A question about fanfiction contests.....

Post by trboturtle » Thu Mar 17, 2011 7:55 pm

While the mods are trying to figure out how to change my access, I'd figure I'd get the ball rolling and see what you guys want on a few things over the next week or so. First up, how many Fanfiction contest do you want? Please make you peference known sometimes in the next three weeks......

Hi, we have to take into account the other contests (art, design,minis painting etc...).

In the past we had problems of attendance while 2 contests overlaped (yes, RL is an issue).
So, I would think 2 contests per year are fine, and another ongoing project is called for.

I don't really have time or a place to paint, but I can submit fan fics, even if I'm overseas. I'd say that I agree with Shalom Itay. Twice a year is good, to allow for the painting contests and such.

I think twice a year is perfect.

Could we get this sticky at the top of the page? I would do it myself, but the technology hates me....... :(

Yes they have! And as soon as I can coordinate with the other directors so I'm not stepping on their contests, I'll see about pulling together a new fanfiction contest!! :D
