I voted.

Really cool and fun to read. I had a hard time narrowing down to 5.

Some clarification on the image thing, since this has been brought up:

No, the Round Zero post and its rules do not specifically mention images. However, they do tell you to read the general rule of the competition. It DOES NOT state that those rules do not apply to round zero, only that some rules for round zero can be different, and in the case that there are specific rules for round zero given that contradict the general rules, the specific rules for round zero supersede the general rules. The only argument that could even be remotely made is that the phrasing that it will be clear from the context which rules don't apply to round zero could have been misinterpreted for the rule about images not applying. However, a) there isn't really any reason why the context would imply that it doesn't, since it is in the more detailed rules on word limits and there is no reason that anything there should not apply since round zero has a word limit, and, more importantly, the reason we don't even need to discuss whether or not you agree with a) is that b) that specific part of the general rules (Rule 5) explicitly mentions round zero:

Quote:
[...] and don't include any images, or have any links to outside information.
[...]
Round Zero is a short entry (500 words) but future rounds will have increased limits, usually of 1,500-3,000 words.
Clearly, a rule that specifically mentions round zero also applies to round zero.

I will admit that sometimes some things can be unclear. We are only humans running this competition as well and sometimes things slip through the cracks. However, in this case, the rules are very clear, and even if you try to be generous, the only way to arrive at the conclusion that images weren't prohibited for round zero after reading the rules is by deliberately misinterpreting things or ignoring parts of the rules to fit the narrative.

For the record, none of the people who actually broke the rule are the ones who have questioned whether the rule is applicable, so this is not directed at them. Their entries have been included with the rest, and if they do well enough the penalty won't matter. This is merely a point of clarification as to whether or not the general rules applied to round zero, which some people were questioning.

Thanks for the clarification Inem.

For me, my only excuse is, "I did this beforeism." Effectively skimmed the rules and believed I remembered everything from my try two years ago As I have a bad memory, I obviously should have slapped myself on the back of the head and read the rules word for word.

Hey all I remember from my last try is that in round one I used the total number of characters count instead of word count.

Another note, this time concerning voting, just so no one needs to be concerned or confused: Having an apostrophe in the "about" part of a spoilerbutton breaks the code in some way, so that the spoilerbutton won't open. This comes up every year during the round zero voting (because some people will, reasonably so, call their spoilerbutton something like "Inem's votes"), and I always forget about it again until the following year. It's not a hard fix, I can just go in and edit the post to remove the apostrophe and then it works fine. So anyone who's already voted, don't worry about it. Anyone who's still voting can try to avoid apostrophes, but no big deal if you forget.

I've also added a note to to the round zero voting post, mainly because that way I'll finally remember next year, when I reference this year's post

Wait, really? I learn something new about the site code every day.

I guess it's been patched, cool! One of those little things you never realize isn't broken because the bug was so rare in the first place.
