Contest is closed now! :P

Voting about to go up. I'm so glad I'm not voting this month, 7 amazing entries, I'd never be able to pick between them!

As per polite request I have included the names of the stories beside their author in the poll, to make it easier to find the one you're voting for.

My story is still not going up for the vote though; doesn't seem very fair when I am running the competition (I never get votes in these things anyway :P).

Why so few votes?

Voting is open all month. It takes time to read all 7 entries so there very well may be more votes coming as people get a chance to read them. :)

Why so few votes?

Nine votes so far?  That doesn't seem too bad actually.

If you look back over previous challenges, some have more entrants than votes.  Which is a bit weird. ???

I don't know about anyone else, but from my perspective as a reader I don't really look at the writers corner of the forum as often as other boards so I don't always remember to read all of the writing challenge entries in time to vote - I don't vote for any unless I have read them all. I think if the writing challenge was placed under a child board then I would be able to see on the main forum index page when a new entry had been submitted which would prompt me to read it and therefore keep up with them through the month and be able to vote.

I shall pass it on to Overlord, he's the one with the child board granting powers.

I will agree with what Jeni said. Until I started coming to the Writers Corner, I dont think I ever even noticed the writing competition.

Yeh, me too. It gets neglected in this part of the forum, I think.
