wait, we can make the contest pages ahead of time? Or is this a special case for Crayne?
From the contest rules page:
- You may post this page at any time between 22 November and 6 December, though staff may give you permission to post a blank page early.
From what I understood, he's going to either be out of town or otherwise engaged when the contest opens at 12:01 AM EST on 11/22/2013. Since his work is already finished, he wanted to be sure he got in at the same time everyone in the US gets to post their entries. I agreed to do this for him, but had reservations about making sure that the page would be properly attributed if I did.
Looks like he got permission from someone to post the blank early so that the page I posted would be his page. If some disconnect has happened, I'm sure he wouldn't mind if Staff contacted him to confirm or discuss.
From the contest hub Q&A:
Q: But what if I'm gone on November 22nd?!
A: Do the following:
- At any time before you leave, post a page to the site labeled '2000contest<yourusername>' with your site user name in place of <yourusername.> Leave this page blank! Or, optionally, put a notice asking people not to vote, but otherwise leave it blank.
- Assign a friend to post your draft on November 22nd (you can also ask a member of staff to do this for you).
I was just making sure my downvote was in ahead of time…. :P If you cannot tell by the smiley, t'was a joke.
