View Full Version : Contest~ [applicable entries]

A member requested a certain type of contest over the PM. I informed Kyosuke and he gladly complied to the idea~

This contest is mainly for Poetry/lyrics. I'm hesitant into thinking if putting the two in one category is a good idea, since the difference between them is relatively minor. I'm also unsure whether or not this should be a short story contest. If anyone has comments/concerns/questions, feel free to post away.

This thread is for people who wish to participate. Please do not post your finished work here. I merely want to clarify how many participants are willing to submit something. I don't want to host a contest between a measly two~three contestants...if that somehow does happen, I'm going to be postponing this.

The general idea is a bit vague so far; I'll try to add more information later on. Meanwhile, feel free to sign up. The deadline -> somewhere at the end of March/Beginning of April. This includes the time you need to work on your piece. By that time, this thread will prolly either be closed/forgotten. XP

I still need time to pick the judges, which will supposedly include myself and Kyosuke (if he agrees). If you wish to be a judge, please send me a link to one of your works and a sufficient reason.

...I'll type of rules later~ ^_^;

So posts should either be:

-comments
-clarification
-requests

edit2- Rules

One piece per contestant. No multiple works, please.
Please respect each other's work when posted in due time.
Your work must be submitted the Second of April.
Note that this is not the official date; it may be changed due to some circumstances, but for now, I think roughly one month is sufficient.
Don't spam up any thread I create (posts shall be deleted). Post only relevant things.
Don't yell at me (the judges in general). If you have any concerns regarding the given results or the situation, state so reasonably.
Incoherent babbling isn't loved, btw, XP
Post your own work. Plagiarism is NOT tolerated on any level (plus you'll be disqualified, which really sucks~)
The rules will be edited if I need changes (which will prolly happen sometimes soon).
*sigh* One cookie per person. Don't ask. ._.

edit3- official contest of Poetry/Lyric. Now I need to gather some judges. ~~ *advertises on sig*
Judges- Me. 22sa. Dactylus. Paul. Judge applications = closed.

This looks interesting. It would be fun if it were a poetry/short story contest, but of course, that's only my opinion...the more options, the more people you might have who are interested. I'll definitely keep checking on this...

I need about three at minimum, including myself. Four would be nice. Five will prolly result in too many disagreements, although I'm not quite sure.

22sa- Um..let's see...Arigatou, 22sa-chan? XD Lyrics are similar to poetry, except it's based off of songs and such. I'll explain later. Thanks.

Good sir/lady, I think you'd have to be emo, devoid of any sense of literature, or perhaps merely unable to keep your attention focused long enough to read/write quality short stories to prefer poetry.

This is the truth.

And sure Lily, I'll judge since you took the time to ask.

Haha...liking poetry more than prose...who ever heard of such poppycock? Hahaha...

Lily
February 22nd, 2006, 05:21 PM
Dac, be nice.

Thank you again for accepting the position. I really appreciate it~

Now I don't need any more judges. I don't know how long I should keep accepting contestants...eh, perhaps I won't set a limit. Besides, by April 2, it'll be too late to enter anyhow.

Again, thanks to everyone who signed up. ^_^

I would be a judge.. but currently with the way everything is working right now with school and stuff going on with my life.. I barely have time to go on PC nowadays.. which explains my inactiveness... but Lily, I still wish you the best of luck with the success of this contest. ^^'

I would love to be a judge, but considering the fact that you said you didn't need any additional judges pushes that hope away... *Decides to unleash his inner Simon Cowell on his own writing...* If any positions appear, tell me please!

Anyway, I didn't realize that I had quite such of a talent for writing until just recently, maybe two years ago. Simply because of my writings, many people refer to me as the "Hopeless Romantic," and a "Forward Philosopher." I got the philosopher quote for this (I put in a card for my Dad I made):
"Though our view may become clouded with the shadows of the sky, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel to halt our fears, and to fulfill our dreams."
I have dozens and dozens of papers of things I've written, particularly music lyrics (my Dad is a singer, and I sing also (but I'm not famous yet!)), and I would like to enter this contest. Is there any prize, or is it just bragging rights?

