[Mar 2016] - Nightmares - Voting Thread
« on: April 01, 2016, 05:37:41 PM »
It's time to vote on March's Writing Contest: Nightmares

We got 14 entries this month, most on the very last days - I knew you wouldn't let me down!
Thanks to all of you for participating!

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your three favourite 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, 16-19: 4 votes, 20-25: 5 votes, 26+: 6 votes

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in a few months.

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

Sorry, the other one broke down on me, and despite being a mod, I can't even delete a thread >:(

I don't want to vote because of a lack of decisive opinion. Its going to take all month to narrow it down to three votes.

I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

Voted. It was an easy decision earlier this month, but several last minute entries forced me to make some tough decisions.
All of the stories were really good this month, and many left me wanting more.

Wow. Actually just realised I forgot to vote on that and it was going to go over my head.
