    The Reader's Corner Prize Nook


    What is it?
    This is a thread to catalogue available prizes for those who participate in Flashfiction, to log their progress towards earning said prizes and to explain some of the minutiae associated.​

    How does it work?
    The Flash fiction is run in a two week cycle, during the first week people submit their entries and during the second week we all give each other constructive criticism and (ideally) a rating out of ten. At the end of the second week, the person with the highest average score will earn six points, the next highest will earn four points and the third highest will earn two points.

    When your point tally gets high enough for you to purchase a prize then just post what prize you'd like in this thread and we'll pass the message up the chain to get it signed off. You can also combo these points with (most) other contest points you receive around the site - the most dominant of which would be the Hidden Village of Art weekly contests.​

    What conditions are attached?
    The purpose of the Flashfiction is ultimately not to earn you points, those are just an added bonus and tool of encouragement. In reality this contest is operated with the somewhat lofty goal of improving our writing through the collective learning experience. To that end it's expected that you contribute to both the criticism week and the submission week, if we see that you're consistently not contributing to the second week's crit process or are contributing poorly then we may decide that you're not eligible for the points you would have earnt.

    This is a grey area of course, it's a subjective judgement made by us about who's contributing and who's not however as long as you're making an honest effort to help your fellow participants out then you'll be fine, we're not in the business of attacking people without technical knowledge, just people trying to leech the prizes. This is meant to be a reward for engagement, not a place to circlejerk your way into a large avatar.

    A good guideline that we like to go by is that your crit for each person should be at least 50 words.​

    What prizes are available?
    You have your choice of any prize currently available in the .

    How many points do I currently have?
    The current list of participants and their points are in the following post, if you do not find your name in this list that means you currently have either never participated in or never placed in a Flashfiction. The good news is that means you're in a prime position to earn yourself some by entering the next contest! :skysun

    I imagine he's gonna go for the section :hm
     
  7. nb4 he continuously sabotages other people's chances of winning by giving them obscenely low scores so he can make a section dedicated to konoha donuhabi or whatever it's called sooner than later :hm

    u didn't lol

    the way I wrote it I had it like this

    Luc - 6+6+6+4+4+6 etc.

    so when I copy pasted it to calculate it it accidentally took the first six as negative six and spat out 54

    I fixed it in the actual points post (u have 60) but I forgot to fix it there

    You guys, we gotta hurry! I just stepped in this Prize Nook, Nighty's giving free points for doing absolutely nothing! Plus, every time you get one point you get a review that you don't really need because all you really need is points, right guys?
    Now listen! We can flip that son of a bitch for two hundred and thirty points, easy! They're all for a limited time only! Hurry! Hurry, come with me! We can be rich in prizes and we also all get to keep one prize and we can buy... Big avas and sparkles! Nighty, give me free prizes!

    @Nighty the Mighty Now, if we use these points for a HVoA prize is it still susceptible to the same rules and all? Like I have the level-4 "Legacy" on HVoA which means a name change is only 14 points instead of 18 - does that still apply?

    Yeah, but it's the points you've earned over career, each level is 50 points but only goes up to level 4 max. I'm level 4 Legacy (God this sounds dumb but it saves me points) so I could get a name change for 14 points instead of 18 in the art section, just want to know if it would apply to these points too. :mlpshrug
