R_Ravenclaw - You'll need to note that some of the dialogue in the chapter is not your own and credit it to J.K. Rowling along with the page numbers we can find those quotes from. You need not put an asterick next to each quote you've taken from the book though.
Pondering - I'm pretty sure editing your story summary will not affect your story's spot in the queue. You're submitting a chapter, not a story, at a time. It will probably move your story down if you edit the summary while your first chapter's in queue though. I'll do some experimenting and see and let you know if what I told you is wrong.
Just Beyond the Veil - Hmm well it shouldn't affect how moderators receive email. I am able to send and receive email from people with AOL email accounts. We might have overlooked the email and/or Karin might be busy. Can you get her to email me with an explanation on everything she has tried? Thanks.
