The Geek? Yes, it's a good site. But - ah! You should have seen it before the rebranding! It was legible and a joy to read! All gone now, sadly, and so (mostly) am I because of it ...

I'm sorry, I cannot read this site regularly while the intense white background is in effect. I have eye health issues, and this is painful. I'll still make brief visits, largely for trades and rules questions, but my socializing here is done for now

That's true. Oh well.

This is what I'd also like to avoid, although this solution looks much better than mine, visually speaking.

So, what should we do? Use Chris's poll or use Josh's alternative, namely: no poll, each voter will send me a geekmail?
If you can handle the counting, I'd say email.

I say poll, that usually means more votes.

My Excel skill is at +1, so I think it should be enough.

I like polls for their visibility.

Argh! What should I choose?

What's wrong with "pick your favorite" and then count the number of votes for 1st 2nd and 3rd? Too simple?

It's late here in France, I'm overworked and instead of keeping scratching my head at what would be the best solution while I'm still working for tomorrow's classes, I've decided to favor the geekmail solution instead of the poll.

I've already updated the Voting Thread accordingly and I'll keep tabs on the results.

Anyway, thank you everyone for your quick help

Well, it's not always easy to just pick up one choice.

Wait. We need to decide on how to pick a voting mechanism here. Should we just post our opinions or thumb a previous entry? Or perhaps we should send GeekMail...or create a new poll?

Just send me a Geekmail. If necessary, and requested, I may post regular stats on how the stories fare.

More importantly what method would you prefer for receiving bribes? Do you accept the currency of cookies?

Exactly this. Wow. I'm only 1/3 of the way through reading the stories (7 down, 15 to go!) and -- seriously, folks -- holy freaking crap there are some talented writers amongst us.

I took the assignment of compiling the stories into an anthology.
The stories are in their original order (from the Dropbox). The cover is based on the official contest microbadge. Enjoy the stories!

Thanks you so much Iffix, this is an excellent job. Now let's see what kind of ideas we could come up with to make it reach a wider audience.

Bad idea. Can you imagine having to read 1000 pages of fiction before having to make a decision on which you liked best?

I demi-jest.

I know you're jesting but a large problem could become, even at 133 pages, TL;DR just vote this one.

I didn't take the voting aspect into consideration when I was talking about reaching a broader audience, but you're indeed right, this could become quite cumbersome for some to read through the end.
