Mini-Review Round Two
Welcome to the second Mini-Review round.




This Round covers Exchange entries posted on September 19 through September 30.

To qualify for a Mini- Review Round prize and banner, you must review every entry posted in that period (and review every chapter of multi-chaptered stories).

The only exceptions for not reviewing a story are (1) You created the gift in question and feel uncomfortable reviewing it - please cite that reason for the missing link OR (2) If a recipient's story contains any of the following warnings and you have objections to reading it, on those grounds only, you may count that recipient's spot for the Mini Round without reviewing. Please cite your reason and provide a link to the story so that the mods can verify.

Warnings eligible for this exception include: Abortion, adultery, bestiality,cannibalism, drug and/or alcohol abuse, incest, miscarriage, rape (this includes non-consensual (non-con), dubious-consent (dub-con), and the use of any mind-altering potions or spells with the intention to manipulate a person into having sex), severe abuse (including oppression, physical, emotional, sexual, and domestic violence), suicide/self-mutilation, torture or underage sex (according to the age of consent in your country/state).

Then, compile a list of direct links to your reviews, and submit them as two comments to this post by October 2, Midnight EST (New York, USA). Comments will be screened.

How to find the direct link to your review in the comments:

Look at your comment box. Directly under your user name is a time stamp.

example: 2010-04-20 02:05 pm (local) (link) ← see the link? Click on that, and your review’s location will be displayed in your browser’s address bar. Cut and paste that info into your review list.


Please use (copy & paste) the forms provided below - this will make the verifying process go faster.

And remember to check your submission carefully - you can only submit each review form ONCE (no edits allowed, to be fair to everyone). **We will allow ONE delete in case of accidental keyboard slippage.

Week One Form



Week Two Form

As of September 26, we added a house affiliation field to the week two form - it does NOT have to be your Pootermore result




PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF TWO CHANGES:

1. There are TWO textbox forms to submit, one for each week, one per comment (two comments per reviewer). Please DO NOT send review form in a pm or email. It is much easier for us to keep track of responses in one thread. Thank you!

2. If fic entries totaling more than 100k are posted on the Friday before the Review Forms are due, the submission due date will be extended 24 hours per 50k. Example: three stories equaling 110k are posted on September 30. Review Forms will be due Monday, October 3 Midnight EST (New York, USA). Two stories equaling 230k would result in a Wednesday due date, etc. The next Mini Round will still start on the scheduled Monday.


Good luck and have fun storming the castle!

I like the new change, additional time when long fics could pile up over the weekend. This weekend, I couldn't read that last multi-chaptered fic in time.

You still have until the end of today to submit you Round One forms.

:-)

If you have time, of course.

Really? Even if I didn't read the story until after midnight Sept 18th?
pokeystar From: pokeystar Date: September 19th, 2011 08:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Even if. We determined the word count needed an extra day. Plus with the comment limit snafu...

Would you like me to paste my week one form to this post or else where? I swear I am trying to not be the stupidest person participating.
pokeystar From: pokeystar Date: September 26th, 2011 03:42 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes, please paste your week one form to this post in a comment.

And the week two form, when it's complete.

There's a competition? I think I could win that one.

Dear mods

A serious question, if you please.

Were you able to check the "active recipients" list with the Mods before you did the cards? So if someone has left the exchange (disappeared into the ether, been Obliviated, whatever) and their gift is now "to the community", is their name now stricken from your list?

Side note - I love the free Snape. If you knew that the first gift was always going to be "for the Community", you could use that instead for the centre square.

Last question - does the shape of an obscure Hebrew glyph count as a bingo? *bats eyes*

Re: Dear mods

The list we received to generate the cards from consisted of the people who had turned in a gift, and were thus receiving one.

So that community gift wasn't on the list.

:-)

No. Though I might be persuaded to change my mind.
