[Round 6] Comprehensive Update Hopefully

 Hi! I hope everyone has had a marvelous weekend! We're now into August and that means that stories should be done. Unfortunately, things are still a bit difficult on my end so if you're not done, don't worry too much about it. We use the honor system around here and if you say you're done or that you'll be done with it soon, we trust you. :) 

Note one: What I mean by "complete" is that your story should be completely written. If you still need to do some minor re-writes, some editing, or beta-ing -- that's absolutely fine! Also, I've been pretty spotty lately so if it isn't complete -- that's absolutely fine too! I know that you'll get there!

Note two: For archival purposes, we would love if authors sent us copies of their stories once they're "post"-ready but this is not mandatory. If you want to send us a copy of your story, email it as an attachment to scifibigbangmod at gmail dot com with "Final Draft from USERNAME" in the subject line. In the body, please include your username, the names of the artist and beta reader(s) you are working with, the story title, fandom, rating, and a story summary.

Something we still need to discuss is posting dates. If authors and artists feel like (even with all of my late announcements) they can have their work ready by the original start of posting on August 21st, then I'll draw up a calendar for those dates. If not, leave a timeframe in the comments that better works for you. That being said, I'll still be posting the Posting Guidelines later tonight, so that either way everyone knows what to expect!

Finally, there are still 6 (five and a half) awesome stories that have not been claimed, so head on over to the art claim post if you're interested :)

As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, or if I missed anything let me know!

I'm set in terms of the actual writing of the story but I should check with my artist for a posting date that would work best for all concerned. As for myself any date from August 21st to September 1st would be ideal, mainly because I will be out of the country from the 2nd of September until the 12th of September and then I have my cousin's wedding on the 19th of September.

Thanks and take care, Karrenia

I'm, er, not exactly done with my story but I should be good to go by the beginning of September, so if I can have a later posting date, that would be great! (It just keeps ballooning on me...) And I can definitely have the art I promised done by the original due date.
