    Six stories and four additional reservations so far. A bit more than 24 hours before the poll starts. Keep the stories coming, everybody!

    In the upper part of the poll you can see the date and time. I“m assuming your question is for TotW 126 so it“s: This poll will close on February 20, 2012 at 03:08 AM. Cheers!

    Yes, Darkan is correct. By the way, the timestamp for the poll closing time is adjusted to each member's own time zone.

    About 3 more hours before the prisoners are not allowed to dream anymore.

    #128 is a bit more specific after Radzeer's blue sky and barren landscape. Enjoy

    I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading through #127's tales. Some of these were truly fantastically written.

    Heh, I'd rather not say at the moment. The vote still going. Just wanted to say that #127 was one of the best. Took me a while to decide who to vote for.

    I have to agree with that. I kind of was lazy with deciding (sorry to those whose stories I read and didn't vote for because of laziness)

    I have a question, are we aloud to swear in the stories (as long as we don't abuse it)?

    I wrote my first one on the spur of the moment, I certainly chose a tough week of competition that's for sure!

    The general rules of the ToS apply to submitted works too: artistic reasons behind swearing won't work. The software will censor most swearing (and always looks silly in a story), while the rest may trigger moderator action on censor bypass or obscene content.

    Thanks for asking by the way, it was important to note.

    Perhaps it was
    I didn't dwell much on the users of the submissions honestly, just wanted to say I love the majority of the submissions.

    Are words such as "Bastard", "Ass" and "Crap" allowed?

    I mean, the reason I ask this is because both "Bastard" and "Ass" have different meanings, the former meaning illegitimate son and the latter a donkey, and I always figured that's why the censor bypass doesn't apply to them - But they can also be used as swear words.

    I got a suggestion; What about a different competition? Between the winner for about ten weeks? Would that be possible? The ten winning tales in the last ten weeks.

    My take is just to avoid triggering the profanity filter - a big pink smiley hardly adds a lot to your story in all honesty. Just be sensible about it I guess - the staff are all reasonable people

    Suggestion noted. From time to time we might try to do different stuff to spice things up a little bit in different ways

    If you guys do do that, and I think it's a fantastic idea, do it in addition to the week's submissions. And perhaps give it a whole new, different set of rules? Just a suggestion; But since it is supposed to be the "Winners vs. Winners", it should be more challenging... And thus maybe no inspirational picture or quotes but with about 10 mandatory words? And make it around two weeks in length for submissions?
