Now that we've reached the deadline, allow me to rank the submissions based on my experience.
1. Operation Think of the Children
2. Paradise Cletus
4. Dog Days
5. Homr in sandy chores
Frankly, I have problems with all five submissions ranging from nitpicks to constant irritation, but I guess I'll let them slide given the time frame to work on these mods. #1 and #2 came really close to each other because of such problems. Same with #3 and #4.
I partially agree with you. OTOTC and PC did come very close in the final stretch to each other. However I'm still going to officially announce the winners on Friday the 24th of September 2021. Stay tuned.
