Femme-fic Claiming Reminder  
Today, Monday 08/23, is the final day to claim an initial prompt on the 2010 femme_fic / [community profile] femme_fic game, according to the posted timeline.  I forgot about the deadline; I just went and staked a claim myself at lunchtime.  I hope it's not too late to remind others interested in playing.

There are three remaining unclaimed FK prompts (Natpacker and Nanette on LJ, Urchin on DW), one HL (Tessa on LJ), and of course many prompts in a multitude of other fandoms.

happy last-minute results
I see that you got to snag a Stargate: Atlantis prompt, and that your FK prompt got picked! :-)

>"a low turn-up of sorts."

Yes. Having just 1/3 of the total prompts claimed could equal 100% participation (if each player claimed just one prompt), but even so, the number of claims seems low.

I've been thinking about the reasons why. The claiming model may be simply less appealing than the matching model. There may be competing fication games going on right now. Etc. But the possibility that most intrigues me right now is that having no limits on fandoms may have, in a curious way, led to fewer fandoms being represented; that is, what if allowing an individual's three prompts to all come from the same fandom led to a smaller final variety of prompts from which players could choose?

(As an example, aside from the prompts I submitted myself, there were only three prompts submitted that I could theoretically write, across all the fandoms I know.)

Just something I'm thinking about. :-) I want to better understand what makes ficathon events succeed and fail in different areas.
