Lime Day - Story-telling contest! Deadline March 16, 2008


Logo by Sandiibottom

This Lime Day, I am happy to give those forum-going-artsy-wordy-types a fun event just for them! This event encourages pirates to be quick to tell a great, heartwarming tale of Lime Day.

The Rules:
*Story must be no more than 500 words.
*It can either be fact or fiction.
*Each entry must be signed with your pirate's name on Cobalt.
*Your entry cannot include any color words aside from lime (ex: You can't have a story with this red, blue, brown, black and orange sentence.)
*Entries must be placed in the entry thread and no post or edit dates beyond March 15, 2008 11:59:59 PM.

The Prizes:
1st place - A sleeping piglet furniture item, along with all the limes he can eat!*
2nd place - A pet pig, along with all the limes he can eat!*
3rd place - A lime pie... I know, it's no pig, but you can always display it proudly for the whole ocean to see!
Honorable mentions are possible and will recieve prizes according to the discression of Stevensam.


* the term "all the limes he can eat!" is a number later to be determined by me.

I'm sensing (through his prizes and raffles) that Stephensam might be a pig-loving pirate who misses a certain bevy of pigs...

A Lime -rick contest might be a good idea, after all, being able to adjust letters to make it sound more limey is always fun. Check the forums closer to April 16th!

Edit: And don't forget, the entry thread is closing at 11:59:59PM pirate time tonight! Any edits or posts in the thread after that time will be disqualified!

Re: Lime Day - Story-telling contest! Deadline March 16, 2008

And our winners have been determined!

With the help of my secret Lime Day judge, we have decided on these pirates as our winners:

1st place - Passionpatti, winning a sleeping piglet
2nd place - Ilya, winning a pet pig
3rd place - Sultana, winning a lime pie


For the rest of the pirates, there were some lovely stories, but some stories broke the rules (more than 500 words, used words for colors other than lime, turned it too late) but overall, it was a fun time! Yes, I do know that Ilya used the word "greenies" in his story, but I'm not going to count that as a color because then I'd have to go through and DQ every entry that had the letters "r - e - d" in them.

Thank you to all who entered this contest, maybe next month there will be more interest!

Congrats to the winners

I think I might have been disqualified as I misunderstood the rules. I thought we could use lime and associated green shades but no other colours :(

Oh well it was a fun comp - thanks for running it :)
