    Announcement ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Poetry Contest Announcements ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest' started by thirdwind, May 23, 2014.

    This thread will be used to make any announcements or reminders for the Poetry Contest. I figure having one thread for this is better and will keep this place relatively free of clutter.

    The first reminder is that Poetry Contest #244 ends tomorrow (in about 32 hours), so please get your poem to me ASAP if you're planning on entering.

    Also, for the next contest (#245), which will start Sunday (in 2 days), I'll randomly choose a theme from the theme suggestions thread. The winner of contest #244 will choose the theme for contest #246.

    I had accidentally closed the poll for Poetry Contest #244 so that people weren't able to vote. The issue should be fixed now.

    Submissions and voting close in less than 2 days, so vote in the previous contest and get your poems in for the current contest ASAP.

    There are four (4) days left before voting ends and submissions for the current contest are due. Not many people have voted so far, so please consider taking 5-10 minutes to read through all the entries for the previous contest and vote for the one you think is best ASAP. Thanks.

    Just reminded everyone that the current contest and voting end in a couple of days.

    Also, instead of having the contest every 2 weeks, we're now switching to having it every 3 weeks. This affects all three contests (poetry, short story, and flash fiction). This is done so that there's no overlap between the deadlines of the contests.

    There seems to be a problem with the poetry contest that ended today. For some reason, I'm getting an error when trying to open the thread. This probably has something to do with the anonymizer system. When Daniel created the system, he suggested that I move all entries from the entry thread to the voting thread after the deadline. You may have noticed that when I did this for the last contest, my post got moved all the way to the bottom even though I started the thread. This means "Anonymizer" is now listed as the thread starter. This might be what's causing the error. I've PMed one of the mods about it, and I'm hoping this gets sorted today. I'll keep you guys updated.

    There are less than two days left before the current contest ends. The same goes for voting for the previous contest.

    The current contest ends in about a week, and we need more entries. So please consider entering. Also, don't forget to vote in the last contest.

    Any more takers for the current contest? It ends in a few days, and we only have 2 entries so far. We need more! Remember that the theme ("skid row") is up for interpretation.

    Also, the next contest is supposed to end January 3rd. Since this is the holiday season, I realize that some people may be very busy. So if there's enough interest, I can extend the deadline for the next contest by an additional three weeks. Let me know by replying in this thread.

    Because of the Summer Writing Contest, there will no poetry contest for a while so that members can prepare entries for the other contest.

    If you are sitting at home tonight covering the front door candy detail, there's a Halloween poetry contest over here dying for more entries. Try your hand at something new if you've never tried poetry. Unless you're afraid that is. :ghost:Bwahahahaha.

    And if you are really brave click on the pumpkin avatar for a surprise.

    I think @Wowzie should have gotten the win in the last contest. :agreed:
