The Artist Housekeeping Post

To give our 2016 Pros BB artists a heads up on the way they'll be claiming their stories, here's an outline of the way we'll be proceeding with the art claims.

The artist claiming post will go up on Saturday, 9th July at 00:00 a.m. PDT. (That's Pacific Daylight Time.)

0000 Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on 9th July will be:-
0700 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
0800 British Summer Time (BST) for the UK cousins
0900 Central European Summer Time (CEST) for the European cousins.

(If you're not in any of those time zones, you can use the World Clock Time Zone Converter to determine the time in your location.)

The claiming post will contain all the story summaries, under a cut, and without the writers' names. The post will be screened, so your friendly mods will be the only ones to see all comments.

Artists should comment to the post, and include their first, second, third, and fourth choices for story claims.

Artists should also let us know whether they are willing to provide art for a second story. (This year we're lucky enough to have more artists than stories so we probably won't need anyone to do this, but it'd still be good to have the information, just in case :-)

The mods will do a first pass through the list, starting with the first comment, and assign each artist their first story. If your first choice has already been chosen, you will be assigned your second pick.

We chose this method to ensure:

• that every artist gets a reasonable shot of getting a first or second choice, and…

• that artists who claim early will get their story assigned early, so they can get to work on art as quickly as possible.

Please note that once you have claimed a story, you'll be getting the rough draft of that story, so you don't have to work just from the summary.

Let us know if you have any questions, either in the comments here or by emailing the mods at prosbigbangtwo@gmail.com. And huge thanks once again to our artists for volunteering their time and talent. :-)
