2011-05-03 [SilverFire]: Good luck with this! :)
2011-05-03 [kians mummy]: though i haven't got anyone to join yet
2011-05-03 [Linderel]: You might want to advertise a bit.
2011-05-03 [Sunrose]: Theme: What about celebrating the death of someone?
Not that I would, but someone might..
2011-05-03 [kians mummy]: That's a good idea i will do that thanks. X)
2011-05-03 [Linderel]: It might also be a good idea to re-word the bit about quality issues. :) There's still a stray "limerick" there.
2011-05-26 [Nioniel]: This is the third invite I've gotten, please stop sending me invites as well. :)
2011-05-26 [Mortified Penguin]: Please continue to send me invites.
2011-05-26 [Rainbow Dragonflies]: Please cease sending me invites. >3>
2011-05-27 [Alexi Ice]: You can pick and chose who you invite. Some people don't appreciate wiki spam. (I would know, I do it sometimes too.)
2011-05-28 [Mortified Penguin]: Not if you're inviting an entire forum.
2011-05-28 [Alexi Ice]: You could just, you know, not invite an entire forum...>>
2011-05-28 [Mortified Penguin]: I'm sure that would be mighty effective in getting people to come to your wiki.
2011-05-28 [Alexi Ice]: All she's doing now is getting people to come here and say 'stop inviting me.' It's bad publicity
2011-05-28 [kamisch]: Actually...thi
2011-05-28 [Linderel]: This way or that, the rules need updating. :P
2011-05-28 [perfumed ignition]: If I submitted that wrong, let me know.
2011-05-29 [kians mummy]: thats fine for now x)
2011-05-29 [pegasus1000]: From a darker time in my life.
2011-05-29 [kians mummy]: Thats a good one
2011-06-02 [Kaimee]: Gee I'm confused Sammie, I have an old poem I would love to submit here, but the rules say it must not have already been entered in an Official Elftown competition, and it has been! :(
Also, it's not a limerick! :( Are these rules important, or are they copies of other competition rules that you could maybe update?
Because I would love to participate, but can't until you update the rules :(
2011-06-04 [kians mummy]: there, and any alterations you wish to make, you can do so
2011-06-08 [haldirrox]: What's the due date?
2011-06-08 [kians mummy]: it says below the poems
2011-06-25 [perfumed ignition]: I'm sorry, I thought I had it right the first time. My bad. :(
2011-06-25 [perfumed ignition]: Did I get it that time? The poem format and both of the other poems were all different, so I didn't know. I just tried to make mine like the format said.
2011-06-26 [kians mummy]: thats fine x)
2011-06-29 [Duke Devlin]: Also, have you go something against free-form? :( Not all poems benefit from being displayed in the standard form. :/
2011-06-29 [kians mummy]: Not yet, but will have soon
2011-06-29 [Duke Devlin]: Ah okay? Hahaha
2011-06-29 [Mortified Penguin]: You will have something against free-form soon? :o
2011-06-30 [kians mummy]: lol
2011-07-15 [kians mummy]: Needing more entrys
2011-07-28 [another brick in the wall]: I know the deadline's past, but just curious if the contest is still open?
2011-07-28 [kians mummy]: Yes, i'm changing the date for longer
2011-08-01 [kians mummy]: Thanks for the help mort
2011-08-01 [kians mummy]: How come you deleted your poem, it was good
2011-08-03 [JellyBellyBaby]: who are you talking to sammie h?
2011-08-03 [kians mummy]: you :P
2011-08-03 [JellyBellyBaby]: oh right. because No one acknowledged me. that was my first post and as no one said, ok thanks, or your poems rubbish/good/w
2011-08-03 [kians mummy]: No you hadn't, we appreciate all the poetry on this wiki, I am very busy in myself, that's why I changed the date to 20 submissions, I never meant wrong and I apologize to you.
2011-08-04 [Mortified Penguin]: 20 submissions?! Even for 2004, that would have been pushing it. But nowadays? This contest will never be over. Even limiting it to 10 submissions might be a little much.
2011-08-04 [kians mummy]: oh well, thats the hole point, so it will be lengthy.
