dSC6D Big Bang Sign Ups End MONDAY

hazelwho and I are running the big bang again this year, and it isn't too late to sign up, either for a Primary or Complementary fanwork.

If you have any questions about the challenge, please check out The Rules and FAQ Page.

If you'd like to sign up (and come on, you know you want to), just go HERE before end of day Monday, March 30.


dSC6D 2015 Sign Ups are LIVE

Yes, you read that right - hazelwho and I are running the big bang again this year, and sign ups start well, pretty much NOW!

If you have any questions about the challenge, please check out The Rules and FAQ Page. Currently these link to the 2014 info, but it's pretty much the same this year.

If you'd like to sign up (and come on, you know you want to), just go HERE



First off, YES there will be a Big Bang again this year - hazelwho and I are VERY excited to be running this yet again :)

Updates to the Rules (nothing scary - our goal is to make this a cooler challenge every year) will be posted soonly, but the basics are the same. Sign Ups will be MARCH 11, and Go Live is October 12.

Here's the big change: This comm is becoming the secondary home for the Big Bang, and Dreamwidth will be our main home (posting of works will still be on AO3). Why? Well, mostly because LJ is less than helpful, and apparently hates my computer, no matter which one I'm using. It's been issue-matic for Hazel and I for nearly a year, so we made the decision to move. We'll have posts here as reminders, but sign ups, claims posts, etc. will all be there.

Hopefully this won't cause any complications for y'all. The comm already exists, so we're ready to go. And it let me edit the calendar without any bitching or hoops to jump through, as opposed to LJ (which made me log in THREE times to post this).

ANYhow, enough negativity. more rejoicing! YAY DSC6DBB!!!!!

ETA: Here's a link to the DW comm:



We are LIVE

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! The collection is now live, and it is so lovely to see so many amazing new fanworks!

Give yourselves a HUGE round of applause and a pat on the back - you all deserve it :)

*off to post to main comms so EVERYONE will come see the pretties*

And keep an eye out in the next couple of weeks for a feedback poll from Hazel and I - we're always looking for ways to improve the challenge experience.
