Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I still believe in thursdays! That was one of the most exciting thursdays in a long time. Four pages! Sheesh! And only a couple mystery HMs and one rejection. Well, looks like our little company is still intact. At least until next thursday. (sigh) That feels like a year from now. Preston Dennett (H...

Welcome Tim.
Hope your Q2 entry wins. Seems there's always a story in the volumes written by somebody who entered for the first time. Good Luck!

For those LAMPS (and others) who haven't gotten a whiff of a response of any kind, don't bother querying Joni. I've done it for you. Here's her response. We are running a bit behind, but we will get the results out soon. If you haven't received notice that is a good thing, as we've sent out 99% of ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Speaking of which, does anyone know what the protocol is for logging an HM in Duotrope? My inclination is to record a "personal rejection." Please let me know so I can record my status ASAP. Clearly there are no controls and no protocol. But there are two prevailing theories: 1. The Criti...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Thanks Hazlett, we were all waiting. And congrats on the HM. Nice! Here's another analysis, using the below scoring system: HM = 1 point SHM = 2 pts SF = 4 pts F = 8 pts With so many tiers, it's difficult to see who's received the most recognition. But using this scoring system, the top three people...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Must be a lot of entries this quarter, because this seems to be one of the longest waits ever! Or maybe, the stories are all just so darn good that poor KD can't decide. I can't imagine we'll have to wait until May. Still, we don't even have one verified HM yet. Weird.
