Details of the structure of a task can be found by scrolling down.
The website plans navigation menu follows the task list.
|Headline:||Competition: "100": go fully online.|
The 100 Word Mini-tales competition has been running since April 2015. So far, the website has been used only for reference and for monitoring of the competition's status. The actual mechanics have been done using email.
We plan to move over to a fully online system, where competitors enter their stories directly on the website, rather than using email attachments.

More will become links as things evolve.
Each task has a state and a priority. The state represents it's position in the following life cycle:
- Not started.
- In progress.
The priorities are based on the MoSCoW method, and are explained below:
- The task must be completed for, and is critical to, the next release.
- The task should be completed for the next release, if time/resource allows.
- The task could be completed for the next release, if time/resource allows and all should tasks have first been completed.
- The task's priority is unassigned. This might be because it is pending review, or perhaps because it has already been completed.
