That's it for round seven of the exchange. Here's the masterlist, so you can catch up on any posts you might have missed. Don't forget to leave a comment when you enjoy a fic/art - it doesn't take up much of your time, and most authors and artists really appreciate it. I hope everybody liked their gift. If you haven't commented on your gift yet, please do so soon. It's incredibly rude not to say thank you to the author/artist who made something just for you.

I'd also like to remind you that there's a got_exchange collection on AO3, so if you repost your fic on AO3 you can add it to the collection if you like.

I'm afraid we're going to have to take a small break until the next round because the next weeks will be very busy for me and I won't be able to spend an entire weekend doing the assignments. The sign-up post for round 8 will most likely go up in late September or early October, meaning the deadline will end up being some time in early or mid-December. I will make a post to announce the exact schedule next month. I'm really sorry about just imposing the next exchange schedule on you without asking for your opinions, but I'm afraid I have to do it this way for once. I hope the schedule still works for most of you.

If you have any comments or suggestions, if there's anything you disliked about the exchange or if you have ideas for improvements, please let me know. Either comment here or send me a PM/email.

Again, I hope everyone enjoyed participtaing, and keep your eyes open for the next round. :)

Edit: Sorry, I almost forgot to thank [livejournal.com profile] coaldustcanary, [livejournal.com profile] leapylion3, [livejournal.com profile] tmitnaiael and [livejournal.com profile] netgirl_y2k for pinch-hitting. You guys are awesome for helping out. :)

The deadline is today. Unless we've agreed on an extension, you should send me your fic/art by the end of the day. If you need a few more days to finish your fic/art, please let me know.

Posting starts tomorrow with one fic/art per day. I may switch to two per day once I know how much time the pinch-hitters will need. Please do not post your fic or art elsewhere before it has been posted here.

And the usual request to all members of the community, not just the participants: please, please comment. Nobody expects you to read fics you're not interested in, but if you read and enjoy something anyway, it doesn't take that much time and effort to write a short comment to tell the author or artist you liked their work. And it should go without saying that you are expected to leave a proper comment on the fic/art made just for you; anything else is just rude to the person who spent so much time writing/drawing something for you.

I hope everyone enjoyed participating so far and that all of you will like your gift.

The deadline is in two weeks, on Sunday, July 7th. Please reply to this post to let me know whether you will be done in time or not. If you have to drop out, please tell me now so I can find a pinch-hitter. Don't wait until the deadline to drop out, and don't just disappear without a word. If you think you will need a small extension, please tell me, but I'd appreciate if everyone could at least try to meet the deadline. If you don't reply to this post in the next few days, you'll get a pesky e-mail from me.

A few things to remember when you send your fic/art to me:

1) Include a header in the following format:
Warnings: (don't forget to warn for spoilers)
(Summary, if the prompt was rather vague)

2) Fics should ideally be sent in as text files (.txt). doc, docx and odt are also fine.

3) Fic writers: please include html coding for italics etc. Make sure your formatting works and that there is a BLANK LINE between every two paragraphs, i.e. that you hit enter twice after every paragraph, not just once. This will make reading your fic a lot easier on the eyes when it's posted on LJ.

4) Your fic should be beta read or at least spell-checked very thoroughly. If you don't know anyone who can beta for you, please contact someone from this list.

Thank you. If you have any problems or questions, please talk to me.

The deadline for the exchange is in three weeks, on Sunday, July 7th. Please try to finish your fic/art by then and not a week later. The check-in post will be up in a week, but if you already know that you have to drop out for whatever reason, please tell me as soon as possible so I can look for a pinch-hitter.

As always, we have a beta reader post if you need someone to beta for you. You can also still sign up to beta read if you want to. If you have any other problems or questions, please contact me.

I sent out the assignments last night. Please make sure you have received an email from gotexchange[at]hotmail[dot]com. If you haven't, please tell me right away. I hope everyone is okay with their assignment. In most cases, you probably won't like all of the prompts you've been given, but I tried my best to give everyone at least two or three prompts with characters/pairings they like. Since there have been misunderstandings about this before: you only have to fill one prompt, not several.

If you have any questions about your prompts, please contact me, not your giftee. If you have to drop out, tell me as soon as possible so I can look for a pinch-hitter. Don't just disappear without a word.

For the record, there are 43 participants this time. Thanks to everybody for participating. I hope that all of you like your prompts and that you'll enjoy writing/drawing them.

Sign-ups for this round close tomorrow, on Friday. If you want to participate and haven't signed up yet, now's the time. If you have any trouble commenting on the sign-up post because of LJ's maintenance work (and only then), you can send me your sign-up per email (gotexchange[at]hotmail[dot]com), but you are required to have a Livejournal account if you want to participate.

Since someone asks about this every time: The sign-ups are open until I put a big red "sign-ups are closed" on the post. That usually happens on Saturday around noon (CET), when I start working on the assignments. Until then, you can still sign up, even if it's technically already Saturday wherever you live.

Sign up here.

We also have a beta reader post. You can sign up here if you're willing to beta read for other writers.

That's it for round six, everything has been posted. You can find the masterlist here. Comments have been pretty slow this round, so if you catch up on some of the fics you've missed, it'd be nice if you could also comment on them. Some people haven't commented yet on their own gifts. That's incredibly rude to the person who wrote for you, so please make sure to comment on the fic written for you if you haven't done so yet.

Thanks to everyone who has participated this time. It was a small round, but I hope everyone still enjoyed it. Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] youremyqueen, [livejournal.com profile] kylathelurker and [livejournal.com profile] breve for pinch-hitting: you're all wonderful and I can't thank you enough.

I hope everyone is up for another exchange in the near future. Since real life is currently a bit busy for me and I'm somewhat less flexible than usual, I'll just go ahead and suggest the following schedule for round 7:

Sign-ups open from May 8th to May 17th
Assignments sent out on Sunday, May 19th
Deadline on Sunday, July 7th
Posting starts on July 8th

[Poll #1911427]

If there are reasons why this schedule is generally terrible (if it coincides with other ASOIAF exchanges or big bangs or something like that), please tell me. As always I'm open to any suggestions or ideas to make this exchange more enjoyable for everyone. If you have any questions or complaints, please let me know and I'll see what I can do. Btw, I'm thinking of changing the number of prompts you ask for in your sign-up to 4-6 (instead of 3-5), because my experience so far has been that people who only give me 3 prompts are incredibly difficult to assign. ;) Just a heads-up in case you already want to start thinking about your prompts.

Again, thanks to all of you for participating. Is there still any interest for the comment fic meme? I always enjoy it a lot, but there wasn't an awful lot of participation the last few times, probably because of the kinkmeme. But of course I'll post it tonight or tomorrow if you want me to. :)
