Whoa, it's been a week already? And around two months since we began the contest?
Time flies when you're having fun I guess and I've been having a lot of fun with this contest!

Next round is.. The round @bashadow created in our create a contest round which was the 3rd one we did.

Bashadow's - Word Contest Idea.

A very simple contest? Or is it? The contest only requires one paragraph, of four sentences. The length of the sentence is up to the writer. So here are the rules for this contest.

Write one paragraph.
Paragraph must have four (4) sentences.
All words must start with the same letter.

Here is what an entry could look like:

Four fat frogs flipped four fat flies frying. Four fancy ferrets found four funny felines. Four funny felines fought four ferocious foxes. Four fancy ferrets flew forward fighting four ferocious foxes fighting four fancy felines.

Your four sentences should sort of make sense, at least a little bit.

And also, we are going to be doing another bonus round this round since I have so many ideas and not enough time, and our IFC still needs help being brought to life more.

This bonus round will be creating a small simple slogan for the IFC.

Preferably something quick and catchy.

One I thought of was.. "Play a game, and help others".. My mother actually thought of a decent one when I talked to her about this and the one she thought of was "Turn life into a game".

However, I'm not sure either of those are quite right, I have a feeling one of you will come up with an even better one! :D

So.. Now that we're getting more established, we need a slogan!
One of the previous challenges was to create a logo for the IFC and we had a round to find a sponsor and bring more players back to the game, so.. We're sort of using the game to help create itself. And so far it's been working surprisingly well.

The community has come together in epic fashion to help construct this virtual world. And I have a feeling it will continue to do so for a while yet to come. :)

Also, I forgot to mention this last time, but no additional steem or SBD are awarded for these bonus rounds unless otherwise stated. If you win the bonus round however you will get 3XP like a normal round and a win on your record.

Another thing that's new that we are going to try to do is.. Start rewarding people more for good comments!

We want this to be a more socially active community and it'd also be nice to add an additional way for people to level up outside of the actual rounds.

I will put this in the next updates rules, but.. From now on us judges will be looking for the best comment to go with each round, and if the judges pick your comment you will get an additional 1 XP, UNLESS.. You submit your comment within the first 24 hours of the round starting, then you will receive 2 XP for being quicker and more active in the community.

And now a moment for our sponsors!

First up is @ats-david who has helped greatly! If you appreciate this contest or just his efforts in general you may want to look into voting for him as a witness at @ats-witness, he does a lot of other cool things for the community as well!

Next is @timcliff who has similarly helped out the contest significantly and who is also a witness who does a lot for the community, so likewise if you appreciate the efforts you may want to vote for him as witness also!

I'd also like to thank @theguruasia who has pledged at least 20 steem to the second and third place prizes and he said he may even donate more.

And @nxtblg who has been regularly resteeming and upvoting our challenges which has been a big help!

Plus one other person who has been helping a lot who deserves some credit is @soundlegion who has also been upvoting the contests regularly.

For this challenge.. If there's a tie.. We will do another round to see who wins.

The winner will be decided by whoever gets the most votes.
The only people who can vote in a qualifying sense are myself and the judges I've selected and we will vote by leaving a comment on the submission that we like the most and say something like.. "I vote for this one" and a reason why we voted would be good too, but is not mandatory.

You have until this challenges post payout ends to submit your post. Though we do accept late entries if you get it in before all the judges vote.

The challenge will finish after 7 days when the post ends and provides its payout cycle and unless there is a tie, the winner will gain the steem, the XP and have a point to go towards their long term win. (minus the 25% for curation)

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #52. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

·

Cool to know we were added to your list of contests! Thanks! If you'd like I can notify you each time we do a writing challenge? Also. I appreciate what you're doing! And definitely gave you an upvote and a resteem. I'll also give your list a mention on our discord which is starting to grow more and more. Anyways.. Thanks again and cheers! :D

·
·

Thanks for the great reply! And yes, definitely try to let me know anytime you host a writing related contest. I'm pretty good about finding them if they're tagged contest, but have been known to miss them occasionally - don't let @plushzilla know though.

You can tag me in the post, but it's more guaranteed I'll see it if you send me a link on Discord moneyinfant#0486

Can I be a member of your community?
Asked by,

Sure! If you'd like to join, we are definitely looking for more people. :) Do you have any questions as to how to get started? Feel free to ask, and myself or someone else will be happy to help!

You please fell free. I must do it then inform you.

Okay! Sounds good.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Are you available or not. I informed you about my entry on Steem School.
@noor.money

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Sorry. Yeah I'm here. Overwhelmed with messages. I'm not familiar with Steem School. Not sure how that connects here to the IFC?

Now this is going to be a tricky one!

Holy is seems like these quests just keep popping up haha! I don't even know where we are with results.. and all that! I hope @charisma777 will make an update post with all that, its nice to see it all!

So the 4 sentences along with the slogan are both added together for this bonus round if I understood!? :)

·

Good, I was going to ask the same thing, about the bonus round, so a two-fer round this is going to be so much fun to read people's responses.

