It's one more entry than last time so I'm optimistic. Forgot to sticky this yesterday, sorry.

I think you should make entering the monthly contest mandatory instead of optional.

When I'm inevitably made moderator of this forum that'll be one of my first acts...

I haven't had the time and inspiration to enter it myself for quite some time. I hope that participation will increase again - not just as far as entries are concerned but also regarding people reading and commenting on the stories. We've had dry spells before so I remain optimistic.

The decision which story to vote for wasn't easy. I liked both milo's and Angry Fanboy's stories a lot. But the latter ultimately had a slight edge.

For me the Voyager one is the winner by a comfortable margin.

And you'll come round to my suggestion of forcing people to enter whether they like it or not eventually.

Even as a contestant, I must agree.

I'd say Fanboy needs to start thinking of a theme for the April challenge...

Re: March 2012 Challenge - Vote Now

Thank you all so much! I'm a bit dazed and confused that I won the contest with my first entry!

I really appreciate all the praise and kind words, particularly COUNT ZERO, SANDOVAL and NERYS GHEMOR, all of whom posted some terrific feedback.

Thanks again!
