And so we start the voting, using a single-elimination bracket, seeded based on when the stories were submitted. Early submitters benefit a little in that the will face fewer challengers. On the other hand, later stories may get read more often, so maybe they will have the advantage.

We shall see… each match will last 24 hours and we should finish by the end of the month unless I’ve messed up my math.
