Due to some personal issues, I am posting this now (technically, it is 20th in the part of the world where I live). You'll find the handy copy/paste code the lovely cybermathwitch has made; use it to post your requests. Put "REQUEST" into comment subject, and fill out the comment form. Also, let us know if you're willing to adopt abandoned prompts at some point of time (but we'll have a separate post for that anyway :)
Also, a suggestion - since this thing will be open for next ten days, I think it will be handy if you can edit your comments - so don't reply to request comments. I'll set up a chat/questions thread for that purpose :)
EDIT: Just a quick reminder regarding the project timeline:
*requesting: 20th September – 4th October
*assignments matching 4th October – 10th October
*assignments due 20th December
*gift posting 24th December – 7th January
Okay, everyone ready? Let's do this!
Please use the sign-up form from the text box below. You can highlight the text and then copy and paste it into the comment box. Below is an example with instructions. You must make an offer as well as a request to participate. Please note that the additional information about likes and dislikes are just guidelines, not guarantees.
Gift preference: (Please list what type of gift you would like to RECIEVE. If you are alright with more than one type, please list in order of preference, 1 = first choice. Options are: fic, icons, fanart, fanmix, or gift basket)
My request: (Please list 2-4 prompts for your Author/Artist to choose from)
Things I like: (A brief list of characters, genres, or other things you happen to like in fic that aren't as specific as a prompt - things like kissing, witty banter, Pepper Potts, etc. This doesn't mean the author/artist is obliged to use them, but they may help them brainstorm for you!)
I don't want to receive: (Please list anything you don't genuinely do not like , or can't read about in fic. This may be pairings you actively dislike, a particular genre (like character death) you can't stand, a genre of music you despise (if requesting a mix), or situations that might be triggering for you.)
Gift preference: (Please list what type of gift you would like to CREATE. If you are alright with more than one type, please list in order of preference, 1 = first choice. Options are: fic, icons, fanart, fanmix, or gift basket)
What I'm willing to do: (Please list what 'ships, characters, genres, etc. you like to create, feel comfortable doing, or consider your specialties/strengths. What kind of request will make you, as a creator, happy with your assignment?)
what I don't want to do: (Please list what types of things you don't like to create, or feel comfortable creating. Again, this may be pairings you actively dislike, a particular genre (like character death) you can't stand, or situations that might be triggering for you.)
Are you willing to do a gift basket? (Yes or no, either answer is fine. This is a combination of at least 2 items (fic, icons, fanart, or fanmix.)
EDIT! THE REQUESTING IS NOW OFFICIALLY OVER! CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE!!!
