It should probably stay 26th as listed. It's all Lewis' fault, he started speaking in German and not mentioning dates ;)

I demand an extension! This deadline is like the week before finals & due dates. Either that, or I might have to reuse an old review and hope no one notices.

Just let me know when we're reading to start reading and judging.

You are? I thought you said you were busy with final stuff, too, next week...

Because May 1st would be hella better for me, anyway. Since I still have two papers and some other things to worry about...

Lewis, what's your verdict on this? As it stands now, I really don't think I'll be able to finish my review by the deadline, as I haven't even started it, and my mound of schoolwork is currently taking priority.

So if you keep the deadline the same (Me and Dagoss are only two people, after all), you probably won't see it from me, though I may try as a last ditch effort depending on how much progress I've made with my paper by the end of tomorrow. However, even if I don't make this, I still plan to write the review, so you should still have the pleasure (or displeasure if it turns out bad, lol) of reading it.

I can say for sure at this point that without an extension I'll be a no-show as well. I had several ideas for this comp but none of them materialized, and I'm working on several other reviews right now that don't fit the guidelines here. Given another week I might be able to come up with something, but as it stands, I've got nothing.

Extensions are nothing more than rewards for laziness.

Two term papers, five finals, and study abroad to worry about. Yeah, real fucking lazy.

Non-extensions would be a repression of the creative outburst that would've occurred if you extended the deadline. Or something.

Just one point of clarity--I'm running low on time, because I actually procrastinated some of this with work(go figure, it was interesting too) but think I can get it done. When's the latest it can be submitted? 12 PM Pacific on the 26th? Or earlier than then?

Don't worry, WQ, it's aimed at me. Notice he didn't actually say anything until I chimed in.

It's more aimed at the fact that every tourney we've run this year has had to have two month plus deadlines. I made mention of this right at the start of the topic.

But if you need it to feel better, sure. It's all about you. You lazy arse.

In the absence of any official decision, I'm saying that I personally don't care if there's an extension or not, but my portion of the verdict will be extended by a like amount (for karmic balance). So if you need two extra weeks, it'll be two weeks before I finish judging.

Thanks

I'm happy to extend. Mainly since there's been, like, what, one or two submissions?

Chalk it up to creative bankruptcy. Basically, you're welcome to extend the deadline, but my ability to participate will depend on my capacity to come up with something interesting to talk about. And since I'm a boring fool I can't guarantee anything.

P.S.: I'm playing up the laziness for comedic effect.

My piece is ready, I just wasn't gonna submit 'til the deadline. So if you're moving the deadline, you'll see it then.

Don't extend it too much, because that just waters things down period, and the people who turned it in on time lose interest.

But if other people would like a few days too, great. I have something serviceable but I think the time to proofread it would be nice. Hopefully others can speak up to say "almost done" or "need extra time" or estimate how much has been done. This competition sparked some other stuff I wanted to try, so I definitely want to give a shot.

Well, I managed to submit something a minute or two ago. It's the fan fiction for Deathlord entitled Even Deathlords Get the Blues.

If it's accepted, that is. Of course, if it is not accepted, the only reason could be because it is so unimaginably pretentious that nobody could hope to match it, and you would have to give me the victory based on my writing's pretentiousness alone.

I work 3 jobs and I go to grad school (and I tutor English!). I balk at the very idea of calling me lazy -- !
