On March 17 at 8 p.m. EDT, the 2016 Ante Up Losers Exchange will go live. Your gift must be in its final and complete state. If you encounter any issues, please Contact a Mod immediately.

And don't forget you can create treats for fellow fans! Take a look at the Dear Creator Letters and add your treats to the Ante Up: The Losers Scramble 2016 collection on AO3 (and list your recipient in the "Gift this work to" field). You can continue adding as many treats as you'd like of any size up until we host the exchange again next year.

Hey, folks! It's the start of February (already month two of 2016 OMG).

So tell us how you're doing! Let it loose in the comments — bears, penguins, fanworks, cheerleading, musings about time.

If you need to default, please comment on the contact a mod post, where comments are screened.

And if you haven't done so already, post a link to your Dear Creator letter. Folks who like distractions might just create a treat for you for the Ante Up Scramble. Plus, Dear Creator letters are a great source of inspiration.

Hey guys.

This week has been hellish at work, so I totally blew by the fact that signups were in fact supposed to be closed yesterday morning. I have another hellish day today, so I'm not going to be able to close them until tonight, so if you know of anyone that was wavering, go on and give 'em a poke! They can sign up until I get home from work tonight, 10pm ET/3am GMT.

In the meantime - if you've put up a placeholder, maybe it's time to write that letter?

Anyone who signed up will get their assignment by tomorrow morning. <3

Hi folks.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but we had our first pinch hit this round, and our lovely pinch hitter has requested a few extra days to be able to produce something awesome for their recipient. We apologize for the delay, but reveals have been pushed back to a tentative date of Sunday, February 1, 2015. If you're anxiously awaiting reveals, consider making something for the Scramble? Letters are linked here for inspiration.

Any questions, please feel free to comment - comments are screened.

Today's the day, folks! The 2014 Ante Up Big Bang will go live in about 10 hours.

All bang and complement creators should have their finalized and complete work in the Ante Up: Losers Big Bang 2014 AO3 Collection. Please take a look at the notes about posting and a posting tutorial to ensure that your friendly mods can properly link everyone's fanworks with the correct team.

If you're having any trouble, please Contact a Mod ASAP.

We're almost there! Go teams go!

[personal profile] kate
We're baaaaa-ack! Your friendly mods [profile] lady_krysis, [personal profile] maharetr, and [personal profile] kate are... well, getting over colds and busy with work, but also super-excited to host another big bang for 2014!

So, put your thinking caps on for creative bangs and gather all your ridiculously enthusiastic (or naggy) friends for cheerleaders so we can get as many diverse and interesting fanworks as possible for this thing! We want the Losers photostory that's done with cats, a Losers family crest, and a Losers cupcake recipe book! We want the companion track for your favorite scene in the movie, origami of the comics, and a rec set of the best Losers fanworks of all time!

Join us for outrageous fun and unbounded creativity! This is the fandom that has a Losers board game, Losers poetry, and lots of Losers knitting! Whatever it is you do, apply it to The Losers, and let's do this thing!

The General Idea

We at Ante Up are hosting a Losers Big Bang — with a twist.

This big bang is not fic only. Anyone can create any large piece and submit it as a bang work.

You heard us. Any type of work can be a big bang. Art, podfic, rec sets, meta, picspams — the list goes on and on. If you can think it up, you can do it in a big bang way! Size limits for the media we could think of are included under the next cut, but if we didn't mention a type of fanwork you'd like to make as a big bang, please Contact A Mod and we can discuss size and submission requirements.

In addition - we want all the big bangs to have rewards for their work, so there will be complementary pieces as well. Complements may also be any sort of fanwork. From fic to poetry to meta to comics to podfic to graphics and anything else you can think of. Again, if we haven't mentioned a type of fanwork you'd like to make as a complement, please Contact A Mod and we can discuss size and submission requirements.

Finally, to round out the teams, we are recruiting enthusiasm experts. If you enjoy being a Beta, a cheerleader, a whipcracker, an Alpha or any other type of random squee generator, efficiency expert, or general helper, we want you to join in the fun and help our teams get all those glorious fanworks completed!

While everyone puts those fine-tune finishing touches on their fanworks (like this friendly mod), for those of you who need distractions and/or ideas to take advantage of the creativity spark, take a look at Dear Creator Letters and consider creating an extra treat for someone in the exchange!

Remember, treats have no size limits. You can go absolutely wild. Just add your fanwork to the Ante Up: The Losers Scramble 2014 Collection on AO3 and add your recipient's name in the "Gift this work to" text box. There's also no deadline for treats, so you can add lovely gifts and surprises until next year's exchange.

We're all going to make it by deadline, folks! *\o/*

Hi everybody!

Sorry, we should've probably posted something a leeeeeettle sooner, but technically your [community profile] ante_up_losers fanworks are due tonight.

