Great Jedi War XI - Run On Details


Teams will create their own run-on thread in the run-on category. Your lead post will include your team name, team members, and team pins. The lead post, containing team members, may not be edited unless you coordinate with the competition organizers (Mav and Sarin). If you so choose, you may paste in the prompt and rules into this lead post. This lead post is to be used just as a header, does not abide by word count restrictions, may be followed by the same poster, but also does not count as one of the three posts a member must make. Good luck.

Rules, for redundancy, are below.

  1. Teams must have a minimum of 4 participants, and a maximum of 6. For a team to qualify for placement, all posts must meet requirements in these rules and all members of the team must meet post number requirements. However, for participation alone, any individual meeting minimum post requirements will count towards his or her unit.
  2. Any member posting twice in a row will disqualify his team from placing - but not participation credit (e.g. if an entire team is dead, Johnny McDarthman can post twice in a row to get his own participation at the end of the event)
  3. Members must make 3 posts throughout the duration of the Run-On.
  4. Posts must meet the following requirements:
    -Minimum post length: 250 +/- 10 words words
    -Maximum post length: 2000 +/- 10 words.
  5. Points from placement are awarded to the unit of the placing team, irrespective of number of members on each team. E.g. if CNS Team A takes first place, and first place is worth 50 pts (example only), CNS gets 50 points, regardless of number of members on the team.
  6. Edits may occur on a post until a follow on post has been made (follow on posts include “reserving” a space). Edits may only be made by the posts original author (as in, if you have Forum Administration Rights, you cannot edit another member’s work).
  7. Members may reserve post, but no posts can occur until after the reserved post is written.
  8. Judging will follow the Fiction Rubric.

Rules slightly updated to reflect “header” post clarification. Please note: When creating your thread, make a header post with team information, as described above. Follow this header post with any real Run-On posts. This avoids conflicts with word count and other potential confusion.


If we start off with a team of 4, and circumstances leave us with a member who wishes to join late, can we add a team member in later, and how should we go about doing so if we’re allowed?

(To clarify, I’m talking about adding to the roster, not reducing or swapping it)


Hey Yacks,

After an extensive discussion involving several summit members, it has been decided that no new members may be added to existing teams that have had a post created after Sunday. New teams may be created at any time, however, for a team to place, it must have a header post up with it’s membership set by Sunday. Membership may change until Sunday midnight eastern time, which is Monday morning at 5 am UTC.


Edit: no longer relevant. Previously detailed a CS link issue.
