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

"Aiming for Wednesday" = posts about 4 hours later? Talk about ahead of schedule...

Okay, let's see here...

Post-reading Edit: Ah, a poem, and a good one at that! I usually don't enjoy poetry, but I liked this one quite a bit, so you know that's saying a lot! Will it best TGRF's entry or the coming challenger(s)? Only time will tell!

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

I was actually able to get a solid idea out pretty fast. I'm like the mechanic. "It's going to take 10 hours" = "It's going to take 5 hours, but if something goes wrong it'll take 10."

Oops, rolled a 1.

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

I'm sorry about that. I've been caught up with work and have my story at 3/4 done. I could have done by tomorrow if possible, just letting you know.

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

I'm thinking we should set up a rule to enforce the deadline. Perhaps it should be that a contestant needs to give an ETA on when he will be done. He can request an extension once or twice, but after that, the judging takes place when he said the entry would be done, wether or not it is in. That will prevent any more silent stretches of time with no action.

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

@ Those that are currently active in this thread, as well as some long-term hands: @TheAverageFan @Dysole @Bro-man @Tornado @Crixus33 @Marro_Warlord
I have arrived at the conclusion that something must be done about these month-long pauses. I have come up with a rule which I believe should be able to help with this. I have it below:
Quote:
If a contestant wishes to enter, they shall provide a due date. Barring any objections, they have until the given due date to submit their entry. This due date cannot be longer than one month from the time it is given.
The judge will judge at the latest due date. Anyone who did not get their entry in before then, will be excluded from the judging process.
All constestants are encouraged to really try to enter by their due date. If necessary, however, they may extend the date twice, and only twice
This rule would replace the current one week time limit rule.
This doesn't mean you HAVE to provide a due date. If you do NOT, however, and fail to enter before the latest due date that WAS provided, you will still be excluded.
This will require whoever is judging to be fairly strict with enforcing deadlines, otherwise the whole system just collapses.

I realize this might be a bit harsh, but the situation really is getting somewhat out of hand.
Thoughts, writers?

~TGRF.

EDIT: If no one has any opinions, I will go ahead and implement the rule, applicable starting with the next challenge.

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

Er, yeah, the deadline... We'll see if anyone can get their story out by whenever. You've been warned--I'm ready to do the judging with the 2 stories we got here already!! Expediency, ho!

~TAF, still deceptively lax.

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

Sounds like a good idea to me. That should allow this to go considerably faster.

Give it a whirl.

A cloud can change its semblance, yet retain its will
With the intimacy of destruction, One knows what it is to be alive
The empty sky holds no reflection, for sorrow
