Value Idea Contest Question for Admin

This is my first time to post on this forum so I hope I am posting this right.

I just came across and read the "Value Idea Contest" write-up. Hmmm. What if I just submitted an awesome article but left out a specific section describing management, as asked for in the instructions, because it should be assumed by the reader that they are worthwhile considering the significant share buybacks? :) Can I get a reprive on this requirement or do I have to edit in "Management is worthwhile because of their significant share buybacks"? I could also edit in that their compensation policies are appropriately designed and that the company is owned by both Eddie Lambert and Bill Gates, but this information would be besides the point as far as this particular investment is concerned.

It also looks like this is a "monthly submission" contest? Does this mean that my earlier submission this month counts for the contest but the one I just submitted is not?

Thanks for the explanation

You can submit multiple entries per month. yes you can also edit the submissions by clicking on "Edit" link in the article page.

Fixed. It seems that much of the centerings and such were lost somehow after it was submitted, but its good enough as-is. Also, how does an article with only 5 views in the forum get something like 76 one-star votes within couple of hours, without having even been published? That's a bit strange.

Don't worry about the rating in the submission forum.
