It was not just a simple "fire under some of the people". It was more like jumping around the room being like "yeah, I made it, all you other guys suck at this - and I'm allowed to call you out". The follow up posts went a bit further down the drain, and this resulted in a 24 hour penalty
(I think in some sports this is called "bad sportsmanship").
Even though the posts are now edited (not by me, I'd make that clear!), I still have screenshots. I guess in the future, I'll quote what has been said and then
address the warning. I'm new to this after all.
Other than that - this particular competition won't be canceled because nobody joined. It's a test run - this is why I said "feedback needed
" (especially in the Songwriting General Gossip Thread
I know that there are time constraints for people (I understand your problem, FixInTheMix). You just can't join everything (this is where your personal time management comes in, another learning process). But this is why I made this competition longer than the currently existing ones - in fact, the still missing two ones will have different time frames as well.
Maybe it's this month's theme, maybe it's the genre. Although - this month it is "free to choose". I don't know. No feedback, no way for me to know.
Let's leave it at that.
Including today, still 5 days left to create something.
That alone can be a challenge.
