Competition Discussion and Questions thread.

Post by Archonix » Sat Oct 27, 2007 12:12 pm

This thread is for any questions or comments regarding the competition. It is not a general discussion thread - if it's not directly related to the competition, it will be moved.

I just have to say, the quality of work this competition will produce should be nothing short of fantastic... just looking at the other competitors so far is almost giving me a heart attack!  :o

Welcome to our little town
Why don't you settle down?
Here, just fill out the paperwork and you can look around
We work and then we work and then we work and then we work and then we work and then we work
And then we end up in the ground.

If I only knew at least a little bit about Futurama, I'd participate, but oh well, maybe next time.  *walks out of the room*

*Walks back in*  Good luck to all participants, and kudos on the rules and organization of the competition to Graham.  Everything seems so well planned.  *gets out and closes door*

Do stories have to take place in any specific stretch of canon time, or can they take place in the canonical setting of the author's preference?

But they will eventually appear in the author's threads.

Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

Tell me about it.  It took me almost a month to write mine two years ago.  I just though that there was at least one already done.  I read something about that on a topic of a story.   I'll wait.  But I can't wait.  ;D
