Guess the Author contest alert and feedback (updated 25th June)Once the third creative writing contest closes, on the last Sunday of this month I will be announcing the 'Guess the Author' contest. I have already taken the first step, by sending out emails to those members selected to be the authors.
This thread is to alert everyone to:
(i) Please check your emails for communications from me. If you are agreeable, then only I will let you know what topic to write on. Do not mention in this thread that you received the communication though! That would give away the fact that you are one of the authors.
(ii) Be prepared on 26th June to log in after 11a.m. and check the contest announcement thread.
As per feedback given by members, this time it will be kept simple. No ghost authors since apparently members are frightened of those creepy white figures!! The text of all the authors will be put in the contest thread only & you have to send me your guesses of who wrote which write-up. Complete instructions will be given in the contest announcement thread.

The rewards system:
You will get 5 points and 2cc for a right guess. If you are a participant, obviously you will know which one you wrote. Hence, no points and cc will be given for that 'guess'. However, to make up for that, you need to make an additional guess (see the contest announcement tomorrow).
Once the points are tallied, the one who gets the highest will be given the Forum Champ prize of Rs.50/-. Up to 3 members maximum can each get this cash prize, based on who sent them first. That is, if 3 members get equal points, all these 3 will get 50cc. Next highest tallied points will get Rs.40 [up to 2 members only]. So even if you are the 4th and 5th in line to get the most right, then you get Rs.40 or if you are the next highest points scorer. Then will follow Rs.30cc for the next highest scorer [1 member only].
