The next round of trekreversebang
will take place after the release of the new movie and startrekbigbang
's round. So we'll be back in January of next year.
It'll give us time to revamp and reorganize and have a better plan for running a more seamelss round.
We hope you'll have fun over at startrekbigbang
in whatever form you choose then come back to join us for ours! :D
Also, would you like a series of ramp up festivities?
Thoughts and suggestions welcome in the comments.
We've reached the end of the round and I'd like to thank everyone for participating. I'd also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to our amazing artists for submitting additional pieces when they were able.
I'd like to welcome the artists who haven't posted their art to the comm for whatever reason to do so now. I'd rather your art was shared with everyone to be appreciated than held back.
Now to the unpleasant business. This round suffered from various delays for which I apologize and a confusing lack of follow through as posting neared. Out of our 20 pieces that were scheduled to be posted, only 9 were. Participation in this round was significantly lower than in the previous rounds and artists were asked to provide additional pieces if they were so inclined. I'd like to hear your thoughts on why that was the case and what can be done to ensure this reverse bang continues to have a healthy life as we move forward into future rounds.
- Were the delays a hindrance?
- Did life just get too busy toward the end?
- Are folks just not interested in Star Trek anymore?
- Are there just not enough people on LJ for a Trek Reverse Bang to be a standalone event?
- Anything else you can think of?
You're also welcome to email us at trekreversebang[at]gmail[dot]com with your feedback if you prefer a different forum.

: Kirk was never a decent father, always chose his career over his son and didn’t realize the consequences it would have. On either of their lives. Until fate, destiny, or one Christopher Pike interferes and reunites them. What happens when they’re forced to come together to save the people they love the most? Can they overcome their differences?A/N

Hello everybody! Here's the posting format.
• Only one person from each artist/author team should post. The art and fic links should go to personal ljs (or personal comms/websites etc.), nothing will be posted directly to the trekreversebang community. We would like the posting format to be as follows:( Important: Posting Format under cutCollapse )
Please feel free to contact us if any of this is unclear, or you have other questions/concerns that we have not addressed. We're looking forward to a whole bunch of amazing fic and art in the coming days \o/ Good luck everyone!
Since it looks like everyone would do better with posting toward the end of the month, our posting period will begin June 20th and go through June 29th.
A posting schedule and everything you need to know about posting will go up in the morning.
So posting's on the horizon. It will begin Monday, June 11th and to go through Saturday June 30th.
Since there's a lot fewer of you for this round the schedule may be a bit more spaced out in the previous rounds but we'll just have to see.
Please comment with the dates you'd prefer to post and the dates you absolute cannot post. Please either consult your partners or tell us who they are so we can cross reference. :)
Posting will be postponed a week so that I can unbury myself from RL and get a post asking about posting preferences up to arrange a posting schedule. Expect that post by Wednesday at the latest.
I apologize for all the delays and promise this will be the last one.
Claims are over and match up emails have been sent out. You can see who's been matched up with who in this post
. Please check that everything's been attributed properly and that the emails you've been sent contain the right information. If they don't, let us know and we'll send you the correct information and fix the attributions.
Due to the delay in claims and getting the emails out, posting will now begin on June 4th instead of May 22nd.
Hope you're all having fun.
Just putting up a reminder that second claims are open. If you're interested in writing a fic for a second piece of art, please go here
and make your claim.
I'll start sending out the match up emails later today.
Hello authors, 8 new pieces have been added courtesy of our lovely artists. Please take a look and create your claim preference numbers accordingly. Only authors are currently members so that the claims post can be for authors only. If you are an author and cannot see the art preview post
, you need to join the comm (your invite would be here
Hello authors, because of the low number of art entries, some of the artists agreed to do a few more pieces so that there was a better ratio of art:authors. Unfortunately, that means the claiming date is being pushed back again for a few days. Last time, we swear!
The new claiming date is Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 8pm EST. We will add the new artwork to the art preview post before Thursday, keep an eye out for it!
