Fan fiction contest rules and criteria.

 3) Good sportsmanship is key, if someone scores higher than you don't take it personally, attacking other contestants or the judges results in disqualification. The same goes for the judges should they choose to be overly critical or hurtful in their assessments. You can make your points without being pricks, that goes for both sides.

 4) Once the entry period is up judges have two weeks to judge entries (This deadline is expanded should the number of entries be significantly more than is reasonable to judge in that period) if left without a score the entry with be given an average as the third score, if only one judge manages to judge a particular work then their score becomes the sole basis for the final score.

 5) Have fun and be creative

 Genre goal: How well your story fits the Genre, comedies should be funny, action stories thrilling, horror suspenseful and so on. Genre is scored out of forty points.

 Community: How accurately you portray Fanon characters and Original Characters (OC's which are not yours are the only ones to qualify in this regard) Community is scored out of seventy five points

 Creativity: To quote the BNL "Its all been done before" Creativity is how you represent and spin obvious situations. In example, a battle between Kojiro and Saber or Archer and Gilgamesh, or a love confession etcetera. Creativity is scored out of fifty points.

 Uniqueness: Uniqueness is the measure of how your work is set apart from others. As with creativity it is scored out fifty.

 Final points

 1) Betaing is 100% Ok, if not for the deadline I expect most if not all users would check their work. Assistance is allowed in this regard.

 2) Application for judge positions is done by posting a comment requesting to be a judge in this thread. I'll pick two people, no more. Should someone abdicate the position someone else will be chosen at that point.

 3)After the contest ends a public poll will be held so users can vote on what they thought the best fanfic of the contest was.

 4) In case my inbox fills up while I'm sleeping or you find yourself unable to PM me for whatever reason. Go register at Darkside of the Moon and PM Cherry lover, he'll get them to me in case of an emergency like last minute deadlines and so on. PM's only, no google docs (my platform has problems with them) you must pm your entry to me or failing that Mike on DSM to qualify.

OK, Lantz, can you explain in detail how stories without OCs are handled? Because I would imagine that at least some fics would lack any such characters (mine likely would, for example).

Also, do we have to request exactly what we want as a prize now? If we do, then I need to think up two ideas, one for the fic and one for the prize....

Oh, and what will you do if you don't get three judges by the deadline?

Oh, and at what point should we do the entry form? After we've written the actual fic?

Stories without OC's have a score adjustment done during the final tally to determine the winner. Use of OCs or a lack thereof will not affect your ability to win.

submit the entry when you enter, which means when you've finished the work.

the prize request is part of the entry form.

if I don't have judges then I'll judge it myself if it comes to that.

In what manner is the score adjusted?

Ah, OK.

Wait, so I need to think of two ideas in the next two weeks?

The score is adjusted so that entries are not penalized one way or the other for the use of characters.

yes you need two ideas in two weeks in regards to prizes.

no Arch, the contest is not dead. Altima just decided to be his usual overzealous self. Two weeks means two weeks

Well, sure, how does the adjustment work, though?

Yeah, Altima seems to like locking threads at the first sign of any issues....

No. Someday, Magos will rise again. This is the gravestone of this thread.

I still intend to enter, but you don't send in an entry form until after you've written the fic....

Kat, Puck. Since neither of you are here to be serious or enter the contest, leave this thread.

For fucks sake Lantz, you're not a mod, you can't order people to leave a thread. Just because you made the thread doesn't mean you're allowed to act like you're in charge. If you want them to leave, ask a fucking mod or admin to make them stop.
