[Nov 2015] - Mighty Beasts - Voting Thread
« on: December 01, 2015, 06:56:25 PM »
It's time to vote on November's Writing Contest: Mighty Beasts

We got 13 entries this month.

Thanks to all of you for participating - we've been having quite a lot of entries this year, and even in the months where it seems there will be less, you come up with the goods at the last minute :D (once again, we had 4 entries on the last day hehe)

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! :)

I just re-read mine and found at least 1 typo. Ah well. Funny how you can't see errors until something is submitted.

Voted!

You people write too many good stories. Every month I find it difficult to choose. I wanted to vote for far more than three, simply due to quality, but ultimately I went with the three that had the most subjective appeal.

I have to read and vote in the next week, I won't have time after that.

And apparently my powers have disappeared, despite being a mod here :( I can no longer see the votes and the number of voters and all those things I could see last month.
Some wicked witch has it in for me >:(

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 (already)! Great stories, as always!

Now I can focus on writing my Young Love story and reading Nation (I really need to pick up the pace on that one). Well actually there's still a few more things I need to do first, but then, in a day or so, I'm going to be all over those two. I promise.  :)
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Finally read and voted. Was a tough choice. One I voted for I really liked but has bad flaws - you'll get a whipping in critics - but still liked too much to not vote for it, but then I have two tied for 4th position but we only get 3 votes... tsss.
Yeah, tough month.

You guys make things always so difficult ;D

Already?  :o   How is this 'already'?
I must have been half-asleep when I wrote that.  ::)
