Kurt Big Bang final check in for authors and artists

kurtbigbang:

Sorry for being so late today! Both of us have been quite busy this weekend, but don’t worry, we didn’t forget.

This will be our final check in. The next you will hear from us will be the posting schedule! Remember that this check in is mandatory and please do not make us chase you. The check in is open until 6pm EST on September 9th.

If authors have not already found a beta, you must do it now. Having your fic beta-ed is required.

Please remember that, unless you have requested and received an extension, your fic and art must be fully finished and fully beta-ed by October 1st. You will be allowed to send us final drafts via email starting on September 17th, but October 1st is the drop dead deadline. Posting info may be viewed here.

Please make sure artists and authors continue to be in contact.

Author Check In

Artist Check In

As always, feel free to send us an ask on tumblr (for asks that we might answer publicly) or email us with any questions (for specific individual questions or long questions). However, if you do email us, you will need to include your user name or else we will not know who you are. 

Hi everyone,
If you have a question or concern that is very specific to you and your fic (especially dropping out or extensions) please email us rather than asking on tumblr or LJ. It’s much easier for us to respond, and it lets us keep a record of what we told you in case we forget.
And please remember to include your user name in the email!

Kurt Big Bang Posting Guidelines

We’re trying to explain this in the least complicated way possible but bear with us. And please do ask us any questions you may have.
How posting works:
  • Authors, with the help of their artists, will be responsible for posting the fic and art in one combined post. You may post on AO3, LJ, or Tumblr. (The fic can be cross-posted anywhere else you like, but at least one of those three must be included and art must be included on all posts on those three sites.)
  • Once the fic has been posted (not before), artists are welcome to make an art post that we will also reblog. This does not have to be the same day.
  • NC-17 art must be behind the cut on tumblr and LJ.
  • If you have a tumblr, we would prefer that the author make a tumblr post including the art and fic (or a link to the fic), but this is not required. It is, however, the best way of getting your fic seen!
  • The fic (with art included) must be posted by 11:00pm EST on your assigned day. It must credit the author, artist, and beta.
  • Once you have posted, please send us a link via email or tumblr message to your posted fic. We will then reblog your tumblr post or make a post on our blog with a link to your fic.
How to include your fic within the challenge (at least one of the following):
  • If you make a tumblr post for your fic, you must include the tag “Kurt Big Bang Fic”.
  • If you are making an art post, use the tag “Kurt Big Bang Art”
  • If you post on AO3, you must post to the challenge “Kurt_Big_Bang_fall_2014”. You will need to type that in. It will not show up in autocomplet. You can either go directly to the challenge (here) and click post to challenge or you can type that directly into the “collection” field
  • If you post on LJ, you must post directly to the KHBB community (kurt_bigbang.livejournal.com). This is our least prefered method because of LJ posting limits, but you’re welcome to do it.
How will the posting schedule be decided:
  • The posting schedule will be determined randomly.
  • All authors will be asked to give days on which they cannot (so days you can’t get to a computer, not just days you don’t like) post at the last check in (open now on LJ).
  • Posting will be two fics a day from October 5th through October 25th.
We will post the schedule as soon as we are finished with it, but please be patient while we gather information from the check in and put it together.

ALL OF THE CLAIM EMAILS HAVE BEEN SENT!

Hello everyone, this is just to let you all know that all claim emails have now been sent! 

If you do not receive the correct number of emails from us (you should have one email for each fic you signed up to do, so if you’re signed up for two you should have two emails), or if anything else seems odd/wrong please let us know ASAP. 

Thank you all and happy collaborating!

Just a reminder

Please post all of your writing/art liveblogging posts to the KHBB liveblog tag, not the KHBB tag so that everyone can keep up with the conversation in the liveblog tag.

Kurt Big Bang claims going out

Hi Everyone,

The KHBB claim emails are going out now. Because we both have different schedules, they may not go out all at once so please don’t panic if you don’t have one yet.

If you don’t have one (or more if you are an artist doing multiple pieces) by tomorrow morning (August 26th), please email us.

Final Warning for Authors and Artists

The Kurt Big Bang artist signups open at midnight tonight. Any author that we have not received a summary from (and there are still quite a few of you) and any artist we have not received a confirmation from is assumed to have dropped out.

If you haven’t sent us a detailed summary and you intend to participate in this bang, you must email us your detailed summary before midnight EST. Once artist claims have been sent out, there is no way for us to add anyone else.

Authors, please check your email and tumblr messages. We’ve contacted anyone whose summary we don’t have.

To All Artists:

We’ve sent you all a welcome email and we need a response from all of you confirming your participation or dropping out. We’re going to need you all to do this, so please email us back now!

This is a final reminder that any author who intends to participate in this big bang MUST send us a detailed synopsis by the end of the day today. As of right now, it’s going to be a very small event because you guys haven’t sent us your synopses.
