EDIT: Mod should learn to look at the right window.
EDIT: Thanks to our pinch hitters! That should be everyone, so now it's time to catch those typos, obsess over the title, and maybe contribute a treat. (Treats don't have to fulfil the minimum gift requirements.)

Thank you to everyone who's gotten their gift posted. 23 works have successfully been posted to the Space Swap collection. Yay!!

We did have a couple people in need of a short extension and I've just sent an email out to a handful of folks we've not heard from. We may have some more pinch hit opportunities come midnight, so stay tuned!

We do want to give pinch hitters at least a week to create something, so the reveals may be pushed back just a tad.
We'll keep you updated.

See below for details on pinch hit #5. Comments are screened.

Hello Spacers!

We have another pinch hit opportunity! See below.

If those fandoms don't tickle your fancy, we still haven't had takers for pinch hit #2 . If you're not able to pinch hit, we would also appreciate signal boosts. The more the merrier! :D
The deadline for pinch hits is April 26th.

Just a brief note that, as is common in such exchanges, we will not seek pinch hitters for those recipients who also defaulted. If you have any questions about this, please let us know.
