The 2016 Survey: "What do you mean, 'when I'm ready'?"

May 5, 2016 will be the 24th anniversary of "Dark Knight," the Forever Knight series premiere. May 18, 2016 will be the 20th anniversary of "Last Knight," the Forever Knight series finale. If you want to play, 2016 will bring the 7th round of fkficfest/[community profile] fkficfest!

Should we play this year? If so, when? And how can the game be more fun and run more smoothly?

This poll is for community members only. (FK fans may join at any time!) This poll will close at 6:00 PM (Pacific Time) on Monday, February 29, 2016. (Final decisions remain with the moderator regardless of poll results.)

Please share your opinions, ideas and advice! Thank you very much!
