fun fact: I often get inquiries long after the contest concludes with authors asking when they'll know how their story did.  I then have to tell them all about our wonderful FORUM contest!

I was kind of intimidated by the number of entries in round 1, and I also found that by the time I got to a story it already had two pages of comments and I had nothing new to add. I will vote/crit in the subsequent rounds though, since at least then I'll hopefully bringing fresh eyes to the stories (I'm sure I've got a mason jar of them around here somewhere...).

We're nearing the last of the groups, folks!  I'll be releasing authors for groups 7 and 8 tomorrow/announcing winners and whatnot.  I've had a long day and not much free time to close it out today, sorry!

I figure Round 2 is when it'll start getting really hard! So many good stories already.

Tidied up the story group clutter here, hope you all find it easy to navigate.

Round 2B will be going up soon, so be sure to get your vote in!

Because I ...Excel... at making spreadsheets, I thought I'd make one to play with the numbers. And I thought YOU might like to play with it too.  Please don't abuse your editing privileges. Smiley

(Full disclosure: I should have probably taken Statistics at some point...)

Enjoy the Pseudopoll Crunch.

Update: maybe this link?

Ok, I've done a preliminary analysis of the numbers and it looks like each digit used only ranges from 0 to 9.  Also, the titles of the stories all seem to be primarily made up of vowels and consonants (with a handful of fricatives to spice things up) and I'm calculating that there is, like, a 94.6% likelihood that I am not equipped to derive meaningful data from the data provided.

Wow, we have all 18 groups posted.

Fun fact: the very last story I ported over to the forums, the last one submitted, number 212, the conclusion of my initial labors -- was titled "Finally", and appeared in group 10.

I hope you're all holding in there!  The last leg of the contest is upon us!

I'm also beyond ecstatic that you are enjoying my poll intros.  I've never done such lengthy ones before and the response to it has been awesome and encouraging for my own writing.  I'm almost burnt out (20 stories so far every other day is HARD) so I'll be resorting to micro fiction more and more I suspect, but I'm enjoying it nonetheless.  I'll set up a poll at the end for you all to vote on which one you liked the most.  You all make me blush.

They're a highlight, though not least because I'm not expected to render judgment and comment on 'em.  XD

Thanks for putting this all together, Bdoomed! Great work on the Poll Stories. I, for one, am glad that we're almost there!
