3 Weeks To Go  
Or two weeks and six days, rather. The countdown is still visible here. All pinch hits are currently claimed, but the pinch hit list is always open for volunteers, as is the beta reader list. And do not forget to double- (or triple-)check your Dear Creator letters to make certain they are unlocked and readable. ... In short, same song and dance as before, but keep those tap shoes tapping. :-)

4 Weeks To Go  
Technically, three weeks and six days to go. As [personal profile] withinadream noted, there is a countdown you can observe here. My apologies for missing it by a day. All pinch hits are currently claimed, but the pinch hit list is still open, and there is always a need for beta readers. Please also double-check your Dear Creator letters to make certain they are unlocked and readable.

 There are five weeks left until works are due (countdown here). There are no outstanding pinch hits, but subscribe to the pinch hit list/keep your eye on the comm if you're looking to claim any that come up! You can also sign up to beta. If you haven't unlocked or updated a Dear Creator letter, this is a good time to do so!

2017 Pinch Hit List  
Okay, make that two important things to remember: There are certain to be pinch hits for any exchange, so, if you'd be interested in doing that, make sure you subscribe to the pinch hit list (it's a Google Group) and keep your eyes peeled for anything we send down that pipe.

2017 Beta List  
As we prep for assignments to go out, there is one important thing to remember: More often than not, a writer needs a beta! If you'd like to offer your services as a beta, just copy-paste the stuff in the white box below, then answer the questions it poses in a comment to this post.

Sign-Ups – Eight-Hour Warning  
As promised, this is your last reminder: Sign-ups will be ending today, in about eight hours, at 6 PM EDT (10 PM GMT). This is your last chance to sign up for this challenge, but there is still just a little time left for you to join in the femslash. For details, please refer to the original sign-up post. Leave no femslash behind!

Sign-Ups – One-Day Warning  
Almost time to ring the gong again! But we're not quite there yet. You've still got about twenty-four hours to sign up for this challenge before sign-ups close at 6 PM EDT (10 PM GMT) tomorrow (Wednesday, August 23). Details for signing up are still located at this post if you have any questions about how anything works for this step in the process.

If you haven't signed up, you've still got time. I'll be back tomorrow to give you all one last reminder before time is well and truly up. Until then, it's not too late!

Dear Creator Letters  
Sign ups are open, which means it's time for Dear Creator letters.

Make sure to include your AO3 username, fandoms and pairings as well as the link.

Please wait until after you have completed/unlocked your letter post, if need be, before commenting here.

You can include additional pairings in your letter if you have more than six pairings you like in a fandom. But please take care to make sure they are clearly optional and include more information about the pairings that are actually in your sign up so your creator doesn't feel bad about being unable to write a pairing if they matched with you on something else.

Please also be respectful of other participants if they have different preferences in fic and requests to you.
 
 
13 August 2017 @ 07:35 pm
Sign Ups are open!  
*drumroll* We're a little early again, but sign ups are now open at the 2017 AO3 Collection.

They will remain open until 6PM EDT August 23 2017 (Countdown Clock)

You must be logged into an AO3 account to sign up. Remember you can shoot us an email at femslashexmod@gmail.com and we can help you out with an invitation if you do not already have an account.

Don't forget to check out the small fandoms post for ideas and to promote your favourite fandoms.

Go over the rules one more time before starting your sign up. A quick reminder of the important points:

Requests
  • You may request four to six fandoms from the list of nominated fandoms.

  • For each request, do not forget that you can request art, fic, or both.

  • For each fandom you must request one to six pairings from the list of nominated pairings. If you choose to request any pairing, double-check the list of nominated pairings for that fandom and make certain that any of the pairings listed are all right by you.

  • Your match will be based on fandom, pairing, and format (i.e. fic or art).

  • While the description section is optional, we strongly suggest you include Do Not Wants. Any DNWs/triggers included in the description will be enforced by the mods, however all other details will be optional for your writer or artist. You can also include a link to a Dear Creator letter if you would like to provide more information.

Offers
  • You may offer four to ten fandoms from the list of nominated fandoms.

  • Each fandom you offer must have one to ten pairings from the list of nominated pairings. If you choose to offer any pairing, double-check the list of nominated pairings for that fandom and make certain that any of the pairings listed are all right by you.

  • Again, as for requests, you can offer art, fic, or both.

Don't forget...
  • Check the Uncategorised and the No Media sections of the tag set for extra fandoms, crossovers, and original work tags.

  • Occasionally, after you select a fandom, pairings you want might not appear in the drop-down menu despite already being in the tag set. If that happens, please copy and paste the pairing you want from the tag set, but remember that you need to get it exactly the same.

  • You may edit your sign up as much as you like between now and the close of sign-ups.

  • Please read over your sign-ups one last time before they close. After all, what if you ticked the wrong box?

  • If you write a Dear Creator letter, you can share them at our letters post!

  • Your assignment will need to be completed and posted by 6PM EDT on October 7. Please consider carefully whether you will be able to commit to that deadline before signing up.

Keep an eye out for the new how-to post coming over the next few days if you're new to exchanges, or drop us a comment if you have any questions.

Small Fandoms!  
Nominations are closed, the queue has been emptied and corrections have been made (if you spot any ongoing issues, your nomination hasn't appeared in the tagset, you have an opinion on the remaining unclarified Wonder Woman crossover pairings or other issues raised previously, please head over to the last wrangling post and let us know), and now we're just waiting for sign-ups to start.

So it's the perfect time to pitch your small fandoms and rare pairs to everyone!

Tell us why you love it, show us pretty pictures of your favs, link us to the canon (legal options only please), and make your best case for why someone should consider adding your fandom to their requests or offers list.

To make it easy to browse, please put the name of your fandom and/or pairing in the subject line of your comment if you're posting on Dreamwidth. If you're on Tumblr, make sure to use the femslashex tag!

And a reminder if you want to make sure you're ready for sign-ups opening but you don't have an AO3 account yet, shoot us an email at femslashexmod@gmail.com and we can help you out with an invitation.

Nominations Are Closed  
Okay, let me take a step back, wind up, aaand — !

*GONG*

Whew. There we go. Got it. That's it for nominations, folks. Barring any weirdness, sign-ups should be open in three days, on Sunday, August 13. During the next three days, the tag set is going to undergo its final set of tweaks before we get sign-ups moving, so feel free to keep browsing it and let us know if there's weird stuff in there that we've missed. (Or just keep browsing it to bask in all the potential femslash. That's fine, too!)

Nominations – One-Day Warning  
It's not time to sound the gong just yet, but it is time to pick up the mallet and start taking my practice swings. Nominations close tomorrow (Thursday, August 10) at 6 PM EDT (10 PM GMT). You still have plenty of time to nominate your femslash. Thank you all for your assistance thus far in keeping our tag set cleaned up as nominations progress, and please feel free to let us know here if you have any comments, concerns, questions, etc.
