I submitted my story, forgetting to check the font type and size. Unhappy I re-submitted and resent the email back-up with the proper font type and size...I hope they'll accept it!?

I think that as long as it is before the deadline, they take the latest one. My first year I botched the title page with enough time to ask them about it, and that is what they said.

I got my story in before midnight, but it took a few minutes to get my email sent, which put it just after midnight. I know from past experience it is fine and the email is only back up but it makes me nervous still!

As did I, although I didn't resubmit. It copies out of Google Docs in Arial and I pushed the deadline too hard. I had workers who could only come this weekend. 

*headdesk*

Well, there goes 10% and probably my only chance to advance to Round 2.

feedback@nycmidnight.com and please use FFC2013 Challenge #2 Story as the subject line of the e-mail.

I'm a bit neurotic and take a screenshot of my confirmation message.

I don't know if they'd ever accept that if both my upload and email failed to go through, but I'll have it if that is every the case! HA

No reason to believe you will be DQ'd. However, like my font fault, it will hurt that 10% of the score that is formatting. 

I feel for you on that one. I almost did the same thing. I subbed 16 minutes before the deadline, was still editing 20 minutes before it.

You're right. I checked and had forgotten in the last round too. Idiotic. Since I scored 14 points then. Disapprove
