As Boxer Turtle nears 1 year old, participation has fallen off to a point where something needs to be done to revitalize. A lot of people have asked me to extend the length of time for the various stages, so that's what I'm doing. Boxer Turtle will assume a two week schedule from now on, as follows: Topic Week: Sunday at 3:00 PM EST - The topic suggestion thread will be posted. Thursday afternoon/evening - Topic suggestions will end, and a poll will be added for the round's topics. Submission week: Sunday afternoon - At the conclusion of the poll, the topic will be open for submissions in a new thread (If the thread doesn't go up right away, have no fear, you can still start shooting!) Sunday at 3:00 PM EST - Submissions end, voting begins and lasts until Thursday afternoon (Coincides with topic suggestions) By the same token, Fight Club voting will be extended to Thursday. Finally, the topic choices each week will be limited to 5 to better consolidate votes. The rules will be updated soon for both contests, so watch out! In the mean time, this is a suggestion week, so get to it!
