Default Fluff Writing Competition [RESULTS]

It was great to see and read so many different stories from you all. I had a good time marking all of them and it was very hard for me to come to my decisions, a sentiment echoed by all of the judges.

Well anyway, the results and scores out of 40 are as follows!

1st - Wargamer, 34/40 - 1st Place Winners Seal and 10 Competition Points
2nd - Tau-Killer, 33/40 - 2nd Place Winners Seal and 6 Competition Points
3rd - Colonel Sanders, 32/40, 3rd Place Winners Seal and 4 Competition Points
4th - Top Bananna, 31/40, 2 Competition Points
5th - Ulstadt Solvek 7th Rider, 30.5/40
6th - 40KEthusiast, 29.5/40
7th - BobTD, 29/40
8th - Brother Nagrom, 26.5/40
9th - Shas'o Geeky Gator, 26/40

Well done to all entrants, it's almost a shame to have to put rankings on the entries because I honestly enjoyed reading each one and appreciate the work and though that would have gone into all of the entries. So everyone deserves a pat on the back, spiffing.

All of the entries will be up for viewing too, so feel free to check them out!

Cheers,

--42

Well met, Tau-Killer and Topbanana.

Very close entries all, no big gaping differences in point scores.

Only 8 points between Wargamer and me. Which is either complimenting me, or insulting Wargamer ^-^.

I kinda half expected my score, though, since I went with a fairly... expiremental... style, mainly since I knew I couldn't beat anyone head-to-head.

Congrats to the top 4.

I was wondering, would it be possible to get some critic of my story? thanks.

I think I failed to do as well correcting the grammar as I could have before submitting my story. Oh well.. I dont do a terrible amount of writing to feel bad about not being good at it right now.

also, where will the entries be, when they are put up for viewing?

Wow, I didn't expect to do that well, and I certainly didn't expect to be seperated from Wargamer by only 3 points.

Congratulations to everyone, and I look forward to reading all the entries when they go up.

If you post it up in Fluff/Stories, you should be able to get some good critique of your story.

Shway. I think I'll take the Karma as usual, and if someone can send my gold badge so I can update my collection I'd appreciate it.

Oh, and better luck next time, Tau-Killer... you weren't far off me! ;D
