Back from last year, as it proved quite popular!

[personal profile] yue_ix suggested a cool way to rec things, so let's play a game:D

Leave a comment with a line (typed or pulled audio from the podfic) from one of your favourite podfics and then people get to guess what it is! Feel free to give clues or hints along the way. When they guess correctly I will add the link to this post which can be used as a rec.

1 point for leaving a comment with a line from a podfic. 5 points for being the first to correctly guess the associated podfic. 10 points for leaving a comment on a recc'd podfic

correct guesses under the cut )

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 more specific mini challenges 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. You can also check out commenting on podfic some meta by [personal profile] yue_ix and story love, body love, performance love by [personal profile] greedy_dancer.


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

Unless otherwise stated in the mini challenge 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.

This years mini challenges can be found here:

Mini Challenge 1: What's that podfic?

Mini Challenge 2: Grow a podfic tree!

Mini Challenge 3: Challenge Yourself

Mini Challenge 4: Commenting on works with no comments

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.

You can play without bothering about the points, they are just there for people who find competition motivating and fun:)

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 1st to April 15th

Thanks to [personal profile] kalakirya for basically rewriting this challenge for me<3

You see a comment on this post reccing a podfic that you like, or that you're curious about. You listen to (or remember) that podfic, and leave feedback. Then you comment on the rec with a rec of your own. And so the tree grows.

I’ll leave the first rec and then y’all can go for your lives.

5 points for each rec (which implies that you have left feedback for the recc’d podfic your rec is in response to)

You still get all associated points with any feedback you give as a consequence to these recs

What do *you* want to do to challenge yourself in the next two weeks? Leave a comment with your challenge and I will let you know how many points you will get if you are successful. You can do as many personal challenges as you would like:)

Point range:

10 points = Yeah, unless you drop dead I have full confidence that this is achievable
20 points = It will be an effort but you can do it!
30 points = Ok, this will be interesting
40 points = Woah, slow your roll, are you *sure* you can do that?

Examples of personal challenges might be:
Commenting on all of *insert podficcer here* podfics
Making sure I’ve left comments on all the podfic I have in iTunes
Making *insert number here* themed rec posts
Commenting on all of the podfic in the kittens tag that have no comments

My fave challenge and a mainstay of the Podfic Feedback Challenge.

There are currently 154 pages of podfic at AO3 that don't have a *single* comment. Not one. There are 20 posts on a page, so that's 3067 podfics that have been posted with not one single piece of textual 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

Day 2 and it's down to 3063 uncommented works
Day 3 and it's down to 3061
Day 4 and it's up to 3062:O
Day 5 and it's down to 3048\o/
Day 6 and it's down to 3043
Day 7 and it's down to 3039
Day 8 and it's down to 3026
Day 9 and it's down to 3013
Day 10 and it's up to 3024 noooooooooo
Day 11 and it's down to 3019
Day 12 and it's down to 3015
Day 13 and it's down to 3007
