How to sign up.

So, you find the sign-up form a tad confusing. Here are the instructions!

Quick Version: the 4 offers and requests are for when you want to offer/request different things in different mediums. All fanfic offers/requests should go into one singe offer/request, etc. We're using OR matching, so you only match on one tag (eg. Worldbuilding: Tentacle Monsters).

You are allowed 4 different offer and request units, all of which can have 2-15 tags (that aren't fandom or fanwork type) and 1-4 fanwork types. For example, if you want fanfic of Kiru, Maia, and Linguistics, but fanart of Maia, Vedero, and Csevet/Maia, then first fill in the form with
Fandom:
The Goblin Emperor - Katherine Addison

Characters:
Character: Kiru Athmaza
Character: Maia Drazhar
Worldbuilding: Linguistics

Additional Tags:
Fanfic

then press the Add another request? button, and fill in the second form with
Fandom:
The Goblin Emperor - Katherine Addison

Characters:
Character: Maia Drazhar
Character: Vedero Drazhin
Relationship: Csevet Aisava/Maia Drazhar

Additional Tags:
Fanart

and so on and so forth.

If you want to request more than 15 tags for a category (Fanfic, Fanart, Meta, Podfic), then you'll have to use two (or more!) requests for tags (as mentioned above) with the same category.

If you have questions, please ask them below.

(no subject)

Nominations have closed. The list of approved tags (all 74 of them!) can be found either on the tag set, or as a more readable, formatted list.

Now would be a good time to figure out what you want to request and offer, and familiarize yourself with the sign-up instructions. (Link goes to last year's post. The only thing different this year is that the maximums have increased.)

Please disregard everything AO3 says on the "nominate" page. Do NOT choose the canonical versions of whatever tag you're nominating. Tags are NOT restricted to characters only. Thank you.

You can nominate 8 tags in the "Character" slot. They don't necessarily have to be characters; they can also be relationships or worldbuilding.

Character: Maia Drazhar
Character: Csethiro Ceredin
Character: Lord Pashavar


Nominating relationships
If you wish to receive a Thing centering on a relationship between two or more characters, nominate the relationship with the format Relationship: Name 1 & Name 2 for platonic or familial relationships and Relationship: Name 1/Name 2 for romantic or sexual relationships. Please observe proper alphabetization with the character names. ("Athmaza" is not a surname, for example.) Some examples:
Relationship: Deret Beshelar/Cala Athmaza
Relationship: Deret Beshelar & Cala Athmaza
Relationship: Csevet Aisava/Original Male Tentacle Monster
Relationship: Csoru Drazharan & Vedero Drazhin

Nominating worldbuilding

UPDATE 2.7. – times added for gifts due and reveals

Coronation Ceremony is a thing that will happen again! Just like last year, the reveals are on the equinox. Once I've ironed out my autumn's schedule, I'll post time-and-date conversions and countdowns to every deadline.

Now, I can run the exchange all alone by myself, but I'd like to have someone to help with the tagset/nominations approving this year. I am also willing to do an apprenticeship-style thing where I take on a junior co-mod and show them how the behind-the-hood stuff works.

Nominations: 10.7. - 21.7. (20:00 EEST)
Countdown to start. In your time zone.
Countdown to end. In your time zone.

Feedback!

While the exchange was successful (everyone got two gifts!), I'd still like to get input to make it even better next year. Here's a list of things where I'd like your feedback, should you have any. Of course, I may have missed something, so feel free to tell me any other improvements you might want.

  • General impressions?
  • How was the stuff creation time? How about the other time intervals?
  • What did you enjoy? What did you think could be improved?
  • Any feedback on the sign-up sheet?
  • Did you like the separation of tags into Character, Relationship, and Worldbuilding?
  • Any other wishes for next year?
Entry tags:

Author reveals!

Reveals party is HERE.

Thank you to all participants! I'm honored to have organized an exchange with such wonderful participants.

Feedback post will be up soon.

As for the awards:
Best At Art: the person whose arts are in the permanon collection. I understand if you won't/can't claim the icon, but should you so desire, you can contact me privately here, on Imzy, or on Tumblr.
Best At Fic: Dragonsigma posted 4 fics!
Best At Words: Trismegistus's total word count is 7 593!
Best At Guesses: Dragonsigma/breezy had a whopping 60% success rate on non-art guesses!
Message me privately with a link to whatever icon you want a dinky crown and text on!
Entry tags:

Reveals!

WE ARE LIVE!

We have a whopping 32 works – that's over twice the amount of sign-ups! You rock. <3

The collection is closed for posting and open for reading and commenting. Please leave a nice comment on the works gifted to you, and anything else you have feels or opinions on.

Read HERE.

Reveals party is HERE. (I'm csathu.) There are time zones involved, so there will be partying ALL NIGHT LONG (and in all probability long into the morning). Join in at any moment! There will be no spoilers in the main chat. (Spoilerific discussion will be on the secondary channel; instructions on how to join will be given to anyone who desires.)

The deadline has passed – no pinch hits, community challenge time!

All of you lovely participants have completed your assignments on time, and thus we have no pinch hits. Yay us!

What we do have, however, is a community challenge: let's see if we can make it so that everyone has at least two things in the collection for them come reveals! Here's a list of people who only have one thing at the moment:

Everyone has at least two things waiting!

Additionally, I'll be 'shopping icons for people:
The person who has contributed the most art works will have an icon of their choice decorated with a crown and the text "Best At Art".
The person who has contributed the most fics will have an icon of their choice decorated with a crown and the text "Best At Fic".
The person who has contributed the largest cumulative wordcount will have an icon of their choice decorated with a crown and the text "Best At Words".
The person who correctly guesses the creator on the largest % of works they didn't make or beta will have an icon of their choice decorated with a crown and the text "Best At Guesses".

On reveals day, there will be an informal reveals party in the chatroom. I hope all of you can attend! *flicks ears happily*

24h left!

Y'all have exactly 24 hours to complete your gift.

Assignments are due Thursday 15 September, 18:00 GMT. Before that time, please post your assignment by going to your assignments page on AO3 (https://archiveofourown.org/users/YOURUSERNAMEHERE/assignments) and pressing the "Fulfill" button under/to the right of your Coronation Ceremony 2016 assignment.

Treats (extra things) are encouraged! One may post treats, regardless of length, into the collection by following this link and then typing in one's treatee's username (please don't typo). Treats don't need to fulfill the minimum creation requirements.

After the deadline has passed, any potential pinch hits will be posted here, as will information on the coming community challenge, reveals party, and guess the author challenge.

5 days left!

In 5 days and just under an hour (15.9. 18:00 GMT), assignments are due. Make sure to finish yours now!

Letters Post

Now, with sign-ups open, is a good time to start thinking about what one wants, and what suggestions one should give to one's assigned creator.

I, at least, prefer to have the optional details in a separate letter rather than the box AO3 provides. (It also makes treating easier.) I know that others feel the same way, too, so here is a post where you may link your letter.
