You know what, never mind. I wouldn’t speak to you like that. Smh? Really?

I’m out before things get serious. Not worth it.

I’ve voted for ones I haven’t nominated. Could be because I didn’t find (not from a lack of trying), or correct me if I’m wrong, but is it possible that something could be written after you’ve nominated already?
Is that an issue, when something is written/posted vs it being nominated in the correct month? There is some overlap, yeah?
Dios mio.
no, you're right

i should wait before nomming till almost the end of the month just for this very reason... but i'm still learning how this place operates

Alright, there is clearly passion attached to the comp. at the end of the day its gonna be up to the host what parameters are set.

on that note, i think there'll have to be parameters. clear parameters


freedoms are fabulous. certainly agree the comp should be open to all  initially , I like the idea of one win per year

wouldn't have a problem with the whole comp being self nominated if the nominee gives us a brief thingy about why


things change, evolve. this comp hit a little blip is all. we'll need to adjust accordingly. that's what the thread is about

very clear parameters allow choices in what we choose to participate in or not. No confusion, people can vote with their feet (Ironically)

of course,  and look, I'm not trying to aggravate a situation. all the comps, even your own have some parameters. some aspects of this comp became open to confusion


I would ask for some patience here. we have a chance to put this comp together again. I'm sure all our inputs will be taken into account. it may not suit everyone. but, come on, everyone is free to start a comp

let's see what the host decides to do.
