Er...just so you know, there's a couple of other places in the announcement post where it says '2014' instead of '2015' - including how to tag our posts :)

Thank you, Kaylee! Fixed now, I hope. I had made the changes previously, but apparently failed to hit save changes. *sigh*

*Hugs* Yes, fixed :) You're welcome. I'm looking forward to participating!!

(Donut is hoping whatever I write, there will be fish...*shakes head at seagull* I think I'm stuck with this silly bird for a Muse. :P )

I have a couple of questions. Well, not so much questions as oddities.

1. I'm actually still seeing 2014 instead of 2015.

2. The link to the community guidelines doesn't work for me; I've tried on three devices. It brings up a "server cannot be found" page.

Sorry to be a bother!

Thank you for pointing this out, we'll fix it ASAP.

Is it possible to volunteer for the pinch hit list without signing up for the exchange? And if so, how should one do this? (I'm not sure yet whether or not I'll sign up -- I'm still dithering -- but I enjoy pinch hitting when I can.)

Yes it is. Many participants don't want to pinch hit, but we always ask, as we need a good pool to choose from. It all depends on what the story prompt involves as to whether a pinch hitter is a good fit.

And I do not believed we've ever had a year in which at least ONE pinch hitter was NOT needed.

Oh, I have another question. Is there a due date for the fics? I couldn't find it in the rules. Or do they just need to be posted by New Year's Eve?
Nov. 21st, 2015 08:06 pm (UTC)
The answer is at point 4 of the sign up post:

4. Stories will be posted directly to the lotr_community, where they will remain hidden in the moderator's queue until the reveal date. The stories will be revealed on New Year's Eve (December 31, 2015). You may finish and post your story early, although we ask that you wait until after November 17, in order to make sure that all of the regular November stories have cleared the moderator's queue.

Emphasis mine.

Yes, I saw that it said when the stories will be revealed. However, many fic exchanges have a due date that is a week or several days before the fics are revealed, and even at this comm, the stories are usually due in the queue on a date that's earlier than the reveal date. That was why I was asking if there was a separate due date. Thank you for the answer, however.

In the same entry and at point 4, you will see that stories can be posted after November 17.

But I suspect our dear challenge mod left the old date there (a non challenge mod is acting as a subsitute until she gets back).

The reveal date for the November 2015 challenge is actually Monday, November 30. I will fix that in a minute.

We kindly ask this so that all of the regular November stories have cleared the moderator's queue and we can start the queue for the Yule fics. So let's say you are being trampled by your muse/plotbunny, you can add your yule fic story as of the 1st of December. If you for some reason cannot make it before New Years eve, do let us know. Also do keep in mind that once in the queue, LJ unfortunately does not allow you to edit it.

Hi! I've heard that assignments are out but I haven't had mine?
Nov. 29th, 2015 01:52 pm (UTC)
I sent it this time through LJ PM, since I don't know what went wrong with the email.

You did get your first choice; details in the PM.
