AO3 support has been contacted about the authors failing to reveal.

[personal profile] shadow_lover will be the official Chief Goblin next year.

Neither community challenge, Challenge Yourself or Shopping List, were completed this year.  But you all got very close to completing Shopping List.  Shopping List was very ambitious and it didn't work out as planned, but I'm still glad that we tried it this year.  We won't be revisiting Shopping List unless I can find a way to make it far more manageable. Next year we will be playing a game of Battleship. 

If you have never played it before, here is a page about the game.  It will be done as the entire community trying to sink my ships.  The squares will operate like they did in Bingo.  I will be picking the difficulty roughly the same way as I did for Bingo.  You don't have to get the entire board to win, you just need to find where my hidden ships are and sink them.

For next year, if this bug hasn't been resolved, I will temporarily close the collection just during work and author reveals.  As soon as the reveals have gone through the collection will be reopened.

If you participated in Challenge Yourself and want to talk about how you challenged yourself then do so on this post.

I have selected the author reveals on AO3.  I will give it a few hours to see if it takes before contacting AO3.  A longer post will be coming in a few hours.

With [personal profile] pumpkinkingmod's permission, I've made this as a general recs-linking post: if you've posted recs on Dreamwidth, Tumblr, or anywhere else, link your recs post in the comments. If you want to make recs but don't have a place to do so, you can do that in the comments, too.

If your works aren't revealed then send me an email, but it looks like most of them have finally been revealed.  Thank you all for your patience.

Big thanks to thedevilchicken for force revealing some work and playing messenger for me when I had to step away from my computer.

Thanks to a participant, AO3 support had already been informed before I could send in a ticket and have contacted me.  They wanted to confirm I wasn't playing a trick on everyone and have offered to gentle caress the collection on their end.  I know some participants have had luck with adding their gift to an anonymous collection, removing it from ToT, then re-adding it to ToT.

Yes, I see the issue with the collection. Nothing has revealed. I am trying some mod tricks to make them reveal, but so far they aren’t working. 

Edit: it takes multiple tries but I can very slowly reveal works one by one. Please be patient.

Edit 2: AO3 has just started to reveal on its own. I am going to leave it be to see if it can get through everything on it’s own

The deadline has come and gone.  There were a small number of extensions and the people with outstanding claimed pinch hits have been emailed and have twenty-four hours to give me a status update.  There are new pinch hits.

Community Challenge Tracker - Here is a tracker for the community challenge.

Treatless Tracker - This tracks who has zero gifts or one gift.

I did not make either of these.  If something goes wrong I can do nothing about them.

Do you ever get that feeling of impeding doom?  It was just the sign-ups closing.

I am now starting matching.

I was asked to create a bingo card to help make it easier for the community to tackle this year’s challenge (which is 80% of the tagset that they nominated over here). I will create a new card upon request. Read more... )

There are two parts to the community challenge.

Part 1 – Challenge Yourself
This challenge is to see one hundred works where the creator challenged themselves to go outside their comfort zones and do something different. Maybe you are a fan of spy movies and you write a fic for an anime fandom? Maybe you are a drabble writer and you try writing long fic? Maybe you are an artist that tries a new style? How you challenge yourself is up to yourself. At reveals there will be a post where you can talk about how you challenged yourself.

If you create something for this challenge and you don’t feel comfortable gifting it to the participant that inspired it that is okay. You can gift it to the PumpkinKing account, leave it without a recipient, or instead put it in the author’s notes who inspired it. I won’t be policing to see if you adequately challenged yourself. If you feel that you challenged yourself then it counts.

Tag your works for this as “Trick or Treat: Challenge Yourself”

Part 2 – Shopping List
There were over twelve hundred nominations. I’m still not completely finished with adjusting the groups and making the nice, easy to reference list, there are some groups that I want to change and I’ll be compiling a list for the numbers for each category. But I wanted to get this out while people could still modify their sign-ups to include any mentions of these that might interest them. I admit that this didn’t go exactly as I planned.

There are currently 465 categories.

-No matter how many people nominated 2 gifts per person, that is only counted as a challenge once.
-Drabbles can only be used for extra gifts. Regular assignments must still hit the required word count
-I left the tags as nominated except for adding my notes about number and where they were initially grouped.
-For the items that say gifts for a certain number of fandoms in the tagset I will only count requested fandoms.
-Ones that say X number of a particular tag, such as "75 explicit works" will be treated as a +1 to explicit works.  I apologize for not being clearer in the instructions.

This challenge will be completed with 80% of the items are scratched off the list.

The community challenge isn't ready yet. Only being able to see thirty tags at a time slowed things done a touch.

If there are any issues contact me ASAP.
