Forum:Update on "The Article Whisperer" competition
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Some of you might remember my suggesting a new writing competition awhile ago. I've been working on it off and on for the past few months and I think its finally ready to start in a week or two. The main thing that's holding things up is the lack of judges for the competition. There are currently 5 judges signed up (Group 1: User:Mordillo, User:Under user and User:Optimuschris; Group 2: User:PuppyOnTheRadio, User:CheddarBBQ and ?) but at least 4 judges short. Ideally, there would be five groups of three judges for each category. The contest could be run with only two or three groups if they were willing to judge more then one category but I'd like to try and avoid this since its makes for a heavy workload. Again, I'd appreciate any and all help for anyone who can spare some time for the competition. Thanks for your time everyone.

P.S. I've started a list of judges here.
- I think it's pretty clear I'm a terrible judge (fuck you to Ape) so I'd rather compete if it's all the same to you. ~ Avast Matey!!! Happytimes are here!* (talk) (stalk) Π ~ ~ 24 Sep 2010 ~ 03:57 (UTC)
- I'd be happy to fill one of the judging spots. Go ahead and put me down for whatever's needed. - 04:05, September 24, 2010 (UTC)
- This is the first that I've heard about this competition. Looks like a great idea. I'd like to help out but I also want to enter. So if it is possible for me to judge a category and enter another category (or two) I'd like to do that. Or if there is any other way I can help just let me know. -- 04:19, September 24, 2010 (UTC)
- I've already gone and signed myself up if that's fine with you. -- 17:16, September 24, 2010 (UTC)
After a bit of reorganizing, the competition now needs only
3 1 judge for Miscellaneous-related Articles. This category is for entries which fall outside "General Knowledge" and "Popular Culture" topics as well as Alternate-namespace articles (HowTo, UnBooks, Why?, etc.). The competition is scheduled to start on September 27, although the actual judging period will be from October 4 to October 10. Thanks to the above editors who have already signed up as judges.

Is there any chance...
...the time to write an article could be extended? I mean, PLS gives you two weeks, why can't this? I say this because I'd really love to enter this, but I don't know if I'll have the time to do much of anything but school work this week. (Also, if the time can't be extended that's totally fine--I'm just curious more than anything.) —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 22:48, September 27, 2010 (UTC)