2011-08-04 [Mortified Penguin]: The point of a competition is to have people compete for a chance to win. A competition without an end isn't a competition, but more of an exhibit. Having an ending is an essential part of any competition.
2011-08-04 [kians mummy]: Which it does after 20 entry's. :)
2011-08-04 [Mortified Penguin]: But 20 entries is impossible, so it doesn't. Like an asymptote, it'll only get closer and closer, but it'll never reach that 20 mark and be over.
2011-08-04 [kians mummy]: So what do you suggest mort :)
2011-08-04 [Mortified Penguin]: Reducing the number of entries to maybe 10? Maybe even 7.
2011-08-05 [kians mummy]: Thanks for the help mort, I have done what you said
2011-08-05 [kians mummy]: I like that, short and death lol :)
2011-08-14 [Nioniel]: Kinda crappy, but there you have it anyway. :)
2011-08-14 [Stephen]: Yours is better than mine. xP
2011-08-14 [Nioniel]: :O But I really like yours!
2011-08-14 [Stephen]: Lies! :-(
2011-08-14 [Nioniel]: Nuu.
2011-08-14 [Paul Doyle]: Old poem, written in 2003 while writing the final draft of Novel One. I'm not much of a poet, and this could be improved upon, but sometimes it's an awesome diversion from the usual novel-related tasks. Of all my poems that I wish to show in public, this is among my favorites though again it could be improved upon. Source . . . (besides my brain, of course) . . . http://pjdoyle
2011-08-14 [Paul Doyle]: And yep, I've ended my longstanding boycott on ET contests (whether official or unofficial), if anybody cares to know. It's up to each and every one of us to ensure the evolution of Elftown into a bigger, better site. Bygones need to be acknowledged; amends and reconciliation ought to be happening. Anyway, I'm done with my speech now.
2011-08-15 [Paul Doyle]: Thanks :3
2011-09-11 [Paul Doyle]: Again . . . given the circumstances of the badge-maker's banning, the very picky "PUBLIC NOTICE!" on her house's presentation, and the questionable copyright status of the source material used for her photomanips, it might be logical to get someone else to provide the badge artwork and other related art. For all of the above reasons I refuse to post her badge art on my house's presenation though I have mentioned I won the first installment of this competition.
2011-09-12 [Stephen]: Can I resubmit my previous entry? :P
2011-11-07 [kians mummy]: No sorry, your work has to be new
2011-11-07 [kians mummy]: Don't forget to become a fan XX
2012-01-19 [Nocturnaliss]: I'm a big fan of all things death-related, so... hope the entry's good for it :)
2012-01-20 [kians mummy]: Yes it is, but we need more entries, one miniute. :)
2012-02-24 [Gastogh]: Checking in with an entry, yo.
Not a bad idea, that, having the deadline be a specific number of entries. I could think of a few other contests in ET that could have benefited from that idea. Still, any guesses as to how long it's going to take for the roster to fill up? From the comments it looks like the competition has been running for half a year already. :P
2012-02-25 [Mortified Penguin]: Remind me to post here tomorrow.
2012-02-26 [kians mummy]: Mort, reminding you to post here today lol. :)
2012-02-26 [Mortified Penguin]: Oh yeah... remind me again tomorrow.
2012-02-26 [Rat Hacker]: I'm entry 6. I wrote this a while ago when I was really depressed. I hope that it is okay. I am not aiming it toward anything or anyone... I hope it fits the theme and the content rules.
2012-02-27 [kians mummy]: I'll discuss it with my staff and get back to you to see what they feel
2012-02-27 [Mortified Penguin]: Lets us know what your staff has to say as soon as possible.
2012-03-01 [Paul Doyle]: Please do not use my poetry on your Elftown presentation page, Sammie. My entry (from the previous poetry contest) was posted before you made this rule, so please respect my work and my copyright. I gave permission only to use it for the purposes of the previous poetry contest. I fully expect you to comply with my simple request. Thank you.
2012-03-02 [kians mummy]: Ok
2012-03-03 [Rat Hacker]: Okay so is my entry (entry 6) okay to be here? I was hoping it wasn't too dark of violent... Please let me know if it is okay.
2012-03-04 [kians mummy]: I'm saying yes. :)
2012-03-07 [kians mummy]: Come on everyone, to more entries to go!! :)
