It's been a while, mostly because I was waiting for some feedback on a few things, but I reckon all is ready for the next step. Everyone who would like help make this community move forward to new rounds and hopefully better quality in its administration should go check out this community: http://community.livejournal.com/patdolym_mods/
Please think it over and seriously consider signing up, because this isn't going to last another round without a good team.
Thanks in advance.
To all of you who might be interested in participating in later rounds, but who aren't so interested in taking an active part in the administrative parts of running a community, what I can tell you for right now is that I hope to have a team assemblied soon, and an understandable, complete description of the hows and whys and all kinds of different stuff related to this community ASAP. Hopefully no later than the holidays.
If things stay on schedule the sign-ups for the next round should take place in January.

Hello everyone. I know I owe you all a huge apology for not living up to the responsibility I put on myself at all. When I started this, I honestly expected to have a dull autumn with nothing to do at all except work and this, which would've made it easy. Obviously, it didn't quite work out that way, and if anyone wants the full explanation I'll be happy to give it, I'm just not going to post it here because I didn't want to be stuffing your faces full of excuses that won't really mean anything to most of you anyway.

The fact of the matter is that I believe we can all safely say this didn't go quite as planned, nor expected, and since I was originally the main force of this, so to say, that means that a lot of you have probably lost some trust in me, for which I am genuinly sorry. I do, however, hope that there are still some people out there who still believe in this project and would still like to participate. And to those, I hope that I will be able to make up for this mess.

One thing I have sure as hell learnt, and maybe a bit too well, is that this isn't anywhere near a one-person job. And I think that to really provide the stability and responsibility you deserve, we need a team of mods rather than just one to three people who may or may not be available when needed (that last was directed at myself more than anyone else). So before we take even a single other step towards starting another round (provided anyone wants one), I think we need to find that team so that we can all confer and agree on everything and get the responsibilities divided and shared so that nothing ever depends on one single person.

The purpose of this post was to say that I'm still alive and very sorry for the disappointment I, and this challenge, have been to a lot of you, and to let you all know about the next step. In the comments you can feel free to bash me, ask any questions you need to, declare support or opposition, or sign up as part of the team that I hope will greatly improve the community. Please let me hear from you soon.

-Danie

I've tallied up the points for each team and have declared the top three winners. I'm not sure what Dani had planned for a reward, but since she hasn't made an effort to contact me in any way, I went ahead and made the winning teams banners for them to display in their community info, as well as the coding so that each member of the team can have access to the banner, should they want it. Also, please keep in mind that the team points do not include any point accumulated by the feedback, since there was insufficient feedback to tally.

So. Without further ado:

Team Brendon: 381 pointsCollapse )

Team Jon: 342 pointsCollapse )

Team Spencer: 315 pointsCollapse )

Well, that's it. The last of the fics submitted. I am so sorry for the long wait and I know that many, if not all (and myself included) have lost interest in this challenge, due to the length of time that it took for things to get posted. I'll be emailing danimpa and hopefully, some things can be resolved before the next round, should she decide to continue.

Thank you so much for those of you who have stuck with this since the beginning. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing so many of the stories have been and it's been awesome to see how much work people put into this. You all did a great job and I look forward to reading more fic from all of you.
