Things I've thought about:
- Is 10K too big a goal for extra points?
- The unused prompt and creative medium bonuses were cool, the others are up in the air.
- I don't like how the all fic/all art bonus worked out. (points wise it hindered people who wanted to try out something new)
- I loved the grab bag prompts so much I wanted a card with all of them
- Are time periods too broad/famous people too specific?
- People seemed to have trouble with episode prompts. Why is this?
- Do we need more ways to encourage artists to join in?
- I would love a way to encourage underrepresented or minor characters to appear more often.
- What to do about tagging/lj cuts/filling out the posting form? This seems to sometimes be difficult/frustrating.
- I want a way to encourage people to try new things: artists to write fic or a poem, authors to try meta or some sort of art, artists to try a new medium.

I will leave my own feedback but wanted to comment on some of your feedback
hope that's okay
I've had no problems with episode prompts, I have much more problem with places and people
it's hard to work in a location, especially if it wasn't featured in a Sanctuary ep and to now how much is mentioning enough
I enjoyed the new prompts (think those were the grab bags)
the points sort of confused me as to how they were awarded, especially with how it seemed the 10k fic, which I happily did, didn't matter in the long run compared to other things

I had missed that poems got added, will be doing one of those in the future if it stays
loved the sci-fi tropes

only problem I've run into is dealing with the tagging the prompts at the end, I keep a notepad file and copy and paste into it whenever I make a post on my journal so at teh end I just ned to copy paste the whole thing

you're still super cool for hosting this though <3

Major/main places worked, but not the others, so you would scrap the global cities then? There seems to be some support for that.
I do think if we keep the bonus points, we need to reevaluate that. Is there anything specific you think would help fix that (limiting the number of points per bingo, making certain things worth more)

Poems are staying *g* I've grown quite fond of them myself.

Tags were wonky this round. I'm working on straightening that out.

I had a lot of fun. I hope you did too.
Cat: Helen smile resistdragonacesg7 on November 4th, 2012 04:19 pm (UTC)
I would scrap the global cities yes, or perhaps slide them as an option for the art prompts? Not sure how the artists would feel about them there.

I think adjusting how much the bonus items are worth would be good. I don't want to lessen anyone's work being recognized but some things felt like a lot more work vs. others.

oh yes I had a lot of fun! :D

That's an idea although I don't think they like them much either.

Yeah, I'll have to take a look at those again.

Thanks for the feedback!

okee-dokee :)
glad I was able to be coherent ;)

crap, am sorry if I repeat myself XD
-I loved the cross-over
-I loved the sci-fi tropes
-I dig the 'objects' prompts
-I dislike places almost as much as I dislike famous people
-I liked the unused prompts, though can't remember what unused one I used <-- this is an awkward sentence
-enjoyed the middle of the month for a deadline, so many other monthly deadlines I have are at the end or start, this let it be it's own freak out moment
-since the lists are getting longer for ideas, anyway to have one or two things ALWAYS chosen for a person as excluded? Or add an exclusion to the total?
-is swapping out items we've gotten before hard for you to do? Hate to be creating more work (though I'll happily always take Niko on my card ;)
um, think that's it...
evolution of the human soul: sanctuary :: helen/will - one nightwindandthestars on November 4th, 2012 12:07 pm (UTC)
No worries, I'm just happy you commented :D

I was wondering about the unused prompts. I'm glad you mentioned that.

The middle of the month was because I didn't want the round ending with NaNo started. It turned out to be a lot nicer than I had anticipated.

We could add more vetoes in for returning players. We tried swapping a bit this round but it got a bit brain hurty at times since there were some restrictions on it (you could only swap prompts you had filled before), maybe if we dropped that requirement it would be easier.
Cat: Helen Nikola was Heredragonacesg7 on November 4th, 2012 04:24 pm (UTC)
oh yeah that makes sense for why you had the deadline there, don't know why but it seems like so much happens at the end of months :P

I think adding vetoes for returning players would be groovy
either that or dropping the swap requirement

not sure what would be easier on you, things did seem a bit all over when we first got our cards.
I just think with bigger lists it might be easier/better to be able to say no to more

I know there was some talk before about the episodes not being liked/harder to fill but I tend to love that category (with a few exceptions ;)
evolution of the human soul: sanctuary :: helen/will - one nightwindandthestars on November 4th, 2012 10:20 pm (UTC)
Everything does seem to happen at the end/beginning of the month. I'm keeping the middle of the month thing for sanity's sake :)

Would increasing the number of vetoes work? No swapping but you could exclude more from the get go.

I love the episode category too although I can see why people would find episodes they don't like to be less inspiring. I think that's part of the challenge though.
Cat: Flying NQ Plush Tagdragonacesg7 on November 5th, 2012 01:15 am (UTC)
yay for middle of the month, hehe

I think increasing the vetoes and ditching the swapping would be helpful
and less you've got to do once we get our cards
maybe have X number of vetoes for things you don't like/don't wish to do, then Y number of Vetoes towards repeated squares

I think that for icon sets 10 icons is too easy, at least 15.

It would be cool if you gave us our point totals at the halfway point so we know where everyone stands point-wise. To encourage us to make more shiny, of course. (or so GeonnCannon can see how badly his ass is being kicked by girls) ;-)

Have you seen my LJ flist/twitter feed? Trust me, I know where I stand when it comes to women (ie, less awesome ;D)

Poor Geonn.

I was thinking ten seemed a bit lenient. Would 20 be too many?

I could put the spreadsheet up on google docs so people could check any time they wanted, or is waiting in suspense helpful?
Cat: Helen victorian bluedragonacesg7 on November 4th, 2012 04:26 pm (UTC)
forgive me for hopping into this thread ^_^;;
I don't think 20 would be too many
I had already thought it was 20 previously and had other fills with that

also I do see a lot of 20 in 20 fills people have for icon contests and things
evolution of the human soul: sanctuary :: helen/will - one nightwindandthestars on November 4th, 2012 10:24 pm (UTC)
I do see the merits in both. I'll have to think on this. 20 in 20's are popular but then again 20 times 25 prompts is 500 icons in six months.
Cat: Flying NQ Plush Tagdragonacesg7 on November 5th, 2012 01:17 am (UTC)
ah yeah, that's true :)
adeclanfanadeclanfan on November 4th, 2012 04:41 pm (UTC)
I like to see the numbers, and 20 would be too hard 15 is perfect.
