The Literature Judges are those who judge official Elftown competitions that fall under the 'Literature' (prose/poetry). Their jobs include critiquing a piece of work and helping the Council decide on the winners.

Please do not message the Judges and ask them to vote for a specific piece. They will be judging based on quality, craftsmanship, grammar and spelling. Soliciting votes is frowned upon and may get your entry removed from said contest.

The Literature Judges do not watch the entry pages for the prose and poetry competitions; they are sent all the entries minus the entrants' usernames so that judging is anonymous.


The Literature judges are:

Illustrious [Linderel]
Illustrious [wicked fae mage]
Illustrious [Teufelsweib]
Illustrious [hanhepi]
trainee [Ravendust]
trainee [Doormat]
trainee [Eyden13]

2011-07-10 [Alexi Ice]: People, please.

2011-07-10 [Aradon Templar]: To clarify the situation at little: the judging process takes a long time not simply because the judges want to give each entry due consideration, or discuss each entry, but mostly because discussion on the internet is incredibly slow. Unless judges find themselves all on at the same time, which is a burden we can't expect them to meet, discussion proceeds at about the pace of one statement from each judge per day, as they check and update the entry evaluations. Even when the entries have been narrowed down to the final two or three, reaching a consensus and discussing particular merits of each entry is going to take a long time. This delay is not because the judges are not working on the contest, or because anyone is lazy or slacking. It's just the way internet discussions work. We've all got to be patient.

2011-07-10 [kians mummy]: But what if a judge doesnt come back

2011-07-10 [SilverFire]: Then they're dropped. We don't sit around waiting for them.

2011-07-10 [Akayume]: Sammie, the more you dwell on it, the longer it will seem to take for you. Take a deep breath, do something else, and be pleasantly surprised when the results are announced. (:

2011-07-10 [Alexi Ice]: [Aradon Templar] - Wonderfully said, I must say!

2011-09-01 [Roma]: I need the link to the prose submissions again. I lost it. Le whoops

2021-12-27 [Sunrose]: Oooh soo scared :P

2021-12-28 [Mortified Penguin]: You have called my bluff, sir. I will diminish and go into the West. *spreads his mighty penguin wings and flies Northeast for twenty feet, before getting caught in a small shrub*

2021-12-28 [Sunrose]: I don't know why, but this seems like a white rabbit society comment.
