The EXTREMELY belated reveals for Round 17: Author's Choice are finally here! We are terribly sorry about this, everyone. Your mods suck, what else can we say? (And also Ver has had a lot of shit going down IRL since the beginning of May and also has no regular internet, so she couldn't poke at Aki to post as frequently as she normally would have, and she has decided to finally just do it herself. Not that that's an excuse, but you know. XD) Anyway. We had 6 submissions by 6 authors.

Step By Step

Best Guesser
Congratulations to [personal profile] tuulentupa! With 3 correct out of a possible 5 (60%)! (Since she was the 6th contributor) Honorable mention goes to [personal profile] stalkerbunny with a still admirable 1 correct out of a possible 5 guesses (20%).

ID Challenge
Three people guessed the ID's and all three got them correct- they were the word "five" in different languages. Congratulations to [personal profile] qem_chibati who got it first, and also [personal profile] tuulentupa and [personal profile] phnx who got it correct after that! Good job, guys!

Theme Challenge
There was no theme this round.

For this round, there will be some kind of graphic prize that Ver will figure out later, but probably a small banner. Winners should contact Ver through PM or email with the picture they would like used for their banner(s) attached (or at least an idea of which character is their favorite or something like that). Ver will get those out as soon as she can- luckily, she doesn't need internet to use photoshop. Congrats!

Once again a huge thank you to everyone for participating. We hope you all had fun. We again apologize for the bad job we've been doing the last few rounds. We're very sorry that we suck epically. That being said, we are about due for another round, but Ver is thinking it'll be a less formal one. So keep an eye out for that soon!

As a random aside, Ver would also like to know what everyone thinks about setting up BG partially in AO3- with everything still posted here, but also set up in AO3. Which would mean that things like reveals taking two months wouldn't happen, at least there. I'm told it's a lot easier to do those sorts of things. This is an informal poll- nothing has been decided AT ALL (or... ahem... really discussed...), it's just a thought that's been rattling around in Ver's head. Let us know your thoughts about it!

I like having it on Ao3 because it gives me more control over the work and I don't feel like I'm bugging you guys if there's a small edit I want to make.

I do think that having it on Ao3 would reduce the amount of moderator work required for you guys.

Since when you go into the collection preferences you get a bunch of ticky boxes:

This collection is moderated ?
This collection is closed ?
This collection is unrevealed
This collection is anonymous

So moderated means that anyone can submit and don't need to sign up beforehand (you can kick out fics if inappropriate at a later point), closed means that no one can submit any more works; unrevealed is what you have ticked until you want people to read the works; and anon is what you have ticked until you want to attach the usernames to the fic.

This means you wouldn't be incharge of formatting and you would have much less editing work to update all of the fics.

No worries!

I like the idea of doing it on A03 if it's less work for you guys!

There's a learning curve to running a challenge on AO3, but it's still so much easier on the mod end of things to do it that way. I'd actually kind of love if we posted the fics that way and then the parts left on DW were "here are the people participating and their accounts" and "submit guesses here" and all of that.

I'm fine with AO3! Sounds pretty good actually!
And thanks for running this thing despite RL which surely can be a bitch, I know that.

I've done a couple of challenges on AO3 now, and it's a pretty good system, if you guys want to move to that. ^^

I really like posting on AO3 for challenges and things like that. The format is really streamlined, too.
