[sticky entry] Sticky: Questions.

If you have got any questions about the challenge, the community, or other various related things, this is where you will ask them!

I will answer a few common ones right here:

How long do I have to post my fic?: You have until the deadline for that month's theme, which will always be 11:59 PM Central Standard Time (9:59 PM Pacific Standard Time, 10:59 PM Mountain Standard Time, 12:59 AM Eastern Standard Time, 5:59 AM Greenwich Mean Time...any other time zones I need to note?) on the last day of the month. That means you can work on it all month if you like, so long as it's posted before the deadline.
Can I write something with mature/spoiler-tastic content?: Yes, you can! All I ask of you is that you tag it appropriately. Mature content should be tagged in the comment subject line with [MA] and spoilers with [S]. This makes it easier to see at a glance if something is porny or might ruin the fandom for someone else!
How long does something have to have been out to no longer need the spoiler tag?: I have discussed this with many people, and have decided on eight months, to strike a happy medium between the many opinions I've received.
Can I write more than one fic for a theme?: Absolutely! Write as many as you like. As long as you get it in before the deadline, you are free to let your imagination and creativity bottle spill all over!
Is there a wordcount limit?: It is likely best to write at least 100 words - that is, a drabble - but you can write as much or as little as you prefer. I won't yell at you for it; $deity knows how hard it can be to get words out sometimes.
Do I have to write something fandom-specific?: Nope! Feel free to write an original idea - in fact, one of our themed months deals with nothing but original fiction.
[New] If I write for one challenge, am I then locked into writing for all of them?: Nope! You can write as strikes your fancy. If you only want to write for one challenge, that's fine. If you want to write for all of them, also fine. Half of them - a third - a fourth - that's also fine. There's no commitment!
How do I describe my fic when I'm posting it?: Please describe it with the fandom (if applicable - if it's original fiction, then just say "original"), pairing (if applicable), and a short summary or prompt if you feel so inclined. Example, pulling a random game from my shelf: Star Ocean: Till the End of Time - Fayt/Maria - a day out for lunch.
Can I tell other people about this challenge?: Of course you can! Spread the word as far and wide as you feel the need. The more, the merrier!

Feel free to ask about anything else!
