I'll give it a go, can nuclear caused winters be included? I kinda have a nuclear theme concept thing going

I'd much prefer the season of Winter.

11-06-2006, 05:40 PM
Right then, this is a Super Comp (at least until someone tells me otherwise.) I was going to do this last month (albeit right at the end) but as some unforeseen events occurred I've postponed this a couple of weeks, so instead of the planned Autumn Comp, I'll just get a Winter one up.

1) All songs must concern the season of Winter or anything pertaining to Winter (snow, Christmas, red-nosed fucking reindeer, etc.)

2) I'm going to go ahead and make it a two-stanza minimum. However many lines in each stanza is left to your discretion.

3) At this early stage, I'll be looking for 12 competitors. Depending on the number of people wanting to participate, I may increase that number.

4) The due date will be set when all spaces are filled.

Dæmönika

Before I add any more names, is there a maximum limit for people to take part? If I add these names, it brings the total to 23.

twistedsoul87
11-07-2006, 07:29 AM
so how bout capping it at 24??

Dæmönika
11-07-2006, 08:50 AM

Might as well. No more places open.

Deadline for songs: November 17th.

twistedsoul87
11-07-2006, 10:08 AM
looks like you added me twice... does that mean I get to submit two songs? :p

Guess you should remove my name from 24 and open it up for one more entry...

11-07-2006, 10:12 AM

I never noticed.

Well if there are any others who want in you can. If the space isn't filled by the deadline, I'll just leave it at 23.

DanteR is Dylan and Frd_Marshall I believe is Fred (correct me if I'm wrong here) :)

Edit: and Falloutboy is Henry

Do these have to be songs?

I don't think so...

I hope not...

Mike?

So how do we go about submitting these pieces? And once we do can we edit them (before the due date i.e.)?

Dæmönika
11-07-2006, 04:29 PM

You PM it to me. No you can't edit them afterwards, as I will be using what is PM'd first.

Ummmm I'm in, and the name's James.

Don't suppose we can submit recordings as well?

No, this is a lyrics contest.

11-07-2006, 07:23 PM
I might be interested in participating.. I'll PM you the lyrics if I decide to write them.

Dæmönika

Sorry, this is full-up now (I should really put that up on the first post.) It may well be an idea to write the lyrics anyway in case someone drops out later on.

SilenceEvolves
11-07-2006, 07:45 PM
let me just let you all in on some of the mindblowing amazingness that you are about to face.

you can't drown yourself in a frozen lake

sorry.

So theres no prose?

streetcarp19
11-07-2006, 10:06 PM
^Yeah, there should be, cause that is really all I write.

SilenceEvolves
11-07-2006, 10:24 PM
i vote no.

advantage me.

streetcarp19
11-07-2006, 10:39 PM
Yeah, if it was heads up...but since it is a 24 person "royal rumble," then.......

this might be the one of the largest comps I have ever participated in, no?

SilenceEvolves
11-07-2006, 10:42 PM
that i can remember.

down with prose!

punchupatatigge
11-07-2006, 10:45 PM
^Yeah, there should be, cause that is really all I write.

Yeah, as of late I've found myself incapable of writing poetry, which is terrible. Either way, I'm happy. If prose is allowed, then I can write something easily and quickly. If not, then I can polish up on poetry/lyrics.

#1 synth
11-07-2006, 10:46 PM
write prose and then turn it into lyrics?

Anyway, this should be a fun comp, I'm excited :)

streetcarp19
11-07-2006, 10:49 PM
I just haven't been in the mood to be restrained lately by a certain structure outside of what I have in my head or am feeling. Though it probably would be "good" for my writing, it just bugs me sometimes. :(

Well Tigger is my nickname, if you'd rather try and remember Teghvir then be my guest, but if you could hold the sarcasm?

Up with prose!


:p:

Dæmönika
11-08-2006, 06:11 AM
No prose! I'm not putting prose and songs together because I've seen enough 1vs1's to know that they're not good together. Maybe for Spring, I can split it up so we have one group going with songs/poems, the other going for prose.

demonicity
11-08-2006, 06:50 AM
You should have my submission already. :)

Dæmönika
11-11-2006, 06:38 PM
Right then, I've posted my intended format in the first post, so have a mull over that and see if that is satisfactory. So far, I have five pieces including my own, but you still have six (well, almost five now) days to get them in.

#1 synth
11-11-2006, 06:56 PM
you get mine?

11-11-2006, 08:22 PM

Scratch that. I'm not going to be in this. I really wanted to, but I have other things on my mind that are far more important right now. Sorry.

Dylan I have got yours.

I don't spose coz you removed the thing saying it has to be about winter from the rules/participants message it means it doesn't have to be, does it? Because i'm really struggling with that idea, it's gonna be complete ****

Dæmönika
11-13-2006, 03:53 PM

I only got rid of that because I needed somewhere for the layout. It still is about Winter, hence the name is still Winter Comp. It doesn't matter whether you write shit or not, you should see some of the pieces already written up. >.> Dylan.

As said, they'll be in groups for the first round, two groups for the second, and one for the final. They will all be polled.

KillerShroom
11-15-2006, 05:26 PM
I haven't forgotten about it either I've just started writing it and its gonna be forced coz I couldn't get anything normally, ah well, by the deadline being on November 17th do you mean must be in by end of 17th or before 17th?

11-16-2006, 11:44 PM
ok so umm... why do we put limits on the amount of people in a competition? i just dont understand the point of sign ups at all. why not just "send your pieces to me by this day anyone that wants it for this type of comp" i mean we can run a comp with 5 people and we can run one with 35... either way its possible, i think limits are kinda dumb.

another question why 24? why not 25? so we have even groups of 5?just let anybody in... cause yeah...

Dæmönika
11-17-2006, 06:31 AM

Dæmönika
11-19-2006, 08:24 AM
I've moved the deadline forward to the 25th because of personal happenstances occurring this following week, so I believe that is next Saturday. Also, I have about half of the songs/poems in, so this is perhaps a good opportunity to get more people in and PMing me their songs as now you've got an extra week. Good luck everyone.

Click my name on the rightleft, then "send this UGer a Private Message" or similar.

New: Tomorrow is the final day for submitting songs and poems. Anyone later than the time designated (see first post in a couple of minutes) will not be able to take part (obviously.) If someone has submitted and there is no star by your name, or if you haven't submitted but there is a star by your name, tell me.

cubs
11-24-2006, 09:54 PM
i just sent you mine, did you get it?

Dæmönika
11-25-2006, 11:00 AM
I did yes.

I now declare this competition under way. There are 16 people, so 4 of 4. I'll post two groups today and two tomorrow coz i iz a bitch, innit?

Actually I may do all four. Depends if this place'll get all clogged up.

EDIT: I didn't realise I actually got this post bang-on 3pm. :o

EDITEDIT: I think it would be of benefit to everyone (making it fair) that we should keep all songs as incognito as possible so no one is swayed by the author. I shan't be voting.
