    POSTFEST IX(Brewfest 2008): Open Category!!!

    Hello all!

    It is with great gladness that I make the announcement that Postfest has returned! Not only has it returned, but it will become a regular feature from now on. As its name suggests, Postfest is a “festival of posting”, and what better time of the year is there to celebrate such a festival of posting. Why, during the Greyhawk festivals of course, and so this Postfest begins once again during Brewfest(October 1-7) of this year. Everyone will have one month(until Nobember 7th in this case) to submit an entry for each Postfest, so get to writing already! The next Postfest will begin during Needfest(January 1-7), the next one during Growfest(April 1-7), and the next one during Richfest(July 1-7) so keep an eye out for future announcements.

    Each Postfest usually will have a theme, but because it has been some time since the last Postfest, this one will be an “OPEN CATEGORYPostfest so that everyone can get their feet wet so to speak. Anyone who wants to can submit an article on just about anything, just so long as it has to do with Greyhawk of course. If you are not sure what to write about, think of something YOU like about Greyhawk and write about that. People always write best about something that they know about and like.

    And now a few pointers for everyone: Be sure to at the very least SPELL CHECK your article. Then, look it over for any other mistakes that may still be there. To submit your finished article, follow the Submit Article link here http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=Submit_News , cut-n’-paste your article into the appropriate area and follow the instructions. Be sure to write a very short description of what your entry is about- a nice little sound bite blurb to put in the first section of the Submit Article page. Also, in the article title space be sure to type “Postfest:” followed by the title of your article.

    If anybody has any questions about anything regarding Postfest, please post them here.

    This postfest begins Oct 1-7. When does it end? In other words, what is our deadline to post before the official judging begins?

    Don

    ps - Oh, duh. I re-read the announcement and see that we have one month, presumably until Nov. 7th.

    Yeah, it's kinda hidden there at the end. Should be higher up (ie, "postfests will begin on brewfest, etc, etc, etc, and run for one month...".)

    My postfest article is in

    Alrighty,

    I got my humble submission in. The preview feature was wonky, but I think it got in OK. Here's a preview: I am posting a sequel to Hell on Oerth (called creatively Hell on Oerth II).

    Again, I like to do stat light, story heavy articles. Hope this is found useful. So how many article do we have in the hopper for this postfest?

    I checked your article and there is no text in it whatsoever. This is of course the problem we are having with the preview feature of the Submit Article page right now.

    So, follow Mortellan's directions and e-mail your submission to editors@canonfire.com and it will get taken care of.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I hope they are released slow, one at a time like the upf, rather than as a big wad.

    That's definitely going to be done for the next one. I need to bug Don or Gary about getting the Postfest entries up for viewing.

    Yo! Don! Gary! Happy

    We only have one submission this time. Sad Now that more people know that Postfest is back, hopefully more people will submit offerings this next time around. The community has chosen the topic(Inns & Taverns), and I have added some general guidelines. We'll see what happens. I am cautiously optimistic. Happy

    EDIT: There is more than 1 submission and they will be compiled and posted in this new forum soon.

    Thread closed.
