Hi, everyone!

It's an exciting new year, and this is a friendly reminder that your Ante Up fanworks are due on January 19, 2015. All we're asking for is a draft that meets the minimum fanwork size requirements. This is an anonymous exchange, so please be sure to put your fanwork into the Ante Up: The Losers Fanwork Exchange 2015 on AO3 to ensure that it remains hidden until go-live.

So let us know how you're doing or chat with us in comments. All comments are screened.

Also, the Scramble is open, too, so if you're feeling charitable or want to participate or have some additional ideas, check out Dear Creator letters and post it to the Scramble. There are no minimum or maximum size requirements for the Scramble, so go wild!

Hey folks. I know we're in the last push of the big bang (yes, it goes live in just over a week! :D!!!!), but it's actually about time for sign-ups for the Exchange. I've talked to [profile] lady_krysis and we're a go for this if there's still enough interest, though the schedule may be shifted a bit later due to RL time constraints and needing a breather. So, to judge interest, I'm putting up a poll. If you would all advertise this far and wide (help with tumblr advertising especially appreciated), we'd be much obliged. Answers are anon, and of course no one is being held to their answer here, this is just to get a look at numbers, that's all. <333

Hallo everybody! Now that the New Year is underway, it's time to remind you that your Ante Up fanworks are due on January 21st, 2013. Here are some tutorials on how to post to the AO3. Please be sure to post to the Ante Up: The Losers Fanwork Exchange 2013 - there are a couple of easy ways to do that (when you click on the "Post New Work" button, there's a checkbox right in the headers with your Ante Up assignment, or you can click on the "Assignments" link and choose Ante Up: The Losers Fanwork Exchange there (there's a "Fulfill" button)). If you need help, please comment, we'd be happy to help you with getting your fanwork uploaded.

Also, please remember, if you're going to put up graphics, podfics, vids, or other items that need to be hosted, please send to one of the mods (contact a mod post) so we can post on our regular hosting site (so we can keep them anon until reveals) - we'll send you the link(s) back, and code for streaming, if you want to do that.

If you need to default, no explanation necessary, just answer the poll (no one can see the results but me) and I will take care of the rest. Good luck to you!

Comments here are screened - please let me know if we can unscreen, otherwise they will remain screened. Thanks!

[personal profile] kate
Hallo everybody!

I hope you all have had a restful few weeks! It is almost time to think about sign-ups for our Ante Up Losers Winter Exchange, so we wanted to get the wrap-up poll out of the way, to see how you thought the bang went, and to get your ideas and suggestions for next year.

I was planning to make this a super-duper well-researched and well-thought-out poll, but unfortunately I am writing it in the airport and must be done before boarding time which is in 42 minutes. So you get the things I can think of and the ability to tell us anything you want in comments (screened, unless you tell us it's okay to unscreen).

Longish poll under here. )

And some notes on the Ante Up Losers Winter Exchange! )

Okay, so [personal profile] kate and I have been discussing the possibility of another challenge for our amazing fandom. We've hashed out a few details, but we'd love to get feedback from as many people as possible.

Ante Up: The Losers Fic Exchange has been a wonderful success, and we fully intend to continue the exchange in November. However, we were also delighted to see that a number of participants posted fics that were more than 5,000 words, so we thought: well, wouldn't it be nice if … ?

That if led to an idea for a big bang-like challenge!

Cut for additional details and some ideas we have for the challenge )

So now for the poll! Fair warning, it's long, but that's because we're looking for as much feedback as we can get before we dive in. If the poll is limiting or unclear in any way, please feel free to comment. Anon comments are on.

If you're coming over from Livejournal, this handy post provides a tutorial on how to set up and use OpenID. Once you're set up, you can complete the poll below.

POLL: Ante up for a big bang )

As we said before, we're interested in as much feedback as we can get, so if you have the time, please feel free to copy and paste the code below to share the poll wherever you can. Thanks, everyone!

[personal profile] kate
Wow, you guys! 49 new stories for the Losers fandom! \o/ Another smashing success! Your mods, myself and [profile] lady_krysis, thank you for being awesome!

And another post-exchange poll, to see if the timing is still working, or if we need to tweak things for next year. It's completely anonymous - no one can see your answers, not even the mods, so please give us your honest opinions. Comments are open and anon commenting is on, so feel free to expand on your answers, or give us feedback that way. If you want to do it privately, you can Contact A Mod We'd love to hear from you.

Long poll is looooooooooong. )

I hope everyone's new year is off to a great start so far! :D

Everyone has a little more than a week before stories have to be posted to the AO3, but we wanted to check in and see how everyone was doing.

We want to make it clear that your story does not have to be beta'ed by January 15. It needs to be at least 1,000 words and be a complete fic. Stories won't go live until January 27, so you'll have time to beta, tweak, and spruce up your gifts.

If you need to default, you don't have to tell us why or give any explanations or reasons. Let us know in the poll (results viewable to mods only) or in the comments, which will be screened.

If you feel like you need to default at any time, please let the mods know by commenting to this post or the Contact a Mod Post, by using the AO3 'default' button under Assignments in your Dashboard, or by sending a PM or an e-mail to [profile] lady_krysis or [personal profile] kate. Again, no reasons or explanations are necessary.

Again, if you haven't started on your fic yet or don't have all that many words written, there's still plenty of time.

Fics should be posted to the AO3 no later than January 15, 2012. It should be a minimum of 1,000 words and be complete. If you have that, then you'll still have another two weeks to tweak your fic and put the finishing touches on it.

Need to default? Not a problem. You do not have to provide any explanation or reason. Just let the mods know either by e-mail or PM that you'd like to default, or you can comment and let us know at the Contact a Mod Post.

And for a refresher: Rules, FAQ and Deadlines.

As [personal profile] kate clarified in this post, your fic doesn't need to be beta'ed by January 15, but it does need to be at least 1,000 words and be a complete fic.

Don't fret if you haven't started on your fic yet or don't have all that many words written. There's still plenty of time.

Fics should be posted to the AO3 no later than January 15, 2011, be a minimum of 1,000 words, and be complete. If everything's groovy, then you'll still have another two weeks to tweak your fic and put the finishing touches on it. Don't forget that you can find a beta at this post.

Also, this is an anonymous gift exchange, so please don't post your stories anywhere except the AO3 until the mods do the big reveal. As the deadline draws closer, we'll provide everyone with detailed instructions on how to post to AO3 and specifically the Ante Up Losers Collection so fics stay anonymous.

Need to default for any reason? Not a problem. You can either e-mail or PM any of the mods: [personal profile] healingmirth, [personal profile] kate, or [profile] lady_krysis. Have questions? Again, feel free to e-mail or PM any of the mods.

And for a refresher: Rules, FAQ and Deadlines.
