2009-05-03 [sspiricc]: A Good Boy yes
It is how to say: I am a Good Boy
With a silly and mature weight.
Watch the clock
If it is plain to see, without a plate or joy
He is not in a prison. The sun rose.

2009-05-03 [sspiricc]: If this was not done correct please forget about it.
I am not using effort so take a crack at making it go: "Total the clock" and change the end. Or continues: "The soon sun rising",

2009-05-03 [sspiricc]: meh

2009-06-11 [Rice]:


Well done everyone!

2009-06-11 [Linderel]: Oi, it's spelled 'second'. :P

2009-06-11 [Rice]: GAH typo ever.

2009-06-11 [Chimes]: You always spell it like that :P

2009-06-11 [Rice]: It's a's like how I used to spell minute.
Minuet XD

2009-06-11 [Chimes]: Isn't Minuet a musical term? :D That's a great habit. Musical terms rock.

2009-06-11 [Rice]: I don't know I don't read or know musical terms...
I tend to get into the trend of spelling things certain ways, or I type to fast.

2009-06-11 [Linderel]: Yep.

  /ˌmɪnyuˈɛt/ [min-yoo-et]
1. a slow, stately dance in triple meter, popular in the 17th and 18th centuries.
2. a piece of music for such a dance or in its rhythm.

I thought it was spelled 'menuet' but that's Finnish confusing me... here it's 'menuetti'.

2009-06-11 [Rice]: Wait a minuet...
Sounds catchy.

2009-06-11 [Nioniel]: woohoo! I won!

2009-06-11 [Rice]: 8D well done, it was a wonderful poem.

2009-06-11 [Nioniel]: Thank you! I honestly didn't expect to win, especially given how much shorter my poem is in comparison to everyone else's.

2009-06-11 [Nioniel]: So I get a picture too?

2009-06-11 [Rice]: I am just speaking to him now about it.
That was out last contests prize but hopefully I can convince him to do it again 8D

2009-06-11 [organicparadox]: no timmmmmmmme! otherwise i would. life got in the way of all my altruistic intentions:/

2009-06-11 [Rice]: Dont worry..I'll think of another prize 8)

2009-06-11 [Nioniel]: okey dokey!

2009-06-13 [i'i]: when's the next contest going to be up?

2009-06-14 [dancingsheep]: Hey guys, I have a bit of an issue with my last post on here. Apparently, there's a bit of my text that I did not realize was actually lyrics to a song. I wrote the first piece and an English teacher of mine edited it and added in words. I actually used the first stanza in a paper, without citing it, because, I genuinely had no clue that it contained song lyrics. I'd like to say that I am very sorry! I had no idea, and now that I do, it shall be removed! Sorry, everyone!

2009-06-14 [Rice]: Don't worry about it, mistakes happen.
And as for the next contest, when I'm less busy 8/ so much work to do.

2009-06-14 [dancingsheep]: Goodness, thanks so much! I really felt terrible when it was brought to my attention. As for the busy feeling, I am there myself.

2009-06-15 [Nioniel]: W007! I'm a judge!

2009-06-16 [dancingsheep]: Is that in l33t? Lolz.

2009-06-16 [Nioniel]: hehe, yesh.

2009-06-16 [dancingsheep]: You just got ten points! XD

2009-06-16 [Nioniel]: Alright!
How many points do I need to be able to redeem them for goods?

2009-06-16 [dancingsheep]: Well, naturally 100. But, that might raise your mana. :O

2009-06-17 [Nioniel]: Thanks for posting, [Rice]!
And I sure do love me some mana!

2009-06-17 [Rice]: It's alright.

2009-06-17 [Akayume]: Wha, I remember this. o____O I should enter..

2009-06-17 [Nioniel]: Yes you should!

2009-06-17 [Akayume]: I haven't written good poetry in a long time.. This might help. (:

2009-06-17 [Nioniel]: :)
Hopefully it will be fun for you as well!

2009-07-24 [Rice]: Deadlind extended to 24th August!

2009-09-02 [Nioniel]: So then this is closed?

2010-10-20 [ziddystardust]: It would be great if this were opened again...any chance of that in the near future?

2010-10-20 [Rice]: Anything is possible. I'll just have to run it by my co-moderator [Nioniel].
