February Pair Challenge

Hi everyone! How are your cards going? I hope your prompts are lining up to let you create some wonderful fanworks. However, if you've got the best plotbunny if only that one prompt would be in a slightly different spot, this challenge may be of interest to you.

This post is announcing the February Pair Challenge, in which you can choose any two prompts on your card, regardless of how they are positioned, to combine in a fill which will be scored the same way as a diagonal or mirror-image pair, i.e., minimum of 6000 words, 110 points per 5000 words.


Signups for the February Pairing Challenge are now closed

(This is not where you sign up to receive a card - to do that, go here.)

June Goal Post

In this post you can sign up with a goal to complete by June for bonus points! (This is not where you sign up to receive a card. If you're looking to do that, you should go here.)

The deadline for goal completion is June 1st. As long as it's still June 1st somewhere in the world by the time you reach your goal, you're set! Sign-ups will remain open until then.

Comment to this post with your goal, which should be either the number of squares or the word count that you are aiming to complete. If your goal is to fill a certain number of squares, it doesn't matter whether each square receives its own fill or you combine them into an extra.

Keep in mind that to reach your goal, the completed fics have to be posted to this community, and when you post here it has to be with a bingo or an extra. Allowing for that, the smallest goal possible would be two squares or 6000 words, the minimum needed to complete a diagonal or mirror image pair.

If you post at least one fill to this community before the deadline, you receive 50 bonus points. If you reach your goal before the deadline, provided your goal is more than the minimum 2 squares or 6000 words, you will receive 100 bonus points.

This bonus challenge is supposed to provide a bit of deadline-based motivation to those who find it helpful; if that's not you, feel free to continue with the challenge as you have been. If you'd like me to clarify anything, send a PM or email longficbingomod@gmail.com

December Goal Post

This is the post where you can sign up with a goal to complete by December for bonus points! (This is not where you sign up to receive a card. If you're looking to do that, you should go here.)

It works like this: the deadline for goal completion is December 1st. As long as it's still December 1st somewhere in the world by the time you reach your goal, you're set! Sign-ups will remain open until then.

Greetings longficcers! A poll:

Hi everyone! I've been thinking about this challenge and the way it works. I know the open ended timeframe is useful for people who want all the time in the world to create the longfic of their dreams, but I've also had plenty of people say that deadlines are motivating to them. So what I've been considering is a system where people can opt in to have some number of fics completed by a certain date, and receive some sort of reward if they reach that goal.

I think it should work like this: I create a sign up post with a deadline a few months down the track - say, in December. You comment and suggest how many fics you think you can finish and post here by the date (remember that when you post fills here, they must be in the form of a bingo, or extras.) If you finish at least one fic by the deadline, you receive some reward - an extra 50 points, perhaps. If you complete as many fics as you committed to, and that's more than one, you receive a larger reward, like an extra 100 points. No penalty if you don't meet your goal, this is just supposed to encourage completing fics. Sign-ups would remain open right up to the deadline date.

I've created a poll you can complete to say whether you think this is a good idea/something that would be useful to you, or you can leave your feedback here in the comments. If there's interest, I can get a sign-up post together later this week.

Beta Post!

The fabulous telm_393 suggested that a post for finding betas might be useful, so here it is! This post is for finding a beta or offering to beta works created for longfic_bingo. Just comment to this post if you wish to do either.

Longfic bingo AO3 collection

Longfic bingo now has a collection on AO3. You can find it here. Any work written for this community can be added to the collection, provided you've signed up and have a card.

I've never created an AO3 collection before, so if I've goofed in some way or it could be improved, let me know!
