- On Saturday, August 4th at 12pm EST (9am PST/5pm GMT) the battle entry will go up.



Vidder Rules

- To start your comment thread, reply to the battle entry with your username in the subject line of the comment and your completed sign up form in the body. This way anyone prompting you will know your preferences and it will be easier for you to respond to your prompts.

- Track your comment thread! You do that by first posting your comment to the battle entry and then clicking "Track This" below your comment. You might need to check your notification settings on your LJ account page to make sure you get emails every time you get a new reply to your comment thread. If you don't want to get emails, make sure you check back often for new prompts!

- You may only fill prompts left for you in your comment thread and you must fill prompts in the order you receive them.

- VID AWAY! Every fill must be at least one minute long (supercuts may be as little as 30 seconds) to count toward your total number of fills. You may go over, but try to keep it pretty close for your own competitive advantage ;) Please make an honest effort when editing! We'll forgive the occasional hiccup, but remember that just because we're doing a battle doesn't mean that it should be left by the wayside.

- Just like any other fanwork fest, post every fill in a reply to the comment containing the prompt. Put the username of the prompter and the prompt word or phrase in the subject line of your comment. This will help keep things organized when the mods are tallying results later. In the body of the comment please include the following elements: Title of video, link to/embed of video.

- Do not delete your own comment. To keep fill-counts accurate, only mods may delete a comment. If you've made a comment in error, such as posting a fill to the wrong prompt, edit the comment to so that the subject line reads "Error" and leave it up, then make the same comment in the appropriate thread. You may edit fills only for broken links or to fix metadata. Please do not edit your video once you have posted it.

- If you see any comments that violate the rules (listed under Rules for Prompters), please let one of the mods know asap in case we haven't caught it!

- If you have a question you may reply to the battle entry with the word "Question" in the subject line of your comment.

- You may post fills until Saturday, August 11th at 12pm EST (9am PST/5pm GST). I'm giving about a week to allow for vidders' and prompters' various schedules. Any fill posted after this time will not be counted.

- I will post the results of the battle, with Winner(s) and Survivors on Saturday, August 18th. The vidder who fills the MOST prompts will be named the Winner, and any vidder who fills EVERY prompt they are given will be named a Survivor. Mods have the final say of what counts as a fill in terms of word count and content.




Podficcer Rules

- To start your comment thread, reply to the battle entry with your username in the subject line of the comment and your completed sign up form in the body. This way anyone prompting you will know your preferences and it will be easier for you to respond to your prompts.

- You may only fill prompts left for you in your comment thread and you must fill prompts in the order you receive them.

- Record Record Record! Remember every fill must be AT LEAST 100 words long to count toward your total number of fills. You may go over 100 words, but try to keep it pretty close for your own competitive advantage ;) Please make an honest effort when editing! We'll forgive the occasional (literal or figurative) hiccup, but remember that just because we're doing a battle doesn't mean that it should be left by the wayside.

- Just like any other comment fanwork fest, post every fill in a reply to the comment containing the prompt. Put the username of the prompter and the prompt word or phrase in the subject line of your comment. This will help keep things organized when the mods are tallying results later. In the body of the comment please include the following elements: Title of Podfic, link to written text, writer's username, a download link (a streaming embed or streaming link is optional but encouraged!)

- Do not delete your own comment. To keep fill-counts accurate, only mods may delete a comment. If you've made a comment in error, such as posting a fill to the wrong prompt, edit the comment to so that the subject line reads "Error" and leave it up, then make the same comment in the appropriate thread.

- If you have a question you may reply to the battle entry with the word "Question" in the subject line of your comment.

- You may post fills until Saturday, August 11th at 12pm EST (9am PST/5pm GST). I'm giving about a week to allow for podficcers' and prompters' various schedules. Any fill posted after this time will not be counted.

- I will post the results of the battle, with Winner(s) and Survivors on Saturday, August 18th. The podficcer who fills the MOST prompts will be named the Winner, and any podficcer who fills EVERY prompt they are given will be named a Survivor. Mods have the final say of what counts as a fill in terms of word count and content.




Rules and Guidelines for Prompters

- You may post ONE (1) prompt per vidder or podficcer at a time. Once you have given a vidder or podficcer one prompt, you MUST wait until they post their fill to it before you are allowed to prompt them again. You may prompt as many vidders or podficcers as you like, as long as you give each of them no more than one prompt at a time.

- Pay attention to the vidders' and podficcers' preferences as listed in their comment thread. For example, do not prompt a someone to create something smutty if they have listed their maximum rating as PG-13 or lower.

- Keep prompts broad in their possible interpretations. Do not give prompts that are overly-specific or involved; paragraph-long plot descriptions, "Five Times," etc. We'll be allowing creators a lot of latitude in how they interpret their prompts.

-For podficcers, please remember that they are doubly constrained when filling a prompt, in that they're trying to keep word counts low and that by-and-large, the stories they will be recording will be chosen from pre-existing fanfiction. As such, please prompt only one word, one pairing, one character, or one crossover show.

- No "seconding" or replying to prompts for discussion. You may only reply to fills, not to prompts. We need to keep the comment threads manageable and easy to count for the end of the battle. You are welcome to reply with feedback to any fill by any vidder or podficcer, just like any other comment meme.

- Do not reply to a fill with another prompt. Each prompt and fill should be in their own sub-thread under the vidder's or podficcer's comment thread. Again, this will make it easier for mods to get accurate counts at the end of the battle.

- Do not delete your own comment. To keep fill-counts accurate, only mods may delete a comment. If you've made a comment in error, such as leaving a prompt in reply to a fill instead of in reply to the vidder's or podficcer's main thread, edit the comment to so that the subject line reads "Error" and leave it up, then make the same comment in the appropriate thread. You may edit prompts only for egregious spelling/grammar issues that change the meaning of the prompt (for instance if you prompt the word "bear" when you meant "bare").

- If you violate any of these rules, a mod will warn you once. If you violate any rule after being warned, any and all of your comments/unfilled prompts may be deleted at mods' discretion. If you have a question you may reply to the battle entry with the word "Question" in the subject line of your comment.

- If there is any question of whether a fill is adequate in terms of length or content, please send a private message to a mod. The final fill-count for each vidder or podficcer will be determined by the mods.

- You may post prompts until 12am EST (9pm PST Friday) on Saturday, August 11th. Any prompt left after this time will NOT count against the vidder or podficcer and may be deleted by a mod.

- If you see any comment that violates these rules, let a mod know asap in case we haven't caught it!


Questions and sign-ups go in the comments :D
