Aurora frozen in stars;
twinkling shimmering
off the glistening guns

Really? JENNY MURPHY and KEITH MURPHY? I have a feeling you're using fucking alts.

Jacob_Richardson   Post Author wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:02pm

Its not alts. Its called family members bro.

Jacob_Richardson   Post Author wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:03pm

My moms side is all Murphys. check towards the top. ryan murphy is my cousin. and Moody and richardson is my other side

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:04pm

Maybe, but the time interval of these posts are bothering me. But whatever. If you win, you win. But It pisses me off that you're going to win by a haiku that's not even correct.But if the person who owns the site wants to change the rules, that is his choice.

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:08pm

Because putting them togheter, editing them into making a related haiku is "stealing"? Yeah. Thanks. Seriously, If Jacob wins, he wins. I'm upset, obviously. But who wouldn't have been after getting so many votes.

BR   Supporter wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:08pm

You didn't even create your own haiku, you just stole lines from other games and pasted them in the lines of a haiku

BR   Supporter wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:08pm

And you didn't edit them. They are direct quotes

Jacob_Richardson   Post Author wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:10pm

Well dude i knew you reported me and honestly I would have gave you a comment paying my respects for competing with me. But It just struck me as crazy that you reported my haiku when my is directly about info released for borderlands 2. Obviously yours was for humor but you didn't see me jumping on it and I didn't try to turn you in for it either.

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:10pm

I edited it to fit with the syllables. The direct quote is "Cut the flesh". I wrote "Cut flesh.". It's Borderlands related, and I thought it fits with the punchline. I get it, you hate it.

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:11pm

I'm sorry jacob. I don't mean to be angry on you. I've just been trying too hard. I'm really sorry.

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:11pm

Congratulations though. I hope we can put this behind us.

BR   Supporter wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:12pm

"Paint the man, cut the lines" is from amnesia. Which has no relation to borderlands. It has to do with performing surgery on people.

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:13pm

And yes BR, I know. That's why the punchline is there. Don't get your knickers in a twist like I did. I'm bad enough for going topsy-turvy on Jacob.

BR   Supporter wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:14pm

I know, just getting defensive. My bad.

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:14pm

No, it was all my fault. I shouldn't have been so upset. I guess I didn't know enough people.

Jacob_Richardson   Post Author wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:15pm

It's okay and thanks. congrats to you too man. It was a lot of votes and im sure you have lost equally as much sleep as i have i havent slept in almost 52hours. I wish you good luck in all the future prizes that im sure they will give away. I didn't hate your haiku by the way. It was clever.

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:17pm

Thanks. I actually found yours fantastic. But I was really bothered by the invalidness. I thought I had won until I saw the whole rule changes thing. And I didn't really lose any sleep because of my time zone.

Jacob_Richardson   Post Author wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:22pm

Well I have actually put up on feedback for the site a suggestion a few days ago to jdodson about making the contests apart of a steam community giveaway on steamgifts. Like you register for the site and then can get added to the steam group. So that way hopefully its less vague. I to was also confused on the symbol things i mean i knew how many is in a normal haiku but everyone who had already posted had some slightly off so i wondered if that was even a requirement at all. I had two versions made and went with the one that simply sounded better in regards to applying to nature and communicating it back to something in the real world.

Jacob_Richardson   Post Author wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:23pm

syllables* sorry my typing is horrible right now from all the sugar and caff. I've gone through to stay awake.

Travis   Admin wrote on 09/15/2012 at 08:28pm

First off, thanks to both of you for resolving this dispute amicably. It's always better for all parties when cool heads prevail.

I helped jdodson come up with the contest and, in hindsight, we should have been a lot more clear with the rules. It's our first giveaway, so mistakes were bound to happen. We decided to err on the side of acceptance rather than denial since we weren't clear to begin with, and some invalid haikus had been submitted with a lot of votes already.

In the future we will be more clear about things, and we had considered a private group giveaway through SteamGifts but decided to go with one to foster creativity :)

At any rate, I just made a post about this here: http://cheerfulghost.com/panickedthumb/posts/584

We have some confirming to do over the next 24 hours, and then we'll make the official announcement!
