Title: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: Red Right Hand on April 30, 2015, 09:50:05 PM
Sign up here if you are interested in picking the three elements that make up a contest theme. I will then be able to select candidates from this thread instead of relying on "cold calling" to try and get a volunteer.

Do NOT post your theme elements here. They should never be unveiled before the start of a writing cycle to make things fair.

Please do post your willingness to volunteer in future and I will certainly use names from this thread.

Thank You.

I'd love to pick a theme again if no one else wants to. It was a lot of fun to mull over different topics, trying to find three words that can work together, but not pigeon hole everyone into the same story. I'd be happy to help. :)

I'd be willing to have a go. Are there guidelines for how to do it?

Thank you both, Red  :* and kitty  :*


I'd be willing to have a go. Are there guidelines for how to do it?

Let your imagination be your guide, is all, and just try and find some harmony among the elements that makes sense to you.

I'm trying to give space for someone else to jump in since I chose the first one. If nobody else volunteers by 7:09pm your time (RRH) on Saturday, June 20th, I would love to come up with the next one.

Post by: FrodoKreuger on June 18, 2015, 12:39:23 AM
Well, you already have my volunteer... so I'm also happy to send in 3 words any time you request. I may not log on every day (though mostly I do at least come on even if I do nothing) but as soon as you say "Your words or your life" I can give you three weird ones to struggle with. :)

Post by: flash713 on June 18, 2015, 03:19:52 PM
Any time you want me to pick just send a message asking for 3 words, il reply asap then. Just a side note they can be anything no matter how random?

Ok. So first of all, when RRH posted "First invite going out...", I thought he was opening it up again to the first person to volunteer below. And then two and a half hours later, when he posted, "More volunteers are welcome, of course...", I thought that was his dry sense of humor, saying 'Don't everyone volunteer at once.' (Lol) Well, I didn't want to jump in and assert myself when I just chose the words the time before, especially if people were working and couldn't see the original post. But I didn't want him to think nobody was interested! Thus, I offered if and only if nobody else came forward. I started to write 7:00pm, but then I thought, what if someone came across this post at 6:58pm on Saturday and then decided not to because they thought they couldn't meet the deadline?? That would be a shame. So I added not quite 10 minutes. :D


And now you know just how busy and loud the self talk in my head is, even on simple posts.  :uhoh:

They could be random... Like my black font example above (Late-Night/Lobotomy/Lobster), but that isn't as helpful as something a bit more cohesive.

So far we've had:
Abduction/Underworld/Betrayal &
Implements/Improvisation/Impersonal

In the first I think there really are 3 focal points to choose from: not only three elements, but three things to focus on for an author. The Abduction action, the Underworld nature (either as a supernatural setting or a modifier of persona) and the betrayal as a plot advancement device. It could be argued that in one aspect or another, all three elements are a concrete and not just an abstraction. I (and it would seem all the other writers entering that round) found an immediate completeness to the conditions. A harmony.

In the second round it is much more of an abstraction. Improvisation is almost wholly in the realm of idea and Impersonal is by it's very nature disconnected. Only the readily and unarguably concrete Implements holds it together. I was fine throwing down a bit of a challenge and several authors expressed they had to give this one some serious thought... I'm also really pleased with the level of creativity it engendered.

Overall, less abstraction is probably better. There needs to be at least one concrete element for writers to begin pinning things to. Also, having some harmony between elements helps. Absolutely the first round had three elements that flowed nicely into each other. Abduction! By whom? Someone in the Underworld. Why? Betrayal is at the root of it. But even in the second round I hope I reached a harmonious binding of the three elements. Implements, or tools must be used. How? Improvisation, use them randomly for effect, but be cold and Impersonal about it...

In a very real way the three elements ARE the story in miniature and the various authors simply round out the details with an additional 3,000 words or so...

You're already on the list Darlin'.  :*

Here is what we have if it is first volunteered, first used...



I moved Essenceof Red to the bottom as she's already gone and I'm after that. But any new volunteers come after EoR and shove me further down. I'm just a failsafe.

as soon as you say "Your words or your life"

Now, we know that snuffmuffs like you would take that as a challenge. RRH should say "give me your words and I promise when your time finally comes, you will go smothered by big meaty pussy lips".

