    Yes, it's that time of year again. The Fanfic Trivia game moves back to its usual mid-summer time slot.


    For the next week or two my evil henchwomen and I will be scouring the fanfic forums for any piece of minutae from the wide variety of fics in the three story forums.

    In addition, as in last year's game, a section will be set aside entirely for a quiz on forum history and general knowledge regarding fanfiction here at TFN. [face_devil]

    As in the past, the members of the winning team will receive VIP status for two weeks as well as a catchy title proclaiming their victory.

    For now, all that's needed is for players to sign up and to choose a teammate if you so choose.

    For those new to the game, you're allowed to play solo or to team up with one other person to combine your efforts and/or frustration.

    So take some time and consider if you'd like to play and who you'd like to corral as a teammate.

    The game is tentatively scheduled for mid-July and usually lasts for just over a week. What's worked well the last few years is to give the questions on a Friday and to have a deadline nine days later on the following Sunday.

    Hope you folks are interested again. :)

    As usual, ask any questions here or PM me and I'll do my best to respond promptly. :)

    Yay! It's back!

    This was soooo much fun last year. Ok. It was more frustrating than fun in a I don't know anything about fanfic forum history kind of way. But overall it was a blast.

    I'm definitely signing up but am not sure if it's as a solo or a team. I'll have to go hit up the two friends I've made since last year for a possible partner in crime. ;)

    I think I might try again this time. Or maybe I'll stay out and give participants wrong answers by telling the authors what to say in their PMs.

    Chicken! :p


    And given how well teams did last year, this year may establish new benchmarks for cruel and unusual questions. ;) O:)

    Or maybe I'll be lazy and just throw out a bunch of easy stuff. You never know. [face_devil]

    Ooh! I watched last year, and I'm not quite sure about joining in this year. But it will be fun in any case. *grins* Glad to see it around again.
