Don't mean to be a bother but Mega Mahoney's story isn't on the ballot.

The post date for some of those stories was the 2nd. Last date for the contest was the 1st. as mentioned, mine wasn't on there.

I really don't wanna gripe here, considering my obvious bias and it's all supposed to be in fun anyway, but I would have thought searching the last month for all threads marked "Story Contest 2" or "Story Contest #2", noting the ones that made the cutoff, and posting that list would have been fairly simple.

Addendum: and it means that folks who got added late have been unfairly penalized, since you can't change your selection. Perhaps the poll could be reset?

I think the contests rules should stand. A month was given, and the cutoff date was the 1st of febuary. Anything after that was just...too late.

Its a friendly contest, but stil a contest. You say dont be unfair to those late entrants? I say dont be unfair to those who were on time.
Its a double standard, giving some folks extra days and not others. I know for a fact it would have made a difference *looks to padfoot* You're running this contest....so its your call.

I'm sorry for any mix-ups that may have happened in the progress of this contest everyone. First of all...the final posting date for the contest was in fact, Feb. 1st.

Dragonien, you were late. Your story cannot be included in the list, I'm sorry. You were given 3 weeks...a bit more possibly, but that was a good chunk of time.

Second, Mega Mahoney, I'm talking to Duncan about this to see what is the best way to go about fixing it. No worries mate.

Thanks everyone.
