Guess the Title Author contest - check here for progress report, general instructions, feedbackAs per the interest expressed in the earlier thread, I will be announcing the Guess Title Author (GTA) contest next week after 6th September. This thread will give members an idea of what is happening behind the scenes, as a sort of progress report. You can also check this thread for instructions, post queries about the contest and give your general feedback.
I have already sent emails to members who would be the authors of the titles. All forum participants are requested to check your emails and reply. None of you (the authors) should get excited & happily declare in this thread that you got selected to write a title!! That would naturally spoil the guessing game. If I do not get a response from the member I contacted by Saturday evening, I will contact another member.
How the contest will pan out:
1. I will post the contest announcement thread with the list of titles after 6th September (not on a Sunday though) once all the entries have come in.
2. Anybody, including editors, can participate to guess which member had written which title. Sufficient time will be given to guess.
3. The answers (guesses) will be sent to my gmail ID only, which is [iscmanagingeditor]. Nobody should list the guesses in a response in the announcement thread. If you so so, you will be disqualified from the contest and given negative points.
4. In the contest announcement thread, you wil only mention that you sent your answers to my mail ID.
5. There will be cash awards as the main prizes. Correct answers will also get points and cc [to be credited to your response in the contest announcement thread]. The prizes, points and cc will be announced later.
Any member who acts as a nuisance and creates a ruckus will not be allowed to participate in this contest as well as my next 2 contests, whichever it may be.
