1) I've contacted DonorsChoose with questions and concerns on how this seems to be set up. I'll let you all know as soon as I get any clarification. I'm honestly not sure how much I can do, though, since I imagine this is coming directly from Adam's management and who knows how keen they'll be to change anything.
2) Please don't suggest any questions anywhere other than an official (as in: posted by me or someone I've asked to do it for me) brainstorming post. I can't go looking through three different posts for questions, and when we do brainstorm I need you guys to follow some rules this time - no joke suggestions and no more than a certain number of suggestions in any one comment, for instance - so it's not as much of a headache this time around. ETA: I'm waiting on hearing back from DC before starting any brainstorming, since depending on the format, brainstorming might not do any good.
3) Charity posts are to happen at this community. Many posts were made notifying people of this and instructing them on how to join. The information on how to join is also in the userinfo. There is a reason for this: the main community is now filled with people who were not members during the challenge. In order to join this community, you have to provide proof that you were a member during the challenge. Please conduct any charity business here.
4) If you join and don't PM me a link to a comment/post you made or a poll you participated in at ontd_ai before 10/29/09, you'll be rejected and I'm not writing to people to explain why or searching through old charity posts for their names anymore. Send me a link. Doesn't have to be charity related, just has to be in ontd_ai.
