Q. How do I earn points?
A. Just complete the day's challenge! (There is no need to complete it on the day listed; for instance, if you post a fic of more than 300 words on April 25, you can earn credit for it on May 1.) For some of the challenges, you will need to post links proving that you, for instance, posted a comment or prompt. For others, your reply to the daily challenge post will count as your points-earning (such as hangman or macro-making).
Q. Who will be judging and running this?
A. I, amalnahurriyeh will take point on this, so to speak.
Q. If this is a competition, then there should be prizes.
A. You are right, despite not having asked your question in the form of a question! We are still determining what the prizes will be, but they may include such excellent things as Dreamwidth points, banners, or...other things. (Ahem. Community members are welcome to help me think up ideas here.)
Q. What is the schedule?
A. The full schedule of challenges is below the cut. If I have magically missed any days or done something like that, please let me know. (Many thanks to heart_equals, rustingwillpowr, and rhi for their help in designing this!) I am in the eastern US; therefore, "daily" posts will be made sometime on the day in question in my timezone. (In deference to the many possible players located to my east, I will try to make them right around midnight my time, since I'm usually up.)
