The increased popularity of Story of My Season Threads (SOMS) has no gone unnoticed, its great to see the forum thriving as people exploit the use of Master League and Become a Legend modes to create a story which keeps the reader glued for the next installment. The Story of Neoseeker FC - run by Cashis last season - took the forum by storm last year and the Lorient connection (Saeglopur, Chelskiman); the thrilling stories of Benjamin Smith's rise to Barcelona and Pierre Bière (do, do, do, do, do!) who helped take the French club into the Europa League still stick in the mind.

So in an idea somewhat borrowed/taken from the Football Manager forum, SOMS of the Fortnight gives one lucky forum member the opportunity to have their story at the forefront of the forum. So what do you win then? The story voted as best of the week will be stickied at the top of the forum AND be referenced under the main forum header.

How does it work? Three SOMS will be nominated every second Friday (by me) with open forum voting commencing until Sunday. This will give winners the chance to have their SOMS in the spotlight for two weeks. So if you haven't started a thread yet about your team or player why not tell your story?

Only one rule so far, you can only have one thread nominated at a time.

I think it should be between:
Enter the Dragons
Pure Catenaccio

My SOMS is the ugly duckling of the forum. I will get it looking pretty someday...

Hey, my SOMS also wasn't near pretty but it was sorta sucessful.. I think.

IMO, making it monthly risks the competition having one or at best two more winners before nobody decides to continue with their story.

Anyways, my podium would be Adinio's, Parmar's Enter The Dragons, and Mace85's SOMS. I would nominate those three.

Keep it as a fortnightly thing. I do agree that Adinio deserves something

I'm fine with it being a monthly competition. But Adinio should be put up on the board before we do that. Done excellent updating his while everyone else was inactive, or just starting to come back.

Little forum vote or whatever here, I have really been hesitating to choose this fortnight's nominees. When I started this thread there was much more activity story wise in the forum but now however? That is a different issue. So I want to run it by everyone here to see if making this a monthly competition will allow for more updates and really lay pressure off people to produce quality over quantity, and really to give me more to work with choice wise.

So thoughts?

Will there be nominations today perhaps? Doesn't really matter (My SOMS just hit a stride ) but just would like to know

It's as simple as I've been in Galway since I announced that winner and the templates are on my main computer at home in Cork.

Also, why is ETD not on the thread header Hall of Fame.
I wondered too.
