To give a sneak preview of what is to come in the last months of 2020:

In October there will be a new RPGC writing contest and even though the last art contest didn't go very well, I'm going to host a new one. Maybe this one will go better.

In November there will be no contest on the site as it is NaNoWriMo.

At the beginning of December there will be a microfiction and poetry contest again, keeping the rest of December free for the holidays.

And we'll start the new year big with both an RPGC and an Art contest.

So keep an eye on the sidebar and the Writing Contest and Gallery subforums :)

@PPQ Purple December 7th. I initially announced December 1st in my status but I'm pushing it back one week so I can use the sidebar for the voting round of the current art contest.

December 7th a microfiction and poetry contest will start, in which you have to write something between 5 and 500 words.

January 1st we'll start the new year with a new RPGC, the writing contest in which you have to write a story between 500 and 5000 words.

I have a question about the theme. When you say "wish" does this refer merely to the strict usage of the word as in a particular wish like wishing upon a star or a genie? Or can it also be interpreted in the more broader sense of a deep desire, goal, dream etc?

@PPQ Purple It can be taken as broad as you want. As long as it's clear your entry is in some way related to a wish or wishing it will be a valid entry.

Been a bit since there's been any real discussion in here huh?

I hadn't mentioned anything about the new point system. Now that I've seen it in action, I'd like to comment on it.

I think it's great, really. It makes you feel like you accomplished something regardless of how many votes you get. To increase the variety of the entries, you could also create a list of say, ten extra elements and only award points for using up to a certain number of them. The idea is that you can grab extra points from extras, but because not everyone is using the same three their posts will be a lot different.

The point system also allows for a lot of crazy contest combinations. There's been some debate in the past if we should have judges or votes, but now you can have both. Judges can award points to each entry based on how good they thought it was and voters can still drop by to award 2-3 points to one entry or another.

What I'm getting at is I think points are the future, @Calle

I am thinking about incorporating a point system in RPGC as well, but the one I used for the RP contest may not work. RPGC has always been about "here is the prompt, take it to the far regions of your imagination and show us what you did with it", and if I have themes that will earn points, people will try to get as many points as they can instead of writing that story.

So this month's RPGC is as we always did it, but I am keeping the points in mind and figure out how it would work for RPGC and other contests.
