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've posted before but not for a while. Can't see anything but maybe this will change all that.
Science is what you do when the funding panel thinks you know what you're doing. Fiction is the same only without the funding.

Good luck to all, and please be gentle (but truthful) with me...

Don't be dismayed! These things usually have some voter fatigue, and it's great that new people are starting to vote in the later groups. Also, the semifinals are great, with just the prime stories and still lots of competition!

Yup! Semi-finals are next week, and I'm sure they'll benefit from readers who are encountering most of the stories for the first time.
