A place to sit back, hang out, and talk about anything you'd like.

of them back to back and in the Discord at least it seems to be the consensus that we are all pretty burned out on contests now and they are sapping our will to live, distracting us from personal projects etc.
I'm going to be swearing off them awhile myself. I've got a ton of half-finished WIPs I want to try to focus on actually completing over the next year and this means no more starting new projects. I also have been feeling a little bad for awhile for the fact I've been neglecting writing reviews and responding to messages, but those are both things that I just don't do on mobile and so when I'm on the computer they have to take a backseat to my writing time.
What's everyone else's feelings on this*, is it time for a break?
I don't think anyone wants them to stop completely, but more breathing room may be appreciated and make a contest more of an Event rather than a thing that is always going on. One idea was to limit it to four official contests a year; one each from each active admin, with @Bucky taking mine. (because lol at being forced to read a bunch of entries). End may still pop up and do spontaneous things of course because he is not bound by mortal laws but the focus will be on the big four. Possibly even with real prizes beyond e-cred and points.
Idk, thoughts? Endmaster has what will likely be a popular theme planned for I think, December, but after that for 2019 no harm in testing out doing things differently for a year.
note that as always, your feelings may be completely disregarded depending on admin whim
