That was my understanding, but I see lots of people talking about the current period as being Q4 2008...
I sent both my entires in June (one in 07, one in 08) so by the WOTF reckoning I believe that's Q3 2007 (HM, for a story that sold at pro rate to the next market it went to) and Q3 2008 (not even an HM, for a story that hasn't sold yet).
And yes, I'm guessing that tchern=tchernabyelo. Some people seem to have trouble with my nickname, I can't imagine why!
Oh, ETA - is luapc on 74? I make 10 rejects = 20, 9 HMs = 36, and one Semifinalist = 8, which sums to 64. Still a phenomenal record, though.

Oh, and regarding quarter finalist. They changed the name from quarter finalist to honorable mention maybe two years ago. Too many people got confused between "quarter finalist" and "Finalist for the quarter." Thus, renamed to Honorable Mention. It's the same thing.

I didn't know we keep score. I found out last week that in my first ever submission to the contest, I got an honorable mention. Yeah! I was bouncing off the walls. I wasn't going to submit this quarter, but now I'm frantically trying to finish a revise and get the story in the mail.
Hey, just found this thread. I've got WOTF pride - three nice tries floating around somewhere.
I can't remember exactly which quarter they were submitted (this is the problem with having two homes... your rejection slips are never around when you need them!) but I'm pretty sure they were 2004, 2005, 2007.
I've lost interest in short stories and instead find I'm more productive (and more skilled) working on my several novel ideas. So if anyone wants to take charge of this beast be my guest. I won't be updating it.
