All members must participate in the monthly check-ins. Each month, members provide their current year-to-date (YTD) totals to the moderators. Your YTD word count or day count should never decrease. The YTD reflects all the words you wrote during 2019 (even if you later edit them out), or all the days you worked on writing during 2019. You will only ever be required to provide numbers; sharing what is written is completely optional.
If you know you will be unavailable during the time frame for an upcoming check-in, you can request to be excused by using the Dreamwidth Page-a-Mod, PMing the moderator journal, or emailing us.
3 months in a row without checking in will result in your removal from the community. Missing more than 6 check-ins over the course of the year will result in your removal from the community.
