I love how the world is ending, but all people care about is to make themselves look good.

Everything appears in a single line when I opened the file with Notepad.

Thanks, I'm glad you like the concept. I figured that if the sun actually did vanish, somewhere there really would be a committee meeting of interdisciplinary alphas trying to resolve the issue, and the comedy of the situation just came naturally.

Different systems use different line endings, and up until recently Microsoft Notepad didn't always handle them properly. Which version are you using? Theoretically it got fixed a few months ago: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/commandline/2018/05/08/extended-eol-in-notepad/ Prior versions of Notepad would put everything on the same line if the text file came from a different system. If you open it directly in your browser it should be okay, but please let me know if it isn't; there ought to be some way to get you a copy with identical text but line endings adjusted for your machine.

Hmm... I have been using up to date Windows 10 machines.

Perhaps their "fix" didn't work.

Per their post that's exactly what that change should have addressed, but I guess something else is going wrong someplace. Are you seeing it okay in the browser? If not I can figure out a way to get you a copy with different line endings.

WordPad seems to work with the entries when NotePad can't read the linebreaks.

Developer

OK, so long as you can read it. I was figuring if you couldn't I could probably just post it in its entirety in the comments here as it is only 198 words.

I like the "Rule by Committee" presented here. This is a great way to get people actively involved and interested in the game. And this mechanic can be transferred to any subject. Very nice.

Thank you. I'm glad you like it.
