Rules

Important Dates

Sign ups: cards can be requested anytime before January 31
Round one: July 5, 2010 to January 31, 2011
Amnesty period: February 1, 2011 to July 1, 2011

Rules


1. Each bingo card is a randomized 5X5 grid filled with kiss prompts drawn from a master list. The goal is to make a bingo on your card. A bingo can be made as a line, blackout, X, or +. For more information see Points and Scoring.

2. Squares are marked off toward a bingo or an extra by filling the prompt within the square. For each square a new piece of fanwork (fic, art, vid, etc.) must be created.

3. You can submit any kind of fannish content: fics, art, vids, podics, picspams, rec lists, icons, mixes and so on. To keep the amount of work a fill takes consistent there are minimum requirements for a fill. They are as follows:
fic - 500 words
meta - 1000 words
art - medium sized
icons - set of 10
rec post - 10 recs
podfic - 500 word fic
picspam - 20 pics
vids - 30 seconds
mix - 10 songs

4. After completing your first bingo you may complete extras on your current card or request a new card. Extras cannot be completed until the bingo has been made and they do not count toward a bingo. For more information on extras see Points and Scoring.

5. You must complete at least one bingo on your card before requesting a new one.

6. Anything already publicly posted may not be used to fill a square for kiss bingo.

7. You can reuse any square on your card as many times as you want but each use must be a new piece of fic, art, etc. A fill cannot be used in more than one bingo or extra.

8. Fills can be posted where you see fit (your journal, communities, AO3, etc.). To receive a bingo, and the relevant points, you must post to the kiss bingo community. Your post to the community must include all relevant links. All links need to go to open posts (no locked/private entries/sites). For more information see Posting Template. We will only count points for what is posted to the comm before January 31.

9. By signing up for a card you are committing to fill at least one prompt by the end of the round. Since it's not an exchange challenge, there's no penalty for defaulting: ultimately, you need to fill just one square during the posting / amnesty periods to be eligible for the next round.

10. If you have not filled a prompt by January 31, 2011 you can still fill prompts during the amnesty period. Prompts filled during the amnesty period will not receive points.

11. All prompts are open to interpretation.

12. Look at the list of prompts the cards are made from before signing up and veto from one to three prompts/areas that you do not want to write about. If you need more than three prompts vetoed please contact the mods by PM or email (kissbingomod@gmail.com) and we will work with you to make sure you have a suitable card.

13. Your fanwork should have more than just a singular mention of the prompt. It should deal with it in some way. For example, if your prompt is "body: feet" that should be a significant factor in your fanwork, not just a passing mention. How you deal with a prompt is left at your discretion.

14. You are required to warn for any graphic images. The other warnings are left to your discretion, though we encourage you to warn as fully as possible. When in doubt, please err on the side of caution.

Prizes


There will be first, second, and third place winning slots. The winners will be determined by who has accrued the most points with their bingos. Prizes will be as follows:

Third place - 10 icons of whatever fandom/images the winner likes
Second place - 20 icons of whatever fandom/images the winner likes
First place - 30 icons of whatever fandom/images the winner likes

All Bingos - participation banner/icon
Blackouts - personalized banner/icon

There will also be arbitrary mod prizes that are, naturally, arbitrary, but those winners will each receive one wallpaper of whatever fandom/images they like.

Additionally there will be a submission post where you will be able to submit a commission offer to give something to the winners - fic, art, picspam, etc.

Signing Up for a Card

To sign up for a card please leave a comment in the sign up post. This will be the community where you will post your completed fills after you get your card.

Look at the list of prompts the cards are made from before signing up and veto from one to three prompts/areas that you do not want to write about. If you need more than three prompts vetoed please contact the mods by PM or email (kissbingomod@gmail.com) and we will work with you to make sure you have a suitable card.

Posting

Once you have completed a bingo you must post it to the community to receive points. Please do not post single fills to the community. Please follow the Posting Template.

You are required to warn for any graphic images. The other warnings are left to your discretion, though we encourage you to warn as fully as possible. When in doubt, please err on the side of caution.

Posting Template:

Please title your post, "BINGO: diagonal line" or "BINGO: blackout" or "EXTRA: postage stamp story" or "EXTRA: double line stories" or whatever combo it is that you are submitting for scoring. During the amnesty period all posts must be titled "AMNESTY: number and type of things made" (ex. AMNESTY: 2 Vids).

Then use this template for the body of the post:

Author: (your name here)
