Contest SHAME 18: SHAMELORDS!

2 months ago

And so ends another contest and a crippled slug crawling across the Nevada salt flats would have gotten farther than some of you lot did.

Most of you failed spectacularly and got yourselves thrown into the pit of SHAME just as expected despite having multiple chances of submitting something.

Some of you even managed to get double SHAMED, and of course it wouldn’t be an Edgelord contest without a couple of bannings. 

Still, there were a few that managed to rise to the challenge or even surpass expectations. You lot will get rewards later and your moms will be grateful.

Anyway, let’s get on with it.

This is the low point of my career on the site, but it was necessary for a narratively satisfying turnaround. I'm going to wallow in regret for awhile, then give myself an inspirational speech and the writing montage music will start to play.

F Starboy though, what he did have of his story was pretty decent. I'd encourage him to play Eye of the Tiger and stick with it on Google docs or something.

I guess if you look at it as the universe balancing itself out.

Like some people must get shamed to balance the universal scales, or something.

So the "banned and shamed" people are literally banned permanently? With no chance at redemption? Because of failing to write something for the contest (thrice)?

Starbourne is actually the first semi-legitimate site member this has ever happened to so it's a little unprecedented. It's usually impossible to fail so hard, and anyone who suspects they're capable of such a thing is theoretically capable of just not entering in the first place, or of just prewriting the story or something. (What I intended to do before I foolishly did the opposite.)

The funny thing is besides Ace, all of those banned people got banned during a contest rather than failing one 3 times.

All this time and I never realized double commending was a thing. I'd there a limit there? Is it possible to just manually hand out a certain number of comms this way? Might need to do some experimenting now.

Well until NOW I didn't want to reveal her secret, but MHD is qualified for none of these jobs; she just owns a lot of hats.

I would have to question that. After all, I'm pretty sure that no admin here has ever modified a post or deleted a post unless it was spam or something like that

That's true, I was just envisioning a completely theoretical scenario. And I mean, who knows if the edit button even REALLY edits? No one has ever tried.

Contest SHAME 18: SHAMELORDS!

I mean if we're being honest, nothing would actually happen to Mizal if she failed a third time because this isn't a democracy and the Gods are above the laws of petty mortals.

However, we'd all KNOW and worst of all she'd KNOW how spectacularly she had failed. And living with the deep SHAME of being a god, and still not being able to match the lowliest of mortals would be more than enough punishment.

Any idea when the people that were slightly better than the crippled slug shall get to find out whether they're a slightly advanced slug or a turtle?

In other words, when's the actual end of the contest (and the winner announcement)?

Funny thing, if I'd known about that last extension I might have tried to rush out the main path on Sunday after all. I'd planned to do exactly that on Saturday, but then I ended up helping my uncle dig up a septic tank and after that just decided the story was a lost cause. I made $70 and got to eat pork ribs so I'm not complaining, but it's been increasingly difficult to make writing any kind of priority, I'm working a lot right now to save for a car. Even if I ultimately failed, I'm proud of myself for writing over 8000 words and coming up with an interesting plot in a category I'm not a fan of. I feel like I've leveled up as a writer since I've finally figured out methods for telling stories in a big universe from the 'you' point of view of just one character, which was something that was a brick wall to me before. I really wish I'd discovered this site a couple of years ago when I had more time and not so many adult responsibilities, but I know plenty of people here manage both so it's just something I need to work at until I find my stride. Anyway congrats to hetero_malk and everyone else who finished, and you can ban this account now, I'll be back sometime in the future with a story thats 40,000 words long.

Good luck, hope you do pull off a complete story soonish. Like I said, what I read of your entry was miles better than your original story here so you've definitely improved by a lot.

Too bad you didn't notice the extension, but I hope this all teaches a valuable lesson on randomly entering contests while already double SHAMED, for genres you don't even like. Still can't believe you did that. Just so weird, smh.

I hope those were some damn good ribs.

Honestly, I don't have any particular desire to ban you, and seeing how no one else has, I don't think that desire really exists. You just gotta not piss anyone off until you can get that next game published lol
