Hi doers of darkness, we made an error when trying to reveal the challenge and accidentally made the challenge revealed & unanonymous and can not revert the challenge back to anonymous though we tried to change the collection setting. We apologize immensely for the error!

Hello doers of darkness, Kaleidoscope and Kaleidoscope Treats 2012 are live! We made an error and creators are revealed early (anonymity since restored), but this year, we have about 56 fanworks from about 43 participants, including those who signed up for Kaleidoscope and submitted fanwork(s), those who created fanworks for Kaleidoscope Treats and those who pinch-hit for us. ) We are incredibly grateful for your work, doers of darkness!

When we finalized the schedule for Kaleidoscope this year, we chose October 26 as the date for Kaleidoscope to go live because your dear moderators thought it was Diwali. Unfortunately, your moderators made a mistake: Diwali is 13 November this year. However, Kaleidoscope 2012 Go Live is still dedicated to Diwali so happy early दीपावली, தீபாவளி, तिहार, दिवाली, દિવાળી, दिवाळी, ದೀಪಾವಳಿ, धाकली दिवाळी, ദീപാവലി, ଦୀପାବଳୀ, ਦਿਵਾਲੀ, దీపావళి, دیوالی and Diwali!

Hello doers of darkness, we would like to apologize again that creators were revealed early and that anonymity was spoiled for most of us. As has been updated by [personal profile] dhobikikutti (thank you, [personal profile] dhobikikutti!), anonymity has been restored thanks to the AO3 team, but recipients will have received an email notification with their assigned participant's AO3 username attached and AO3 members who subscribed to a particular creator will have received a similar email notification. We are so sorry, doers of darkness.

However, with anonymity restored, many of us would like that anonymity to remain for those of us who still don't know some of the creators' identity so we ask everyone to try our best to keep ours and other participants' super secret identity a secret (to quote one participant). :) We appreciate your help and apologize for the inconveniences!

Not A Mod, but thought I would point out that the AO3 Kaleidoscope collection seems to have been restored to an anonymous state, so people who were thinking of posting about their status as authors should please hold on and let those of us who enjoy the guessing period make the most of this!

Honor system, people - if you know whose written what, please treat the information as a spoiler!
