Rules Reminder & Whatnots

The first challenge will be posted very soon. In the meantime I wanted to address the results of the poll. All participants bar two filled it in, so thank you to all of you.

First, Deathly Hallows. Since not everyone has read it, challenges will not be centered around events from the book. That doesn't mean that you can't write something that refers to something that happened in the books. Spoilers are everywhere now, it'll be part of the header details that you include with your submission.

Skips. The overwhelming majority of answers, was yes to skips. So they will be included. It was mentioned about letting us know that you wouldn't be submitting, although if you can't submit, you may not be able to let us know. If you can, that would be great, but if not. My main fear with skips is that people will use them strategically, or just to avoid a challenge. I hope that that won't happen, but there is no way to police it.

Note:
All participants will have ONE skip in their possession. Once you've used that, and you don't submit for a challenge, you are out.
They will not be able to be used when there are less than five people contesting.

Now, a reminder about how this works.

- On Saturday evenings, a challenge will be posted. The participants have until 8pm AEST (Aust Eastern Standard Time) the following Wednesday to submit a Hermione-centric drabble that fits the challenge, and is between 100 & 499 words.
- There will be a header template included on the submission post that needs to be filled in, and placed at the top of your comment. Comments to the submission post are screened.
- Please note that the posting or the deadline will not be extended or postponed. If your drabble is not in at the time, it's not in. If you have a skip, that will move you into the next round, if you don't have a skip still, you will be eliminated. I've been involved with challenges were the deadline was stretched, and it's unfair to everyone who does get in on time.
- Drabbles will be posted with a voting form shortly after 8pm, on the Wednesday.
- Voting is open for 48hrs following that post. 8pm Friday. The writer with the most votes, using the tally method is eliminated.
- And then the next challenge will be posted the following Saturday, and the cycle goes on till there is one drabble writer standing.

If any of the new participants have any questions, please ask them. The next challenge will be posted shortly.

Thanks.
