I had been planning on getting two others to help with the 
250-word contest master List coming up next month, but
as I was emailing with Charlie, and we were discussing how large 
these contest were getting, he said he would to try
an in house Master List for the 250. We had talked about it
a couple of years ago, but it was left there as neither of us 
had any good ideas of how to go about it. I would guess
he has been thinking about over time and has a plan!

He said he will try and have a working model a week or two 
before the start of the contest so that everyone can have a look
and maybe offer suggestions. I think the 250 is a good one to 
start with as it has the story right in the post rather than an 
off site link.

I sort of feel like it is the end of an era, I have liked doing 
the lists, though they have really grown the last couple of years,
The last Short Story was when I decided I would get help from 
then on - 218 heats. The most I had done before was I think
130 and that was a monster when you wake up to 50 pages 
of requests to be added - on hearing about the 218 heats I 
had started mumbling about the 218 and then my mouth 
would fall open, literally, lol, and I asked for help from other 
maintainers, and they obliged, thank their pointy little heads.

Anyway, there it is, history in the making! Looking forward to see 
What Charlie has up his sleeve.

Sounds like a great idea! My first competition was last years 250 and I’m so thankful for all the work you do! I can’t imagine how much it adds to your plate but having no idea who runs NYC midnight lol I feel like you and a few other “veterans” are the virtual face of the competitions! I always look forward to reading your work. I’ll be happy to give some feedback when a test comes out but I’m sure it’ll be great!

Thanks to you and the others for all your work over the years, Suave! It's been a great part of the contest. Cool that they are working on something centrally.

Not really. I emailed him a week ago and asked if I should prepare to
set up for the list, but he said no. I did not press him for a demo. So,
I guess we will see when he posts it.
