We are a little lazy so deal with it...

200 words should be long enough to get your point across without adding too much fluff.

200 words is to ensure you guys don't ramble on just to fill in words to make a quota. Remember that one of us is a teacher. So with that being said just make sure it is to the point. Long drown out speaches that put Ares or SP to sleep will be null and void. So make it good to keep our attention.

200 word total - nothing less, nothing more. You have to be concise and specific in this contest!

Not sure. Have to get a concensus with the mods. You know, a lot of regular contests would have thrown it out since it didn't follow the guidelines. However, I'm sure we'll discuss it and let you know.
