Firstly I apologise for the unannounced hiatus.
Secondly - how can I keep this place active? Do people want this to stay active?
Part of the reason why I was so keen on fortnightly/weekly rounds is that they match up well making it easy to rotate and it's easy to switch and change prompts if they don't work.
I was thinking it might be easier if the rules changed so that,
Oneshot is greater than 500 words and has the entire month.
Drabble is less than 500 words and has a fortnight, no minimum word limit.
- more than one entry can be submitted but only one can be placed.
- new prompts are selected by voting; when you vote to select the winner you also pick the prompts for the next round from an available list.
There's also the fact that a lot of us write for blind_go
and might not have the time to enter something small to the side during those periods... But then again there are people who /don't/ enter those things and would like to have something to do instead.
What would be easier during those periods? I was thinking that a prompt fest might work, only the last time, failed rather spectacularly...
Would it help if it was something completely different? Such as oh... a poetry round? Something like iypoems
What are your ideas?
Lastly, I've appointed a new moderator, draffyn
they will be posting up a voting post quite soon and the new prompts.
