25 people

5 1st place
4 2nd place
4 3rd place
4 4th place
8 5th place

13 male, 12 female, I think.

And only five of us posted our first round stories in the forums.

You are a champion! I was wondering about our group and thought I'd have to do it tomorrow....

Hi!! Happy to help. And by “help” I mean “procrastinate.” Hope you’re having fun with the prompts!

I'm in Heat 18.  I don't recognize any of the names listed, but as others have noted, I don't know many forumites' IRL names.  I haven't tried to break it down by m/f, but my group consists of 25 as well:
1st    6
2nd   3
3rd    5
4th    9
5th    2

Heat 26:
8 - 1sts
3 - 2nds
2 - 3rds
7 - 4ths (including me)
3 - 5ths

And for some reason 2 people I cannot find on the Round 1 results sheet...not sure what's up with that (if they used a pen name, wouldn't it be the same on both the results and the assignments?)

One person was in the same heat as me in Round 1 (99).

For some reason, I often change places on n alphabetical list from first to second round. I list two last names, and in the first round I was listed by the second, while in this round, I'm listed by the first last name.
Like this:
Registered as: Jane Smith Doe
First round alphabetized under Doe
Second round alphabetized under Smith Doe

It's happened at least a couple times in these competitions, and causes me a few moments of panic when I can't find myself where I think I should be.

Ok, now I'm feeling a little squirrely. Why am I in the group with the highest number of 1's & 2's?

Because you're scary good and anything else would be sending lambs to slaughter.
