Hey, all! I'm posting an explanation of challenges to all my fic comms because I've had several questions from various users regarding how to make a challenge and what they can expect from it once it's completed. So, here are the rules, and I'll be updating the userinfo page with a link to this post. There is one major change in the pairing or character line, and there are a lot of explanations which will hopefully be somewhat useful to you.
I would recommend that everyone read these, even if you have been a member of spn_monthlyfic
for a while and you believe you know. Just to be sure. ^_^*
A challenge should be submitted in the following format:Username:
Pairing or Character:
This is the same format we have always used.
I'm separating the rules into what to do as a challenger and what to do as an author. Yes, every member is both an author and a challenger in this comm. However, there are different concerns depending on whether you're submitting a challenge or writing a fic, and the rules are split up accordingly.( Edited Comm Rules – Please ReadCollapse )
If you have any questions, concerns, comments, suggestions, flames, praises, bribes, or anything else you'd like to throw my way, please feel free to contact me by either commenting to this post, commenting to my personal LJ at kowaiyoukai
, or else messaging me. I'll respond as soon as I can.
These rules are going to take effect starting the February 2009 round, which means that everybody who’s participating in the January 2009 round (along with all of the late challenges from earlier rounds) don’t necessarily have to follow these, even though they should.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this! Hopefully these rules will clarify some problems that have been going around for a while. If there's anything else you need clarification on or are confused about, please let me know. Thanks again! ^_^*
