Didnt work but thanks a lot for taking the time Dave!

Actually, I've decided I may write my entry without seeing the screenshot anyway...perhaps my wild imagination will take me farther...

Tell us about the planet shown on the Planet Exploration contest rules page. You can tell a story of daily life of the inhabitants, make a scientific survey log entry, or weave any type of tale you choose.

Email us your story of up to 500 words at contest@crypticstudios.com by January 29, 2009.

Orbit established, Captain. What do you think is down there?
Is this for the US only? or is this competition eligible for people outside the US i.e. England?

I want to be in that beta seat as much as anyone else does, but after reading the contest rules I think I would rather relax and observe the other contestants. I look forward to reading about the winner, and perahps a few of the entries?

How flippin' sweet is this?? This is exactly the kind of contest I want to see from Cryptic. It's been a few years since I've had to flex creative muscles like this, but I might make an entry. =D

Oh wow, I didn't even notice the prize for it. That's really cool, and I would love to get that, but I'm gonna be writing this just for the sake of being able to (possibly) see my writing accepted as the background story for the planet. That would be accomplishment enough for me.
