Will there be sugar after the rebellion?

Wow! Nearly missed the first week of voting!

Still, I have a good excuse in the form of a really strange week, culminating in me getting stuck for an hour in a private skin care clinic waiting room because the street outside had just been closed so it could be turned into a venue for a car show. I hope the stories in the contest are at least as weird as that. Tongue

How did the various groups get broken down for their initial presentation? I suspected in the first three rounds that there had been some preliminary sorting--basically, 1-2 strong stories, and a lot of other weaker ones.

This is probably the most fair contest set up I've ever seen. Awesome design.

Authors are now revealed in group 1 stories not moving on to the semifinals.  Their names are added to the story titles.  After your story is revealed feel free to comment on it, explain your choices, etc...

following up on my earlier comment:

The problem with having the groups revealed every other day is that it makes the off days feel like the day before the contest is about to begin
I'm finding with this schedule I'm spending a lot more time looking at the comments and rereading entries, and that's really contributing to making this my favourite contest yet. In other words, past me takes everything back.

Does anyone else spend "story mornings" refreshing the page, waiting for the new group of stories to appear?

No? Just me then Wink

Voting fatigue, pah!

I've been posting them before I go to sleep, and like most cats I tend to be nocturnal.  But I make no promises to get the groups up in the early AM pacific time.  I will try to get them up before 10am my time.  So occasionally you may have quite a wait...

Given that was your first post, you probably weren't "real" yet. Now that you've identified yourself to the spambots, you might be able to see them.

(Them being the stories. You can't see the spambots; they only become visible when they feed.)
