fic comments and rule change for next year

Posted by: </a></b></a>prozacpark

Tomorrow it will be a week since the stories went up, and this is your friendly mod-reminder to leave a comment on the fic that was written for you as a gift. If there’s a reason that you can’t/don’t want to comment, please, get in touch with the mods and we will do our best to accommodate you.

This is also good preparation for next year, when we will be introducing a new requirement for the challenge: you’ll be required to comment on the fic written for you and failing to comment will be grounds for ineligibility for the following year.

The only exception to this would be if the fic written for you specifically uses things you outlined as squicks/triggers, or is in another ways racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/etc. We will also work to accommodate you if you have issues with anxiety re: commenting and work with you.

This is one of those things that was always understood to be a requirement for an exchange, but we have had some issues with it the past few years, and it’s something that should’ve been a part of the rules already and now will be in the future.

Archive Opens... SOON

Posted by: </a></b></a>aphrodite_mine

Welcome to the last day of April. That means our archive will go LIVE in three days, on May 3! If everything appears ready to go, we'll open as soon as possible on that day, and so far we seem on track to go live then!

Pinch hitters: Keep going! If you are coming against any issues, email me asap!

All other participants: If you haven't already, take a final look at your story. Make any last-minute edits, or changes that a beta got back to you after the deadline. Make sure to hit PUBLISH rather than Save as Draft, because we want everyone to see your lovely finished work!

If you have the weekend free and would like to write some mini gifts (of any length, really), the collection is open for stories! 

Thank you all so much!
