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. :)
