Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

Hypothetically, if someone submitted via email and has not yet received any sort of results via email from Joni/the contest, should said person be concerned that there is an issue in the line of communication or should they be excited because no news is good news? Asking for a friend that is twitch...

Any word on semi-finalists? Do they usually take longer to come out? There's usually 2 or 3 forumites who report one and I haven't seen any yet.


Ckkemp reported a Semi-finalist under the Q2 quarterly results thread a few days ago.

How do people on here know to update their status to rejected then? Just based on inference because other people were informed of HM or SHM etc? While very nice to receive, HMs, etc., are still technically rejections. Only the winners and any published finalists are actual acceptances. I recognize ...

I submitted an uncritted rough draft to Q1 (that I winced when I reread - I love the basic idea, but I completely mangled the execution of it), which is great for me not getting my hopes up. However, I wouldn't advise this method of hope management :) I'm just curious whether it will get an HM or an...

Re: Revised Honorable Mentions

For Q3 last year, I did submit a revised HM which ended up netting a Semi-Finalist. However, I'd waited three and a half years between the HM and that resub. I'd also known back then that there were major issues with the ending. So after letting it sit for over three years, and then taking another l...
