verloren1983: (*facepalm*)
[personal profile] verloren1983
A few things on the agenda today: First, we wanted to remind everyone that fics are due at 11:59pm EST on September 19th. That means in less than a week! The minimum word count is only 500, though, so it's probably not time to panic. Yet.

Second, ID's have (finally, we know) gone out. If you didn't get an ID, let us know and we'll send it again.

Finally, we wanted to take this opportunity to apologize profusely for our tremendous fail so far this round. We didn't forget about you guys or BG, we promise! Aki has been ill (but is getting better, not to worry!), and Ver completely underestimated how much all the IRL changes happening to her would fuck with her ability to think/post stuff. So themes never went up, and the support post never went up, and ID's took absolutely forever... ungh. We are terribly sorry. We suck. Floggings will be allowed only if forgiveness follows. ^_~ Seriously, though, this was not intentional and the only thing we can say is that we'll try to not let it happen again. *bows* Please forgive us!

(On that note, being that the word count is so short, would anyone like themes still? We can put some up if people would still like them.)

Alright, that takes care of all the items on our list. Get writing! :P

Welcome to the reveal of Round 015: Foreign Players! Thanks to everyone for who submitted and signed up for a wonderful longfic round. We had 8 authors, 8 stories for a total of 72,000 words! Alright here we go: Our Authors!


Best Guesser
Congratulations to Ontogenesis! With 4 correct out of a possible 8 (50%)! Honorable mention goes to [personal profile] qem_chibati with a still admirable 2 correct out of a possible 7 guesses (29%).

ID Challenge
No one submitted any guesses this round. The theme was defunct Go Tournaments around the world. :D

Feedback Challenge
Congratulations to [personal profile] qem_chibati who commented to every single one of our fics! Honorable mention to [personal profile] phnx, who commented to 2 fics!

Theme Challenge
Congratulations to [ profile] aiwritingfic for winning the Theme Challenge! Unfortunately no honourable mentions this round - Ai was our only entry.

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. Congrats!

Once again a huge thank you to everyone for participating. We hope you all had fun. We can let you know there will be another mini round before September, so stay tuned to Blind Go for all your fun challenge needs! Everyone take a deep breath, sit back and read more Hikago fic, there is a huge archive here and we'll see you all again next round. Next big round will be September.

(To begin with, I apologize in advance if there are any typos or autocorrect-isms in this post. Ver is on her phone and also has a migraine, so. It's just something that might happen. Ver will fix any errors tomorrow when she has internet. Thanks for understanding!)

It has come to our attention that neither of the mods will be able to post reveals for this round at the time planned. We're terribly sorry about the short notice, but on the upside, it gives you guys another TWELVE HOURS to submit your guesses! Yes, that means the new deadline will be tomorrow at 11:59am EST. Reveals will be up as soon as possible after that time- over hell or high water. Make sure you take advantage of the extra time and guess/comment if you haven't already!

 I would like to being by thanking the twenty-two authors who signed up for this round.

Best of luck to you all and we look forward to the fanfic. 

The Author IDs are now live, all IDs have been sent out.

If you did not get an ID, please contact me [personal profile] akichan either at my email address OR the usual 

Please note though that the latter email gets checked less frequently, so if you need something quicker, my personal address is the way to go. 

PLEASE NOTE: This round's deadline is a HARD deadline. Due to May 4th being a Sunday and the fic encoder (A.K.A myself) has to get up early the next morning for work, so for this round we are trying a hard deadline.

Alright, ready?

Get writing!

 Don't worry if you don't have your ID yet, you aren't alone. The IDs will all be out by this weekend, by March 16th.

I apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience on the matter.

But don't let me hold you up, get writing and best of luck to all the participants!

EDIT: Unfortunately due to an unexpected delay on my end ([personal profile] akichan), it turned into March 23rd. I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience. Please rake me over the coals accordingly. XD

Hiya, Hikago fandom! It's your new mods, Ver and Aki here. You're probably surprised to see us so soon after the last round, but in honor of Touya Akira's birthday which mostly gets ignored, we have a surprise for you~ a mini-round! :D

Also, since this is our first time in our shiny new mod chairs, we'd like to say that we are incredibly honored and excited to be in this position. Please take care of us! *bows* Even though it's scary having to deal with new mods in a community, never fear- we don't plan on making a whole bunch of changes on you guys. We've both been around a long time and we love [community profile] blind_go the way that it is. We intend to keep things more or less the same, mostly just with more mini-rounds and stuff. We have IDEAS. So look forward to that. :P

That being said... Trixie and Pye, before they left, set up the beginnings of a move to DW, lovely people that they are. The one "change" that we are implementing is that we're finishing this process- [community profile] blind_go will now be primarily on DW, with posts showing up on LJ with links to the DW comm. Along that same vein, the support comm [community profile] kifu_archive has been copied to DW and all of the activities for that community will be completely on DW from here on out.

Anyway! Onto business!

Read more... )

Questions? Post them here, send a PM (Ver or Akichan), or email (Ver or Akichan)! Don't forget that [community profile] kifu_archive is around for flailing and support, and the support thread is already up, because Ver is awesome like that. :D

Thank you!! And happy ficcing!!!

Once again, another admin post...

There's no easy way to say this, but your mods [personal profile] trixie_chick and [personal profile] blue_cage will be stepping down, effective immediately, and passing the baton to the new mods, [personal profile] verloren1983 and [personal profile] akichan. We have every confidence that they will continue the fun and excitement of deadlines and guessing that is blind go.

trixie came on as mod in August of '08, and Pye in February of '11. It's been a tremendous honor and privilege to be caretakers for this great challenge and for this great community. Hikaru no Go is an amazing series, but its fans are every bit as amazing and wonderful. Thank you all for your support and patience over the years, and thank you for continuing to show your love for this series and your enthusiasm for this challenge time and time again!!

We hope that you will be gentle with your new mods, heh, and we know this challenge is going to continue for a long, long time to come. And don't worry, we'll still be around... trixie in particular is looking forward to epically failing at guessing for the first time in a loooong time in the next round!

Good luck and much love to you all, especially [personal profile] verloren1983 and [personal profile] akichan!!!

Hello!! A favor to ask of you... as the last bit of "tidying up" for Round 014, the fics will be labelled as to who wrote 'em, and tags will be added for authors. Generally, the tags have been made using the user ID, that is, an individual's livejournal or dreamwidth username, or whatever username was given at sign ups. Especially now that we are bridging between livejournal and dreamwidth, and because the challenge has been ongoing for so long now, I'd like to ask that people check to be sure that the name their fics are being tagged with is the name they want associated with their fiction. People change usernames over time, and maybe now if someone is more active on dreamwidth or on AO3, they would prefer the name associated with that account to be used for the tags.

So!! Especially if you have changed usernames at any point since first participating in the challenge, please take a look at the tags and be sure that your fics/works are being tagged the way you want them to be. You can find a list of tags here:

On livejournal
On dreamwidth

Though, keep in mind, the dreamwidth tag list links only lead to the list of fics from previous rounds on the dreamwidth account.

IF you would like your tags changed, please comment here to let us know!! Otherwise, when your entry for Round 014 is labelled and tagged, your username given for the round will be used. For simplicity's sake, we'd prefer the tags be as seamless as possible, but it's ultimately your name, so... we wanna get it right!

Thank you!!
