Authors have been revealed in the collection, bringing us through the last stage of this year's exchange! Thank you to everyone who participated and have been reading and commenting on the wonderful works that have created.

If you've not yet taken the time to thank the person who created your work(s) for you, be sure to do so. (Full disclosure: I personally have one I still need to read through, but it's just been a busy week and I will get to it and comment soon!)

There are definitely plans to bring this exchange back for another round next year - stay tuned here for more information starting around April 2015. In the meantime, we will use this space to post information on other exchanges (ones involving rarity - rare fandoms, rare characters, rare pairings - that are either m/m focused or allow for m/m works). If you come across any you'd like us to advertise, feel free to send us a message here on Dreamwidth and we'll get it posted to the comm.


Thank you again!

The collection has been revealed and gift notifications should be on their way out as the AO3 gets them processed. There are some definitely awesome fanworks that were created for this exchange, so we certainly encourage you to take a moment to check out what's all there!

Please also take a moment to thank your author/artist for what they've created. A number of people put in a fair amount of work putting these together, so we certainly want to make sure the effort is appreciation.

Authors/artists will be revealed in one week's time. Until then, authors and artists can comment on their work and it will show as 'anonymous' until the reveal, so you don't need to wait until then to respond to any comments on your work.

It's here! The deadline for works has passed and we've fared really well. There will be one pinch hit coming up in just a moment and we've given a couple brief extensions, but there shouldn't be any problems with revealing works in one week's time.

We're going to keep the collection open for posting of treats until Wednesday at 8pm PDT [Thursday 0300 UTC] so do feel free to continue posting those - there is no minimum/maximum word count on treat fics and sketches are perfectly acceptable for treat artwork.

The full list of requests is now visible. We're making this available for people who are interested in writing treats.

For those who aren't familiar, treats are extra works created based on prompts on top of the one work a participant can expect for participating in the challenge. You do not need to be a participant in the exchange to create treats. They should be posted to the main collection with a gift recipient. The collection will remain open for treats after the deadline - until 24 hours before the first reveal.

If you have any questions,please let us know!

After a couple of adjustments, assignments have been sent! We have no initial pinch hits, but should any come up, they will be posted in this community with details on how to claim them. NOTE: You do not have to be an official participant to pinch hit.

Remember that assignments are due on July 25, 2014 at 8:00pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time). There will be reminders here periodically as the date draws closer.

If any questions come up that aren't answered by the FAQ, please feel free to ask.

Sign ups for the exchange have closed. Thanks to everyone who has signed up to take part!

We'll be running the match generation program and depending on how well that goes, will be releasing assignments sometime within the next week. If, for some reason, we're unable to match someone's offers to what's requested, we'll be in touch to see if you're able to offer anything else that's been requested, but we're hopeful this shouldn't end up being the case.

We'll also be providing details for how pinch hits will run once we send out assignments.

More info as we have it!

Just a quick note/reminder that sign ups close in 4 days. If you haven't signed up yet and were planning on it, now is the time to do so. Also feel free to keep spreading the word right up until the deadline.

If you have signed up and want to see how your requests compare to what's offered, you can check the signup summary. Sign ups can be modified up until the sign up deadline of 8PM PDT on Friday, May 23rd.

[admin post] Admin Post: Signups are OPEN!

[personal profile] mm_rares_mods
Only a little earlier than originally scheduled, but signups are ready to go! Just go to the collection on the AO3 and click on the 'Sign Up' button.

You will need to submit 4-6 requests and 4-10 offers. Each request must be for a unique fandom and may include up to 10 pairings. Each offer must be for a unique fandom and can include up to 15 20 pairings. For offers, you may also check 'Any' if you're willing and able to create for any pairing listed under the fandom heading.

Check off the fandom on the list and then enter the pairings in the Relatonship box, comma separated. Tags much be entered exactly as they are in the tag set. If you click in the Relationship box, the Archive should populate a dropdown list so you can easily select your choices. Note: Some pairings may not show in the dropdown list, but if they're in the tag set, they are eligible. Just be sure to list the tag exactly as it appears in the tag set. (If you run into any problems with this, let us know and we'll investigate.) We have 528 pairings to choose from across 156 fandoms (including Crossover Fandom), so we're really looking forward to seeing what gets requested, offered, and matched.

Signups can be submitted and edited until the deadline of May 23rd at 8:00pm PDT.

If you have any questions, please ask them here or email us at mmrares.mods@gmail.com.

ETA: As a point of clarification, matching will only require that at least one pairing is in common between the offer and the request. So do feel free to request as many pairings as you have an interest in - it won't reduce your chances of matching by doing so.

Nominations to the tag set have closed (they stayed open for a few extra hours because I was unexpectedly away from the computer). There will be a review of some remaining nominations sometime in the next 12 hours or so and then we'll likely open sign-ups whenever everything is ready - so watch for an announcement here!
mm_rares_mods: (Default)
[personal profile] mm_rares_mods
Less than 3 days left for tag nominations - the tag set will close on Saturday, May 3rd at 8PM PDT. We're slated to open sign ups on Monday, but if the tags look to be ready to go earlier (which is likely since we've been checking nominations as they come in), sign ups may open before then. An announcement will be posted here and sign ups will still close on May 23rd regardless of when they open.

After a number of requests and discussions with prospective participants who are interested in offering and/or requesting fanart as part of the exchange, we have decided to allow the option in signups to do either or both. You will be able to specify what you're willing to produce and what your preferences are in terms of what you would like to receive - so both writers and artists are welcome to make offers.

It is our hope this will make for a more inclusive exchange and offer more opportunity for creating new fanworks for rare m/m pairings.

The FAQ has been updated to reflect this change.
