    My marionettes dance well, do they not? They are even unaware of the strings that rule their every movement and thought.

    Bwahahahah!

    Well I posted around 11pm, July 28, China time. So it was definitely early enough.
    Anyways, I love all of the pictures. Every single one gave me lots of great ideas.

    Listen, I really don't care if he lets you participate. I'm not trying to get you kicked out, and I'd be all for being merciful. It's just, you did pass the deadline.

    Central Standard Time and whatever Chinese time you're under are two very different things -- and because he specifically posted that the contest was supporting CST, your post was after the deadline. The reason he posted the timezone was so that even though we are on all corners of the Earth, there would synchronization for all.

    That's all I'm saying.


    And LPspider... is this contest even still on? You're here and I've yet to seen you even post in acknowledgment of the closing.

    Central Time is the time used by the US and Canada. China is about 12 hours ahead of that.
    And the way I saw it was, midnight on the night of July 28th. So we had the entire day of the 28th as well.

    Like you I don't want to argue, I'm just clarifying my position.

    As much as I love seeing Adamant's stash of awesome pictures, but I'd really like to write about one. The one I wrote for the Stormbringer (I think that was the picture's title) sucked so much that I didn't finish it. Maybe I'll just prewrite a story... and hope it gets picked. Then again, I don't have pay pal, so I'd just be writing for fun anyway...

    Paypal accounts are free to make, and if you do online shopping, they can become quite useful. Also, LPspider has said that he would buy something with the money and have it sent to you as an alternative.

    Sorry guys.

    Yes, the contest is still going on - meaning it's still going on as scheduled. It is now closed as of 12 am (midnight) Central Standard Time (posts after then won't be counted - to be fair).

    I need to read through all the stories and make a poll of the top 10. I should have that up sometime tomorrow or Monday - Tuesday at the latest.

    Thanks

    The Room really gives oppurtunity for lots of original ideas and abstracts. It might as well be the root of the best image stories ever :)

    Yes, but it would be too crazy. It would be like A Clockwork Orange, on LSD.

    I always assumed it already was on LSD or whatever psychoactive drug was choice in those days (the 60s?)

    It's...scary, let's just say that. Very violent, but very interesting.

    The movie or the thread?

    I can see it now, we could call the story Quis custodiet ipsos custodes!?!??! and it would be a world wide best seller.

    A new contest, you mean?

    Well the contest ended a bit ago but you can expect to see the next one within a month, probably much shorter.
