Reposted from MC. Game on in a few days:
Actually, apologies. It's actually MC:5 ; SWD:6 as of yesterday. I messed up the order of the numbers. The 2 new winners were Manton's non-Rules Rules thread, and Temple of Jawnz founder Impolyt One's Styleforum specific take on a "Downfall" Hitler going bananas in the bunker scene.
But yes, after a slow start, MC is making this a real game. I see some great gems cropping up here, and the frontrunner right now for the next prize is an MC thread. So SW&D needs to step it up if it wants to really win.
I believe that we'll make Drake's Ties, from the Drake's London site, or from any affiliate that Stock's Drake's ties, the prize for both the winner and the nominator if MC wins. If SW&D wins, probably something that MC crew will dislike intensely. I was on hiatus for a week, and the first winner was not announced for about a week following the first announcement, so we'll officially declare the middle of the month the time the voting for the monthly winner to begin. Ultimately, I will take all the votes into consideration, and make a choice re. the winners. Although gag posts are great, they will not win the monthly prize.
All of the posts in the running will be featured on a massive carousel for a week to let people mull over who should be the winner.
