This round will finish when DaveC sends in his votes, or at 10:00 Sunday 19 (as stated earlier).

If DaveC doesn't vote, then all the pairings can be worked out. 8-)

The next round will only last 3 days (not 4 like this round). :dance:

I believe Dave C is sitting in a kind of home made throne in a dark, dank cellar, steepling his fingers and chuckling to himself and muttering under his breath "Yes, yes, I have them just where I want them... haha!"

OK, what now? I propose each voter gets 3 votes so could score each match 3-0 or 2-1 or 1-2 or 0-3.

I think that's an excellent idea and will (possibly) be used in the next round. :clap:

Looking at the matchesthis round, there are only two I'd go for the split 2-1/1-2 decision. :dance:

However, this round I'm trying to get other people from the Broken Drum to vote, so want it as easy as possible so as not to confuse the poor dears. 8-)

I thought your story was excellent, Sim. :clap: :clap:

I also thought Q's stories were excellent (I even voted for two of them! :shock: ) :clap: :clap:

But what you've got to remember is that the people voting are s-t-r-a-n-g-e. :lol: :lol:

I personally think that Bang is the best story, yet it didn't even win its group. :shock: :shock:

(Bear in mind that I love Pyramids, so everything I say is probably bollux! :lol: :lol: )

Next year you'll do better! 8-)

PS: Don't forget to vote! :dance:

Neither did my one, it's a shame I didn't have a chance to write more, I spent too much time stressing over a job application which I didn't even get an interview for in the end.

My story (Swear) was a slightly abbreviated version of a story I did for a similar task at uni. :)
