[Dec 2014] - Religion - Voting Thread
« on: January 01, 2015, 08:05:28 PM »
It's time to vote on December's Writing Contest: Religion!

I don't think we EVER had fifteen entries in the contest. Wow! You guys amaze me. :)

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your three favorite entries in this thread. You won't be able to see the vote breakdown until the vote closes, so spread the word for others to come and vote! We do ask that if you entered, to vote for someone else.

The key for the numbers of votes is this: 1-5 entries: 1 vote, 5-10 entries: 2 votes, 11-15 entries: 3 votes, 16 and more: 4 votes

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in Spring 2015.

Good luck to all our entrants and thank you for taking the time to read the stories and vote! :)

Big reminder to vote for December's stories.  Xiamen is very polite.  I'm not  >:(. VOTE  ;)

Anyone can vote, yes?  Not just people who submit a story.
How many people do we usually get voting?
Can we set a record this month?   ;D

Thanks everyone and congratulations to Jmacyk.  I thought it was a really good month and tough to pick from them all - even with 3 votes to use.
