Quoted from Dreamscale
Congrats to all the "winners", but all who entered and read, and gave feedback are the real winners.

To those who entered, got reads and feedback, and gave no feedback, you should be ashamed.  Serioulsy.



This (peeps not reading) use to not bother me - kind of a, oh well - but I have to admit it's pissing me off more and more. Like - heh, I'm going to bring nothing to the potluck dinner - the food better be good.

There was an entrant in this one that claimed they couldn't read scripts from the last OWC because of illness (a very long one I guess) and sure as shit they did the same thing this time. WTF? When I see all the folks who didn't enter read and comment it makes me even crankier to see ones that did enter and not comment.

Dave Lambertson, I sent you a PM.  Totally inapplicable to this conversation.  Just a question about a filmmaker you worked with.

The next Purge movie will be about a 24 hour period when writers of the OWC can hunt down those who entered but did not leave any reviews.

I agree with you Dave. When I saw that writers name pop up I was annoyed - what’s more annoying is that they also cheated (EDIT: I suspect anyway, thought I should clarify). The script they submitted is a version of one that already existed - I knew I had read the title and logline somewhere, but wasn’t until the name was revealed that I remembered.

Writer, if your reading, the point of the challenge is to to come up with a new story in a week, not submit one you already had.

Congrats to you, Al! I'm looking forward to reading yours.

And of course congrats to everyone who entered.

I hope no one actually just re-purposed an old script for this challenge, that's pretty low. Can anyone confirm this as fact?

I agree it's poor form.

If it annoys you (and it obviously does) follow Bert's advice and remove your feedback from the script in question.

If that did occur it would only be an issue imho, if that particular script rose to the top of the pack of Writer's Choice, and that's unlikely to happen.

It's usually pretty transparent when a script has been re-edited to fit the parameters of an OWC, or if it has been posted before keen eyes are going to suss it out.  

The writer would certainly not be doing themselves any favours by posting a rehashed version of something previously written, or daring to incur the wrath of you lot.  

My advice is let it go.
This particular OWC is done and dusted.

Alternatively, you can PM Don your concerns.

P.S. Oh, and as above. If you feel the writer doesn't deserve your feedback (for their lack of participation) delete it from the thread in question.

If that's the case, I would suggest a one year ban from entering any OWC.

Further to what was said above, Matthew: Do you see that 'Report' button, right hand side of the script thread? You can always use that to notify Don, for any shenanigans eg. if you thought you'd already read a script prior to the OWC.

I'm kind of curious now, too.
I also wonder if,in the previous OWC this script was from they had the same errors as they had in this OWC...if that was the case,it tells you something about that scribe.

Even if that person is new to screenwriting.  If so, they may not know of what to look for, technical issues, an soon, so they fear commenting because "they don't know what to say"
I've heard that excuse before- it's BS.  Subjective opinion can also cover story an characters, what you like or don't like.
