I have not been able to keep up with all the comments in the WT. Scripts threads or otherwise. If you see a post you feel is over the line, either flag the post or pm one of the mods for swift handling of the situation.

Your friendly mod.


Personally, haven't seen anything that is over the line. Just a lot of - ughs!

I think people are most upset at the implications of cheating.

Regarding Jeff... and I really don't want to add to the negative vibe...

But, I would think that he would take offending people with pride. Isn't that what "edgy" writers are going for? I've always thought that was part of his goal. So, yes, it does surprise me to see him bothered by negative scores and people reacting harshly to his work. I'd say: "Own it as a mark of meeting your objective."

But, we're all human. (Yes, it appears even Dreamscale has feelings. Shocking, I know.)

Any cheating that does go on does not affect the standings to a degree where the best script doesn't win. I'm a non-bias observer and from what I've seen the scripts that deserve to win have done. I also cannot see anyhting untoward in the rankings.

The accusation against Libby was uncalled for and not true. She/he (I think she's a husband/wife team) is an excellent writer and I don't doubt at all that she can hit the top spots.

Jeff v Libby = Libby wins... IMO. Just saying.

Quoted from Matthew Taylor
Well done Warren - you absolutely smashed it - Rats of a Feather topped my list.
Also well done to LC, Scar, PK, Rene - Nicely done guys. Actually, well done to everyone - some seriously talented writers around here.

Philostrate - as you can tell from my review, I bloody loved yours as well lol

Too much negativity in this tournament now though, accusations being thrown around at everyone, bitchin' that writers are not in the right "place" in the standings. No wonder so few newbies join in, who from the outside would see that and think "yeah i want a piece of that"?
It's not fun anymore so round 3 is the last one for me.

Thanks Don and Mr Blonde for putting this on - Really gave me a chance to stretch my creative legs and try some new stuff

Good luck to you all - from the sounds of it, the next couple of rounds are going to be tough.


Thanks, Matt. I was under the gun so the script is where it should be, but I'm glad someone liked it. Yours was really good, and you were also pressed by time, nicely done.

Like Paul and Gary, I'd like you to reconsider. Keep writing. Just for fun. So far, it's worked great.

Wasn't aware of an accusation.  Finally found something buried in one of Jeff's posts.


Quoted Text
I smell a few rats, and I'm almost completely positive about that.  You rats know who you are, and I have a sneaky suspicion you rats will somehow keep coming up "roses".


Jeff - I think either a clarification or an apology is in order.

It's a great tournament though.

I've had a great amount of fun. It really gets you writing and it punishes you for any mistakes.

It wouldn't be the same without Jeff, either. His visceral attacks on stories really get to the marrow of things.

Hey, great job, Warren and Libby!

No I surely didnt know it was Libby's. It just happened to be super funny and thus my favorite. Happy to see people voted for it.

Rene, yours is another great one.
Thanks for the entertainment, guys

I get involved in discussions on numerous threads. That's my favourite part.


I responded to your comment on mine just for the sake of having fun. I don't see it as a problem.

Congrats to Warren and Libby, and everyone for getting a script in, it's a hard genre.

Didn't see the bit about Matthew quiting, I'll echo everyone else, good reviewer, good guy... don't quit.

Jeff stirring shit again, surely not!

Jeff - I think either a clarification or an apology is in order.


Dave (and everyone else), I'm not going to apologize for anything I said, that I truly believe.  I do apologize for upsetting everyone, pissing them off, offending them, etc.

Going back to my original comments about the scoring and placement of scripts, I completely stand by what I said.  I was literally shocked when I read down the list.  As I read it over a few times, I saw a script I couldn't even remember, sitting in 2nd place, so I opened it up, read my feedback, read all the other feedback,  and then reread the entire script.

For the life of me, I cannot figure out how it's possible this script was deemed to be the 2nd best of the bunch.  For the most part, feedback was not overly positive - yeah, 2 peeps said it was either their favorite or a top 3, but there was much feedback about the fact that it didn't even meet the requirements of the challenge.

And, it didn't.  The meat of the story had nothing at all to do with a sewer, and was told through a Flashback of talking heads, with a whistle inserted simply to show that time was up for each individual "speed date".

How this ended up with the 2nd highest scores just screams that something is wrong...wrong with the scoring system, wrong with the actual voting.  And this is my point - it makes ZERO sense this could come out in 2nd place.

I don't care who wrote the script.  What I do care about is that at best, it was a middle of the road entry that should have received a 1 in meeting the criteria.

That's all I care to say at this point.

Because some people loved it and gave it very high marks. That's all there is to it.
