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.

Four Hours

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 beta post has gone up at the support comm here.

Also there are just over three weeks left before assignments are due.

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.

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

We haven't heard anything back from AO3 since we gave them access to the collection yesterday afternoon. We really apologize that this is taking a ridiculous amount of time. If it's not fixed by this weekend, we'll send out emails ourselves on Sunday, and then send out assignments "officially" as soon as we are able. If you prefer not to wait till them, you can shoot us an email (rarepairmod@gmail.com) with your AO3 name and we can tell you who you're assigned.

ETA: We heard back. Good news: they're still looking into it. Bad news: they might not be able to fix it.

AO3 finally got back to us. We gave them access to the collection, so hopefully we can move forward soon.

Hey guys. We haven't heard anything from AO3 yet and have tried everything in our power to get matches to save like they're supposed to with no success, so unless the problem magically fixes itself, we're stuck until AO3 steps in. Sorry for the delay, and we'll let people know when we hear something.

We've heard back from everyone, and our plan was to send out assignments this afternoon. Unfortunately, we seem to be experiencing a bug as matches won't save for a couple people. We've contacted AO3 and are waiting for a response from the.

Emails have been sent to those who don't match on offers. If your name starts with H, A, S, or B, please be sure to check your email.

It also seems like we're going to have quite a few initial pinch hits. If anyone would like to add anything to their signups, we'll be happy to do so. Please don't feel like you have to unless you really want to though!


Comments will be screened.

When choosing "ANY" it means any of the nominated pairings in the tagset, not any pairing in the fandom.
