Turns out that dyno_drabbles is closing, forever, Dec 15!!!

*sniffles* This makes me very sad. I've enjoyed participating in many rounds of this place the last couple of years.

And it's not like I could create something similar (well, I could, but...) because then I can't participate in something that I run.

*bats eyelashes* So, is anyone else interested in creating a similar type community?

I run a drabble community and I DO participate. There is no rule here. If the prizes were corporate sponsors, or money, yeah. But this is fun, why cut yourself out. You could ask to adopt dyno drabbles, instead of having the community die, especially if you love it.

Well, it's not one you have to vote with though? There's always rumors of impropriety if you participate in something you can vote on and you're in control of seeing who votes and the numbers.

I could offer, I suppose. Wibbling on it because the name seems based on the person who originally started it. So I dunno. I can ask though.

Get a volunteer to be a vote proctor, someone who doesn't write. =) They are your co-mod.

We dont vote on GS100, but we do garner points. But anyone can count the drabbles/art to get to the point amount. In other words, GS100 is "transparent" in its operations. I know thats different in LDS competition.

As far as name wibbling, just know that the community exists, and has name recognition, and has members. DynoDrabbles, while linked to DynoNugget, could also mean Dynamite Drabbles, Dynamic Drabbles... if the name association bugs you. To me it's marketing spin.

Frankly, if I wasn't so busy, I'd ask Dyno to run it and affiliate link it. But I don't have the time.

Yeah, the name recognition and the followers are the big thing. If one switches, you automatically lose part of those followers.

Yeah, you be a busy busy person!

If you do take it over, and just need someone to post the polls, I would be willing to do that for you. :)
