    Welcome Thirdwind to the Contest Admins :)

    Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Wreybies, May 7, 2014.

    Thirdwind will be taking over the Poetry Contest which kinda' lapsed for a bit. Thirdwind has been a mini-mod for us in the past and a proven asset to the team. I know he'll be happy to get feedback from the forum as to how to get the Poetry Contest going again. Wish him well. :cool:

    Thanks, Wrey.

    As of right now, I'm planning on starting the next contest this Friday, and poems will be due in about two weeks on May 25th (Sunday). How does that sound? And should we have anonymous submissions like we do for the other contests? Let me know if you have any other comments/questions.

    I also noticed that the poll is still open for the previous contest, and there's currently a 3-way tie. It'd be great if we could break the tie so that the winner can get his/her medal and pick the next theme. The poll will remain open for the next 36 hours so that everyone has a chance to read the poems and vote.

    Congratulations, @thirdwind! You're an ace, and I want you to know you had my full support when your promotion was being discussed. (In spite of the fact that you're dead to me in another thread. :p)

    :)

    Technically, I wasn't promoted. I already had mod powers in Book Discussion from back when I was running the short story/book clubs. It's just that no one noticed I was a mini-mod until recently. :eek: :p

    I just noticed we got new smileys. Sweet. :love::wtf:

    Still missing my fave - the "munching popcorn" smiley.

    Oh, and congrats, @thirdwind.

    We should have a smiley mini-mod who does nothing but create smileys for the forum.

    A mini-mod? I always assumed he was average sized.

    Good show, thirdwind. Enjoy!

    Congrats @thirdwind, the contest sub-forum is complete. Hopefully you won't be like the drummers in Spinal Tap. :unsure: ;)

    If something should happen to me, @minstrel and his army of squirrels should be the number one suspects.

    "Army of Squirrels" would be a good name for a rock band. :)
