Due to the author wishing it, The Vegetarian Serial Killer has been taken out of the poll (but will still review the winner of course).
As a note for future happenings: Don't detract your piece in the middle of voting, please. Because people will most likely have voted for you by then. That just makes their votes completely wasted. And if you do not care to win you can give the reviews away to someone else.
I hope this will not happen again. I can't control your free will of course but please be mindful of your fellow participants. I can't see who votes for what, and therefore I can't give a vote back.
Carry on.4/11/2009 #181
Sorry for taking so long, will post the results shortly!4/14/2009 #182
AND THE WINNER OF WCC APRIL IS...
We have a tie, folks!
The tie is between Withered Beauty by Carus, and Dandelion by DeeFective.
We haven't had a tie before, so I will explain what will happen.
First, I will document the results as I always do in a following post. When I am done with that, I will make a new poll. This new poll only has the choice between Carus and DeeFective. Only one can win in WCC after all.
It will be a blind poll, and it will last two days. That it will last two days does not mean your review period will be shortened. I will just set the deadline two days later than usual.
So please re-read the pieces if you are unsure which is your favorite. If you are already dead-certain, then just hang on 'til I get the new poll.
((Any questions just ask, unless the answers are already painfully obvious))4/14/2009 #183
I just wish to remind everyone: you are fully allowed to review other participants aside from the winner's review. The MINIMUM however is to review the winner with one depth review.
In Carus' case, she gave the liberty for the participants to choose "anyone who has submitted a piece for WCC April". As she herself submitted a piece, a review for one of her stories/poems will be seen as legit as well.
You will have til the 30th to review the winner.
Participants that are expected to review the winner:
DeeFective - DONE
vinny2 - DONE
Royal Bliss - DONE
outspoken-ryn - DONE
Denizen47 - DONE
Mazkeraide - DONE

-totallyred- - TEMPORARILY BANNED
The Vegetarian Serial Killer - DONE
eyerene - DONE
VelvetyCheerio - DONE
When you have reviewed in accordance to the review requirements, I will check you off the list. PM me what piece you reviewed (and if it has several chapters - what chapter). Don't just say "I reviewed", because I need to check the validity of your review before you're checked off.
In this special case, if you reviewed someone other than Carus, please PM me both username and piece title. Thank you.
Winner, please PM me what you would like the next WCC prompt to be like. It must be delivered before the 28th.

Awesomesauce Karas, I knew you'd win one day :D *not lying*
Frac knows these things, hun.4/16/2009 #189
REGARDING THE PRIZE REVIEWS -
As Carus gave the option of reviewing another active participant than herself, PM me what author you reviewed, as well as piece title, if you did not review Carus.
As Carus was an active participant, she is of course eligible (under her own criteria) to be reviewed.
Don't forget: We are dealing with Depth review requirements. Read about them in the first post.
You have til the 30th to review, due to tie time delay.
I think that was it, yeah. :)
Thanks to all who not only voted in the first poll, but also in the second! It's good so many cares. We also broke a voting record with the first poll - go us, yay team!
Also, I hope first time WCCers have had a nice experience - hope to see you guys again! "Old timers", as always, come back next time, eh? :p
Over and out.4/16/2009 #190
Well done to you too, Dee!! :D
And thanks :)4/16/2009 . Edited 4/16/2009 #192
5 DAYS LEFT TIL DEADLINE.4/25/2009 #193
2 DAYS LEFT.
I also want everyone to check if they are on the list, if they have reviewed. If I did not get your PM or I lost it and you are thus not on the list, please PM me again or post here.
You can also only request an extension before the deadline is met, not after. Afterward, you are banned.4/28/2009 #194
22 HOURS LEFT.
Give or take 30 min.
If you believe you cannot give the review before the deadline, please request an extension. Having an extension means you get one more week to review, but you cannot participate on the forum til the review is done.4/30/2009 #195
OMG I cant believe it was tie this time! I must say the quality of the owrk has really gone up! By the end of the year we'll be supah-starz!!!4/30/2009 #196

I'm excited for May's WCC, how about you guys?
I'm going to try my hand at 2nd POV just for kicks... :P4/30/2009 #202
Mod note: Because it is very "late" for me and I want to sleep, I figure that letting you guys get the prompt 2 hours earlier is better than you having it 10 hours late. Besides, this should almost even out my previous belatedness concerning the prompt giving. If you find this a very bad idea, please tell so in Problems/Questions.4/30/2009 #203
WRITING CHALLENGE CONTEST
I hear many people are cramming with work this time of year, and what we all need during such a difficult time is a valid reason to procrastinate. Well...you're looking at it.
Prompt: "I'm dying of thirst in the middle of the ocean."
Quote by the band Styx (song - man in the wilderness).
As songs are easy to find as one piece through the intrawebs, I suggest that you only focus on the prompt and only after you have submitted your entry read the entire set of lyrics/listen to the song, so as to not get your original ideas altered. But do as you wish.
Remember, even though there must be a connection between your submitted piece and the prompt, you need not make "obvious" connections. The prompt is meant to inspire.
Registrations and submissions have now started! Edit in the link to your piece in your registration post once it has been created. You can register and submit your work until the end of the 7th of May. Remember, one piece per person! We accept both poetry and stories.
If you have any preference on what you want reviewed if you win, write that into your registration post.
It is okay to promote voting through author note or your profile.
If you have any questions, ask at Problems/Questions.
If you find bumps on your way, you can go to Help with your writing and get help there.
Otherwise, Resources for Writing has some nifty links to help you along with uncertain areas.
Good luck everyone!4/30/2009 #204
I register for WCC May and promise to review the winner etc etc! :p

Edit: If I win, I'd like to give away the reviews again to anyone who submitted an entry.4/30/2009 . Edited 5/10/2009 #205
