Hi all! *waves* I just wanted to let you know that we are indeed going to have another round of the triatha_ron in 2008! As some of you may know, mad_maudlin is currently overseas, so tarie and I will be mostly running this round. There are going to be a few changes both for variety and for keeping the comm going under LJ's new rules. I'm not quite ready to roll all that out yet, but I wanted to let you know that something's on the radar so you can get your Ron engines pumping. But I think our basic schedule is going to look something like this (not set in stone!):

March 1: sign-ups begin
March 8: sign-ups end
March 9: teams listed and assignments go out via email
April 13: posting begins

I think we're going to maintain the Het, Slash, and Gen team structure. More details to follow, honest. :D If you have suggestions for prompts you'd like to see or any changes you'd like made, please comment here. I'm especially interested in incorporating art for this round in addition to fic, so if you are an artist who would consider participating, would you please just drop a comment and say "ooooh, me!" so I can see if we have enough interest? Thanks!

And many thanks to shocolate for poking me about the fest!

I'd love to draw for this. Here is a link, if you'd like to check out my stuff

All my art is tagged at the left.

YAY! Oooh, is it possible to give us 6 weeks to write/beta? Four weeks is awfully fast if you have a busy life.

FYI I just posted the FAQ for 2008 and we have extended the writing time. Seems like a lot of people wanted that! :D

Fabulous. I think people want to do a good job, so (at least the way I operate) I need a good length of time to think about how sexy I want Ron to be. :D

This is exciting! I'm happy to help if you need anything. :)

Oooh, I'm excited. Can't wait really.

Like abigail89, I'd love to see the posting date pushed back a little bit.

Yay! I LOVE the triatha_ron!

It doesn't have to be answered now, but I'm curious if pinch-hitters from last year get dibs or if it's going to be a random draw again (either is fine by me, I'm mostly just curious! :D).

I'm also with abigail89 and hildigunner on requesting a later due/posting date.

Yay!

Very cool! I will cross my fingers that I'll be able to snag one of the random draw slots for a team place.

Great stuff, I can't wait! :D
