I'll give this a go. I'm a big fan of the 90s but not as familiar with live-action TV in the era. Just to be clear, it's any show that aired in the 90s but does that include shows that started in the 80s and lasted into the 90s? (Tales from the Crypt, Saturday Night Live, etc.)

BTW does Highlander the Series count for this tournament?

If Highlander was a live action TV series putting out NEW episodes in the 90's, then sure.

Hope there's a decent amount of turnout for this. It's our first Flash Fiction tourney in a few months. 

BTW, as a reminder, please post a link to your entry in this thread, so that it may be easier to find the winning entry to place into the CBUB Hall of Fame

Looking at you ATM, @Twogunkid.

So I got back into my Zombie Power Rangers arc, and sent in the next part for the tournament.

Titanus vs Tor The Shuttlezord

Now I don’t know if this match will be eligible for the tournament, since its Part 18 of my arc. I just wanted to do something for the tournament. But I hope everyone enjoys the new part to my arc.

I'm glad I am no longer winning by default and it looks like I have some stiff competition. May the best writer win.

Really didn't think I'd make it but finally came up with something and here goes...

Hi @leroypowell3

You have to use the Tournament option, in the match creator.  That is in the official rules.

Sorry but this is not created as a Tournament match.  Please create the match using the Tournament match option in the match creator.

Thanks!

Update:

I have converted it to a Tournament match in the database.

Ouch. Dead last. Gonna go walk this one off.

Don't take it too hard. 

The reason I run these contests is to give people an incentive to work on their writing skills.

I'm a firm believer in the power of written communication skills and how it can help you in your career and personal life. But you can get rusty at it so it takes practice!

Anyways, you are winning just by writing something. Hope to see you flexing those writing muscles again in the next match.
