[sticky post] Welcome to Space Swap!

space_swap is a multimedia exchange for space fandoms of all sorts, including television series, movies, and books. The only criterion for a fandom to be eligible is that it somehow be related to SPACE.

We'll be running this along typical exchange lines: participants will sign up with requests and offers, will be matched via AO3, and will receive an assignment. By signing up, participants agree to make a fannish creation for their assigned participant. In turn, someone will make a fannish creation for them.

We'll kick off the swap with a fandom recruitment phase in which everyone can wax poetic about their favourite space fandoms in the hopes of recruiting new fans. Following that we’ll hold nominations to get a set of fandoms and characters for our swap, and then we’ll have sign-ups and be off and running!

Finale - Feedback Time

While the exchange was successful (everyone got a gift!), we'd still like to get input to make it even better next year. We-the-mods have discussed it amongst ourselves, and here's a list of things where we'd like your feedback, should you have any. Of course, we may have missed something, so feel free to tell us any other improvements you might want.
  • How was the writing time (8 weeks)? How about the other time intervals?
  • What did you enjoy? What did you think could be improved?
  • Any feedback on the (final) sign-up sheet?
  • How do you feel about DW vs LJ? (We had two LJ mods and one DW mod, and almost all the questions came in via DW. Is there a reason for this fundamental imbalance?)
  • Would a franchise wrangling post pre-nominations be good so that large megafranchises could be chopped up into sensible fandoms, rather than some subfandoms and then All Media Types? (*cough* Star Wars *cough*)
  • Should ExtraPenguin, long-term horse icon user, use a picture of the horsehead nebula as hir Space Mod icon, rather than the current picture of Earth?
Love, the mod team.

24hrs Remaining

The deadline is in 24 hours, at 18:00 GMT on the 21st of May. Some of you have already been granted extensions. If you feel like you, too, would need an extension, now is your final chance.

The Deadline Approaches

Works are due on the 21st – that's 4 days from now. The deadline is 6PM (18:00) GMT, at which time ExtraPenguin will default the incomplete assignments. Watch our DreamWidth for any pinch hits. If you have any questions, or need an extension, now is the time to contact the mod team.

Treats may be added to the collection at any time from now until reveals (28th).

Happy creating, Spacers!

Sign Up Update

collection | letters post | tag set

The collection is open! (Thanks, Morbane!) This time, you'll have ticky box options on requesting and offering different types of fanwork. I've also set the requests to be visible, so that people get to see who's requesting what, and alter their sign-up based on that information. People who signed up in the previous collection still have their prompts there, and can copy and paste to the new collection.

Current opinion leans toward pushing back all future deadlines by a week. Does anyone object?

Sign Up Issues

Hey guys, Space mods here.
It has recently been brought to our attention that we have missed off the option to offer or request certain types of fanworks on the sign up sheet.
To be honest, we did not realise this was something that had been done in the past and thanks to those who brought it to our attention.
Now this leaves us at an impasse, there are two choices and we wanted to open this to the group.
1 - We leave it as it is. You make whatever you can and accept whatever the other person can make
2 - We start the sign up period again with a new sign up sheet including the option to select fanworks.
What do you guys think?

Dear Spacer Letters

This is where you can post your Dear Spacer letter!

As we all know, it's not all that hard to exceed the space for prompts that AO3 gives us. Some of us (looks guiltily at self) also really like writing letters. And hey, who doesn't want to write a letter with the title Dear Spacer? Link your letter in the comments!

For consistent formatting, let's use this as the base of our comments:

AO3 name:
Letter:
(Fandom 1): Character A, Character B
(Fandom 2): Character C
(Fandom 3): any

Sign Ups are now OPEN!

Thanks guys with your patience with sorting out the tag sets!

The collection is here: https://archiveofourown.org/collections/Space_Swap_Three

We'll be running this along typical exchange lines: participants will sign up with requests and offers, will be matched via AO3, and will receive an assignment. By signing up, participants agree to make a fannish creation for their assigned participant. In turn, someone will make a fannish creation for them.

When signing up, you will need to request at least 3 fandoms, and can request up to 8. You'll also need to offer at least 3 fandoms, and can offer up to 10. For each fandom, you can request for 1 to 4 nominated characters, or "any". For each fandom, you must offer to write 2 to 8 of the nominated characters. You can also offer 'any'.

Dear Spacer letterpost up soon!

This is SPACE SWAP ROUND THREE!

Space Swap is a multimedia exchange for space fandoms of all sorts, including television series, movies, and books. The only criterion for a fandom to be eligible is that it somehow be related to SPACE.

As with past years, we'll be running this along typical exchange lines: participants will sign up with requests and offers, will be matched via AO3, and will receive an assignment. By signing up, participants agree to make a fannish creation for their assigned participant. In turn, someone will make a fannish creation for them.
Everything is going to be staying pretty much the same despite the change in mods. The only slight difference is we will be allowing up to 8 Fandom Nominations instead of 6.
