Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

Looking at recent prior years, Q2 results have come out anytime late May to early July. Is there any info out there that might narrow that window? I checked my numbers, and I've gotten results as early as May 19th (that was in 2008) and as late as Sept 13th (I'm a little suspicious of this one, but...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

And don't discount weekends! I got at least one of my finalist calls on a Saturday morning. Yep, and I've never gotten higher than an HM, so that might have impacted my stats too! wotf007 It looks like for two of the last three Q1s, I've submitted on the last day (as I did this year), and I've gott...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

How many stories is 900 submissions? According to the Submission Grinder, I have 47 different pieces, but that might not be completely accurate because when I revise to the point that I consider it a new story and change the title, I create a new piece for tracking purposes. I've decided to focus o...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

If anyone felt like doing some analysis on the results days over the last few years, though, I for one would be interested! Actually, this is a thing I track (sometimes, my submitomancy goes pretty in-depth!). I don't have it broken down by year, but since V27Q3, which was in 2010 (probably when I ...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

I guess I forgot to check in here, but I submitted my story on December 31st--I didn't accomplish my goal of not submitting on the last day, but at least I managed to get it in!

I've cycled back to rejections. For those keeping track, I did get the first pass email (I can't remember if I checked in here when I did). I'm off to send the story somewhere else! wotf024

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

I forgot to check in here, but I got the first pass email on September 10th (I submitted on June 30th). I also just realized it's almost the end of the quarter, so I'd better get something lined up. Looks like I'm not going to achieve my goal of not submitting at the last minute this time either....

I waited longer than I wanted to (starting and finishing), but I'm in as of a few hours ago. (Bonus: the portal wasn't closed this time!)

Re: Four in Thirty-Five (4 in 35!)

I haven't done a good job of reading the forum lately, but I think this is great! With my entry today, I'm starting my second decade of 4 contest submissions each year. I cut it closer than I have in a long time on this quarter, so this will be good motivation to make sure I start early on the next ...

I tried to submit earlier today and the application portal already says it is closed. I emailed my story to Joni, so hopefully, I'm in for Q1!
