It seems that someone deleted their account and thus the fic that was written for this exchange, and because of this no default notice was sent to us.

This is due ASAP. No claiming needed. Just drop us an email if you're working on it please.

All works are in! Thank you everyone, especially our pinch hitters, without whom this wouldn't have been possible.

Works are now visible at the treat collection here and the main collection here. Please note that it may take a few minutes for AO3's system to reveal all the works and send out email notifications.

Due to having one last emergency pinch hit, we'll be delaying reveals for 24 hours. Reveals will happen at approximately 3pm EDT tomorrow assuming that this last pinch hit is in by then. We'll post a one hour warning. Thank you!

If there is anyone who has completed a gift, but has not received one, please let us know ASAP.

Please use the delay to get in any last minute edits and continue to post to the treat collection: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/rarepairfesttreats2016

This is due ASAP. No claiming needed. Just drop us an email if you're working on it please.

We're good on the emergency pinch hit front. Thank you to everyone who responded and has/is writing. We're currently short four pinch hits, and we've waiting to hear back from them. If we don't hear anything by noon, they'll be sent as as emergency pinch hits.

The collections are currently set to be revealed at 3pm EDT, but will not be revealed until everyone who produced a gift has a gift. We'll let everyone know by approximately noon if there will be a delay. If there is a delay it will likely be for ~24 hours, and we will give a one hour warning before the collections are revealed.

In the mean time, please continue to write treats! Also as a reminder, treats should be posted to the treat collection here: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/rarepairfesttreats2016

It's now past the deadline that assignments were due. In approximately 30 minutes, we'll default those who haven't completed their assignment, and pinch hits will go out after that.

Assignments are due in just over 4 hours. (What time is that for me?).

We are also still in need of pinch hitters here. All remaining pinch hits will be due on the 26th.

As a reminder, the treat collection is located here.

You may continue to edit your work between the time assignments and due and the time they are revealed.

Stories that are obvious placeholders (random text, no text, stories under 1000 words, etc.) at the time assignments are due will be rejected. If you do not default by the deadline or if you only have an obvious placeholder up at the time assignments are due, your assignment will automatically go out as a for pinch hit, and you will not be able to participate in the next fest unless you produce a full length treat before signups for the next round start.

A Note

As a reminder this is a ship exchange not a gen exchange. As it says in the FAQs: this fest is to celebrate rare relationships (romantic and/or sexual). Unless the person you were assigned specifically says they are okay with receiving gen instead of a ship fic, then gen/pre-relationship stories are not acceptable fills.

We also still have a number of pinch hits up here: https://groups.google.com/forum/?pli=1#!forum/rare-pair-pinch-hits

We've had quite a few people asking about locked/unfinished letters, and we haven't heard back from many of the people we've reached out to about them. We get that life happens, so if you can just let us know if you won't be finishing yours or if you can give us a date by when you think it'll be finish so we can pass it on, it would be very appreciated.

Bug fixed!

AO3 seems to have been able to fix the problem on their end, and we were just able to send assignments out with them. Please bear with us as we go through emails as we have quite a few.
rarepair_mod: (Default)
[personal profile] rarepair_mod
Assignments have all been sent. If you don't receive yours shortly, please check your spam folder. If it is not there, please shot us am email and we'll let you know who you've been assigned.

We have quite a few initial pinch hits up here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/rare-pair-pinch-hits

Thank you everyone for your patience as we've tried to work this out. If at a later date, AO3 is able to fix the problem, you will receive another email with the same assignment from AO3. As assignments won't appear under you assignment page unless AO3 is able to fix it when posting, you will have to fill in both the collection name (rarepairfest2016) and the name of your recipient when posting your assignment.

Please remember that all treats should be posted to the treat collection: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/rairpairfesttreats2016/profile

- No word form AO3 on getting a fix or not. We're testing mail merge right now, and we will send out assignments ourself later today.

- The email you receive from us will only contain the name of your recipient. You'll have to find their details in the request summary here: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/rarepairfest2016/requests?sort_column=prompter&sort_direction=ASC
The letter post is also up here: http://rarepairsupport.livejournal.com/5971.html

- If for some reason you receive an email whose greeting contains an AO3 name that is not yours, please let us know right away. Also please, let us know if there is any sort of matching error (ex. the person listed as your recipient has not requested anything you've offered), and we will get it fixed ASAP.

- Due to the delay in getting assignments out, a week has been added to all dates.
August 20 - Assignments are due
August 26 - Final Pinch Hits Due
August 27 - Works are revealed
September 3 - Creators are revealed

- Pinch hits will go out shortly here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/rare-pair-pinch-hits
