Sign-ups close soon!

  • Mar. 16th, 2016 at 8:11 PM
Sign-ups will close afternoon GMT on Friday! Here's the link for those of you who haven't signed up yet. (As a reminder, if you signed up into the old collection, you will have to re-do your sign-up, this time with checkboxes for fanwork type!)

In the meanwhile, please check that your AO3 account is associated with an e-mail account that you read; we may have to contact you if you're unmatchable. If you can, look to see whether you could write for any additional fandoms or characters to minimize the delay – we're aiming to send out assignments by Monday, but if everything runs swimmingly, we might send them out earlier.

Oh, and recruit all your friends into the party!

Space Swap sign-ups are open (again)!

collection | letters post | tag set

The collection is open! (Thanks,[personal profile] morbane!) This time, you'll have ticky box options on requesting and offering different types of fanwork. I've also set the requests to be visible, so that people get to see who's requesting what, and alter their sign-up based on that information. People who signed up in the previous collection still have their prompts there, and can copy and paste to the new collection.

Current opinion leans toward pushing back all future deadlines by a week. Does anyone object?

New collection, not yet open

  • Mar. 4th, 2016 at 10:50 PM
Based on community feedback, we've decided to remake the collection. Say hello to the new collection!

Sign-ups are not yet open; we're currently sacrificing goats to AO3 in an attempt to get the fanwork type selection to work in a satisfying matter. It's not a subcollection of Space_Swap yet due to collection ownership sheanigans, but that should get sorted out soon.

In the meanwhile, do you think the current schedule for everything post-signups is still workable, or would you like for everything to be pushed back a week?

Fanwork Type Matching

  • Mar. 3rd, 2016 at 9:10 PM
Hey guys, Space mods here.
 
It has recently been brought to our attention that we have missed off the option to offer or request certain types of fanworks on the sign up sheet.
To be honest, we did not realise this was something that had been done in the past and thanks to those who brought it to our attention.
 
Now this leaves us at an impasse, there are two choices and we wanted to open this to the group.
1 - We leave it as it is. You make whatever you can and accept whatever the other person can make.
2 - We start the sign up period again with a new sign up sheet including the option to select fanworks. This would cause at least some delays in the schedule.
 
What do you guys think?

Sign-ups open 18:20 GMT!

collection | letters post | tag set

We'll be running this along typical exchange lines: participants will sign up with requests and offers, will be matched via AO3, and will receive an assignment. By signing up, participants agree to make a fannish creation for their assigned participant. In turn, someone will make a fannish creation for them.

When signing up, you will need to request at least 3 fandoms, and can request up to 8. You'll also need to offer at least 3 fandoms, and can offer up to 10. For each fandom, you can request for 1 to 4 nominated characters, or "any". For each fandom, you must offer to write 2 to 8 of the nominated characters. You can also offer 'any'.

Space Swap - Signups Open

  • Jan. 3rd, 2015 at 2:05 PM
Sign ups open from now to February 7, 2015


Please feel free to spread the word and promote the exchange. The more the merrier!


Requests, Offers, and Matching

You will need to request at least 3 fandoms, and can request up to 6. For each fandom, you can request up to 4 nominated characters. If you select 0, the person assigned to you may make something with any nominated character or general worldbuilding.

You'll also need to offer at least 3 fandoms, and can offer up to 10. For each fandom, you must offer to create for at least 2 of the nominated characters. You can also offer 'any'.

Matching will work on the following categories:
- fandom
- freeform (fanwork type)
- character
All fields are part of the tag set

You may select 'other' as a freeform but it cannot be the only option selected. Details about 'other' fanworks you are interested in receiving can be noted under optional details or in a 'Dear Spacer' letter*.

You may focus on one, some or all of the characters in your assignment - you are not required to incorporate all. A reminder that when choosing the option 'Any' means that you could potentially match to anything in that category.