I've avoided volunteering so far partly because I'm a mod and don't want to look like I'm flinging my power around, and largely because it's a lot of self-imposed pressure and I'd wind up crying because what if nobody can write anything to my words and they'll all hate me and I'll ruin the fun forever and

Whether it's boring, totally out there, or apparent that your mod power has completely gone to your head. Because your point of view is yet another new and different view. ;)





 

Ok, fine, I also acknowledge that RRH's topic has completely pushed me as a writer, and for that, I am more than thankful.

Thanks, Rosie and CB...

That brings the list to



I'll take myself off the list, but I remain the fail-safe in case someone flakes out.

Instead of making some people wait a year or so... Next round I'll use a random number generator. :D  Also, we can fix the positions (adding numbers as needed) and I'll return a name to eligibility after two rounds sitting out. So EssenceofRed will be back in the lottery for picking the theme beginning round four, kittyumbrass will be eligible again round six.
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: Red Right Hand on July 31, 2015, 08:04:46 PM
In addition to the random number generator for who picks the theme, I'll also randomize the Word Count Limit from this list:

2,000
2,500
3,000
3,500
4,000
4,500
5,000

That ought to shake things up a bit.

Our next list of volunteers to randomize from:

Any new volunteers will be added after Cannonball to the next eligible position. I will remain as the fail-safe in case the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme.


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit will invalidate that choice from eligibility for two successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...

Er, no, no... just hinting at the availability any information then not providing it is a tease. I do indeed have a strong idea of what my Sept/Oct theme might be and can probably twist it a bit to fit many different themes, but even I'm not stupid enough to write it sans theme.

The Limit is locked down, it won't disappear on me. I've 2 PM's out to 2 different nominees. First to reply is picking the Theme. I'll also begin thinking of a failsafe. I'll issue a 3rd random selection if needed, but no more...

The second selectee has delivered 3 tags so we are a lock on the Theme and the Word Count Limit for November submissions.

All will be revealed on October 31st. Stay tuned.

And there is still time to read the September/October stories based on Elsewhen/Hierarchy/Entitlement with a limit of 3,000 words and then you may cast your Vote (http://www.rapecage.com/forum/index.php/topic,1230.0.html) in the poll. That closes out October 31st. Members and Guests may vote once each cycle.

Post by: Red Right Hand on January 13, 2016, 01:14:32 PM
The lists have grown so much longer than when we started... I'm going to move to exempting a selected member or word count from eligibility for 3 cycles or 6 months. This change will take place effective before the next cycle opens (March/April 2016). Is this a good idea or not?


Shall we try including 1,200, 7,000 and 8,500 words? 8,500 is a lot of words in 30 days and not everyone has that kind of time... Especially if they are actively RPing. I wouldn't ever want to go higher than 8,500 and it may be pushing the envelope.


Would we like a minimum as well? I.E.:

Or is a minimum too off putting?


Currently the tolerance is 10% on the max word count.... So if the limit is 3,000 up to 3,300 is acceptable. That same 10% could apply to under. So 2,600 - 3,000 effectively becomes 2,340 - 3,300.

Do we want a tolerance or a strict enforcement? Records indicate one author went over by 12 words on a 4,500 word limit. Myself I've hit target exactly but struggled mightily that cycle to not go over.

Tolerance: yea or nay? 10% or 5%?


Seriously I'd like feedback. Not only from authors. I feel readers have a stake in this too. If we aren't pleasing readers there goes most of the point of the thing.
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: kittyumbrass on January 13, 2016, 06:42:06 PM
Argh! a lower limit would really mess me up, I'd stress so much about that, I wouldn't dare to write anything (or else, fill it with padding just to be sure!)

I'm pretty sure at least 3 of my entries would have failed on that system.
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: LiskaHunter on January 13, 2016, 06:48:43 PM
I agree with [member=170]kittyumbrass[/member].  A Lower Limit, in my own humble opinion, creates artificial restrictions that would stifle creativity. An upper limit, sure, which is part of the challenge. I don't necessarily like the fluctuating limit, but I see the point of it to provide an interesting challenge when combined with the three-element requirement. 10% over the limit seems reasonable, but I really don't mind having it a hard-limit. After all, clever use of words enhance a story ("mansion" vice "really big, expensive house"..."carmine" vice "that shade of red that blood is").

