Hey guys! Looks like we have a few author guessing posts up, so you know what that means... here we have the gathering spot for all the posts! For anyone new, this is how it works. Some authors put up posts for their own private guessing game, either on their own personal journal or here on kifu_archive- offering some kind of prize for correct guesses. It can be a fun way to get drabbles and stuff out of people. ^_~ The post should, obviously, be screened for comments so other players don't potentially give you away. That being said, guesses should not be confirmed or denied until after the reveals, because that disqualifies them from guessing on the actual blind_go post! Also, even though it's a tradition, not everybody does it, so you shouldn't feel pressured into making one if you don't want to. Prizes don't have to be writing, either. We've had people offer up icons, art, FST's, playlists, layouts... your imagination is the limit, yeah? :D

I don't know how many people were planning on putting up guessing posts, but should anyone be interested... this will serve as the gathering place for those posts. It's always useful when those things are in one place. ^_^ So if you have a post up for guessing that's not on the list here, just comment and it'll be added. :D

Also, don't forget to guess on the main post where the fics are. The deadline for guessing is September 29th, 11:59 pm EST- TOMORROW- you don't want to miss it! Comment! Guess! Love! ♥

Hello! This is a bit late, but if anyone wants to play, here it is.

Comment to this post with which fic you think I wrote for BG and a prompt for a ficlet you'd like me to write you. If you are correct, I will write you something. If you aren't correct, but I like your prompt, I will probably write it for you anyway. ;p

Fics are up! We all know that guessing is hard- putting a bunch of fics together like this and wanting people to guess who's who certainly isn't going to be easy, and it might be getting a bit confusing. SO. This post is for dropping hints! How does this work?

1. All comments should be anonymous!! We're talking hints, after all!
2a. Authors - leave little hints as to what you wrote! ETA: sign your anon comments with your author ID, please!!
2b. Guessers - leave little hints to the writers you think you know... OR ask questions about the ones you REALLY can't pin down!
3. Don't just give it away, though!! For instance, something like "[This fic] really sounds similar to a fic in Round 4." Never "I think [blank] wrote [blank]."
4. Inappropriate comments will be deleted. My apologies in advance if that becomes necessary.

We want lots of guesses, so let's have some fun teasing each other with hints! Oh, and as a side note, if anybody's planning on doing guessing posts, let me know. If there's more than one person doing it, I'll put up the usual gathering spot post. :D

Hello, fellow Hikago fans! As you've probably seen, sign ups (DW and LJ) for round 14 of blind_go have arrived, and you guys know what that means: lots and lots of flailing, starting now! For anyone new to our challenge here, this is the place we come to chat, flail, cry, procrastinate, plot, ask and answer questions, and support each other.

Anonymouse is encouraged for writers, especially if there could be clues to your fic, but obviously isn't required, and comments will be screened during the guessing period just in case. Participants also often use their blind_go ID's once they get them, which adds a fun twist to things and you're certainly welcome to do that as well. ^_~

Writers: Complaints about lack of progress, procrastinating, requests for ideas, and more are all awesome.

Readers: You guys are more than welcome to participate too! Leave your reassurances, fanfic ideas, and helpful random spam here.

Go go Hikago! \o/

Edit: Comments should hopefully be unscreened now for posterity. If they're not, poke at me and I'll take are of it. :D

Fics are UP!~ We all know that guessing is hard, even though this is just a mini round. SO. I thought you guys might still want to do a hint post. :D This post is for dropping hints! How does this work?

1. All comments should be anonymous!! We're talking hints, after all!
2a. Authors - leave LITTLE hints as to what you wrote! (See the "hints" tag for previous rounds for examples if you need them) Don't forget to check out the directory to find out your author ID so you can sign your anon comments with it. The signing part is kind of important to the whole guessing thing. ^_~
2b. Guessers - leave little hints to the writers you think you know... OR ask questions about the ones you REALLY can't pin down!
3. Don't just give it away, though!! For instance, something like "[This fic] really sounds similar to a fic in Round 4." Never "I think [blank] wrote [blank]."
4. Inappropriate comments will be deleted. My apologies in advance if that becomes necessary.

We want lots of guesses, so let's have some fun teasing each other with hints!

(Side note: Because of the quick nature of the mini-round, I'm not sure if anybody was planning to do guessing prize posts- let me know if you do, and I'll put up a gathering post, okay? :D)
 
 
 
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay BG is back! Okay fine, it's a mini round, but still. Are you guys excited? I'm excited. I'm practically beside myself. :D Anyway, even though it's a short round, I figured we could still use our traditional support/chat thread. For anyone new to our challenge here, this is the place we come to flail, cry, procrastinate, plot, ask and answer questions, and support each other.

Anonymouse is encouraged, especially if there could be clues to your fic, but obviously isn't required. You could even make up your own ID just to use for this, if you wanted, especially since we're not getting ID's until posting. It could add a fun little twist to things, I guess. ^_~ Either way, comments will be screened during the guessing period just in case (er, assuming I remember to do it later XD).

Writers: Complaints about lack of progress, procrastinating, requests for ideas, and more are all awesome.

Readers: You guys are more than welcome to participate too! Leave your reassurances, fanfic ideas, distractions, and helpful random spam here.

Go go Hikago! \o/

EDIT: Comments should now be unscreened! Great round, you guys. :D

Any news on when round 14 is starting?

Hey guys! This isn't anything blind_go related, but I wanted to warn everyone about a nasty virus going around on LJ. You may or may not have seen it already. The virus involves hacked accounts posting youtube videos in places. It's presented either as a youtube link or an embed, and the video seems to be in Portuguese. [Edit: Apparently there's an English version too, but it's just as random. You'll know it when you see it.] DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK OR THE VIDEO. I've removed a couple from kifu_archive already, but if you see any, feel free to poke at me and I'll delete it as soon as I can.

Some more information here and here. I think this thing is attacking comms more than anything else, but be aware in your own journals too- everyone be safe!

Um yeah, pretty much what it says up there in the title.

So I know I'm totally new to Blind Go, and my FFNet archive has no Hikago at all, so to make things easier I'll leave my AO3 here (it's new): http://archiveofourown.org/users/dawntodusk/pseuds/dawntodusk

Yep, and guessing correctly wins you a drabble. Or longer. Unless you'd like a music playlist for a fic, or something else. Leave your prompts with your guesses if you'd like a drabble :)
