So basically, make it more simpler and just judge it altogether through a 1-5 scale? And then, leave a review of the piece. Hm~ That's interesting. =3 Although, it won't be as accurate compared to the other version with factors, it'll be easier. I'll keep it in mind. ^^ Thanks for the input, Natus. Anything else you'd like to state your opinion on? =3

Opinion? Yes.

Macarons are delicious. Cardboard boxes are great. Acchan and Takamina need to just get f##king married already, or at least go to a sauna together if you know what I mean

In all seriousness, I'm sure any method will turn out fine~

Lol. XD You and your randomness~

1) I don't know what that is, so I'll just nod my head and pretend that I know what it is you're referring to.

2) Agreed! Just look at the awesome shape and material foundation! 8D

3) Again, I'll pretend like I know who those two are and nod my head like I'm the boss. Xd

I see... =3 Hm... Well, your proposition just put a third option on, so let's see how this turns out once we actually get the submissions. =P

You mean the idea of reasoning out why the judges gave that amount of points, say: § out of five

the overall story was ...
the character developement and reasoning was ...

etc. right?

*nods* That's exactly what I had in mind when Natus brought it up. Nanoha and I were also thinking of an overall review like you receive in FF. You know, a positive criticism just to motivate them. Every author wants to receive some, right? =3 I mean, we're taking their stories and they can't post it for a while, so the least we could do is give them a set of reviews. Most likely from 4, maybe 5 people.

From what I gather, -and I literally mean it in that sense- the rules should be laid forth as such. I'll be sending the guide to every admin who're serving as judges later on. I'll most likely set this up as a word document...:

1) Number the quality of each section such as plot, characters, etc. (whatever was on the list I put in the previous posts) on a 1-10 scale. 1 being the lowest, and 10 being the highest.

2) Leave a response for each section, explaining WHY you chose to score the piece as such.

3) Leave an overall positive criticism of the piece. Sort of like a review.

What say you, Sha-san~? =3 And all you other members out there actually reading this. X3

O.o I noticed the update in your post with the list of participants.
I know I mentioned that I want to participate, but I've been a bit busy lately, so I can't guarantee that I will submit something. So I don't know if I should qualify under "Writers Participating", considering there's actually a list of "Writers Considering Participating". I'm not sure if that's important, I just thought I'd let you know anyways. But, I'll definitely try my best to submit something.

Ah, I see. =3 It's alright, really. Personally, I would prefer it if everyone took priorities of stuff that actually matter, since this is more like a fun project for the good boys and girls who don't procrastinate on things like work and school, and stuff, in general, really... XD So, yes, I understand, and will put your name in the "Considering" section. =3 Please do your best, then, and thanks for letting me know. ^^ It helps to keep things organized~ Xd

Does this mean I've been disqualified?

EH?! :O Lol. Nice echoing effect there, dude. X3 Very nicely emphasized. *nods earnestly* Well~ Considering that there're no formal regulations on writers' qualification traits, I say you're good? =3 *shrugs* Maybe...? XD Lol.

Hey there, Kail-san! How are you?

I'm Silber-1 and I'm new here and I'd like to sign up for your contest. As a matter of fact, I started quite a while ago, since I was asked by Caelion to co-write a story with him/her and Yui-san. In fact, just earlier today, we finished the story.

So, I just wanted to make it official. :3

I look forward to participating in this forum. ^o^

I hope you and your fellow admins enjoy our story! :D

I taught you how to fly. The rest is up to you.

Er... Hello? =3 I'm fine. A Pleasure to meet you. May I address you as Silber? Or... Better yet, how about "Sil"? ^^

Oh. :O Cool. Hehe~ Welcome to the group, then! *grins* I'm guessing your's is the one that Nanoha was talking about, then. I haven't check it yet, but I will later on for sure! I'm pretty excited to read it, too. I wasn't expecting any submissions until the actual due date. XP Congrats on finishing it, and thank you guys for taking part in the contest! =3

It's official! XD *claps*

I'm sure we will. ;3 Again, thanks for joining and participating~ ^^

Hey there, Kail-san!

Heh, sorry 'bout being quiet these days. I'm just sort of...quite...Ok, I'm really lazy and forgot to check up on this forum for replies. LOL I just did. :3

Oh, Nanoha-san has been talking about me?
...
She's not planning to b-b-be-befr-friend me, right?! (Crawls into an underground bunker)

LOL

I hope you enjoy reading our story, Kail-san! :D

And I was wondering if, perhaps, I could post my other "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha" stories on this site? I'd just like to expand my horizons and try other places, and show my love for the series here. (Bows)

I taught you how to fly. The rest is up to you.

Eh... Lol. No worries, I get lazy from time to time, too. It's natural~ Xd

Yeah... I think so? ^^" Was it your team that sent her a copy of your story or was that someone else completely? Maybe I was mistaken... *shrugs* I'm not sure anymore. She hasn't reported back for a while now. Probably too busy. However~ Here's a piece of advice: If you want Nanoha-san to befriend you, just say so. She's really friendly. =3

Lol. I can't tell if you're shy or just completely out there like everyone else on this site. *ahem* Me... XP

Oh, I enjoyed it. *nods* It was different and stuck out a lot. Haha. Sorry, that's all I can tell you for now. ^^" Anything more, and I'll be going against my own rules. ~.~

... Er... Wait, what? : O On this site? As in the nanofate.us site? You don't have to ask me, just do it. XD This place has a specific forum for fanfiction where people can post their own stuff in separate threads. As long as it's Nanoha related, anyways. Here: http://nanofate.us/forums/fanfiction-forum

And, lastly~ I think you've got the wrong impression of me. ^^" I'm a plain member here. So, when you want to ask something like 'Can I do this?' or 'Is this allowed?', you should ask someone who's more up there. Xd Examples: Haru, otherwise known as A. for admin. There're Alicia Testarossa, Divine Vengeance, and... other people. You can find them in chat more often than not, too. =3

I suddenly had more yuri ideas that I wanted to write about so I decided to do one for this competition and contribute the rest later.

Yes, I have joined the community.

Hopefully I'm not too late, it's still 16 Nov from where I'm from ^^;

I can't find your email to attach the document to, guess I'll have to use FF.net's 8k char limit.

Quick question...how exactly would I submit the finished story? I suddenly began thinking about it as I get to the halfway point and then once finished, the question came up.

Edit: Just finished it. Although I'd say mad dash to do so is more like it. Either way...trying to find a way to PM but no luck.

I deactivated the PM functionality for regular users in the site because there are bots registering accounts and using them to send spam to real users through the PM system. We don't want that because that makes the mail providers think that our site is sending the spam, and as a result they may start blocking all our mails (or sending everything to the spam folder by default).

PMs, e-mails. Same thing. They're just a method of communication. What we call them does not matter, but how we use them that really counts. See? XD Lol.

Yes, it is. I meant that my alias was not added to the 'writers particpating' section on the first post.
