Thank you, that actually really helps. I understand now why people were hesitant to join.
Yeah, I'll push the date out indefinitely. I'll also change the guidelines to restrict only excessive violence. "No Swearing" was one of RL's original rules, but I understand we have more adult writers. Besides that, I haven' seem much swearing in your contests anyway, so it's chill.
And hey, I wanted to hear your thoughts on something. Planning/Compiling entries seems to be time-intensive for the writers and may be confusing for the participants who haven't done this before. What if instead it ran like a normal thread, but there's a minimum participation of x# of post per week? It would simplify the contest a great deal. What are the downsides to running the contest that way?
