Thank you, everyone who answered the poll! From our 9 total responses:
  • Let's play again this year! Stories will be due on May 27, and start releasing May 29. Matches should go out by March 27, so sign-ups will be due by March 24, and will open by March 11.
  • Everyone (except me ~wry~) wants to play exchange-style. Let's do that, and not fuss with a minimum player count this year.
  • We'll expect recipients to acknowledge their authors with at least a 1-sentence comment no more than 1 month from posting. If a penalty is ever needed, it will be a 1-game ban (and your mod's disappointment).
More players usually mean happier matches! (As well as more total stories.) Please do promote this year's FKFicFest game far and wide yourself. You know people, communities, and platforms that I don't!

In my eyes, modly disappointment is honestly the bigger consequence than a one game ban!

I have a great deal of sympathy for your love of challenge style being stymied every year, but I'm terrible at following through on challenge style prompt commitments. I hate letting people down in exchange challenges, though, so I maintain my personal relief. (I think I say this every year, so thank you for listening to me say it every year.)

Hooray, Forever Knight!

By the way, I do not know if you have a Facebook account or not, but FK discussion randomly popped up on one of my VtM gaming groups today!

Obviously, I knew you needed to know about it. :)

Yay! I'll start thinking about prompts.
The time schedule suits me well.
Thanks for taking this on again.
