Well, the lesson to be learned here is, don't submit an entry within the first five minutes of the thread being public knowledge, good sir.

Talking of November's thread, a word to the wise...
READ THE FIRST POST!!
Yes, I know we always say that, but​
SERIOUSLY.
DON'T TRY AND POST YOUR STORY WITHOUT READING THE FIRST POST AND/OR THE DISCUSSION THREAD FIRST.

I once made a guy put a new server back in all its boxes, then read the READ THIS FIRST documentation, then unpack the server again. A most enjoyable experience.
