How's it going vidders?

Once again, I want to thank everyone for being so supportive and making this auction a success so far. Now is the time when all the hard work is going on - I can sense the anticipation!

A few housekeeping things:
1) For those of you who have finished your vid, you are utterly awesome. Please feel free to post it wherever you'd like (it's your vid, afterall). We would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for you to post it here as well. :D Feel free to post a link, post an embed, whatever format strikes your fancy. It would be great if you could post the fandom so we can be sure to tag it right.

2) We've got beta posts!! click here to be a beta and if none are available and/or fit your needs, then click here to seek a beta.

3) Also, just a reminder. If you feel you won't be able to complete your vid by mid-August, please try and let us know by the end of July (or let us know that you've made arrangements for an extension with your bidder).

4) We'll post a masterlist at the conclusion of the whole thing in both comms.

LAST CHANCE!!! Ao3 Vidder Auction ends tomorrow

This is a reminder that bidding for the AO3 Vidders Auction closes at midnight (UTC) on May 30th. (8pm Eastern)
When is that for me? (aka World Clock)

BIDDERS: Please check the posts to see if you've been outbid!

Each auction will formally be closed by a mod-comment (as close to midnight UTC as we can get). Details about what to do next, donation confirmation, etc. will be up shortly after that. See what happens when I win an auction?

As always, feel free to leave a comment or PM a mod if you have any questions. :)

Sign-ups closed

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 )

OTW update and AO3 Vidder Sign-up Reminder

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!
