    That's a shame...

    While we're throwing suggestions around: more/better incentives, maybe? Although, I can't think of anything, personally...

    To be honest, I was never really happy with the current incentive (your fic as fic of the month), to begin with. 1) it kind of limits who can play, since if you win and don't have a fic, that's pointless. 2) I think fic of the month should be more about merit and freshness. It seems a little weird to win being fic of the month through something that doesn't really have anything to do with writing something yourself. I think fic of the month should be nominated by people on the board (a rule of no repeats) and chosen from there by the mods.

    We decided to give away Fic of the Month as we could literally not think of any other prizes that would actually be worth anything. It is not the incentives that are the issue here though, its that no one has been submitting questions for the quiz, and the only incentive there is that people get to read your story and I would hope people would not be expecting anything extra to come from that. But yes, I will take the FOTM stuff into account as well :)

    I have to disagree with this. If members were allowed to nominate fics, none of the unknown fics that got little to no attention would be eligible and only the popular fics would get nominated and win over and over. And some of those lesser-known fics could be very good candidates.

    I think FotM should be decided only by the workshop staff as a whole. As in, they come together and look a bunch of fics on the board, regardless of the number of reviews they've gotten. Then they decide amongst themselves which of those fics gets FotM.

    This is not the place to be discussing the Fic of the Month, please move your conversation somewhere else, but I am fine with the current system we have in place.

    No the fics don't have to be finished, but this project has been closed for now.

    They do not, but if you have a question, you can PM it in. We may try resurrecting it during the summer months when there are more people around to take part.

    You can still submit a question if you would like, and it can go towards the resurrection of this thread should that occur. We may try it again at some point and see how it goes, though we do need to change the prize.

    We will be rebooting it sometime this year; we have discussed it and we do want to bring it back, but the main issue is sorting out what the prize will be. Once that issue is sorted then it will start again :)

    Maybe the prize could be a badge thing that the awards winners get? You've probably thought of this already but just tossing it out there :) Anyway, good to hear!

    If it was a badge, it would not be on the same level as the other Awards but perhaps an Honourary thing that may accumulate if you win a certain number of quizzes.

    Quick comment from me, Ace, I rather like that idea. Speaking as an author, it would be nice to reward readers for reading prolifically
    The Long Walk
    For Joshua Cook, it's a long walk away from his dull life to the Pokémon League. But does he really want to be the very best? A coming-of-age story of adventure, friendship and growing up in the world of Pokémon.
