Posting period

I apologize for my total failure to put up any more reminders, but posting period does open today, as you may have seen with [personal profile] luzula and [personal profile] kalakirya's posts earlier. If you need hosting, please be sure to email your podfics to me if you have not done so already. If you are supplying your own hosting, feel free to go ahead and make a post to this community at any time this week until March 16. Once your podfics are posted here, you are quite welcome to post them elsewhere, such as [community profile] amplificathon or Archive of Our Own.

(Since I was lax in putting up reminders, I'd be happy to provide any extensions to people who need them. Just comment to this post or send me a PM letting me know how long you need so I know when to put up a masterlist.)
