ok, I guess I was getting overly concerned with the details :) if they've said it's ok in two places, that should negate an obscure paragraph in the fine print!

Operational Rule: If they post conflicting instructions, you get to follow the one that is most convenient for you.  If you get dinged for it - you get to hit them over the head with the version you followed.

And that is the sound of the Universe hitting me over the head a *third* time about reading all the things! LOL

I think it's around paragraph 16. Not sure how it affects resubmission rules.

I totally didn't catch that; thank you for posting it. The Q&A FAQ hasn't been updated since 2016, so I've asked over there to try and clarify, but it can take a day or two for them to reply in my experience.

I don't see anything different in the "official rules & participation agreement" but it doesn't say anything about re-submissions either (it never did iirc).  Here's what it says in the FAQ on the Questions and Answers forum: 

I've noticed a mistake in the story I've submitted.  The deadline hasn't been reached yet.  Can I resubmit?

Yes.  Writers may submit as many times as they like until the submission deadline.  We take the last submission before the deadline for judging.

I'd like to assume that since that's still on the FAQ that that's still the case - but paranoid me is still going to ask!

Thanks Otter - appreciate you checking in. Please, share what you find!
