    It's definitely possible that the more "popular" people will get the most amount of likes, but that's not necessarily what will define the winner.

    Just look at this story for example: http://forum.novelupdates.com/posts/2345539/

    The person that made it has 13 likes on the story, and it's someone quite unknown. Which means any story has a fair chance of winning IMO.

    Just vote for the ones you think that deserve to win, that's enough by itself, isn't it?

    Oh yeah I deleted the post cuz none of the "popular" ones made a post there. But ps: http://forum.novelupdates.com/threa...t-submission-thread.40469/page-3#post-2454652 I don't think that is considered as a short story....you should make a music competition.

    Okay sorry. But I had no idea that interpretative oral reading with background music meant writing songs.....I don't even know what interpretative oral reading means. Is it dramatic reading or smthn?

    Okay, just asking... Are any of them actually interesting to someone who never goes into profile posts?

    I... Don't know?

    I didn't read any so far, I didn't want them before all were up, so as to make sure I'm not biased on it.

    Judging by the titles, I think there should be a fair amount that can be interesting for someone that doesn't go into profiles though.

    I'll take a look later. Ping me or something cause I'll likely forget.

    Well, judging by what some people put on their entries, like: "this is a part of an old story that I ended up dropping" and the like... They might be completely off topic... >.>

    That doesn't mean bad quality though, just not entering the purpose of the contest...

    If I still can, then do tell me. If not, then I guess I'm already a drop-out for the contest.
    This story of mine is an Intermission of another story of mine, that I added NUF as the Bystander at the end. So the chances for it to win is small anyway.

    I...I forgot about this contest. O u O

    There goes my plot bunny about justabot assimilating with JARVIS and helping Tony fight off all the villains from xianxia novels Avenger style with his team of Mods before they invaded NUF and tried to ramp up their novel popularity---

    Ah well, I would've had to ask a bunch of people for permissions. Now I'll go vote for my favs instead!! XD
