Hey everyone!

So I know it’s only been a couple days since the monthly announcement, but we have some exciting news~ We are very pleased to announce two new moderators: Kumi and Ruby Spice! Congratulations to you both~!

Now that evaluation of moderator applications is done with, we mods are now able to focus on getting the number of stories in the queue down. However, as usual, to give our two new modlings time to learn how to queue-nom, we will be closing the queue.

Now, for the next month or so, please don't ask them about stories in the queue. They have been instructed to ignore such emails while they’re learning how to be mods. If you need to ask about the status of a story, refer your questions to Kerrigan Sheehan, Penguiduck, perfect-to-stay, dark_wing19, or myself. You also have the option of posting in the story validation forum thread. Repeatedly poking the new mods may result in a temporary ban. (So don’t do it!) (Though sending them congrats is fine, of course!)

Also, if you have any concerns or questions about our decision on the new mods, please email one of the older mods (previously mentioned in the paragraph above) privately to discuss things.

That’s it for now, everyone! Have a wonderful rest of the month~♥

 

Et tu, Brute?—Then fall, Caesar!

Happy July, everyone! (And happy birthday, Cana—) (“Yo guys! My birthday is in 3 days!!” America interrupts, shouting excitedly.) What’s a Hetalia reference.

A-Anyway! Hahaha. This month’s theme is Chaptered Stories!

Give Your Heart A Break by SacredTear (Rune Factory, 17+)
Shades of Bizarre by lilforgetsalot (Marvel Comics/The Avengers, 13+)
Shattered Symphony by Penguiduck (Be My Princess, 13+)
Snapshots by Akira Mokona (Hetalia, 13+)
Words Whisper, Actions Scream by Shade (Pokemon, 17+)

Congratulations to all of you~ Now, in contrast to this month’s theme, next month’s theme will be One-Shots! Specifically, one-shots 1,000 words or longer. You can nominate here on the forums!

And now an important reminder from your mods!

It’s extremely important that you have a valid email address associated with your Lunaescence account and that you check that email regularly. This is the only way we mods have to contact you in case of any problems. If there is another email address you check more frequently than the one associated with Luna, you can have emails forwarded automatically. Click here for instructions for Yahoo!, here for Gmail, or here for Microsoft/Hotmail/Live/Outlook.

That’s it for this month’s announcement~! For those of you in the northern hemisphere, I hope you’re enjoying the summer so far! And for those of you in the southern hemisphere, I hope you’re enjoying the cooler season~ (Winter is coming? lolol.) Have a great month, everyone! ♥

This month's theme is Summer Lovin’.

Crush by Phoenix (Hetalia, Adult)
Hello Baby by WolfWarrior (KHR!, 13+)
Summer Skin by DragonSilk (Yu-Gi-Oh, Adult)

Congratulations to the three of you. Next month's theme is Chaptered Stories. Any story that isn't a poem, poem collection, drabble book, or one-shot is eligible. You can nominate here on the forum.

Additionally, those who were nominated last month are keeping their blue ribbons through June because they got them abnormally late due to a moderator error. (“S-So sorry,” Alastair chimes in, crying tears of shame.)

Before we get to your monthly dose of reminders, there are a couple of notes about upcoming events. I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that there will be a queuelock some time this summer when we finish moderator applications. The good news is that there will almost certainly be new moderators. Now onto more good news. There's a possibility that one of the other moderators will be able to run a fic trade, but this hasn't been confirmed yet.

And now for that monthly dose of reminders...

Because it’s summer and we have a fair number of new and seasonal authors and have seen some confusion on the subject, we’d just like to remind everyone that we don’t actually look at the content of a story when we consider whether or not to validate it. We’re only looking at the grammar. In other words, a great story written with terrible grammar won't pass the queue.

That said, a lot of stories come through the queue, so if we see obvious problems like a multiple submission, a bad title (unnecessary special characters or pairing in the title), way more fandoms than chapters, or a bad rating, we will automatically deny it without looking at the content.

The currently active moderators are: Alastair, dark_wing19, DragonSilk, Kerrigan Sheehan, Penguiduck, and perfect-to-stay. You can contact us using the form on our profile pages or by emailing moderators[dot]luna[at]gmail[dot]com.

If you need a fandom added to the archive or a new character added to an existing fandom, the place to request that is this forum thread. Requests elsewhere are not likely to be seen. When making requests, please go to the last few pages of the thread and make sure that what you're requesting hasn't already been requested by someone else since the last post from a moderator stating that categories were added. We don't need three requests for the same fandom.

We’d also like to remind everyone that any on-screen sexual content in the story means that it needs to be rated either “Adult” or “Adult+.” We’ve been cracking down on 17+ lemons because we’ve seen a lot of them lately.

Indeed, we will be having a fic trade this summer! If you're interested in participating, pop on over here to sign up!
