I'll enter this competition with my Metal Slug 3 review at the very least, and at the very best I will submit something else for this event.


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

When seems reasonable as a deadline? Late April?

I'm fine with whatever deadline you choose. Nothing is really better or worse for me.

I'm gonna be out of action for a couple of days at the start of May. So either before or after that is ideal.

Let's try to avoid yet another huge multi-month deadline on this one. That's a trend I'd like to break as soon as.

How's Sunday 26th April for people? That allows everyone a nice weekend to finish it all.

Aweesome! That'll be fun. Two huge term papers and finals to worry about right around there. This'll be the challange of a lifetime. =D

Haha. Compared to you, though, I suppose it's nothing. >_>

And you double-posted btw. Haha.

I'd like to call contest after this, if no-one has any objections. I have an idea for a fun one.

Can we write a piece of fiction? What I am thinking of would fit that.

Also, I have two potential ideas. Can a person enter two pieces, or do we have to stick with one?

This might not be a relevant question, because I probably won't have the time, but just in case, I want to ask and make sure.

A piece of fiction? I doubt it. It still has to be a legitimate article.

I'm not Lewis, but I would imagine it's one piece allowed per person. Though I'm sure if you wrote two and asked the judges (including myself) we could reccomend which piece to enter.

It depends whether the fiction serves another purpose. Are you making a point about videogame narratives, for example? If so, it could fit. If not, then probably not.

One piece per person.

Sounds good. Thanks for the clarification. Actually, when I woke up this morning, I sat down and figured out which I liked better, and the choice was clear. I think it'll work, but even if it doesn't, I should have fun.

So the other will get rehashed as just plain old fiction.

I might actually have the choice of three things I could sub to this. I've one all written out ready and I plan to do a second in tanduem with someone else as it seems a clever way to help resolve a bickering fight.

Maybe I'll make ghostly alts so you have to judge all three. Beware of PmE.

In a way, I'm almost tempted to say, actually, fuck it, submit as many pieces as you want...

Yeah, it wouldn't actually affect scoring, now that I think about it.

Exquisite.

Everyone still on course for Freitag deadline, or do we need a little longer?

Are you saying the deadline is Friday, the 24th? The earlier post says April 26 (Sunday).

I'm fine with Friday, but I want to know if that is the deadline.
