    >:)

  • brisingr

    well i still have a chance then, a small chance

  • Chris

    Yeah, a few of the things were sent in austere file types. >_>

  • Mike

    Just a quick heads up, the results may not be tonight and could possibly be tomorrow, only because we had a ton of audio/video clips and I’m having to convert all of them, upload all of them, and it’s more complicated than it sounds. I have yet to figure out how to convert two of the songs to MP3 so they can be played. I’ll keep you updated, but we’ll post the winners no later than tomorrow evening!

  • Chris

    I’ve judged everything and have the results ready. Just waiting for Mike to upload the audio now.

    I treated everything that was sent in as a carol. As long as it had to do with Inheritance, it qualified, really. 😛

  • Terminator

    tht’d suk

  • brisingr

    chris do poems count? I sent in a poem like thing, it was no song. Do i get disqualified?

  • InheritanceLover

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I WANT ALL OF THE PRIZES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chris

    email me at [email protected]

  • slammusaran

  • Evarinya

    Hey thanks guys for changing the color background!! i couldnt see very well when it was green 🙂

  • Dragonprincess26

    There a youtude video that is talking about books making great gifts and Chris is on there.
    Here the link. (go to 1:10)

  • Terminator

    tht would be nice.
    oh wait this my first year.
    never mind.

  • Jack

    I’m not saying he is; I just heard Joelle and her family back in ’05, and it nearly made me want to cover my ears. Maybe it was just the songs, but it was just horrible. I’m hoping we’re having better songs this year.

  • brisingr

    how do you all know robert is a bad singer???

  • Jack

    You can try, but I am afraid I might have to wear earplugs. Maybe you should just stick with regular “Jingle Bells” or “Frosty the Snowman”.

  • Evarinya

    LOL you could try! That would be pretty funny though 🙂

  • Bob

    Maybe I should try to sing them, like Christmas ’05 and Joelle’s family.

  • Evarinya

    I sent in mine as well, but I doubt I win anything 🙂

  • Glorfindel

    What is a book plate?

  • brisingr

    neither can I!! Mine sucked, but I am sure you guys will have awsome ones.

  • Terminator

    I CANT wait to see these!!!
    HAHAHA!

  • brisingr

    i sumbited my carol tooooo!!! YAY

  • SoNiA

    i already sent in my carol!

  • Evarinya

    ?

  • Terminator

    rly? nevr happend to me b4, but whatever…

  • Bob

    Old comments were the same 😛

  • Terminator

    join the club. 🙁

  • orik

    I’m not even going to try to enter, I’m awful at writing poems…

  • Terminator

    oh. well tht explains a lot…my bad.
    (i’m still used to the old comments)…

  • Bob

    It shouldn’t double post as long as you only click the “Post” button once and don’t refresh the page after that.

  • Evarinya

    Well that stinks 🙁

  • Mike

    I’m not sure we’ll be able to post them unless there is a way to delete votes made after a certain date. I’ll have to have Robert/Bob look into it.

    The reason for this is that some how, the polls were never closed (though the polling date for them was set) and so people were voting even after having read Brisingr, skewing the results. 🙁

  • Silvara

    This shall be inteesting, i will like to see what people come up with. And mike, when are the resukts for all the Brisingr votes going to be posted, comparing them to the book. I will like to have a read of those results

  • Chris

    You’re supposed to include your address info with your entry. If it’s not there, I will try to contact you for it, but I will only wait a couple of days.

  • Terminator

    Why is my thing always double posting?

    Sorry didn’t mean too…

  • Terminator

    well, it nevr said I was banned so…. All good.

  • Terminator

    well, it nevr said I was banned so…. All good.

  • Jack

    Okay, test worked perfect. I am banned! How about that.
    BTW, is there a specific amount of time in which we need to claim our prize if we win, before our prize is given to somebody else? I.E., like if we don’t claim it within a week, or a month?

  • Bob

    Yep.

  • Faolins

    Oh so your’e just testing it out , we’re not actullay banned. Ook 🙂

  • Bob

    Testing complete.