Meh. Just my two cents.
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: cumgetme on January 13, 2016, 09:56:22 PM
As far as my opinion goes...as a writer the 1750 was just right for me. Anything too much lower and I would have been in trouble. If I'm to write a story with a decent plot that has all the good stuff and ends appropriately without a rush towards the end, I need at least 1500 minimum. That's just me though. With my paid writing for the articles I do, I'm OK with 500-1,000 limits. For my stories, though, to have a nice build up in the beginning, a good action section and then a really good close, that doesn't work for me. Of course, my opinion. I'll ALWAYS try to write within any limit because, well I'm a writer :D I like a challenge. So there's my two cents.


As a reader? Hahaha...I rather enjoy having to stop what I'm doing to scroll down a bit further  :girlwank:
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: Alexander on January 14, 2016, 04:33:11 AM
While I haven't taken part in this contest yet Im always interested in the topics and reading the entries.


My thoughts as a reader are this. The 1750 limit was a good base this time around. I am time poor and being able to read all the entries in a short time once in a while is a bonus. Anything over about 5000 and the story really needs to grip my attention or Im going to back to around half way. And yeah. As a number of people mentioned this time around, a lower word count sets challenges of its own. The writer needs to be highly focussed and very clear about the story line - no room for wandering or waffling. Nice and tight, like some other things that are appreciated on this site.  >:) :D


The other facet as a reader is I'd prefer to have five or six shorter stories than three long ones because other prospective writers struggled in the timeframe to get their stories finished. So yeah. A lower upper limit might encourage more entries on a consistent basis.


As a writer, Id prefer a mid sized target simply because of the time thing again. One day when the stars align, Ill write something - those stars being a topic I like and a word count that suits.


Finally, I like the set up as it is. More fiddly runs the risk of making it un-necessarily over complicated. It works now - if it aint broke........
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: Ingenue on January 14, 2016, 11:58:22 AM
I'd never dare the longer limits if they also had a lower bound. Too much pressure. However, take it as from someone who has never done more than PLAN an entry yet!
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: pinkwarkitten14 on January 14, 2016, 03:06:48 PM
Yeah I think you'd get way less participation with both a word count floor AND a ceiling. Personally, I never really know exactly how long a story is gonna be until I actually write it, and some of the higher word count floors could be very daunting. Besides, a short, succinct story can be just as hot as a long one.... Beautiful, even, given the right author.

So yeah long story short I think that imposing a minimum words requirement would be creatively restrictive, and might damage the good amount of writer participation we've had thus far - and certainly keep others from trying out the contest.
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: EssenceofRed on January 14, 2016, 05:06:44 PM
Personally, I never have any problem getting up to the word count, it's usually all about getting down to the maximum limit for me! (I need to start using the word mansion more often.) With that said, there's something about the minimum limit that I find psychologically daunting. I'm getting a little panicked just thinking about it! I don't mind the tolerance, although I do try to hold myself strictly accountable.
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: Red Right Hand on January 14, 2016, 06:43:32 PM
Certainly the tolerance is needed if it is just a stated ceiling. Try as everyone obviously does, I don't want to turn a story back just because it's a couple words over.

10% may be too generous, especially at the upper limits. 6,000 and 6,600 are pretty far apart. Even 5% on a 1,750 limit allows up to 1,838...


I'm digging the feedback. It isn't a closed topic yet. :)
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: Alexander on January 14, 2016, 09:29:48 PM
Maybe there's no need for a rule as such about tolerance. Just discretion. I doubt anyone is going to arch up about you using some judgement and neither if you were to return a story to some extent and ask them to trim or ad 50 or so words.

This is after all fun process and not a regulated, closely controlled international voting process open to public scrutiny. I nearly said Federal Election but I bit my tongue when suddenly the phrase "pregnant chad" rushed across my minds eye. I think even now RRH has in place a more credible process than that.  :rofl:
Title: Re: I Want To Pick The Theme!
Post by: death2uall on January 15, 2016, 01:14:24 AM
I loathe word count limits generally, so I should probably not even participate in this particular discussion, but I will add my two cents anyway because writing is quite literally my first passion: I became passionate about writing before the word had even entered my vocabulary.

