*(Yuletide sign ups in the middle, Oct. 1-9)


Very tentative. Feedback welcome. Trying to fit two weekends into some of these activities. And that's a four-week writing period for 1000 words.

I like it. I feel it gives us more than enough time, even if some participants also do Yuletide. I know that I'll be doing both challenges.

I wouldn't sign up for a creating period that short. I'd have no confidence in my ability to deliver. I assume you're trying not to crash into Yuletide, but maybe stretch it to have things due just after December 25? That would be closer to the length of creation time you had last year.

I was suggesting not reveals but stories due around 26/27th, then reveals around New Year's. Back in the lj Secret Santa days it was pretty common and seemed to work okay despite Yuletide, but perhaps the fest landscape has changed too much for that to work.

Six weeks is my personal minimum to see on a schedule but I know I'm slow - five might be a good compromise for the majority of people.

Either schedule works for me! If it comes down to it, though, I'd prefer the shorter writing period. Far out deadlines don't go well with me.

I prefer the longer writing period given my tendency to write long, but I'm good with either schedule! And I am definitely planning to sign up. :D

btw, do you think shortening the nomination and signup period might help with the time issue? With nominations in particular, it's not a big time commitment for people to contribute those, so it doesn't necessarily need to be any longer than a week or so.

Ah, that makes total sense - in particular, I completely forgot about the approvals/modding side of it! (I've only ever modded single fandom exchanges where the approvals are really easy - it would be much more complicated in this case.)

I think potential schedule 2 works better, tbh. Although maybe shorten the nomination period?

I like potential schedule #2 more because, as I went in my head, omg that's a month to write. I'm one of those writers who jump around on projects when one isn't working so the extra time is nice. Also, I'm one of those who will go back and re-read their submission a million times and edit every little thing. :D

Re: sign ups - I know I've nearly missed sign ups before when the window is shorter, so thanks for giving a bit more time.
