LOOKING FORWARD


Unfortunately, SWAG was a one-time-only deal; it will not be returning to our event schedule. However, we are moving IHX to become our winter event! It will probably run around January-February.

Thank you to those of you who came back for a repeat of this wild fandom ride. We hope you had fun again this year too. If you were new this year, we hope you had a good time!

The whole event, we mods couldn't help but gushing to each other over all the amazing fanwork we saw. You did an amazing job this year. Whether you made a hundred fanworks or just one, we know that you pushed outside your comfort zone and really did your best. You've helped to enrich and support your fandoms. We hope you're seriously proud of yourself, because we are seriously proud of you.

Congratulations!! Feel free to reply this post and party. We hope to see you again at SASO 2017!

Talkback


This post is closed; thank you for your feedback. If you would like to provide constructive criticism, please contact the mods directly. All further replies to this entry are screened.

The mods still plan to reply to the topics listed at the bottom of the post.

This is not the final wrap-up results/etc. post—that's coming in a couple of days. But while the mods tabulate final scores and create prize graphics, now's a good time to look back and reflect on your SASO 2016 experience.

Please leave comments giving us feedback on the event this year! What did you like? What did you dislike or find frustrating? What can we improve for next year, and how can we improve it? What was your favorite part of the event? Least favorite? Would you participate next year or not? Why? If you could mention your team when making your comment, we'd appreciate it.

If you would prefer to submit your comments in private, you can e-mail us at anime.espn@gmail.com or send us a Dreamwidth PM. We would prefer it if you'd put "Talkback" in the subject line.

Here's what the mod team plans to improve for next year:
  • Voting program reliability. We'd like to apologize again for all of the server dowtnime, and definitely plan to make it much more stable for next year. The voting system in general, though, will remain the same.

  • Bonus round program reliability. We think we got most of the kinks out during this year, but want to keep it stable for next year too.

  • Dreamwidth capability for NSFW cross-posting. We didn't have time to implement it this year, but next year it should be ready to go.

  • Clarifying the rules, especially on what "popular culture media" is acceptable to include in SASO work.
We also wanted to thank you again for being patient with us this year. We had a lot of technical hiccups, and you were all so kind while our heroic codermods worked out the kinks. We really appreciated your support.
