The LiveJournal-based 2006 round allowed sitcoms -- defined as any half-hour comedy, including animated series -- to be nominated before the start of the challenge. Participants then requested up to four stories, including at least one crossover, that they would like to receive. As per ficathons in general, the participants were matched up with writers who could write in those fandoms, and assignments were sent out. Masterlist of Sitcomathon 2006 fic.
In 2014, the challenge migrated to AO3 and was run again in memory of original founder Sabine. It was moderated by Kyra Cullinan, blithers and Annakovsky. Eligible fandoms were live or animated half hour comedies which had aired within the past year and had a demonstrated level of fannish interest.
This multifandom challenge tapped into some rarer fanfiction genres, as fic based on sitcoms is in general less common than fic based on dramas, sci-fi, or other genres.
