    just to clarify:

    that should read "before the end of tomorrow" and not "before we end of tomorrow", yes? and would that be 12 midnight est?

    also, are the shard EMs still accepting submissions or do they need to be sent directly to Mesanna?

    Send it to your EM if you have one, otherwise to Mesanna.

    Yeah... I mean if they were to release the winners today I would indeed have to give some merit to those that would claim a "conspiracy" was hatched lol

    The deadline is today. If they announce a winner in the next few hours, day or two or week, I'll just assume they didn't bother reading most of the stories or only have one judge speed reading (scrolling quickly over) the entries.

    From what I read, there are a potential five winners per shard. It was quite widely announced so I suspect we will have quite a lot of entries. And if non-english speakers enter as well (read: asian shards) then there will probably be a translator involved somewhere.

    I suspect (and hope) we'll get the results next week+ AT THE EARLIEST.

    *edit* With the anniversary party at the end of the month, I actually think it'd be most appropriate if the winners were announced there anyway.

    Codes won't be emailed until Oct 6th so I assume they will announce the winners right before that. Perhaps around the actual anniversary?

    Even if there is "only" send in 5 stories a shard they would have over 100 stories to read. It will be a lot of reading. So don't expect to see the winners before the anniversary.

    And I'm pretty sure there will be a lot more then 5 stories a shard. :)
