[Oct 2014] - Abandoned places - Voting Thread
« on: November 01, 2014, 09:48:09 PM »
It's time to vote on October's Writing Contest: Abandoned Places!

There were seven entries this time. October always is a busy month, so that's quite good! Thanks a lot for those great stories! :)

Little breakdown for how often which picture was chosen:

Path to Gothic Choir: 0
The passage: ll
Old Town: lll
Cavern City: 0
When the Museum Becomes History: l
Tristram Cathedral: l

Personally, I would have chosen Cavern City. ;)

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your two 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

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

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

Congrats :D

I'm curious, though. It says 9 members voted, but there are only 15 votes, which means 3 people only used 1 of their 2 votes: does it mean they don't realise they can vote twice, or they found the other stories not worth of any vote?
Even if there's one story I like above all rest, I always vote for the second (or third) one too, as I believe votes are important for the writers.
