30 Hath

A Harry Potter Challenge-A-Day Fic Community

COMMUNITY CLOSING

Hey, everyone --

As I'm not someone who believes in keeping communities open when they're defunct, I've decided to close down 30_hath. Maybe I'll reopen it again if there's revived interest, but with such a dramatic lack of postings the past few months, I feel like this is the right thing to do.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated over the last year! I enjoyed running this comm. :)

Okay -- so this community is about to be a whole year old, and I'm very excited about that! On 1 September, 30_hath will have been open for twelve entire months!

Here's the thing -- at about this point of the month, I'd be pulling together a list of next month's prompts. But, let's be honest with ourselves. Participation has not just dropped off; it's gone comatose, with only a few blips on the radar to let me know it's still alive.

So here's what I want from you guys -- what can I do to pump things back up? Give me any sort of suggestion that you think will help encourage posting. I heart this comm, and I don't want to see it die!

Thanks!

At very long last, I'm pleased to announce that the winner of the Guilty Pleasure Contest is ...



eleganceofenvy with A Match Made in Heaven!

Your account has been credited with two months' paid time. Enjoy!

That said, I've decided against having a contest this month, for several reasons, one being that there really hasn't been enough participation in the last few, and another being that I'm too short on funds to be awarding prizes. So on the 31st, I'm going to let you post a story from any July theme that you didn't otherwise get to -- a lot went completely unused, which makes me sad, so here's a second chance.

Thanks, everyone!
