[AUG 2020] - Dialogue - Voting Thread
« on: September 05, 2020, 04:07:19 PM »
It's time to vote on the August Writing Contest: "Dialogue"

This time we got 4 entries - thanks to all who participated!

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your favourite entry 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! :)
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

Hard to choose! Could have gone either way on two of them.

Thank you all, thoroughly enjoyed each of these entries and it was very hard to choose but have voted. :)

Just removed vote because  number of votes for each entrant  are showing already  not just which I voted for.
@ScarletBea, @xiagan please could you fix this?

Sorry guys, it might have changed the option when I changed the end date and I didn't notice :-[

I've put it back and reset the votes, so could the 2 people who had already voted do so again?

It wasn't me, there were already two votes in when I tried, so don't know who besides Jmack.

It wasn't me as I'd only read the stories and voted this afternoon.

One week to vote!

I just voted, and loved the story I chose :D
I also liked 2 more, but there was something (that I'll tell afterwards) why I didn't vote for them.
