Hi, folks!

It's been announced already at our twitter and tumblr accounts, but yes, it's true! The DCBB will be running again in 2015! With so much new interest in the challenge thanks to Tumblr, I'll be putting together a quick newbie's guide that outlines the challenge from start to finish, but remember that you can always send an email to the mod account if you have questions!

With the 2014 Masterpost up, I can happily say that with 151 Big Bangs and 24 Mini Bangs, 2014 was the biggest DCBB so far! Here're some stats:

2014 -- 151 Big Bangs, 24 Mini Bangs
2013 -- 116 Big Bangs, 18 Mini Bangs
2012 -- 85 Big Bangs, 21 Mini Bangs
2011 -- 55 Big Bangs, 14 Mini Bangs
2010 -- 55 Big Bangs

And for a little added math, the lovely thevioletcaptain on Tumblr tallied up a rough total of the overall word count generated by the DCBB in the past five years!

2014 -- 7,350,270 words
2013 -- 5,881,717 words
2012 -- 4,049,434 words
2011 -- 2,200,665 words
2010 -- 2,134,122 words

... for an outstanding total of 21,616,208 words!

And so, onwards and upwards to 2015!

Hi everyone

Congrats to everyone who took part in this year's DCBB. There's been some amazing fic and art produced.

Unfortunately now that the challenge is over it is with a heavy heart that I'm announcing that I'm stepping down as a mod. I've been part of the mod team since the first year we ran this challenge back in 2010 and it's been so wonderful seeing this community develop and grow over the years.

Sadly RL has intervened and I just don't have the time to dedicate to this comm anymore.

I leave you in the very capable hands of dehavilland who has done a great job co-modding with me over the past couple of years.

Thanks for all the good times everyone.
