A Ron Ficathon where Everyone's a Winner!
A Quick 'n' dirty Guide to Voting 
28th-Feb-2007 11:37 am
Hey writers! It's almost time for the TriathaRon posting to begin, and I just wanted to give a few pre-emptive kudos. Mad wacky props to co-mod marginaliana for running a wonderful Drabble-a-Thon, and to all our writers whose hard work will shortly be going on display!

Before we begin, I want to give everying a crash course in how to vote for stories. Every fic will, at the bottom, include a poll with three questions, each good for 1-10 points:

How well was Ron portrayed in this fic? Not necessarily "Is Ron a good guy?" or even "Is Ron shown in a positive light?" but how skillfully the author evoked the character we all know and love (warts, freckles and all).

How well did the author use the prompt? The prompts were very general, and authors had free reign to come up with creative interpretations. The fic might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "fire" or "summer" or "loss," but it might just evoke that word in a way you didn't expect.

Overall, how much did you like this fic? This one, at least, is obvious. :-)

Votes will be collected for four days, give or take a few hours, after a fic is posted. After that, the score will be entered into the Modly Scorebook, and the poll will be deleted. So writers, pimp your teammates' fics! The more votes you get, the merrier!

The average score for each of these questions will be summed, so in the end, each fic will have a total score out of thirty. Each team will have a score out of 450 (30 x 15--see, I can do maths!). The highest-scoring team will, in the end, win the TriathaRon!

If you have any questions or concerns about the voting process, please comment here or email us at triatharon.mod@gmail.com.

Not a question about voting, just a fic-posting-curiosity question: are you posting the fics in any particular order? The order on the prompt table? Random order? Whichever prompts have all three entries in already? ;)

Thank you mods, for all the hard work!

The answer would be a little of B and C--I'm going to start with those prompts for which I've already got all three fics, since they're already coded and all. But for the most part, the order will be somewhat random. There are a few people with rather long extensions due to RL issues or pinch-hitting situations, so their prompts will necessarily come up later in the month, but I'm expecting to have almost all the fics in this weekend.
