Sweet. Thanks, all. I knew my fans loved me.
The rumors about me are scurrilous, depraved rantings of a sick mind, and I categorically deny any sense of falsehood attributed to them.

Um, from my vantage point I think we're both standing on that winner's platform, basking in equal glory.

Yes, but if I congratulate me, at the same I congratulate you, I think seems odd. Not the way you did it mind you, but the way it would have sound if I'd said, cheers to you and me.

When I was running the contest, I wanted to figure out a way to acknowledge the monthly winners on the subject line of their stories. Of course, as far as I can tell, the only way to do so requires the writer to put Monthly Winner and the month and year behind the title. Seems a bit self-aggrandizing if I do it myself. I mean, modest and shouting "I'm the winner" don't go hand in hand. I wanted to this to have the visitors see at glance stories that had one here. Yes we have limited voting, limited participation, still we don't have bad entries in this contest.

My idea is also, it promotes the winners other stories, it will encourage other people to participate, and hopefully will encourage more voting.

Army of One, what are your thoughts on this? Everyone, please, what do you think?

That’s a cool idea. I wouldn’t begrudge anyone noting if they won.

Congrats Millie and SoftGameHunter.  Both were amazing stories.

Is there some flair thing that can be added on by the mods for that?  Otherwise editing the main post could work.  I am not above gloating, bragging, or sticking my tongue out and following that up with the Ace Ventura "Looohoo Seeeherrrr."  But that's just me.
Always close the program you were running before exiting the holodeck

Belated congratulations 90lbsofdynamite and SGH! I'm so looking forward to catch up reading.
