Hello all,

I have posted the themes for the challenges for the rest of the year. These deadlines are pretty sturdy, so there will be little room for extensions. Please, feel free to start getting those writing muscles flexed now! :)

Participation has been dwindling, which is to be expected between a long break of new episodes and summer, but as autumn approaches I hope we can pick things back up again. The amount of participation will always give me an idea of it's worth keeping this community open, especially after the holiday break. If anyone has any thoughts on this, let me know. If we could improve anything, like themes or deadlines or anything else, I'm open to suggestions.

I apologize for the delay of banners again. I have started on them. Who knew a screaming infant could dictate your free time! I should have those up this week, latest next week.

Your mod,
Paynesgrey

It's time to vote!

Please take the time to look over the following entries and vote for your favorite three: 1st, 2nd and 3rd places (NO MORE, NO LESS). THERE IS NO VOTING FOR YOURSELF, and only members and watchers may vote.

Please follow the rules on our profile page, vote fairly and do not get sock puppets or your friends to vote for you. Do not ask for votes outside the community. Please leave your votes as a comment to this post. The votes are all screened. All members are encouraged to vote, even those who did not post an entry. Please help our community stay active by reading and voting!

Vote like so:

1st - B. title, author
2nd - A. title, author
3rd - C. title, author

You must use the letter, title, and author when voting. Please use all three; it's much easier to tally that way. My voting system is simple: first place gets 3 points, 2nd place gets 2 points, and 3rd places gets 1 point when added up at the end.

The entries:

A. We'll Be Okay by [livejournal.com profile] gallif_migrant

B. The Virus by [livejournal.com profile] matimae03

C. Like I could run forever by [livejournal.com profile] romanajo123

D. Only Animals by [livejournal.com profile] roseglade

E. Birds Gotta Bird. (Monkeys Gotta Monkey. Silurians...) by [livejournal.com profile] dancingdragon3

Voting will end on Saturday August 19th at 11:59 Central US Time, or until we get enough votes. Winners will be announced the next day and then winning banners will be up some time within the next week. Please vote and leave comments for our authors!

Please, please, PLEASE, find time to vote. It's not required for authors to vote but it's really helpful to all the other participants that DO read and vote to have a fair chance. I know it's not mandatory (and I've been considering changing that) but I really hope that I can have enough faith in you guys for full participation of this contest that means entering (if inspired), reading, commenting and voting. It really helps the community stay alive. Thank you so much!

Well, I didn't intend this, but this week got away from me and I forgot about the "Wrinkle" drabble challenge, so I'm extending it until this coming Monday. You can get your "Wrinkle" drabbles up by July 17th 9 pm US central time.

I will extend out all the upcoming challenges a week too. Thanks!

Well, I logged in today to find that Photobucket has blocked all my images, and I've been using them for over a decade. Sooo.... There will be a short period of time this weekend where I will be finding an alternative place for our banners, promo banners and journal info.

Until then please bear with me. If you need a banner and missed it on one of my posts. Please let me know and I'll get that to you.

Thanks,
Your Mod paynesgrey
