Bro your story is good... and Bloodylips story is great compare to Jayrox!

 

 

OMG Jayrox I  didn't know you are going to be rude like this.. and FYI! we are not only people here agreed that the results is really unfair.

 

why rude? you cry here,that you fail writing a story with limited words...but thats the competition about. so just dont take part when you cant do that :facepalm: 

 

and me for example...its not fun to read bloodys story,cause have too many unnecessary details...even if he made a great job. and maybe devs thought the same. such judgements are never objective.

oh, well....  even tough i dont win, but at least some enjoying reading mine. tee hee ;D

 

anyway, congrats to all winner, and to all who participated on contest but dont win : its a success that delayed, so keep positive and leave the bad feeling of disappointment behind :yahoo:

Well Congrats to all and specially for maleshaman!

 

But let me tell you, dear devs, that i could write a better story if i dnt respect the limit of 4k characters, and adding that some winner pieces already passed that limit.

 

Ty anyway.

Congrats to winners! I'm a bit disapointed i didn't even get an encouragement prize but hey, the judges obviously have their reasons for giving the prizes to the winners that have them, we just have to try and figure out what they are ;) I just hope that people are gracious in victory (Unlike jayrox :facepalm: )

Dear players.

I had to delete some drama here and I will explain everything.

Rules are rules. Story contest "Day in the life of a monster" originally was designed as short 1-day story and 1k-4k characters is not a "must", but "should" criteria. Few hundreds characters more are not that bad and not such big violation.

It is normal to discuss current thread, but insulting other players and administration will be prosecuted. We are trying to keep friendly environment on our forum as it should be.

 

It is hard to post all measures for that kind of contests, because it is a creative one. You cannot measure the talent, but we tried to make some contest and try to judge stories. Overreacting is quite expected, for sure. Unfortunately, we couldn't make 100 hundred first places, even if we would like to. Every single thread deserves attention, of course.

 

We will try to make some easy judging contest accessible for everyone.

 

Dialogue is the key to understanding.

 

Thank you again.

Thank you for that too.

 

As i already said to cereal killer we also enjoy just participating. Actually a lot.

 

Thank you, but next time add  (please) in the rules that rules may be changed if judges are not happy enough with the "artwork" who fit in rules. It was shocking for me and you guys will not understand. I could made a better story, thats all.

I agree that the competition was hard to judge and that the stories chosen were very good. But the rules say the max character limit is 4000 and winning posts are over this limit. I know nothing can be done now the rewards have been given out but next time, if you see that the stories are going the wrong way, tell us so we can sort our entries out and we can all avoid this ending. Then we can all be friends :friends: :drinks:

Why can't devs just apologize for the miss handling with the criterias? Yes it's done and that's fine, but their was no 'should' in the original contest post and now you guys are trying to bend things to fit your actions. I know that it's bloody hard judging creative work, but in story writing a max limit of characters is a very important and hard criteria to consider when you plan your story. Not even you devs seem to exactly know why this happened, more then apparently everyone missed the critera mark and thats why you guys had to improvise the rules to even get any winners. It's quite obvious why people are upset. Instead of trying to slither just apologize.

 

And congratulations to the winners.

my story took 12 hrs, and when they updated rules to 4000 charactets with space i did aloooot of editing and it made my story from wow to .... If i knew some winners were over 40000 my 6700 charcter could've  possibly won. But geez not even a encouring prize. I read your story btw was wonderful. I think these contests are a waste of my time but ugh whatever

 

Good stories to people who won

Many? If i could quote i would but earlier on devs were saying only 3.5 of the stories were actually within limit. Just a bit of fuel to the fire there, but i think you should read everything that has been posted by devs/users before you start making statements. So yeah, well done to the 3 and a half people that succesfully wrote an interesting short story.

Actually you are the one insulting them.

Who are you to say that someone should stop participating in contest here in forum? who are you?

Your not God so stop it.

 

And another thing you just won 3rd prize not 1st prize so please don't be so proud. As I said earlier Bloody's story is far way better than yours if this contest were judge fairly.

 

 

And thanks for the mod/devs that will promise a good judging next time..

 

But we are also waiting for the public apology...

 

And congratulations to the winners.

No need to bring Born in this, he had a better set of reasons then you currently have.

 

You lost a competition so what? I`m sure you have some good in-game friends. That just might be an reason to stay.

Sorry but I really think you are overreacting to a loss.
