    Re: FanFiction of the Month Discussion.

    I've gone to fanfiction.net, written a thirty chapter story and now I think I'm ready to take on Narutobase again. ^_^

    I have to say, reading a few of the fanfics around here, I really think I could do well in the contests. The bar doesn't seem like it's raised too high. Once I've completed my final chapter back on the site, NB's fanfic archive can expect my glorious return!

    Good luck fellow writers ^_^

    I need to catch up on Michael's fic as well..

    Have you actually read the ffs of the people who actually enter the contest? The bar is pretty high in that respect.

    I mean, the rest is pretty marginal, but there are some decent hands here.

    Re: FanFiction of the Month Discussion.

    Hmm...

    n the one hand, I kind of like the traditional "gold silver bronze" placings. On the other hand, since more people havs been entering recently, fourth place would be even more incentive to enter.

    Why not? There are situations where fourth place should really get an award. (Like the contest we just finished.) I agree, assuming no one has any major qualms.

    Official 4th place position earning you a medal, or something else? If you're thinking about a medal, it could work, considering that the medals we already have are standard, as in, look the same for both 1st, 2nd and 3rd, instead of looking different to each other. In other words, the vibe/norm is that they are given out for placing 1-3rd, not because you won Gold, Silver or Bronze in those particular contests. I think you should establish a limit on 4th place medals though, like a criteria that at least 10 people have to join a contest or something.

    Something else that has to be taken into consideration is that this contest has soon been running for five years, which equals to a lot of months already, so would it be fair to those who placed 4th in the past to establish this now?? It's up to you to decide I guess, but these are my two cents.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    @ Germanicus and Michael; I agree, traditional is the way it has always been done but with the increasing number of participants averaging about 10 every contest maybe a 4th place would be a good addition? The 4th place would have a medal as well and treated like 1st, 2nd and 3rd are. Yep, Michael- There would have to be a minimum of 10 participants entering for a 4th place position to be available.

    I'm not yet convinced though, this idea only came up because i think Uzumaki16 deserved to place as well, but unfortunately there are no =3rd places.

    We could always wait until the contest gets bigger, it's bound to happen soon...

    Well, like I said, I don't really see no problem with it, unless people from the past contests comes in complaining that is.
    It's all up to you Sara, and I'm sure you will make the right decision regardless

    Re: FanFiction of the Month Discussion.

    @Lawliet - I personally don't think you should add a 4th place to the contest. It is supposed to be a contest, after all. That is how I see it, at least. If you feel like a 4th person deserves a medal, then you could easily split the 3rd place. Or easily might be the wrong word here - I really have no idea if you can do it or not.

    It's really up to you, though. As you already said, it might be best to wait till the contest gets bigger and more popular. ^^

    I just thought of this while reading your opinions. Why not add an "honorable mention" placing to every month? They don't get a medal like Top 3 (it would seem kinda weird otherwise), but they do get the...I guess you could say "exposure" that the placers do. That's my thought, anyways, I dunno lol

    You're back? O__o Regardless, that's one way to look at it, but on the other hand, it's still a contest regardless, just about extending the number of "prizes."

    This could also be done, but honorable mentions make it seem like they were judged by the staff, which they weren't (if we're still talking about 4th place in number of votes). We could have something like Staff's pick as well, but that could also ruin the concept of the voting. Like I mentioned above, the three medals are identical as they are right now, so just adding a 4th one could work. On the other hand, if the three medals symbolized 1st (gold), 2nd (silver) and 3rd (bronze) by being individual, then it would kind of defeat the purpose, but as I said, they aren't so yeah, could work.

    And the only thing that could be brought up in my opinion is the question regarding if it would be fair to past 4th placers to include a 4th place medal at this stage. The contest is getting bigger, but in the past, even when there were just three contestants in a contest, there were still three medals to be given out, so, I'm not really sure...

    Personally though, I don't see the problem, but I usually don't disagree with possible improvements if they can be sorted out in the right way, as a norm, haha.

    Well, honorable mention, fourth place, whatever you wanna call it, maybe give it a trial, see how it's received. There are ten people wanting to enter this month, after all. Wouldn't be a bad idea to test the waters.

    Yeah agreed. I think it would be nice to test 12-15 participants as well, something in which Sara mentioned that she might try at one time in the future, not long ago. Another thing, the "first 8 eligible" mark in each month's thread should be altered to fit the current 10 per months (which seems to be the norm these days), as well as the prices for each place (if a 4th medal is included.) Like for example, 1-3rd gives larger ava and medal, while 4th only gives a medal or something... Speaking of which, the 1st place has been given a cyan name for ages now, but it's still not showing in the "price-list" as a reward for winning. Some people might be unaware of that...

    Here's one example that could work:

    1st place - Medal, temporary larger ava, possible name change & cyan.
    2nd place - Medal, temporary larger ava & possible name change.
    3rd place - Medal & temporary larger ava.
    4th place - Medal.
