A few questions (sorry, I don't mean to spam)
Can artists claim multiple fics? Is there some kind of quantity/quality requirement for artists or writers besides the 20k word count minimum? How strict is the word count minimum (i.e. if somebody writes a beautiful 19k-word story, what would you do)? What happens if somebody has family commitments, serious injury, etc., that make it impossible for them to continue the challenge partway through? If it's an artist, can another artist claim the story afterwards?

Re: A few questions (sorry, I don't mean to spam)
Hi there

We've updated the FAQ which should cover most of these questions now. Let us know if you have any further issues.
Nov. 2nd, 2013 03:19 pm (UTC)
Do you actually insist on real name use in sign-ups? Because that's a deal-breaker for some of us. :(
Nov. 2nd, 2013 04:01 pm (UTC)
No one will see the information except for the mods and it's just if we need to email you we can address it to a real name

If you really don't want to include that information just put N/A or duplicate your fandom name

Hi, mods! Just a suggestion that you fill in the interest section so people can find you. Not that there isn't room for more than one BB, but it might keep people from starting another one (http://agentofshieldbb.livejournal.com/) and claiming they're the first. And also get you more sign-ups, as well. *g*
Dec. 16th, 2013 02:48 pm (UTC)
Hi, thanks for the heads up! We've definitely filled in our interests now, hehe.

I was signed up for the other SHIELD BB and last night for some reason their comm was deleted, so I decided to sign up here. However, this morning they are back and since I have already signed up there, I am going to stay with them because I just can't jump ship like that. So if you could please ignore my sign-up I appreciate that.

Sorry, but I honestly thought they'd gone and deleted their comm for some reason and I did want to participate in a big bang in this fandom. Maybe next time!
Dec. 18th, 2013 05:34 pm (UTC)
No problem! Thanks for letting us know. We've removed you from our records

Good luck with your bigbang!

Sign-up Question
How do we know if you've received our sign-up?
Dec. 19th, 2013 02:34 am (UTC)
Re: Sign-up Question
Hello, everyone who has signed up will receive an e-mail confirming their participation at the end of the sign-up period. We can also confirm you're on our list. :)
Dec. 19th, 2013 02:59 am (UTC)
Hey guys- this is a stupid question, but have I signed up yet? My memory's not the best, and I don't want to miss signups!
Dec. 19th, 2013 03:00 am (UTC)
You have indeed signed up, and your name is on our list. :)

This is probably a silly question but is there a preferred format in which to send the finished fic? a file type etc?
Feb. 20th, 2014 04:16 pm (UTC)
We would prefer a .doc, .docx or google docs, though if you write in another file format I'm sure we can work something out. :)

Possibly weird question: are we allowed to change the title of our story before posting/send in a rough draft without a title? Because I'm done, but I'm stuck there.

Also, how finished should a rough draft be? Everything is there, but there's one scene I might expand significantly, depending on what my betas say- it hasn't been betaed yet.

Mar. 21st, 2014 05:26 pm (UTC)
Yes, submitting an untitled fic, or changing the title later is perfectly okay!

Your rough draft doesn't have to be complete, or betaed. It's to show us that you'll finish on time - so based on what you've described here, that will be more than okay. :)
Mar. 21st, 2014 05:22 pm (UTC)
I've totally missed the check-in, so sorry about that D: I'm not making that much progress but I'm determined to stay in this because I've not had much luck with writing lately and I think I just need to finish something!
Mar. 21st, 2014 05:30 pm (UTC)
Hi Cashay, thanks for letting us know! We hope you're able to finish, but you have a little bit of time before rough drafts are due. :)
Mar. 24th, 2014 09:33 pm (UTC)
Submission Question
When sending you a draft via Google docs, do you need full access to the doc? Or just viewing access?
Mar. 24th, 2014 09:35 pm (UTC)
Re: Submission Question
Viewing access should be just fine, thank you. :)

Just wanted to let someone know that I'm afraid I'll have to drop out. I've a decent start on my story, but then March went all to hell and I just forgot about it entirely. I guess I'll just have to wait for next year. :(
Apr. 1st, 2014 11:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you for letting us know, and we hope to see you again next year! ^_^

Hi there - I note that today is listed as an Artist Check-In, but I don't see a post for it - and I'm leaving in a couple of hours for the airport and a long trip without much internet access.
My piece is proceeding apace and I've been in touch with my author, and I'm on target to finish in time for the May 12th deadline.

Hope this is an ok check-in, even if a post goes up a bit later.
May. 1st, 2014 03:24 pm (UTC)
Hi, thank you for leaving us a message! The post will be going up shortly, but this will work just fine. We're very appreciative that you're keeping us updated! ^_^ Have a great trip!
May. 21st, 2014 08:01 am (UTC)
Hey guys! I'm having a problem- my story and kultiras's art are up, but I don't have posting access to the comm to link it here.
May. 21st, 2014 11:05 am (UTC)
Yikes, not sure how that happened but it should be fixed now. Community moderation is on, but we'll be watching for the entry. :) Thank you for alerting us!

Bowing out
I'm sorry, but due to personal issues I won't be able to finish the story on time. Thus, I am bowing out of the Big Bang.
Jul. 21st, 2014 02:21 am (UTC)
Re: Bowing out
That's perfectly all right, thank you so much for letting us know. :)
Aug. 5th, 2014 05:47 am (UTC)
so I'm really new to this big bang thing, but what happens after an artist claims a fic? do you send us the authors contact info so we can get in touch? Or is it up to the authors to keep an eye on the claims post and then they contact the artist?
Aug. 5th, 2014 03:33 pm (UTC)
We'll be sending out e-mails (later today, is the plan) to put artists and authors in contact with each other, and after that it's up to each pair to stay in touch for the remainder of the challenge. If anyone suddenly can't get in touch with their author/artist, it's important that we're notified asap, so we can find a pinch hitter, but we're hoping none will be necessary. :)
