Listen - if you want to rest easy about which judge you get - here's a simple tip to follow:  just don't spell out your small numbers - wait, I mean ALWAYS spell out your numbers, no matter how big - wait, ah, crap, I can't remember the damn tip!  OK, DON'T USE ANY NUMBERS IN YOUR STORY!

Big smile

I'll take two hours earlier than advertised: 9:59 PM EST on Wednesday, Sept. 15.

Which challenge?  IIRC, all results were late, ranging from just half a day to around two days.  That's just a gut feel, though.  I'm not sure how to know for sure, as I don't keep the emails...

(and by "late", I mean later than what they say they will do in the Official Participation Rules, which usually have the results coming out the Ednesday before the next challenge, again IIRC).

Glitches in space-time...I love it!  Plus, that is an excuse we haven't seen yet when judging is delayed, so perhaps you have given NYCMMM an idea.  *smile*

Speaking of time and space, I was betting on Oct for the the results Confused (thanks for pointing that out Joe- can you tell i'm tired?) but Joe is speaking in terms of Ednesday, so I'm guessing, maybe the results will actually come out on Ednesday, Ocsember 15ht, at 59:11mp. 
 
If i'm right, I'll buy you all a round at the Raven and the Rose bar in glalxy 7 (or seven, depending on who's listening)

Just noticed the group assignment pages have been updated with columns for the points, when they come. Is it sad that I'm just a little bit excited about that?

You're excited? I'm petrified.

I really don't like that they list our names next to the points. Couldn't we have done it, well, some other anonymous way? It's going to blow when I get last place and it's public info on the internet.

Unless we know your name (I don't know yours off the top of my head...), how can we map forum username to real name?  You're safe, unless you place highly, and then we'll be able to match story to name to username (since you posted your piece).

If you want to stay anonymous, there are several ways to go about it:

-- Use a fake name to register (though not sure how well that works if you end up winning a prize!)
-- Don't post your story.
-- Make sure your real name in nowhere on your story content, email address, on your blog, etc.
-- Make sure your story doesn't place in top five (which is how many they usually post as the "top" of each group.) That's probably not all that desirable.  *smile*

In other words, you should be able to be as anonymous (or not) as you want to be.  And if you get last place, we won't really have any idea of who you are (other than that your piece didn't land in the top five...)

Good luck!
