Sorry I'm so late again with this. This took a lot longer to make than I expected because it's our very last challenge post, so it's a big one, and the general deadness of the fandom wasn't really motivating me. Technically this round already started. Oops!
Before we get to the challenges, I just want to ask everyone who hasn't to please vote in round #10's awards poll!
It was supposed to close weeks ago
, after being up twice as long as they normally are, but we only have 15 votes, the lowest participation ever. I know the VM fandom is on the verge of total death, and that's one of the reasons we're closing, but it'd be really nice if the people who still cared could find the time to give this community one last push.
On that note, round #11
was supposed to close last week, but we only got two submissions! So we'll merge those with the final round. As you'll see, this last list of challenges include all previous challenges, so it's the perfect time to finish up and post that fic you started forever ago but missed the deadlines to.
Now on to the last set of challenges!
The final round of Game On started August 1st and will close Friday, November 5th!
So it's a super-sized round and hopefully it'll give everyone who wants to participate ample time to do so. We also won't be doing an awards poll for the last round; I've got another idea for how the awards will be handed out this time, and I think the change will be for the better.
After November 5th, winners will be announced and then the community will unofficially close, meaning there won't be any new challenges but people can still post any updates to their work or maybe new fics that were inspired by old challenges. ( information, challenges and deadlineCollapse )
Okay, that's everything. I seriously do think it'd be a new challenge itself to write something and have it not fit any of these categories! There's something here for everyone, and since this is the very last challenge round, I hope you guys find the inspiration and time to participate.
As for other community activities, please, if you haven't done so already, vote in the round #10 awards poll
. I still have to announce the winners for rounds 8 and 9, so that'll be coming up eventually.
Thanks guys! If you have any questions, comments or concerns, let me know here. Have fun and good luck with the final round!
