Reverse Bang Update

I'm sorry to any writers who've been watching the community since yesterday waiting to sign up! But I'm sad to say that there were no media creator sign-ups, so there's nothing to post.

This is my own fault as much as anything else; my schedule turned out to be way more hectic than I was expecting this past month and I didn't have the time to keep making reminder posts and advertise as much as I usually do with a challenge.

I've got three options for y'all to weigh in on now:

1) Give up on the idea for now, and try again next year. It's disappointing for anyone who was looking forward to the challenge, but so it goes.

2) Push the schedule back two weeks in the hopes that some people did start media creations, but forgot to finish them and do a quick advertising push around to remind people that this thing exists in case they want to get in on it. On the downside anyone just hearing about it would get a very truncated amount of time to work in, but on the other hand that happens if you come into a challenge late anyway! The plus is that this wouldn't end up messing up the schedule of anything else.
Actually, let's add in option 2b) Push the schedule back two weeks, and allow media creators to submit a previously completed work that they'd like to see fic based on. Although I'd prefer to have everything created new for the challenge, even more than that I'd prefer there be a challenge at all and I'm sure most writers wouldn't care if a piece of art isn't brand-spanking-new as long as it inspires them.

3) Give the media creators a whole other month to work, because your mod really did drop the ball on keeping this thing rolling. I'll be honest, this is my least favorite option because it would mean pushing the start of the main big bang back, and that in turn would lead to an overlap in the end period of the big bang and the start of the fic exchange, but I'd be willing to do it if there are a good amount of media creators who are sure they'd get something done on time this time.

Please discuss in the comments what you'd all prefer!

I vote option 2b). I like the idea of media creators being able to post a previously completed work, as it would widen participation. I was looking forward to this challenge and would be sad to see it go.

2b sounds like a good plan.

I'm new to the comm, but I vote 2b; it sounds like a plan to me. Although I'm not an artist.

:( Damn, I wish I heard about this earlier! I would have been all over this but with finals fast approaching, I'm pressed for time.

EDIT: I am all for option 3, actually. I cannot guarantee quality work under 2 weeks.

If it helps, pieces don't actually need to be complete until the end of April when works are posted. What needs to be submitted by the due date for artist sign-ups is a roughdraft that's complete enough for authors to be able to tell what's going on in it when they're picking a piece to write from.

WELL THEN, option 2b it is.

still going?
I found the link to this in the art forum and think it would be fun to make a fan-fic drawing to have someone base a story off. Is there still time to get in on this? My art isn't the BEST, but it's decent and I can get at least something rough to you pretty quickly.
