With the new pinning feature, there's no need to make any new Pit of SHAME threads. (Other than this one) This one can just be edited as needed!
Also not bothering with posting the fucktards that got themselves banned anymore since they already lost their chance at redemption. We do have the new "Triple SHAMED" category which does ban the slugs from most official contests. Redemption may still be possible, but highly unlikely.
Anyway here's the current list of losers who failed the basic task of submitting a contest story after they promised to work on one.
PIT OF SHAME
And remember if you're on this list, you're still fucking terrible.
Very shameful, very sad
Ah, the pit. It doesn't smell good down here. Everyone said not to wear slippers while standing near the edge, but I was so curious why there were all those caution signs and, well, I can't change the past. More importantly, I read you're offering a way out, and I'm interested.
One expects the noise would be horrendous here, but all the ghouls and starving noobs appear to be sleeping. How long have they been that way? I can't seem to wake them at all. In fact, I think I'm the only one awake in the entire pit. There's a really crude dumbwaiter here, covered in such a mire of dirt that I scarcely recognized it. I hope the offering I found in there was recent, but in all likelihood, it's as old as the corpses at the very bottom of the pit. At least the pages looked neat.
In any case, I'm afraid this pen will run dry. Please, if you get this letter, respond! I'll also need a new pen and some paper.
It's our generation's War and Peace.
I sure hope so.
His mom sure does though.
It's too bad that Sherbert guy got shamed, I wish him the best of luck with getting out of the pit.
Damn, I feel bad for him.
So uh, who is he?
And this recent contest had the worst turn out in a long time.
Out of the 17 participants:
7 got SHAMED
3 got DOUBLE SHAMED, including Ebon who once again came out swinging at everyone and trashing talking only to get winded and pass out like a faggot long before the contest was even over.
And TheChef managed to get himself BANNED from all future contests with a TRIPLE SHAME!
Imagine not turning in literally anything for a contest. What a tool you'd have to be.
Of all threads he could have said that in, he chose a pinned one.
The ultimate goals is to be in the top 5 story games on the site. That, of course, means eventually competing with End and his story games. That likely won't happen for a couple of years, but on the way there are people like you, Mizal, and a few other lauded members.
This contest is a good way to start down that road.
We should be getting to those writing duels as well, given that it's January, but how can we if Ebon hasn't showed his face?
Well thanks to Mizal's baffling sense of mercy, Ace has FINALLY crawled his way out of the lowest level of SHAME where he was rightfully being chained.
Congrats, you've unleashed an abomination topside.
However, a price must ALWAYS be paid for such deeds so Mazdark has taken his place, thus restoring some semblance of balance to the cosmos. (But not really)
Oh cool, back in the pit he goes then.
quick question just in case I ever end up on this list. If you are triple-shamed and as a miracle end up allowed to enter a contest and finish a game, does that bring you out of the pit or to second level?
Ace was supposed to win the contest to even get out of his lowly state.
So he's still in there until someone else bafflingly allows the mercy of letting him participate in another contest for another chance to escape. (And that won't ever be me)
so you have to win the contest. Got it.
It's really easy to avoid triple shame though.
Yup, just panic-write enough words on the last 2-3 days of the contest if all else fails, and as long as there's some branching, plot and proofreading, then you're usually out of the pit and free to fail contests two more times before having to worry again.
