Kaleidoscope 2012: Discussions, Links and Recs

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!

If you've made a post about Kaleidoscope, discussing, linking and/or reccing your received Kaleidoscope fanworks and/or other Kaleidoscope fanworks, please link them here and we'll compile the links! Feel free to flail or start a thread in the comments as well!

Well, the 27th of October was Bakr-Eid (at least in India), so you know, Eid Mubarak!

I'm so sorry about the anonymity thing happening. I suppose you have already trying contacting AO3 support and asking if there is any way of changing things back?

Eid Mubarak! And thank you for making a post to the community to let everyone knows that anonymity has been restored!

We did contact AO3 support and I don't know if AO3 support/coders worked on restoring the anonymity (which thank you, AO3 team!) or if AO3 server was slow to catch up to collection settings, but I'm glad anonymity setting is back!

FYI, I live with someone involved in the technical side of the AO3, and I'm pretty sure one of the other tech people flicked the switch for us.

We just received official words from AO3 in answering our support request and a coder with database access did officially restored anonymity to the challenge which we can't thank them enough. :D
