Sign-ups for the finish-a-thon are now CLOSED!

We had fifteen authors sign up, which is one more than last year!

I will either start posting the polls shortly, or I will start tomorrow.

The deadline for sign-ups has passed, but I am extending it another 12 hours, because Certain People who said they were going to sign up... appear to have forgotten about the time-difference. Again.

This is the post where we jump up and down and squee about the bunnies and stories that people are offering to write. And quite possibly try to persuade others to vote for our favourites when voting time comes.

So come and delight and be expressive! (Or just go "guh!"; we don't mind)

(Edited to add) See the list of authors or the full list of author info to see what there is to squee about!

Announcing... finish-a-thon 2012! Yes, we're doing it again.

Remember all those poor, neglected plot bunnies that have been starving from lack of attention, because all those ficathons kept on having higher priority? The stories you wish you could finish, if only you could find the time? Well, fear not, the finish-a-thon is coming to the rescue!

The finish-a-thon is a ficathon, with all the ficathon-like things like deadlines and fellow volunteers to encourage you, but with this ficathon, you write your own ideas. But since part of the encouragement of a ficathon is writing things for other people, what we're going to do, is vote for which story ideas people should write.

I have set up a website to facilitate the ficathon, including a handy-dandy sign-up form which should make entering all the information easier.

PLEASE let me know if you have any problems.

Dates
Sign-ups end:
AEST: Saturday 31st March 2012, 8am
GMT : 30th March 2012, 10pm

Stories due:
AEST: 9th June 2012, 10am
GMT : 8th June 2012, midnight

(more detailed date information is in the Rules and FAQ page)

Note that you can edit your sign-up information as much as you want until the sign-up deadline, at which point editing will be disabled.

[personal profile] kerravonsen
Hello everyone!

I'm thinking of opening this year's sign-ups for the finish-a-thon about mid-March, which is a little earlier than last year.

I'm also wondering if I should change the format of the polls. I don't think anyone chose "participants only" last year, and it would probably be simpler if everyone had the same format of poll, that is the "all interested parties" version. I put it to y'all with a poll. 8-)

Poll #9679 pollpoll
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 13


Do you want the poll for the finish-a-thon to the same for everyone and make it open to all interested parties?

The AO3 collection for the 2011 Finish-a-thon is now up. Sorry for the delay.

http://archiveofourown.org/collections/finishathon_2011

I've also decided not to try to run a Lyric Wheel this year; it's already far past when I said I would do it, and I just don't have the energy. (sigh)
Maybe next year. Maybe not.

My apologies for the delay but I've now closed the polls and processed the results. There were a couple of ties, but for most people, the results were clear.

Remember, the stories are due:

AEST : 25th June 2011, 10am

Sign-ups are CLOSED!

I had intended to open the sign-ups two weeks ago, but I've been distracted by my involvement with the [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang. Because it's taken me all day to fix things up, I've extended the intended sign-up time to a bit under two weeks rather than under a week.
