No Monthly Contest For April

Post by Kenwood on Wed Mar 31, 2010 10:16 pm

From the main page:

Despite an update to contrary, I've decided there will be no flash contest this month. No, this isn't an early April Fool's joke (it'd be a bad one if it were). The reason is simple: No time.

That seems to be a running theme lately, which, as I've mentioned before, is the current reason issue #2 is late. Today, for instance, was a day off for me and it was spent sucking up water from my flooded basement. Tomorrow will be much the same.

So no contest this month. We hope you understand. It'll return on May 1. And, hopefully, in the meantime I will find the time to finally finish our second issue.

Also, in more positive news, you can now purchase issue #1 from Barnes & Noble.
Sorry, guys. =(

No worries Ken.

Many of us are busy this next month. I look forward to the May prompts.

BTW I like the ticker!

You're a tool.

On an unrelated note, no problem with the delays. Smile

I think a lot of people are secretly relieved. Everybody went to a lot of work last month. And I'm so proud of everybody! Cookies and shenanigans at my place!

I'll echo everyone else. This would have been due at the same time as three other things, so a breather is nice.

Looking forward to May!

Ken, just a thought. Maybe for the next contest, we could have a little more time for the votes/critiques? This way, everyone could vote/crit on each piece without feeling as rushed.

The problem with that is time. If we gave more time to read/vote/crit, it would overlap with the start of a new contest.

What we'd discussed before is doing the contest every two months. But it seemed like most people would rather have had it monthly. Personally, I'd like to do it bi-monthly.

Not that my opinion means anything other than the words I type, but I would rather have it every two months.

Well, it's not a contest for us, so your opinion matters much more. I think we shall put it to a vote.

Oh wow..my life just got less complicated. Except I still have a to do a ton of things yet...

My vote would go towards a bi-monthly contest, but perhaps having a monthly prompt. Just to keep those creative juices flowing in the off time. Haha, off time, what the HELL am I thinking? Er, I mean..I like the monthly prompts, but bi-monthly would give me more time. Yeah. Sorry for the ramble.

YAY! I couldn't play this month because we're decorating (groan), so this is very good news for me.

Oh, and I'd prefer bi-monthly too.

Well, probably no need for a vote then. Our flash contest swings both ways!

Looks like it may be going bi on its own Ken. Either way works for me. It's great incentive. Good luck with the water problems over there.

As the new kid in town, I will of course abide by the wishes of the others. I am very much looking forward to participating in this, and if it becomes a bi-monthly thing then that is fine. I am looking forward to May!

Bi-monthly sounds great! I'm just so glad Shock Totem is doing the contests at all to be honest. Looking forward to May then.

I didn't even attempt the last one, so I'm on board with bi-monthly.

So that works out perfectly then. If we'd started bi-monthly, May would be the third contest. It would make December the last of the year, but we'll skip December since it's the holidays and just start again on Jan 1. Sweet!

I'm afraid we'll have to have just one Shock Totem Battle Royale, though. Probably in November. Otherwise it wouldn't be a very exciting fight.

Would those of you who've won be upset if you had to wait until December?