If half a dozen contestants each come up with 40,000 words worth reading in a 30-day period (unlikely but possible), I will FIND the time to read those 240,000 words. If five of those six come up with 40,000 words that are not worth reading, I'll know within 2,000 words or so that I would never vote for their stories and not further waste my time. I've already stopped reading several stories that failed to interest me partway through, and it didn't stop me from voting. I won't continue to read a story that bores, disgusts, or just fails to interest me for some vague concept like "fair play." If you haven't interested me in the first couple of hundred words, you're not going to interest me later on.

As a potential contestant, I will always object to word-count limits. I don't give a damn what "professional" markets like magazines (and that is what I'm reminded of every time I see a word count limit on a contest here, no matter how "generous") do; I am not a "professional" writer. I write for my own pleasure, and I will not have my pleasure constrained by somebody else's decision.

Particularly not by a decision that seems to be controlled by the roll of a fucking die. I have already refused to compete in three of these contests specifically because of this arbitrary and random word count limit, and am likely to continue doing so.

I also fucking hate the "random" choice of who gets to pick the theme. I've already seen the random choice of people who chose to sign up after me and, frankly, I don't understand why this should be. People should be chosen in the order in which they volunteered. I understand people who've failed to respond being placed at the back of the line, but frankly I've already seen people who signed up after me chosen first, and frankly it makes me wonder why I fucking bothered.

It's actually supposed to add another element of skill to the thing. I find it rewarding and challenging to have a word count limit. Based on reactions from others, I feel I am not alone in this. I think it is enjoyable for many of the participants.

Rather than viewing it as a limit of some sort or as belittling, I believe most who participate find it empowering and flattering to be given the credit that they can exercise some control over how they produce a story.

For every day writing, nope, I wouldn't impose a limit on myself, nor should anyone. However, in context of a contest it also attempts to level the playing field. Few would argue that it is as easy to immerse a reader, build a cohesive milieu and add exacting detail in 1,000 words as it is in 10,000. Without a word count limit it is likely that those who write short will do so and those who write long will do their thing. Too much disparity in length builds an imbalance. The lengthier tales (if executed at the same level of craft) inherently stand a better chance of gripping the reader and particularly when it comes to detailed erotica. A rape scene of brief content vs a prolonged series of scenes is not the same animal and harder to judge side by side with equal weight.


I write for my own pleasure, and I will not have my pleasure constrained by somebody else's decision.

Fortunately not every story posted to the board is obligated to be entered into the contest. No one is being constrained by any other. Post what you want when you want.


I also fucking hate the "random" choice of who gets to pick the theme...

That is meant to be a bit of fun that encourages participation.

It also saves me from trying to randomly drum up a volunteer only to be repeatedly met with silence. At least I'm dipping into a well of willing participants.

The great length the list has grown to has made it a bit unwieldy. Hence the idea that those chosen will be exempted for longer amounts of time in order to help get other candidates a chance at choosing the theme.

Also left unsaid in my above post was the fact that some users on the list have never replied when called. I will be reaching out to them to make sure they are still active on the board and actively willing to participate. Those who don't reply will be culled.

 I'm not sure how I feel about a lower as well as an upper..

 I now have two more instalments of the  series which sprang out of the 'candidate'  but both were well above 3000, and this months entry just gelled as i was starting to type out the base premise...

 back to polishing those.. and  altogeather?   that series will likely land between 40 and 50,000 words    :doh:

I've PMed volunteers on the list and asked them to return a confirmation to remain on the list.

I am hereby exempting volunteers and word counts for 3 cycles after they are chosen rather than 2. This is retroactive.

The max word count values 7,000 and 8,500 were added to the table. I inserted them in a randomized order.

The official published tolerance (rather than unstated as a rule floating in my head) is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down.


Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. I will remain as the fail-safe in case the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. If you are chosen, then you become ineligible for the following three contest cycles.


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
The official tolerance is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down. Until the Word Count is trimmed the story will not certify for entry.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit will invalidate that choice from eligibility for three successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Still accepting members to volunteer for the random drawing to determine the theme. Simply post your willingness below or send me a PM.

Also left unsaid in my above post was the fact that some users on the list have never replied when called.


