Before we get into the number one blog this week, I would like to introduce the 3 honorable mentions for this week!

For the first honorable mention, I would like to present...

toowise - Capital City Origins ~ South America

And Aficionado for guest judge was an amazing choice! Why don’t the guest judges leave their opinions on the blog also? Stewart was more than deserved. But when Public Salty Application Award?

And talking about my blog, did you find the Easter egg lol? Remembering that I’ll surely do at least four parts. Maybe 6. I’m about 38.699999999% finished with Part 2 (the fault for precise numbers is of Aficionado lol).

Congrats to all the featured people! :)

i guess we could just give them the option to make comments for the blogs, but we don't want people to spend 30 minutes just writing reasonable comments for something they will only get barely any fame for, although being a guest judge is quite prestigious lol, and we do appreciate people wanting to be able to help us.

I didn't. They said they would rank it and then multiply it by 1.5 so that I could "get" into the ranking. Honestly, I feel like being cheated a little bit. Guys, was I literally too generous in rating the blogs that you didn't let me in the rankings? 🤔😭

@Ethaboo444 and @ChineseChen Something has be done about this. Since I didn't rank my own blog, I feel like this is injustice that I'm not ranked #1. If nothing is done within the next 24 hours, the Quadruple Alliance will have to attack Sawiwi and its people will have to face dire consequences.

ok guinea pig boi

I told Chen it was fine that you could be in the top 5, and he said no with no reasoning lol I honestly have no idea why I agreed to it, but we aren't going to say no to community suggestions and criticism. This is the first time we have had a guest judge who also posted a blog the same week, so with this new guest judge feature comes with a lot of tweaks we need to make the make the Blog Games more fun for everyone involved. The main reason we made the guest judging is for more community activity, and some possible blogs in the future that I am making (with possibly ChineseChen) unrelated to the BG can also have the possible same effect.

Sorry in advance, I just have to discuss the issue to Chen when he wakes up lol. See what he wants to do. (Probably do nothing at all lol)

Why guinea pig? 😡

Then I'm afraid I have no other option other than to throw a pitcher plant on you and Chen. This is annoying. Working on a blog so hard and getting an honorable and also scoring the highest is like scoring the best in a class and the teacher deducting marks so that their "pet" can get first. Obviously, not directed towards any of the winners. I am just giving an example of how I am feeling right now.

I should have refused being a guest judge straight away because I care more about winning rather than deciding the winner!

I think Aficionado is now exaggerating ;-; Is the same thing that happen with cooldown. But idk if influence in your points.

Level 65
Dec 22, 2021
But I wasn't on cooldown! I deserve to win. Make me #1 now or else Sawiwi and Chen will face a nuclear weapon unleashed by none other than the great Aficionado!

If this is not possible, make a new award:

Pitiful Judge Award for unlucky guest judges like me, worth ((200÷100)×550)÷220 points.

also why my blog no get best story since it was the only story?

Jk, i don’t think there’s been enough stories this season to give out that award.

Level 55
Dec 21, 2021
We cancelled the Best Story award in Week 9 I think last season as it was really unfair to people who didn't make stories at all, and as stories were not coming into the RUB as often, it was really easy to gain points on the leaderboard.

(Not meaning that the BG is now competitive, still just for fun :) )

Thanks for the mention once again. Just to reply to one of the comments. The blogs are the same in this series for a reason. It's a series! They look the same by design. My next series will probably be different but each one in the series will be similar. That's the way I do things. Sorry.
