Simple Comp [An LP Comp]

Postby halfmaster1 on Wed Jan 02, 2013 3:08 pm

Seeing as I have been so unreliable in the previous competitions I have made, I have decided to make a competition with the least possible need for my involvement.

Score is basically the exact same as Schmittd's LP comps.

Winning:


Add up you piece count for all 3 levels
Lowest score wins

If there is a tie, then I will post a new level, whoever gets the least pieces there wins!


Rule:


1. No glitching or any other obvious cheating, such as stealing.





Now onto the levels:


Level 1

Level 2

Level 3


Due January 13th noon EST

I may not get the results up right away, but I tried to put the due date on I time that I'd be free.

PM me your solutions as you make them, I will keep a leader board up. You can resubmit your solutions many times, if you wish.


Please be aware this is not the final leader board. It is simply to show where you currently stand.

Leader Board
1. Wafflekins

2. schmittd


Lemme know if I forgot something, and enjoy the comp!

Irrelevant; but

what's the standard english rule for using "an" before a single consonant: (an LP Comp).
When spelled, it looks wrong because the next word/letter begins with a consonant
but out loud, it sounds right because the phonetic spelling is "el"

i was literally wondering the same thing because of this comp and i have no clue. any english majors around?

well if were to say "an used dishrag" that would be wrong because "used" sounds like "yused" so it would be "a used dishrag". i think the same applies here, so i think that the correct way would be "an LP comp" just like he has it. but i dont know grammar good.

My thoughts:
An underworld
An hour

Hence "an" before vowel sounds.

A URL (a you are ell)
Ergo, "An LP comp" (an ell pea comp).

Only really works if you're using relatively common abbreviations though. You wouldn't want to abbreviate "a short answer" to "an SA" - people might misunderstand you!
