Due Date:
Saturday March 15, 2008


We have enough to run the contest, but signups are still open.

Anyone who declares IN on the thread AND submits a piece will be added, up to 12 contestants.

All others after the 12 on the list will be substitutes.
They will be included, if any of the first 12 do not submit a piece.

Failure to submit a piece = lose 1 point.

Send your pieces to me via PM.
I prefer the Forum PM system, but the Profile PM system is acceptable.

When the Polls for the first round are posted, Sunday March 15,
please vote in all the other polls.

Do NOT vote for your own piece. You will be penalized.
Just skip the poll that your piece is in if you don't want to vote in that one.

When I receive your piece, I will put a * next to your name on the list.


Please vote in any of the polls for other Competitions that are open now,

and Best Wishes to all!


************************************************************


Sophomore Competition
A Sophomore Competition is one established for the members relatively new to the Songwriting and Lyrics community, whose join date precludes them from the Newbie Competition. To be eligible, the member must have no more than 1 year from their first threadstart in the main S&L Forum. They must not have received more than a total of 2 points in previous S&L competition(s).

And any type of piece (lyrics, poetry, prose) is eligible for being entered. There is no specific theme that competitors have to follow.

Point Distribution For Sophomore Competitions:
1st Place- 3pts
2nd Place- 2pts
3rd Place- 1pt



Welcome to the Sophomore Competition -- Beta Version.
If successful, this will become a regular feature on S&L
Be the first winner. Make S&L history.

1 - To qualify for this competition you must have a join date of any time
BEFORE October December 1st, 2007

2 - To qualify for this competition you must have NOT received more than 2 points in any previous S&L competition.

3 - To qualify for this competition your first thread on the main S&L forum must have been no earlier than March 1st, 2007

If you meet all three of these requirements, you are eligible.
Post on this thread indicating you are IN.
When enough participants have signed up,
I'll assign a Due Date for submission, by editing this post.
Then, you will send your submission to me, via Private Message.
Do NOT post your piece on this thread.
I suspect 8~12 participants will probably be a good number.


What can I submit?
Any writing that fits S&L standards is acceptable.
It can even be a piece you submitted for critique on the main forum
or entered in a previous contest.
Song, Poetry, Prose, Short Story, it doesn't matter.
A word of advice: Keep it short to medium in length.
In a competition there are many pieces to read.
Voters might just look right past your work, if it's too long.

Can I vote for my own piece?
No.
This is considered poor etiquette.
If you vote for your own piece, you will be penalized
and your competitors in the same poll will each be "gifted" 1 point.

Do I lose points, if I don't win?
No.
But if you sign up, and then don't submit an entry, you will lose one point.

Is this actually fun?
Hell yeah!

I think I'm eligible... I didn't start posting until like July last year... and I don't think I've ever even got any points in a comp before other than 1v1's.

If I am eligible I'd like to be in pleaaase.

Nate,
Your start date is fine.
Your first thread on S&L was May 29, 2007. No problem.
You won 2 points in the Mystery Comp. No problem.
But the points you won in the 1 v1 against Fate of Mind might be a problem.

I have you in, atm. I'll have the Mods, make a ruling.

Eben,
You're in!

I dunno about either, lol, sorry guys but imo you're both capable of earning points against the others in S+L.

SYK if at some point you need extra people then included them, but for the time being I am not sure they are classed as sophomore in S+L.
Filth, pure filth... That's what you are.

in.


first post in here was in like october, and i've lost more points than i've earned, haha

2 - To qualify for this competition you must have NOT received more than 2 points in any previous S&L competition.


can this be bumped up? I've never posted in the main forum yet and only have done short(er) comps...

It's no big deal if not, they are rules.

I don't think the Fate of Mind match I was in counted... we were in different tiers or something, at least if I remember correctly... could have been another one though. Meh, I'll take a look at it.

Either way fair enough.

I think I'm eligable. I'm in. when does it start?
This is Bob. Bob likes sharp things. Bob likes you. I suggest you run from Bob.

I wish my grass was Emo so it would cut itself.

Quote by Radical Bob
I'd like to be in if that's possible. Thanks!
I think it might be.

You were eligible for the last Newbie comp, but you aren't in it.
So there's no possibility of you getting points there.
I'll check with Zack. If you aren't eligible for the next Newbie, you're in, here.


I'll set a Due Date, after we have a few more players.
When I set the date, you will have about a week's notice.

You aren't eligible for this, but you qualify for the next Newbie competition. Look for it around the beginning of April.

To answer you with another quote.

Quote by SomeoneYouKnew/Steve
A Sophomore Competition is one established for the members relatively new to the Songwriting and Lyrics community, whose join date precludes them from the Newbie Competition.


This comp is for those who can't get in on the Newbie Comp... but are still new-ish to the comp scene. Basically, this is breaking them in, while the newbie comp is breaking you in. You can compete at a higher level, but we're not letting you steal their thunder. You wanna compete at a higher level, go start a 1v1 in the sticked "1v1" thread. That's a good way to get into the higher level stuff. Then go from there mate.
#35
Okay.... I'll try that then I'm just disappointed I didn't do so good in the noob competition I guess The chick i wrote the song for dug it and that's all that matters I guess
