Whatever happens I sincerely hope they keep their winning positions, I think it'd be unfair to the winners to take it away from them after they've been told they've won.
An explanation as to the whole 300 words or less thing would also be nice though. Is it a rule we can flagrantly disregard in the next contest? can we write novellas next time? I'd much prefer to be able to stretch my fingers and give you several thousand words for the next one.
300 words or less is like trying to write haiku for me. :p
I definitely took a slightly different approach with my entry, but the winning submission was great nonetheless! I, too, would like some kind of official clarification on the contest rules just as reference for future entries, though. Still, congratulations to the winner as well as the honorable mention!
Congratulations to Thehybrid who won the Alien Identification contest. You can find his entry on the Contest Winners page. Also, honorable mention goes out to our runner up Coldsteel6d for his entry. Both will get special forum titles and Thehybrid will get a slot in Star Trek Online's closed beta.
Look for our upcoming contest within the next few weeks!
Talk about it!
ummm awen what is going on here? The rules asked for 300 words or less... that is like 700 words?
