Checklist Challenge
for February Review Day


You may remember last year when @Panikos introduced the first "Checklist Challenge" to a Review Day - it was so much fun, I thought I'd host one myself. Today we're having another round with a new list of challenges. If you attempt the challenge there is a chance for point prizes - so be sure to read the instructions!

NOTE: it is less complicated than it looks, just tackle a couple of the challenges and make a post below saying which ones you've done - it's that easy.

Number of Challenges Completed 12 (maybe 13?) met, 6 reviews
Review a first chapter
Review an article Of Hawks & Humans
Review a work by a new member
Review a poem with one stanza The nature of us or In a Dark Room. I'm unsure about this one, as the first will most likely be edited to have stanzas, and the other has indents that sort of imply stanzas. I defer the decision on this to the judge.
Review a short story It Was Tolerance, They Told Us. We are Peacekeepers, They Said.
Review something in the fantasy genre A Pocketful of Posies Chapter 21
Review a chapter from the green room Life or Death Chapter 6

Alright, I think this is my final score! I was very efficient in meeting multiple criteria per review, but not so efficient in the actual writing of said reviews... :) Then again, up to this point I haven't written more than one review in a day anyways, so that's not too surprising. Thanks for the challenge, alliyah - it was lots of fun!

Winner's Announced!


Wow wonderful job everyone! I'm so pleased that you all took the time to do this competition - and hopefully you were able to have some experience reviewing pieces that you might not normally gravitate towards.

I was fairly strict in what "counted" as meeting different categories, as well as observing all the rules I listed at the top - so there were unfortunately a few reviews that I was not able to count towards challenges, but I still really appreciate the effort. :) If you have questions about how I counted different reviews please send me a PM and I would be happy to let you know.

So without further ado - according to my calculations:

The winners are....

Third Place - Traves

Second Place - OofOof1

First Place - Paperforest


Congratulations! Paperforest & OofOof1 please let me know which pieces you would like a review on, I'll be sending the point prizes out later today.

Thank you for competing and reviewing! @paperforest, @EternalRain, @tgirly, @Traves, @OofOof1
