Enter Quibblo Story Contest #8

How about a story combining gift-giving with a little romance? (This doesn’t need to be written in the first-person perspective.) Here’s the topic of our latest story contest:

It’s December, 1870. You live in a large bustling city and your family is quite poor, but you still have found the perfect gift for your beloved. Your goal is to find the proper time and place to present it in the coming weeks. One small issue: your “beloved” doesn’t even know you exist.

Give it an interesting title (don’t include “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), and remember to:

  • Check spelling and grammar
  • Hit “Enter” twice after every paragraph, for readability
  • Tag it with SC8 and make sure it’s finished
  • Share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo

On December 11, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Now, get started!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, December 9, 2012.

Thanks to all of you who entered Story Contest #7. All your stories were wonderful and left me salivating (per my instructions), and I’m sad that I can only choose three. (Read all the entries, if you haven’t already. Clever channeling of Shakespeare, BurbleBlops.) Great job including recipes, too! Congrats to the three winning entries:

Party-up your profile image!

Quibblo will reach a major milestone in the next several days (probably Sunday, November 18, or Monday, November 19): One million friends! Thanks to all Quibblonians for helping us reach this historic mark. What an awesome community you all helped build!

Since these things don’t come around too often, let’s celebrate! As soon as you see Quibblo reach a million or more friends (shown at the top of the “Friends” box on Quibblo’s profile, then:

  • “Party up” your profile image by adding a hat and confetti or changing it to someone celebrating (and feel free to put it up early so it’s ready to go)
  • Comment on Quibblo’s profile with what food you’re bringing and what music you want played.

I’ll create a master list of all your party tunes afterwards. Virtual party! Woo hoo!

Thanks to all of you who entered Story Contest #6. There were many good ones which were left unfinished, which is too bad because they were off to a good start. Fantasy is a tough topic to do well, though, so congratulations to everyone who completed a story — and to those who created a book cover! Kudos to the three winning entries:

Earlier this week, Qlockwork and his talented team rolled out some more enhancements to Quibblo that you I know you’ll appreciate:

  • iPhone- and iPad-compatible quiz results. Quiz results are no longer in Flash (which is blocked by many mobile devices). Now, feel free to take and view quizzes on your iPhone or iPad, and get the same user experience as on a desktop. Woo hoo!
  • Quizzes and stories under “All-Time Popular.” In the same box on the home page, you can now see a list of “all-time popular” items, broken out by quizzes AND stories.
  • Time frames on the “Recently Popular” box. In the main quiz/story box on the home page, you can now choose a time frame (day, week, or month) when viewing quizzes and stories that are “recently popular,” “top rated,” and “recently created.”

If you’re happy and you know it… well, go to Qlockwork’s profile page and leave him and his team a big thank you!
