BTW, Alone is done by one of our regular guy here called "Chode". Actually, that story had some history behind it too- his 200 post are 'jacked' by an imposter using that same name too. Basically, it is not possible for that 6. vote to come down because beyond 100, his vote is already stabilized. Luckily, that is all to change soon...

What do you mean this will all change soon? Are you hinting that the Devs are going to change the system? Or maybe even judge the stories themselves? I have found many flaws in the current system (even though it is better that you can only vote once). My unique way of getting on the internet (Using a Linux Gateway) causes my IP address to change every time I dial out (BTW, I dont know much about how it works, my dad set it up, so I might have some errors in my understanding). So When I log of the net and come back on later, I find I can vote AGAIN for stories I have already voted for! (Not that I have, of course. I havn't even voted for my own once) Im hoping the Devs/website admin or whoever does this stuff can find a more accurate way to rate these.

Ooh, btw, why I'm asking questions: I was wondering what the (Novice) and (Senior) and, in your case, (resident) monkiers that are beneath your name mean. I assume they are related to how often you post in these forums?

They are going to change the system, isn't it? See their post about "The literacy contest is alive!) [BTW- literacy?]. They are keeping it soooo secret, that they never ever gave us a hint. Of course, if they don't do something about that IP stuff, I am going to sent the a bunker-buster bomb myself (literally). They know the problem, so best guess is that it is probably log-in voting Read the story personally? They said that once, but that is probably fiction now.

Novice is when you just started, Senior is 50-150 post, and senior is beyond 150 votes. Of course, they bear no significant meanings, so don't bother.

Thanks for the Info.
I noticed you refer to something you call 'The Verdict'. I'm assuming this is a self-made list of your favourite stories. Sounds like you put alotta thought into it! Unfortuneatly, I dont have a PDA or whatever to read the stories, and my time on the internet is somewhat limited. Do yuo think you could give me a list of must-reads? Id like to read some more, but as I cant read them all, I want to at least read the best ones. Thanks!

Yeah, I made "the verdict" (beaming with pride ) And yes, you probably need a PDA to read the numerous entrees (and lots of patience) if you want to give everyone a fair reading. Which is what almost everyone here cannot do. Which is why I did it

Must read... hmm. I can tell you directly that most of the stuff in the top ten list is very, very lousy. But this is what I can remember without refering to the verdict:
1) The difference between you and me. Definitely a must. you'll see why after you finish reading.
2) The inhuman condition - (look for full version in the forum). Among the very best that I know of.
3) Pilgrimage - also one that worth checking out, full of action.
4) Alone - I remember you reading this, but it is good anyway.
5) STALKER Chronicles - Not top-quality, yet VERY VERY entertaining, almost like yours.
6) Sergey (last page in the contest list) - quite good
7) The boy - worth recommending, but basically the author focus on The Zone itself (I think) more than its character.
8) Initiation and The Stalker - actually one story itself, btu the devs messed up and put them into two Short, yet quite well-done

There's more in "The Verdict"

I made a series myself called "Prey of one, Predator of another" [again, devs messed up and named it "Pray of one.predator of another" ]. If you have time, check it out, but definitely not worth your reading time if your time on the computer is limited.

I forgot "Kill or be killed". The name sound violent, but it is actually not, more on a stalker's thought about his life. Not that long too- must read!

BTW- if you are willing to take a shot, the devs are still accepting stuff with condition applied, so you can develop your story further DESPITE website claims. These guys seems to be good procrastinators when it comes to the contest... but make sure you sent me the copy of your story, because I will edit the stuff into the contest format and then send it back to you, so that even if the devs are not in the mood, there is still a large chunk of chance that your piece would make it through. The same offer goes to everyone else.

Of if you don't trust me OR you want to do it yourself, just "save" one of the stories of STALKERS with IE, edit it with word (you should have the dark blackground and gridlines.) and do everything the same way you want it submitted, but make sure
1) font is the same- I am not so sure what font, but I think it is verdana 7.5.
2) no spacing in front i.e no tabs

What you sent is probably how it would look like in the contest!

Of course, if you decided to trust me, you don't have to fear that I chop off your story and sent it as mine, considering A) I alread have 10 pieces of works done by myself and B) I am the senior resident here

But bear in mind this- the devs might get cocky because they had ended the contest officially, and there are risk if you do this. Me myself had submitted my work, and there is no rebuffs so far (I did everything according to the above things). Who knows, everything is posted next monday (and then me and Ian_C and Chode would be screaming "Good ol' Queen's Birthday )

Thanks alot friend for the offer.
Unfortuneately, with exams next week and about a million projects due this week, I doubt I'll have any time to write for at least 2 weeks. By then it might be too late...
