So you concur with the 1 month idea, then?

~TGRF.
Yeah. One month should be enough. Depending on the amount of work I get, (not much so far) I should be able to write something. Having a set deadline would be of much use.

Oops, rolled a 1.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Okay then. I think we're all more or less in agreement about one month. I think EL might like a bit shorter, and TAF might like a bit longer, but we all agree one month will work.
Now that we are in agreement on that, I believe it's time to focus on the titles. We can't very well figure out what the titles should actually be until we know what we're going to award them for, so we should figure that out first.
As I've mentioned before, a title for every win is going to result in a lot of identical titles, which I don't think anyone wants. We want more or less UNIQUE titles, which is kind of their whole point. Therefore, I propose we award titles for the following: (Note: You may wish to review how the ranking system works. You can find it in the Index.)
  • The best ranked in the competition. This will be the author with the best average placement. This currently belongs to BiggaBullfrog, who has an average of 1.5. TAF has a perfect score, but needs one more entry to qualify. This title is a bit of a no-brainer, as the title of the competition is literally 'are you the best author?'
  • Those that average below (meaning better than) 2nd place (aka, 2.0). This is actually hard to do. There are only three authors that have entered in this contest that would qualify for this title (Bigga, Dysole, SoA).
  • Prompt Master. This is a bit of a special title. The prompt master is the one who gave out the prompt which in turn got the most entries. This title currently belongs to Tornado, and I don't think anyone is about to unseat him. This is just info I happen to have lying around, we don't really need to turn it into a title. I'll leave it up to you.
  • The person who has submitted the most entries. This currently belongs to me, closely followed by Bro-man. (Note: Because of the way I compute the rank, default wins will not count as an 'entry'.)
Those are my thoughts. I'm sure there are more potential titles, and I will post them if any occur to me. Please post your own ideas.

Note: Because of the way I rank people, it is very difficult for me to determine such things as who has the most wins. Besides, this title would be unfair to someone with a better record, but simply fewer entries.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

I concur with these Title ideas, although I still think a few basic titles wouldn't hurt either such as 5 wins or someone who's won 3 competitions in a row. For those however, I would suggest starting with a blank slate, meaning nobody who's won 5 before or 3-in-a-row before would automatically get one. Just to even the playing field a little.

Do note that it is difficult for me to determine who has five wins or who has won 3 times in a row. The current system does not count wins. It counts the total score of placements, and then averages it out over the number of times entered.

It is in a spreadsheet. If we decide we want to do that, I can probably figure out a way to compute it.

Out of curiosity Dysole, how would you do that in Excel? Or were you referring to a different program?

Well I'm not certain about your system but there's a couple ways to make it work depending on what is set up.

I am cool with giving TGRF title power.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Feel free to change my title to Prompt Master. Well deserved IMO.

I may be able to match it someday if I ever win again.
