Yes, I think you are right.  I registered early and have a high number this time, but in times past always had a low number.  The last FFC all the heats won with a single score were in the high numbers, that was my reason for making the supposition.

Let's put this to rest.  I registered Iratus and me at the same time, within 72 hours of the opening of registration.  He's in group 7. I am in group 80.

A friend who registered with less than an hour til deadline is in Rats' group 7.

Randomized in some fashion.

Thanks for the thoughts, all. I forgot about this thread as I got caught up in Screenplay and moving. Both a PITA, but will hopefully end well. ;-)

I'm with you on moving being a PITA. We moved at the end of June, to the same city we used to live in, and I'm not sure how much longer it'll be before we're really settled! I hope yours goes smoothly!

Right back at you, tc! Wink

And thanks for the kind thoughts, @ottersdaughter.

Thanks for the input, Suave! I hadn't thought about how the rounds are filled out. I do agree, it feels a little weird to have our scores in early rounds and then...nothing. I expect it in a contest like SSC, because we don't ever see scores. In FF, it would be helpful to have that through-line and info on solid areas for improvement.

I'm just wondering if I'm up for it again. I got two great pieces out of it (maybe three? Hard to tell), but it felt sort of empty at the end.

Please Vernacular, you must enter. Your work is always so excellent, it sets a benchmark for many of us. It is good to have good people to go up against; it makes us all lift our game. And your stories are always worth reading. 


Oh, Paulene, you are too good to me. My story is garbage. I set a bar for something, no doubt. Haha. But thanks for your supportive and generous words!
