Nominations have begun! The main nominations guide is HERE and a longer FAQ is HERE.

We are already seeing nominations that do not follow guidelines. Please make sure you use the CHARACTER field for characters and relationships only, and use the RELATIONSHIPS field for AU tags only. Tags entered in the wrong field may not be approved.

Please especially check our GUIDELINES for related fandoms and franchises.

Thank you, and we'll get to approving shortly!

Nominations are OPEN

NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN! Please go and nominate your fandoms, characters/relationships, and ideas for alternate universes!

The FAQ explains how to nominate and how you’ll use nominated tags in your sign-up. Check there first if you have a question, then please ask by email (AUex@fandom.exchange) or by comment if something’s not clear. Some nominations-specific tips:

You want to be as clear as possible what you mean with the AU - not just so the mods know what you mean, but so that someone coming along later is on the same page as you about what they’re requesting or offering.

Example:

A bit vague:
AU: Phoenix Doesn't Die (Marvel Comics)

Better:
AU: Jean Grey Is Not Killed By Xorn (Marvel Comics)

Why is this better? Clarity! There are multiple characters named Phoenix who have died multiple times. This way makes it clear which Phoenix you mean and what you want to change.

Your mods are fallible humans [or possibly a menagerie of small animals] who aren’t familiar with all canons. Please be around to answer questions if necessary, and please be willing to work with us to create tags that makes sense to most!

AND REMEMBER:


  • Fandom tags go in the “Fandom” field - see the FAQ for guidelines on the fandom tags for franchises

  • AU tags go in the “Relationship” field, always start with “AU:”, and include the fandom or an abbreviation at the end in brackets

  • Relationship tags, whether platonic or romantic, go in the “Character” field, always start with “Relationship:”, and include the fandom name or an abbreviation at the end in brackets

    • Romantic or sexual relationships are indicated by a slash, like Relationship: Benjamin Sisko/Kira Nerys (Star Trek Original Timeline)

    • Platonic relationships are indicated by a spaced ampersand, like Relationship: Harry & Luna & Neville (Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling)

  • Character tags go in the “Character” field, and may include the fandom name at the end in brackets if it’s a common name that could fit in several canons. [Matching is OR, so a character nominated by themselves may give rise to a work that is only about that character or has them as the only focus.]




Thank you.

EDIT: We will now be allowing you to request 20 AUs per fandom in the final sign up.

For all my life, ever since I was an orphan child living in abject poverty with my parents in a ten-bedroom house in Kenilworth, IL, it was my dream to manufacture bespoke pretentious assholes!

Unfortunately, after pouring three of my rich uncles' entire fortunes into it, I still found that there was no market for my quality assholes.

New Rule updates:
-All US Politics must stick to one thread.
-For a wide variety of reasons, no deliberate variant fonts, no emoji in thread titles. You can use them in the comment, but not in the title.

All the [community profile] fail_fandomanon Rules and Information (and Ban Requests): http://fail-fandomanon.dreamwidth.org/1076.html. The short version: no embeds, don't out people's real names, don't be that much of an asshole, body fluids are off topic, Mods reserve the right to freeze, screen, and delete the fuck out of stuff. FFA discussion covers a wide variety of topics and has a very flexible view of 'fandom' that includes politics, current events, and cooking techniques. FFA is a Choose NOT to Warn experience.

[personal profile] galfridian posting in [community profile] crossovering
Welcome to the Fourth Annual Crossovering exchange! Nominations begin on July 2.

We've implemented a few changes this year. You can read about those here or you can review the FAQ/rules. (Questions? Email us at crossoveringmods@gmail.com or comment here.)

2017 Schedule


Brainstorming: June 20 – July 1 (Go to the post.)
Nominations: July 2 – July 15
Signups: July 18 – July 27
Assignments sent: July 30
Assignments due: September 30
Final pinch hits due: October 6
Archive goes live: October 7
Authors revealed: October 14

Brainstorming

Jun. 20th, 2017 07:31 pm
galfridian: (Default)
[personal profile] galfridian posting in [community profile] crossovering
Nominations will run from July 2 through July 15. As a reminder, here's how nominations work and how they affect signups:
  • You may nominate up to 8 fandoms. At least for this year, we do not plan to change this maximum, since we've dropped the 2+ nominations requirement.

  • If a fandom you nominated has been rejected, it's likely because that fandom was nominated with a slightly different title. (More likely to happen with newer fandoms without canonical tags on AO3.) If you feel a fandom has been rejected in error, please let us know.

  • Signups require a minimum of 3 requests with a maximum of 10. For each one, you must request at least 2 fandoms and up to 10.

  • Signups require a minimum of 3 offers with a maximum of 10. For each one, you must offer at least 2 fandoms and up to 10.
When nominations begin, we will post more detailed instructions about how to nominate on AO3. (You can also review the FAQ.)

