Admin Post

Hey, everyone! I haven't been very good at checking in and I apologize. How are things going? It's been a couple of years so I thought now would be a good time to do some de-cluttering.

How many of you have completely abandoned your claims? Just leave your username and claim in the comments. If you're still trucking along on your claim, then keep doing what you're doing.:)

Admin Notes

Yikes! I received a message that we were visited by a porn bot. I'm sorry that happened, guys. So to take precautions, I'm going to put this comm on moderated posting. Thank you for bringing the bot to my attention.

In happier news, rules and dates have been posted to oc_bigbang. Writer sign ups will start on June 1. And, yes, you can use a big bang story for one prompt or several prompts.:)

2010 Check-In

Hello, everyone! Welcome, new members! How is the writing going?

I just wanted to address a couple of things, and then I'll let you get back to the fic.

1) If you've decided not to complete your table, please let me know. You can leave a comment here or on the "admin: dropping a claim" thread.

2) If you need a tag for your fandom, please let me know here so I can make it.

3) Please take a moment to read and give feedback to your fellow writers. It's tough out there for an OC writer. We are not the favorites of fandom and are often reviled and lumped with Mary Sue writers. So please give support to each other. Support is so important when you're trying to do something different.

With those out of the way, I'd like to announce a new big bang coming this fall. It'll be one devoted to OCs in fandom and it will give you a chance to have art to go along with your story. I'll keep you up to date as the details develop.

In the meantime, keep writing and sharing!

Housekeeping...

Good morning, everyone!

I've just been going through The Claims and am trying to keep them up to date. It's been a little more than a year now so it's probably time for some housekeeping.

If you plan to continue your table, then you don't have to do anything. We're good. Carry on with the writing.

If you don't plan to continue your table, please reply to this post.

I also have a few on the list who have not provided me with a link to their table yet, if you could please reply here with the link, that would be helpful.

I think that's all I have for right now. Thank you for making this comm such a success and continue to write those awesome original characters. Also, if you feel like, please pimp us out. My goal is to create a refuge for those who like to write original characters in fic, and I'd love to get the word out even further.

Oh, and if you get the chance, please read and give feedback to those who have posted stories. It's hard enough getting feedback on an original character from a regular fic comm so let's encourage each other here.:)

I'll now return you to your regularly scheduled fic.
