Yo all,
I confered with Atem with what's happening, (BTW, he told me they are not taking submissions on 27th April- so anyone who was sending on 25th was received. Am very sorry to all who took my advice. ) and this is his reply

We announce the rules of a new voting period in a month, when the last standard voting period is over.

So this is why there's no change on the voting system yet.

I just want to be clear...

Anyone who sent entries on the 25th will get into the contest? What if you sent them on the 26?

I did a rush job to send mine in by the end of the 25th but I get confused with time zones so I'm not sure what day I actually sent them in. I should be ok, Australia is ahead of most places isn't it?

Look at Chode's. Yes, probably, I think. And Aussie, I don't know about Aus, but its 10 hours later than New Zealand than in Kiev. So you're not the only one that is so ahead of the world, mate.

Yup, I know. Looks like I'm not the only guy around that is in the countries of the ANZAC

I took your advice. *sniffle*

It's all right though, I wouldn't have gotten it done by the 26th anyway.

Oooh.... I sent my story at 3 in the morning (CANADA/New York time) on the 26th. You don't think that was too late do you? Also... How did you guys go about sending yours in? I couldn't figure out how to do it, so I just sent a copy to the webmaster and to Anton Bolshakov... do you think that will get my story to the right place?

Nah. My expereince tells me that they check their mail at around 9.00 AM in the morning (a.k.a first thing in the morning). Let me counsult my PDA...

Answer is: too late.
3.00 am in NY is 10 AM in Kiev.

However, they might be mercy for you, as my intuition (or mind) figured that since they include every story in the CD so that those guys will buy the game as keepsake, they might include yours. And since you had the guts to email the vice president of GSC... anyway, there's no telling. You might want to mail atem (look at his profile in his post at 'the literacy contest is alive!' thread) for confirmation.

I sent mine in, but it's in the proprietary Microsoft Works Word Processor instead of just ol' Microsoft Word.

...So mine probably wont get on there because it's the wrong format (sent it in around 3am central standard too, so that's like...11AM or something over there anyway). Oh well, I guess.

It explains the changes to the literary contest for my story to me .

I wrote mine in notepad,

Then I copied and pasted it into Outlook express and mailed it away.

Unfortunately, my paragraph breaks seem to be lost in transmission

Looking down through all the stories in the contest, I found it amusing that of the rated stories only one remains above 5, and 14 are below 5. Almost all the sories are 5. something. What a bunch of mediocre we all must be. I can't wait to see how they try to remedy the voting system. :d

What would you say to tossing all votes of 1 and 10? I think most people who give an honest review will rarely hand out a score of 10 and the majority of those "10" or "1" votes are people manipulating the rankings. Just a thought.

I'd be curious to see what that would do to the rankings