To pass the time until nominations: brainstorming post! Previously, participants used brainstorming posts to plan their nominations around the 2+ nominations requirement. But as of this year, that requirement no longer applies.

So instead, you can use this post to discuss which fandoms you plan to nominate, to share your ideas for crossovers, or to get suggestions for crossovers from other participants. You can also promote fandoms here, if you'd like.

Fic Corner Scribbler links

[personal profile] evil_plotbunny posting in [community profile] fic_corner
Sign-ups are open. The sign-up summary can be reached from the sidebar once at least 5 people have signed up.

Post or link your Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters here.
You'll want to list the following at a minimum:

your AO3 Name (especially if it's different from the name you're commenting with).
Fandom 1
Fandom 2
etc.
Link to your letter on or off LJ/DW

You can also post your entire letter in the comments.

A note on optional details
Optional details are optional, but participants may have very strong feelings about how they want their childhood fandoms to be handled. I ask that you also respect any squicks/strong feelings expressed in their letters.

That being said, your letter is not the place to ask for a character who wasn't nominated or a specific relationship, unless it's one of several options (or something like "I love everyone/Character X, so feel free to include them if you want"). Remember that your writer only signed up to write the characters listed and might not be prepared to write for other characters. Don't make your writer sad because they know they can't please you.

Fic Corner Sign-Ups are live.

Jun. 19th, 2017 09:42 pm
evil_plotbunny: (Default)
[personal profile] evil_plotbunny posting in [community profile] fic_corner
Sign-up on AO3. You will need an AO3 account, but their queue is down to less than a day. Please note that you must be logged in to sign-up. Sign-ups will close on June 28th

Fic Corner Tag Set.

Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters can be found here.

Requests

You must request at least three fandoms, and can request up to ten. You may request between 0 (any) and 10 characters. The exchange is set up to match ANY, not ALL to increase odds of matching. You may not be matched on ALL the characters you request.

By requesting Any, a participant is requesting Any characters on the fandom's nomination list. Do not be that person who requests Any in Fandom F, but writes about specifically wanting Character Z from Fandom F who wasn't nominated.

You may also request Any if you want fics focused on worldbuilding instead of a specific character(s).

Prompt URL: If you want to leave a Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letter for your writer, this is the place to do so.

Description: Optional details are optional, however, if you want to give your writer ideas, this is the place to do it, whether you write a letter or not.

Offers

You must offer a minimum of 3 fandoms, maximum of 10. You may offer up to 10 characters or offer Any.

The bucket list is enabled, so you can offer more than 10 fandoms, but any fandoms in the bucket list default to ANY characters, ANY ratings. More information about making a bucketlist offer (including a lovely diagram) can be found in the Yuletide sign-up instructions.

Don't forget to request/offer fandoms you want. If you're lukewarm about a fandom, don't request it or offer it. Chances are this will be the fandom you receive/are assigned.

Once at least five people have signed up, you'll be able to keep track of current request/offer numbers via the signup summary.

You may edit your sign up form until sign ups close on June 28th.

All assignments complete

Feedback follow-up

galfridian: (Default)
[personal profile] galfridian posting in [community profile] crossovering
We received some great feedback. You can view the results of the poll here. Based on your input, we'll implement the following changes for this year's exchange:
  • Requests will be visible throughout signups.

  • Fandoms no longer need 2+ nominations. We will approve all fandoms, except in cases of duplicates.

  • Although the majority voted to keep the traditional bucket requests/offers system, we're lowering the minimum number of fandoms per request/offer to two (2). You can still request up to six (6) fandoms per request and offer up to ten (10) fandoms per offer.

  • Participants may request and offer art.
    • Requirements for art: Traditional or digital piece created entirely by the artist. Cannot be drawn on lined paper. Minimum size of 500,000 pixels. Must include two (2) or more of the requested fandoms.

    • If an artist's submission fails to meet the guidelines, their recipient will be sent to the pinch hits list.

    • This means that the fic/art field will be required and that we'll match based on it.
  • The crossover/fusion field will now be required. We will match on this field, if we're able to do so.

  • We will include the characters field in signups. It will not be required, but we hope you'll use it to give your author more information about you preferences.
We know that not all of these changes will suit everyone, but we hope that overall they'll improve the exchange. If you have any questions or concerns, you can leave a comment here or you can email us at crossoveringmods@gmail.com.

The rules and FAQ will be updated to reflect these changes soon.

Schedule for this year's exchange:
Nominations: July 2 – July 15
Signups: July 18 – July 27
Assignments out: July 30
Assignments due: September 30
Pinch hits due: October 6
Archive live: October 7
Authors revealed: October 14
