Gotta say, this is one I'm definitely looking forward to!  Any contest that extends beyond the first 250 words and gets into other aspects is awesome, and this looks like it can be terribly fun!!!


It's official:  I run on coffee and sarcasm.

I'm estimating that NOQS would receive more than 500 entries. About half the entries would be received exactly on 12 noon through various means. And if I'm not wrong, only thirty would be selected from those. It's going to be a tough game, guys. And if you end up as one of those 470, don't feel bad. I would probably be one of you. :)

 

But don't give up just for the numbers. Participate and give your best. Make it tougher for three of them to select. :)

All the best, guys.

We only got 230 entries for Query Kombat last May and that contest had a week to enter. Don't give up hope on getting in.  :biggrin:

I entered at exactly 11:01 which is 12:01 EST. I'm extremely nervous and very excited about hopefully becoming of the top 100 and maybe one of the top picks. Keeping my fingers crossed.

OMFG I SCREAMED LIKE I WON THE LOTTERY!!!! Thank you so very much for telling me Ms. Michelle! Lol now I can focus on work instead of what if this and that lol. My SGT threatened to write me up if I didn't stop checking my phone when I'm supposed to be directing traffic. Now I have to keep my fingers crossed for October 25th.
