Aww, too bad. You might want to read these all. Some are just excellent..

You could always start another contest, maybe one with a winter or holiday theme?

Not to put too fine a point on it, no1, but I do leave all comments except my stalker's. I turn off comments only after there have been none left (again, except those by he-who-is-obsessed) for a day or so, since it's clear that nobody cares about the post anymore.

Tell you what; if it means that much to you, tell me which of my posts you want to comment on and I'll see what I can do. None of them? OK, there we are then.

Didn't see your entry in the contest, no1. Wish I did, 'cos it surely would have won. Deleting my stalker's comments had nothing to do with the contest; it's something I always do. If you'd left me a -2 it might have changed the outcome but that didn't happen. Next time, eh?

---------------------------------------------

I don't see what my participation, or lack thereof, has to do with the subject at hand, vis a vis deleting any reviews that hurt your feelings.

You'll never see me deleting any reviews, and while I haven't posted anything recently, I'd be happy to repost my old catalogue with all the reviews intact, this despite the fact that while I am a quality poster with a long history of providing honest constructive reviews meant to inspire and encourage my fellow users, I have been persecuted in the reviews on my posts with all manner of unprovoked and unwarranted attacks and disparaging remarks. However, for the sake of posterity and maintaining the integrity of the site with its original vision, I will happily leave these unfair and malign statements, complete and unaltered. Unlike Skrapmetal. For shame.

As you like it. You are the Gruemistress; the decision is yours to make.

I accept the title of Gruemaster for the coming year. The once and future Gruemaster, as it were. For the 11 months to come I will prepare for the next grUeBERfest, when a new Gruemaster will earn the gory Crown of Skulls and the bloody Femur Scepter.

I know this honor is unearned. It's an internet writing contest. Deal.

Gather around the fire and have a sip. Tell creepy stories till the fire goes out.

Rules for GrUeBERfest 2012.

There are no rules. There are no rounds. New, multiple, or previous works acceptable.

Post "GrUeBERfest" in the subject line (along with the story title) for each story you post during the month of October.

I want to draw attention to the "Delete" comment feature available here. Use it during GrUeBERfest 2012 if you wish.

The story with the highest rating wins. What? Will there be a prize? Well sure!

First grUeBERfest on the new Uber with the shiny new "DELETE" feature, and it was a grand social experiment in my view. IF there had been more than one entry with a perfect 2 Rating, then there would have been "runners up" and prizes for all. :)

You deleted some comments, which is clearly acceptable.

You won, no amount of "I must decline the honor" will change it a whit.

I must decline the honor, sadly. I deleted something like 14 of whysenheimer's reviews, all -2s of course, as I do not allow him to leave comments on my posts. He is obsessed with me, as you can see below. Bart hasn't provided the selectivity to filter reviews by user, so I let the posts go for a while and then delete his incessant "lol"s in a clearly futile attempt to get him to cease his constant drooling over the thought of my body. Eventually no one except him is leaving comments on the post, so I turn off the ability to comment and delete his stupid blather. I figured everyone who was going to vote on it had already done so.

But to be fair, the rating on my grUeBERfest post should have been lower. If you factor in all the -2s my stalker dropped on it, the rating would have been about -0.9. It was only written as a response to a Uberboard message about having a ziptie write a story, and it's really not very good. There are more deserving entries, I think we all agree, and I'd ask that you name one of them the winner. Thanks for your understanding.

Submitted by Shlongy at 2012-11-01 14:56:01 EDT (#)

Not for nothing, but Skrap has been known to delete reviews and ratings with -2's on them. I demand an investigation.

Submitted by pen_name at 2012-11-01 13:26:32 EDT (#)

What kind of voting system was used? Would a 2.0 on 1 rating have beaten the 1.81 on 11?

Seems like a weak victory to me.
