I was wondering what the interest would be in a multi-fandom vid exchange. I've wanted one for so long that contains some of the larger fandoms that I thought it might be best just to run one! :D
P.S. My intention is to use the AO3 challenge feature within the Collections to do matches and such - perhaps encouraging more vidders to archive there (?).
Looking at the calendar of events, and if there is enough interest in an exchange, I would expect our schedule to be something like this:
Fandom nominations: July 10th - July 20th
Vidder Sign-Ups: July 21st - July 31st
Vids due: September 30th
That should allow folks to get it out before festivids really gets going, no?
Some general notes/thoughts:
- Any fandom can be nominated, big or small. I might limit the number of fandoms someone can nominate to something like 10? IDK, I can't imagine working with the behemoth list that festivids does. ((OMG how do they do that?))
- Sign-ups might require at least one 'big' fandom, akin to the safety that festivids uses. Again, not sure. This would depend on what happens in fandom nominations.
- Opinions, thoughts and suggestions are all welcome!
Would you be interested in participating?
yes! I love exchanges
no, I don't have time but I'd love to see it happen
not interested, too many similar things already exist
- Selecting "yes!" in the poll does not obligate you to participate. I'm just trying to see if there's interest. :D
crossposted to ao3vidders, there are polls on both sites. Please fill out either one (but not both).
