The site rules state

a.4.i - Profanity - Profanity is word choice or usage that is considered offensive (in this case, the decision is made by the staff). We have a light filter in place to remove most such words.

a.4.ii - leet is not cool (note how we didn't even give it the capital letter). The same filter that removes profanity will also remove some of the most common leet formations.

a.4.iii - Highly Offensive Content - Messages, links, or images that are obscene, vulgar, highly sexual, discriminatory, or in some way violate laws applicable in your area are not tolerated. This means text, links, and images everywhere. The staff will ultimately decide the appropriateness of any member-posted content.

a.4.iv - If you have any doubts on what is PG-13 or not, you might want to check out Medesha's PG-13? What does it mean?
If there was an issue with your entry that violated the site rules, you would have been contacted by a site moderator about it.

It's like when you use 3 instead of E and 4 instead of A to defeat text filters because you're a super hacker. Or a super ***0R. I think at this point the only people who are using it are doing it for nostalgia purposes because they're playing a cyberpunk game set in the 90s. But we must be ever vigilant.

The rule was written at the time that leetspeak was all over the forum and an emphasis on being a "family-friendly" place to game was high on the priority list for many of the admins and mods. The general mood of the forum has relaxed significantly since that time.

Lost cheerio you are awesome. I've literally enjoyed everything you've written that I've seen on these forums.

Thanks for sharing your feedback on the entries. It's so valuable to know whether what I was intending got across.

TBH, I'm pretty relieved. I didn't want to give up on all 4 ingredients having emotional gravitas. But to do that in 1500 words? Was worried the product would be unintelligible.

Round 1 results are posted. Congratulations to those who made it (or apologies for the continued stress). To everyone else, I hope to see you again next year, improving with the feedback you have gotten

Credit for most of all the round 1 closing posts goes to Unko Talok, with minor additions by me.


Round 2 will be posted tomorrow morning-ish my time (Europe). Which is probably late night for most of you in the US.

Round 2 is up and running. If you've moved on, go find your thread, read it and acknowledge that you've read it. Like for the round 1 closers, credit for the flavor text of the round 2 openers goes almost exclusively to Unko Talok, with minor additions by me.

Also, Round 0 and Round 1 have been moved to the archive.

Just as a little side note, this doesn't necessarily have to mean anything across different matches, especially when only looking at one round. For one, you have different ingredients that aren't necessarily all the same 'difficulty' across different matches, so if you had had another matches ingredients it's possible your would have scored higher (but so would everyone else in your match). Also, different judges have different average scores they give, depending on their method for scoring. Some are on the higher end, some are on the lower end, the most are somewhere in between. Each judge is consistent between competitors, but two judges liking the same competitor the exact same amount would not necessarily end up with them giving out the same score. And that's before considering that some judges might like things better, and some might like things less, so you might have scored differently with your same entry if you had had different judges. That's why there are multiple judges per match

Long story short, the way the judging system works is aimed at being a good and fair way of determining the best entry in each match. It is not really great at comparing the quality of entries between different matches with different ingredients and judges, because it isn't designed to, because it doesn't need to be.

The past week has been a whirlwind! I'm hopeful that sometime in the next day or two I can get the new bracket up and give RPXP to all the entries-- because holy cow do they deserve it! This was a great round 1, y'all!

But first I owe it to my GMs and players to try and get some posts up.

Just wanted to bow in thanks to the judges and all the organisers! Honest, constructive and friendly feedback is a blessing. I think this process is great for getting some much needed practice and advice too. I must confess to being quite terrified at first... but you're all so friendly and helpful! Cheers
