The Fourth Nonsense Writing Contest - Prizes Worth 25 STEEM - Extension to Wednesday 4 March (Apologies for any inconvenience)


This is a genuinely quick message.

I am extending this Fourth Nonsense Writing Contest till Wednesday 4th March.

The theatrics of the Steem blockchain saga hide a lot of scurrying around in the background; fixing things that stop working, washing the dishes and making sure we don't set fire to the house in the process.

If you haven't heard the fire alarm bell, please read An Open Letter to the Community - HF22.5.

So, a huge thanks to everyone who has submitted their writing. I am going through it all as soon as I can.

In the past, these two days would have been the voting period, but dpoll has switched itself off anyway.

But for now, a small pause for 2 days.

During this time-out, I wonder if there is any interest in a Nonsense community?

How would it be different to all the other nonsense that takes itself seriously?

Anyway, if you have landed here by accident and have no idea what any of the above means, then please read the contest rules in the first post.

Back soon!
