First off - I'm an asshole, and I welcome you to insult me all you want. I deserve it. I got overwhelmed by the contest numbers and frustrated with the how so many judges disappeared (total of 10, only two with full judgments). I also was at a quandary as to what to do with the prizes, since shinji zapped most of them. I'll get him to enable the accounts.


1st place:
Title: Faded Scars
Author: Sasukesrg


2nd place.
Title: Free
Author: Sim Yee (this author didn't provide a username, just a email. but with BK and a few emails I should be able to find it.


3rd place.
Title: Threads in the Night
Author: jerjonji

Poems
Author: Bluesander
Author: shazou

Special thanks to:

I know I was going to do ranking of prizes, but to make up some measure I'll ask shinji to up give everyone accounts and shirts. Prizes should follow shortly as soon as Shinji gets around to it.

I'm sorry guys, I fucked up. You're all great people for not sending any hate mail to this point.

Haha...I just posted at the wall a few months ago expressing my slight disappointment at the turn of events...
But given your humble explanation and unexpected turn of events (such as disappearance of judges), it wasn't fair to put the blame entirely on you...At least you did take up the responsibility on announcing the winners...Most would have disappeared and cared less since they have nothing to lose....
So thanks for announcement despite its sell by date....

At least you did announce the winners after all this while despite the problems that crop up.....
We are human so yeah we get disappointed when things don't go right....
Maybe I am being so kind cause I won....lol....but even if I didn't win and found out that the results were released....I would be happy for those who win....and glad that the results are finally out...Godspeed...

Congrats to the other winners as well.....and hopefully other competitions being held are better organized and more time efficient. Hopefully mistakes are learned....we become better from them....^_^

Congrats! It's a good thing you have finalized the judging and decided the winners. I thought this contest was already dead a few weeks ago. I got disappointed by the amount of time the judges took to finish this (although I know I have no chance of winning).

I want to read the winning pieces..

= ) you guys did great. I'm sorry again. If someone is ever planning on making another writing contest, I'll see if I can get shinji to sponsor again. But I won't be a coordinator again.
Posted 7/11/08
Lo....Dun be so down about it...Things often screw out....You could be a coordinator again....

Using won't is a very strong word....Are you saying that you won't be a leader in any other things you do....?

Anyway, it is all in the past....for me at least....^_^

Teehee!!! After THOUSANDS of YEARS of not being able to be around --------- here I am now!!!

It's okey, Sir Jorl... At least the best part was laid then, & everyone had their frustrations in waiting ended.

& at least everyone did their part in this club... What point was joining in this organization if not for what we wish to acheive?

Experience is a great treasure & though in my part, I know I didn't made it in the end (in the contest), I still feel the essence of being a writer in me...

Congratulations to the winners & may the group continue to live on...
