The Literature Judges are those who judge official Elftown competitions that fall under the 'Literature' (prose/poetry). Their jobs include critiquing a piece of work and helping the Council decide on the winners.

Please do not message the Judges and ask them to vote for a specific piece. They will be judging based on quality, craftsmanship, grammar and spelling. Soliciting votes is frowned upon and may get your entry removed from said contest.

The Literature Judges do not watch the entry pages for the prose and poetry competitions; they are sent all the entries minus the entrants' usernames so that judging is anonymous.


The Literature judges are:

Illustrious [Linderel]
Illustrious [wicked fae mage]
Illustrious [Teufelsweib]
Illustrious [hanhepi]
trainee [Ravendust]
trainee [Doormat]
trainee [Eyden13]

2011-05-06 [kians mummy]: what, you mean honesty

2011-05-06 [Lord Josmar]: I think more hardheadedness and over determination. That last one may be a bit weird so let me explain. You really want to be crew, and I understand that because I do too, but you are trying way too hard, and may be considered annoying. I'm not saying to stop trying or to stop contributing, far from it, keep participating in Elftown, but tone it down a bit and earn everyones appreciation and you will be asked to join stuff and help out.

2011-05-06 [Lord Josmar]: Sorry, on phone and its hard to type with sometimes.

2011-05-06 [kians mummy]: ok, i will take your advice, you will be good on crew, you talk well

2011-05-06 [Lord Josmar]: Lolz. Thank you, I try.

2011-05-06 [kians mummy]: and you do well

2011-05-06 [SilverFire]: Sammie I explained to you when you first commented on this page that we'd had a group of people in mind who we were talking to first, and that if we didn't get enough people from that, then we would open it up to applications. All the people who are currently listed on this wiki are from that initial group we were talking to, no one has been added yet through applying.

I'm hoping 14 people will be enough, given that not every judge will be helping judge every contest. If the group gets too big then it will actually be harder to reach a consensus about a winner. But since we've not done this before, we're playing it by ear. If, after a few contests, we find that the group is way too big/way too small, then we'll have to make adjustments. :)

2011-05-06 [kians mummy]: you actually said open it up to the public.

2011-05-06 [SilverFire]: ...applications from the public. :P

2011-05-10 [Doormat]: So is there a discussion wiki up? Or is it still under construction?

2011-05-10 [SilverFire]: There's nothing to discuss yet... <_<

2011-05-10 [Doormat]: :( Maybe we can discuss the current entries or work out who is entering what competition and will not be judging it?

2011-05-10 [SilverFire]: If someone is planning on entering a competition, they should make note of that in the forum. :)

2011-07-01 [kians mummy]: Trick question: so how long do you reckon it will take you all to decide ibn the limerick competition

2011-07-01 [Akayume]: However long it takes. (:

2011-07-01 [kians mummy]: kk :)

2011-07-03 [kians mummy]: limericks page 1 paricipents still haven't been badged yet after three days, what is going on there?

2011-07-03 [Linderel]: The badging only happens after the results are out. There would be no sense to give everyone a badge before we know who the winners are. :)

2011-07-03 [SilverFire]: C'mon Sammie, how many times have I explained that now? :P

2011-07-03 [kians mummy]: I ment, how come there are still no results yet, after three days

2011-07-03 [SilverFire]: We did say we didn't know how long judging would take. :P The judges don't just vote, they discuss each entry. It's probably going to take at least a week. :)
