Does anyone want fanfiction contests?

Post by trboturtle » Fri Feb 15, 2013 2:48 pm

Well, the last two attempts at a fanfiction contest produced excatly ONE entry.... :(

Aftyer some thought, I am at a loss for any way to garner more attention and more entries. So, I'm throwing out to you, the BTU public. Do you want fanfiction contests, and if so, in what form? I'm willing to listen to anyone's suggestions and I'm willing to discuss this.

So, anyone have thoughts or suggestions to bring forward?

Will have a think...

The fanfiction forum appears to be hidden from the general public, unless I am demonstrating my normal lack of technical skills :oops:

Maybe a wider audience might pull more people in?

Anyway, as I say I will give it some thought

Cheers

I'm willing to write something this time around.
It would help if it's a bit less constrained in subject matter.

From what I can see from this section, there is very little traffic. Maybe because Guests can't see the Fan Fiction? Not sure, but seems as though the interest has dropped?

Will keep posting myself in any case :D

I'd love to post a fanfic. I tried once before and the contest got cancelled, but I love it. Just let me know and maybe if it's something that's easy for me to work with that would be good. The last couple of subjects have been kind of limited.

The last two contest attempts were special operations and pirates. No restriction on faction, time, or location. How less constrained are we talking about? No theme subject?

I am at a loss.....

How about an open contest?
Only rules:
max PG-13
must be BattleTech related.
minimum word count.

just a suggestion.
