    Default TotW Commentary Thread.

    TotW Commentary Thread


    Creative Workshop Competitions - Check out our sister competitions here on TWC! << Picture of the Week | Tale of the Week | Monthly Writers' Study Competitions | Graphics Workshop Monthly Competition >>


    A commentary thread will be created to provide feedback to contestants, discuss storyboards, offer advice, talk about the upcoming competition, and other TotW talk
    Please join in!

    Rules - PLEASE READ
    • The title and picture are there simply for inspiration, you do not have to use them if you don't want to - besides the keywords everything else is up to you!
    • Each theme will have a number of keywords that have to be used in your submission. They can be used in any way, but please place these words in bold so they can easily be seen by the competition organiser(s).
    • When using the keywords you may change singular nouns into plurals and vice versa; and you may change the tenses of verbs. No other changes are permitted.
    • The submission must have a minimum of 200 words. The title counts towards this minimum, but footnotes, explanatory notes, and other supplementary texts do not. The submission must also have a maximum of 500 words INCLUDING all titles, footnotes etc.
    • The submission must be placed in a spoiler.
    • The submission period will last at least two weeks. If we have three entries after two weeks, voting will begin. The submission period may be extended at the discretion of the competition organiser(s).
    • If you are a contestant you are honour bound to not read other contestants' writings until you have submitted yours.
    • If your entry is found to be substantially similar to another entry your submission will be disqualified. This is at the discretion of the competition organiser(s).
    • Contestants are not allowed to directly advertise their stories or ask for votes. If this is discovered you will be disqualified. Posting "Please vote for my entry in TotW" is NOT allowed. However, posting "Please vote for your favourite entry in TotW" is not only allowed, it is encouraged!
    • This thread is for submissions only. If you have any comments or questions then please post them in the commentary thread.
    • Please note that all rules including word count and key words will be strictly enforced. Rule breakers will be disqualified from the vote.


    AwardsEach winning story will receive 1 Writers' Study Competition point. This point contribute to your total number of points won from other Writers' Study competitions and are accumulated towards the awarding of the Writers' Study Competition Medals.

    • 6 points - bronze medal
    • 12 points - silver medal
    • 24 points - golden medal


    Voting Procedure
    • Each vote thread will have a public poll that lasts 7 days,
    • The results will be visible when the poll has finished.
    • Voting for yourself is allowed.
    • 3-4 submissions - 1 vote per person.
    • 5-7 submissions - 2 votes per person.
    • 8+ submissions - 3 votes per person.
    • When there are multiple votes all of the available ones must be used.
    • If you use more or less than the required amount of votes and do not contact the competition manager before the poll ends to change them your votes will not count.

    Didn't find time to write a story so I guess it will have to be for next week.
    I'll be sure to cast my vote though once the first TotW in 2012 goes to the poll

    Me has question; Weren't the rules agreed at 3 votes if we have more than 7 participants? I think that just 2 votes for 9 submissions is too little.

    EDIT: Also, could you please create a thread with the rules so they'll be easier to review? The full rules as we agreed on?

    I posted the rules we voted on in the first post. I am afraid we missed the how many votes vs remove self voting discussion. It was there but never got finished so i will start a new thread specially for this.

    So, if I want to join, I have to use all the five keywords? Does the writing have to do anything with the quote and the picture?
