressions.}} by {{profile 2|zig|zig}}
The winner of the contest was {{y|aotsiwantytmnd|I Want YTMND}} by [[syncan]].
The rest of the AOTS contest entries that have not been removed by their creators can be found at YTMND.com by [http://www.ytmnd.com/list/?search=aots searching for AOTS].
After the results were announced, the contest was met with mass criticism.  Users took a shot at a few of the ytmnds due to stolen images.  Only "I Want YTMND" was met with positive reviews and became a moderators favorite.
