I see here it says 50 words or less, but on the website it's "exactly six words." Would you mind clarifying?

EDIT: Nevermind, I think I got it. The 50-word flash ended already, but there's another one open for exactly six words? The only thing I'm still confused about is that you appear to have posted this after the deadline for the 50-word flash was up.
