This is a reminder that your fills are due at midnight GMT, or in approximately thirteen hours from the time of this post. If you're not going to make the deadline, please let me know (by e-mailing whitelotusmods@gmail.com, or by sending me a Dreamwidth PM): sorting out an extension won't be problem.

Treats remain entirely welcome up until the 8th. If you submit treats after the 8th, I'll do my best to fit them into the posting schedule but make no guarantees.

Hi all! Just a reminder that assignments for the Lunar New Year Exchange are due one week from today, at midnight GMT on February 1st. For details on how to get your fanwork to me, see the posting section of the rules post.

If you're not going to finish your assignment in time and would like an extension, please let me know via email at whitelotusmods@gmail.com; I may be able to give you some additional time. If you'd like to drop out, I'd appreciate an email letting me know - there's some dropping-out boilerplate in the dropping out section of the rules post if you'd like to just copy/paste some text.

Treats are due by February 8th for confirmed posting; if I receive them after February 8th I'll do my best to fit them into the posting schedule, but I might not be able to get to them.

Hello, all! After a hiatus, the fourth round of the White Lotus Lunar New Year Exchange will be kicking off next week.

Rules are unchanged from previous years, with the obvious exception of some tweaks to schedule; I am the only person running the exchange this year, despite the fact that the rules all still say "we", so please bear with me.

The schedule:

December 1st: signups open
December 14th: signups close
December 21st (at the latest): assignments go out
February 1st: submissions due
February 8th: posting starts

Full rules under the cut! )

Hi all,

Due to Internet problems this evening I won't able to do the exchange reveals tonight - should be up tomorrow. Once the master list is posted you'll be free to answer comments and crosspost wherever you like.

Thanks for your patience!

Happy year of the snake! And happy Lunar New Year fanwork exchange!

We'll be posting one or two gift fanworks a day between now and February 25th with "LNYE" in the subject line and a lunar new year exchange: fanwork tag. Creators will be revealed in a masterlist on the 26th.

Even if you dropped out, or didn't play but put some requests in the treats post, there might be a gift fanwork for you in the exchange, so please keep an eye out.

If you'd like to make a treat fanwork, you can find prompts on the treats post (you can add prompts there at any time) or in the recent pinch hits, if you're on that list (if you'd like to be, email whitelotusmods @ gmail.com). The official deadline for treats is February 17th; if any come in after that, we'll do our best to slot them into the posting schedule, but we can't promise we'll get to them.

Assignments for the LNY exchange have been sent out. If you haven't received yours or there's any other problem, do let us know at whitelotusmods at gmail dot com.

We'd also like to encourage everyone, participant or not, to leave prompts and pick up prompts at the treats post, for more informal gift-giving.

Interested in making extra gifts as part of the fest? Not able to sign up to make a full fanwork? Treats are fanworks with no size requirements that anyone can make or request, regardless of whether they're signed up.

Feel free to leave a comment below listing your requests and likes whether you've signed up or not, and someone may make a treat for you!

If you'd like to make a treat, peruse the prompts. If anything takes your fancy and you make something, submit it to whitelotusmods@gmail.com by midnight GMT February 17th. [more info at the rules post]

If you'd like to see some more treat requests, you can check out previous treat posts - if you have something half-finished from last year, or you want to make something for one of those treats, I don't see why not!

All fanworks for the 2012 Lunar New Year Exchange have now been posted! (If you sent something in that hasn't been posted, or haven't received a fanwork -- and didn't drop out, as we didn't reassign assignments if a participant defaulted on a fanwork for someone who'd already dropped out -- do please let us know.)

You have the rest of the week to browse the 27 fanworks made for this year's exchange under the cloak of anonymity -- creator reveals will happen on Sunday. If you've yet to thank your creator, do please drop them a line.

Many thanks to our participants, treat-makers and pinch-hitters, as well as everyone else who's been following along, and we'll see you at the weekend for reveals and the masterlist.

The signups for the Lunar New Year Exchange will open on Wednesday and will be open for a week. Before we open signups, though, we'd like to run the rules and the signup forms by you to make sure they'll work for as many people as possible. We're using google forms for signups, and the signup form looks quite a bit like last year's - we just made a few changes (added characters, fanwork types, made space for Legend of Korra characters, etc). If google forms doesn't work for you for whatever reason, drop us a line when signups open and we'll transfer your info to the form.

So! Here's the draft White Lotus Lunar New Year Exhange sign-up form.

If you'd like to poke at the form or submit a test signup and give us feedback, please do! (We'll be clearing all the test responses before we open signups, though, so remember that this is only a test version -- if you want to sign up for real, you'll have to fill out the form again when signups open.)

We populated the lists of characters, ships, and genres from the [community profile] white_lotus tag list plus suggestions from last year, so they don't represent a complete list of possible characters/ships/genres/fanwork types -- please let us know about things we left out! ETA: Oh geez, I left out podfic in my c/ping; I'll fix that before we go live. If we're still missing things on sign-up day, you can list as many things as you want under "other."

Look for the new draft rules later today or tomorrow!

Hi, all! We're happy to announce that we will be running the Lunar New Year fanwork exchange for a second time this year.

Planning is still in early stages, and so we'd love to hear from you about what you'd like to see happen in the exchange this year. Last year's rules can be found here, and we welcome your suggestions and input if there's anything you think could be changed.

With Lunar New Year being on January 23rd in 2012, the timeline might look like something like this:

Sign-ups & assignments: sometime in November
Penalty-free default deadline: December 16th
Fanworks deadline: January 16th
Posting begins: January 23rd
Treats deadline: January 30th
Posting finishes: February 6th

A reminder: if you defaulted on your assignment after the penalty-free deadline last year for any reason and would like to sign up again this year, we ask that you post a fanwork to the community at some time during the year. If you haven't done so yet, you can peruse the prompts from last year's treats post for inspiration.

All of the fanworks have been posted and our first Lunar New Year Exchange is almost at an end! We'll be posting the masterlist complete with creators' names Sunday night, so you have the weekend to catch up on anything you've missed before the cloak of anonymity is lifted. Once the masterlist goes up you'll be free to discuss your fanworks as you wish and repost them wherever you like.

If there's any information you'd like us to edit into your fanwork post aside from your name - for example, a beta credit, a download link for a vid, etc - leave a comment to this post and we'll sort it out.

And if you've sent a fanwork to us that we haven't posted, please drop us a line in a comment here or an email to whitelotusmods @ gmail.com. Similarly, if you didn't default but haven't had something posted for you, please get in touch!

Comments are screened.

Happy year of the rabbit and year of the cat! And happy Lunar New Year fanwork exchange!

We'll be posting about three or four gift fanworks a day between now and February 18th with "LNYE" in the subject line and a lunar new year exchange: fanwork tag. Creators will be revealed in a masterlist on the 19th.

Even if you dropped out, or didn't play but put some requests in the treats post, there might be a gift fanwork for you in the exchange, so please keep an eye out.

If you'd like to make a treat fanwork, you can find prompts on the treats post (you can add prompts there any time; I know a couple people are looking for treats to make) or in the recent pinch hits, if you're on that list (if you'd like to be, email whitelotusmods @ gmail). The official deadline for treats is February 10th; if any come in after that, we'll do our best to slot them into the posting schedule, but we can't promise we'll get to them.
