I just meant is as the story came in about half a year after I sent it. I saw it on the interview, so I knew it hadn't fallen completely off the map. On that note, after checking the contest:
Apparently lots of people like impersonating you amoki . You should...break their knneecaps or something . Anyway, I'm surprised your story isn't rated better (...pfft, not that surprised through this voting system), it had a decent plot and an unexpected twist in the middle there. And apparently people like going off on weird tangents in the comments. Anyway, I await a standardized, more legitimate contest judgement system with rabid anticipation.
...even if I don't manage to get to this forum periodcially.
Q: 1)There are cases in the contest that they got the nature of The Zone wrong. Generally, 2 types, but we will tackle geo-political data fault (geo= geopgraphy, political = governemnt controlling the Zone). While you did mention a few months ago that whether a Communist Ukraine or a Democratic Republic of Ukraine is no longer an issue in the contest, these cases went a bit further. We do have cases of US Army controlling The Zone and even the British! Obviously these authors had not looked carefully at their map, or they did not do their research. Will you comment on this?
A: It doesn't matter much. If the story is good and the authors voted fot this such story could be the winner. Authors don't know everything about the game and thats ok. (I asked this question specifically for Franz Inc)
Hey I never got to thank you for clearing that up. Thanks Amoki.
Great Interview by the way! It answers alot of questions!
