Hi friends! Happy almost end of summer! I'm excited cause i hate being hot....so winter is my kind-of season. And my birthday is in the fall too... XP
Anyway, I just wanted to announce any exciting things we admins have coming for this month and into September! ~^-^~
Some changes to how to submit to the featured folder have been made. So like you all know, whenever you attempt to submit to the featured folder, one of us admins will ask you a question about why your story deserves to be in this folder. It's just a way to keep the folder "special" without making it a dumping place for people who are too lazy to search for a specific fandom folder. Plus, you all deserve to have a special story in there that represents the best of the best! Since none of us have time to go through every story in this group to judge if it's worthy for the featured folder or not, answering our simple question just helps show that you really want it to be in the folder and you made the effort to prove it!
With all of that being said, some people never respond when asked the question...so the story just sits there in our feed until someone accepts/declines it. Yeah, that's getting on my nerves
SO! I now have an expiration date for when you can respond to our question. You get 5 days from when you submit to answer the question. If you don't respond in time, the story automatically gets deleted and not put into our group. Then it's up to you if you want to resbumit it.
Yes, we will be doing another "Secret Santa"/"MCP" event. I'm thinking Back to School theme since it lets people get super creative with non-slice of life (or school oriented) shows. Plus, i'm a sucker for Hetalia School AUs
Another thing we can do instead of a partner trade, we could do a story challenge. So every week there is a new prompt with a theme and whoever wants to join just has to write a one-shot! Nothing is gained as a gift, but you get an excuse to write and tone your skills for whenever we decide to have a contest...
We will be starting monthly featured journals (or maybe folders...idk yet) next month! Sorry, i was going to do it this month, but i was too busy watching Lupin
So let me know in the comments if you would like to sign up to have a monthly journal! You can also tell me if there is a certain month you prefer or whatever. Just note that October is off limits since that's my birth month and i want to use it for something else
More news to come, but i must skedaddle to bed for i am sleepy~
