The Winner of Yeah! Swing It!

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 8, 2010, 5:00 PM
It's been a long, interesting, and amazing run, ladies and gents, but all things must come to an end. Yeah! Swing it! began and ended as a small OCT with a close-knit community that continued to amaze us and make us laugh. Even now as the chat room exists about a year later, people continue to frequent it. Artists have grown and they've come and gone, but in the end one stands victorious:

Congratulations, :iconcloudgateau:, you are the winner of Yeah! Swing it!

That's right, you swingin' cats, Biggs and Baron expect everybody (that means at gunpoint) to congratulate Cloud for sticking it out to the end and contributing to this wild roller coaster of an OCT, and we will attempt to divide up the booty among the contestants who made it to the last round.

You know, you should start telling the contestants the exact dates you will update instead of forcing them to check every day for updates/results. Right now, this OCT is very disorganized and I'm starting to get the sense that the people who started this have all run away from YSI. Just because things aren't going as planned, doesn't mean it's okay to drop it altogether. Finish what was started. Seriously, suck it up.

Well now I have to disagree with you in some parts. I don't believe the judges and hosts have abandoned us at all, some are busy with their lives and have much more important things to do then a silly oct, and sometimes given the circumstances I believe I should respect that and be patient. Myself and some other contestants assumed the due date and just worked with it, it IS much easier to be given a date but at least during this round we worked with what information we had (and I'm not sure but I think someone contacted one of the judges and asked). Things ARE going according to plan from the little information as a contestant that I have, they are just progressing slowly. You don't see this account completely abandoned, and if I really needed any kind of info I could easily contact any judge and I'm sure they'd respond ASAP.

I do agree that it is unorganized but then I go back to the argument of the judges having busy lives. I'm not sure if you're a fan or just some random bystander but don't be rude, telling the judges to suck it up is just mean, at least say it in a nice way. :I

TL;DR That's just your opinion, man.

Hmm... I see your point. Then again, I've never seen an OCT where the people who host it randomly drop it whenever it's convenient. I agree they must have their own lives/more important things to do; however, it's still their responsibility to let everyone know if that's true.
No, someone I know did contact them... a week ago? And no, they still have not responded.

Hey, everyone agreed that Corrupted Core was horrible, but at least they went on until the very end >.>

Maybe it's "mean", but I don't think being nice will have any effect at this point. But I guess I could put it this way: "Please finish what you've started."

I definitely appreciate that what you are saying, you are doing so with the desire to get this contest moving; I'd love for it to continue, but, this is probably not a good time to try and force it to carry on. A lot of the contestants are not ready yet, more than half of them.

Hopefully round 2 just comes to a fitting close, and round 3 will see things starting to go more smoothly.
