I've been working on setting up the revamped and re-organised Fanworks Bazaar, since lots of people seemed to like the idea in the community evaluation polls.

The post on it is here; there's a link to the sample bazaar page in that post. Let me know your thoughts and opinions on it, please?

THE END! This song just came on. Seems oddly appropriate.

This one is about [ profile] moogle_workshop, which is run by a magical moogle.

There are NO SCALES in this one!

Mysti would like me to add that if anyone has comments about Moogle Workshop, they can direct those to her personally. As stated, I'll have the mod contact list up soon, but for now, you can IM her on AIM at snarkycleric, or PM her ([ profile] sunflower_mynah).

For reference, fanworks points are found here for general things and here for art.

All right, so as I mentioned before going on vacation, the more I thought about the de-anon bonuses and how to handle them, the more thorns I ran into. I'm actually putting in my notes to propose we do away with them between Games 2 and 3 BUT, because changing the rules now would be really disruptive, here is my proposal for de-anon bonuses for the time being (posting to FF Land Main this time because these clarifications involve [ profile] moogle_workshop and [ profile] airship_lounge as well):

I. Fan essays are allowed to be posted in [ profile] moogle_workshop at any time and will be given points using the fanfiction scale. However, to count as an essay they must have a minimum word count of 250 words and have some central "point" or theme to them.

Rationale )

II. To get a de-anon bonus for an entry, you must crosspost it to [ profile] moogle_workshop. This is just to make it easier on the mods and give us one simple way of tallying de-anon points.

III. The de-anon bonus applies to all contests except shorter blurb-type contests. So as a corollary, all contest entries that are able to get de-anon bonuses can be crossposted to MWS. The team slogans challenge, for example, would not be given de-anon points and those should not be posted to [ profile] moogle_workshop. Everything else, if you wish to de-anon, go ahead and post it to MWS.

In more detail )

IV. This system will be evaluated at the end of Game 2 for sure. If you have any questions or feedback, feel free to leave them on this post, or over at the Suggestions Post. And if what I've written here is horribly confusing, I'll be glad to answer any questions you have. :)

Finally, unrelated to this de-anon thing, I'm doing a member's cut soon, for real. LAST CHANCE: If your name is listed here you have 24 hours to tell me you want to stay or I'll be booting you from the comms!

Thank you to those who voted on the poll. Two announcements:

1. Fanfiction featuring original characters set in the worlds of FFXI or FFXIV will be given points.

2. We will be having a Random Encounters activity in [ profile] ff_minigames, run by [ profile] lightofeilia. For those worried about the activity being distracting, [ profile] lightofeilia is planning on reducing the scope of the activity. She'll be posting an info post shortly so refer to that for more info.

Hey everyone, two more things we'd like community input on:

1) [ profile] moogle_workshop has a rule that fic featuring original characters will not be given points. But the Final Fantasy MMOs, FFXI and FFXIV, were brought up, and we weren't sure if fic set in the world of those games but featuring player characters rather than the canon NPCs would fall under the original character rule or no. So basically, should FFXI/FFXIV fic set in the game worlds but only featuring original characters be given points? (Note: in either case, fic of that type can definitely be posted, but we're just trying to figure out if they'll be awarded points like other fanfic would be given.)

2) [ profile] lightofeilia had an idea for [ profile] ff_minigames based on Munchkin that would actually be, well, more of a community-wide mega-game that would involve fighting monsters and leveling up! We want to know if people would be interested.

Longer explanation )

Here's the poll:

If you have any questions / concerns, let us know in the comments, and we'll answer/address them ASAP. :)

Thank you to everyone who voted on the flurry of applications! I was blown away by the amazing job people did with the sorting this past week!

Here are some announcements:

1: Point updates will be posted here every two weeks on Sunday. The first point update will be next week, February 6th.

2: I've made a Google calendar containing all FF Land deadlines, which can be found here. It is linked in the sidebars as well.

3: I've made a (members-locked) members list, showing contact information and classes for people who have been sorted at [ profile] ff_classchange.

4: The point system at [ profile] moogle_workshop has been tweaked a bit. The community is open for posting.

Thanks for your time, and I hope you're all having fun. :)


Final Fantasy Land is a Final Fantasy-themed team challenge community, where you are first sorted into one of four FF classes and then compete with your team to win the most points by the end of the game. For more information, see our FAQ.

Cycle 7 start: May 1, 2014
Next point update: July 17
