Sigh, I’m so tired, guess I’m picking fights now… (I mean, it is a discussion thread)
I forgot the submission compilation is automated by the system, not the staffs themselves.
*heavily sips wine*
So, leaving to the staffs doesn’t mean anything unless it’s first addressed and reported before actual voting thread is made… otherwise, afterward will become a mess if the illegal entry wins- thus costing someone else win (Has staff ever chose another winner when someone won entry is called out). But seeing those entries already in the voting list may cause others to think it’s ok to submit for next contest, so if staff decide to remove any illegal entries after voting period- it would be too late as it’s being seen by everyone in the forum + thread, thinking it’s ok behavior.
Any mess up or problems, the staff have to clean up themselves, so if there’s any issue to discuss with the entries, please PM the staff about it…
*aggressively sips wine* (just kidding, it's a juice box, but close enough)
Like the Repeated Entry (Hope they didn’t lose votes because of this), Multiple Entry by same Team (Guess they didn’t get the memo), Copyrighted Entries (A shame, really.), and that one entry that is not in fact the “original works of authorship on your part and have not been copied, in whole or in part” despite discussing this to them… Looks like that specific entry edited their entry due to the forum being open to comments (otherwise the staff was PMed by them to remove that, which is sad if that was the case, then the staff allowed cheating). I’m sure everyone knows what or who I’m talking about if you’re reading this thread.
