Run-off round for the top two titles and a few I liked from the comments. This second poll will last until Tuesday morning when I will make a decision and a Comm.

It's early days yet but I'm planning on running a kids'/YA book fic exchange this August and I've got a poll up on my Dreamwidth to gauge interest and hopefully choose a name.

The current plan involves nominations in mid-July, assignments by the beginning of August and reveal in early September. It will be open to all books or stories published for children or Young Adults (including republished adult titles and audio only books & stories), with no limits on original language or popularity.

Expect a pretty banner and comm links once this thing has a name.

We have some banners under the lj-cut if you'd like to help promote Not Prime Time, including one that's the html code for just text and links.

If inspiration strikes and you'd like to create a Not Prime Time banner or icons to share, please don't hesitate in posting it in the comm. Jenn and I would appreciate it and the more the merrier.

(The tag set link won't really be usable until nominations start on April 5, so don't worry that there's nothing there yet).

This week in the Hiatus Resolution 2012 collection:
One story in Doctor Who (1963) )
Want to join in on the fun? The 2012 list of participant prompts is here. If you need an AO3 code invite, please let us know.

[personal profile] bridgetmkennitt
Nominations are a few months away (April 5 to April 12) which means there's still time for people to write stories for Hiatus Resolution.

From the FAQ:
Just like Yuletide has New Year’s Resolution, Not Prime Time has Hiatus Resolution. Once author reveals are over, a new collection will be available for anyone who wants to fill one of prompts from the prompt list. You didn't have to participate in the latest Not Prime Time exchange to fulfill a prompt.

Just like with Not Prime Time, having a story that matches the fandom and characters of a request and meets the minimum 1000 word limit is all we require.

You can upload your story in the Hiatus Resolution 2012 collection. Prompts can be found on googledocs.
bridgetmkennitt: (Umbrella)
[personal profile] bridgetmkennitt
Nominations are just around the corner (in April, but it takes time to review canons and to possibly take on new canons) and if you'd like to promote your fandoms in order to entice fellow participants to offer/request, this is the place to do it.

Please keep discussions of each fandom in separate comments with the subject of it as that fandom. Please also put in the subject warning for common triggers (in the canon and especially anything that is in your comment).

Our guidelines for a medium sized fandom is a) a fandom that isn't listed on the recent Yuletide nomination list (or Signup Summary) and b) isn't a fandom with over 20,000 fics available (megafandom list on LJ and on DW).

RPF is allowed within Not Prime Time and is an exception to the requirement of "a fandom that isn’t listed on the current Yuletide nominations list" though we ask that participants keep to the spirit of the exchange and do not nominate/request very rare RPF. It is still held to the megafandoms requirement, however. Movie fandoms with over 1000 stories on fanfiction.net and/or over 100 stories on AO3 will be considered medium sized fandoms, as long as they are not considered megafandoms.

(If your fandom is on the borderline between Yuletide and Not Prime Time, feel free to promote it here as there are months for it to grow. We will check its eligibility during nominations).

We at Not Prime Time hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, and if you participated in Yuletide, a wonderful Yuletide as well. Our next round will start in the beginning of April with nominations (schedule is posted on the profile page). Don't forget to follow our npt_admin comm on LiveJournal or Dreamwidth or our tumblr for announcements.

Have a happy new year!

Kaleidoscope nominations are open. Kaleidoscope is a multimedia fanwork exchange for rare chromatic source fandoms.

If there's an upcoming medium sized or rare fandom exchange/challenge you'd like to promote, you may post it within our [community profile] not_primetime comms and use 'alt challenge link' to tag it. We love to see fandoms flourish and, especially with rare fandoms, we'd loved to see them grow into medium sized fandoms and become eligible for Not Prime Time.

NOT A MOD

So, betas are pretty awesome.  I was thinking lets have a resource post where we can just post our AO3 screennames and what we can beta.  It could be canon, geography, languages, law, grammar, etc.  The purpose of adding your AO3 screenname is so you don't actually end up betaing your own gift.

Not Prime Time has an IRC chat so people can hang out, find help for their fics, or just socialize. No password needed.

server: irc.sff.net (standalone server)

room: #notprimetime

There are several irc clients you can use to access the chat like Chatzilla, mIRC, andchat for your Android phone, etc.

For more information about connecting to the chatroom, here's a link (the post is how to connect to Yuletide's chat, but the principle is the same).

Gophering

While Yuletide chat has hippos, Not Prime Time has gophers. Gophers are people in the chat who volunteer to act as a go-between for people so they can keep their anonymity until reveals. They are noted by the word Gopher in front of the username they choose in chat.

Example:
BridgetM
GopherBridgetM
GopherJenn