It is a "bit of fun" that "encourages participation" by ONE participant: you. If participants knew from the month before that they'd have a chance to prepare a theme, you'd have a lot more responses. At this point you're averaging one or two non-responders a month. You're ALREADY dipping into a well of willing participants. That's why we signed up for this shit. The most likely reason you're getting users on the list who have never replied is that, out of the blue and with no warning, they're met with a demand for a theme and their immediate response is "Uuuuuuuuhhhhhhh. . . . "

And kindly don't give me any crap about the "great length of the list." the length of the list of currently active participants is EIGHT PEOPLE, plus a reserve of previously-chosen posters that you seem unwilling to reveal more than one or two of. The way this should work is that the first active participant (kittyumbrass, if you've managed to keep the list in chronological order), followed by Red, Liska, etc.. gets to choose the next month's theme. Participants who've already chosen or failed to respond should go to the bottom of the INACTIVE list. Then, at the end of every month, one person at the top of the INACTIVE list should move to the bottom of the ACTIVE list. This will allow new participants to join all month, keep the older participants active, and dispense with the "random choice" nonsense that is only going to increase non-respondents and piss off people who have been waiting months for their chance to contribute.

Seriously, I can't fucking believe you decided rolling a fucking die was the way to go.

This is just for fun there's no money on the line and if you're going to get this worked up over not getting to pick the theme maybe you should take a step back and evaluate why you are feeling so pissed over something so trivial to your everyday life.

I am new to this site and story contest but I am interested I writing stories. I'm trying to catch up with all the rules and such. So for the next entry period is there a theme yet or a word count when do entries begin? Or has it past?

Heya caveshots,

Thanks for asking...

We run on a bimonthly schedule. One month to submit stories, one month to gather votes. Right now we are in the voting phase for March/April.

The next cycle will open in May. I try and have the Theme and word count up on or near the first of the month at 00:00 UMT. The theme gets selected by a member and I hold it until the contest opens. So ony that member and myself should know the theme ahead of time. Similarly, only I know the word count until the "reveal" at the beginning of a submissions month.

On my honor, I do not use my foreknowledge to get a head start. I try my best to push all ideas on the theme out of my head.

Everyone should start from the same time...

Look for the next submission cycle to open in about 2 weeks: on or near Midnight UK/London time when it changes from April 30 to May 1. I look forward to seeing an entry from you. The contest is open to any member that can match the 3 element theme and not go over the word count limit. It also must be submitted before the month long entry phase closes.

The Rules (http://www.rapecage.com/forum/index.php/topic,610.0.html) might be a bit long winded, but really boil down to meet the deadline, include all elements and mind the word count. Additions are no use of the @someone's name mention system of the board to try and pull members into your thread and garner votes that way. It is a contest of words, so no embedding or linking to pictures, videos or audio. You can check out Rules specifics at the linked thread.

After submissions end, all the eligible stories may be voted on by members and guests for one month. One vote per person. Most votes win the cycle.


If you want to be added to the list of volunteers to pick the theme, just reply below or PM with your desire to be included in that part of the contest. I'm happy to add any member.

Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. I will remain as the fail-safe in case the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. If you are chosen, then you become ineligible for the following three contest cycles.


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
The official tolerance is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down. Until the Word Count is trimmed the story will not certify for entry.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit will invalidate that choice from eligibility for three successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Still accepting members to volunteer for the random drawing to determine the theme. Simply post your willingness below or send me a PM.

It has been suggested by someone (and I quite agree) that we introduce a No Word Count Limit and a Wild Card Theme...


Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. Theme volunteers, after selection and completion of a theme, will not be eligible for three successive rounds and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...

I have now introduced Wild Card Theme to the list. Wild Card Theme will be the default when the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. Wild Card Theme may also be chosen at random and never goes out of play. If Wild Card Theme is selected or used as an alternate, it will ascend to slot 1 for the next cycle and push all choices down a place.

In the event that No Word Count Limit is selected it will mean that authors may submit stories of any length so long as they meet the theme. Write fully to your own open ended length to present the tale as you would most like to do.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit (including No Word Count Limit) will invalidate that choice from eligibility for three successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list.

For September/October, 2016...

Theme and Word Count locked in extra early...

I'll probably roll this one out early. Summer is a busy time and a little extra notice won't hurt. Plan on seeing the next submission cycle open Monday August 15th.

