Admin Note

Once again, another admin post...

There's no easy way to say this, but your mods trixie_chick and blue_cage will be stepping down, effective immediately, and passing the baton to the new mods, verloren1983 and akira_chan. We have every confidence that they will continue the fun and excitement of deadlines and guessing that is blind go.

trixie came on as mod in August of '08, and Pye in February of '11. It's been a tremendous honor and privilege to be caretakers for this great challenge and for this great community. Hikaru no Go is an amazing series, but its fans are every bit as amazing and wonderful. Thank you all for your support and patience over the years, and thank you for continuing to show your love for this series and your enthusiasm for this challenge time and time again!!

We hope that you will be gentle with your new mods, heh, and we know this challenge is going to continue for a long, long time to come. And don't worry, we'll still be around... trixie in particular is looking forward to epically failing at guessing for the first time in a loooong time in the next round!

Good luck and much love to you all, especially verloren1983 and akira_chan!!!

Hello!! A favor to ask of you... as the last bit of "tidying up" for Round 014, the fics will be labelled as to who wrote 'em, and tags will be added for authors. Generally, the tags have been made using the user ID, that is, an individual's livejournal or dreamwidth username, or whatever username was given at sign ups. Especially now that we are bridging between livejournal and dreamwidth, and because the challenge has been ongoing for so long now, I'd like to ask that people check to be sure that the name their fics are being tagged with is the name they want associated with their fiction. People change usernames over time, and maybe now if someone is more active on dreamwidth or on AO3, they would prefer the name associated with that account to be used for the tags.

So!! Especially if you have changed usernames at any point since first participating in the challenge, please take a look at the tags and be sure that your fics/works are being tagged the way you want them to be. You can find a list of tags here:

On livejournal
On dreamwidth

Though, keep in mind, the dreamwidth tag list links only lead to the list of fics from previous rounds on the dreamwidth account.

IF you would like your tags changed, please comment here to let us know!! Otherwise, when your entry for Round 014 is labelled and tagged, your username given for the round will be used. For simplicity's sake, we'd prefer the tags be as seamless as possible, but it's ultimately your name, so... we wanna get it right!

Thank you!!

The deadline for guessing is September 29th, 11:59pm ET. Please be sure to check that you're guessing writers who have actually submitted fics for this round; we've had incidents in the past where people have guessed writers who didn't submit.

Remember, you are encouraged to constructively comment to fics - anonymously, and with your author IDs. In fact, the authors are really hoping you will!!

Please comment to this screened post...

⇒ if your name appears or does not appear on the author's list in error.
⇒ if there are any mistakes in the links to the fics, or if there is a typo or other small correction in your fic that you would like changed.
⇒ with the names of people who are not allowed to guess for your fic (e.g. betas, friends whom you've discussed it with, people whom you've verified your ID for in facilitation of your own guessing post, etc.).
with your guesses!!

Enjoy, and thank you!!
