The monthly NC-17 j-rock challenge
28th-Feb-2009 02:12 pm
Okay...I give up, seriously. Nobody posted and nobody entered the contest. How can I make this better? Honestly, I am completely open to any and all suggestions that you have.

Would it help if I made it a contest community instead of a challenge community?

Poll #1357277 How can I make this community better?


Contests instead of challenges
Recruit more members
More time
Less time
Better prompts
Picture prompts instead of text
other (specify please)

Do you even care?

If something interesting happened, maybe.

Poll #1357278 How can I make this community better?

Make contests instead of challenges
Better Prompts
Picture prompts instead
More prompts/options
More Time

Okay, please vote everyone, I beg you. You don't even have to comment on anything if you just vote in the damn poll. Unless you pick other, and then i'd really like to know. I'm open for all suggestions people! PLEASE!

Please answer the first one, not the second...an oopsie on my part.

EDIT: In case you were curious, no there will not be a challenge for March. I'm going to take this month to reconfigure everything and whatnot. If any of you would like to help me, please tell me so, I can use all the help I can get.

Don't blame yourself for people not submitting anything or entering the contest. I've noticed that a lot of the writers seem to be busy lately and there really haven't been all that many fics written. Or maybe it's just me.. or maybe people's muses have gone MIA.. like mine have.
1st-Mar-2009 08:15 am (UTC)
No, I totally agree. Bummer, hon, hope they come back. ^_^
1st-Mar-2009 08:27 am (UTC)

XD Thanks for trying, dear.

I couldn't get sexy with chocolate - I did try honest *gomen*
1st-Mar-2009 08:16 am (UTC)
^_^ At least you tried, then. S'okay. Maybe you could try to suggest a prompt?
1st-Mar-2009 03:38 pm (UTC)
it's not that I wouldn't care, I simply have no time to write atm
1st-Mar-2009 03:56 pm (UTC)
Oh, I understand. Don't worry about it. ^_^

7th-Mar-2009 08:36 am (UTC)
Yay! :3 Let me know!
Also something about a layout? *checks profile* Maybe I can make something for the community once everything is settled :3 I wouldn't mind making icons as well [icon/graphic junkie]

Thanks :3 I'm a Asagi fan ♥ x3
7th-Mar-2009 02:44 pm (UTC)
That would be great! You can do it before everything's done, though, if you feel like it. ^__^

7th-Mar-2009 06:36 pm (UTC)
Sure! :3 I would be glad to do so! ^o^//

Hi it's me! :3 I come with a layout!♥
It's hosted here: http://mayoi-no-mori.livejournal.com/
I'll have it up a little past April, probably a week after the first.

I tried to go with the theme of the community, I hope you like it.
OH the quote I used on the header is by Alain Danielou, quoted from the printed on Kama Sutra Art book...or so [Found it on the webs *COUGH*]
18th-Mar-2009 01:42 pm (UTC)
And I made a couple of Icons as well:

22nd-Mar-2009 03:05 pm (UTC)
*SQUEE* Thanks so much! The layout and the icons are fantabulous! I'm gonna make the post now to see which layout people like better. ^___^
7th-Mar-2009 07:09 pm (UTC)
heya i just joined too ^_^ i always get discouraged by myself right after i wrote anything so i get really scared of posting things XD so silly~ XD but i'll try to be active here, though i've never written any nc-17 stuff before >////< i'll still try, but can we still post things if its not nc-17? i'm quite nervous >///<
i agree with the layout thing, it does look quite plain.... >.<
i still look forward to the next one though!
8th-Mar-2009 02:47 am (UTC)
Awesome and welcome aboard!

I look forward to your contributions, and sorry, nothing that isn't NC-17.

Yeah...working on thatXD
8th-Mar-2009 08:16 pm (UTC)
Don't get all down, I'm sure it's not your fault. I know that I, personally, have been MIA for a while but I'm back now! And will participate, promise.

and it's a secret, but i'm gonna do a layout, too.
9th-Mar-2009 11:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks, hon. And that's great!

*squee* maybe I can still do my contest...only it'll be a bit more disorganized this time. XD Awesome!
10th-Mar-2009 05:31 pm (UTC)
I've been meaning to volunteer to do it for a while, but, yanno. RL is an annoying game that takes up a lot of time >>;

Let me know if you need help with anything else tho. I'd be glad to help.
10th-Mar-2009 06:02 pm (UTC)
Lemme know what you think og this: crystalscars
10th-Mar-2009 07:06 pm (UTC)
Damn, that was fast! XD I love it, it's very beautiful. I guess we shall se what nokoriga come sup with and then I'll ask the members to vote on them. Nice!
13th-Mar-2009 11:43 pm (UTC)
I have to admit, me and my muses went AWOL for a long while. My chronic illness likes making my life hell and I recently returned to the wonderful educated system after taking time off. So my life's been very busy as of late...

I know my plot for the last prompt of chocolate wasn't NC-17 either so that unfortunately didn't work. ^^'
15th-Mar-2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
T_T I'm sorry sweety.

It's okay, that happened to most people. XD
