If you have questions or comments on any of these topics, please feel free to email us.
If you use a rename token on your account, please Page-a-Mod on Livejournal or on Dreamwidth, PM the moderator journal, or email us to let us know. This ensures you remain a member of the community with your new name.
Members may choose to leave the challenge at any time, though we would appreciate if you would Page-a-Mod on Livejournal or on Dreamwidth, PM the moderator journal, or email us and include a note stating your reasons.
If you need to delete your journal temporarily, let us know. It can be confusing to wonder if a member is really gone or planning to return after a few weeks.
Grounds for Removal
There aren’t many ways you can find yourself kissing the pavement outside our walls, but there are some.
3 Check-In Strikes
If you miss three check-ins in a row, you will be removed from the community. From our experience, a member who is motivated and committed to making their goal will remember to check in. Members who fail to check in or communicate with the moderators about why they will miss a check-in tend to have lost interest and are no longer working toward their goal with the community.
0 Word Count by March
If you have not submitted some number of words by March 31, you will be removed from the community. The goal of this community is to write year round, not in one burst at the end of the year.
If we find out someone in our group has plagiarized a work, be it fanfic or original, that person is out and banned.
Sharing Website Password
If someone forgets the password, it is linked within the sidebar at the community.
Severe Behavior Issues
This includes extreme belligerence, flaming, harassment, and the like. We expect there to be occasional disagreements and a few personality clashes, but we also expect everyone to behave like adults.
Really, It’s Okay!
To ease your mind, we’d like to highlight two things that will NOT get you kicked out.
Being Behind in Your Word Count
Excepting the 0-Count requirement for March listed above, we will not kick you out if you’re behind pace.
Missing a Monthly Check-In
We won’t kick you out for missing a monthly check-in. If you miss one or two (in non-consecutive months), there won’t be any action.
