Hi! As some of you know, the old mod had to step down, so there’s a new mod this year along with some old ones who helped last year and are back to help this year. Right now, we’d like to just get thoughts on the schedule for this year. We’ve obviously missed starting the same time as last year, but we don’t want to push things too much later and end up running into Trick or Treat, Yuletide, etc.
For reference, last year’s schedule is behind the cut. ( Read more... )
Ideally, I’d like to open sign-ups for this year no later than June 21, 2017, and keep them open until July 7. I realize that’s a little shorter than last years, and if that seems like a major problem for anyone, I’ll keep them open longer. If we do go with that, the schedule would look something like the following:
Sign Ups Open: Wednesday Morning, June 21st, 2017
Sign Ups Close: Friday Night (aiming at an exact time, 11:59 EST), July 7, 2017
Giftbox Posting Begins: Saturday, July 8, 2017
Giftbox Posting Finished: on or before Wednesday, July 12, 2017
Request Spreadsheet Finished: on or before Monday, July 17, 2017
Fandom Entries Up: on or before Thursday, July 20, 2017
AO3 Collection/Comments Open: on or before Friday, July 21, 2017
Needy Giftbox Requests Begin: Friday, September 1, 2017
AO3 Collection/DW Comments Revealed: Saturday, September 23, 2017
If this seems like too short a period of time to anyone, suggestions/comments are welcome! Reveals will be delayed if someone doesn’t have any gifts in their giftbox, but hopefully that will not be a problem. If you have any opinions/suggestions/comments about other parts of Fandom Giftbox, feel free to post them here as well. :) Thanks!
