    So I couldn't help but notice that four of five of the stories this round were edited after the competition began. One of the first, which was the start of the competition, another on the second, the day after the competition started, and two on the fourteenth. Now, I was under the impression that editing the story after the competition started was against the rules. Which seems like it would result in disqualification. I can possibly understand the edits on the first and second if you take into acount time zones and perhaps some concept that you can edit until your round starts. This round however started before the 14th. Which means those that voted for one of the two edited stories before the fourteenth read a different quality story than those of us that are voting after. Which may not be fair to the other three stories in the round.

    Ultimately the call is up to Buoy.

    Entries didn't close until August 2nd, so the only ones violating any 'editing' rule are the ones done on the 14th. However, both Princess Crow and Jake434 only have that Aug. 14 edit history for adjusting their titles. Princess Crow edited "Needs Grade" out of her title, and Jake edited "Needs Grade" into it. Hardly a reason to be upset about it...

    Regardless, disqualification for them is out of the question. Not only was this never an issue in past competitions, it's not stated in the rules of this one - if, that is, it were going to be implemented. You can't punish someone for breaking a rule that isn't written anywhere.

    I had no idea what had been edited as I don't have mystical mod powers to see that. I only intended to point that out. The reason I assumed it was a rule was because when Buoy graded my story I was told I was not allowed to edit after the first. I wasn't trying to come off as upset or anything. Merely pointing out something that went against how I understood what I had been told by the gentleman running the competition. ^_^
