It's a HARRY POTTER COMMENT-A-THON! Right in time for the holidays. :)
Using writcraft's Comment-A-Thon format – with permission! – I thought it'd be fun to go run one of these and comment for your House of choice. :D
I think we all agree comments are an important part of our community. It brings us together, it encourages artists and writers to keep creating, often a comment is the beginning of an amazing friendship that transcends time and space. In many ways, comments is how we connect to each other, and this season, as any other time of the year, is important to remember that and celebrate that. So I present you:
I'll be running this here at DW and Tumblr, but you're also welcome to sign up at LJ as well! Please be part of this. <3
Runs from December 1st to January 6th which is when the Comment-a-thon officially will end. You'll get a couple of days to count your score and submit your final point count until Jan 8th. I'll announce each house winner the 10th. (Don't worry! I'll post a reminder later on the month along with a form. :D)
Since the end of the year is filled with fests and new stories and new art, we'll focus on works being posted through this month. Any pair, or gen fic and art counts!
Being part of this Comment-a-thon is super easy. Basically: One comment, one point. :) BUT! But there are ways for you to get extra points!
HOW TO PLAY:
POINT SCORING: COMMENTS
This is simple: One point per comment. Any story/art created this holiday season counts!
However, if you leave (at least) 31 comments to individual fanworks this month - look at this as a comment per day (Advent series don't count, see bellow why!) – award yourself a BONUS 20 POINTS. Though you can leave as many comments as you want, and please, please do, you can only award yourself this bonus just the once. :)
POINT SCORING: ADVENT FICS
Several writers go the distance and write advent fics/series (comics and drawings totally count as advent!). Given the busy time of the year this seems incredible to me. For those who are going to follow advent works, give yourself a BONUS 20 POINTS for a completed Advent you follow along with your individual point per comment. Bear in mind that you can only award this bonus ONCE, even if you're following several advent series.
For the purpose of this Comment-a-thon, an Advent is going to be a series of 25 stories/ficles/drabbles/drawings by the same author/artist. It doesn't have to be part of a single story/verse/series. If an author is writing 25 fics/drabbles/drawing for individual prompts, it counts as an Advent. :)
Remember Advent points should not be added to the 31 individual comments for that bonus. ^^
POINT SCORING: RECS
Recs are wonderful! :D They absolutely spread good cheer and, as it is with comments, the more the merrier! Award yourself a BONUS OF 20 POINTS for every 10 recs you make!
Remember that for a rec to be part of this bonus you need to LINK to the original work and you have to write a small paragraph (or a long one, HEY! :D) telling why you're reccing it.
We'll be going with the honour system. We're very honourable people, aren't we? ;D but if you are like me and like to keep things tidy you are welcome to download this spreadsheet: HERE. Just click on File and download as. :)
ARE YOU READY!?!? Alright! *\o/*
Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to leave as many comments as possible. And it starts right here:
GRAB THE BANNER OF YOUR HOUSE OF CHOICE:
SIGN UP FORM:
This Comment-A-Thon is just for fun! Seriously, don't stress yourself, just sign up and enjoy. If you're planning to leave a hundred comments (it's absolutely possible, trust me!) sign up, if you think you'll only be able to leave a handful, also sign up and be part of this. The idea is to come together and have fun, and leave as much love to fanworks creators as possible. Don't be shy, we're all in the same boat! Er, metaphorically speaking. ;)
Hang on! Prizes! There will be prizes! \o/ I am hoping I can convince a few friends to create a little something for different House winners. :)
But really, we're doing this for fun, because we care, it's not a competition, it's not an obligation. Just comment, share the love, every comment counts, not just as a House point, but that one comment you might leave through this Comment-A-Thon is going to make someone very happy, it's going to make a difference to that someone, that's what matter, that is the spirit, okay? Enjoy it! <3
