A Ron Ficathon where Everyone's a Winner!
preliminary roster 
17th-Feb-2008 07:11 am
Hi, all. Sign ups for invited participants have now ended, so here's our current team roster. As you can see, we still have plenty of room left, plus we'll be reserving two slots per team for new participants.

Team Gen Team Het Team Slash
thesteppyone attilatehbun mizbean
hildigunnur kennahijja

Teams, you may begin team building! :D Last year some unofficial LJ communities were created for each team, so you can check with the maintainers of those, or you may want to create your own (last year's comms were not created by the mods, so we don't have any control over them). And please comment or drop us an email if I've messed up anything in the table or you can no longer participate, etc.

Open sign ups for the remaining slots will begin on March 1.

Yay Ron!

I think Team Gen is going to have to create their own private comm. (no disrespect to the members, whom I like)

I am really beyond boggled that I'm not good enough to invite back, but you think it's ok to invite the new invitees to use the comm I created for last year's team. 0_o

That's your choice, if you'd prefer that people not use the comm. I'll change the post to reflect that. It wasn't a matter of anyone being "good enough" to invite back, but I'm sorry you feel that way.

I'm afraid I am going to have to drop out.

I'm starting a new job in late March, and simply won't have the time to write for a fest with deadlines.

Thanks for letting us know. Good luck with your new job!

18th-Feb-2008 12:10 am (UTC)
We'll miss you, but good luck on the new job! I'm sure it'll be awesome.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to drop out also. I'm currently involved with several other big projects including the Quidditch Pitch so unfortunately I don't feel confident I could make any deadlines.

Thank you for letting us know.

Good luck with your other projects!

We'll miss you! Thanks for letting us know, though!

how many are people are going to be included after the lottery. There were what about 15 people for each team last year? I am not a writer, but I did enjoy reading the stories last year. But this year having special invites and many wonderful people being excluded seems very elitist. Are there only two lottery spots on the gen team are you going to 15 on each team?
17th-Feb-2008 08:43 pm (UTC)
We did not intend to be elitist in the slightest and we are deeply regretful and apologetic that it appeared that way to some people. Lesson learned and all that.

As for teams, each team will have the same number of people total. At this time, we want to wait to see how the sign-ups go before determining how many total will be on each team. I hope that answers your question!
17th-Feb-2008 11:11 pm (UTC)
well if you don't want to be elitist, and don't have a number in mind for how many will be on each team, why don't you invite everyone who participated last year.
17th-Feb-2008 11:15 pm (UTC)
We already explained how and why we did the inviting this year. We will remedy this for next year, lesson learned. It would not be appropriate to do so for the current fest (as it will undoubtedly open up yet another bag of worms despite good intentions), though everyone is of course welcome to their own opinions. Thank you for your suggestion, however.

Hi! Sorry, not a big deal but I'm aTTiLatehbun, not aTiLLatehbun. Common typo. Thanks! XD

Whoops, fixed! Thanks for catching it! :D

Sorry...been absent for a while getting another fest fic done..

Now that is done and if anyone in/at Team Slash wants to get hold of me I am Bigbookwrm1 at both Yahoo e-mail and YIM.

While not foolproof, a 100% lottery is most likely a better alternative for populating a ficfest than selective invites. If the point is to foster the creation of Ron-fic, then fling the gates wide. Good wishes to you all and your fest, but I just don't care to hope to be 'lucky' again this year.

Fair enough. We did invites last year and there were no complaints, so I hope you can see why we were a little surprised to have people upset about them this year. But obviously we will take all the feedback into account for future fests and we won't be doing invites again. Thanks for your thoughts.

I was very excited to be doing this, but unfortunately RL is overwhelming me so I am afraid that I am going to have to step back from participating this year. It's a real shame, too, because the triatha_ron ended up prompting me to write my favourite story from last year.

Good luck to all the teams (with an especially loud cheer for team het!).

Thanks for letting us know and good luck with your RL! We'll miss you!
