[Round 6: No vacancy]Official rules/FAQ/Page-A-Mod post is there for reference, but you know how it works by now. Be nice, no kink-shaming, this is not the place to have it out with people who are Wrong On The Internet, detailed lists of kinks in headers are good, no RPF except for historical figures. Link to your fills (complete or incomplete) on the Fill Post. NKMWA = No Kink Meme Warnings Apply; see rules post for details. Mods reserve the right to enforce reasonable standards of conduct even if they are incapable of explicitly enumerating every possible way someone could act like an asshat online.

Mods are 10littlebullets, scuttlebuggy, and enjolrassy. If you have a question or suggestion, or see a thread going pear-shaped faster than the Revolution of 1830, don't hesitate to get in touch: leave a comment on the Rules/Page-A-Mod post, or PM any of us, or email 10littlebullets at 96belowthewave@gmail.com.

The previous round's moratorium on E/R woobification/vilification prompts is no longer in effect, but back-and-forth grudge-prompting will still get frozen if it starts to escalate.

Note on spam filtering: At the moment, LiveJournal is marking all comments with links in them as spam and they are being sent to quarantine. If your comment is caught by the spam filter, a mod will unscreen it within 24 hours, but it won't show up in email notifications to meme subscribers. For this reason, anyone linking to a fill on AO3 is encouraged to post other identifying info (title, author if applicable, and story ID--the number portion of the URL) instead of a full link for the time being. Same goes for Tumblr and YouTube links if you want to avoid the spam filter: username, title if applicable, video/post ID. If linking to another site, you might be able to evade the spam filter by writing out the domain name and separating it from the rest of the URL, but no guarantees.

Check in at Round 7!

Hey, guys! As we edge ever closer to 5000 comments, I figure it's time to announce a challenge that will be taking place at the beginning of Round 7, as well as some minor housekeeping changes brought on by the fact that Les Mis is no longer the megafandom of the week, things have calmed down, and the kink meme doesn't need to be as tightly modded.

Boring stuff first:

- I'm going to try relaxing the spam filter so that 'suspicious' comments no longer get diverted into a spam trap for mod approval. This means you might see the occasional spam comment on the meme, and subscribers (especially those subscribed to previous rounds) will get a handful of spam comment notifications. It's obnoxious, but now that we're no longer getting a hundred junk comments a day, I hope it will be a fair tradeoff for not having to go through all the headaches associated with losing comments that have links in them.

Note there's no need to report spam comments; they land directly in the mods' inboxes, so we'll probably see them and delete them before we even see your comment letting us know about them.

- I'll probably be going through the rules to trim and simplify them, since as noted above, things have slowed down considerably and we no longer have to worry about things like prompt freezes.

And now, the announcement!

The first two pages of Round 7--in other words, the first 50 prompts--will be devoted to a Filth Fest Challenge. For those first 50 prompts, you're going to have to break out your hottest, dirtiest, kinkiest ideas, so that we kick off the round with a nice solid bank of prompts to spark the prurient imaginations of potential fillers. Make someone gurgle incoherently. Set someone's pants on fire with the need to write porn. Make Victor Hugo turn over ever faster in his grave--or even better, make Victor Hugo get an awkward boner somewhere in the afterlife.

Got a G-rated prompt that's burning a hole in your head when Round 7 kicks off? Save it for page 3... but if it's any consolation, Round 6 broke 50 prompts less than three days after it went up, and I have full faith in this fandom's ability to turn out filth pretty quickly when challenged.

Fine print: Until Round 7 hits 50 threads, prompts that aren't heavily focused on sex and/or kink will be quietly deleted and can be reposted after the challenge is over. This is necessarily a judgement call on the mods' part, but chances are that if you're trying, you're fine. Verbatim reposts from prior rounds will also be quietly deleted, although if your general idea happens to be similar to something that's gone before, that's fine. If you spam with a bunch of prompts in a row in an effort to get past 50, especially if they're similar or obviously low-effort, that will also get deleted.

OTOH, if you want to continue thinking up the hottest ideas you can after the challenge is over, or if you want to get an early start of it in Round 6, that is both allowed and encouraged. Also allowed and encouraged: comments and fills (glorious fills!) while the challenge is still running.

If something dear to your heart gets deleted, contact a mod and we can resuscitate it out of our comment notifications and send it back to you so you can repost it when the challenge is over.

And finally, no, I'm not gonna be making the obvious Fifty Shades of Grey joke. The porn on the kink meme is way better than 50SoG anyway.
