That's it for this round of the exchange. You can find the masterlist here. There haven't been a lot of comments in the last week, so please take the time to comment when you catch up on fics you've missed. It should go without saying that you are expected to comment on the gift made specifically for you: if you haven't done that yet, please remember to do so soon. It's very rude not to thank the person who wrote/drew something just for you. I hope that everyone enjoyed participating and liked their gift. If you repost your fic on AO3, you can add it to the got_exchange collection. Thanks to all participants, and especially to [livejournal.com profile] vanaofthevalar for pinch-hitting.

This was already the tenth round of [livejournal.com profile] got_exchange. I had no idea how big and long-running this exchange would become when I started it almost exactly three years ago, but I'm so happy about it. I always have a lot of fun organising this, and I'm very grateful to all of you for participating, for writing and drawing and commenting and making this whole thing possible. As always, if you have any suggestions or feedback, please tell me.

I'd suggest that we do the next round of the exchange fairly soon, because I know that there are a lot of exchanges, gift swaps, Yuletide etc. at the end of the year, not to mention that real life gets busy for most of us around that time. That's why I'd like to have everything wrapped up before December, so everyone can focus on other things in December and we can just start the exchange round after that in the new year.

So here's the schedule for round 11:
- sign-ups will be open from September 1st to September 12th
- assignments will be sent out on September 14th
- the deadline will be on November 2nd
- posting will start on November 3rd

Btw, since summer is holiday time, if you already know that you won't be able to fill in the sign-up form in early September, feel free to send me an email with your sign-up info using last round's form. This goes only for people who absolutely won't be able to sign up 'normally' because they won't have internet access or whatever - I don't want to get twenty email sign-ups now. ;)

Also, for those of you who are interested, there's a new multi fandom femslash exchange. Sign-ups for that are currently open.

The deadline is today. Unless we've agreed on an extension, you should send in your fic/art by the end of the day. If you need a few more days to finish your work, please let me know. If, for whatever reason, you won't be able to finish your fic/art at all, tell me as well so I can find a pinch-hitter.

Posting starts tomorrow with one fic/art per day. I may switch to two per day once everyone has actually sent in their work. 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; not thanking the person who spent so much time writing/drawing something for you is incredibly rude.

I hope everyone enjoyed working on their fic/art and that you will all like your gift.

The deadline is in a bit less than two weeks, on Sunday, July 13th. Please reply to this post to let me know whether you will be able to finish your fic/art 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 as soon as possible, 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 an e-mail from me. Obviously you don't have to check in with me if you've already sent me your fic.

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. You have to do this manually. It is not enough to tell Word to leave a bigger space between paragraphs because that will not show up when your fic is copied & pasted on LJ. I know that should be obvious, but there's always someone who forgets about it and it makes fics pretty hard on the eyes.

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 13th. Please try to finish your fic/art by then. 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.

If you need a beta reader, you can contact someone from this list. You can also still sign up as a beta reader if you want to. If you have any problems or questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

I just sent out the assignments. Please make sure you have received an email from gotexchange[at]hotmail[dot]com. If you haven't, tell me right away. I hope everyone is okay with their assignment. Most of you will probably not like all of the prompts you've been assigned, but I did 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 for whatever reason, tell me as soon as possible so I can look for a pinch-hitter. Don't just disappear without a word.

There are 37 participants this time. I hope that all of you like your prompts and that you'll enjoy writing/drawing them. Thanks to everyone for participating and have fun.

Beta sign-up:

Anything else?

The poll has been open for almost a week and I think the result is pretty clear by now, so I'm closing it. About half of you wanted the sign-ups to open in May and almost as many people wanted to start the next round right away; only four people wanted to wait longer. So we'll go with the first option.

Here's the schedule for round 10:
Sign-ups will be open from May 12th to May 23rd.
Assignments will be sent out on May 25th.
The deadline is July 13th.

I hope that works for most of you. I feel like we should do something special because it's round ten, but I really have no idea what we could do differently, so I guess everything will be the same as usual. ;)

Don't forget that you can follow the got_exchange tumblr if you want to make sure you won't miss the sign-up post.
