[admin post] Admin Post: Ante Up, Losers, we're live!

You should have an email from your gifter in your inbox. So check out your fanwork and please appreciate your creator appropriately! All of you make this wee fandom awesome. Thank you so much to everyone who participated, cheered, and helped spread signs ups (and now the fanworks) and special thanks to this year's pinch hitters misura and Deannie.

Creators will be revealed in about a week, and then I'll post masterlists.

Also, you can still create treats for the Ante Up Scramble! There are no minimum size limits and no deadline for treats, so surprise a fellow fan!

Friendly reminder that fanworks will go live today in approximately six hours.

So please wrap up, refine, and put the finishing touches on your fanworks! If you have any issues, please contact a mod ASAP.

There's also still time to create a few more treats for the 2017 Ante Up Scramble. So take a look at those Dear Creator letters and gift the fandom with more Losers goodness.

[admin post] Admin Post: Counting down to go-live

Hello, everyone! Meant to toss up a post sooner but traveling and work and gosh oh gosh.

We are down to the wire! Fanworks will go live TOMORROW, April 28 (probably around 9 p.m. ET or whenever my plane lands and I get home).

This means that your fanworks have to be ready for the spotlight--beta'ed, complete, perfected and refined, so everyone gets a fabulous gift.

For those of you on top of your shit and find yourself having a bit of free time, check out Dear Creator letters and create something for the Ante Up Scramble! The awesome part about treats is not only that it's an extra surprise for someone but there are no minimum size requirements. So gift a mini-picspam of those sexy Losers in suits or a podfic of someone's favorite drabble or share a mini-fanmix that personifies Jensen's love of crossbows.

[admin post] Admin Post: Today's the day!

Hello, everyone! Today's the day to post your complete fanwork to the 2017 Ante Up Fanwork Exchange on AO3.

This just means it meets the minimum size requirement and isn't a WIP. You'll have one more week to beta, tweak and refine.

Since work has been a bear, you have until 11:59 p.m. ET tonight (5 more hours thereabouts) to post your fanwork. After that, I'll default any outliers and send out pinch hits. If you're interested in volunteering to pinch hit, please drop your contact info on the pinch hit post.

For those of you looking for more Losers-related fun, check out Dear Creator letters and write something for the Ante Up Scramble! You'll surprise someone with a lovely gift, and there's no minimum size requirements! So you can offer up a sketch or a quirky drabble of the Losers as werebears.

[admin post] Admin Post: One week left!

We’re counting down, and there’s about one week left to post your complete fanwork to the AO3 Ante Up Collection. The deadline is April 21, no later than 5 a.m. ET. So how's everyone feeling?

[admin post] Admin Post: Time to ante up some treats!

Congratulations, folks! Your fanworks are in the Ante Up: The Losers Fanwork Exchange 2016 on AO3.

Fanworks will not go live until March 17 at 8 p.m. EDT. This means that you have time to fine-tune, tweak, beta, and put the finishing touches on your fanworks.

If you're completely finished and everything is polished and complete or if you're looking for a distraction, create a treat for someone for the Ante Up: The Losers Scramble 2016. It will remain anonymous and unrevealed, just like the 2016 fanworks gift exchange, and there is no size limit. Go wild!

Check out the Dear Creator Letters for this year's exchange or look at some past letters.

As always, if you need to get a hold of your friendly mods, please Contact a Mod.