Yeah, actually I do. I write a lot of it. Heh, that wouldn't be very good qualification though, would it?

Just so happens I got accepted into the Bemidji State University's anthology for teen poetry in Minnesota. And I've gotten in some ok vanity anthologies, but they're really nothing to be proud of =X

If you're willing to accept me, I'd love to judge ;P

edit- eventidemjj, I'm so sorry! I didn't see your question at the end. I truly am sorry. x_x And yes, it's mostly bragging rights~ Unless someone can think of a good prize *over the internet >=D*..or would you rather have me mail money instead? XD

Oh dear, I got served, didn't I? Yes, yes I got owned! Never have I been so struck down by so righteous and so just a force as your passionate retort! Wow, let me just say Eliana, your explosion of rage and witty taunting at my own opinion has truly taught me to respect other peoples opinions! Indeed!

I apologize so much for trying to say what I thought before, obviously it’s not condoned by your mighty, supreme wisdom over these matters. You have been writing since you were EIGHT after all. I'll try never to be so irreverent toward you again.

I mean, God forbid I should use sarcasm, right? How cruel it would have been if everything I said in my previous post was nothing but a playful jab! Dear me, but that would be unthinkable! I’m so very, very sorry for my ignorance. Please, next time you disagree with my opinion, feel free to once again mock me while jabbering on about the importance of point of views again. I’ll make sure to, again, succumb without any resistance at all.

...that was so purposefully ironic it was funny. Anyways, please don't fight anymore you two. This is getting very, very close to crossing the line into a flame-war. And if a participant and a judge don't handle themselves well in the Entry Thread, it may be a sign they're too immature to handle the contest.

So please, let's all keep our opinions to ourselves, this is simply a thread to announce your entrance into this writing contest ;<

As soon as:

-all the judges agree on a type of format/method
-22sa's ban is lifted (since he's banned, obviously we can't do the above..)

I apologize for the extended wait, and thank you for your patience so far. .__.;

It's alright, Lily. I was just wondering. =P No big deal.

And...

umm...are you still accepting contestants? can i join still? if you guys are still accepting...

Actually, no. You're a bit late. The contestants deadline was a whiiiiile ago, and the entry deadline was on the 2nd, so...yeah. Hope to see ya in it if we have one of those again. ;D

April 6th, 2006, 01:06 PM
Yeah, 22sa's ban kinda screwed things up.

But it's not his fault ;x [It's his fault!]You mean my abscence. Getting banned doesn't make me unreachable. I apologize, anyways, for receiving the 4 day ban extension. Though it really should have been a permanent ban since they suspected me of evading. What cowards >O

I read all the entries and am read to judge, so ready when you guys are, Paul, Lily, Dact :P

I just wanted to know if their was a freaking date set out yet. That is all. But no screw me. One question turned bad by the Lady Godess of the site. Ohh and I was being patient. I just haven't been on in a while and wanted to know if anything changed.

Can we please try to rationalize? I hosted this contest by the sole request of you (yes, that's right, you), and I don't think it's fair to digress and berate me like so when I'm trying my best to be a satisfactory hostess. ._.

Look-

There are no specific dates, so please stop asking for one. .-.;

This is my tired self, and I did tell you this politely.

I just wanted to see if there was one gosh.

Tell me, Mr. Zerro, what did I do to deserve one single participant's childish impatience? I apologize if I offended you with such imperative order, but..

does it sound like it. does it really. ok shut your mouth. now calm your self down ok good. take your time mental is a efect.

Lily, if you're already so frustrated, maybe you should close the thread or something and give away some warnings for ... I dunno...flaming? *cough*

But yeah... I'm expecting the results, too... but you needn't be showing your impatience to a thread like this. Besides, that one certain Valentine's Day poetry contest last year lasted for about 3 months... (you remember that one, Lily? 8D)

Meh...I didn't expect the results to be up, so I'll just sit here.


