Questions and Answers

If you have any questions concerning the community, post them here.





Q: What exactly do the tags mean?

The author tags are for the different users (LJ usernames to avoid any confusions). If you don't have an author tag yet, please use the author: i need a tag please tag. Your author tag will then be created.

The challenge tags are for the bi-weekly challenge. There are tags for the individual challenges and challenge: mod for the announcement of new challenges.

The pairing tags should be clear. Use pairing: other if your ficlet includes other couples as well.

genre and rating tags should also be clear.

writing: prompts/ideas/requests is for anything that you want others to write. writing: feedback/questions relates to what you have written. (Note: if you have problems with a fic and want both feedback and give it up as a plot bunny, tag it with both.) writing: challenge/ficathon is for the announcement of challenges and ficathons. writing: beta is for beta requests. Finally there is writing: meta for general discussion of writing any of the relevant couples. Please use the relevant pairing tags for writing posts as well.

mod obviously is for mod posts.






Q: I have ideas, but I can't seem to motivate myself to write.

I envy anyone, who never had this problem. I don't really have a solution, however I would like to point out words_count, a community where you can sign up with a weekly word count goal and report your daily word count. We're trying to support and encourage each other and maybe an actual recorded goal will make it easier for you to sit down and write.






Q: Can I post challenge answers after the challenge is over?

It depends ;)

Once a challenge is over, fic resulting from it (and it's great if older challenges inspire you to write) is treated like any non-challenge fic. If it's short it can be posted here, if it's long, you should post it at mckay_sheppard. You can still mention which McSheplets challenge inspired the fic and link back to the community :)

What you could also do (if you're patient ;) is wait for the end of the year when we have the "Other Side of the Deadline" challenge, where all old challenges are allowed.


Yes!
