Midnight on the 14th was the deadline for entries for the Short Story Competition.So no more entries will be excepted.

I just want to explain briefly the judging.

Seekerof and Myself are judging.

Each story is awarded a mark out of ten for Writing.This is not just the nuts and bolts,spelling and grammer,but a general score based on how well the story was written.

Each story is awarded marks out of 10 for Story.These points are awarded on the basis of how good the story is.

Each story is awarded marks out of 5 for it's association with the Green Forums.5 points for a very clear association,0 for no association.

This then gives a score out of 25.

Mine and Seekerof's scores are then added together and finally doubled to give a final score out of 100.

I can tell you that most of the scores have already been calculated.The final results should be up this evening.

The quality is very high and,so far,it is very close.No one who entered has any reason to feel bad if they do not make the top three and get a share of the points and remember these results are only the reflection of both mine and Seekerof's views.

Goodluck to everyone involved.You'll hear more later.

OK,Thankyou for your patience.I can now put everyone out of their misery.

On another thread we agreed that first place would get 6,000 points,Second would get 3,000 points and third would get 1,000.

I've explained above how the result was calculated.Luckily we do have a clear winner.

It is...........................

(MSSS) - A True Story of "Something" Inside of Me. --- by ScienceGuyQ


Congratulations ScienceGuyQ!

The next places are more difficult as we had 4 stories on 88%.

They were:

(MSSS) Spontaneous Human Combustion ---by Genya


MSSS: Mechanics of a Cataclysm --- by DeusEx


(MSSS)- One of Those Nights ---by DeusEx


MSSS - Best Friends Forever --- by worldwatcher


So as there is 4,000 points left in the kitty I think it is fair to award 1,000 points for each of the four stories.

If any member wishes to find out how each of their stories faired then U2U me but remember this is for fun so no death threats,OK?

Congratulations to all.The standard was very high indeed and,as ever,it was difficult for the judges.
