The collection is now set to show creator names as well as works. This year's Jukebox is over!

Thank you so much, everyone who participated and wrote and drew - assignments and treats and pinch hits. In terms of works, this Jukebox was the largest ever.

Please continue reading, viewing, and commenting at the collection. See previous post for a table of links and lyrics & a playlist for works submitted before reveals. The collection is on moderated if you wish to add any late works.

Jukebox will run on a similar schedule next year.

I am always interested in feedback on what went well for you or didn't. Please feel free to give feedback either anonymously or with a name attached.

Thank you again!

Reveals
Enjoy your gift and other works at the collection! Please thank your author(s)/artist(s).

Please do not say what you wrote or drew. When you are logged in, you can reply to comments on your own work and you will show as 'Anonymous Creator' until reveals.

Tagging
Wranglers have already gone through the collection - thank you, wranglers. Please do tag the song or music video that you have created a work for, and please do not tag a larger property that the song relates to unless you believe the work would have appeal for people clicking on that tag.

Collection aides
Here is a YouTube playlist of all songs and music videos for which a work was made. Watch/listen on YouTube



Below the cut is a table of all songs and music videos for which a work was made, including YouTube link, lyrics, and links to Jukebox 2018 works on AO3.

Find all the things )

Please let me know of any missing or incorrect links - comments are welcome. If there is a problem with the gift(s) you have received, please contact me at jukebox.mod@gmail.com.


Enjoy!

Congrats and thank you, amazing pinch hitters, treaters, and people generally.

The collection will open for reading/viewing/listening at:
5pm EDT 2 June
9am NZST 3 June
9pm UTC 2 June
See what time that is for you
Countdown

Treats are welcome!
(See:
Letters post on DW | on LJ
Requests on AO3
YouTube playlist of requested songs
Links to songs, music videos and lyrics, by song title)


You may have noticed the low number of fandoms showing up in the fandoms list of the collection: many Jukebox works are for new fandoms and this is their first work. I will post an updated playlist and some finding aids (video/lyrics/links to works) when the collection goes live, and I expect fandoms will be canonized relatively quickly.

Hello Jukebox participants! Your assignment is due in under a week!
Time in your timezone
Countdown
Treats can be posted to the same collection until works reveals.

If you're having a problem, please contact me at jukebox.mod@gmail.com! The earlier you let me know of a problem, the better the chance I can do something useful about it. That said...


Mod Out-of-Contact Time


I will be entirely out of contact from 9pm UTC on 24 May to 6am UTC on 27 May. (I'm at a scout camp. Absolutely no internet. We have one land line and a helicopter pad for emergency services [and a whistle and a light for attracting attention].) I'll get back about 22 hours before the deadline, and will happily deal with any queries then (especially with your drafts)...


Why would I have a problem with my draft?


tl;dr: there's a bug where a work you post anonymously skips the 'anonymous' part; you can get around it by saving your work as a draft and checking it carefully at that stage.

The reveals bug )


Prompts from pinch hitters


This year we have many pinch hitters who aren't signed up for the challenge!

If any of you would like to give prompts that are based on songs and music videos, in case someone is inspired to create a gift, you are welcome to comment to this post or the LJ equivalent with your prompts. Thank you!

Sorry for taking so long to get this up! Please enjoy a Youtube playlist of all songs and music videos requested in the challenge this year. They're in the order of the sign-up summary, or, I recommend listening to them on shuffle. (The embedded version will only load the first 200 of 302 songs, so I recommend watching/listening at YouTube.)




For lyrics, and more links, see:
All songs by artist name
All songs by song title

Corrections welcome. Please let me know if a video won't play in your region (especially if you can help me find one that can, that I can add in).

Happy listening!


Meanwhile, if you can beta art, fic, or podfic for this fest, more volunteers are welcome at the LJ post or at the DW post.

I hope everyone's assignments are going well.

If you are willing to give feedback on someone's draft work, please comment here.

