I like the submission thread. But I do NOT think it should be mandatory! For one, because that would require contestants to put up hosting space for their submission, adding in an extra barrier to submission.Drawmack said:maybe a couple days before the deadline dimwhit could start an official submissions thread. Only for posting your submission and no submission not in that thread will be accepted.
I mainly like the idea of a submissions thread, because it will allow the public to give input on the submissions. It's great that we have so many judges lined up, but more eyes and more opinions is always a good thing.
