Welcome to the end! The challenge ends at midnight Sunday night (wherever you are), so when you're ready tally up your points and leave your points here. Let me know if it's your final total or if it's just to be added to your points from last week.

Go hard during this last day!

Post a comment with a rec to a podfic you've listened to during this challenge, check out other people's recs, try one you haven't listened to and leave feedback. Easy!

PS YOU CAN MAKE AS MANY RECS AS YOU WANT:D

Listen to a podfic rec'd in the comments and leave feedback for the reader, earn 10 points for each piece of feedback you leave

[personal profile] dodificus
So, this is the post where you check in with how you're doing so far and how many points you've accumulated and I get to gush all over you like the fool that I am:)

Personally, I've actually found doing postcard feedback much easier than I thought it would be, how about you guys?

There are currently 126 pages of podfic at AO3 that don't have a *single* comment. Not one. There are 20 posts on a page, so that's 2520 podfics that have been posted with not one single piece of feedback.

Your challenge is to sort by comments and listen to/leave feedback for podfic with no comments. Perhaps you may see a few that you've listened to already and it reminds you to leave a comment, either way, let's get that number down a little, yeah?

Successfully completing this challenge will earn you 5 points for each piece of feedback you leave

You can complete a mini challenge at any point throughout the 2 weeks and as many times as you like.


Let the challenge begin!

This is basically the same Intro post from last year with a few additions/changes

Just a short post giving you an idea what you can expect from the challenge and how it's going to work. This is also a great place to ask any questions and hopefully I'll have an answer for you:)


I think most podficcers are of the mind that any feedback is better than no feedback! So, while you might feel like you ought to write a multi-paragraph ode to someone's accent/style/technical genius, sometimes all you really have to say is that you enjoyed it. And that's ok!

Challenge yourself to leave some kind of feedback for every podfic that you listen to during the 2 weeks of the challenge and hopefully you'll be inspired by the mini challenges that pop up throughout to stretch your feedbacking skills even further.

If you're not sure what to say in your comments, check out [personal profile] klb's Podfic Feedback Toolbox: 5 ways to give great podfic feedback or hear it read aloud by [personal profile] knight_tracer. It has a nice variety of examples and is just generally an overall interesting post on feedback in podfic fandom.


Points

For each piece of feedback that you give we're scoring as follows:

Leave basic feedback: 3 points
Example: Great job, I had fun listening to this!

Leave feedback with specifics about what you enjoyed: 4 points
Example: It was a treat listening to this while I was out walking today. I could hear the affection for the characters in your voice, and I loved the song you added at the end.

Leave feedback with specifics about what you enjoyed PLUS rec it somewhere accessible to fandom at large: 5 points

Places you could rec: your personal journal/tumblr/blog or a public reccing space like [community profile] podficpool or [community profile] podfic_love

You can't give yourself points for the challenges + points from the regular points scale.

ie: If you're claiming points from any of the mini-challenges for a piece of feedback you can't *also* claim points for reccing (another 5 points). It's either/or.



For the purposes of this challenge, giving a kudos/liking does not count as giving feedback and wont be counted in the points system.


There will be a post one week in and then another at the end of the second week where you can log your points and mini challenges posted every few days to boost your points.

At the end of the 2 weeks points will be tallied up and we will see who has been the most awesome at letting podficcers know how much they're loved.

In conclusion: listen to the podfics you normally would, give feedback, get points, join in on the challenges if you so desire, most importantly: have fun! Also, the podfic you feedback *doesn't have to be ones you've listened to in the space of the 2 week challenge*, it can be a chance to catch up on your backlog.

This years challenge runs from April 7th (today) to April 20th (Not today)

For 2 weeks during April (07-20) I will be running the 3nd Annual Podfic Feedback Challenge.\o/The aim of which will be to encourage people to interact with and comment more on the podfic they listen to.

There will be mini challenges scattered throughout the 2 weeks with points to earn but you can ignore the challenges and just focus on your own regular listening + feedbacking and still participate and earn points. Or be inspired by the mini challenges and forget about the points side of things if it stresses you out:)

We had 24 participants last year, which was 10 more than the year before. Let's see if we can beat that! Help promote the challenge and get other people interested!

Thank you again to the delicious [personal profile] cybel for the promotional banner:)

Sadly, we've reached the end of the 2 week challenge. You can continue leaving feedback and collecting points until the end of Saturday (wherever you may be) and then come leave your points here.

