As a part of three_weeks_for_dw
, we here at philedom
will be running a competition, in order to build community, create fanworks and support XF fan creators on Dreamwidth, and generally have a ball celebrating that the First Fandom Of The Internet is still alive and kicking. For the next 21 days, we will run daily challenges, which will accrue points for those playing. Challenges will cover a wide range of fannish activities, from making fanworks, leaving prompts, leaving comments, playing goofy games, and generally having a ball.
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.
My name is Amal, but you may call me God
Wrong fandom there for a minute, sorry. However, if anyone wants to help out, that would be AWESOME; I do, occasionally, have a life that does not revolve around waving my hands around about the X-Files on the internet. (Very, very occasionally.) I will post a running tally of where people are in the race every day, as part of the daily challenge post; if you see errors in my accounting, please mention them as soon as possible.
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
, 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.) ( click to see the whole schedule )
Q. I have another question!
A. Ask it in comments!
