    Maybe they removed it to judge the stories?

    I just found a link that I used to direct someone to the announcement thread. It led me to an error message that said the following:

    Since I don't think I've done anything to warrant a ban, I think Daniel is only allowing the judges to view the stories. They will reopen it to the public when they are done.

    Did you send it to Daniel? If not, you should PM him.

    PM Daniel if you haven't already. I'm sure he can tell you.

    In my opinion, one shouldn't have to send a private message to (and presumably carry on a private conversation with) the administrator of the site in order to find out why a publicized contest with a cash prize seems to have been erased with no record other than the original announcement.
    Whether it's technical problems, judging, an oversight, what-have-you, the professional thing to do is to post some kind of information letting those invested in said contest (ie: the community) know what's going on.
    After two days, there shouldn't still be a mystery surrounding it.

    This. Yes please. A one line Admin post explaining the situation would be enough. It doesn't have to be fancy. It would be much appreciated.

    Okay. Whatever the reason, Daniel will surely explain when he has a chance. All the speculation and complaining adds no light.

    Closing the thread.
