Space Swap Poll

  • Nov. 25th, 2014 at 2:25 PM
We didn't really have a lot of success with the Space Fest, so I thought I'd check to see if the community was still interested in holding the exchange. I'm more than happy to coordinate it again as it was a lot of fun to see all the varied submissions last year!

If there's enough interest, this would be our likely schedule.

Nominations: November 28 - December 26
Fandom dispute and tag set creation: December 29(-ish)
Participant sign-ups: January 3 to February 7
Assignments: approximately February 10
Due date: April 12
Golive: approximately April 24
Reveals: May 1

Also, any suggestions you have to make the swap even better would be awesome. Here's a recap of the general rules
