Barryvan Compo: Round 6 Begins!
« on: March 31, 2008, 06:34:11 »
Space Walk has won the first round of the Barryvan Compo. His entry, "The Depth" narrowly beat Nygen Dale and Nahkranoth's tracks. Congratulations, Space Walk! And thanks to all the other entrants, too. There were some really hot entries.


The Barryvan Compo is changing.
I think that a two-month turnaround is just too long. So I've changed it to a month-long compo: two weeks of entries, and two weeks of voting. Once again, entry is open to anyone who's interested for this round. Check it out at http://test.pbc.wa.edu.au/compo. This month's inspiration is a photo taken by Karloskarmi:



You can write whatever you like around this image. (Thanks to Novus for the suggestion to use a photo!)

I hope to see you all there. And once again, congratulations to Space Walk!

Man! That's a nice repeat! On this photo I can clearly see some water, and a bunch of jumblies in a sieve :D
And I really like how you changed the look of the site.
Maybe it's not right to say it here but I voted for aGp on 1st place cuz he's the only one who have read (and maybe understood?) the poem right (as for me). Aww, now I'll go babbling about the past. Forgive the old fool :D

LOL! I didn't even think about the Jumblies in a Sieve connection! :) Oh well.

Glad you like the new look of the site. :)

Yah, It reminds me of MAD magazine where the farm guys are playing music on a broom with string, a clothes cleaner, a jug until the angry house wife comes and takes all her cleaning stuff.

That was me. I mis-read the rules, and Barry felt guilty about it afterwards. Hence the clarification.
And no, I'm not back, whatever the hell "back" means. :)

Yeah. Although I must admit, Novus is a pretty good hair-stroker. My underarms never felt so good!
