Oh yeah, we're back - monaboyd_month
For those of you who may be new or just want a reminder, here's what's going on:
During the month of JUNE
this community will turn into a veritable monaboyd fest. You leave a comment to sign up; we assign you a particular date. This date is your date. On this date you post your contribution to the fest- fic, fanart, picspam, whatever you like. You can post as many times or as many things as you want on your date. On other dates the monaboydian offerings of others appear on your friendslist for you to enjoy!
Just a couple of changes for this year: if we can't get enough sign-ups to fill the entire month, we'll just be assigning Monday-Friday dates. If you want to post on a weekend (or even just want to see a full month of monaboyd), it's in your best interest to encourage more sign-ups and spread the word! 1. How do I sign up?
Just leave a comment on this post with the following information:Name:
Journal you will be using to post (if different):
Preferred week of June, if you have one:
What sort of thing you'll be posting (fic, art, etc):
Once you've signed up please friend the community so you can see any reminders or updates. We promise not to spam you and you're welcome to defriend the community once the major posting begins if for some reason you don't want monaboyd love all over your flist.2. When do sign ups end?
You have until April 15th to sign up for your preferred date. You may continue to sign up after the 15th, but at that point we will begin making the schedule and your preferred date/week might not be available.3. When will assignment dates be sent out?
No later than April 22.3. Am I guaranteed to get the week I want?
Well, not exactly. If everyone wants to be in the last week we're going to have to disappoint someone. Popular weeks will be assigned on a first-comment-first-serve basis. We are, however, very nice people. If you have a real problem with the date you're assigned just drop us a comment or email and we'll see what we can do.1. How do I post?
First, join the community, to gain posting access. Then, simply post your offering to the community on the date assigned to you!2. What kinds of things are appropriate?
Anything that shows your love of monaboyd. Some ideas are: fic, picspam, fanart, other art post (icons, wallpapers, headers, etc), gifs, fanvids, fanmixes, etc. If you have an idea that you're unsure about, feel free to contact us!3. Do I have to do something new?
Well, yes. The idea is really to get some new monaboyd love out there. However, posting a chapter of an ongoing work or finishing something that you've previously posted as a WIP (as long as some significant progress has been made) is just fine! Link us to previous parts, we'll have more to enjoy!4. Can I post my offerings in my personal journal/in other communities?
Absolutely, just wait until the day after they've gone up in monaboyd_month
, please. We are also allowing link-only posts if your fic is hosted on Archive of Our Own, but we still ask that you please wait until your day to upload the fic.5. What happens if my post is late?
If you know your post is going to be late, PLEASE try to notify us as soon as possible. We'll try to switch around some dates or see if we can find somebody to pinch-hit. Really, though, please try to post on your date.
Note: Though we would like to know what you are posting so that we can arrange them in the best way possible, you are not limited to posting just one thing! Your day is your day and you are free to make as many posts as you want on that day. :)
And lastly, we'll be doing something a little bit different this year: a prompt post! More information about that will follow.
Remember sign-ups close on April 15th. So sign up now!
If you have any other questions, feel free to email the us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment here.
