    briking -

    I didn't finish with the polishes on my script until this past weekend. I was going to wait until the 25th, but when Greg said they have received 1600 entries, I figured I might as well submit.

    Right you are. Shame on me for not reading the FAQ all the way to the end. Thanks for showing me the light.

    I am entering on the 27th, as I still have some work to do.

    Anybody else waiting for the 25th to enter or has everyone submitted already? I have three screenplays ready to go, I'm just waiting for the time frame Greg suggested.

    It's really not that frickin hard (especially with FD) to open your draft, change the cover page, and 'Save As'...

    C'mon, really, are people that obtuse that they can write a screenplay yet not follow the simplest directions? Yeesh, even actors can do that!
    Yes. People are that "obtuse."

    And there are versions of FD that don't allow what you are saying. Not everyone is using the same software.

    The idea here is that with large populations there will be varying levels of adherence and skills. The idea is to make it "difficult" to not get it right. Why is this so difficult to understand?
