Hi Nidhi,

As per the announcement, the topic for the first segment was to be announced on Sunday night. Sachin seems to have forgotten the time line or got busy with something else. Maybe, you could choose a topic to get the contest to move on or else the entire schedule as planned by him, will be a dud.

Moreover, since this has got grammar and linguistic skills as a judgment criteria, may I know who would be on the panel?

Regards,

WP

Wizard prince : I have neither forgotten nor was busy yesterday, i was waiting for the appropriate discussion forum to be created. I got a confirmation on that today morning.

I had also commented in the blog : http://www.royalchallengers.com/ee/index.php/fan-club-blog/comment/red-gold-blog-a-thon-contest/ (5th comment from the bottom), i suppose u didnt go through all the comments.

Now that we have the discussion forum ready will post the topic very soon

I have no doubt about the fairness aspect and I will happily write a blog on the topic without caring about the judgment. However, just wanted to know smile. Even if you be the only judge, still, I have no problem smile.

Thanks for the info Nidhi. This is a great criteria and I am glad it will not only cover every aspect of writing, but, also enhance the qualitative aspect of writing too. Wish everyone good luck with the contest!
