Right this is perhaps 2 of 3 in the vengeance series...but anyway this one is gonna be far easier and more along the lines of getting personal vendettas resolved.

Here in this comp you get to call out firstly your 'nemesis' writer and then call out a piece they wrote; for a special 1v1 match, you can also call out more than one writer to participate in this match making it a 1v1v1. Perhaps you lost to it once, and think now with a few revisions you can beat it this time around.

Each match will be worth 2pts to the winner and -2pts to the looser(s), and you are permitted to participate in 3 matches in total (either 1v1s or 1v1v1s) making the maximum points available 6!

Once your name is on the list you have entered a binding contract that you cannot retract from. (doing so will result in points losses) This is merely choosing old pieces so its not like you have to write anything. But by entering in this contract you then allow any of the other competitors access to your back catalogue, and they can choose any piece they wish: as can you.

When you put your name forward please try and be as accomodating as possible, if you have a website hosting your work, give me the link. So as to make finding that "bastard piece" all the more easier.

In the interest of fairness please keep the match ups resonably level in terms of when they were written and length style etc...I mean I'm expecting most of these matches to be ex-1v1s that were too close, or matches you felt cheated out of a win by a noob vote.

Well, i would enter, but when i first came to S&L in march last year (i think) i was utter bollocks! I don't want to lose 2 points. :(

Thats the whole point though, If someone chooses your first ever piece, you choose theres! Even match-up. Plus its only points, wheres the fun, I lost 4 to benji, I didn't care. I'd be 4 points clear were it not for that.

Ha, feels like ou still got a bit of a grudge the THW :)

Yeah I'm game, I've posted some pretty bad pieces before though, but heck I'm just sliding down the points table anyway :)

I'm in.

^ YAY! you've made my (hungover) morning. Thanks man.

Do you have a place where you store all your stuff, like online so people can browse?

Well I'm hoping some people will want to face pieces they lost to in really close 1v1s or something, plus a few of us have rivalries here, like Myself and Final, we love each others work so 1v1s are really competitive. Thats the plan.

But yeah thanks man

Ah just check in my previously posted threads in my UG profile :)

I should really put more stuff up, I did have something a while back on freewebs that I kinda just didn't add much to :)

All in good time...

I call out Dylan, as I think we need to figure out who is the better Dylan again. DanteR* that is. And I'll up everything soon.

I think I might join up in this, just because. I don't have just one place where all of my stuff is posted, but my xanga holds more of my "better" old/recent stuff. The rest are all in notebooks/notepads/e-mails.

So, if my xanga page will work well enough, I'm in. If not, I'm still in, biznitch.;)

i could probably make a website for everyone to upload their shit for this competition to if you want.

it'd take a few days though.

In, all my stuff is on UG, even all the way to the very first song I ever wrote.
Ug threads by me (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/search.php?searchid=2402775)

edit: I don't really know who to call out, so i'll do it later or wait for someone to challenge me.

My link doesn't work anymore, so I guess the URL changed. I'll set up an account on poetry vault or something.

Ok, i'm now a featured poet on Poetry Vault, but for some reason when i go to "browse" my poems, nothing comes up. This is also the case on your link Steve :confused:

Ohh yeha I had that trouble with my first song, just keep adding them, then all of a sudden they all appear. Although i dunno why my link would do that :/

Edit: I've now changed my link, so it should work.

Yay. (I'm in)


edit : This site's a bitch, it lists poems by alphabetical order.
edit 2 : just copy/paste the prose-ish ones in word, I'm too lazy to fix em up.

Okay

Works (http://www.poetryvault.com/List_of_Poems.asp?Poet=Kyle%20Smith) got an account, there's only one poem right now though.

Edit: It took an hour, but I put up every poem I've ever put on UG onto poetry vault.

Sooooooooooooo

We wait for people to post things up so we can call them up, right? Or do we have to do it already?

I've decided I'm going to take all my xanga pieces and throw them in a poetryvault page, and then I'm going to sift through my notebooks and e-mails for other things I've written to put in. So yeah, I'm definitely in when I get an account all set up and prepared.

edit - So I was going to make a PV website, but I'm confused. I was submitting a poem/registering/whatever but in the way end at the confirmation page, it didn't say my name.. just my middle initial, and then it put in Steve's e-mail address instead of mine. What the crap is that?
