Can I just ask, how are points accrued? What stats, votes are taken into consideration?

Voting Conservative because you're angry with Labour is like sawing your balls off because your trousers are too tight.

Try Jalapenoman's $100 Advice and Guidance For New Spoof Writers

In the Writer's forum there was a post by editor Mark late last year about the points system.

Can't remember which post it is, though!

Try a new post about this in Writers, I'm sure either Mark or someonje who remembers the exact thread will be able to post the answer for you.

BTW, welcome!
Enjoying reading your Spoofs...

QM - Thanks for pulling that item up. I really thought it had gone forever. I just read through it again and it's the best guideline for spoofing ever committed to print.

When new writers ask for advice I always used to point them towards this article. It says it all.

To J-Man - again, thanks for taking the time and expending the effort in doing this. Personally, I learned a great deal from it.

Although you wouldn't think so looking at my stories.

Really pleased to find that this is still available. Now I know where to point people who ask the questions.

Again, thanks.

Sincerely

Skoob.

RIP

The original got pulled during the troll wars when that nutter spoiled the forum posting.

Agree with you Skoob, it's still the dog's bollox.
