OFBB2013 is a go!





As of this year, we're moving to Dreamwidth entirely this year. LJ's recent track record with site viability isn't exactly encouraging, and we'd like to keep everything in one location, so we will not be crossposting to the LJ community anymore. The posts in the LJ community will stay as an archive.

You can still sign up and join the community using openID (here's how!), or you can get a Dreamwidth account (here's a guide for LJ users switching to DW).

The biggest change we're introducing is breaking up the main wave of the big bang into two smaller waves. Over the last three years, we've had approximately 6-7 months from start to finish, with a month and a half for making art. This has led to enthusiasm petering out partway through, and a number of participants dropping out before finishing their stories. We'll be adopting a two-wave system, based on the wordcount of the stories. The shorter stories (minimum 5K) will come first, and then the longer ones (minimum 10K).

Right now, the sign-ups for the reversebang round are open - artists and authors.

The regular big bang sign-ups will be opening in a couple of weeks, so keep an eye on [community profile] originalbigbang, [tumblr.com profile] originalbigbang, or [twitter.com profile] originalbigbang for an update on those dates. For more information, check out our 2013 info post, the FAQ, and come join us!

reminder: please check in!

Hey everyone! There are still some of you who have not checked in over at the last, MANDATORY check-in post. We'd like to be able to get our records up to date as soon as possible, so if you haven't yet, please fill out the poll. The check-in post is also the drop-out post, if you feel you won't be able to finish.

e-mail address wrangling

In our attempts to make sure we have all the relevant contact info for everyone, we've discovered we've got some e-mail address problems. Could the following writers please leave us a comment (all comments to this entry are screened) with their current addresses:

[personal profile] cridecoeur
turnerwolf

writers check-in #5 is now live

Please head over to the Dreamwidth comm entry and fill out the poll. This is also your official drop-out post, should you need one.
It's not mandatory, but we'd love to see how you're doing. Head on over to the DW check-in post and share your progress!
