Title: The thread to read if you can't see the contest entries
Post by: eytanz on March 01, 2016, 02:26:58 AM
The contest has started, and 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, member of the Q continuum, 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.

I'm not sure if that's true. I can see the entries if I go to "Show unread..." which is how I usually approach the forum anyway. But if I go to Escape Artists > The Arcade > Flash Fiction IV - Escape Pod I don't see a "Group 1" folder. It's not a big deal, like I said, I can get there roundabout, but to someone coming in with less forum navigation experience it could be difficult to figure out.

I just did a test and it seems to work properly for a newly created account - not sure why you can't see the group. If anyone else has this problem, please let me know.

I see it now. I'm not sure what made the difference, but I'm sure the failing was mine. Sorry to cry wolf.

Is Submittable being updated for entries that fail to advance?


Title: Re: The thread to read if you can't see the contest entries
Post by: eytanz on May 08, 2016, 08:57:12 AM
To the best of my awareness, the editors are looking through the submittable to see if there are any other stories among the non-winners they wish to purchase. This is taking some time, I believe.

If you wish to submit the story elsewhere, please go ahead and withdraw it from the submittable.

Hi Ronnie!  This is the board of a long completed contest, you'll find the current one elsewhere.  Link is in the 'news' section at the top of the forums.
