The Owl Postmasters would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the massive delay in the fest. We are so thankful to you all for participating and joining us on this adventure!

We recognize there were obviously some issues with the fest schedule this year and we have already begun considering what measures and precautions need to be taken to ensure that it doesn't happen again in the future.

You have all been wonderfully patient and understanding and we can't thank you enough for being just overall fabulous about it!

Thank you for hanging in there with us and we hope that despite the complications, you will all join us again next time!

Dear [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Fest participants -
because you post your stories to AO3 when you submit them to us, and we reveal them later, when the story actually posts for the fest, the posting date and publication date of your fic are sometimes weeks apart.

Which means that the Drarry and Hary/Draco feeds do not catch your fic and you are missing out on possible readers.

In the past, when we posted the stories to AO3, we updated the publication date when the story was revealed. Now you have been posting the stories to AO3 yourself. Our mod id "Owl_Postmaster" does not have permission to edit your story. If you want your story to be in the Darry feeds, you need to update your publication date to the current date.

How to update the publication date )

Any questions? Please ask in comments or mail us. :)

Snapey, Errol, Hedwig and Romeo are very excited. Tomorrow, one of them will leave the Owlery for the first owl gift delivery. For all of December, there will be one owl out every day and deliver three gifts to the day's recipient. There will be 37+ owl runs, delivering more than 100 gifts.

[livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Winter Fest starts tomorrow!



When you have received your owl gifts, please give owl treats in form of comments. Our owls also love recs!

Dear [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost participants -
many of you have already confirmed that you received you assignment. ♥ We are still missing confirmations, though, from a couple of people.

If you have not already done so, please mail the mods ASAP at hdowlpostmods@gmail.com and confirm that you received you assignment.

[livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Fest depends upon participants reliably creating their assigned gifts, so that there will be three gifts for everyone, once we start posting in December. If you realise you cannot fulfil your assignment and have to drop out of [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Fest, please tell us now! We have pinch-hitters lined up, so if you have to drop out now, it's no problem. It only becomes a problem, if you disappear on us, come December. :)

After two night shifts, all 39 participants have been matched, and three gifts assigned for each participant. YOU GUYS!!!!!! Almost 120 gifts! It will be an epic gift-creating and gift-exchanging frenzy! :)



Which is to say: Assignments for the [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Fest have been sent out.

Please let us know that you received your gift assignment by September 7 at the latest.

If you have any problems with your gifts and/or giftees, mail us!

Dear [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Fest Participants -

Again, we need to take a short break in posting. Snapey, Errol, Hedwig and Romeo are all up in a flurry, frantically darting back and forth (as much as owls can dart back and forth), searching the Owlery for gifts and waiting longingly for more gifts to be delivered.

Sign-ups for the fest are now closed. Thank you, everybody, for offering to create so many wonderful gifts. ♥ And thank you, all who offered to pinch hit. We'll definitely come running to you beginning of December. :)

Kitty and me will not be able to do the matching of gift offers and gift wishes before Friday, thus we are

keeping Sign-ups for the 2015 [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Winter Fest open

After Thursday, September 3, we'll do the matching and send out the assignments. After that, sign-ups are still possible, though a bit more complicated. If you have any questions, concerns or anything else, contact us at hdowlpostmods@gmail.com.

[livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Winter Fest Starts Soon!


How Posting Will Work:
Each participant will have a special Owl Day when all their gifts will be posted. This means, three or more owls will be delivered each day. We will make good use of the lj-cut to not clutter your flist that likely is already chock-full of holiday posts. There will be owls, though ;).

Owl gifts are for their recipient foremost, but can of course be enjoyed by the entire community and fandom. All posts will be unflocked. Comments and recs make our owls very happy. ♥

If you want to promote the [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost Winter Fest, here's the code:



The Owlery is still waiting on quite a few of your gifts. Please make sure to have them delivered on the arranged dates for late delivery. Thank you!

Happy first Sunday of Advent and enjoy the fest -
