FNF in Question

Hey Folks, It is two days away from the new deadline for FNF and I have exactly 5 entrants out of the 20 that I need to run this contest. Now I am will to give another deadline extension of up to two weeks if it is needed however I will only do so if I have 15 people who have not yet sent me in an entry, tell me in the comments below that they are working on it and need more time. If I get 15 commitments I will give this one last deadline extension, otherwise this contest is dead, and I will not attempt to run another FNF in the future.

  1. I’ve noticed that participation in a lot of events and such on the blog has gone down, ever since the blog posts were moved onto their own section separate from the main page. I remember there used to be posts on this blog that would sometimes get over 100 comments, but nowadays there are blog features getting abandoned due to a near-complete lack of activity. Even when the blog features get revived, they quickly get re-abandoned, as with Open Critique day, which came back for about two weeks and then went away again.

    Perhaps if the blog section of the Heromachine website were moved back onto the main page, there would be more entrants.

  2. That is an excellent observation, Jadebrain. After I read it, I immediately went in and changed the front page to again feature the blog posts. I did add a sticky post to the top with the link to try HeroMachine since I’ve heard from others that when they come to the main site they’re not sure what to do. Let’s see if this setup is better for participation.

  3. Come on guys this is Monsters! This is your Forte! (and my Pianissimo!) And I still beat the first deadline! You CAN do this!

  4. I would love to enter, just busy the past few weeks but if there was another extension I can try and enter.

  5. I’m working on my set – been busy recently

    Will try to get it done by today, though

  6. Don’t keep the monsters in your heads, folks; even if you have multiples. Let them out into the FNF corral to duke it out. Better the damage be done there than to your brainpan, right? Take it from someone who kno has heard stories about that!

  7. Hopefully we’ll get the fifteen entries. But if not, how about putting the ones we do have in a weekly poll? It’s less exciting without elimination, but can be done with as few as five. Perhaps the votes from each round could be totaled together to determine an overall winner.

  8. @Calvary_Red There is a plan in place so those who have entered do not feel like the work they did was a waste. It will not be FNF, but the entres I have by noon my time tomorrow (unless I get 20 by tomorrow, or a commitment by 15 people and thus granting an extension ) Will have their own contest and Jeff has agreed to still do the prize.

  9. I am working on mine and would appreciate an extension.

  10. headlessgeneral

    I’m working on mine too, if you wanted to add an extension.

  11. 4 down, 1 to go

  12. Count me in … adding the finishing touches

  13. All done and sent

  14. Ok, Been thinking about this all day, and I really shouldn’t do this as I did not get the commitment to it that I asked for, however I will give one last extension. But since I did not get the commitment of 15 people I am only extending it to next Thursday at 7 am Eastern Time. At the point I will either be running FNF or a Special Contest for those that did enter the next day ( friday )

  15. Maybe repost the original ruleset – incase anyone who didn’t see it before want to enter now
