    I think the 4th and final entry needs to be done first before we move on to the next task.

    Gosh, I hope I'm not the one who's late getting their entry in. [face_worried]

    I couldn't resist after the quote I got in the Simpson's roulette.

    [face_blush] Sorry guys. Someone is holding us up and the contest is all tied to everyone being able to contribute their stories. I have good reason to believe that the 4th writer will not be submitting an entry so I'm working out how best to salvage the competition for everyone. I'm really, truly sorry for the other 3 writers who are being held up. [face_blush] I'll try and come up with a workable solution before the end of the week.

    The writer contacted the mods and believe me, the situation was truly beyond her control. [:D] Things such as funerals and other family obligations must come first and I'm quite sure everyone understands. :)

    RE - A solution idea

    How about the three writers who were able to finish their entry all attempt the missing story? Don't know how that will affect your rules/criteria for judging and whatever, but it's an idea.

    [hl=limegreen]3rd and Final Task![/hl]


    So guys, I finally figured out how to salvage the competition. I'm really sorry to the three participants who've had to wait for this long. Hopefully next time we host this competition, I will get a firmer commitment from participants before getting so far into the process.

    In order to make this still workable, I've had to remove some of the elements of the 3rd Task. Hopefully this part is still fun.


    1. Everyone is eligible to participate - both the writers and the bunny-submitters.

    2. Your mission if you choose to accept is to guess the user who submitted each bunny and the writer who wrote each story.

    3. You are only allowed one guess which you'll submit in this thread.

    4. Clue - [hl=black]the 3 story writers all participated in the AU Padme Roulette of April 2006.[/hl]

    To refresh our memories, you may find [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?brd=10304&topic=16912827&page=17]the bunnies listed here[/link] and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/The_Saga/b10476/17178473/?0]the stories written here[/link].


    Happy Guessing! [face_clown]
