T01

Start of the Challenges. General Rule: 1 Entry per participant. Open voting, with 1 Vote each.

General remark concerning all challenges listed below: Occasionally a Poll remained open. In 1 or 2 cases the poll-results may have been effected by votes cast after closing. For official results the posts in the discussion thread made by the person organising the Challenge were leading.

T01. An One-of-a-kind Theme. Caused major confusion among the participants.

Originally Challenges were apparently held as often as manageable by the participants..
T02. The Poll remained open and preview was not enabled; voting results are not viewable.
T03. The 7-way Tie-break resulted in another 2-way Tie. The 2 were declared joined winners.

T04. The Poll remained open and currently shows a 2-way Tie, perhaps the result of a out-of-time vote.
T05. These Polls also remained open, with no visible effect. Again; for official results the posts in the discussion thread made by the person organising the Challenge are leading.

T07. Instead of a theme each story must include the under T06 mentioned phrase, but not be the title. For this occasion the stories can be 108 words long.
