    We base it on 'board time' which is PST because it would be too hard to judge when something was posted in that authors time. It was Dec 31st 2018 based on board time. :(
    So yes, you can submit it for the started late in 2018 category if you would like and submit something else for that during the make up.

    Thanks @Findswoman for asking that and @mavjade for answering! I was wondering about that story's posting time too.

    What? Well, just from curiosoity - did I overlook anything about that when I posted? I know I was thinking time zones before I wrote and posted the first one but assumed that it had to be in local time zone, else it would be a bit complicated to keep track on for the authors. I was at home that new year's eve and spent the evening trying to make up some of the plot in my head before actually writing it down after midnight while waiting for my mother who actually went to a new year's party with her friends. [face_tee_hee]

    It doesn't really matter now of course. What has been done, has been done.

    Thanks so much for the clarification, Mav. I accidentally went and started to edit my post with the new entry, but I’ll wait till the makeup period instead, and meanwhile I’ll put Cara’s DDC up for the Dec. 2018 category. Sorry about the mixup!

    The challenge itself may be based on your timezone (and many are) because however the host wants to set it is fine. But for purposes of this Fest (or any fanfic wide awards type thing) we have to have consistent and easy to verify rules. We can't know everyone's timezone, nor take the time to find it out. But because stories posted very late in the year tend to be overlooked, we added a posted in November or December the previous year category to help with that.

    A couple of questions:

    Can we nominate a single story in a collection thread, and if so does just the canonicity of that specific story count or do we have to take into account the thread as a whole?

    Also, is Rebels still New Canon?

    Thanks!

    @pronker -- In the meantime, I suggest we all tag ourselves. I am Making Flappy Bird Arm Motions.

    Ha! And to think I see a bit of myself in Making Flappy Bird Arm Motions. :p [face_mischief]

    Yes! You can most certainly nominate a single story out of a thread, we have lots of precedence for that. And if the canonicity of the single story is right, that's all that matters.

    And Rebels is definitely part of New Canon! :D

    Excellent idea to tag ourselves! Fanfics generally involve sitting, although one may stand while reading on one's phone on the subway, recline in bed or on the couch while thinking of how to respond to the week's categories, etc., so let's change that up. I challenge myself et al. to get physical: roll the shoulders, twitch the toes, do isometrics with the fingers, and exercise the body part that most needs it, the glutes. Yes! On count of three, clench those glutes! All together now!

    One two three CLENCH!

    and relax and

    CLENCH!

    and relax and

    CLENCH! Harder! You can do it! Let's go, peeps!!

    Let me hear your body talk. Let's get physical, physical I wanna get physical Let's get into physical Let me hear your body talk, your body talk ...

    Just sent nominations in for the Author categories. [face_dancing] How's everyone doing as the festival progresses? I've lost my flip-flops. A porg stole them. But I'm ready to dance as we all stand roundabouts six feet from each other.

    But hey, the OT has some great fashions for these times. :vader:

    I’m very remiss in waiting so long to say so, but I wanted to congratulate everyone who was nominated as “best” and to say thank you most sincerely to those who nominated me.