Due to late timing and unforeseen circumstances... The theme will be decided by the alternate which means Wild Card twice in a row.

Word count remains locked in from prior selection.

Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. Theme volunteers, after selection and completion of a theme, will not be eligible for three successive rounds and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...

I have now introduced Wild Card Theme to the list. Wild Card Theme will be the default when the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. Wild Card Theme may also be chosen at random and never goes out of play. If Wild Card Theme is selected or used as an alternate, it will ascend to slot 1 for the next cycle and push all choices down a place.


Wild Card Theme:
Any new Wild Card Themes will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. If they are chosen, then they become ineligible for the following three contest cycles and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
The official tolerance is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down. Until the Word Count is trimmed the story will not certify for entry.

In the event that No Word Count Limit is selected it will mean that authors may submit stories of any length so long as they meet the theme. Write fully to your own open ended length to present the tale as you would most like to do.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit (including No Word Count Limit) will invalidate that choice from eligibility for three successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Still accepting members to volunteer for the random drawing to determine the theme. Simply post your willingness below or send me a PM.

If you want to be removed from the list of volunteers, PM me or post below.

If you have a suggestion for a Wild Card Theme, please PM me or post it below for consideration of inclusion.

Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. Theme volunteers, after selection and completion of a theme, will not be eligible for three successive rounds and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...

I have now introduced Wild Card Theme to the list. Wild Card Theme will be the default when the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. Wild Card Theme may also be chosen at random and never goes out of play. If Wild Card Theme is selected or used as an alternate, it will ascend to slot 1 for the next cycle and push all choices down a place.


Wild Card Theme:
Any new Wild Card Themes will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. If they are chosen, then they become ineligible for the following three contest cycles and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
The official tolerance is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down. Until the Word Count is trimmed the story will not certify for entry.

In the event that No Word Count Limit is selected it will mean that authors may submit stories of any length so long as they meet the theme. Write fully to your own open ended length to present the tale as you would most like to do.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit (including No Word Count Limit) will invalidate that choice from eligibility for three successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Still accepting members to volunteer for the random drawing to determine the theme. Simply post your willingness below or send me a PM.

If you want to be removed from the list of volunteers, PM me or post below.

If you have a suggestion for a Wild Card Theme, please PM me or post it below for consideration of inclusion.

Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. Theme volunteers, after selection and completion of a theme, will not be eligible for three successive rounds and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...

I have now introduced Wild Card Theme to the list. Wild Card Theme will be the default when the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. Wild Card Theme may also be chosen at random and never goes out of play. If Wild Card Theme is selected or used as an alternate, it will ascend to slot 1 for the next cycle and push all choices down a place.


Wild Card Theme:
Any new Wild Card Themes will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. If they are chosen, then they become ineligible for the following three contest cycles and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
The official tolerance is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down. Until the Word Count is trimmed the story will not certify for entry.

In the event that No Word Count Limit is selected it will mean that authors may submit stories of any length so long as they meet the theme. Write fully to your own open ended length to present the tale as you would most like to do.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit (including No Word Count Limit) will invalidate that choice from eligibility for three successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Still accepting members to volunteer for the random drawing to determine the theme. Simply post your willingness below or send me a PM.

If you want to be removed from the list of volunteers, PM me or post below.

If you have a suggestion for a Wild Card Theme, please PM me or post it below for consideration of inclusion.

I'll be straight up honest. I'm simply taking the November/December theme choice. I'll be traveling durring the end of October into the beginning of November and it will simplify things for me when it comes to logistics of flipping the contest between closing the votes and opening a new contest.

Word count locked in by random lottery.

Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. Theme volunteers, after selection and completion of a theme, will not be eligible for three successive rounds and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...

I have now introduced Wild Card Theme to the list. Wild Card Theme will be the default when the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. Wild Card Theme may also be chosen at random and never goes out of play. If Wild Card Theme is selected or used as an alternate, it will ascend to slot 1 for the next cycle and push all choices down a place.


Wild Card Theme:
Any new Wild Card Themes will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. If they are chosen, then they become ineligible for the following three contest cycles and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
The official tolerance is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down. Until the Word Count is trimmed the story will not certify for entry.

