Bah! It's pretty obvious that at this point anyone who didn't post a story would be shit on by nearly everyone else in the event. Just seems like more than the minimum is more than expected :O. That's not to say that zelda shouldn't have been given shit and I think he should be banned because that was horribly cheap and unfair.
I disagree about this year being more entertaining though. While there's definitely more participants, I just can't even bring myself to sit through an entire "story" from some new person that I don't give a shit about. Jixby's stuff was good, and I imagine that chojin, schimid, ninja and a few others will have some funny stuff again, but I kinda don't even bother reading the stuff that accompanies the pictures of the newer people.
I'm just not gonna say anything else if I can help it because I'm sounding like a disgruntled "vet" when all I wanted to do was say that last year was better
Edit: The fact that there was a kid who looked like he was 10 entered in this was hilarious though.
