And now, the moment you've been waiting so patiently for: the very last HSO post!
We'd like to thank everyone who helped make this challenge possible--mods, first readers, data crunchers, and emergency volunteers of all stripes (y'all know who you are!)--but especially all of you, for participating. When we first started up HSO, we could never have imagined that it would become the behemoth that it did, and we have been continually astounded by the effort, creativity, and sheer ambition of the work you've put forth here, both in 2011 and now. And we just want to say--we've never thought of this as a competition! You guys are all awesome, points or no points, and you should be proud of what you've accomplished over the past couple of months.
Unfortunately, it's become increasingly obvious that even with a full team of supporting mods, the HSO has gotten way, way too big for us to handle. This sort of event really isn't structured to handle more than a couple hundred participants, and it's simply not fair to anyone involved for us to try to keep going.
In short, we regret to announce that there will be no HSO 2013--this is the end of the line for us. Running the HSO for the past two seasons has been an unforgettable experience, and we're so glad you could share it with us! We wish you all the best in your future shipping endeavors.
Sincerely,
Your friendly mod team

So here are the team standings as of the conclusion of Round 3. After the Collab Round voting closes there should be a substantial shuffle as we count the scores of the winners, the points from Bonus Round 6, as well as voting bonuses, so look forward to it! It's still anyone's game!

Bonus Round 6


Recs


Hey, shippers! This is the last bonus round, which we’re all very sad about. So let’s talk about some of the awesome stuff created throughout the HSO!

Rules

  2. You may not recommend material created by members of your own team.

  3. Each recommendation must include at least three full sentences about why it’s awesome. Please use the format specified below.

  4. You may recommend as many sets as you like, so long as each set has at least three recs in it.


Title & Rec Format
If you are doing a fill, use this format in your title.

Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team YOU belong to; please use the characters and quadrant, not whatever portmanteau or nickname you've come up with.
If your team name is not in this format and in the title we cannot guarantee that it will be counted.

The content of the post should be in this format (extend as necessary):


Posts not using this format in the title will be understood to be unofficial discussion posts, no matter what they contain. They, like all comments on the comm, are subject to the Wank Policy.

If this table seems imbalanced that's because, it is! Due to a lack of voter turnout we had several ties, and in the case of sector 2 the votes were so concentrated we couldn't get an entry for slot 12. Voting for this phase will be up soon!

Meanwhile, the entries for the collab round are also up! But due to numbers we will not be doing bracketed votes for the collab round, so please read and play all of the entries! We'll be making a post closer to the voting period, collecting the entries for your convenience. For now you can find them here, here, here and here!

Happy shipping!

Hello shippers!

I just realized in posting this that the last time we made a standings announcement, it was before we had the results in for round 1. We're really sorry about this!! Hopefully this won't happen again and we can increase the frequency of standing posts. The only thing I believe is unaccounted for on this list is the bonuses for team voting. It may include the bonuses for round 1, I'm not entirely certain, but the numbers are subject to change!

Bonus Round 5


Tales from the Road


Hey, shippers! HSO is winding down, so we thought we'd take a look back at the journey, so to speak. With that in mind, this next bonus round is going to be roadtrip-themed! Give us a little taste of your characters' life on the road, whatever form that takes.

Rules
  1. Submit prompts! Prompts should consist of one ship (friendship/gen is fine too!) and a location. This cannot be your team's ship! This round we will not be giving points for prompts.

  2. Look through the prompts and fill whichever you like!

  3. You may not fill prompts for your ship, nor may you fill your own team's prompts.

  4. Fills should be posted as replies to the prompts which they are for, following the format below. They may be any medium.


Title Format
If you are starting a new thread, please use this format in your title.

Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team YOU belong to; please use the characters and quadrant, not whatever portmanteau or nickname you've come up with.

If you are filling a prompt, use this format in your title.

Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team YOU belong to; please use the characters and quadrant, not whatever portmanteau or nickname you've come up with.
If your team name is not in this format and in the title we cannot guarantee that it will be counted.

