Do what you want, I've read each as they have been posted but I'll re-read when the contest ends. I haven't decided 'bout comments yet. I do have an entry and I will not be voting for it at all.

Yes, I do wish people would stop saying they have an entry, it's not like this is a list of 30 or something!

The contest announcement page on HToD states only the following:
Judging

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of a number of criteria (originality, creativity, plotting, characterization, various technical aspects, consistency with and handling of elements of the Dune universe as established by Frank Herbert, etc.) by a panel of judges composed of Jacurutu members (in alphabetical order) A Thing of Eternity, Freakzilla, Mandy, Nekhrun, Omphalos, Robspierre, and SandRider.

First-, second-, and third-place winners will be selected by no later than September 30, 2010.
It is assumed the judges will each refer to his or her own personal list of criteria when judging, including both those named above and those not so ("etc.").

Since judges have also submitted entries, it is assumed that any commentary or "votes for self" will be made in complete good faith.

Time remaining for submitting entries: approximately 17 hours and 37 minutes.

You called?

If you are interested Merkin, I've got four works of Dune fan fiction. One complete and three incomplete. Two I am actually proud of and consider worth reading. One I wholeheartedly admit was pointless and boring(which is one reason it is incomplete) and the fourth was just for laughs. They are all on the official Dune novels website forum.

I thought it meant that Nebrois got banned somehow or has deactivated his account. :think:
