FKFicFest Sunset Update (Unofficial)  
Nobody has asked me for betaing or posting assistance for FKFicFest today. I hope that means that everyone is doing spectacularly well! (We should be. We've all done this before. ~grin~) With approximately 4 hours to the official deadline, we have 3 stories already on the AO3, and I know the current statuses of 3 more (1 finished but not yet queued; 2 unfinished). That leaves 3 unknowns.

I've been at my computer all day today since breakfast, polishing my own story and checking for anyone needing help. I'm going to take a break now and try to fit in a brisk walk to the park before the sun drops all the way below the horizon here, and then get some supper. I'll be back.

If you're having trouble, please do try to ask for help before bedtime tonight. :-) I was available all day today; I won't be that available tomorrow.

Bedtime update: 5 stories are loaded to the AO3! 1 announcement is queued on DW.

Finished, and as soon as I can figure out how to upload it, I'll send it along.

It could probably use a good beta-ing. :-)

Re: Story
Hi, Walt. :-) I'm making a late supper just now, but please let me know what I can clear up for you. The posting steps should be exactly the same as last year (except to the 2014 collection instead of the 2013 collection, of course). If anything has changed and you don't know what steps to take, please point it out!

Re: Story
Your story is in the collection! Congratulations!

When you have a chance, please also remember to enter your recipient's AO3 username in the "Associations" > "Gift this work to" field.

Re: Story

Re uploading: just normal uncertainties.

I think I got LastScorpion's name in the right place.

Do I have to add my name anywhere? There doesn't seem to be an author's box to check off.

Re: Story
Yes, your story is now correctly gifted to your recipient. Excellent!

:-) But: Shhh! :-) You don't want to say out here in public who your recipient is; your recipient might see your comment and be spoiled for the surprise before your story releases. :-) While the stories are in the queue, only the author (you) and the mod (me) can see who the authors and recipients are. Everyone else sees a "Mystery Story" by "Anonymous."

Regarding your name as author: when you're signed in to your account on the AO3 and post a story, it automatically records the signed-in account as the author of that story. Your story presently, correctly, shows you, WaltD, as its author.

If you'd like to change the author identification of one of your stories on the AO3 (or add a co-author), the thing to do is to click Edit on that story while signed in, and then to scroll down to the Preface block (it's the second block of fields). There, you'll see an Author / Pseud(s) field, listing your own available AO3 identities, and also an Add co-authors? checkbox.

Re: Story
Thank you.

Basically I have little confidence in my computer capabilities. :-)

Have a good night.
