I have word from Skye and Steve and they have chosen winners! They have–and I here take the liberty of quoting them directly–weenied out by allowing themselves two winners in each of the three contest categories. There were too many beautiful, thoughtful entries to choose just three winners.
Contest #1: Would you take the gamble and join the Incrementalists? Winners: chaosprime and Kevin O’Neill
Contest #2: What would be your first project? Winners: Majikjon and evergreen
Contest #3: What have the Incrementalists already done? Winners: skyeyedoc and Dennis_H
Furthermore, the authors have awarded a Gold Star Bonus to SMW for sheer ballsiness.
Congratulations, winners! Please check your email. You should have a message from me that is clearly labeled as being about this contest and I need you to reply to me. If you have already replied to me, please disregard the previous instruction. If you are listed here as a winner and don’t have an email, please drop me a line–> jenphalian “at” gmail.
Finally, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated. This was a lot of fun for our beloved and intrepid authors.
