Hey! I'm sure the answer to this question is floating around somewhere, but I searched and couldn't find anything definitive--whether it is because I'm incompetent or blind remains to be seen.  But....

How do FFC challenge 3 results work?  I found a topic where people where discussing "honorable mentions" and stuff.  Do they not show everyone's ranking?  Or is it like a "here's the top three!  Also, here's some others we really liked" kinda deal?

Compared to previous rounds where you were awarded points based on your position in group, the challenge 3 results will probably be similar to how results are for the other NYC contests. 

The results will just list each group: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and then a few honorable mentions (which you can interpret as 4th, 5th place). I think the only reason they do rounds 1 and 2 with points is because Flash is the only contest that doesn't eliminate until after round 2.

But ya, if you don't place high enough to be mentioned, you will have no idea whether you were 10th vs 30th in group. You will only know that you didn't advance.

A week from today (Tuesday) I believe. Or is it Wednesday?

I think last year they announced 1st, 2nd, and 3rd (who qualify for the finals) and then five honorable mentions, ranked in order—so 4,5,6,7,8).  So out of 25 total entries, roughly a third will know where they finished.  The other 17 won’t know how well/badly they did.  And the rules say we get the results on Tuesday, 11:59 New York Standard Time.

uuuuuuuugh i'm DYING to know the results. We had a genre that was so foreign to us we have no idea how to gauge if we did it well or not. :'''''''( I'm so nervous! I keep blocking out next next weekend for writing and then i think, "Well....if you make it to the final round. You might not." and then my stomach twists up. D:

Didn't realise the results were next week. I don't see me making the final at all and won't have a problem with that as I wasn't all that happy with what I wrote. Same feeling with my flash fiction 2nd round story, which was truly awful! I'd be stunned if I progressed in the FF