Bonus Round 4


Mobius Double Reacharound FST - Revisited



Hi shippers! Welcome to Bonus Round 4! Bringing back a favourite from last year! (Sorry for the delay, we're very busy!)

Here’s how this is going to work: somebody will submit a selection of 3-6 songs without comment. Then somebody else will come along and create a companion fanwork to fit the soundtrack!

Rules
  1. If you are submitting a soundtrack: submit only the track listing and download or youtube links. The idea is that people should ~interpret~ your selections!

  2. You are not allowed to fill soundtrack prompts with your team's ship, nor are you allowed to fill your own soundtracks. (Filling your team's soundtracks is okay!)

  3. Soundtracks count for 5 points each, for a maximum of 100 points per team.

  4. Fills may be in whatever format you choose (except FST, of course) so long as they link the songs by mood and/or lyrics in some kind of narrative.

  5. Post your fill as a comment to the prompt post, using the title format described below.

  6. This challenge will run until 11:59PM EST August 3rd.



Title Format

If you are starting a new thread, please use this format in your title.

Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team YOU belong to; please use the characters and quadrant, not whatever portmanteau or nickname you've come up with.
If your team name is not in this format and in the title we cannot guarantee that it will be counted.

If you are filling a prompt, use this format in your title.

Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team YOU belong to; please use the characters and quadrant, not whatever portmanteau or nickname you've come up with.
If your team name is not in this format and in the title we cannot guarantee that it will be counted.

Posts not using this format in the title will be understood to be unofficial discussion posts, no matter what they contain. They, like all comments on the comm, are subject to the Wank Policy.

Scoring
For prompt posts: 5 points each (maximum of 100 per team)

For Fills (as stated here)
First 5 entries per team: 30 (per entry)
Entries 6-10: 20 (per entry)
Entries 11-15: 10 (per entry)
Entries 16+: 5 (per entry)

All scored content must be created/assembled new for this round.

That's right, friends! It's the moment you've all been waiting for! Here are the winners of HSO Round 1!

And the winners are...! )

Everyone please remember that Round 3 Entries are due by 11:59 EST tonight! So you have about an hour and a half from when this post goes up to have your piece in on time.

Happy Shipping!

Hey, shippers!

We're sorry for the delay, but the Round Two Phase One voting is up now! We've had a lot of problems with gforms, which we've been using for the voting up until now--some of you know this very well!--so we're trying things a little differently this time, and we hope that it will work better. This round, you'll post your votes in screened comments on DW, and we will enter the votes into our handy dandy spreadsheet by hand, which should minimize screwups! Unfortunately, this means we will no longer be able to weight votes to account for which entries were read more frequently. We ask that you instead please read as much of your assigned sector as you reasonably can before voting, and that you not vote if you have not read a majority of the entries.

You must vote for five different teams, all of which must have submitted entries in this round of the HSO. Incorrect voting will be disregarded, and may be penalized.

Members of Sector One should vote here.
Members of Sector Two should vote here.
Members of Sector Three should vote here.
Members of Sector Four should vote here.

Voting will close this Saturday, July 21, at 11:59 PM EST.

Hey shippers,
Just a quick update on voting--google forms has been acting up for us too, but we're hoping it will be resolved by the end of today! That means we'll have to ask you to please be patient with us as we get the R2 phase 1 voting form and the R1 results together.
-mimicre
hso_mods: (Default)
[personal profile] hso_mods
You can find the voting form here. ETA: link should be fixed!

All HSO participants are eligible to vote in Phase Two, including Team English.

Remember that you must vote for five different teams, none of which is your own. If you fail to do this, you will be penalized 10 points! If you are worried you have voted incorrectly, or submitted multiple votes, please email us. Do not re-submit, and do not assume that we'll miss it and your vote will be counted anyway. We won't and it won't.

Voting will close Sunday, July 15 at 11:59 PM EDT.

Please note that this voting form is for Round One only! NOT Round Two.
