Um...also soon?

Seriously, though, we are THIS CLOSE!!

For the newer folks, or those who need a reminder, come Monday morning (my time, Eastern, USA, Earth, -ish), I'll finish compiling all the stories and begin sending them out. Keep in mind that it can take a while to get 50+ stories over the wall. The goal is to have them all sent before lunch (my time, Eastern...you get it), but work/life might affect that timeline. I'll keep everyone in the loop here in this thread on when I begin and if there are delays. Just a heads up so no one panics.

Once every story is outbound, I'll warm up the engines on the Guessing, which is located in the Share Your Work arena. Two THREE big items for the Guessing Thread are:

1) There's a 50 post minimum for posting stuff into SFW. Honestly, I'm not sure if that affects replies to threads, but just FYI to anyone below 50.

2) The password to play in SYW is "vista".

3) Based on lessons learned from the last 7 years, we're going to test-drive a more accurate GPD* system. Each day, every participant will be allowed 10% guesses (rounded up) of the total number of stories posted. If we have 50 stories, everyone can make 5 GPD. If, like last year, we have 149 stories**, each participant is allowed 15 GPD. This should help balance the timing between the Guessing Thread being over in 10 minutes and it dragging on for weeks.

Like I said, this is a test-bed for a new system, but it's also YOUR event. If it doesn't work, we can always make changes. Just let me know.

Okay, T-Minus 2 DAYS till the end of the 2019 Sisyphus!

*GPD = Guesses Per Day
