For anyone that participated last year, there was a slight incident where I accidentally revealed the creators along with the gifts.  I almost made the same mistake again this year.  I caught it just in time.  One mistake averted and a whole new one was made.  It really doesn't help anyone to post that the gifts are revealed if I don't post it in the correct community.

Fanworks

More importantly, should I remain loyal to Zulu time or should I switch?  I've been considering the pros and cons of Yankee time.

All the pinch hits and extensions came in fine. However I have found an assignment that did not meet the minimum word count.

Edit: Claimed

 The deadline has passed.  If I defaulted you by mistake then contact me ASAP.

Pinch hits will go out in a few hours. Expect them around 04:00 Zulu. Unless I find obvious placeholders there should only be two pinch hits.

There are only two days left until gifts are due.  Any requests for extensions must be made before the deadline.

The good news is that they has not yet been any defaults. The bad news is that there are still two pinch hits. Any recommendations on where else I can advertise them?

If requesting a group (a tag in the format of "Group: Character A & Character B") that means that you are requesting both characters.

Also, less than twenty-four hours left to sign-up.

Sign-Ups | Tagset | Letters

Post here if you have any issues. Once sign ups open I won't be making changes to the tagset unless tags wander or become unassociated.

Countdown till sign ups close.




Sign-ups will become visible on May 14 at 23:59 Zulu.

Edit: closing sign-ups for a moment to fix something

Edit2: Sign-ups reopened. The error is fixed but it cost the three sign-ups that were already there. I'm sorry, it was a mistake on my end.

 Comment with which you prefer:
1. Sign-ups visible for the entire duration of sign-ups
2. Sign-ups not visible until assignments go out
3. Sign-ups become visible part way through at a specific time

I want to do number three. If three is chosen I will add a specific date and time to the schedule for them to go visible.

 Nominations are now closed. There will be a clarification post in 24-36 hours.
[personal profile] pumpkinkingmod
Answer as many or as few as you want for how you think this round should be run.

1. What do you think the minimum word length should be?

2. Should crossovers be allowed to be nominated for groups?

3. Should non-canonical rule 63/genderbends/genderswaps of canonical male characters be allowed?

4. What should the max number of characters for group nominations be?

5. Should groups with either canonical male characters or non-canonical rule 63/genderbends/genderswaps of canonical male characters be allowed as long as there as at least one canon female character?

6. Should I get a new icon?

Edit: Oh no, I am so sorry about the accidental reveal. I got caught in traffic and was opening it by my phone and I misunderstood how the boxes were displayed on my phone.