·

Heh.. Yeah.. It has been pretty crazy.. And.. They are separate, but you can enter them in the same post if you'd like, similar to the dancing shoes bonus round.

An interesting movement you got here, @apolymask! I haven't seen others of the same nature yet. This challenge idea coming from @bashadow, I'm sure, will be fun! Resteemed to spread the word for I will be joining, too.

·

Interesting indeed! :) And yeah so far it's been a lot of fun reading all the entries from this round! Plus I've head numerous people say they really enjoyed the round as well! Thanks for the resteem and that's cool you're going to join as well! We'd love to have you. :)

Sheathed swords sing solemnly. Searing sinew, slowly simmering somber souls. Sans selflessness, she sadly seeks superiority. Somebody save Saranac's sentients! Same selfless shit...

·

That was cool. Someone send some songs, so she sings soulfully.

·

Cool and interesting one!

You're suppose to make a separate blog post on your own page and then copy the link here in the comments, but.. We'll accept your entry. If you want to play more in future rounds though please try to follow the rules.

·
·

Gotcha. Thanks!

·
·
·

You're welcome. :)

Allison ate another appetizer. Actually, Allison abetted an atrocity.
Amazed all affected.Amen.

·

Very interesting one! Thanks for the entry. You forgot to make a blog post and share it here on the round thread, however we won't disqualify you. Just please try to follow the rules if you play more in future rounds! :)

·
·

I tend to blog once a day to avoid spam, unfortunately, I'd already written today's blog. But I was very impatient about this :P. Love the concept. I'm actually writing a book of alliteration poetry from A to Z so this was great. Thanks for consideration!

·
·
·

I see. Well. I wouldn't say blogging more than once a day is spam, in fact.. I'd say post as many times as you want in a day if it's interesting useful new content. I used to try to post 3 times a day, every single day. As a mental exercise to continually challenge myself to put out new stuff all the time. And I think that was healthy. So.. I wouldn't worry about posting numerous times a day, just try to make it meaningful. :)

Glad to hear you love the concept! We'd love to have you play in future games which is one reason why I wanted to get deeper into it and explain it more to you, I checked your profile and see your a gamer, so we could definitely use some more gamers! :D

Also that's really cool you're writing an alliteration poetry book! Perfect for this, heh. I'm also a poet as well. In fact, today I was working on a new artifact for the game.. And I was thinking of calling it the"Normie Slayer Poetry Book" Lol! Anyways.. Thanks for playing and hope to see you in future rounds as well!

·

If you're a poet, hope you're on the writer's block discord. It is a community of peers with a mix of professional and amateur writers that helps you grow.here

·
·

·

Cool. I'll check it out.

@apolymask Yes I use the chat rooms in #newbieresteemday more then I use any other, it is easier for me to keep track of things just using the one group to chat with.

I made the blog and deleted the entry here, I was going to delete, but you had already voted to it.
I wont expect a vote on the blog thank you for the one here.

I read in the comment section about making it into a blog, after I posted. My Bad. Will do that then copy paste so I don't forget what I wrote

·

Great entry jan23com! I laughed out loud at this part.

What would we wash water with, when water washes what we wear.

How do we wash water?! Hahaha.

Also interesting logo as well and I'm not totally sure what you meant in regards to brainstorming in the last part but we do have a discord up for that kind of stuff and I seem to remember seeing your name on there?

Also.. You forgot to make a blog post of your entry and copy paste the link over here, but it's alright we'll still accept this.. Please just try to remember if you play in future rounds to follow the rules.

Good Art work, looks like steemit world.

·

Thanks for appreciating! It is sort of like a steemit world. :) A virtual world within a virtual world! Lol.

·
·

A world worth a visit

·
·
·

Absolutely! :) If you ever want to visit we'd be happy to have you! I've heard from a bunch of people that they are having a lot of fun in this virtual IFC world. I'd be happy to help you get started if you were interested, it'd be cool to have a big muscle man in the contest! :D But no worries if you're not. It's not for everyone. Glad to hear you liked the artwork either way! @yeszuzia is an amazing artist. :)

Finally found familiar faces from foreign fairs!!

Is the slogan mandatory, or can I just make a word contest post?

·

The slogan quest is not mandatory, it is a bonus quest. So no you don't need to do that and you can just do the word contest one if you want to. :)

·
·

Can I do the slogan at a later time? I couldn’t wait till tomorrow to get the word game out, but I’ll have to put in a little more thought to come up with a slogan. Since it is 2am over here, I really need to get some sleep...

·
·
·

Sure! You have a whole week to finish each round. :) Hope you have a good rest!

Well this round sounds interesting and fun! I'm sure we should have some very entertaining paragraphs to read! :)

·

Yeah it does! And I agree, I have a feeling we will. I'm curious to see what the results are! Also excited about the new catch up round I'm going to post tomorrow as well that one should be interesting too. :)

@boatports90! I think this is a quick and easy round that you could come up with something ;)

Okay, round 18 entry, Not easy but still fun.

Now that's a interesting contest.Four sentence all words starts with the same letter sounds nice.I will try for sure if i can make a good one then i will take part in the competition.Thanks for sharing.@upvoted
