and does proper capitalization matter in any way? i am assuming that proper puntuation and spelling does.
and as well, i dont quite understand this. are we to make our story a new thread with the title "ATSSC (story name)"? i have not done a contest like this before, and i dont know where to go to find the answers. i apologize if you have previously answered these questions.

Wait so let me get this straight. WE have to do a story on a thread with at least three characters in it and include the link to the thread that we made? Is that it?
-All titles must include (ATSSC) to be eligible
-The short story must be linked to and based upon ANY single thread within ATS, no matter how new or old.
-There must be at least 3 main characters involved, with one or more who are antagonistic to the other(s). I'd like to see how we handle conflict situations by building solid personalities and setting them against one another.
