Hi there, I have a question. I have a cheat sheet for Heredity which should be good for Genetics Division B. The problem is it's only 3,372 words and 14 images. The cheat sheet is only 2 pages for the event so should I extend it/change it into notes and add more or leave it as is? Thanks!
Great question! You will probably have to extend to 7k words, maybe 6k. There's some flexibility, but 7k usually gets submissions closer to completion (pending quality, etc). You CAN go shorter with good / original content, like your own images / tables (example SSSS notes on wiki event pages).

Changing to non-cheatsheet notes usually makes the content more clear for review / use. We handle cheatsheets case by case because they can be more difficult to review (e.g. Small text that's hard to scan), and people have complained that they don't want to share them (in the past, people thought they had to share all the info from their cheatsheets or making their notes were basically like sharing their cheatsheets...fair enough, not the point of notes then).

Unrelated: We've gotten quite a few submissions, keep up the amazing work as always! I can give more specific updates/some numbers upon request, but we haven't gotten submissions for (note you should do whatever event you want to work on, but sometimes people are curious about this)...
All build events, ChemLab, Crime Busters, Density Lab, Designer, DyPlan, ExpD, Fossils, Geomaps, Mystery Arch, Protein Modeling, Shock Value, WIDI
Thank You so much! Hope you are having a great summer! ;)

Can one of the mods for the SSSS confirm that they have received my email?

It has now been more than a week since I submitted my notes, and I still haven't heard back yet. Did you just stop accepting new submissions or what?

I am pretty sure that I accepted your submission. Please recheck your email.

Hi, I submitted my DP test around a week ago and I haven’t heard back yet. Could a mod look over it and let me know if I need to edit anything? Thank you so much!

It has been received. Sorry, I'll bug the mod until they do it (I would've replied to your email yesterday, but I was out and about >.<). There are also one or two other submissions off the top of my head about that haven't been replied to that I'm...trying to get a mod to work on.

I can confirm that an email was sent...I'll just resend it since that'll be faster (sorry, I didn't realize there were still issues with this other than file uploading). If that still doesn't work, maybe we can switch to email/PM so I can do things like confirm email (obviously not posting that), etc.

Mods, sorry for the extra bugging... I was wondering if you guys have received my Potions and Poisons Test for the SSSS. My email is pretty flaky and doesn’t send sometimes, and I hope this isn’t one of those “times”. Thanks!
