From about 11 people I disqualify, 8 was because their hero wasn't finished until deadline. And is it my fault for them to not finish their hero? Orly? So what should I do? Finish the hero instead of them or what?
While the other 3 including you, didn't read the OP carefully thus got Disqualified. Yes, I could've checked every hero before and warned you but if you realized the fact that we had 58 pages and 26 hero contestants and the timing of the contest where it's on the end of the year, it's almost impossible for any host to check it all everytime.
Also, while it is true that NoThlnG could've checked every entry, it is also true that every contestant could have asked, not just NoThlnG but the judges as well as anyone else, if their entry was ok or not. Plus the fact that the penalty for not following the primary challenge was disqualification(written in striking red
), contestants should have taken extra care to read and understand as well as ask for further clarification on the primary challenge.
And also, if NoThlnG made an exception now, it risks other contestants wanting to receive exceptions as well. It would also partly undermine the integrity of the rules, not only of this contest but possibly the next ones as well.
