If I recall correctly, one of the criteria for a top sim is a balance between dialog and narrative. Is that correct? Would a lack of dialog then disqualify a sim?

Not in and of itself.

It might affect the way some judges rank it, but that's at the discretion of the judges.

Is it alright to aggregate a sim before submission?

I guess this is actually two questions:

1. Is it alright to submit a sim as a single entry, that was initially posted in several pieces (assuming they all were posted in the relevant timeframe?)

and,

2. Is it alright to submit a sim that was posted with open tags, but filling in the tags with the responses that were posted in a different post?

1. If it was originally intended to be written as a single source sim (either by one writer or as a JP) and was split into parts for reasons such as length (separating it into parts to make it easier for the reader, for example), it is alright to submit them as one sim. If I've misunderstood what your asking, please correct me.

2. Not only permitted, but encouraged.

Yay! regarding 2.

Regarding 1, here's what I'm referring to. I did a single narrative in three parts, posted several days apart, each one picking up where the last one left off, labeled parts 1, 2, and 3. I like them enough to overcome my aversion to vanity and submit them, but they work better as a single sim rather than as 3 separate ones. Not to mention it would be weird to have them competing against each other. :) So what I'm asking is, is it alright to submit them as one?

Based on the fact that they were all written by you, and assuming they're meant to be read more or less together, I would say yes.

The Top Sim of 2013 vote is still wide-open, with only about 21% of the fleet having voted so far. Be sure to vote ASAP for the sim you think deserves the title!
