Hello all,

I plan to run Jukebox again in 2014. I don't, however, want to run it so late in the year. I have mocked up two possible schedules. I'm trying to avoid clashing with Rarewomen, Shipswap, Not Prime Time, the Exchange at Fic Corner, Rare Pair Fest, and Purimgifts, which are the multi-fandom exchanges that I'm most aware of.

If you are interested in taking part in Jukebox, please comment to let me know how these draft schedules work for you.

Schedule 1
February-March-April (writing between mid March and late April)

Nominations: Sun 23 February - Sun 2 March inclusive
Signups: Wednesday 5 March to Wednesday 12 March inclusive
Assignments out by: Friday 14 March
Assignments due: Thursday 24 April
Stories revealed: Sunday 27 April
Authors revealed: Sunday 4 May

Schedule 2
April-May-June (writing between early May and mid June)

Nominations: Sun 20 April to Sun 27 April inclusive
Signups: Wednesday 30 April to Wednesday 7 May inclusive
Assignments out by: Friday 9 May
Assignments due: Thursday 19 June
Stories revealed: Sunday 22 June
Authors revealed: Sunday 29 June

Which of the proposed schedules would make it more convenient for you to participate in Jukebox this year? (Please reply to this post to answer...)
-Schedule 1 (Feb-Mar-Apr)
-Schedule 2 (Apr-May-June)
-One of the above - but only if you change it in ______ way

Further: In 2013, only fanfiction was included in the exchange. I'm also curious to know if people might want to offer or request art. (If not many people comment to show interest in art options, the exchange will stay fic-only.)

Which categories of media would you be interested in giving and requesting for this exchange? (Please indicate all that apply when you comment)
-I would request fic
-I would offer fic
-I would request art
-I would offer art

Please feel free to add any further thoughts in the comments. Your mod offers her apologies for being a cheapskate who a) doesn't want to pay Dreamwidth so that she can make a poll with ticky options and b) doesn't want to have a poll on LJ but not on DW.

Schedule 2 would be best for me this year.

I would probably only offer fic, but I might also treat art to people who were open to it if I had the time.

I would definitely request fic, and might or might not request art.

I'm not 100% sure I'll participate (mentioning this so you can keep that in mind when you read this), but I think schedule 2 is the better one, because school would interfere less with it.

I'd only offer fic, and probably would just request fic, but I might be open to requesting art too, depending on what I request.

Schedule 1 (Feb-Mar-Apr) would be significantly better for me.

I'm happy with the exchange staying fic only.

I'll most likely participate again, because this was a really fun writing challenge. Schedule 2 works best for me. I'd offer and request fic. I might request art, or I might not, but I definitely wouldn't offer art because I wouldn't want to inflict my stick figures on anyone.

I will probably not participate -- I love the challenge, it just turned out not to work very well for my writing brain, so I dropped out this time, so I feel a little presumptuous offering feedback.

However, as a reader of the challenge, have you thought about eliminating the anon period? I've been wondering if a challenge like this, that doesn't really have a built-in audience, really benefits from an anon period -- it seems like it might get more response and be less stressful for participants if they could talk up/ talk about their stories immediately after posting.

Just a thought and obviously just my opinion but it might be worth taking the temperature of potential participants re: this issue.

I don't remember the anon period being long last time but I do think a week is okay. Would it work for you to shorten it at all? Maybe five days rather than a week? That way there's still the flush of excitement but those who prefer an anon period have that time to enjoy the anon period?

Oh, awesome. I really enjoyed writing for Jukebox last year.

Schedule 1 works best for me, and I'd request/give fic.

Also, I agree with [personal profile] likeadeuce in eliminating the anon period, I'm not sure what it adds to the challenge except another layer of stress.

Edit: Sorry about all the edits!

I like schedule 2 because it's later in the year. And I like the idea of art!

Schedule 2 would probably work better for me, and I would request and offer only fic.

FWIW I didn't mind the anon period, and in fact I kind of like having it there, but that's probably because I'm not given to promoting my fics on my DW or Tumblr so I don't get impatient.

Both schedules work for me, but I prefer 2. I'd request both fic and art, but only offer fic. I am not a huge fan of anon periods in general.

I like either schedule with a slight preference for schedule 1 as I think it falls during a vacation for me, but that's not a dealbreaker so either really works overall.

Though, would it be at all possible to have a weekend for the due date? Even if it's due Saturday/reveals Sunday? I realise that part of the reason for reveals being on a weekend is reading time, of course, but I really like being able to upload on a weekend if I can.

I can't offer or request art as I'm only able to give fic and I prefer to get what I can give.

So I would request and offer fic to answer that question directly.

I actually prefer anon periods in exchanges so I vote for keeping that in.

I can do either time with no real preference, and I would definitely offer and request fic - I don't think I am likely to request art, and I definitely wouldn't offer it. I do like a bit of an anon period myself as well.

Schedule 1 works much better for me--#2 falls right in the middle of what would probably be a frenzied rush to finish my thesis. ;)

I would offer/request fic, and I would prefer the anon period was still there.

I missed out on this challenge last year (I found it too late, booo) but I'd love to participate this year! I'm happy with either schedule. I'd request/offer fic only.
