SASO 2017: Closing Announcement

Usually, this space is devoted to responding to your issues in talkback. We were diligently working on a response, but in the process of writing it, we realized a couple of things: first, we are exhausted, and second, the trust between us (the mods) and you (the participants) is now irreparably broken, and that is our fault.

For these reasons, we will not be running SASO next year.

SASO 2017: Talkback

Talkback


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 2017 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. Please kindly put "Talkback" in the subject line.

The mod team has already identified some things to improve or change for next year, and we’d like to ask for your help and feedback. Here's our current to-do list:

Clue


SASO 2017 is over, but this round is perpetually open to new fills (no new prompts).


Sometimes, all you need are a few little details to imagine something bigger. This round is inspired by a classic board game with a cast of colorful characters, but for SASO your only limits on "who", "where", and "with what" are what you can imagine (and the SASO fandom list, of course)!

This round closes on 5 August @ 7PM EDT. (Countdown Timer.)
