Since everyone has posted their story titles, mine is "The Winds of Time", if anyone cares. x3

Also, I wouldn't mind the one thread idea, but the index thread with linkage would be lovely as well. C: Just my two cents on that matter. :p

Just made it. I think. That's what the time zone converter said anyway. If not, I'm screwed.

Yeah Redstar, just in the nick of time.

All right everyone, no more entries please! Gummy, Astinus, and me are now going to go ahead and judge the entries. Should probably take us a week or two until we're done with the results. However, don't rush us. Gummy and Astinus also have real life stuff to take care of and not only I have stuff to do but am very busy with another contest at Serebii. So yeah, be patient with us even though the Get Together is over. ;

EDIT: Dang it Mizan, you have to post before me. D: Well, I would accept it even if it's a few minutes late as sometimes the forums can get laggy. However, not sure if Gummy will. We'll have to wait and see then.

If you're five to ten minutes off, I think they shouldcut you some slack. Allowances have to be made for time zone differences/clock inconsistencies, and for actually sending the entry... Heck, it took me 15 minutes to format my story right in the PM...

So. Looks like we should head back to the Lounge?

TL:DR: Bother them as much as possible until they come up with results XD

Lol, joking aside take your time ;)

Also, when will we be able to see everyone's fic? If it were done now though, I don't think you guys would want to see the thread, so as not to get 3rd party opinions from other poeple. idk

Quiiiiick question... When you all are done judging, are you going to PM the contestants with the results or are we just gonna have to keep an eye on the thread for the next week or so? Just wondering. n.n

I remember Gummy posting he'll just post the points in this thread and PM you guys the reviews. I could be wrong, though. ;

I noticed the thread was unlocked again, so I'm hoping I'm not being a hassle or anything in asking this. This seems relevant, but if not feel free to call me on it...

How are the entries being judged? It seems likely that with three judges and three categories to have points awarded to, those points will be taken and averaged. Is this the case, or is there some other method I haven't thought of?

Well, for me, this is how I'll judge and award the points:

Grammar: I'm checking to see how many grammar and spelling mistakes you guys do. If you don't have too much, I'll award high. If quite a few, it depends.

*Literary Devices Elements: This I'll just say what I like and what needs work. If I like descritption, I'll mention it and why. If I like characters, I'll mention that. If I think your writing style needs work, I'll mention that and will try to give advice.

Prompt: This I'll reward base the underlying idea you have that relates to the prompt. Also, how creative it is and if I like it a lot.

As for Gummy and Astinus, I know they'll do it differently, so this should be interesting.

Hm, not actually sure. Could be either that or we'll just add up all the points and whoever gets the most points wins (like how the writing contests at Serebii does). Might talk to the judges about that when I get the chance.

*Sorry Astinus, a little side joke. ;

I pretty much do exactly what Bay does. (Mind twins!) For the second section, I focus on Plot, Description, and Characterization.

I really can't answer how we'll decide on a winner though. That's up to Gummy's jurisdiction, since it is his contest.

Don't worry. I smiled.

Also, just wondering, but do you have a judging method. For example, what I'm doing for the Grammar score is to give everyone a free-be for the first 7 mistakes I see, then I subtract 1 point for every addition mistake. As for the Literary Elements, I split it up into Plot, Description, and Characterization, and give each sub-category 3 points, plus that extra point which I may or may not give. This way if I really like the Plot, I give it a 3, sort-of like gets a 2, sub-par plot gets a 1, and little to no plot gets a 0. As for the prompt, I dunno what to do with that; I might just give it a score out of 5 and multiply by 2. Anyways, that's my basic plan that I thought I'd share with you, in case you wanted to use it.
Just a c/p of a VM I sent to Astibears. Also, after learning the rest of my week will be a little busy, I have decided to simply judge the stories without full fledged reviews (that's just me, Asty and Bay will still give you reviews if you want). However, once all is said and done and you'd still like a review for your particular story, simple PM/VM me and I will gladly give a nice, detailed critique.

As for winners being chosen, I'm just going to average the scores of all three judges and round off to the nearest tenth. The top two highest scores are our winner. In the case of a tie, all tying entries get their deserved prize (for example, if two stories tie for first and there is a clear winner for second, those who tied will both receive the first place emblem).

Yeah, we already mention how all the stories will be posted in one sticky thread, but the contestants can post their stories to make editing and reviews easier.

Gummy said we won't have the results for another couple of weeks as we have twenty entries to look over and score. So yeah, no winner yet and it won't be for a bit.

And Gummy, noticed you put iDawg's name twice in the contestants section. O.o

Just to let everyone know, I send in my scores to Gummy already. Have to say, impressed with the entries, especially when you guys only had three/four days to do this. I don't think I can do a good story in that time frame. XD