Some possible information to include in your comment:
  • Your AO3 name, especially if you're signed up to the challenge

  • Which media you will comment on, out of art, podfic, and fic, and to what level of detail - ie, just spelling and grammar, or more?

  • Your general availability and time requirements

  • Types of document you can view and comment on

  • Squicks and content you don't want to give feedback on

  • How you prefer to be contacted.


Getting constructive criticism on your work before it is given as a gift is not mandatory in this exchange, but it is encouraged.

This post is also on LJ.

Sign-ups close at ADJUSTED 3:00AM EDT April 13, or at 7:00AM UTC April 13.

Here's the countdown.

Please make sure your offers match at least one request! You can see the requests on AO3 or in the updated list on this community.

We currently have 47 sign-ups, which is a perfectly good number with which to run the exchange. However, I'm a little puzzled, because it's lower than average - whereas the tag set is far, far bigger.

Should I extend sign-ups another day - would that affect anyone positively?

ETA I am going to extend sign-ups for 27 hours past what I originally said, partly because of slightly odd (but not problem-causing) numbers, and partly because the way my work schedule falls this week, it's going to be a lot easier to send assignments the day after. The countdown is updated. I apologise to anyone who was just hoping to get their assignment soon. I hope it is excellent when it comes.

Jukebox 2018 sign-ups will close at 11:59pm New York time on 11 April. Here's a countdown.

It's exciting to see both new and returning names at the collection profile.

I'm sorry about the broken sign-up summary. I will try to update the version on the community approximately twice a day until sign-ups end.


Note about crossover prompts
If writing prompts: please, first and foremost, prompt for your song or music video canon by itself. Your creator is offering and expecting to create for a fandom you have selected. In Jukebox, the eventual fanworks are accessible to every reader/viewer, on the level of fandom knowledge, anyway - that's why it's so important to me to provide links to songs. Because of this, please avoid prompting for - or creating - a work that would require knowledge of a fandom that is not the requested song.

[personal profile] morbane
Letters are optional. Whether or not you write one is up to you. Some people like the tradition and the opportunity to organise and format their prompts according to personal style.

If you're writing a letter to potential authors/artists/podfic artists, you can link it here or at the equivalent post on LJ. You can also put your whole letter in a comment or series of comments here, if you don't have a journal or similar to host it on. Wherever you put it, please include the link in your sign-up on AO3.

If writing a letter, please make sure it's complete and public by 14 April.

If you're wondering what to put in your letter, try browsing through the 'dear creator' or 'dear writer' tags on the DW or LJ comm, and use the letters you like as a model for your own. I suggest you include the following information at a minimum:
-your AO3 name
-the songs you're requesting
-the medium or media you're requesting for each song
-the prompts and DNWs you entered into your sign-up.

You may wish to use your letter to expand on your sign-up prompts, or just include lists of tropes you like or dislike.

Here's a possible template for linking your letter here. Use it if you find it convenient:





This year, the requests will also be visible on AO3 during the sign-up period.

There is a problem with the AO3 sign-up summary, which shows how many offers there are for requested canons - you may have noticed that it merely gives the message, "The summary is being generated. Please try again in a few minutes." This problem has been reported to AO3.

Meanwhile, there are a lot of helpful online tools to compare lists, and the feature whereby moderators can download a file of all requests and offers is working, so I will post occasional sign-up summary work-arounds in this post.

Substitute Sign-Up Summary )
morbane: woman sprawled on bed next to vinyl record, text "jukebox" (Jukebox)
[personal profile] morbane
Here is the sign-up form. Welcome to this year's challenge! Sign-ups will close at 11:59PM EDT 11 April (see what time that is for you).

Please read the rules and schedule before signing up. The rules are a little different every year.

You can request 3-10 canons, and offer 3-10 canons. If a canon doesn't appear in the drop-down menu when you go to enter it, you can copy and paste it from the tag set and press enter.

Each of your requests and offers must be tagged with 1-3 of the labels "Fanfic", "Podfic", and "Fanart".

