So is everyone still interested in doing this one, because if everyone has contest fatigue (Didn't bother reading that whole thread) then I won't bother setting it up soon.
I know everyone was all gung ho about it earlier this year, but then Bucky suddenly thought it would be a great idea to have the EPIC contest and everything got put on hold.
I would enter, whether I would succeed or not is a different story.
Alright, I guess we'll finish off the year with this contest then.
So anyone have preference for time frame? I can get it underway immediately if people want. The deadline at the latest would be the new year of course. Can make it shorter if that's too much time. (I know everyone here has ADD)
Starting immediately, 2-3 week deadline! Hold our feet to the fire.
Sounds fine to me and that's what we'll probably go with unless someone else has a really compelling reason not to.
(And no, it being Ford's suggestion still isn't a good enough reason)
I thought you hated fan fiction.
I hate children, gay shit and romance too, but I still held contests for those.
Besides, it's been mentioned on several occasions that the Fanfic section sucks a lot and could use an injection of new stuff now that we generally got competent writers for the task. Plus everyone was all excited about doing it, of course we'll see just how excited when the contest gets going.
I'm actually holding back on writing right now. My coauthor Chips whom i relied for info for the clone game disappeared misteriously, possibly murdered on some shady place.
I'm also still learning of the editor stuff and coding. So i thought "Fuck that. Just links and pages will do." based on my experience with end's games (pretty sure there might be others but like araki, i forgot). But i'm not sure, i had ideas for variables (like army numbers/health). The fact i'm instantly bored trying to learn any kind of code also probably plays a part in my noobness. Also laziness.
Overall i want to do things on my own pace/no pressure, but i doubt i'll even finish writing something decent after playing other entries here. So entering a contest now would be like entering a 1000m marathon with my legs broken and a truck coming in my direction.
Which is to say, i shouldn't promise things i don't know if i can deliver. Sorry if i'm disappointing, but i'm doing things on my own speed until i feel confident to tackle the competition stuff. It might take some decades.
Look on the bright side. Said truck could push you further that you'd have crawled.
I might enter, just to see if I'd be instantly rekt by my level in English or enough proofread would make it OK.
I'm just wondering how fanfic can be evaluated. Usually a fanfic is tailored for a public that gets all or most of the references and know enough about the lore.
(aside) : And sometimes it's a pitiful excuse to throw random references ad nauseam and forget all sense of structure.
what, someone made a fortnite one? Marvelous.
I guess this would give me motivation to make a story that'll actually stay up this time.
There's a certain triggering anime to some about vicious rape-thirsty goblins and one emotionally-dead man driven to eradicate them whenever he can that I've been interested in making a cyoa about.
Sounds like a plan.
I think I'll have to put in the description that it won't be told in the perspective of the main character if I start working on it soon. There's no way I can desecrate such a character's image with using him in the many dead-ends I already am brainstorming as we speak.
Good luck on your goblin slayer cyoa. Looking forward to it
Now you've done it! It was bad enough that End replied to me but now you've just made things that much harder for me to backtrack on this.
Well I guess it shouldn't be too hard to write about the goblins being killed in various methods.
Well this got sufficient attention. I'll post an official thread for this contest soon since I'm not going to want to bother doing it later.
Is there a minimum word limit or other such conditions for entries to this contest.