  • Chris
  • deathone

    i really want to enter the contest but i can not think of any thing to put for a good song i wanted to do it all in the Ancient Language but i couldnt find out where any of the words are :(. Chistorpher should come up with a whole book on the words ands spellings.

  • deathone

  • DragonGirl52

    well I dont see what problem they would have with it considering in Alagaesia they most likely wouldent even celebrate christmas so these would just be songs which they might sing in celebratin of a event, like say a harvest, or songs they might sing to rejoice in a new Dragon Rider who opposes Galby

  • ThornFan4321

    I got a cool Idea for a song and I got the first line. It goes with Jingle Bells, the dashing through the snow part

    Flying thorugh the snow Strapped to Saphiras back
    With Roran
    To save Murtagh!

  • Evarinya

    meto 🙂

  • Jack

    I sent in my song! I’m not expecting to win anything; I’m just here for the fun of it!

  • Evarinya

    *shivers* dont worry we will get him off

  • Faolins

    Hope it is a great year for Shurtugal too :)Yeah he logged in and then went mental .

  • Daniel

    meant to say we left it open to everyone on here.

  • Daniel

    we left our forum open to anyone who wanted to come on a contribute to our stories and someone from here started cussing us out and posting porn links and were not going to take it.

  • feanarang

    sounds cool!

  • brisingr

    i agree with evarinya

  • Evarinya

    cool! thanks so much guys, we are so happy that Shurty is going through all these awesome changes and Im sure everyone is looking forward to everything and we will all have an awesome year 🙂

  • Chris

    We’ll choose a comment mod when we find one we like. We may not even need to have a new staffer for it.

  • Faolins

    Ok thanks,

  • brisingr

    chris do you know when we will chose the comment moderator.

  • brisingr

    AWSOME, thanks mike.

  • Mike

    Our goal is to be on a lot more all the time. 🙂

  • Faolins

    Are you guys going to be on a lot more now , or just while the new format is beggining ?

  • Chris

    We’ll be doing an interview with Christopher at some point. Not sure when at this time though.

  • brisingr

    mike, uh do you have any news on future interviews??

  • Faolins

    The site is great ! Really well done to all the team over the past few months , it was really worth it .

  • Mike

    I’ve gotten rid of all of the religious debating in the comments because it was absolutely ridiculous. If my use of the word Holiday actually offends you, you have bigger problems to deal with.

    We named the contest Holiday carol to encompass all of the holidays that happen this time of the year. If you spent a few seconds on Wikipedia you’d see that many holidays for various different beliefs fall during this time of the year. There are also many songs for all of the different holidays, and some that are simply season specific. It is because of this that the contest was opened to every celebration, not just one.

    Do not discuss or debate religion in the comments any more or we will have to ban people.

  • AmazingEmma

    This sounds like a great contest, and I will most likely enter after I make up a song… :p

  • Daniel

    don’t leave Festivus out. 😉

  • 51

    I know some holiday songs that aren’t about Christmas. We just don’t want to alienate anyone. 😀

    Also, start sending in some entries!

  • Mike

    I didn’t want to discourage people who don’t celebrate Christmas from entering.

  • Daniel

    I dont think Kwanza has any songs but Hanukah has a bunch that nobody hears anymore

  • Evarinya

    lol

  • ~Arien,~Powers~of~the~World~

    Just out of curiosity, why are you calling it “Holiday Carols”?

    Why dontcha just come out and Say Christmas Carols….I’m going to take a wild guess and say that Hanukkah and Kwanzaa don’t have many “carols”……

  • Daniel

    well the more the better. im thinking about a whole music video if i can get the sound recorder to work rite on my computer…

  • Mike

    Daniel – Not sure yet, probably just some extra signed things. 🙂

  • Daniel

    i hope. im workin on Saphira chasing Santa around Alagaesia. 🙂

  • Evarinya

    probably something good!

  • Daniel

    wut r the prizes if we submit a video or audio?
