I'll give everyone a few days to re-read them, and post the poll for the best story.
Thanks for you patience everyone, especially whiteraven1606!!
Nominations are NOW OPEN! The nominations period will end on 21 March 2008.
The winner for January's 'Spank Me' is Lost Latitudes by wolfshark. Voting was quite close, I'm looking forward to seeing the February Challenges!
Anyone who wants to sign up for the February Stalker Challenge, please email me at sonotgoingthere (at) gmail (dot) com by Thursday.
( Remember to include this info in the email )
Rules for the challenge are here.
Stalker Challenge Entries are due between 14 February and 29 February.
Results from the poll were quite encouraging. Since most people like the idea of showing stories from all over, not just KOTM, I will look into setting something up for early next year.
So, on to the January Challenge.
Shockingly, Spanking has never been done here, and that needs to be remedied.
Art and Stories are both welcomed for this (and all) challenges.
Stories or Art should be posted between 1 January and 31 January.
Winner gets an Icon designed by Me! to their specifications.
( The Rules )
Did anyone else have their Kinkofthemonth Story Nominated? Or see one while they were going through the Nominees?
Also, How do people feel about KOTM doing some Kink Awards? Would you guys be up for that?
Please reply in the comments for what categories you'd like to see.. ie Best Spanking, etc
I'm throwing in "I didn't think I'd find this kink hot until I read your story" as a suggestion. Its happened to me often enough!!
kinkofthemonth's 'Sex In Space' Icon Challenge
KINK NEEDS YOU!
To the lurkers at the back! The members who really love to read the stories but prefer to do art (or don't write) this is your time to SHINE.
The changes made to the challenges allow us to be a bit more creative and do something I know mckays_girl has been wanting to do for ages – encourage more art.
Please be aware that the Icons in the Icon Challenge are intended to be used by community members during the challenge month. Writers are encouraged to use they favourites when posting their stories.
Since this is a new Challenge, we'd really like to hear your feedback. Please comment to this post.
kinkofthemonths 'Sex in Space' Challenge
(Which should totally be said like the 'pigs in space' into from the muppets)
brought to you by:
mckays_girl, girly_curl_3 and our newest maintainers lishel_fracrium and sonotgoingthere
Think - Go'uld Mothership, Ori Ships, Replicatior Ships, Puddlejumpers, hive ships, the midway station etc... anything in space or capable of space flight.
( Here are the rules )
Also, as you might have noticed, I haven't been keeping up with things here. I have a bunch of stuff going on in my life that has been distracting me, preventing me from giving this community the attention it deserves. I'd like 1 or 2 volunteers who would be willing to help out with running challenges. I need people who are creative and enthusiastic, who can help advertise the community and encourage more people to write for it.
If you're interested, reply to this post.
kinkofthemonth 's Countdown to Stargate ChallengeThere are 5 categories you can write for:

Make sure you tag your story with the correct category. Any slash pairing is acceptable. There is no minimum or maximum word length for this challenge.
If you have some elements of more than one category that's fine, just pick the category you'd like your story to be sorted into. Feel free to submit as many stories as you'd like, in as many categories as you'd like. For this challenge, the stories must be new.
