What Gaijin said. I also think that the official ruling is that the text *does* count against the word limit. Literally everything you write counts against the word limit.

Quote:
To encourage contestants to not leave entries until the last minute, contestants who submit their entry within 5 days of the initial thread starting will receive two bonus points (in addition to the averaged 45+ points from the judges). Contestants who submit their entry after the 5th day, but before the 6th, will receive a single bonus point. Contestants posting on the last day receive no bonus points.
Is my understanding for the bonus point cut-off correct?

Friday @ Midnight [+2 points]
Saturday @ Midnight [+1 point]
Sunday @ Midnight [+0 points]

I'm so slammed this week, it'll be a struggle to get a chance to write before Friday. Fingers-crossed that I can sit down and crank something out that evening.

Shesh! Several people have submitted their entries and 3 of our 5 contenders haven't even reported for muster ~_~

I'm digging the Sunday to Sunday though as Sunday Monday are boring work days with which to think, Tuesday is gameday to get the juices flowing, Wednesday is free and clear for writing, and Thursday to have slept on it and submit just in time for bonus points!

*Frantically looks around for wood to knock on*

Now that would be anti-climatic :/

Edit: And I just found out that the other threads are not eye's only for the participants and judges. Gonna go read me some intros. Then get back to work.

Hi all, I'm excited to have a crack at this and reading the ingredients now. I've had a rather large family emergency over the last few days, so haven't been able to post. Looks like I still have a couple of days left though (Friday deadline?) Hopefully I can get a nice entry sorted for you by then! This is really exciting.

I may need to shorten this at some point. I'm on 500 words and I'm only on the hooks.

I remember that challenge when I used to play too.

Like I told Yuul:

Ingredients are the first stage monsters.
The Boss Monster is word count.

So if I want to secret it for multiple people, would I be like "SECRET="User1, User2, User3" (with the square brackets obviously)

Do the secret tags count for the word count?

Yes, and then no, I think. It's the amount of text that is visible in the full post, not the bbcode and all.

ExtensionTo extend Mujie's question, is this post thirteen, fourteen, sixteen or eighteen words?
