This is the official sign-up post. Sign-ups will run until July 29, 2011 at midnight EST (so ending Sunday night). Proxy sign-ups ARE allowed if you can't make that window, but as sign-ups are NOT first-come first-served, there's less urgency in signing up early. Assignments will be sent out by August 11th.
( THE RULES...Collapse )
Please think very carefully before you sign up, and please only do so if you can make the commitment. This is the final year, and we've maxed out the participant cap in order to let in as many people as possible without overloading the mods. While we are here to have fun and spread joy, it is not a throwaway responsibility, either. The mods count on you as a participant to fulfill an obligation, and if you drop out, it does not only affect you and the person you were writing/drawing for. Remember, someone was writing/drawing for you, too.
Read the guide to being a good fest participant for starters. Especially you first timers! Think about your own writing abilities, how fast/slow you write and how good you are at meeting deadlines, because there is nothing more frustrating to a mod than the flaky and inconsistent. We do our best to cultivate a reputation for excellence, and count on all involved to make the fest as good as it can be.

That's all, folks! Again, please email us at hdhols-at-gmail-dot-com if you have any questions about the rules, eligibility, etc. Let's make this final year full of wonderfulness and rainbows and smoking hot gay lovin.
