Hello Wannabe. Let me carefully venture a reply. I am new here, only a couple months. Is it a little clicky? Yes, it is. But I would imagine that is the case in any active forum. People get to know each other, human nature takes its course.

The nice thing about this challenge was that someone independent picked the winner. I got the sense he was going to go with the script he thought had the best chance to be successful. He picked the one he wanted to film. As it should be.

There was a request by a moderator in the middle of his announcement process that was a little unsettling. It kind of had the tone of a suggestion to pick one of the regulars. But I seriously doubt that influenced the process.

Hopefully they can continue to find people like Rick who will judge based on filming potential. For something that didn't cost anyone anything, the Challenge was outstanding. And Wannabe, I am outside the click, feel free to send me anything to read if you would like an opinion.

I'm really curious about who you guys think the click is.  Can you please PM me a list of who?   I promise I will not share your list with anyone.  Thanks.

Just to clarify, my comment about hoping an SS regular got picked was specifically pointed at Keaton and nobody else.

Wannabe, I quite enjoyed your comments. Especially on mine. I'm nobody to say who stays or goes around here.

Keaton. Scroll down to the bottom of King's Speech and tell me what the last two words are??? THE END.

Maybe you should email mister Seidler and tell him his script failed to meet your criteria. Plus, Keaton started this by calling out "What's with you SS people and The End?"

A stupid argument I know. But, I like to argue. You'll get to know me if you stick around. I'm not half bad and you learn to take everything I say with a fist of salt.

Don't want to get involved here...

...but can't help myself from saying this: it's CLIQUE! Not CLICK!

Now carry on.


Guess who's back? Back again?

There is no "click".  Outside of the OWC there's just people reading each other's scripts.  People know those who read their scripts.  And people know when those people don't return reads.  It's that simple.  When you hang out here just during the OWC you might perceive a "click", but it's only the people who are regularly here.  That group changes with time as well.  The acceptance into this group is that you participate regularly. You can ask K(hamanananana) about this.  She gets it.      


Well, I'll take your word for it. Since you are a level headed upright guy.

Clique might be a grey area.  There are a group of folks who stand out more than others, and these few gravitate towards one another.  

I've been here for many years off and on from being banned, my own ego and other quarks... I' ve never been apart off the main circle, but I feel apart of this site.  And I owe alot of my earlier work, when I would post it, to this site and the feed back I was given... Phil, Bert, and Shelton are undeniable in talent.  

So clique or not, you can still learn a lot just by looking through the glass.

Ok. Guys.  The point here is there is no Click or Clique - however you want to spell it.  

This is probably the most tolerant and accepting of differences screenwriting site on the planet.   Everyone is welcome here as long as they don't wreak havoc.  Even Ray (Sorry Ray couldn't resist ).

What about a Prique?

Congrats to the writer of Captive! Still not sure what type of creature Lark is, but it was well written.

Cheers to Rick and Don for organising this nifty challenge.

Oh my God.
You sissies are such delicate flowers.


I've always been on the outside of any clique. Always.
I'm long accustomed to being tolerated as a clique of one, where people from different backgrounds routinely cast sideways, polite smiles at me. At best.

Ain't never come home dead.
Ain't never starved to death, either.
Somehow...

Havoc!
HAVOC!
HAVOC!

BLOODY HAVOC!


LOL!

*Sob* My script hath been shunned!  Guess Funny Farm will have to wait.  (Inside joke, sorry.)

For the record - it's Territory.  Ah...but wait until the rewrite is posted...!   I upped the ante several notches, as a result of certain reviews.  

But lotsa congratulations to Captive!  It'll be great to see your work translated to the big screen (whoever you are - oh mystery writer.)

On an unrelated note, people should be reminded (in future OWC's) to clear their names off their Adobe program before they convert their script to PDF. (I think that's how it works)   Apparently some didn't know that if you right clique on a script and go to document properties, it displays their name.    

Kinda puts a damper on the whole anonymity thing.


EDIT:  Excellent job, wonkavite, on writing Territory.   You nailed it.

So who wrote Captive.  Any guesses?

Ryan guessed P Whitcroft

That sounded feasible to me.  I would venture a guess that it was someone from North America.  I got that vibe from it.
