[community profile] ao3vidders is pleased to announce that we have 18 vidders who have offered up vids for our auction! A huge THANK YOU to all who braved the unknown (we're brand new at this, after all) and put yourself out there. I am amazed and excited for the enthusiasm so many have for the OTW's project.

Let the bidding begin!!
Vidding fans, fandom fans, OTW supporters and everyone's friends can stop by any of the auctions and place a bid. Bidding will remain open until May 30th!

What is this auction in support of again? )

Didn't have time to commit to making a vid at this time? Not able to bid or didn't win the auction you were bidding on? Want to contribute in some other manner? There are other ways to help support the AO3 project and the OTW in general. See How you can help for more information.

Vidder sign-ups are officially closed (although if you want to sign up, you can do so up until we post the auction - we'll be happy to get you in!).

Tomorrow we will be posting 18 vid auctions, so stay tuned!

A master list with FAQ and links to the individual auctions will be posted here tomorrow once bidding is open. The auction itself will be held on our sister site on LJ. No need to join the LJ community for updates, we'll be sure to keep you up to date!

In the meantime, I invite you to take a gander at the tags page to get an idea of some of the fandoms our vidders will be offering.

ETA: Apparently tags which aren't used yet are only visible to mods. I didn't realize this. I've pasted them below the cut because I want everyone to be as excited for this as I am. :)

here's a list )

First of all, just a quick reminder that VIDDER SIGN-UPS are open until next Saturday, May 15th.

In related news, OTW recently announced their Vidding Roadmap, outlining their plan for the features and services they hope to provide. Highlights include:
1. Vidding Community Resource Site
2. A Dark Archive (to store and protect vids)
3. A Torrent of Our Own (TO3)
4. AO3 Embed Code
5. Integration of the TO3 into the AO3
"One of the key resources we need to make this project (and others) move forward quickly is people power." More details about volunteering for various OTW projects can be found here.

Also, I'm happy to announce that so far we have 14 vidders signed up between our LJ & DW sites. THIS IS FABULOUS NEWS!

Welcome to [community profile] ao3vidders!!

We hope to bring you a fun and exciting vidding experience and to help raise awareness for a project that we would LOVE to see come to fruition - a fan-owned, fan supported archive for vidders. Yes, you heard me right. And I'm not talking just another hosted site. These folks are building the infrastructure and buying the servers. *G*

Who are they? They are the Organization For Transformative Works (OTW) and they are heading up a project called Archive Of Our Own (AO3). But, like any non-profit endeavor, they could use our support.

And that's where this thing comes in. This community has been created to coordinate a vidder's auction in support of OTW's AO3 project.

[community profile] ao3vidders is not formally affiliated with OTW or AO3 in any manner. We are merely participants, members, supporters and fans hoping to spread awareness and generate support for an upcoming AO3 vidding project and the OTW in general.

Sign ups for the VIDDING AUCTION to benefit OTW will commence on May 1st!


MAY 01 thru MAY 15 - Vidder sign ups.
MAY 16 - Mods will open the auction by making a post per vidder. After all posts are up, a MASTER LIST & QUESTIONS post will be made outlining all the specifics including how to bid, how to ask for more information, the donation process, etc.
MAY 16 thru MAY 30 - Bidding
MAY 31 thru JUN 10 - Donations and connections between vidder and bidder
JUN 01 thru JUN 30 - A possible reverse-bid round (details to follow)
JUL 18 thru AUG 15 - Vidder's post their vids - last date to default is July 31st

FYI ~ Bidders donate directly to OTW here. We will ask donators for a screenshot of their PayPal confirmation (feel free to black out any personal identification info) as confirmation. It can be posted in a screened comment in the donation confirmation post or request to email a mod.
