No one was participating.
I received an entry from Esper three days after the event was posted. I then did not receive any other submission until after I announced that it was ending with the Hall of Fame and ggFTW premium rewards.
When Harlequin was hosting, he also received next to no submissions every single week. This went on for a long time until he decided to drop it. I wanted to run it once myself before making any decisions, and with the end result, this is what I ultimately decided to do. There is no reason why any event should be hosted if people aren't interested in participating in it without a handsome reward attached to it.
Yup, secret's out. For multiple weeks I was actually submitting 2 out of 3 entries myself, just to maintain appearance of activity for the event. This is something that's been near and dear to me for a long time (since way back in the MT days) so I'm sad to see it end but at the same time, if I just wanted opinions on which one of my own signatures you liked, I would just use my own thread LOL. No use running an event if it's just going to wind up my own little circlejerk.
