Hi all, this is a heads up for our Summer CYOA Writing Contest - which will officially start July 1st and run two months, ending the last day of August.

Yep a two month contest (hosted by yours truly)!

Look for the Official Post Friday, June 30th, which will reveal the Theme, Entry Rules, and Prizes to be won!

Awesome, I was wondering what had become of this. Looking forward to it, Berka.

Nice, thanks for hosting Berka! I might actually complete a contest-CYOA this time.

Another contest for me to lose points in :3

Shit, I need to finish Awful Rich Space Lesbians before this contest starts. 

New Contest Starting Soon

27 days ago
Wait, are those awful lesbians or awful RICH lesbians?

Well, they're in space, so either way it should be good, right?

New Contest Starting Soon

27 days ago
Same, but for Lizards Look at Space Wars.

 Nice, I know you'll do great holding the contest BZ! ^-^

Hopefully Ford won't commit suicide again...

Thanks for hosting this BZ. :)

Berka's contests are more dignified by the book affairs.

So no crazy stuff like betting insane amounts of points or your accounts this time.

Not like that really helped anyone anyway.

New Contest Starting Soon

28 days ago

Yay, now I won't feel like a little bitch when others are betting thousands and I bet 100 or less.

Probably

New Contest Starting Soon

28 days ago

Ha ha, there's no way in bloody Hell that I'd ever bet a high amount of points again. Hurray for dignity!

New Contest Starting Soon

27 days ago

Cool, I might try my hand at this depending on how busy my summer is. Thanks for hosting BerkaZerka! What kind of themes have there been in the past other than chaos?

New Contest Starting Soon

27 days ago

Hm, that's a tough question. Have you perhaps tried looking at some of the threads in News & Updates?

New Contest Starting Soon

27 days ago

No, I haven't. Seeing as they don't seem to be held often, I assumed I'd have to go back through years. Then again, people probably don't post very often in that section; I don't think I've really ever looked through it.

New Contest Starting Soon

Most of them should still be on the first page. Whoever would choose to answer your question would have to check anyway, unless they have a really good memory.
Just put in some effort yourself. You just need to press h a few times and listen ... oh right, you're not blind anymore. :P

New Contest Starting Soon

27 days ago

Yeah, I checked and MinnieKing already rekt me. 

New Contest Starting Soon

Bucky was hosting them regularly until a couple months ago. But this is the Berka show now so there's no telling what the theme will be.

New Contest Starting Soon

27 days ago

Yesssssss! I look forward to it!!

New Contest Starting Soon

27 days ago

:O This will get me writing again. I've written close to nothing since the Chaos Contest ended. Look forward to it, Berka! ^-^

New Contest Starting Soon

25 days ago

Cool. Any hints as to the theme?

New Contest Starting Soon

24 days ago
No hints (It would give certain members a slight advantage). Though you already know I'll be throwing my Trophy into the pot for the winner.

New Contest Starting Soon

24 days ago

Ah, if you say. I guess it's writing about Irish history til then. I will have everyone here now, the trophy is mine, I'm on Summer Holidays and I'm finished school so I have a lot of spare writing time, I will decimate those who oppose.

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

Will the winner get your trophy AND the contest trophy?

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago
That is Correct! (Presuming 3J eventually logs in to award the Contest Trophy part).

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

There's no need for that, I already have a contest trophy, it's not like I'll be able to get another.

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

However, getting 3J to update yours (to include this contest if you did win it) would mean that 3J would have to log on which would cause you to have the 3/4 majority (assuming you receive BZ's trophy). Therefore, I do think you'd very much need that, Steve. :)

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

I'm not bothered.

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

I disagree. I, for one, would like an updated contest trophy when I win. Especially since I already have Berka's...

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago
You all understand I'm getting the trophies right?

I'm not sure why you're even having this conversation.

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

You do realise that entails writing an actual story, right?

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago
Rather, writing and keeping a story up. We're rounding the end of the first half of the year. Number of stories she's written and kept up... *crickets chirping in background* That said, the stories she wrote (but pulled down) were fairly interesting.

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago
The requirements for a 6/8 length story rated 5 or higher are laughable, I mean I've written things I wouldn't wipe my ass with that would still qualify. Maybe you guys will get to see some of them if I get really desperate and close to the deadline but it shouldn't be necessary, I've got this. :)

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

Ah shit, my mistake. BZ never clarified that we were supposed to submit half-finished entries with promises of fixing it. 

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

We'd all like a lot of things, but alas, we don't get them. You've only bested me due to End spitefully deciding not to pick me out of what I can only assume is a mixture of lust, childish adoration and jealousy combined in some dangerous brew, and that was in a short story written very quickly, and I'm willing to use all my time to create gold here. I remind you, speed and length are my strength. Ask your mother.

Edit: Should BZ go ahead and pick some incredibly shitty title, like "Poetry", this point is rescinded, and replaced with "Sure, have my scraps. I wouldn't wipe my ass with this contest if it had your mothers tongue attached." I need the mother insult either way, I'm taking this shit not only to the streets, but the motherfucking playground.