In the event that No Word Count Limit is selected it will mean that authors may submit stories of any length so long as they meet the theme. Write fully to your own open ended length to present the tale as you would most like to do.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit (including No Word Count Limit) will invalidate that choice from eligibility for three successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Still accepting members to volunteer for the random drawing to determine the theme. Simply post your willingness below or send me a PM.

If you want to be removed from the list of volunteers, PM me or post below.

If you have a suggestion for a Wild Card Theme, please PM me or post it below for consideration of inclusion.

Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. Theme volunteers, after selection and completion of a theme, will not be eligible for three successive rounds and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...

I have now introduced Wild Card Theme to the list. Wild Card Theme will be the default when the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. Wild Card Theme may also be chosen at random and never goes out of play. If Wild Card Theme is selected or used as an alternate, it will ascend to slot 1 for the next cycle and push all choices down a place.


Wild Card Theme:
Any new Wild Card Themes will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. If they are chosen, then they become ineligible for the following three contest cycles and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
The official tolerance is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down. Until the Word Count is trimmed the story will not certify for entry.

In the event that No Word Count Limit is selected it will mean that authors may submit stories of any length so long as they meet the theme. Write fully to your own open ended length to present the tale as you would most like to do.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit (including No Word Count Limit) will invalidate that choice from eligibility for three successive rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Still accepting members to volunteer for the random drawing to determine the theme. Simply post your willingness below or send me a PM.

If you want to be removed from the list of volunteers, PM me or post below.

If you have a suggestion for a Wild Card Theme, please PM me or post it below for consideration of inclusion.

Right.

I've been having a difficult time the last few cycles getting a volunteer lined up due to inactivity of certain volunteers who seem to keep coming up in the random lot.

I also want to decrease the time allotted to choose a theme, which had previously been approximately two weeks before the next contest cycle was to begin. I feel that may give the person choosing the theme an unfair head start and also increases the likelihood that the theme could "leak" before it is officially announced.

So I want active volunteers who can pick a theme on about 3-5 days notice.


If you want to be a volunteer to help pick the contest theme you have to join up or re-up now.

Note that the list of volunteers has been wiped clean. Post your intent below or PM me to get (back) on the list...


Thanks,
RRH

Our list of volunteers to randomize from:
Any new volunteers will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. Theme volunteers, after selection and completion of a theme, will not be eligible for two subsequent rounds and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...

I have now introduced Wild Card Theme to the list. Wild Card Theme will be the default when the randomly selected individual does not deliver a theme. Wild Card Theme may also be chosen at random and never goes out of play. If Wild Card Theme is selected or used as an alternate, it will ascend to slot 1 for the next cycle and push all choices down a place.


Wild Card Theme:
Any new Wild Card Themes will be added as the next eligible position at the bottom of the list. If they are chosen, then they become ineligible for the following three contest cycles and drop to last place on the list. When they come back in play they will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Our list of Word Count Limit choices to be randomized:
The official tolerance is 5%. In other words, you will be asked to edit for compliance if you exceed the Word Count Limit by more than 5% rounded down. Until the Word Count is trimmed the story will not certify for entry.

In the event that No Word Count Limit is selected it will mean that authors may submit stories of any length so long as they meet the theme. Write fully to your own open ended length to present the tale as you would most like to do.

Just as with the theme volunteers, the random selection of a Word Count Limit (including No Word Count Limit) will invalidate that choice from eligibility for two subsequent rounds and drop it to last place on the list. When it comes back in play it will move to slot 1 and push all choices down a place...


Still accepting members to volunteer for the random drawing to determine the theme. Simply post your willingness below or send me a PM.

If you want to be removed from the list of volunteers, PM me or post below.

If you have a suggestion for a Wild Card Theme, please PM me or post it below for consideration of inclusion.

Cheers all. @Red Right Hand (http://www.rapecage.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=708) hasn't responded to me for a while now, and I hope bloody covid-19 hasn't got him or his loved ones. Any case, I'm no match for RRH and how he does the contest, so bear with me whilst I choose some random theme(s) for the May/June Story Contest, probably repeats. We'll get back to normal when he returns.

So I have taken over the Story contest until such time as @Red Right Hand (http://www.rapecage.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=708) returns.  So may of our members are absent, that  thought it only prudent to put out a call and find out who is interested in picking the theme.   Sign up here and we will put your name on the list.  Hope to see lots of you on there.
