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. Sign Ups Open: Sunday morning, June 5, 2016
Sign Ups Close: Friday morning, June 24, 2016

Giftbox Posting Begins: Sunday, June 26, 2016
Giftbox Posting Finished: on or before Thursday, June 30, 2016
Request Spreadsheet Finished: on or before Monday, July 4, 2016
Fandom Entries Up: on or before Monday, July 11, 2016
AO3 Collection/Comments Open: on or before Tuesday, July 12, 2016
Needy Giftbox Requests Begin: Thursday, September 1, 2016
AO3 Collection/DW Comments Revealed: Wednesday, September 21, 2016

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!

I think your proposed schedule looks great! It may be slightly shorter than last year, but it still provides a little over two weeks for signups and over two months for gift creation. I think that's plenty of time for an exchange like this.
