Since day one of this years Napo I've been submitting my entries just about an hour before midnight and just write what comes to my mind, and since this quarantine I can only think of covid19 to write on. Tonight it's few minutes before midnight when I edited my entry just enough time to make it to day five and the internet was very slow. I'm glad I made the posting in time.


Here's the thing, even if you don't post before midnight, it's okay. You tried, and that's the important thing. You could've just as easily posted it after midnight, with a note explaining why you will be double posting that day.

The reason for the note requirement is accountability, not to us ( Johnny or me ), but to the entire NaPo group.  The first two years too many entrants were gunning it whenever they wanted without an explanation.  We have learned that requiring a public explanation serves two purposes: firstly, it cuts down on late posts by 75% ( at least ); and, secondly, allows other participants and viewers to see the leniency in being late.  

" Oh hey! Yeah! Even if something happens I won't be penalized and lose the award! Maybe I can do this! I'll definitely try next year! "

24 hr edit applies to any poem right? Not a one time thing, as far as I know.

Right.

You are allowed to edit each poem as many times as you care to up until 24 hours have elapsed from the time of its posting.

I have to say that so far and when I get a chance I am reading the poems and am tickled pink at all of the variety and the cleverness and the excellent writings! Keep going everyone!

Finally getting around to commenting on entries today - that's how insanely busy we have been.

I should clarify that I personally have no multi-tasking abilities whatsoever.

Pretty certain entrants understand how busy you are!

Multiply it by 10, that's how busy you are. I don't know how you do it.

When you say comments on entries, do you mean individually as far as offering feedback to poets on their entries and is that public or in private messages?
