Default Member's Choice - August - October


Member's Choice is a chance to help your fellow WB members get featured in the upcoming publication.

Nominate your entries either by posting here in this thread or contacting me, Devon, through a Private Message with 'Members' Choice Nomination' in the subject line. All nominated entires will be posted in a separate thread as they come in.

The five with the most nominations will be put up for voting on October 16th. Voting will end on October 21st.

Nominate as many pieces as you like. But remember, only works posted here on WB between August 1st and October 15th, 2008 will be eligible for nominations.

Thank you!

Tut tut!

No bumping... it says in the FAQ!

[Yes, I know, it's a staff member... just felt like pointing it out]

You could make it a sticky! Or, you could post saying "Maybe I should make this a sticky," and that would be a non-bump bump! Not that I would do something like that...

P.S. Feel free to delete this post if it's clutter!

It is stickied in the applicable forums. I think Devon was trying to get this noticed since no one has nominated anything. But maybe there are no nominations because there isn't anything worth nominating? Somehow I don't think that is the case.

Definitely not the case!

I think that, as long as there's a deadline, people want to play chicken with it. Yeah, deadline, you aren't as bad as you think you are. I can take you. I can submit three seconds before you expire!

I know there's lot's of worthy stuff here... let me go poke my nose around!

Yeesh. And I thought someone had nominated something here! Come on, don't get my hopes up.

And yes, Q's right. I bumped this thread to get it noticed so people will think to nominate pieces.

I nominate "Mouse Trap" by Flapjak. I enjoyed it very much! However, the author said he/she (?) wasn't done with it quite yet. What's the rule on that? Do nominations have to be done entirely before being nominated, or is it acceptable for the author to 'tweek' it before it goes into In Pencil?

As soon as something is nominated, that is the piece that is entered in the contest. Do you want to check with Flapjak to see if they will be be reposting an edited version before the cut-off date?

Haha... It's wrong to do this, I know, but then again, count it as a suggestion: Devon, 'bumping the thread' makes whoever might submit something (nominate) be a little apprehensive... As the only one, etc. After all, isn't that why others bump their threads too? Perhaps an encourgement post of some sort would haveworked to greater extent.

Anyway, I agree with HoiLei about the deadline... And this is a new feature, so you can't expect Rome in a day.
Anyway,

Okay, I nominate "Mousetrap" by Flapjak--the version that is up right now. Hope I followed the rules on this one . . . I really liked the story. Thanks!

Can I nominate "There Lies..." by Winterbite? I really like the creativity that was displayed in the piece.
