Just two stories? It seems people don't like sending their stories in April elimination. :p

Somehow, it seems not to be a contest, between only two stories... who will get the bronze? The rules use the word "among", do they not, doesn't that imply three or more?

Wow, it's the fourth time in a row that there have been only two stories entered in for April

04-06-2010, 06:24 AM
Yeah....two stories are hardly enough for any sort of a competition.

Didn't we once skip this month's round altogether -- accepting that there's something very busy about this Spring season, consolidating stories for the early summer contest? I mean if the participants were willing...
I do like the design of the contest however; the pace seems right and then the way the final is conducted -- allows room for the busyness of the holiday spirit. It is a clever contrivance.

The rules of the competition clearly states how it is run and there is no minimum or maximum limit to the number of stories that can enter.

So, please carry on with the voting, rather than discussing the number of stories submitted.

I think this is good as it makes it easier for everyone to read and vote.

Here, here; and how succinctly put. A simple edict from the onerous Ogress stills the mindless meanderings of the minions! Of course you're right, Scheherazade... but then again, discussions are encouraged, are they not?

Half the month's gone and we have a tie!

04-20-2010, 08:43 AM
And only four votes :frown2:

Oh my God, I didn't even realize this was going on. I'll have to read them over the weekend. Let's get voting people.

7 days left. The clock is ticking, people. Vote today!

04-25-2010, 05:39 PM
Last 5 days...

Considering that we have only two stories to be read, I was hoping for more votes this month.

Going once...

05-04-2010, 05:35 PM
Going twice...

I must apologize. I have been busy and I sort of missed this. Congratulations to the winner.
