Guess the Author Contest 1 - who wrote the Titles?This is the first part of the Guess the Author contest. All members, including the authors themselves, can participate in the contests.
What you have to do: See the list below of the topic allotted to the 15 authors and the title submitted by each author. You have to guess which ISCians wrote the titles and send the answers directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not post your answers in this thread. You should send the answers like this -
GTA1: [name of member]
GTA2: [name of member]
Once you send the email to me, you must put a response in this thread to let me know, so as to get points & cc for your correct answers. Only your first email will be valid as an entry. So if you missed out on guessing one author, you cannot send a second email with the answer.
Some clues to help you: A broad hint has been given in response #618381 & in #617993 in the contest updates' thread (link above); there are 5 editors on the list; Author #15 is a "wildcard entry", that is, the ISCian is to be seen in the forum once in awhile; #11 is a regular GD participant; 5 authors are ladies.
Points & Awards: Every participant, including the winners, will get 3 points and 3 cc for each correct answer. The first two persons to get maximum correct answers, as determined by the time of their email, will each win Rs.100/-. The next ones in line will get Rs.75/- and Rs.50/- respectively (one each.) The maximum correct answers for this & of contest 2 combined will decide the bumper prize winners.
For their writing efforts and giving me their time, Authors will get 3 points by default for their own entries + 2 bonus points. They will also be given 5cc for self-entries only if they guess the theme which I selected as being common to all the topics given to the authors (hint - it is a word related & relevant to ISC.) In case they get the theme wrong for this contest, they can try again for contest 2 (they will be sent an intimation via email if it is incorrect.)
