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?

It honestly went perfectly for me! I have almost no suggestions. Information was clear, the worldbuilding and character and relationship tags seemed to work fine, I had a lot of fun sorting my requests by media preference, and it was a good amount of writing/creation time. I wouldn't have wanted any longer.

I did wish I could have written more treats, but I always do.

I also got amazing gifts and lovely comments.

I guess it wasn't a perfect time of year for me, but it's always going to overlap something.

I think I'd prefer reveals to be near the start of a weekend rather than on a weekday, but it's not a deal breaker.

Yeah, probably! I was just a bit confused about why it was on the equinox at all, when Maia's coronation isn't and there doesn't seem to be another canon reason. But if you just like it that way, it's no skin off my nose.

Thanks again for running this!

Thank you for running the exchange, Extrapenguin! You did great!

I was faintly confused by all the options on the sign-up sheet & had to refer to the instructions a few times. But that may've just been me, I'd only ever done Yuletide before & am not very familiar with how single-fandom sign-ups usually work.

Anyway that's a tiny niggle, and overall it was a lovely exchange and I had a blast. Thanks again!

For me, the exchange was great from start to finish. I wasn't initially sure how the request process worked, but once I figured it out appreciated the granularity to allowed in making requests and offering prompts, while still letting participants write their requests in many different ways.

I also liked the week between the due date and reveals, because it allowed for a lot of tinkering after the fic was done (and my brain interprets "done" as "after you've uploaded the fic"). I think it also had a lot to do with all the treats that were posted. And, it let me enjoy the buildup to reveals after the relief of posting wore off.

Part of me wishes the deadlines had fallen on weekends, but another part of me is glad they didn't, as it was extra incentive to wrap things up well ahead of them.

Just my musings, for what they're worth. But again, this was so much fun--thank you for everything you put into it!!

I had a hard time with the sign-up page as well, but I'm pretty sure that was just my lack of experience rather than it needing to be fixed. At first I was worried that having so many tags with a small exchange would work, but in the end it really did!

The timing worked well for me, but I was really Inspired and also prioritized this over a bang I was in, which I dropped out of. And the inclusion of worldbuilding options was fantastic! Thank you so much for that.

Thanks for creating this exchange! I enjoyed it very much.

The most exciting part was that worldbuilding was an option to request, and that specific aspects of it could be nominated. Great for a canon like this with so many unexplored corners.

I also liked how there were tags both for characters and for relationships - most exchanges I've done have been just one or the other, but this gives more flexible options in a clear way.

The one thing I was a bit confused about was, why the sign-up sheet had room for several requests instead of just one, when it was OR matching. But after I understood it was to allow for different media types, it was easy to use.
