Chocobo Racing 2013 - Team Registration!

We're happy to announce that the 2013 round of Chocobo Racing is open for team registration!

Not sure what Chocobo Racing is? You can look here for last year's explanation of the Races. In a kupo-nutshell: Sign up for a team; fill prompts and get points for your team; repeat monthly with special bonus themes for extra points; the highest-scoring team next March wins the round!

We're welcoming back our three teams from last year - Ifrit, Ramuh, and Shiva - but this year we've invited our two new mods to be team leaders:



[personal profile] renay and [personal profile] seventhe will be working in the background to keep this airship flying!

At the bottom of this entry are three comments - one for each team. To officially sign up for the Chocobo Races, reply to the comment for the team you want to join. It's okay if you don't have a Dreamwidth! You can comment using your Livejournal, using an OpenID, or simply use an anonymous comment to leave us your information. It's just a lot easier for the mod team to only have to look in one place to get our current team rosters.

When you comment to sign up, please leave the following info in your comment so that we can recognize your work and give it points!



A couple other notes on Chocobo Racing sign-ups:

  • Feel free to sign up for whatever team you want to be on! They're all open and you don't have to 'know' a mod to join!

  • That being said, please try your best to make sure teams are evenly distributed. We'd hate to have 500 Ifrits and only a couple Shivas and Ramuhs.

  • Signing up doesn't commit you to anything, so if you're on the fence but interested, sign up anyway!

  • You can sign up at any point during the round! Just remember, we won't be able to count your work for points unless your sign-up is dated before your posted work. This is why, if you think there's any chance you'll want to participate later, it's a good idea to sign up now.


We'll be putting the banners up again soon to help you spread the word about your teams. For now, get ready – the 2013 Chocobo Races are about to begin…!


TEAM IFRIT



TEAM SHIVA



TEAM RAMUH


We'd also like to remind everyone from the 2013 round of DOINK! Final Fantasy Exchange to fill out our exit poll if you haven't already. We'll close it soon and start compiling your fannish ideas and opinions. :)

For those of you who are really excited, we'll give you a hint and a head start - the bonus theme for July will be anything in our database. Start looking through and collecting ideas: we'll officially open the round in a few days!
