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 !!!
