*sigh* You know, I was really hoping to avoid making a journal like this, but certain circumstances has led me in doing so. So before I do, let me first address the elephant in the room. No, this is not a rant journal nor am I angry in anyway. And above all else, this is of NO WAY me whining in any regard. Just please read this journal and hear me out before you make any comments or pass any judgement.
on July 4th, a day after my birthday, I started a contest called "A Day With Brian." The object of this contest was really simple. Draw a character with my fursona doing whatever. In this, I was pretty open and pretty fair with what I wanted. I accepted any art form of any kind, so long as people participated. Ever since then, I've had at least 6 people join my contest. That alone is a reasonable amount of people to say the least ^^ However...there comes a problem...
When I stated the rules of the contest, I made this rule the number one crucial rule. 1.) Please...I beg of you! Only join this contest if you are certain you can submit an entry. Too many times, I've had people join my contests, and it resulted in them taking too long to make something, which later resulted in them wanting out. And that honestly is a slight blow to my hopes.
Now when I made that rule, I only said that it would "slightly" blow my hopes. But now as time went on, it seems that blow may have increased by a little bit. Now, Good news is that 3 of the 6 people have posted their entries...The Bad news is that 3 people have yet to submit their entries. Let me remind you that I made this contest since July 4th and people joined since then. We are now only a day away before the deadline and I'm still three entries short.
Now I'm sure people have their reasons for not submitting or working on their entries. Life issues, Work, Lack of Motivation, Internet struggles, etc. and I'm a very patient person when it comes to things like this...however...as I previously stated, tomorrow is the deadline and I have yet to hear word from the last three contestants. I don't want to sound like a jackass and say that "My patience is wearing thin", but I'm just politely telling those people that if there were things that were going to prevent you from participating in this contest, did you make a right decision by joining it then? It rather hurts me a little...
In conclusion, I really wanted to have some fun with this contest, but it seems that this may have been a short lived experience...But considering I'm a nice guy, I've decided to cut you a break.
For the three people who are still missing their entries, I will give you an additional 6 days. You have until THIS SATURDAY
to have something ready. This is the final chance I can give you so please don't make your decision all in vein.
Here are the runner ups so far.-ENTRIES-
