I wasn't implying anything - just joking around - should have used a  .


Sorry about how that sounded. Don't take any of my posts too seriously, especially if they are posted around 2-4am.  

Since it's now been cleared up that the deadline is 11:59pm tonight, I think I will give this one a try. I've got seven hours.

What was the assignment again?

I wish i had known it was due midnight of the day phil posted.  i was under the impression it was exactly one week like he said.  I could have had an extra day to work on mine, I sort of waited until the eleventh hour yesterday (finals were a pain, Emily Dickenson was what gave the batman guys the idea for the riddler.)  Oh well.  

We'll have to settle this time thing out, I'm pretty sure phil has the end all vote, seeing as thigh it's his contest, but I didnt really see anything in the rues saying that the cut-off was midnight, just a week from when he posted.

I'm sure if you nicely ask Don, he'll post it even if it is a few hours late.  He's done so in the past.


Be excellent to each other

What I can do next time is post the genre and theme later in the day...maybe twelve hours later in the day.

Pia -- You always write such academy award nomination material. I can't wait to read your story. Although, I wont know who you are until a tew weeks later. I will try and guess. Probably will have some killing or burning in the script. Maybe even burned pop corn.

...Or you could ummm...just mention when it's due when you post the theme. At first it was at midnight when it switched to Friday, then I assumed it was 7 or 8 in the morning from your post, exactly a week when you posted, and now it's apparently it's at 11:59 tonight, so...what? It would've been nice to know, especially when there may be people participating for the first time.

I've always said that it was one week.  It was other who said that the deadline was midnight of that day.  I thought this made it unfair for thtose in the less fortunate time zones.

As I've understood, the deadline as always been 11:59 a week after the announcement of genre and theme. I don't know what all this fuss is about.

Speaking of which, you got exactly one hour and counting, Pia. Good luck!

Just sent it in with 2 minutes to go.

I just started on it six or so hours ago. It's a rough one, but it does have popcorn.....

Spencer, you're a funny man. You may want to take your comment back after you read it. If not well...

Don't worry Pia, I wrote mine in about 2 hours, read it over once, and sent it in. Hint: I guarantee everyone will know which one is mine!

THERE WILL BE NO VOTING ON A BEST SCRIPT!


What you want to be asking is when the writers' names will be revealed.

I don't understand, aren't the names right next to each script title? I see them, they all say, written by and then they have a name. Am I missing something?

Those names are fake. The real names aren't released until a week or so after the entries have been posted.
