Round 7 reaction post

Round 7 is officially over, and author names have been added to fics and tags.

We'd love your feedback on how this round went - what you liked, what you didn't like, what you'd like to see changed. You can also post in the comments about any general concerns or suggestions, about the process of remixing or being remixed, or whatever else you'd like. Comments are not screened, but if you'd like to get in touch with us privately, you can email the mods at remixthedrabble@gmail.com.

No poll this time, but here are a few general discussion topics to start things off:

Did you enjoy this round? What things did you like most? The least?

How was the timeframe for sign ups, and for writing? Was this round too long, too short, or just right?

How do you feel about non-reciprocal remixes? Do you like having the option of writing more than one remix?

Were the requirements for remixees too strict? Not strict enough? Would you like a specific list of qualifying fandoms, or for requirements (currently, five fics in a single fandom) to be raised/lowered?

Is the header information too detailed, or not detailed enough? Are there things you'd like to see added to/removed from the headers?

Do you like having remixes revealed in batches, with smaller index posts? Is there another way you'd like to see remixes go public?

How did you find the timeframe for the reveals? Did staggering posting over a handful of days make it easier to read more fics, or would you prefer all fics to be revealed simultaneously?

How do you feel about anonymous posting?

How do you find fic you'd like to read - tags, index posts, our delicious account?

What kind of rounds would you like to see happen in the future? Reciprocal and non-reciprocal rounds, strict 100-word drabble remixes, remixes of remixes, mashups, something else?

Is there anything else you'd like to see changed in future rounds? Suggestions for improvements? Anything you particularly liked or disliked?

Any comments or suggestions are more than welcomed!
