Round Six Posting Begins!
Sherlock JW B&W
It's finally that time! Posting now begins for Round Six. As I stated before, we will be posting 2 remixes a day until all of them are up. Remixes will remain anonymous until the reveals on Nov 4.

After the reveal, the remix collection for this community on AO3 is Sherlock Remix and the tag is "Sherlock Remix."

Please let us know if you have any questions, here or in email to sherlockremixmod@gmail.com.

If you like what you read, please let both authors (the remix author and the original) know! Hard work and thought have gone into these stories, and there's much here to enjoy.

Thanks for reading and taking part!

Posting Delay
Sherlock JW B&W
Hi Everyone,

Just an update: posting is supposed to start tomorrow, Friday October 21. This will be delayed by 2 days, however, as I'm currently the only mod in the country and I've had an unexpected situation arise that is going to prevent me from beginning posting on time. I apologize to everyone who has turned their stories in and was waiting to see them posted, but posting will begin on Sunday October 23. From there, we'll post 2 a day until they're all up and then 1 week later will be the unveiling.

Thank you for your patience!

Today's the Day!
Sherlock JW B&W
Remixes were due today (or yesterday in many parts of the world), October 14. There are still two people who haven't checked in or turned in their fic.

If you're not sure how, you can find that information here. If you need to get in touch with us because you haven't yet, please do so at sherlockremixmod@gmail.com.

Posting will begin on October 21, which is next Friday. This is an anonymous round, so please don't spill the beans until the reveal.

Remixes Due October 14!
Sherlock JW B&W
How are we all doing? Nearly done? Don't forget that your remixes are due October 14, and here are the instructions for sending them in.

Your finished remix must be at least 500 words, and should be beta read (and Britpicked, if necessary) before you submit it.

Please send your finished remix to sherlockremixmod@gmail.com as a Word file (.doc or .docx) with all HTML formatting indicated in the file: for example, indicate italics by putting in the coding (without the spaces) < i > italicized word < / i >.

Please use the following format to name your file: your name_remix_original author's name (for example, inniedarling_remix_katelear).

Within your file, you must include this heading (please do not delete any lines -- just say "none" or "N/A" as appropriate):

We will strip out all info on remix authors, betas, and Britpickers when we post the remixes anonymously. The info will be added back once reveals are made.

Please contact us at sherlockremixmod@gmail.com if you have any difficulties or questions. We'll be happy to answer and advise.

Looking forward to seeing your work!

Pinch hitter needed
SH remix

Hi, all.

We have need of a pinch hitter for a round six remix. If you're interested, contact the mods at sherlockremixmod@gmail.com, and we'll fill in the details.

Check in completed
SH remix
Thank you, everyone!

Mandatory check in closed on Saturday. We've sent out a call for pinch hits for those who did not respond.

We'll be sending out or posting the format for your completed and beta'd and britpicked remixes, which are due by October 14. Anonymous posting will begin a week later, on October 21.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the mods at sherlockremixmod@gmail.com, or by commenting here.

Hope you're enjoying this!

Remember to check in!
SH remix
Hi, players!

We're still waiting for four participants to comment for mandatory Round Six check in. If we don't hear from you by Saturday, September 17, we'll assume you're not going to finish and we'll assign a pinch-hit for your remix.

Looking forward to the stories coming out of this round!

Mandatory Check In Post
Sherlock JW B&amp;W
It's that time again! Time to let us know if you're going to make next month's deadline or not.

Just a reminder that if you can't make it, that's completely fine, but please please let us know as soon as you know you won't make it.

Please answer in the comments yes or no:

My remix will be finished and mailed to sherlockremixmod@gmail.com by October 14: yes/no

Everyone who has signed up as a remixer for this round must respond to this post by Saturday September 17. Otherwise, we will consider you dropped out and find a pinch hit replacement.

A post will go up in the next couple of weeks with instructions on how to submit your remix.

Good luck everyone, and if you have any questions or need to tell us something, email us or comment here.

Optional Check-In Time!
Sherlock JW B&amp;W
Well, everyone, how are you doing? Have you checked your remixee's fics yet? How's the writing going?

Here's your opportunity to check in with us and let us know about the triumphs and the difficulties, or even admit you haven't started yet and commiserate with the rest of us that haven't started yet, either.

Remember, this check-in is optional. You can use the format below if you choose, or you can come up with your own. Either way, we'd love to hear from you!

Assignments Out!
Sherlock JW B&amp;W
Assignments for round six have been sent out! Please make sure to respond to the email so that we know you've received your assignment.

Don't forget to check out the updated schedule and, as a reference, here are all the rules for the challenge.

We will make a post later about how to submit your completed remix, but it probably won't deviate much from the last round.

As always, comments, questions, etc can be directed to us via email or by commenting.

Have fun!
