Hey everyone, Eilia and I were talking, and we were thinking it might be better if the two of us switch to being non-neutral mods i.e. I'd earn points for the Black Mages and Eilia would earn points for whatever her new team is. Or if that's not seen as fair, maybe we could have our points donated to the team in fourth place at the time. I'm planning on posting some fanworks soon, so let me know if you have opinions either way so that I know how to handle points for those.

Also, I forget who it was who volunteered to post reminders, but whoever it was, I'm thinking I'll just give you posting access to this comm ([community profile] finalfantasyland) and you can post a reminder about once a week, timed to be a day or two before an activity that might be closing.

Aaaaaaand now, stamping question changes. Most of them, we can't really change because there are still a lot of people that think they're helpful, and the mods have discussed problems with a few questions some people proposed to add, so we just have a few small changes this time.

Proposed changes and poll )

As for other rule changes, we'll propose them at a later time (but soon)!

So far, the current things on the table are:
1. Fanworks Bazaar - [ profile] sunflower_mynah is on a lot of things for it! Including the proposed new layout, which you can check here if you haven't already.
2. Low-Entry Contests - [ profile] chacusha is making a few options for low-entry contests that will be up for voting sometime.
3. Stamping Difficulties - We know a lot of people are a bit frustrated with stamping, because people seem to connect keywords to certain classes and just jump on them. We'll have an activity soon to help rectify this problem a little bit? Maybe? And hopefully make voting easier.

Sorry for the delay! Here's what we've decided on for Game 3:

Important Rule Changes for Game 3

FF Land-wide changes )
Sorting changes )
Contest changes )
Fanworks changes )
Social changes )

I hope all that makes sense. This is most likely going to be the last "official business" post you'll be seeing from me for a very long time, so... peace out. :)

P. S. be sure to check that your name is not on this members cut list (...unless you want it to be there D':)

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 everyone for voting in the polls. I know the proposal about fic contests with game restrictions got heated but I'm glad it at least got debated in the open and people were able to arrive at a compromise that worked for most people. Anyway, on to important changes for Game 2.

Important Rule Changes for Game 2

FF Land-wide changes )
Sorting changes )
Contest changes )
Fanworks changes )

*whew* I think that's it. Game 2 begins June 1st and ends August 31st. :)
