Thank you, everyone for making this fest a smashing success! We'd like to see how it went for you, to see if we need to make tweaks to the timing or format (or anything else) for next time. The poll is anonymous - no one (not even the mods) can see who ticked (or typed) what, so please give us your honest opinion. Comments are open and anon commenting on, so feel free to expand on your answers, or give us feedback that way. If you want to do it privately, you can email or PM the mods ([personal profile] kate, [profile] lady_krysis, and [personal profile] healingmirth). We'd love to hear from you.

Let's talk timing. The fest was 10/21 - 2/7. Stories went live end of January. How do you feel about that? (More specific questions about each section to follow.)

The two weeks from 1/15 - 2/29 were to make sure we could secure pinch hits and give them time to post. Pinch hitters and possible pinch hitters, how do you feel about having 2 weeks to write your pinch hit?

We were just doing some testing on AO3, and got a bit confused - it looks like the challenge is still open for signups, even though it's over. Was that intentional, or an oversight, or is there a bug we need to look into?

Ah, that makes sense - it looks like the list of open challenges got confused between the main collection and the scramble sub-collection. We'll make sure the new version of the code makes that clear - thank you for clarifying.
