Sadly, this year’s community challenge was not successfully completed. I do have to say that you all did a fabulous job in your attempt to accomplish. There were a lot of extra gifts made.
There will be a few changes next year:
1. I feel that 8 fandoms and 8 characters was a bit too much. So we are going to try 6 and 6 next year. I think that might be a bit closer to an ideal number for this exchange.
2. The following fandoms are no longer allowed to be nominated and will be rejected: The Lord of the Rings – All Media Types, The Hobbit – All Media Types, TOLKIEN J. R. R. - Works & Related Fandoms. I’m not saying you can’t nominate LoTR or the Hobbit, just that you can’t use all media types or group all of Tolkien’s works under one fandom. You can give permission for your creator to draw on other versions in your requests.
3. I am going to have to add to the rules. Breaking these rules will result in a ban from the next round:
b. Deleting the gift for your assigned recipient after the due date
On happier news, I now have a roof! Carpeting is coming next.
Next year’s community challenge has already been decided and it will be different from the past two.
Please post all comments, criticisms and concerns on this post.
Nominations open September 1st.
For the community challenge, I won't have time to update the sheet for awhile. But you have until the reveals date to get those in.
For extra treats I will leave the collection open indefinitely. I will only count them for the community challenge up until creator reveals. I will get the spreadsheet updated in about twenty-four hours.
