What To Do If You Have A Question About A DNW/Like/Etc.

Since it's come up a couple times, if you have a question for a recip, please let the mods know via either the mod support post or a PM. We'll figure out how to get in contact with them, and let you know your answer as soon as possible! It's much better than having a disappointed recip or gifter because of a misunderstanding or unasked question.

(Caveat to the above: Since this is not run on Ao3, we do not have the ability to send participants emails. Answers will therefore depend on how often the person checks their Dreamwidth/Twitter/LJ/Tumblr/etc messages and responds to them.)

All Requests By Fandom Summaries posted

As the title says, all of the request summaries have now been posted. You can access all of them in one place at this link, along with the requests by media type post.

The Ao3 collection already has 3 works, and we have even more fills in giftboxes on Dreamwidth, which is even better. :D We'll be back in September with the lonely giftbox list, so have fun filling! And if you have any questions, leave them on the mod support post.

Request Spreadsheet + Requests by Media Type

Here's a spreadsheet of all the requests by fandom.

The request posts with all requests by fandom will be up by the 20th.

All requests are also tagged by media type:

Fandom Giftbox 2017 - Opinion Post

Hi! As some of you know, the old mod had to step down, so there’s a new mod this year along with some old ones who helped last year and are back to help this year. Right now, we’d like to just get thoughts on the schedule for this year. We’ve obviously missed starting the same time as last year, but we don’t want to push things too much later and end up running into Trick or Treat, Yuletide, etc.

For reference, last year’s schedule is behind the cut. Read more... )

Ideally, I’d like to open sign-ups for this year no later than June 21, 2017, and keep them open until July 7. I realize that’s a little shorter than last years, and if that seems like a major problem for anyone, I’ll keep them open longer. If we do go with that, the schedule would look something like the following:

Sign Ups Open: Wednesday Morning, June 21st, 2017
Sign Ups Close: Friday Night (aiming at an exact time, 11:59 EST), July 7, 2017

Giftbox Posting Begins: Saturday, July 8, 2017
Giftbox Posting Finished: on or before Wednesday, July 12, 2017
Request Spreadsheet Finished: on or before Monday, July 17, 2017
Fandom Entries Up: on or before Thursday, July 20, 2017
AO3 Collection/Comments Open: on or before Friday, July 21, 2017

Needy Giftbox Requests Begin: Friday, September 1, 2017
AO3 Collection/DW Comments Revealed: Saturday, September 23, 2017

If this seems like too short a period of time to anyone, suggestions/comments are welcome! Reveals will be delayed if someone doesn’t have any gifts in their giftbox, but hopefully that will not be a problem. If you have any opinions/suggestions/comments about other parts of Fandom Giftbox, feel free to post them here as well. :) Thanks!

Fills!

Fellow mod created an awesome spreadsheet of all the fills on Dreamwidth and AO3. Find it here and share some commenting joy with our gifters!
Entry tags:

Works are Revealed!

Go forth and comment! I shall go to sleep and see you all in the morning.

Huge, huge thanks to the other three mods who helped out at various points during this process. I couldn't have done it without you!
Entry tags:

Reveals! - about 12 hours left to post fills

Every giftbox has at least one fill! In about twelve hours, I'm going to start revealing things. Now's the time to get in all your last minute fills!

ETA: I would prefer a software that actually just shows the time correct for the user viewing because I actually hate handing out my timezone data, but here you go, have a countdown:

Needy Giftbox list

Thank you to everyone who has posted fills so far! We're about 3 weeks away from reveals, and our aim is to have at least 2 fills for each giftbox. To do that we're going to need help from all of you.
 
Below is a list of giftboxes that don't have 2 fills yet and can do with more love, please consider filling them if you are able!
 
There's also a needy boxes spreadsheet (sheet 1 sorted by participant, sheet 2 sorted by fandom). We'll update both this list and the spreadsheet regularly as fills come in.
 
ETA (21 Sept): All giftboxes are filled, thank you everyone!

Real Life going to cause a minor delay

Despite my best efforts, I have not had time to collate all the needy requests and won't be able to until the weekend probably.

This date: Needy Giftbox Requests Begin: Thursday, September 1, 2016

has to be moved a few days. But it'll happen as fast as I can.

Remaining Fandom Posts

I confess I got caught up in work and overestimated how fast I could put these together. I'm still drafting the rest of the fandom posts and should have them up tomorrow or Wednesday night. Apologies.

Requests by Media Type

Just a note to let you know that all giftboxes are now tagged with their requested media types.

All Giftboxes are Posted!

Here's a spreadsheet of all the requests by fandom.

The request posts with all requests by fandom will be up by the 11th as originally planned.
