First off, congratulations to American--Pi and noobiess for winning last week's contest.
Now for business, with last night's announcement of the winners, the noobiess era of the GWSC has come to an end, but that does not mean that the GWSC itself has to come to an end. The GWSC helps to keep spriting alive, so let's help it stay alive. I have already made this proposal in last week's poll, but figured I should open it up for discussion here.
I propose that in order to make it so that no one person has to carry the burden of hosting the GWSC week after week, we have the host shift every week. How this would work is that the winner of one week's contest would host the following week's, creating a chain of winners hosting contests. What would be required from each week's host would be to come up with an idea for a contest, post the contest thread on Sunday, and then post the poll thread on the following Sunday. It is fairly non-committal, and the only real task would be to come up with an idea for the contest. If all else fails, one could simply have a simple retype or fusion contest. I would not mind acting as overseer of this new format, making sure that it runs smoothly, and if the host bails, I wouldn't mind stepping in to keep things moving. Or, someone else (maybe someone who's participated in the GWSC more than me) could volunteer to do this as well if they want.
Please discuss your thoughts on the mater. Do you think this would work? Would you be willing to make this change? Do you have any comments or suggestions? Hopefully by next Sunday we will have come to a consensus and can resume the GWSC.
