2006-10-03 [Linderel]: Here, probably.

2006-10-04 [GoneGone]: I was wondering why there wasn't a short story aspect to this competition and whether it could be included in future creative contests.

2006-10-04 [Sunrose]: There will be a separate short story contest soon :)

2006-10-04 [GoneGone]: Yay! I'll keep an eye out for it! Thank you.

2006-10-31 [Gregory.]: :-( Can i please enter mine..? I didn't find out how to get here until now..!

2006-11-01 [Linderel]: Well, the contest was closed a couple of days ago, and we're currently choosing the winners, so... That would be a no.

2006-11-01 [Sunrose]: Comments by [Gregory.] deleted. These are the rules, you had over a month to enter. If you couldn't find this wiki, you still had tons of time to ask for help.

2006-11-01 [Gregory.]: And how am i suposed to know that there is any if they aren't advertised? And i joined in less then a month ago so you can kiss meh ass

2006-11-01 [Linderel]: The news on Mainstreet.

2006-11-01 [Sunrose]: Your house shows you joined Elftown in February 2006 (that's 8 months ago, not 1!).
The contest was announced in <news:Halloween Contests 2006!> (Sept. 24th) and advertised in -every- newsitem after that:
<news:[ET Desktop Design Contest@wiki] <poll:72650>>, <news:[Elftown Prose Contest@wiki]!>, <news:[ET Desktop Design Contest@wiki] winners!> and <news:[Fantasy Portrait Contest@wiki]>.
It was also added to Competitions and to the Mainstreet Calender (which is on the left side of Mainstreet, until the deadline was reached).
So quite frankly, you can kiss MY ass. Further comments from you will be deleted.
