Anyone age 18 or over who is a member of the Springkink community.How does it work?
When claiming opens, simply comment with the claims you'd like to make on the appropriate post - e.g. if there is a prompt you'd like to claim due November 23rd, comment on the post November 21st to November 25th.When can I claim a prompt?
From the opening of the prompt lists for claiming to the end of the day the prompt is due.What are the rules for making a claim?
Simply copy and paste the prompt you'd like to claim into a comment as explained above, and note if you would like to be making a fic claim, an art claim, and if you're collaborating with someone else, the username of your collaborator.How many times can a prompt be claimed?
A prompt may be claimed up to six times in total - three fics, three art. No more than three claims of either type can be made and I will comment to let you know if your claim has been rejected. First come, first served, and edited comments do not get first come first served for additional claims - if you make one set of claims and would like to claim more, comment again separately. It's only fair that those with non-paid accounts shouldn't be disadvantaged by the queueing system.How many words am I expected to write for a fic claim?
The minimum is 100 and there is no max.When can I start writing/drawing?
As soon as you've received a comment from me telling you if your claim has been noted. Again - if it has been rejected, I will tell you immediately. There may be some delay between your posting a claim and my noting it due to my work hours, but I will attempt to respond to any claim within three days.What happens if I default or am early/late posting?
was originally set up as a low stress break from yaoi_challenge
and the central concepts have stayed steady; the main idea is to have fun, enjoy prompting whether you're a writer or not, enjoy fulfilling prompts whether you're an epic-writer or short-story-writer or an artist, and to basically just relax. However, if you are early or late with a prompt, you may want to include a little apology in the author/artist's notes for your prompter.One of my prompts is duplicated/missing/needs altering/I want to withdraw, what do I do?Simply send me a private message over Livejournal
with details of the comment and what you wish to have done to it, and I'll make the adjustment for you.
Again, if you have any questions or comments about the claiming process, please comment here and I'll attempt to answer asap.
