I tried this before but then I got lazy and it never happened so here it is again.

okay, heres how its going to go down:

1. people sign up (at least 9 because I want to do at least three primary 1vs.1vs.1 comps)
2. I break you guys into three groups
3. I present an inspirational picture to each group (a different one for each group)
4. each individual writes a non-prose piece based off of the picture in your group and i'll give you about a week from when i give you a picture until they are due.
5. I'll post a thread pitting the pieces from people in the same group (same picture) against each other and i'll do that for each group

1. the winners from each group are then placed into the 'final round group'
2. this group will be given a new picture and will have 1 more week to submit a piece (again, non-prose). However, just because i'm an asshole and i can, these pieces can have NO similies, metaphors (blatant metaphors that compare 2 unlike things with 'is', symbolism is ok), or any punctuation
3. these pieces will be put against each other and the winner will put this in their sig and a specified amount of points:

and will also be named the UG intellectual of the year, a prestigious honor, i know.

Well, sign up!

2. Dante
3. Jammy
4. Daemonika
5. Stratkat
6. Corey
7. Tigga
8. Matt
9. Fate_Of Mind
10. Henry
11. Alk_3_Addict
12. GreenFinger (****, I forgot your name :( )
13. MikeyMike

Ask me any questions you have.

11-11-2006, 03:11 PM

EDIT: 3. these pieces will be put against each other and the winner will put this in their sig and a specified amount of points

11-14-2006, 10:11 AM
What's a simile? What's a metaphor? What's a blatant metaphor? What's 'unlike' mean? How long is a piece of likeness?

Answer me these questions 5 and I'll see if I want in.

oh sorry, I forgot to mention it to your group :p:

The piece is due in exactly 7 DAYS

11-29-2006, 07:17 PM
Isnt the picture you chose a little.. wrong? i mean i can udnerstand with that persons consent to use it. But someone elses picture without there consent... i just think another should be chosen.

if it shows up on google images than it's fair game methinks :)

If you guys are really really opposed to it though, I could change it...

11-29-2006, 11:34 PM
I chose to ignore the person in my groups picture, I chose to write more on the scenery, so it doesn't bother me, don't change them cause I've already got a rough draft of mine.

11-30-2006, 12:55 AM
OOOO everyone got a different pic. well for those of oyu that dont know group 3's picture is of some fairly hot emo girl holding a sign that says "excuse me but i lub you" with hearts all over it

dont change it

cause ive already written for it.

11-30-2006, 08:11 AM
Hahahahahaha I lub you synth.

12-05-2006, 11:17 PM
I Could Turn Some Shit In If You'd Clear Your Box Son.

12-11-2006, 07:06 PM
Dude, come on synth get off your lazy ass, clear you box, and put up the comp, they were due a week ago.

12-15-2006, 07:50 PM
so.... whats the hold up?

12-16-2006, 07:19 AM
^ I think we're waiting for other comps to finish first- I'm not sure if synth is still in charge of this comp, The Hurt Within might be- can we have an update on this one ?

so the problem here was December was the busyest month I've had in a long long time and just kinda gave up on this. Also, my PM box was (and is currently) full so i couldnt get a couple of the submissions that would be here by the deadline.

So heres what I'm going to do. I'll give everyone ]2 days to send me their piece if I dont already have it and if you dont you do not lose points you will just not be in the comp, is that okay with you Steve?

List of people's who I have:
Alk 3 Addict

4 people is not enough to have this comp... unless you want me to change the rules and just pit these 4 pieces against eachother...

Sorry for the inconvenience everyone

01-06-2007, 11:53 PM
i could have sworn i sent you my piece, and if you didn't get it, forget it because i wrote it on the spot and didn't save it.

01-06-2007, 11:58 PM
****. Sorry man.

01-07-2007, 07:34 AM
Synth it's kewl, you don't need to deduct any points from those who don't send theirs in, it wouldnt be there fault so yah, its kewl.

01-07-2007, 12:43 PM
yeah i'm not sure if i still have mine, but i'll look for it.

01-18-2007, 09:09 PM
this still on?

01-19-2007, 12:35 PM
I dunno. Synthy ?

02-17-2007, 02:10 PM
ok because your too freaking lazy to do this! im using the rules against you. you know that lil rule that if you dont submit a piece you get deducted 1 point? yeah well. i think if you make a comp and people write pieces and you dont START IT your deducted all the points of the people so #1 Synth -13 points :)

02-17-2007, 02:37 PM
Mike's got a point (I think your name is Mike, if not, I'm terribly sorry).

02-17-2007, 02:45 PM
Haha to this guy's comment ^

Looks like I'm too late to join this. It was a great idea though, if another one appears, I'll look out for it.

02-17-2007, 02:52 PM
Just let this thread die.

Could a mod lock it?

The entire comp. fell apart, but I'll talk to Dylan and see about starting a new one next month.
