I noticed two very disappointed guys who thought they were included in the contest but in fact were not, because they didn't follow the instructions. I was thinking maybe some kind of "OK, you're in" confirmation via PM or post to each entrant, but that kind of hand-holding would require even more work from the mods. If they can't find or follow the instructions to begin with then they won't follow the "you're in when you get accepted" instruction.
Each entrant editting their original "I'm in!" post with their post count and project count was a great idea. There was a disturbing post about the possibility of revising a starting post count downward to fake the number of posts needed to qualify. Is that a real issue? I'm pretty sure it didn't happen in this past contest (I was watching posts and calculating odds of winning, just for grins) but if it's a threat some additional oversight may be needed.