Actually on the poetry topic, I was just modded to be the poetry adminstrator at a site with 6000 members (Yes, Bigger than PC. Much bigger.) I henceforth feel no need to be here anymore, but I still will. o_O The poetry forum there is actually alive *gasp*

Uh... Zerro, a couple of things:

1. Don't swear
2. Eli is a girl

Just don't mind her if she would be subliminally advertising a forum or anything. And just don't go offtopic, please.

I know she is a girl it is a phrase. i didn't swear. hell is in the Bible.

oni flygon
April 13th, 2006, 05:09 PM
The phrase is "An eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth" and not what you said. And "hell" can be used as a swear word when used in proper context, regardless of its position in the Bible. And that proper context is what you used.

Anyways, Lily take your time, we all are tired...=/>O.. I'm not tired. And Lily's been really ill. As for the other two, they're... umm.. lazy I guess, so I must apologize on behave of our judges for lack of decision-making. Sorry, again.

To speed this up, how much detail do you guys want us to give? Or, how do you want your poems to be marked?

I had originally just wanted to give a rating out of 5.0 for everybody's poem and did so, but when I talked to the other judges about this it was agreed that my simple method would be too unconvincing, so again, I've read and evaluated all your poems already, I just need an estimate of how much detail you guys want.

Woahh, what's that guys? It's the end bell! That means that the contest is OVER, ladies and gentlemen, and the winner is Zerro! Congrats, man, congrats. I know you worked hard, and it all paid off in spades.

You are officially the most annoying person on this thread.

But hey, now that you've got the gold, you can stop acting like a complete moron. Obviously it was all an act, since no one person can possibly have such a sheer lack of patience coupled a grasp on grammar on par with that of an eight year old. Not only that, but the utter audacity to berate judges and explode in a burst of blazing, random fury when given a reasonable answer to ones question? Haha, preposterous! Evolution would've had to been REALLY drunk to drop the ball like that.

But it's okay now, you can stop acting and come out of your guise to show us all that you DO have an intelligence worthy of a human being!

...Right?

In all seriousness, had to throw that on the table, sorry. Hey people, I haven't been here in a month or two, but I'm a judge. Bribes can be discussed via PM. Thank you.

But for all means yes I am annoying woopdydoo. Good smart thing to say. Though my neice is only four and she would say what I am saying now. You are a fu. leave it at that shall we partner? Have a nice day ok. Evoulution must have been rong then for the dumb a** woo hoo for you wouldn't it? Ohh and yes I am sorry.

Woah, woah, woaaaah there buddy. Where did all this hostility come from, huh? I was telling people that you WEREN'T actually an impatient idiot with the anger control skills of a feral dog with rabies! But hey man, SINCE I'm on your side and all, lemme give you some helpful pointers.

So me asking a question is dumb? Is it really.

For future reference, my good man, ALL questions need to end with question marks. You know, those things you seem to hate.

But hey, since I'm a "fu" and all (by the way, using the same insult as your four year old niece doesn't show much for you), I might as well go ahead and note that you really DO need to cool your jets, guy. As evidenced here:

does it sound like it. does it really. ok shut your mouth. now calm your self down ok good. take your time mental is a efect.

I mean, hey, that doesn't even make sense, guy! You can derive anger and frustration from it, but it doesn't really seem to have taken a tangible form. But it's okay, because by this point, you were still pretending to be a moron, right? Yeah, must have been intentional.

Well, that's all I have to say about that, so let's go ahead and drop this argument, shall we? Judging needs to get under way and all!

Just stop it. Swear evasion isn't allowed, by the way, if meant as an insult. Zerro, try to suppress yourself from retaliating and simply ignore/PM. Dactylus, you'll have to take your sarcasm reasoning somewhere else; Zerro doesn't evidently doesn't like it. x=

Zerro, Lily already told you to keep it down already. If you're easily provoked by someone like Dac, I'm not sure what to do with you. So if he criticizes your grammar, why can't you just divert your attention away from him and he'll jut get tired of it.
