We're now into the second day of the challenge, and what a wild and wonderful two days it has been! :)

Text-Only Player Pages

Those of you who requested text-only player pages, they are ready. (Access text only player pages here.) I am still putting the final stamps on cards there, but you can get the idea of what they will look like.

Satisfying Two Days' Prompts in One Piece

Now that we have two BINGO numbers posted, I've been asked this question a few times, which the teacher in me knows means that more of you are wondering but haven't asked. :)

Is it okay to use prompts from both days' numbers in a single story?

Yes! Absolutely! If you want to combine "Maglor the Mighty" for I18 (Sons of Feanor card) with Thuringwethil and Other Vampires for O72 (Horror card), you are welcome to do so. However, please remember that you'd need to observe the deadline for both numbers. So you'd need to claim your stamp for I18 today; there is no extension because you're also working on the O72 prompts in the same piece.

Please also make sure you request stamps on both relevant posts, meaning you need to comment on the I18 post with the cards you need stamped for I18, and again on the O72 post with the cards you need stamped for O72. We currently have almost 90 participants signed up for this challenge. We have five volunteers stamping cards. It's really important that they have one place where they can see whose cards need stamping. Requests made in the wrong place won't be fulfilled.

Player Page Updates

Several participants requested cards shortly before the challenge started or after the challenge started. This is fine; you can continue to request new cards throughout the challenge, if you'd like. Several of you have asked me when your player pages will be ready or updated, so that again tells me many more of you are wondering but haven't asked! :)

I initially set a soft deadline for card requests to be in by the end of last weekend (Feb. 26) in order to guarantee your player page would be ready for the first day of the challenge. I ended up satisfying requests through Tuesday morning EST, so that deadline was extended by almost two days. That allowed five days to choose from the full list, and some of the cards have been posted for over a month.

I realize that it's a pain in the tail to have to sift through the card claim page, and that it's not as much fun if you can't see your stamps when you earn them. Unfortunately, at this point, player pages are relatively low on my list of priorities. The first few days of a challenge like this always verge on insane, as the other volunteers and I answer questions, fix mistakes on the pages, and of course, stamp cards. This will slow down--it already is--and we'll be free to work on other matters. My hope is to get at least the new players set up this weekend. My fellow stampers have been a huge help in getting player pages created and updated as well. I'd like to get everyone updated, but player pages are made by hand, and I currently have 31 update requests in my inbox from the past few days alone. I very much appreciate everyone's patience as the other volunteers and I work through these.

Community Tags

There are a few tags set up on the community right now for admin purposes, namely 2012:bingo cards and 2012:bingo number. Please don't add these tags to stories, especially the latter, which was set up so that visitors could find the day's number with relative ease.

I'd like to set up a tagging system so that it's possible to find pieces by BINGO number (e.g., all pieces created for I18), BINGO card (e.g., all pieces created for the "All OCs, All the Time" card), and character, genre, pairing, format, et cetera ... the usual stuff people look for. Anyone willing to help with tagging, do let me know.

Again, it's been truly awesome to see this event take off the way it has! To see the number of new fanworks being created, the enthusiasm and support we all show for each other, and the new friendships being forged always make B2MeM well worth the effort. Keep creating and keep having fun! :)

B2MeM Challenge: I18, Write What You Know (a character with whom you have something in common)
Format: Ficlet
Title: No Longer the Same
Genre: Angst, mild hurt/comfort
Rating: PG/K+
Warnings: Angst, some food detail
Characters: Frodo, Aragorn
Pairings: N/A
Summary: Frodo's suffering failed to end with the Quest.
Author's Note: Frodo is the character to whom I relate most closely; I also relate to some degree to Sam and Eowyn, and I may do ficlets for them at some point...but my nickname in childhood cancer circles has been Frodo for about a decade and a half, because Frodo's experience is mine. There is a myth that the endpoint of treatment is the end of the suffering, but in some ways it is only beginning. I have struggled for decades with survivor guilt, post-traumatic stress symptoms, and severe depression, including suicidal thoughts. Frodo tells my story. It is only right that I, in turn, should tell his, which is why I spend so much time writing Frodo h/c fic.