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

I do appreciate that you admit there's a decent possibility of me winning in certain categories, even though you also write that you're too afraid to submit a story in that case anyway. I guess it's therefore fair to admit that you have a pretty decent chance of winning if the category is something like 'protagonist with some sort of psychological issue', or 'most creative/excessive use of swear words'. Anyhow, I guess we'll just have to wait and see. 

By the way, since when are you allowed within 30 meters of a playground again? 

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

Not sure what Steve’s bitching about anyway considering I don’t like you any more than I like him. The pair of you are both eurotrash as far as I’m concerned.

This is all based on writing ability anyway, it’s not the fucking prom where I’m picking one of you to be queen based on whether you put out or not. So if Steve wants to win this contest, he's going to have to do it without kneeling for a change.

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

Yeah, you obviously don't like Romulus more than me, as I'm far superior. Hence, it's your lust, childish adoration and jealousy of me that painted your decision. Plus, you did state specifically that you knew you were going to go against expectations that I'd win in your post, clearly showing your extreme bias in a plea to get my attention.

Don't worry, it doesn't matter now that BZ's judging, as his entire attitude toward me is at the very best a faint disdain of my general character, so I don't fear the same happening again.

New Contest Starting Soon

I'm not saying someone has daddy issues, but...

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

Unsurprisingly, I'm not one of the many people who refer to End as Daddy. I'd look to Minnie and Thara if I was you.

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

Correct, there is. For instance, poetry. Because poetry is for faggots, and I am no one and thus would be confused by the whole ordeal. However, if any topic worth being written about comes up, you're well and truly fucked.

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago
Don't be so down on yourself Steve. Sure, you're not anyone important, but calling yourself 'no one' is so emo.

How are those six storygames going, dollface? Back in the kitchen.

Three Days till the Official Start! ^v^

New Contest Starting Soon

Why not make those the official three days for outlining and give us the theme now?

New Contest Starting Soon

Et Tu Mizal? ;)

New Contest Starting Soon

Hang on, did I ask you to do that? I don't think I did. Ah, my memory's shot.

I don't know, when was the last Irish Drinking Holiday?

New Contest Starting Soon

Leaving Cert and hence six years of school ended Friday. That gaffer will never end.

New Contest Starting Soon

Will there be a limit to how many submissions we can put in? 

New Contest Starting Soon

23 days ago

I think this information will be included with the actual contest thread.

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago
There is a limit to the entry fee, but no restriction on the number of submissions.

I suspect however, that more might actually be less in this case - where time could be spent really polishing a single entry, rather than churning out a bunch of WC chapter ones.

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago
teehee I will participate (and submit something this time i swear) again :)

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago
End should just preemptively take away your points and SHAME you.

New Contest Starting Soon

That response doesn't work there, you jack off.

So toxic. *shudders*

Fuck off, shit head. Some dumb fucks need to be poisoned with some toxicity to get rid of them. It's the basis of chemo.

New Contest Starting Soon

The Contest starts in July.

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

Damn, I'm already on the 30th. *cue scenes of lamentation*

jinx

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

Now I'm really curious. Maybe I'll join too this time. Of course that depends on the theme...

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

Also, you have any idea as to when you'll be posting it tomorrow? Perhaps in the morning when you've been posting the countdown? Or maybe at night so you can have everyone wait as long as possible? 

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago
Probably around 1400 Zulu Time. ^v^

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

It's the 30th in Zulu Time dammit, give me details! I want to know if I'm going to have to stop my gloating because you've picked something awful like ballads!

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago
it'll be the first "super restricted" contest: educational ballad that rhymes and can be no more than 100 words. Allowed 2 entries but both entries have to rhyme with each other if you do two.

New Contest Starting Soon

22 days ago

Put me down for 500 points!

New Contest Starting Soon

21 days ago

Dang, can't wait to see what this is all about. It's been the 30th for 21 hours here in GMT + 7. Not sure if I'm gonna write on this one or not, hehehe...

New Contest Starting Soon

21 days ago

Oh boy it's June 30th!

Now, what is the theme, entry rules and prizes.....

New Contest Starting Soon

21 days ago

Prizes include BZ's personal user trophy and a contest winning trophy (which has been said in these posts).  Points are also commonly given.

Also, the theme will be WC fanfiction which has all the site members in romantic pairings, as furries, and in poetic verse  (to annoy Steve)... trust me.

New Contest Starting Soon

I'm impressed myanana knows how to hyperlink but we still have members who can't fathom any other way of linking things than copy-pasting a plaintext url.

New Contest Starting Soon

17 days ago
I do the latter when I'm on my phone and don't feel like inserting < br> into my post a bunch of times with auto-correct fighting me every step of the way just to save someone the dreadful inconvenience of copy and pasting once.

E: wow you are so patriotic today
