    I have a WIP set in Australia, so I take special note of such phrases when I encounter them.

    Thank you for those three examples.

    Wonderful! Got it in the index. :) It’s not inaccurate to list it as “featuring the Family of Scoundrels” or even “featuring members of the Family of Scoundrels,” I hope? :)

    Neither one is inaccurate. I mean there does seem like there are hundreds of them now, so featuring members is probably more accurate

    Plate is finished. My husband pointed out that if you aren't a native Aussie then it's a pretty hard read, so I'm going to rewrite it (and translate all the Aussie speak) later today and then repost it on the same thread. Hopefully that'll make it easier for people to follow.

    Sorry guys, I was just so excited by the concept of being able to write a story in my local lingo, that I forgot how hard and how esoteric it would be to everyone else. Apologies if you attempted it and then just went and noped right out of there.

    EDIT: I've put the rewrite here. I would recommend reading that one. I've also taken out all the question marks at the end of the sentences because they were annoying after a while.

    @OCDatabaseSock - could you please change the link in the archive so that it takes you straight to the rewrite.

    Uh, so me again. I will stop spamming this thread...but sudden inspiration struck this afternoon and I came up with something that I like much better than The Plate.

    So presenting round 2 - The Rule Maker where four Jedi Masters try to work out the best way to word a rule so that future Jedi could never, possibly misinterpret it. [face_rofl]

    OK, just so I can be clear on exactly what's what here: does The Rule Maker supersede The Plate, or are you entering it in addition to The Plate? Because if the latter, I'd ask you to please choose one of the two to be out of competition. I just don't want to change anything in the index quite yet until I'm 100% clear on the situation. Thanks! :)

    Rule Maker supersedes The Plate. Can I leave The Plate in there as a non-competitive entry please?

    Yes, absolutely! And done. :) I changed the link for “The Plate” to go to the updated version, too.

    Hey everyone! Just by way of reminder, it looks like we have just under a week left on our Summer 2020 Challenge, which is coming due on August 21! As always, I can’t wait to see what will come in—we’ve got some awesome entries already, both in-competition and out! :cool:

    All right, everyone! Our Summer 2020 Challenge is now officially a wrap. As we received only one in-competition entry—The Rule Maker by @Kit' —I am pleased to announce that Kit’ is our winner by default. =D= (She also provided an awesome out-of-competition entry in The Plate.)

    So, Kit’, congratulations, and you get to come up with our next challenge, too! :D Please PM me with thoughts and ideas; I’m more than happy to brainstorm or just talk things through. If possible, I would love to be able to announce it during the first week or so of September. :)

    Thanks [mention]Kahara [/mention] . Plate was taken from real life and Rule Makers because I have always hated that bit of Jedi Lore. I’m glad you enjoyed them.


    Also I apologise if anyone felt shut out of the last challenge, it wasn’t my intention at all when we set it. Sorry.

    I'd like to try my luck, too, but since I'm the sock host and know what's in the list, I'll ask someone else to please choose a number for me. :)

    Eh, serves us right for trying to be too clever in coming up with a challenge, I guess ;)

    @OCDatabaseSock
    Give me #13, can't promise I'll be able to do anything with it, but I might. *Shrug*
