N.310 & N.313 are both in Julia's fairies.

I believe both problems - 310, 313 - shouldn't be shown as originals here, but as Julia'sFairies-2013/I and Julia'sFairies-2013/II.

I have published the announcement with examples in the same view as I received the diagrams labeled "original". I thought that they were composed as examples for the tourney and they are originals in the announce (first published in Quartz). Of course I will correct diagrams when I go back home.

Yes, Diyan, I believed it's Quartz, not you originally!

The diagrams are corrected now. Paul, Julia many thanks for your notes and I apologize for the mistake. Hope the tourney going to be successful.
