I know this community is quite possibly dead, and that's mostly because of my lack of participation and moderation, but I'm going to try this yet again. Yeah, my real life situation has sucked. No excuses, though.
Anyway, I'm going to attempt yet another comeback and get everything squared away. I've noticed that a few people were quite close to finishing out their claims. I would very much like to see them completed (since you're so close anyway!) before I do the purge around the first of October. Yes, I know I should do it now and start everything all over again anew, but I don't want the efforts of those who have already posted (and maybe even completed) their claims to go to waste.
So here is the deal: For those of you who have posted and nearly have your claims complete, you're getting one more extension. You have until the first of October to post your snippet of fiction (or your artwork) then add a comment to the I'm Done/I Quit thread to let me know. However, if you're not inclined to complete your claim, you need to let me know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so I can clear that claim out and let someone else have a stab at it.
If I do not hear back from the participants by October 1st, I will assume no one wants their claims any longer. I will then purge the community clean of claims, and, if the person wants that claim back, (s)he will have to wait until November 1st to reclaim. Sorry, guys, but I need to clear things out and allow others to play. I've got a lot of time now so I'm going to do my best to catch up and hopefully whip this place into an awesome writing challenge community.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment here or to send me a PM. I promise I won't bite you! (Unless you ask, of course. ;))
Until October, kids, have fun!
