What if we rank each other by our total word count? Or do you think this would put pressure on people? You don't have to post your count up.. whatever you think, mods.

That would be a great motivator! But, we have a different plan that is ready to set in motion soon, that would also be a great motivator. *Kenzie! I will be mad if you spill the beans before the end of the month!*

However, your idea might work as well. Perhaps people could ask to be added to the list (maybe by putting an astrik at the end of their topic title, and once they are given their rank, they can add that to the topic title if they want as well)
But that way, we would know if people wanted to participate or not in the ranking system, so that people who would feel too much pressure wouldn't have to deal with it, because they wouldn't even have to be listed in the ranks at all.

I don't know. What do you think, Kenzie? If Yea, comment so people in this group know your opinion, then send me a PM and we can work out any details, okay?

Hmmm ... well, I dunno. I myself don't really like being ranked on how many words I write, because sometimes I don't have time to count all the words/post them up and wouldn't be accurate in my placing. Plus I find the whole ideal majorly stressful.

I think, Roni, we should just stick to our original idea. That's kind of like ranking--but not really.

And it's only a couple more weeks that they have to wait, so....

How about this, we do what you and I had oringally planned, and then--afterwards--if everyone still wants to rank people we will.


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

k ... stupid, stupid suprises. :)

Sorry, this one is cool, trust me. You guys are going to ... well, hopefully it won't cause any unhappiness to those who ... anyways, I'm sure you guys will like this. ☺

I love how I understood exactly what you were talking about, Kenzie, but nobody else gets it.


message 10: by Mimi (new)

Mimi (mimibird) well what about the people who dont post their word count? *like me, who cant type*


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

well . . . i'm sort of failing miserably right now . . .


message 12: by Roni, Bigfoot makes an excellent character (new)

Roni (v_a_b) | 727 comments Mod
We'll see, after our big surprise. And if we do make the rankings, you don't have to be part of them.


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

>< i hate surprises.


message 14: by Mimi (new)

Mimi (mimibird) uh.... oaky?

I personally really don't like the idea of ranks. This group is supposed to be about setting a goal and reaching it, and encouraging others to make theirs. That's also why I was against doing a group story.

To message #9: I know. After the end of this month they'll all know and go, "OH!" LOL, can't wait. ☺


message 16: by Roni, Bigfoot makes an excellent character (last edited Jan 15, 2009 06:10PM) (new)

Roni (v_a_b) | 727 comments Mod
Yeah... you do have a point there.

As far as the group story thing... sometimes it can get the creative juices flowing. Perhaps I should make a rule for the thing that just randomly sprung up? That way, it wouldn't be overly debated.


message 17: by Mimi (new)

Mimi (mimibird) please! me and ray are really getting into this!!


message 18: by Kenzie, Help feed the hungry. Donate to 30 Hour Famine! (new)

Go ahead. It's fine with me.

I'm soooo confuzzled!! What do you mean, rank each other by our total word count?? *drowns in a sea of confuzzlement*


message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

k what u do is you add up how many words u did in, say, a week. if you have the most words, you win


message 23: by Roni, Bigfoot makes an excellent character (new)

Roni (v_a_b) | 727 comments Mod
But then again, I think we know who would win every week *looks at Dee*


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

oh yes, true ... maybe we could sort people out by their daily minimum.


message 25: by Kenzie, Help feed the hungry. Donate to 30 Hour Famine! (new)

Kenzie | 1305 comments Mod
Maybe judge them according to who goes the most over their word count?


message 26: by Roni, Bigfoot makes an excellent character (new)

Roni (v_a_b) | 727 comments Mod
Or perhaps just wait to see how our system goes, Kenzie. Wasn't that what we were going to do in the first place?


message 27: by Sella (last edited Jan 16, 2009 04:54PM) (new)

Sella Malin I like Kenzie's idea, judging who goes the most over their word count..but maybe we should just wait for Roni and Kenzie to reveal their secret system.


message 28: by Roni, Bigfoot makes an excellent character (new)

Roni (v_a_b) | 727 comments Mod
Not just me! Me and Kenzie! It was actually initially her idea...


message 29: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Oh ok, sry, I didn't know that!! Let me go edit that...


message 30: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments i love Ever, Sella. GLC rocks. :D


message 31: by Kenzie, Help feed the hungry. Donate to 30 Hour Famine! (new)

Kenzie | 1305 comments Mod
Yeah, I think we should just stick to our plan first Roni. Then if they still want to they can do that. I doubt they'd want to, though. Considering our idea is awesomeness. LOL


message 32: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments JUST TELL US ALREADY!!!!!!!!
