KIDPUB HOUSES (FINAL HOUSE NAMES + TEST BEGINNING TODAY)

in fighting Black Scythe agents

 

The KidPub House project is COMPLETED!!!! After many weeks and many polls and many suggestions, we are ready to do the final test. AS SOON AS THIS POST IS POSTED THE TEST

BEGINS AND YOU CAN BEGIN EARNING POINTS. YOUR POINTS GAINED BEFORE DO NOT COUNT. The points you earn now do count.  

 

The final name for House #1 is Land.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED

I was glad that it worked with the set of Land, Sea, and Sky, but I wanted people to vote on what they wanted, which I why I didn't let it win automatically (which would be unfair of me). Just that to

answer your accusation, Red Zero. And also to answer another question, I did not put a restriction of the amount of words for poetry. When I said "more than a few lines" I just meant that it should not

be something someone randomly scribbled in five seconds just to get points. I did not mean to say short poems are not allowed.

 

HOW TO GET STARTED

1. Join a House (Land, Sea, or Sky. You can choose which House you want. To join, post what House you joined on this post)

2. Check out your House forum (I have created new threads under the 'Guild' section. Find your House thread and post that you have joined the House)

3. Get writing! Every time you post something, go to your House thread and post what you did and how many points you got. (A list of points is below)

 

Remember that this is a test so you can suggest changes if something isn't working out.  If you have any questions please ask.

 

POINTS

 

Posting a short story (no clogging allowed. Also announcements like this are not a story): 20 points (if it's over 2,000 words). 45

well land/sea/sky was my idea, it can stand for whatever you associate with each. i suggested earlier that it could correlate to body/mind/spirit, for one.

The way you speak is

The way you speak is defensive and looks down on me. Your tone also discounts "just a few lines" of poetry. The system could be improved, but oh well. I shall be joining Sea.

Okay, with this post I am

Okay, with this post I am not intending to offend or attack anyone, so I'm sorry if I do. Can we stop fighting? You two keep making jabs at each other, and I think it isn't the best way to work out whatever the problems are. It's just not how I think people want kidpub to work, and you are probably both pretty annoyed right now. Neither of you are blameless, so let's try to work this out, okay? I do agree that when Predator-6 said "a few lines of poetry" it was easy to misunderstand the meaning. However, when SilverMoon posted their comment, it could have been interpreted as rude based on the wording, so you are both at fault, I guess. I'd just appreciate if you guys would stop fighting because it worrys me...
Sorry if this was intrusive or annoying.

Do you know what Angelica said, when she read what you'd done? She said: "You've married and Icarus. He's flown to close to the sun."

I will not make my dislike a secret, but we have aligning goals, so we are both trying to work for it. Nevertheless, the dislike is there and will cause us to clash every so often. It will not derail the project-- that is, so long as I am not provoked.

I was trying to decide between sea and sky but seeing as how sky already has so many members I'll go with sea to try to even it out a little. So yeah, team sea for me (haha that rhymed don't judge me I'm sick)

For completing a novel, is it a novel or a book/story? Because a novel must meet a specific word count.

Posted by Red Zero on Mon, 05/15/2017 - 16:25
yeah, this is true. a

yeah, this is true. a standard novel is 70,000 words minimum but i feel like since this is a kid's site the word count should be lower. A typical YA novel is 30,000 words for example. 

not to say that kids can't write 70,000+ words. (cough Max lmao)

LAND FOR LIFE!

Posted by Julia on Mon, 05/15/2017 - 17:03
Honestly I'm debating not

Honestly I'm debating not joining either because there's really no point in picking whichever team if they don't have some values or attributes (like I believe was originally going to happen?) Also, the incredible unbalance between the houses aren't going to work out well.

yo. uh ive been thinking and without actual attributes to each house, wont people just join whichever house their friends are in? or the house that is most likely to win points?

Posted by Elliot on Wed, 05/17/2017 - 05:09
If there WERE attributes, on

If there WERE attributes, on the other hand, 90% of everyone left from Taco would just be in the "Angsty Poetry" house.

yeah that's a good point, I can work on making a good list of attributes/values/whatever, since these house names were my idea.
