Well, this is it. With these last few headlines from the last week of November, we now have a full list of our candidates for Headline of the Year 2013. Totalfarkers have been voting on preliminary contests for Mainpage headlines for the last week and a half, and they'll start voting on preliminaries for the subtabs starting today. If you needed an excuse to get TF and wish you'd had the opportunity last year to vote for some of the headlines that you thought deserved more love, this is your chance to influence the contests this year.
I'd like to start the first quarterfinal contest on the Main page tomorrow; we'll see how things go today. This is well and truly crunch time for the contests; the formatting is the part that takes the longest, unfortunately, but just at the end of last week Meg wrote up a bit of code that will cut down a tremendous amount of time moving forward. Thanks Meg!
So with that said, enjoy these headlines and get ready for the really fun stuff.
