Signups are now closed and matching has been finalized. Congratulations everyone, because we almost doubled the number of participants this year from last year and no one needed to be contacted to add offers! A spreadsheet is in the process of being created, and it will be posted along with a beta post in the next few days.

If there are any issues with your assignment, please contact me at press.start.mod@gmail so that I can get onto them right away. If you would like to ask further details of your recipient, please also email me so that I can get the ball rolling on that. Please do not contact your recipient directly! This is my job and I am delighted to do it.

We also have some initial pinch hits. These are people who, after matching was complete, were unable to be matched either because no one offered what they were requesting or because by the time matching got around to them every possibility had already been assigned. Please look at the pinch hits carefully and see if you can create a work for one of these participants.

If you are interested in claiming a pinch hit, please comment below with your AO3 name and which pinch hit you are after. All comments are screened!

EDIT: We have a new pinch hit, number 6. Please look over it and see if you can claim it!

Pinch Hit #1: Postknight, Pokemon, The Sims, Mystic Messenger, Harvest Moon: Animal Parade, HuniePop - CLAIMED )

Pinch Hit #2: Akiba's Beat, Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, Atelier of Dusk Trilogy, Crossover Fandoms, Final Fantasy XIII series, Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Star Stealing Prince, Tokyo Xanadu, Ys - CLAIMED )

First up, congratulations! We not only beat our total from last year, but almost doubled it: 211 fandoms and 1311 characters/combos. Well done everyone!

ADMIRE THE TAGSET. The capslock compels you.

Now! For the next couple of days, until signups open at probably 6am on July 4, we review the tagset to make sure that everything is where it should be. If something is not where it should be (aka a character has migrated from one game to another, or we have something in the tag set that is either not released or is not a game) please let me know.

If your nominated game is sitting in "Uncategorized Fandoms" this is because there is no canonical AO3 tag for your game. (Yet.) I am not a wrangler and so can't put the games into the right section. If you are a wrangler and you would like to wrangle these tags for the exchange, let me know what information you need beforehand and I'll get it to you.

Finally, we have the spreadsheet for the achievements! For those who have not participated before, last year we had a little challenge where we tried to "achieve" certain achievements on a list, much like in many video games. Some of the achievements are pretty hardcore! Some of them are going to be achieved in the course of the game/exchange. There is also a secret one! If we ever achieve it, I will reveal it. As you can see though, I need your help to come up with more achievement names for the ones for the games. While looking at the tag set, if you come up with something clever, witty, silly, or all of the above, for an achievement name, let us know!

 Otherwise known as THE ARCHIVE IS REVEALED.

Please go forth, comment, and share the love! There is an achievement attached to every story getting a comment, which is completely doable. 

Treats can be posted indefinitely, and I will do up a post for any story that is posted after the date (but before creator reveals) to get more eyes on late treats.

Please feel free to comment with any achievements we've made that are not on our achievement spreadsheet!

Signup Countdown

Signups close in about a day and a half (though they might run a little over time). Your countdown is here! I will not be allowing anyone to sign up late once signups close, because I am very keen to start the matching process and give you all the maximum amount of time to create, so please keep that in mind!

Trophies

This year, we have achievement trophies! I'm in the process of compiling a list of possible trophies for us to achieve. You can read the list here! I am also taking suggestions as to additional achievement trophies. They can be serious, or they can be really silly. I personally would love more silly achievement trophies! If you want a trophy to exist for f/fpreg, or transdimensional selfcest, or time travel shenanigans, or AU shenanigans, now is your chance! You have until assignments go out to help me come up with more trophies. I will also take suggestions on what the current trophies should be called, and whether a trophy should be moved from one category to another.

Keep signing up, and I look forward to seeing what you all request!

EDIT: I'm in the process of adding trophies for games/series/etc. If your game of choice doesn't have a trophy, please suggest something to me in the comments! I am probably stuck for ideas.
