2011-08-04 [Sabrina Catherine]: Hello! I'm the first commenter!!! Awesome! I'm a liTtle beat tonight but I will try to knock something out :)

2011-08-04 [Calliope]: No rush. I can't see there being 3 entries all of a sudden lol

2011-08-04 [Sabrina Catherine]: Nope. Me neither lol. Even the contests that have been here forever are struggling :( sad what [Font] did to the site.... It took me hours to find it again... But now there's only one :)

2011-08-04 [Calliope]: Yeah I know. I had a friend ask if I knew any writing sites and I gave him the old URL and he came back and said he could buy it. I made a huge :O face and instantly started hunting it down. Now we just have to get more people active here again so that contests aren't struggling to find participants!

2011-08-04 [Sabrina Catherine]: exactlyz gets kinda boring if the same three people post to the same contests.

2011-08-04 [Calliope]: Are you on ET? Help spam there xD

2011-08-04 [Sabrina Catherine]: I was... Can't remember my password! Lol!

2011-08-04 [Sabrina Catherine]: ET, EP, and CH....

2011-08-04 [Calliope]: Yeah, I was on CH too... really don't even remember my username there xD Get them to email you the password for ET. I think that's gonna be the easiest place to generate interest and new members.

2011-08-07 [Annie]: I'm with you both. I'm on vacation for another week or two but I'll enter this when I'm back with more computer access. ;) Good to see two more active members around. I'm gonna go ahead and file this contest under Repeating Active contests on the Contest Section page. :)

2011-08-07 [Eleanor]: Quick question about this contest, [Calliope]: Why do you have two categories and what do you mean by Potential Animals and Finished Animals? I wouldn't know where to put an entry. Thanks.

2011-08-08 [Calliope]: Two categories? Like why poetry and prose? The Potential Animals is those who think they're going to enter. Finished Animals is for the finished entries :)

2011-08-08 [Eleanor]: Ah, okay.

2011-08-11 [Calliope]: Yay! Potentials! *rubs hands together*

2011-08-11 [Eleanor]: I wrote my story a couple of years ago, which accounts for my speed at entering it. I've never owned a dog and my experience of them is pretty limited, so this was a challenge. Hope you like it!

2011-08-11 [Annie]: :D

2011-08-11 [Calliope]: Thank you Eleanor, it looks great!

2011-09-05 [Calliope]: Yay Annie!

2011-09-05 [Annie]: Woo :)

2011-09-11 [Annie]: 3 and a possible 4! :D

2011-09-13 [Calliope]: Awesome! Sabrina are you close to having an entry ready? There's no rush but if you haven't started and are busy I might just close and get the next round ready :)

2011-09-14 [Sabrina Catherine]: Go ahead... Baby on the brain so I can't think

2011-09-14 [Calliope]: Ok! Um, Annie your's is saying permission denied. I can't get in to read it :o

2011-09-14 [Annie]: Ya, you just need to be a member of my "access forum" to view my writings. Just click here and it shall be done. :) : <joinforum:32:join> (Annie's Writings Access)

2011-09-15 [Calliope]: Ah righto, Gotcha :)

2011-09-20 [Product of a Primal Urge]: So the deadline was set at three. Does that mean it's closed to entries?

2011-09-22 [Calliope]: Nope, if you want to enter go ahead! It was roughly set at 3 unless there was more interest and since I've been busy and haven't gotten around to judging anything yet if you've got an idea forming feel free to share :)

2011-09-22 [Product of a Primal Urge]: Okay, thanks!

2011-10-11 [Calliope]: Thank you ladies for all your wonderful entries! It was very hard to pick a winner. Badges have been handed out and the next animal chosen! Good luck for round 2 everyone :)

2011-10-11 [Annie]: Woo!

2011-10-12 [Product of a Primal Urge]: Cool, thanks [Calliope].
