Title: The thread to read if you can't see the contest entries
Post by: Karissa on September 27, 2020, 05:13:33 PM
Once the contest starts,  you should  be able to see subforums above for the story groups that have been released so far. If you cannot, that means one thing - your post count is 0. We have a problem with spider bots that try to archive our forums, some of them legitimate (search engines, etc.) but most of them not. In order to protect our contestant's stories from being copied & pasted elsewhere, the stories are only visible to members who have posted at least once in the forums.

If you are a human (or an AI, alien, uplifted animal, or other sentient lifeform), you can solve this problem by simply making a post somewhere in these forums, for example this thread. It doesn't have to have content, as long as it's not spam.
