Attention!

We've been receiving some feedback that participants might be struggling to complete their lovely fic on time, and that is a shame! We don't want to rush you or discourage you from submitting your work to our fest. Please do not freak out.

We're tentatively thinking of having two 'waves.' The participants who are finished and happy with their work can submit on MAY 22 at MIDNIGHT. Participants who are not finished for any reason whatsoever have some choices. Please fill out this quick poll below so we can understand how best to help you!

Poll #1744110 Submissions for the 2011 Fest

Did you feel you did not have enough time to submit your work?

Yes
2(50.0%)
No
2(50.0%)

What factors prevented you from meeting our deadline (were any of our deadlines too early, too close together, not enough betas, etc)

If we had a second wave, i.e. a second submission deadline, how much time do you want?

three more days
0(0.0%)
one more week
1(25.0%)
three more weeks
0(0.0%)
one more month
3(75.0%)
If you have any other ideas about alternative ways for us to help you submit your fic or any other comments about anything, please comment below. This is the first WTF fest, and we are very open to suggestions; you have the opportunity to shape future fests with your feedback.
 
Please feel free to message the mods about any particular concerns you may have.

lol, I think the only trouble I had with it was the timing. I just finished school and had no time to commit to anything while the semester was still in session. And then I stupidly overloaded myself two weeks before hand. :D And then school followed me home. That's my story anyway. If I had to take a guess, I would think it's mostly just the problem that many people are finishing school right now. We had plenty of time otherwise.

Thanks for letting me know! Embarrassingly, I totally forgot that people would be finishing up school at the end of May. I was going by the universities I was hearing about through friends I consulted, and a lot of them finish up at the beginning of May.
This will absolutely be taken into account when deciding the alternate posting period.

Ditto ditto ditto!

This week is my first week free, and so I think I should have plenty of time.