I won't get around to checking for them until tomorrow, though, so if you're feverishly working away, don't worry - I won't have a second to think about them until tomorrow night around 8pm EST.

The collection is scheduled to go live on Friday, February 7th, 2014, so while they don't have to be complete today, they do need to be relatively finished, at least as big as the required minimum size limits, and posted before 8pm EST Monday, February 3, 2014. Finished works need to be posted before the collection can go live on Friday, so the time on that is tentative.

If you need to default, you can let us know here, or Contact A Mod for a variety of ways to let us know. If you're interested, you can sign up to be a pinch hitter.

And of course, any questions, please Contact A Mod. Comments screened - let me know if you want to unscreen, otherwise I will assume you do not. Thanks!

Hey folks, if you're thinking about treats or have already finished a few treats, you can now post it to Ante Up: The Losers Scramble 2014 Collection on AO3.

There are no size limits, so gift a few extras to exchange participants. If you're looking for ideas, peruse Dear Creator Letters.

How is it the end of January already?

Well, here's the post where we can talk about that. Feel free to let it loose in the comments. Chat about your bears or your fanwork or your ideas or what if we could turn back time scenarios. Whatever you want!

If you need to default, please comment on the contact a mod post as comments are screened over there.

Don't forget about treat-making! Take a look at Dear Creator Letters for some early planning.

So how's everyone doing?
kate: The Losers 2014 Ante Up Exchange (Losers: 2014 ante up exchange)
[personal profile] kate
Matching was pretty easy this year; I think everyone should have something good to work with. Remember that you're only matched on one character, one pairing, and one type of fanwork. Don't worry if your recipient has asked for some things you can't do - you only have to do the ones you signed up to do. If you want to create something you didn't sign up for, great! (I'm waiting on my macaroni castle!) But if you don't want to, no harm, no foul - you only have to create the work the two of you matched on.

Don't forget that gen is only noted in the categories (and if you only wanted Gen, or to create gen, then Pooch/Jolene was the pairing you had to choose). If you have questions about your recipient's requests, or you think something about your own sign-up might be incorrect and you want your creator to know, please contact a mod (please comment over there as comments are screened).

In the meantime, it's time to post links to your letters here (and consider this a gentle nudge to write them up, if you haven't)! There are a couple reasons for this. One, if you didn't have time to get your link in your sign-up, this will give your creator somewhere to look you up. Two, I know I trawl Dear Creator letters for Scramble ideas - I'm betting lots of other people do too. I love making treats, so I like to take a peek at what folks are looking for.



Hope everyone enjoys their assignments!

I am about to climb on a plane. We had company this weekend, so I did not get a chance to close signups and do matching. After my plane ride I will be working for 8-10 hours, and then I will close signups and do matching.

If you would like to try and convince, entice, bribe or otherwise get people to sign up, please do so now! I will close sign ups some time around 9pm PST.

Hey, everyone, thanks for your incredible patience. This is a heads up post to let folks know that [personal profile] maharetr, [personal profile] kate, and I are planning on hosting another Losers Fanwork Exchange!

Deadlines, rules, and additional posts will be coming soon once we get the details ironed out. One thing is for certain, though: sign ups will be open this month!

Our opt in post for remixes and other transformative fanworks is also open if you want to take a peek and/or add your name to the list.

Keep an eye out, and we'll start spreading the word soon.

This is the tutorial for posting your bangs and complements to Ante Up: The Losers 2013 Big Bang (stolen from [profile] lady_krysis with immense thanks :D). This entry explains how you should post your fanwork to the Archive of Our Own (AO3) to ensure that your fanwork remains hidden, so the mods have a chance to make sure everything's on track before we go live with Ante Up: The Losers 2013 Big Bang.

This tutorial applies to both bang creators and complement creators but caters primarily to those who are first-time AO3 users or those who aren't familiar with the posting interface.

IMPORTANT: All bang creators and complement creators need to list [archiveofourown.org profile] kisahawklin as co-creator on their fanworks. [personal profile] kate is our background linker extraordinaire (thank you [personal profile] kate, omg). This step is crucial and will make everything so much easier for your mods. Rest assured that we won't make any changes to your fanwork, and we are not trying to take credit for your efforts. This step just allows us to make sure that everything has been posted and linked correctly, and that all fanworks are connected to their bangs and complements. [personal profile] kate will delete herself as co-creator before the bang goes live.

If you're familiar with posting to the Archive, take note of the bolded steps 11 and 15 below, and you should be good to go.

Detailed instructions )

Remember: you can edit your fanwork at any time by simply clicking Edit. Make any formatting, tag, or text changes that you like, and click Post or Post Without Preview.

For those participants who need hosting, please e-mail your final, completed fanwork to the mods. The html that we gave you will not change. We will replace your draft with the completed fanwork.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns comment here or contact a mod. :)