Let me know if you're leaving your points in total or your points since the last check in

I'm excited to see how everyone has done:D
dodificus: (Yakkity Yak Yak)
[personal profile] dodificus
Sometimes it can be difficult to find new podfics, you *want* to try something new but it can be hard to know where to start.

Post a comment with a rec to a podfic you love and think is under-rated, check out other people's recs, try one you haven't listened to and leave feedback. Easy! Maybe the podfic you rec will even be one you discovered during the challenge!

Listen to a podfic rec'd in the comments and leave feedback for the reader, earn 10 points for each piece of feedback you leave
dodificus: (Yakkity Yak Yak)
[personal profile] dodificus
So, this is a place to check in and log all the points that you've collected in the first half of the challenge. And if you're not collecting points but are still participating, comment and let us know how you're going!

Remember not to double count your points, if you've participated in one of the mini challenges you can't *also* count those points in the regular points scoring system for that particular piece of feedback.

I have *loved* seeing the little bits of non-traditional feedback pop up over the place and see people getting excited because they've received audio/video feedback<3
dodificus: (Yakkity Yak Yak)
[personal profile] dodificus
Do you know what might be fun? Recording and posting an audio comment/review/rec of a podfic! Sometimes it's easier to ramble verbally about why you love something than to agonise over every word that you type out. Record something and post it in a comment, or link back to your journal, or the streaming site. And if you don't feel comfortable having your voice associated with your online identity then you could always email or PM the podficcer with the link!

You could be responding to a specific podfic or just about how a podficcer in general has affected you.

There are sites like soundcloud.com and tindeck.com that allow you to embed streaming audio.

Successfully completing this challenge will earn you 20 points for each piece of feedback you leave.

Yep, that's right 20 points. Having received 2 pieces of audio feedback in the past I know how powerful it can be and how it much thought and effort the feedbackers put into it. It will be worth every point<3

ETA: It's been suggested that it might be fun/interesting to open this up to all non-traditional forms of feedback. So as well as audio feedback you might be interested in trying feedback in the medium of video or art. Go wild with it and use your imagination!

Remember you don't have to participate in all (or any) of the mini challenges, just join in however/whenever you're comfortable.

It occurred to me that some people might misinterpret how to score points, so I'm just going to clarify and hope I haven't stuffed a bunch of you up:

You can't give yourself points for the challenges + points from the regular points scale.

ie: If you're claiming 5 points for being the first to comment (mini challenge 1) you can't *also* claim points for reccing (another 5 points). It's either/or.

Does that make sense? How many of you did I confuse by not clarifying this earlier?

Meantime: I'm loving see the # of pages of uncommented podfics shrink:D How's everyone going?
dodificus: (Yakkity Yak Yak)
[personal profile] dodificus
There are currently 115 pages of podfic at AO3 that don't have a *single* comment. Not one. There are 20 posts on a page, so that's 2300 podfics that have been posted with not one single piece of feedback.

Your challenge is to sort by comments and listen to/leave feedback for podfic with no comments. Perhaps you may see a few that you've listened to already and it reminds you to leave a comment, either way, let's get that number down a little, yeah?

Successfully completing this challenge will earn you 5 points for each piece of feedback you leave

You can complete a mini challenge at any point throughout the 2 weeks and as many times as you like.

Let me know how you go!

Guess what? It's Saturday the 11th where I am so I hereby officially declare the 2013 Podfic Feedback Challenge open for business!

Start keeping track of all the podfic that you feedback, along with the points that you earn and then log them at the official Points Post when it pops up next Saturday.

I'll be posting the first mini challenge (an opportunity for more points!) later today, so look out for that.

Thank you to everyone who has played along, who has cheerleaded, who has shared stories, who has had *fun*:) I hope it's been a positive experience for everyone.

I'm going to leave this final Points Post up for 48 hours and then I'll be announcing the winner, who can then choose someone from this handy list of volunteers to record them a prize. And of course, you still have time to add your name to the volunteer list if you're so inclined!

The last challenge of the month is going to be a little different. I'd love to hear about how you experienced the challenge and how you plan to implement the habits you (hopefully!) developed over the month in your regular fannish life. Do you have a new system or plan in place to make feedbacking easier? Any hints or tips to share with the rest of us? Parts of the challenge you hated, parts you loved?

Comment here and tell me all! 10 points for this one:)
