update on schedule, nominations, BRAINSTORMING POST

0. (because trawling through a comm looking for a link is annoying), instructions on how to nominate - please read them! - are here; nominations are here.

1. For anyone who might have been looking at the schedule, you might have seen it was changed; I forgot to include a few vital dates (such as, er, signups) and so I've amended it. The time for writing and such are unchanged, you still have the same amount of time, but if you know that you will be really busy around June and July you may want to look at the revised schedule. The schedule shouldn't have to be changed after this.

Nominations: Sunday May 24 - Sunday May 31st, 11:59 PM EDT
Nomination review: Monday June 1st - Thursday June 4th
Signups: Thursday June 4st - Sunday June 14th, 11:59 PM EDT
Assignments are out: Thursday June 18th, approximately (earlier if possible!)
Default deadline: Sunday July 5th, 11:59 PM EDT
Stories are due: Sunday July 12th, 11:59 PM EDT
Stories revealed: Saturday July 18th, 11:59 PM EDT
Authors revealed: Saturday July 25th

2. It's really exciting to see so many nominations! If there are any problems, feel free to comment on a post or again email me, I'll do my best to reply promptly.

3. Feel free to use this post to talk about what you're nominating, to drum up excitement for your lost fic ideas, or to swap/coordinate nominations.

Are the times listed in the schedule AM or PM?

Hi! Just so you know, June 1st is a Monday and June 4th is a Thursday (you have them listed as a Friday for Jun 1 and a Monday for Jun 4)

:) I'm so excited about this! Hopefully I'll figure out a way to participate since I'll be travelling during it.

Is anyone nomming Preston of the Spaceways or the Havenite 'Faxes Colloquially Known as Smutsies or any of Emily's work?

I wasn't sure what to call Anne Shirley's short story published in Youth's Friend, the one written at the Cobb place, so I went with the description generally provided. Hope that works.

[dialogue between the flowers and guardian spirit of the garden] (short story)

Also nommed Averil's Atonement as a short story (as that was its length in the book - pamphlet).

Makes sense.

I'm curious, what's the maximum number of 'characters' we can request and offer?

"A Perfect Vacuum - Stanislaw Lem (1)," which is currently listed as "Uncategorized Fandoms" is the same as "A Perfect Vacuum - Stanisław Lem" which is currently listed under "Books & Literature." If you can't spot the difference, the latter uses the "L with stroke" character, while the former simply uses an L.

Thank you. But it now looks like Gigamesh has been left in Uncategorized Fandoms. It should be restored to A Perfect Vacuum.
