I have a few small final tag issues.

Eline Carien, Pelim Felicita, Sandwalker Jannik - They became unassociated. Where do they go?

The following have wandered into Original Work: Richard Adams, Ruby Carter, Yaël. If these are you are knowledgeable about these characters then comment.

Anyone know about where The Author showing up in Portal came from?

All of these are optional and just for fun.  I wanted to try some more specific challenges, but kept a general one that anyone can participate in.

1. General Challenge – This year’s general challenge is to have at least one work for a third of all the requested fandoms.
2. Trick Challenge – For the trick challenge the goal is to create 100 gifts involving monsters. These can be traditional monsters, human monsters, monsters specific to the canon, and original monsters. You may include magic using humans as monsters if you feel it fits. Any gifts created for the Trick challenge should be tagged as ToT: Monster Mash
3. Treat Challenge – In honor of gaining a sibling exchange, the treat challenge is to create 100 gifts involving relationships. These can be romantic or platonic, healthy, unhealthy, between any gender combination. Any gifts created for the Treat challenge should be tagged as ToT: Chocolate Box.

While the Trick Challenge and the Treat Challenge were created with Tricks and Treats in mind they do not have to match. You can do a Trick that is also part of the Treat Challenge and vice versa.

There are two ways you can make your noms approval go faster:
-Disambiguate for me so that I don't have to. This is especially helpful on things like anything connected to comics, Star Wars, Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire, anything with multiple versions, any RPF, characters with short, common names. If you can think of how it could show up in another fandom then disambiguating is helpful.
-Provide info if it is a rarer fandom especially if it doesn't have it's own wiki in English, a comprehensive wikipedia page, a good characters section on TVtropes, or a good characters list on imdb.

Nominate

You can nominate six fandoms and six characters from each. Last year's eight and eight was a little too overwhelming for me.  Nominations will be open until Tuesday September 8, 23:59 Zulu time.

All traditional fandoms are eligible. RPF has a few special rules that you can read about in the faq. Fanworks as fandoms will be determined on a case by case basis.

Groups will not be accepted. 

If you want any specific fandom handled a certain way or differently from how I've listed then comment.

Signal boosting in order to find pinch hitters for one Outstanding and one New Pinch Hit for My Old Fandom gift exchange. Please spread the word, if have a journal or a tumblr account and you're willing to help us out, any help is heartily appreciated. ❤
First, some info: [community profile] myoldfandom is an ongoing fanfic & art exchange for old fandoms where canon has been closed for more than ten years. For the purposes of the 2016 round, that means there must have been no more new canon material produced after December 31. The gift exchange runs from April 1st to June 10th. The unclaimed pinch hits are due on June 16th, though. FAQs about the exchange at MyOldFandom AO3 collection
How to request the pinch hit: please comment here or here with your AO3 name The minimum length of the fanwork: fanfiction of 1,000 words The due date for the fanwork: June 16 Preview of the Pinch Hit requests: Outstanding Pinch Hit #1: Jake and the Fatman, Nash Bridges, Magnum PI, The Gangster Chronicles ) Pinch Hit #9: Coot Club, Dear Ladies, 100 Dalmatians, The Persuaders, Terrahawks )

The creators are now revealed. 

 

Sadly, this year’s community challenge was not successfully completed.  I do have to say that you all did a fabulous job in your attempt to accomplish.  There were a lot of extra gifts made.

 

There will be a few changes next year:

1.       I feel that 8 fandoms and 8 characters was a bit too much.  So we are going to try 6 and 6 next year.  I think that might be a bit closer to an ideal number for this exchange.

2.       The following fandoms are no longer allowed to be nominated and will be rejected: The Lord of the Rings – All Media Types, The Hobbit – All Media Types, TOLKIEN J. R. R. - Works & Related Fandoms.  I’m not saying you can’t nominate LoTR or the Hobbit, just that you can’t use all media types or group all of Tolkien’s works under one fandom.  You can give permission for your creator to draw on other versions in your requests.

3.       I am going to have to add to the rules.  Breaking these rules will result in a ban from the next round:

a.       Plagiarism

b.      Deleting the gift for your assigned recipient after the due date

 

On happier news, I now have a roof! Carpeting is coming next.

 

Next year’s community challenge has already been decided and it will be different from the past two. 

 

Please post all comments, criticisms and concerns on this post.

 

Nominations open September 1st.

Four of the pinch hitters haven't posted yet.  So opening is being delayed to 2359 Zulu.  The people who haven't had their official gift posted are: DreadlordTally, Pameluke, snack_size, taichara.  If the pinch hitters haven't posted by then I will consider opening only if all four have extra gifts that meet the minimum for gifts.

For the community challenge, I won't have time to update the sheet for awhile.  But you have until the reveals date to get those in.

It is past the due date.  If you didn't get your gift in on time then you have been defaulted.  All people that had their assigned giver default, and who gave a gift, have been sent to the pinch hit list even if they have an extra gift waiting for them.  Here are the pinch hits.

For extra treats I will leave the collection open indefinitely.  I will only count them for the community challenge up until creator reveals.  I will get the spreadsheet updated in about twenty-four hours.
