All works at the collection now show their creator's names. You are welcome to widely promote what you wrote or drew.

Thank you so much to everyone for participating! This exchange is a joy to me every year. In particular, thank you to the pinch hitters: [archiveofourown.org profile] AlexSeanchai, [archiveofourown.org profile] Deifire, [archiveofourown.org profile] karrenia_rune, [archiveofourown.org profile] mtgat, [archiveofourown.org profile] LadyBrooke, [archiveofourown.org profile] goosecathedral, [archiveofourown.org profile] weakinteraction, [archiveofourown.org profile] Supertights, [archiveofourown.org profile] Measured_Words, [archiveofourown.org profile] ExtraPenguin, and [archiveofourown.org profile] higuchi.

Feedback is welcome! How'd the timing work (length of creation time, length of anon period, point in the week that deadline & reveals were)? Anything else you'd like to comment on? If there are songs you'd like to nominate in future, maybe mention them here so that future!you has a note to come back to...

All else equal, I expect to run Jukebox in 2018 at around the same time - nominations in March, reveals early June.

I've not even checked out half the collection, so expect more comments from me in the coming weeks/months.

The collection is set to moderated if you want to squeeze in a late treat for anyone.

Final note: If you defaulted, and you did not comment on the gift(s) you received, you may not take part in future. (One of those conditions is fixable.) This penalty does not apply to people who defaulted and then didn't get any gifts - you are in the clear.

These and More Than These - Jason Webley (Song)

Enjoy! I will add to it as pinch hits or treats come in. Some songs have more than one work! This may be a spoiler to what you're getting as a gift: click advisedly.


Regarding the fandom page at the collection
You may notice that the collection presently reads 49 works, 12 fandoms. Current AO3 wrangling policy is that unrevealed works are not wrangled. However, one of our participants who is also a wrangler has kindly agreed to wrangle the fandoms immediately at the time of reveals. I am also happy to consider any suggestions for additional aides to provide to ensure you can find what you're looking for. Meanwhile, please check that your work's fandom tag follows Archive standard for songs/music videos, i.e., Song - Artist (Media).

Please see previous posts for outstanding pinch hits. Treats are also very welcome.

Most works should appear as Song Name - Artist (Media).

Hello!

Hope you're enjoying your assignment. Barring any pinch hits, this should be the last post from me for a little while.

Volunteer to be a Beta


If you can offer feedback on fic, art, or podfic at the draft stage, please comment here or on LJ. The following information is necessary:
  • What media you can give feedback on

  • Your AO3 name, if it's different from the name you're using to comment with, and you've signed up to this year's exchange

  • How to contact you.

Additionally, the following information may be useful:
  • Any content you will not beta, or warnings you would like before opening a file

  • Things you're particularly interested in (themes, tropes, gender configurations for romance/sex)

  • When you are or aren't available

  • Your preferred file formats.


If you can check spelling or tell someone what confused you or what you liked about a story or piece of art, or if you can give technical suggestions to improve an artwork or a podfic, please consider volunteering! Betas are awesome. Thank you.

It is not mandatory to get your work beta-checked. It is merely very much encouraged. If you're having trouble finding a beta, please talk to me, Morbane, and I'll try to help.

Please don't post openly about what you're creating & who for - but it is fine to discuss this privately with your beta.

You should now be able to access your assignment from your Archive of Our Own account. Thanks to CJ for sorting out the assignment interface problem with a handy tip.

I will post initial pinch hits tomorrow my time. Also upcoming: beta posts, and a playlist of all requested songs.

Assignments are due at midnight EDT between the 27th and 28th of May (Sat/Sun), or 4am UTC 28th May, or 4pm NZST 28th May. If your assignment does not seem to match what you offered, please email jukebox.mod@gmail.com as soon as possible, and I'll look into it. Otherwise, please submit a work to match one of your recipient's songs in a medium they requested for that song, taking note of their Do-Not-Wants, before the deadline.

Have fun!

I have re-opened sign-ups while the technical difficulty is ongoing. See end of post for ETA!

Anyone is welcome to sign up or to adjust their sign-up. However, I strongly suggest that while you're editing a sign up, you save anything you've written frequently (for example, in a text document), and check the comm frequently - I will give notice when I close sign-ups again, but it may not be very much notice.

If you have any questions or problems, let me know at jukebox.mod@gmail.com.

Thanks for your patience.


ETA: Sign-ups will close at midnight-thirty Eastern time, or 4:30am UTC, or at the next :30 from now. If you are making changes, please save and submit them before then, or contact me! Thanks.

I'm having a small technical difficulty that is preventing me from sending assignments, and have contacted Support. I don't yet know if this will delay assignments.

Good news: everyone has a potential recipient.

It is possible that there will be a further, brief window for sign-ups or for adjusting offers/requests, but I cannot promise one.

You can sign up, or edit your sign-up, for one remaining hour at the collection.

Sign-ups for Jukebox 2017 are open for two more days and close at 11:59pm EDT, Wed 5 April | the end of this countdown. When sign-ups close, you will not be able to edit your requests or offers, or add a letter link.

If you're still tossing up your offers, consider going to the tables of all songs and listening to, or reading the lyrics of, a couple of pieces of music whose names catch your eye. You can see on the sign-up summary if anyone's asking for them yet.

A note: since I've had 3 similar conversations on this topic recently, it seems like a general post would be useful.

When writing your requests, please treat each piece of music as its own fandom.


What does that mean?

The FAQ currently says:

...The piece of music must be able to stand on its own without reference to a longer work. You can nominate songs from musicals or operettas or other media – but if it would be necessary to understand the whole musical, or the whole operetta, etc, in order to appreciate the piece, then that piece of music is not appropriate for this exchange.

Songs should be considered separately from their artists. Prompts should include musician RPF only if the song or music video can be considered to have an autobiographical or self-referential element. People who appear in music videos are generally to be treated as characters, not as their real-life or RPF selves...

and,

Songs and music videos are the only canons you can nominate or request in this exchange. Just as a song can include a whole world, participants are encouraged to focus on those worlds.



So: please don't ask for works in other fandoms that use the song video or lyrics in some way. If a piece of music from a larger work (opera, movie, concept album with an official story behind it) has been nominated, please don't ask your creator to create a work that requires understanding of the larger specific work - you are pretending that the nominated piece stands on its own.

If you ask for another fandom or for a larger fandom, you are essentially asking your writer to produce a crossover. In general exchange etiquette, those are the VERY optional kind of optional details. Here, they contradict a goal of the exchange: ideally, when works are revealed, anyone should be able to see and appreciate a work with no more background knowledge than the requested song.

I am making this post not because people are wilfully breaking rules, but because the existing rules are perhaps providing insufficient guidance.
