Just noticed that this is a "contest". What's the prize? Bragging rights would be enough. But just wondering, nonetheless.

You also win 100 kudos. Collect 3 million of them and you can trade them in for one American cent.

Newbie here. How do submissions work for this, logistics and otherwise?

Miggseye,

Entries are submitted via personal message. Under LC1's avatar you'll see three icons. The one on the far right, the little talk bubble, will open a PM window. You can then copy and paste your entry, but be sure to preview before sending. Sometimes the formatting goes wonky and you'll have to tweak.

Thanks for the clarifications LC1, Laura H and Skylan. Another question. Does the tense of the prompt matter for the competition? i.e. Would one be disqualified if he used "The door opens" instead of "The door opened"?
