Sign-ups are now CLOSED

Yes, after months of delay, the sign-ups are here at last.

Announcing... finish-a-thon 2010! 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. This system is slightly different to how it was done last year (while I'm using a wiki again, I'm using a different wiki).

PLEASE let me know if you have any problems.

Dates
Sign-ups end:
Australia - Saturday 12th June 2010, 8am
Rest of World (GMT) - 11th June 2010, 10pm

Stories due:
Australia - 14th August 2010, 10am
Rest of World (GMT) - 13th August 2010, 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.

This year we're doing it a little differently; 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.
Thank you to all the people who helped me test it; the test data is all deleted now, so if you "signed up" in the test, then you now need to sign up for real (if you're signing up, that is).

Dates
Sign-ups end:
Australia - Saturday 21st March 2009, 8am
Rest of World (GMT) - 20th March 2009, 10pm

Stories due:
Australia - 27th May 2009, 10am

The Rest of the World (yes, that includes America):
(Greenwitch Mean Time)

[personal profile] kerravonsen
Since [livejournal.com profile] rubynye just sent me a message saying she couldn't finish her finish-a-thon story, I figure that now is a good time to post the "help I can't finish" messages post.
If you find that you can't finish your finish-a-thon story, then comment in this post, so that I know (and so that all the non-finisher information is in one spot).

kerravonsen: Second Doctor about to type in the Land of Fiction: "Fanfic: everyone does it" (fanfic)
[personal profile] kerravonsen
Here is the voting for the finish-a-thon 2008! There are 21 participants this year.

Voting is now CLOSED.

Each participant has a list of plot-bunnies to vote for. Following that are two polls for each participant. The first poll is for anyone to vote in; the second poll is an extra vote for participants. You cannot vote in the second poll unless you are a member of [livejournal.com profile] multific and a participant.

Participants:
1) Can vote in all polls. You don't have to choose the same thing for your "extra" vote as for your initial vote. You don't even have to fill out your extra vote if you loathe the idea.
2) For the polls about your own bunnies, click on the "I am the author" option.

Everyone else:
1) Vote in only the first poll for each participant.
2) If you accidentally vote in the second poll when you shouldn't have, click on the "I am not a participant" option.

If you make a mistake, click on the link above the poll that says "Poll #NNNNN", then click on the link that says "Fill out poll", and you will then be able to correct your mistake by filling out the poll again.

I CANNOT CORRECT YOUR MISTAKES FOR YOU. The security of the polls do not allow me to alter any of the votes. As it should be!

Voting will finish at midnight GMT, on the 23rd of August; that's a week from now.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2 for posting the unofficial master-list, but since I can't edit that post to update the links, it seems that I have to make a new Official Master-list post. So here it is. (I am only semi-here, see this post for details)

the master-list )
Not heard from, and therefore in danger of being blacklisted next year:
Trinity Day [livejournal.com profile] trinityday
Lee [livejournal.com profile] southernbangel
Keyla Sheppard [livejournal.com profile] neverbelonged/[livejournal.com profile] viri_amore
Krista [livejournal.com profile] taskir

Karen [livejournal.com profile] hyperfocused
[identity profile] astrogirl2.livejournal.com
I've received word via [livejournal.com profile] watervole and [livejournal.com profile] kalypso_v that [livejournal.com profile] kerravonsen, your finish-a-thon mod, has suffered a major computer meltdown and is going to be offline for a while. The finish-a-thon must go on, however, and she's asked me to stop in here and ask people to please post their stories.

Now, bearing in mind that I have absolutely no moderatorly authority whatsoever (and thus can't do anything official, such answer any of your ficathon-related questions or grant you an extension because your dog died), I'm happy to collect story links right here until she gets back. Just leave 'em in the comments to this post.

I'm looking forward to reading what everybody's come up with! And here's hoping [livejournal.com profile] kerravonsen is back with us soon.

[ETA: The official master list can now be found here.]

[personal profile] kerravonsen
Please, DO NOT post "I haven't been able to complete the finish-a-thon" announcements here. The proper place and time to inform me is when I put up the master-list post, and you can tell me in comments there -- that way, everything is all in one place and I don't have to go hunting around for it or trying to remember who said what.

Please.

The voting for the finish-a-thon is now over! Unfortunately some people did not follow the instructions, which means all votes needed to be double-checked (sigh). Forgive me if I missed errors.
Last year I mentioned close runners-up, but there's so many people this time, I don't have time to.

Dumroll please...

Note also that LadySmith requested participants only for her voting, but some non-participants have voted -- PLEASE go back and correct your votes! (Yes, you can do that. Click on "View Answers" and then click on "Fill in poll" and select a blank answer to remove your incorrect vote).

I also notice that some non-participants have been voting in the participants-only sections. Correct those too, ASAP.

Please note: this does NOT mean that if you didn't finish last time you can't participate. I wasn't intending on naming names, but I guess I'll have to.

A number of people have been asking me about whether there will be a finish-a-thon this year, and when it will be. So I thought I'd just mention here, that, yes, there will be a finish-a-thon, but it is going to be earlier this time, so as not to clash with Christmas things as well as not clashing with NaNoWriMo. The vague dates are:

Sign-ups: mid-August
Writing starts: start of September
Due date: end of October

Anybody interested should friend this community, because this is where announcements are going to be.

This is the Master-List for the Finish-a-thon 2005! The stories are due TODAY. Participants, post your story somewhere (a web page, your LJ) and give the link in a comment to this post; I will update the main post.

Your story must be posted whether it is finished or not. Whether it is beta-read or not. Just give us what you have so far, letting us know in the comment whether it is finished, unbetaed, or unfinished. But don't panic. I am allowing another week for participants, if they so desire, to post revised versions; just give another comment to this post, letting us know that there is a revised version available (and give an updated link if it needs one). I will update the master-list.

Note for readers: the stories here are an enormously wide mixture, from G to NC-17, gen to slash to anything in between. Caveat Emptor!