If you are offering podfic, you are pledging to create both text and recording (500-5000 words). You are welcome to team up with a friend to create a work, whether you're the recording artist or the writer, but if that's what you intend, please contact me at jukebox.mod@gmail.com to let me know of the arrangement and to provide a contact email for your friend.

Your requests have a space for optional details. Go ahead and use them to talk about how you understand the song and what kind of art/fic/podfic you might like. However, your gift creator doesn't have to follow your prompts. They do have to respect clear and specific Do-Not-Wants listed in the sign-up (like "no pregnancy" "no scat" "no rainbows").

Your requests have a space for a letter link, if you want to provide one. You must include the link before sign-ups are closed. A letter is NOT required for this exchange, but it is a traditional way of telling your creator in detail about your preferences / advertising the exchange. I will put up letter posts shortly. If you are writing a letter, please have it complete and unlocked by the end of 14 April.

NEW - this year, requests will be visible as soon as you submit them.

Notes to Mod in Offers


NEW - I'm attempting an experiment in hand-matching. I have added an Optional Notes box in the Offers part of the sign-up. If you want to, you can use one of these boxes to give me extra notes about your matching preferences in either direction, such as "Don't worry if the person who writes for me is the person who wrote for me last year, I love their stuff," or "May I please have an assignment that includes a long letter," or "If possible, I'd prefer not to write or receive from X," (I don't need to know why) or "I'd like to draw something fantastical," or "I really want to get X, so please match me on that."

You do not need to use this feature.

You are welcome to email jukebox.mod@gmail.com with these preferences instead of putting them in the form.

I will take these Optional Notes preferences into account, but can't promise to fulfil them.


Corrections are still welcome to the tables of sources for all canons (by song, by artist).

Prinzenhasserin has created a Spotify playlist of nominated songs. (ETA: it is not complete - they welcome any additions or suggestions.)

If you have any trouble signing up, I would like to know & help - contact me at jukebox.mod@gmail.com.

Letters posts will go up shortly.

Traditionally, I don't provide a playlist of all songs at sign-ups stage (I will put one together for created works at works reveals, though).

However, Prinzenhasserin has put together a Spotify playlist - enjoy! (ETA: it is not complete - they welcome any additions or suggestions.)

I'm just going over the sign-up form and instructions, and then I will open sign-ups.

Under the cut: a very large table!

I'm going to go sleep; please let me know of any errors, such as missing or blocked or incorrect links, or missing nominations, and I will fix these errors and open sign-ups when I wake up. Thanks to thedevilchicken for a lot of extra help.

Nominations for Jukebox 2018 are now closed.

I won't be able to finish approving nominations for 15+ hours, but after that it'll go quite quickly.

I'm sorry to say that I don't think I can add any nominations in a bonus round, because we have over 600 songs nominated and our largest previous tag set was 474. I hope there's a lot to intrigue you in the eventual tag set.

Please feel free to add links and lyrics to this post for the songs you have nominated - it'll help when I am making tables of sources.
morbane: woman sprawled on bed next to vinyl record, text "jukebox" (Jukebox)
[personal profile] morbane
Thanks for all the nominations so far! And especially thanks for all the links, lyrics, and lyrics translations.

There's now a day to go - see a countdown timer to when nominations end.

We already have the largest Jukebox tagset yet. I'm both excited and nervous and expect to go through several pots of tea and lots of snacks when putting together the tables of sources.

There are a couple of outstanding queries at the previous post.

This year, I've noticed a lot of songs from larger sources - songs from video games, musicals, etc. This is fine! Just in case, though: please do not request or offer these songs if you are hoping for fic/art/podfic about the larger canon of which the song is a part. Requests and gifts must treat each song and music video as if it stands alone.

If that was your intention when you nominated it, great. However, if you were hoping to offer or request the song in reference to its larger canon, and now realise you can't, you're welcome to ask me to change such a nomination to something else you want instead.
