About the Boddunan contest...

Category: Feedback 4 years ago

We have the second contest on now...I have a few thoughts about the same...

I feel that having to write 5 posts with 60 words minimum which totals to more than 300 words to me is difficult, other than being repetitive.If I write one post of 60 words and continue with another it would not make any sense...I may write at the most 250 words on the topic being discussed without repeating myself  to make a good post, more than that I guess it is rather difficult because of the limited scope . After that one post, I would have nothing more to add except repeat what I have already said in a different format ,words and sentences..

The topic itself is such that one can hardly discuss it for 5 days , so members who wish to qualify will repeat themselves as I have seen it happen in the previous contest, so what is the point ? Instead if the number is brought down to 2- 3, it may be more productive and we may not have to read through them ( old wine in new bottles ) again and again.


Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    I think it is for the participants to ensure that their offerings do not sound repetitive.

    As far as scope is concerned it is again the

    members who have to

    widen the horizon.

    I agree with you .Chinmoy, participating  Members should ensure their posts are not repetitive.

    The contest has nothing to discuss about but post one's thoughts. The way the things are going on one can write 10 posts of 60 words in one day but here one has to write just 5 in 7 days.

    I totally agree with you Chinmoy , but that has not happened and it is another forum post where (some ) members simply fill posts repeating themselves , so I have said what I wanted to say...

    That could be true for other posts which are not for any monetory gains but the ones that will repeat themselves will not be included in this case

    You probably have a brilliant mind and an abundant knowledge to write 10 posts of 60 words in a single day on the subject that is being discussed now.....I will not be able to do that !

    You know exactly what I mean, no one can make 10 posts in a single day on the same subject without repeating themselves, if you think you can do it , you are either extremely knowledgeable or just hamming your way...

    I know what you mean but the way you are writing in this thread repeatedly on same subject you will soon surpass 10 posts :) without repeating the words even once. :).

    Is this a contest too? I thought not....I am speaking only about contests whereas you seem to have misunderstood...
