Yes, I know I'm an hour early, but I'm going to bed! You still have until 1200 am EST (US East Coast time) to post your stories in the competition thread, but I'm putting this up so I don't have to stay awake haha.
This concludes the third Heresy-Online Expeditious Stories Competition!
Congratulations to all of you who participated in this month's competition and making it a success! Turnout has again improved a little bit, which is great! Hopefully in the following months, we can continue to build up interest and maybe bring some more fresh blood to HO's fanfic forums.
Voting works as such:
Each reader (not just writers) can cast three votes, which works quite conveniently as there are only three stories, ranking them 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Feel free to share your thoughts, comments, or brief reviews on the stories as well, since each of the writers worked hard to get their entries up.
Scoring works like this:
1st place: 3 pts
2nd place: 2 pts
3rd place: 1 pt
When you vote, ensure that you vote in the following format:
1st Place: Author, Name of Story, 3 pts
and so on.
Unfortunately, to prevent any possible dramas, you cannot vote for your own story. If you cast any votes, you have to cast all three, no picking a single story and nothing more.
Additionally, if you wrote a story, you must vote! As the competition grows, I think it is necessary to point this out. If you enter but do not vote, any votes for your story(ies) will not be counted.
By the end of the voting period, all votes will be tallied and a winner declared.
Once this winner is declared, the winning story will be placed into the Winning HOES thread
which has been stickied in this forum.
As a reminder, this month's winner will be placed in the next issue of The Heretic
Just to emphasize again, you do not need to have written a story to cast your votes!
The more people that cast their votes, the better!
The deadline for voting will be Sunday, 3 April 2011
. At that time this thread will be completed, the winner declared, and the new HOES topic for Competition 4 will be posted (the topic of which has yet to be decided, so send me your ideas!)
Here are the entries for HOES #3:
Dark Angel - Betrayal
Doelago - Artefact
Stephen_Newman - The Purging of Slis'thrak
C'Tan Chimera - By the Blood of the Wronged
Gothik - Kannada
Mossy Toes - Survivor
Bane_of_Kings - The Tower
Boc - Are You Ready, Brother?
Vulkansnodosaurus - Should be Expected
Shogun Nate - Iron Within
Ckcrawford - Put to Rest
As a reminder, you do not need to have written a story to vote
. Any and all Heretics are more than welcome to check out the stories and cast their votes for their favourites.
Now get voting!
