2009-02-14 [Linderel]: Heh, thanks.

2009-02-16 [FutureGrave]: Yea, I finally got sleep and I hope you did too. Also congratz to the winners. ^-^

2012-01-30 [kians mummy]: Up to (number) poems will be picked out by Literature Judges from all those presented. Winners and participants will receive the following badges:

The thing marked in bold needs to be changed.

2012-01-30 [Akayume]: I think at this point it's subjective. If we only get five poems then obviously only one will be chosen, but if we get forty we'll probably end up picking two winners, let's say. (:

2012-01-30 [kians mummy]: Ok then hun, no worries. just trying to get everything up to date everywhere I go. :)

2012-01-30 [SilverFire]: ''up to" leaves that option open anyway. I doubt we'd fet enough entries to have more than two winners, so it's probably safe to write 'two' there.

2012-01-30 [kians mummy]: Yeah

2013-02-09 [MyAlterEgo]: Is that deadline correct? August 8th?

2013-02-09 [Flisky]: Backwards again. March 8th.

2013-11-14 [The Dizzy Raven]: lol.... almost a year late to announce the winner xDDDD

2013-11-14 [Flisky]: That's just how we roll.

2013-11-15 [The Dizzy Raven]: lol <3

2013-11-15 [Paul Doyle]: With that in mind, can we open Halloween 2014 contests almost a year ahead of time? (Just to provide a sense of balance. Or something. :3)

2013-11-15 [Teufelsweib]: to provide balance we should open Halloween 2014 contests in 2015, stay with the flow.

2013-11-15 [Paul Doyle]: Silly me. So maybe we ought to start the 2013 Halloween costume contest right about now---just to be better attuned to The Flow?

2013-11-15 [The Dizzy Raven]: lol

2013-11-16 [Lakayana]: But why the delay?

2013-11-19 [Paul Doyle]: The delay might have been caused by lots of sleep-inducing poppy fields that have been overgrowing Elftown these past few years?

2013-11-30 [Lakayana]: ouch!

2015-03-02 [Mortified Penguin]: :u

2015-03-03 [The Dizzy Raven]: xD
