Sorry you are annoyed
I do not get email notifications when someone posts on any threads I am a part of, only PMs.
Armando, it isn't particularly my job to respond to your "explanation." It isn't particularly anyone's. But I want to say a few things.
First, a genuine apology doesn't begin "Sorry you . . ." It begins "Sorry I . . ." You apologize for your own behavior, not for someone else's reaction to it. That's what being sorry is about.
Second, judging a challenge doesn't depend on e-mail notifications. You keep track of the challenge on your own and show up when you said you would.

The challenge begins when posted, and will end at 6PM Eastern Daylight Time (or midnight in the UK, which is where I'll be) on Monday, Sept. 12, 2016 [It turned out that you wouldn't be in the UK, that you had simply pasted this from the previous winner's announcement, apparently without looking at it.]
The winner will be announced at some point the next day
Did you really need to be notified by e-mail that Tuesday, Sept. 13, had rolled around?
Your next post baffled me:

Congratulations Sibil, and excuse my delay.
I hope you get the email notifications.
Why congratulate Sibil? He didn't win, darkslinger did. Darkslinger has already started the next challenge. (And e-mail notifications are irrelevant. Darkslinger, no doubt, owns a calendar.)
Then it flashed on me that you must have thought you were still judging the entries and you were just a little late. You hadn't read the whole thread. You didn't know that in your absence the members found it necessary to do something different. May I suggest reading the thread now? You can start with teekay's excellent statement in Post #11. It's about responsibility.
