Scratch That: Round 1 (7/11/13)

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 25, 2013, 3:46 PM
Facebook l Google+ Group l Our Staff l Rules/F.A.Q.

I have decided, you have until the end of the month.

Rules:



:bulletred:If you did not participate in the Audition round, you can not participate in any other rounds.
:bulletred:Only one submission per contestant, per round.
:bulletred:Submission must be created ONLY for this contest. (You can not submit pre-written pieces.)
:bulletred:Submission can be edited and changed as many times as you like until the deadline.
:bulletred:Submissions for the contest must go into the "Scratch That" folder.
:bulletred:No collaborative pieces. (Fufufufuf, wonder why that's crossed out. I can hear the "OH SHIT"'s and rushes to the theme part.)
:bulletred:No bribing judges.
:bulletred:No flaming/hating/complaining the contest/judges/other entries. (Seriously, everything is set in stone so there will be no changes to deadlines, rules, themes, poetry types, etc.)

Breaking any of these rules will cause you IMMEDIATE disqualification.


Theme and Poetry Type:




Type: Free-verse


Theme: Pair-up and Conquer!

That's right you guys have to pair up with one another (must be someone in S.T.) and write a poem. You guys are going to hate me for this ;-;
You each must write 2 stanzas (or more, just make sure the work is equally shared).

This is about teamwork, working together to make something beautiful.  You guys can write about anything, its your combined choice.

One person must post the completed product and include which stanzas each of you wrote.

NOW HERE'S THE QUESTION

do you guys want us to pair you up or do you want to discuss it amoungst yourselves?


Deadline



30/11/13 (May be altered to give you guys more time, since you know, working together is something that needs time.)

So... what, are you guys refusing to accept my work now? You guys never do anymore... :/ I've had to withdraw like 3 things because it sat there for so long, I just figured they wouldn't be accepted. I have a few things waiting now, hoping maybe someone will come in and accept them. o_o

So... This group is pretty inactive, and if you don't have the patience to wait for 2 people to tick the yes box even though you submitted something only yesterday, then you shouldn't type accusing messages (not to mention these types of messages don't actually help us accept your submission faster).
You also shouldn't over submit, the rules say you're allowed ONE to the featured folder, and 3 to the other folders, which means the 5 peices you submitted yesterday, 2 (?) to the general and 3 (?) to the free verse are breaking the rules. But I ignored that and hit the accept button on all of them because we're inactive.

Now back on the subject of things not getting submitted quickly. I check my deviantart everyday just to accept things for this group even though I don't make this group active, 2 of the other Admins have full-time jobs, 1 of them just graduated high school and the other one is a cat.

Yes, I could make this place run full automatic like every other lazy ass group admin out there but NO, because at the end of the day if I want to put the 2 hours every morning and over $600 every year back into this group I would like to say "Yes, I'm not a lazy ass and yes I actually do care about this group that has been mine for over 7 years."

Now, I know what your thinking "This bitch just told me off." (probably not in those words but still), either way you've stepped into something that you can't win, don't like, leave, realise that you screwed up, stay, either way not my problem. *Prances off into the sunset*

I didn't come here to be 'told off' because that's not really what I was getting at. I realize it's been a bit inactive. You can't really get mad at me, either, because I don't know anything of the admin activity/inactivity, so.. try to see my side of things as well? Also, I am not breaking any rules because I have not over-submitted things. If the basic rule is 3 deviations per folder and 1 featured, then yeah... I haven't broken any rules, because I did exactly what your group would only allow me to do. I am merely an artist trying to get my work out there and noticed, I could not have posted more even if I wanted to. I'm not going to 'run off' because I have nothing to run from. I never typed any 'accusing messages', I was only inquiring about the problem that you've now made me more aware of. How could I have known about the other admins being busy with other things? I'm just someone trying to get their work noticed and was only aware of the inactivity, I had not been aware as to the reason(s) of the inactivity. I hope we have cleared up this misunderstanding by now.

.... You realise I know my own groups rules better then anyone right? And when I say you have broken the rules I mean you have broken the rules, but as I said, let's ignore that fact because inactivity.

As for bring up this problem wouldn't it have been better to note the group instead of publically saying "You guy aren't accepting my work."
Also if you REALLY wanted to have known why it takes us ages to accept pieces wouldn't you have gone, nice and simply, "Why does it take you guys so long to accept stuff?" OR even better you could have read the Rules/F.A.Q. which actually has a section which states:

"Q: Why do my submissions take so long to go into the gallery?
Submissions to this group, unlike most other groups, are accepted by a vote of the admins. This sometimes takes awhile due to us being on and off line at different times."

Maybe for future reference, you should read the Rules and F.A.Q. which would have saved both me AND you the hassle of this unnecessary conversation.

Yes, more or less! I for one have been extremely busy with school and horses so I have been MIA for a bit.
