So Dave said in the last episode to look at the forum for rules of the flash fiction contest.  Where be they?   :)

I have told myself this time I am going to do like others did last time and comment on every story in the contest. Probably enter a story myself too. I assume the rules will be up in the contest section, but they are not up yet as far as I can tell. I am looking forward to it. It will be interesting to see spread of modern fantasy vs high fantasy vs steampunk vs other sub-genres compete against each other in the contest.

It's come to our attention that at least one person can't see the PC Flash Fiction contest thread linked above. If there's anyone else out there experiencing this issue (you have to be a registered user, obviously), please let us know.

Thanks!

Shouldn't you be able to see it even if you're not registered... during the submission period.  And then it will be made private to protect first publication rights when the reading/voting period starts?

In fact, only the actual story threads need to be made private, come to that.

"People commonly use the word 'procrastination' to describe what they do on the Internet. It seems to me too mild to describe what's happening as merely not-doing-work. We don't call it procrastination when someone gets drunk instead of working." - Paul Graham

The polls too, and any other thread that names the stories I'd say.  If I get 8th place out of 8 I'd rather it not be Googleable by that title for people to see that.

Ah, yes, good point.
