EMDAS 2011 - February (Origins!) Voting Thread

Welcome to the February EMDAS Writing Competition!(Rules - READ FIRST!)
Theme: Origin!

"In the beginning was the Word..."
(The Holy Bible, John 1:1-3)
This month's theme is "Origin"! To commemorate the origin and birth of this new competition, write an entry about origin. This can apply to anything like birth, creation, beginnings, etc. The exempt above is a good example, as it refers to the "origin" of the world/life.

Voting! (February 15-24)
After the final entries have been submitted, all non-entrants may read over and vote on their favourite entry. Entrants may not vote, especially with the one vote/person rule in place. Anybody who votes more than once will have all of their votes removed.

There will also be no comments involving attempts to coax the votes in somebody's favour, as making such comments will remove your votes or (should it be an entrant who does so) entry from the competition. We want this to stay fair for everybody.

When voting, please write down the username of the entrant and the title of their entry, like so:

Quote:
Harper Lee: "To Kill a Mockingbird"
Like the entry phase, all votes must be posted before 11:59:59 PM PST of February 24. Any voting after that will be void. (Counter)

Also, if you want to make your votes privately, simply send a private message to my inbox with your votes and they will be added during the tallying phase.

Hmm, wanted to join in as well but couldn't think of anything involving this. But finally decided on who to vote on

The_Seth - Teddy just like Illusore said, this story gives me that emotional vibe while I read towards the ending.

I feel bad nobody voted for lordshadowisle. If it was allowed, I would have voted for him.

Also, Mario I told you this would happen with a theme :P

Yes, as do I. Prohibition of the entrants voting didn't work out too well, from next month on it will be permitted.

And sorry, we had quite a large number of conversations on the production; do you mind detailing what it was you said?

The person who chooses the theme is always favored by it; which is not to say they are guaranteed to win, but in a contest where supposedly "fitting the theme" is part of the requirements and good deal on which some may base their votes (given the difference between entries) the one who chooses the theme always gets a pretty heavy advantage over everyone else. Say someone chooses the theme "collusion," he has no problem with it and it will just come naturally for the idea of what he wants to write, but it may be far harder for you who want to write about Adam and Eve to work with it.

Anyway, this discussion has already been done; if you want the detailed version look at the other thread—I already said I'm not going to debate over it anymore.

So by that line of thinking, you're saying it could cause a dangerous chain reaction; he/she who wins once continues to pick the next theme, ergo giving them an advantage for every competition that follows.

That's an interesting point. I still have a feeling that while that may be somewhat true, it's not a turnabout factor in the voting system. I'll keep this point in mind though; let's see how it works out next month, shall we?

Hey i got 2 votes, thank you Illusore and Hooves.

Anyway congrats on the win papermario, you definately had a very interesting story that deserved the win.

Now as to next months theme it definately sounds like a lot of fun, confliction is much easier to write about and i've already got a few ideas in mind.

Bring on next month!

Congrats papermario! A deserving win indeed~

And the new theme seems interesting, looking forward to what comes out of it! Hopefully the contest will get more attention this time around.
