Question on Word Count.
Is the 1,500 word cap calculated from all words that appear in the post? Or is it based on post-visible words as well as words in the coding? For example, if you code something to be centered, then do the Center and /Center commands in the coding count in the final word count?

I could be wrong, but the way I read it was that it is the word count of what a reader would see. I doubt coding would be considered, as all they need do is drop that into the word counter without the codes. That said, keep in mind that the word counter does count words such as I and A. I am quite familiar with that particular word counter from other sites I've written for. An admin or judge can correct me if I'm wrong about coding, but it doesn't seem likely in this case.

And since I'm out of this competition now, I'll wish everyone else still in it good luck!

I swear I saw somewhere that the judges don't take the formatting code into the word count, but I can't find it now.

Word count is only what you can see in the final entry, so formatting code is not included. So in your example, bananabadger, the CENTER and /CENTER would not be counted.

The good news is that if you are under the max word count including the tags, then you are definitely under the max word count with just the body text!

Putting the finishing touches on my unholy mess. Come what may I have to say I actually learned something. I tend to add additional words that aren't necessary. You can teach an old dog new tricks!

Almost everyone has to trim a lot. Except me in exactly round one (I think my R1 entry two years ago was under 1200).

As of right now, it's 50/50 if I get my submission in, in time. I got blindsided by work during the time that I put aside to finish my submission. Yay overtime, even if it is annoying I still have tomorrow but unsure if I'll feel up to it.

I just wanted to mention this in case Ysolde was debating about putting in a submission. Go for it Ysolde!

In any case, I'll be posting what I have even if it is incomplete.
