As for validation, things are going faster now. Please, though, to make our jobs easier and for you to have a story, preview before you submit! All story must be 500 words minimum (not 499), no author's note should be in the story itself, but in the box labeled 'notes.' Also, please format line breaks, revise spelling and grammar, and resize art banners if applicable.

Thank you.

Mods, we now have our own forum over at livejournal. Go ahead and join and read the intro post as well.

I'll be emailing your personal accounts, too.

I have a problem.... I have to leave on vacation tomorrow morning at 4:00 AM Central time, and my story is waiting to be validated. Should I send it to you now, or should I wait until the last possible moment before leaving for Flordia? I don't know if I'll be near a computer during my vacation; dad said no laptops. HELP!!!!! :O

By TwiCat

By black2red

Posted 30 Jul 09

You can go ahead with your banner, chadley. TwiCat, I haven't recieved your entry and I'm not sure about the other mods. You might want to send it again.

By black2red

Posted 30 Jul 09

Alright, I've recieved TwiCat's entry, but I think you need to send you entry again, Red_Bell. :)

By MRSBellaCullenBlack

Posted 30 Jul 09

Hi =]! I just wanted to say that I summited my entry to the challenge like two days ago ...It hasn't been validated yet...I don't know if it would be validated in time for the deadline =/ or if it would be enough time for me to email all of you...so would that be a problem?...the one-shot is called "Closing off the Storm" Thanks in advance! ~MRSBellaCullenBlack

By MRSBellaCullenBlack

Posted 30 Jul 09

Thanks! lustandthrill!...I send it to everyone...hope you all got it ^_^

By Red_Bell

Posted 31 Jul 09

I re-sent it hopefully it'll work seeing as tomorrows the deadline :)

By black2red

Posted 31 Jul 09

Alright, everyone's entry should be posted up there (=

By awsomealice94

Posted 31 Jul 09

yikes- i was just looking on the Forum where all of the polls are and can sombody go and clean the first like 10 out? it seems that random people, not apart of TA or even Twilight Fans, have been posting some very....well lets just say there has to be a number of rules against those...erm...topics. I just thought i would let you know before you set up the poll for the banners so that not so many people see it.

By Tundra

Posted 31 Jul 09

Ahem, about the forum. You might want to stay clear of it right now. It's not just the first 10 topics -- spamming has been a problem for a few months now. It's impossible to clear all the topics each day because there are dozens of them. I've been wanting to tell you mods about it for quite some while now, but never got to it. Parasite and me have no clue as what to do about it.

By awsomealice94

Posted 31 Jul 09

okay-as long as you know about it. i just wasn't sure if anyone did and when i went on it today i was like....well, concerned, i guess, is one way to put it. Its sorta....er....well you know how bad it is. that really sucks-is it possible to get the polling arena cleaned up before the banner poll?

By Tundra

Posted 01 Aug 09

Yeah, I know. It's bad. We've tried everything -- banning their IP address, waiting it out, warnings... but nothing worked. The more we deleted them, the more kept showing up. I think the only way to stop it is to delete the forum and start a new one, but that would be a shame.

By awsomealice94

Posted 01 Aug 09

oh, no...that would be a shame. :( but it's possible to do-perhaps everyone that had a poll can just copy what it was about and paste it in Microsoft Word or someplace that they can get at it later and then everyone can just re-post them in a new polling arena. that could work-that way no polls/'data' is lost. Maybe you could set up like a week long time span where everyone has to save what they posted there, so that they can re-post it, before you delete the polling arena. i don't know-just an idea. I'm trying to help-because that is quite a pickle you're in :(

By Tundra

Posted 01 Aug 09

Yes, of course, there are many possibilities. We'll figure something out :) It's mostly up to Kaiwynn now, though... she has all the admin stuff.

By Bloodsisters

Posted 01 Aug 09

Sooo I have automatic validation, and it showed up, so I emailed all of you. Is that okay? Because my story isn't on the list yet and today is the deadline...

By awsomealice94

Posted 01 Aug 09

Didn't the conest end at 12am today? that would be last night-so the contest is already over-isn't it? yesterday was the last day to enter, i thought. Tundra-okay :) good luck. If there is anything i can do to help just say the word :)

By Tundra

Posted 01 Aug 09

Thanks, awsomealice :) I will.

By chadley

Posted 01 Aug 09

I hope it didn't end this morning...I turned mine in yesterday, sent it to the mods, but it isn't up there. I got an email from Iris, too. :/
