so hey, how about a NEWBIE COMP ?






interested? think you have what it takes? just want to have something to work on for the next week or so? more info below !



- 9-12 can sign up (maybe more depending on how fast the spots go).
- Due date will be set once enough people have signed up.
- To sign up just leave a post in this thread saying "im in" (or some terrible pun along those lines).
- The piece

To qualify for this competition you must have a join date of any time after April 1st, 2011 OR a first thread in S&L after April 1st, 2011 -- No exceptions!

If you fail to submit your piece on time, you will be deducted 1 point.
Point distribution:
1st place - 3pts
2nd place - 2pts
3nd place - 1pt

More info:
1) Prose is not allowed (or more clearly: long prose, as in three page long short stories, etc.); aside from that, you can write anything you wish. accepted formats: songs, free verse poetry, verse, play dialogues, etc. just try to keep it short.

2) it doesn't have to rhyme, but it can if you want.

3) When you have your piece done PM it to me. To Private Message (PM) you click on my name, go to where it says "send message" on the left side of my profile, then send me your piece. Please put the title in the message, and use the title "newbie comp, hee hee" for the subject

4) Once polls are up, vote in all other pairings that your piece is not in. You MUST NOT vote for your own piece or we will begin by removing fingers and toes and go from there.

any questions or other stuff go here!


good luck y'all

My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

well, your first piece posted here dates to June, and we haven't been doing many newbie comps lately so i could let you in if you want.


also, buuuuuuuuuuump. come on people, you can do it!

Yeah I'm up for it, should I start working on it now or do I wait until more people join?


I think my first thread was after April, hopefully I'm right

i think i was clear in the original post, but you basically just write a piece (song, poem, whatever) and send it to me. then i put polls up with everyone's pieces, the rest of the users get to vote for the piece(s) they like the most, pieces with most votes wins. this is a competition aimed at 'newbies' though, that is, people who are relatively new to the forum. the criteria is in the first post.
#17
okay, so far i have pieces from ApatheticMe, ali.guitarkid7 and i got one sent to my e-mail i assume that was you adodin, it was sent on saturday i think, confirm me bro.
#19
yeah that was me. Sorry for the late confirmation I only just got my internet working.
#22

Maybe PM the people who've said that they want to partake and haven't submitted? I'm surprised that 5-6 people still haven't submitted anything yet... >_>
#27
well, i have entries from bayant, adodin, apatheticme and ali.guitarkid7. so that makes four, i don't know what's going on with the other guys: the last time blaaargh was online according to the profile thing was august 12, i sent messages to him, beab, housemd, imthedrugs. if i don't get their pieces in in 1-2 days, i'll just put up the ones i have.
