A few things...

Hi, everyone!

Morgan here. I just want to update you on a few things.

First, I had a report from one of our bingo players that her claim comment on LJ got marked as spam. My guess is it’s too many links in one comment, but others haven’t had a problem. So to hopefully get around whatever spam filter is involved I’m going to friend anyone on LJ who friends us, or who signs up on LJ. If you don’t want to friend back, that’s cool. We had a good reason for not setting this up as a regular community so this is just a workaround.

I will do the same on Dreamwidth just in case but since DW has more flexibility (and less draconian spam filters) I am recommending that you do not give this journal access to yours, just subscribe. And I’ll do the same.

All that said, feel free to email in your claims if you prefer. The whole point of this bingo thing is to be as easy and flexible as we can make it.

Second, if people keep signing up at this rate we are going to run out of cards! Which is kind of awesome. Of course I can and will make a new batch, but before I do, I wanted to give you guys a chance to join in. I need prompt ideas! Lots of them. Because it has to fit on a tiny square, prompts have to be short: no more than 3 words and no really long words. Leave a comment or email if you have any ideas.

And lastly - congratulations to those who already won their first bingo! I expected it to take longer. I always forget how awesome Sentinel fans are.

Bingo Signups post

Comment here to request a card to play Sentinel Bingo. You can also request a card by emailing (at) gmail dot com

Full details of how the challenge works are in our AO3 profile.

You can request only one card at a time, but if we send you a card you really can’t use, you may request a swap – ONCE. If you don’t like the second one, either, you’re stuck with it until you claim a bingo.

Here’s what we need to know when you comment or email:

  • Your name/pseud – whatever name you want on your winners’ graphic
  • Whether you want a Gen or Slash card (see the details on AO3 linked above for how this works)
  • Your email address if you want your card emailed to you. (If you don’t provide an email address we’ll reply to your comment instead.)


Once you receive your card, you can start creating whatever fanworks you like to fit the prompts.

Bingo Claims post

Comment here to claim your bingo wins for the 2018 challenge.

You can also claim by emailing (at) gmail dot com

When you comment or email, let us know:

  • The card you were assigned (post the link from your assignment email)
  • Whether you are claiming a line, a cross or a full card.
  • How you want your “prize” – by email or comment reply
  • And, of course, links to the fanworks that make up your bingo win (5 for a line or a cross, 25 for a full card).

Put your links in the format:

Prompt – type of fanwork – title – link

e.g. Prompt: Coming Home – Drabble – Coming Home – http://.....

If you have done anything special with your prompts, such as linked stories that have to be read in a particular order, include that after the links.

The mods will check your claim and send on your winners badge, or let you know what’s wrong if your claim isn’t valid. Give us a couple of days to do this, but do chase us if it takes too long; sometimes comment emails do get lost.
