Frostiron Bang survey results  
As it was already stated in the tumblr post, this is the result of the Frostiron Bang survey. You can see that the Mini/Big Bang idea prevailed, but fear not, we will probably host the Reverse Bang somewhere in the autumn. 80 people voted in this survey  but that doesn't meant as many people would in fact participate  We would love to get at least half of those people. Also, the number of authors is larger than the number of artists, but don't let that worry you. All stories will get an artist, rest assured.

The idea of the Mini/Big Bang is that as you apply for one or the other, it doesn't mean you have to exclusively stay with your decision in case your story grows bigger or you find yourselves with issues and have to drop to the minimum.

This entire event will be hosted on tumblr and the blog for it will be up and running by Wednesday. I do apologise for the delay, but I have fallen ill to the flu and can't really function at the moment so patience please. Basically, you only need some archive for your story (AO3, ffnet, LJ etc) for posting at the blog. The same goes for the art which means you don't have to be a member anywhere, but at tumblr.

All of this will start in June. not sure about the date yet, but probably at the early start of the month with applying for the authors. This information will be available on that blog this week.

If you have any comments or questions, feel free to ask here (comments allowed for non members as well under anon reply) or simply drop it in my ask.

will there be a Livejournal mirror-comm for this event or is it tumblr only?

Well this of started on tumblr and LJ has been recently really difficult to manage with constant breaking down. The event will be solely hosted on the tumblr since a lot of people don't have LJ and like I said, LJ is getting really difficult to code and deal with if it breaks down twice a week and revokes your access. We had major issue with responses during the last big bang we hosted on LJ and it was hell.

Are you asking because you don't have a tumblr account?
Captain Enkenkanowen on March 19th, 2013 08:09 am (UTC)
That's unfortunate that you had that experience with LJ.

And no, I have a tumblr account, but mostly I asked because there is a frostiron comm on LJ and I prefer it as a platform to track fests/post art/etc
angelicmercyangelicmercy on March 19th, 2013 08:13 am (UTC)
Yeah I mean, it was no problem for the mods, but people got late in posting things and claiming or their claims wouldn't even show.

I'm not sure just how active that comm is. I tried contacting its mod for help with this, but still no response after more than a week so the comm is not up to date. And there's a strong base on tumblr that keeps everybody up to date and it just seemed easier to base it there and forego the LJ completely. I'm sure after the bang is done, people will post their stories to that comm as well.

never had that problem with a BB before on LJ, that's crappy. I can see why you'd hold it over there. Well good luck with your endeavours, I'll just sit this one out

I'm seriously looking forward to this. I've never done a BB before, but I really hope I can write something good for it.
angelicmercyangelicmercy on March 19th, 2013 08:06 am (UTC)
Oh I'm so glad you're looking forward to it! And no worries about never doing a bang before. You'll have all the info quite soon. It's so much fun to participate.

Oh it's not embarrassing at all. The official site for it is frostiron bang. There will be no LJ community for the bang as it is completely hosted at tumblr.
