Could we possibly give out a little award as a small consideration for those taking the time to vote in this competition? I know it's a little thing and a bit premature to be saying in such early stages of this planning but I figured it was something to spare a quick thought to. Alright, the word count will probably be on the lean side to accommodate readers, but it still takes more time and effort to judge a contest like this and I think a little token of appreciation wouldn't go amiss.

Mhm. Already working on that. I think that's a fair thing to do anyway. Bit too early to say what the reward will be, obviously. Working on some rough drafts, though.

Same goes for entrant and winner rewards.

I'm interested, but sadly I'm working (And not writing work) for this month, but hopefully I'll be able to participate next time.

The biggest problem I can see at this point is probably getting a good amount of voters. Apart from those entering and maybe one or two others, I don't think most members will be interested in reading several pieces. I don't really have any bright ideas to incentivise people to vote to be honest, but I suppose some sort of prize thing is a good place to start

Yep, it's obviously also encouraged for the people that do write but don't enter a certain month to cast their votes.

When do you guys want this to start? ASAP or would you rather it starts at the first of August or September for example? I don't think the actual date matters, as long as there's clear guidelines on when the due date is.

I wouldn't complain if it started ASAP. I think people are all looking forward to it, so it makes sense to roll with that enthusiasm before people forget about it again.

But if people would prefer to wait then that's no issue either.

Depending on the theme or if my imagination is stimulated then I might have a crack at writing something, even if it isn't good enough to enter.

I think if you're all ready, go ahead and start it now, if you need more time, then start it August first

I don't see why this couldn't be started right away. Unless there are some objections to that.

I doubt there is. :)

Good news and bad news. The good news is I'll be launching this competition upcoming Saturday. The bad news is... I have to haul arse to get all the guidelines and rules set up for the new subforum before then!

Fear not, we can do this! :D
