    Thanks to everyone who has submitted. Before I make any final decision, I will poll my friends to see what think. They may judge things differently than I have and I will consider their feedback in my decision as well.

      "At Amazon, sending out every one our customers’ orders as fast as possible is of the essence; our Fulfillment Center associates have been failing to get packages out on time. Internal investigations findings point to their placing new products into boxes too slowly due to having to reach and walk around bottles of urine. From Monday, August 27, associates will be granted 3 minutes worth of restroom breaks per 10-hour shift. Employees will each be assigned a restroom card which they will hold up to a card scanner installed outside of the restrooms. Failure to record restroom visits with restroom cards will result in suspension of restroom privileges for one week."

      Early this morning, reporters from major media outlets gathered in Amazon Fulfillment Center (Amazon’s name for warehouses) parking lots around the U.S. to interview employees as they arrived for work. One unnamed Etna, Ohio, employee who works on the Shipping, Labeling and Mailing line said, "I was used to saving my Mountain Dew bottles, but hey, now I can buy cans. Savings!" When asked by a N.Y. Times reporter if she thought the new bathroom privilege is a welcomed relief, an unnamed manager at Amazon’s Glen Ellen, Virginia, FulFillment Center said, "I mean, my wallet is so full of cards already. I don’t know where to put another one!"

    Contest Holder,

    Please remove the line that says Freelancers can upload work to your site and the link to your site.

    As Freelancers, we are instructed to submit works through the Freelancer work portal. This is the only way we (both Contest Holders/Employers and Freelancers) are covered by Freelancer.com's protections and arbitration process in the event of any disputes.

    I know it's super-convenient to use your site! But the practice of uploading work solely to an off-site portal is a bad idea for all of us involved. Typically, we only do that (with Google Docs or something) after a record of our work and submission is logged here with Freelancer. At the very least, that record is important.

      Got it. I left the link so that the users can see how it looks when/if published, so they can get an idea of what I am looking for, but I will only be accepting and reviewing the submitted PDFs now.

    Contest Holder,

    Why do all the links on your site, which you have directed Freelancers to, simply link to Amazon products?

    Are you a not a satirical article website? I can't find any such content on the site. All I see are Amazon product links.

      Good question. It is a unique site. It allows anyone to create their own satire. You then get a URL that you can share on Facebook or Twitter etc.. Ultimately, I do NOT want to be producing any content. Rather I would like others producing content and sharing with their community.

    I think pictures are nice, but 3 is NOT necessary. Also, feel free to write more sentences if you like. Ultimately, just looking for some entertaining satire. To see more about how it will all be formatted, check out Haldra.com.

    So, do you need the article to be under 10 sentences?
    Also, are the 3 images really necessary in every article?
