For everyone emailing me, the revised reveal date is the 26th.
I am working on the site now, the only thing left to do are the artist pages and the feedback community. Assuming nothing else goes wrong, the site will go live after I've gotten home from work on Thursday - so expect it late Thursday (early Friday at the latest if I end up working extremely late).
Please do not innudate me with emails asking why it is not posted yet. My mother went into the hospital this weekend, I've been working 12-15 hour days, and am doing the coding myself not to mention the issues with artists dropping out. I am getting the site together as fast as I can but you're all just going to have to bear with me here.
I'm looking for an artist that can pinch hit for a story since an artist has not sent me their art and not responded to my attempts at contact. If any of the artists that have finished their art are able to take on another story, it would be greatly appreciated.
This is a reminder to all artists that your final art is due on MAY 2ND!
You need to include a header:
You also need to include a teaser that is exactly 300 pixels by 150 pixels and a tiny teaser pic that is 150 pixels by 75 pixels.
Because I have family visiting for the next week and I won't actually get the chance to do anything with the stories until after they have left, I decided that it would make more sense to give the authors an extra week to do the final edits/betas rather than simply having the completed stories sitting in my inbox gathering dust.
If you do have your story ready by the 26th, you're more than welcome to send it. I will try and respond to you asap to let you know I receieved it (though, with my family here I have not been getting online much more than once a day). Those that need the extra week can have until April 2nd - a week from this Saturday - to get me the final versions.
I am still waiting to hear from a few artists, letting me know you received the stories you claimed. PLEASE email me and let me know you have gotten your story, or you will be getting a second email with it. ;) I will wait to hear from the remaining artists until tomorrow evening. If I have not heard from you by then, I will be resending the email.
I have sent out all the stories to the artists. Artists, if you have not received an email from me, CONTACT ME immediately. If you HAVE received your story, please let me know as well.
Because of the two day delay in stories going out, the final art deadline will be moved ahead by two days to give artists the full time needed to complete their art.
March 21st - STORIES GO TO ARTISTS
March 26th - FINAL STORY DRAFT DUE
May 2nd - FINAL ART/VIDS DUE
May 26th - BIG BANG GOES LIVE!
Most of you probably assumed it was a mistake, but just in case, there was a mistake made in the schedule. I had added a "to get art" note, however I added it to the wrong date. I added it to the FINAL story deadline instead of the story draft deadline. I've since edited the post.
Story drafts are due March 12th - if you wish to receive art, I MUST have your stories on the 12th.
