At first we had thought we'd try and contact everyone and get them to re-submit their entries, and that would mean running the Current Affairs topic until next Thursday to give everyone time to do that. Then we would have to use a different topic after (instead of Guard Your Heart because everyone would have had a week to think about it). That would also mean we'd have to run the Challenge a week longer for this quarter, which isn't great (because we need to wrap things up for the Best of the Best).
But then I realized the easiest way was to re-submit everyone's entry for them. So it was a case of copying (just copy and paste) the original entry into a new submission box for each member (including adding any HTML they may have used on the original). I may have missed the odd italics here and there but hopefully got most.
I think God was looking after us by having fairly low numbers for this topic (about 62 I think). It made my job a little quicker than it would have done on one of our recent weeks. Also, less people seemed to go for the HTML this week, so phew!
It took about four hours to do (with family interruptions), so not too bad. I was just extremely happy we were able to come up with a reasonably easy solution. All's well that ends well.
