[SEP 2020] - Steampunk - Voting Thread
« on: October 04, 2020, 01:40:50 PM »
It's time to vote on the September Writing Contest: "Steampunk"

This time we got 6 entries - thanks to all who participated!

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your TWO 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, 6-10 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 (I'm still hopeful of getting the access to do this...)

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

I'm glad there were enough stories to let us vote for two - I wouldn't have known how to choose between my favourites!

Yes, last time we had 2 votes was in May, I really prefer that :D

Placed a vote for just one because I can't decide on a second one, but will re-read closer to end of month to see if I haven't changed my mind.

Finally voted!
Of course, when I can vote for 2, you give me 3 great stories I could easily have voted for ::) ;D I went with my heart...

This month everything is very balanced, it can go in a number of ways - 5 days to go, 7 people voted so far!

Might be time for me to re-read then, see if I can change my mind and tip the scales between the runner ups.

It seems you're not the only one who only voted once, as we have 8 voters but only 14 votes.

Yeah... I might keep it like this too. My two runner ups just have equal amounts of perks and drawbacks and it's unfair to pick one over the other. I'll make sure to let them know my cruel decision xD

1 vote separating first and second place...
Will there be another person voting? Will they change the situation?
