Continuing from the dragon-themed prize, we want you to record a short audio clip, no more than one minute in length, telling us what you'd do if you had a real life dragon at your disposal.



You trying to tell me I don't exist? :p

And surely it isn't a good idea to have people posting responses into the topic.
Wouldn't it be fairer to simply set up an email address to submit entries to?
I mean if I had any creativity and spent time making a great submission then it just wouldn't feel right if someone viewed the topic and then ripped mine off, you know?


I had the exact same feeling...

BTW, I am mostly french/spanish speaking and my english is not 'that good'... Will the accent make any difference in the judgement ? I guess I'll send my first shot in a few mins...

Edit: where is the 'attach' button ?

On originality...
Try not to worry too much about people stealing your ideas. As stated, we're judging it largely on originality, so if an entry steals ideas without adding anything new, it won't be looked upon ad favourably as the original.

On English...
As for English skills...largely unimportant so don't think for a second you'll be judged on accents. Apart from SkyyPunk who we're promoting to Admin here.

On submitting...
In the Attachments panel when you submit a post, select Browse... find your file, then select UPLOAD. Then submit your post as usual.

That's great then... :) I'll have my brother talk for me as he is a bit better... and my son too young :(

Anyway, I'm still unable to find the attach button ... am I short-sighted ?

Rob/Other Devs: I think you will need to check the permissions for attachments in this section for regular users.

I'm glad to know I am not the only one short-sighted ... I think it is a permissions thingy...

Tadaa... Attached File  Dragon_Potential.mp3   1.37MB   192 downloads
So that's my first one, there will be more, probably!
Question: In case I submit more than one, is there a specific way to highlight the desired entry?

Just indicate in your post by saying something like 'Please judge this entry instead of my others in post 12, post 15 and post 55' etc.

There's nothing in the rules that says that you should only speak in English.
