Rules

(Adapted from hc_bingo)

Rules

Sign ups: cards can be requested anytime before September 30, 2010
Round one: June 20, 2010 to Dec 31, 2010
Amnesty period: Jan 1, 2011 to March 31, 2011

1. Each bingo card is a randomized 5x5 grid filled with schmoop prompts drawn from a master list. The goal is to make a bingo on your card. A bingo can be made as a line, blackout, X, or +. For more information see Points and Scoring.

2. Squares are marked off toward a bingo or an extra by filling the prompt within the square. For each square a new piece of fanwork (fic, art, vid, etc.) must be created.

3. You can submit any kind of fannish content: fics, art, vids, podfics, picspams, icons, and mixes. To keep the amount of work a fill takes consistent there are minimum requirements for a fill. They are as follows:

fic - 500 words
art - medium sized
icons - set of 10
podfic - 500 word fic
picspam - 20 pics
vids - 30 seconds
mix - 10 songs

4. After completing your first bingo you may complete extras on your current card or request a new card. Extras cannot be completed until the bingo has been made and they do not count toward a bingo. For more information on extras see Points and Scoring.

5. You must complete at least one bingo on your card before requesting a new one. Once you request a new card, you may not go back and score additional points from your first card. If you would like to do extras, you must complete them before asking for a new card. You may request a maximum of three cards per round.

6. Anything already publicly posted may not be used to fill a square for schmoop bingo; however, new chapters of an existing WIP may be used as long as the chapter containing the fill is not posted prior to the start of Round 1.

7. You can reuse any square on your card as many times as you want but each use must be a new piece of fic, art, etc. A fill cannot be used in more than one bingo or extra. You may put more than one fill in a multi-chaptered work but each fill must be in a separate chapter.

8. Fills can be posted where you see fit (your journal, communities, AO3, etc.). To receive a bingo, and the relevant points, you must post to the schmoop bingo community. All links need to go to open posts (no locked/private entries/sites). For more information see Posting Template below. We will only count points for what is posted to the comm before 11:59 p.m. Dec 31 in your local time zone.

9. By signing up for a card you are committing to fill at least one prompt by the end of the round. Since it's not an exchange challenge, there's no penalty for defaulting: ultimately, you need to fill just one square during the posting / amnesty periods to be eligible for the next round.

10. If you have not filled a prompt by Dec 31, 2010 you can still fill prompts during the amnesty period. Prompts filled during the amnesty period will not receive points.

11. Your fanwork should have more than just a singular mention of the prompt. It should deal with it in some way. For example, if your prompt is "stuffed animal" that should be a significant factor in your fanwork, not just a passing mention. How you deal with a prompt is left at your discretion.

12. As this is a schmoop-writing challenge, please do not go overboard on the angst and use warnings for potentially triggering content. However, if you feel that a prompt(s) is triggering to you, please email the mods (schmoop.bingo.mods at gmail.com) and we will work with you.

Prizes

There will be first, second, and third place winning slots. The winners will be determined by who has accrued the most points with their bingos. Prizes will be as follows:

Third place - 10 icons of whatever fandom/images the winner likes
Second place - 20 icons of whatever fandom/images the winner likes
First place - 30 icons of whatever fandom/images the winner likes

All Bingos - participation banner/icon
Blackouts - personalized banner/icon

There will also be arbitrary mod prizes that are, naturally, arbitrary, but those winners will each receive one wallpaper of whatever fandom/images they like.

If you are interested in making prize artwork, please PM any of the mods (please put 'Schmoop Bingo' in the header) or email the mods.

Signing Up for a Card

To sign up for a card please leave a comment in the sign up post. This will be the community where you will post your completed fills after you get your card.

Posting Template:

Please title your post, "BINGO: diagonal line" or "BINGO: blackout" or "EXTRA: postage stamp story" or "EXTRA: double line stories" or whatever combo it is that you are submitting for scoring. During the amnesty period all posts must be titled "AMNESTY: number and type of things made" (ex. AMNESTY: 2 Vids).

Then use this template for the body of the post:

Schmoop: (list of prompts written)

**use an lj cut** (how to use cut tags)

Title: name of first submission
