Sweet new guessing tool, m3mnoch!

But how did it select passages from the stories?

And sweet, our guesses are now in blue, in case you got who you attributed to what  ::)

Between, I just tested it, then decided to "erase" it by submitting a blank guess, but that still counts with 1 vote and a blank line.

i skimmed and grabbed something that looked unique.  just as a reminder of what the story was about.  if you guys want a different quote in there, holler at @xiagan and have him send it to me.

And I missclicked and submitted a 2nd blank vote for the same story and now I just get an entire blank screen whenever I access it...

Nevermind, it's back to normal. But the blank guess is still there as a "vote".

It also adds "%20" if the name has name and surname with a space between!

And the blue tint disappears from your guesses if you leave then go back!

Aaaaaah wait, please wait @m3mnoch !!! I didn't send the final edit of my story!!! I was taken away all day but there are some massive typos due to submitting at stupid times. Would it be possible to put the Ebook on hold?! Everyone is gonna download the unedited version  :-X :'(
I'm stupid I was pulled away all day.

What does Norousing imply?!

@m3mnoch I'll let you know as soon as I'm aware the changes are on. Bea is doing it so probably depending on her being awake!
