Issues Contest #2 - FINALISTS ANNOUNCED!

Postby Reploid Productions » Sat Dec 10, 2011 11:08 pm

No joke, it's taken me entirely too damn long, but I've finally gotten the over 70 contest entries narrowed down to the best of the best, those who's entries are sufficiently original, witty, properly formatted and well-edited enough for a shot at the prize! We might even have winners announced before the end of the year, so I'll be able to barely claim that it didn't in fact take an ENTIRE YEAR to get this done!

Without further ado, your finalists are:
  • Burchadinger
  • Windica
  • Dustistan
  • Lord Grey II
  • Sanctaria
  • Rustika
  • Nation of Quebec
  • Lenyo
  • Maurepas

These nine extremely patient and talented folks are now up for review by the rest of the moderator team. Remember, the goal is to find people capable of editing issues, not to narrow the list down to X number of winners. Most likely at least one will make it to Issue Editor, but it's just as possible that all nine could make the cut. The way it's set up is that each of the moderators can vote on as many of the finalists as they want. Any finalist that reaches a specified threshold of votes in favor will be offered the Issue Editor position and will be promoted as soon as they confirm it.

Winners will be announced in this thread as they are determined through the voting in the sekrit mod lair! Congratulations to all of our finalists, and thanks to everybody that participated! I promise the next contest will be faster and better run than this one ended up being, thanks to the lessons learned bumbling my way through this one! ;)

Never thought I would make it this far. Congrats to the other finalists and good luck.

I hope that there are more contest winners then less.

Wow, that's amazing. Congrats to all the finalists. Any rough idea how long it will take for the mods to decide who become editors? And when the next contest will be?

May be some tonight, others may take a few days. Won't take more than a week, I think.

Congratulations to the finalists, hopefully there are several winners and that backlog can move along so I can continue to fill it up with issues I send in.

Alright, that is showing some promise. Two editors is much better than one. Congratulations!

How would you react if I actually began periodically delivering pastries to you in RL?
