Letters are optional. Whether or not you write one is up to you.

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 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 unlocked by 11 April.

If you're wondering what to put in your letter, try browsing through the 'dear creator' or 'dear writer' tags on DW/LJ, 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:

Here is the sign-up form. Welcome to this year's challenge! Sign-ups will close at 11:59PM EDT 5 April (see what time that is for you).

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

You can request 3-10 canons, and offer 4-10 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 11 April.

Requests are not visible now. I will make all requests visible on AO3 when the assignments go out.


Corrections are still welcome to the tables of sources for all canons.

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

See below the cut for all music sources. Thank you very much to everyone for following the nominations format carefully or for submitting links; I wasn't sure I'd be able to get these tables to you by (my) bedtime tonight, but I'm really pleased that I could, thanks to you.

The first table, ordered by song title, is alphabetised as carefully as I can manage. The second table, ordered by artist name, uses quick-and-dirty spreadsheet sorting alphabetization.

Please comment to let me know of any errors or to help me fill gaps in the tables. After at least 24 hours for perusal and corrections, I will open sign-ups.

Issues
None at present!

Nominations so far
It's on AO3, of course, but I find the AO3 wall-o-text really hard to read, so the list is under the cut in song title order.

Hello! I am so excited to start Jukebox up again for this year. I can't believe it's the fifth year already.

Journal style changes


You may notice that both this community and the LiveJournal community look a little different. With a bit of help, I re-jigged the theme and colours and added link lists. My hope is that the new design is a) more legible and useful, b) more consistent across the two communities, and c) a little prettier (though that is a very distant third). I'm happy to take further feedback; otherwise, if you add ?style=mine to the end of a URL in this comm, it'll show you the page in your own journal style. Maybe there'll be a sticky post with a nice picture later.

Currently, the links list includes the collection, the tag set, and the schedule; later I'll add other things like the canons, the letters post, and the beta post. Suggestions welcome. What makes the community easy to use for you?


Rule changes


Small changes for this year include:
Art minimum
I tweaked this to remove the pixel requirements, which didn't really work last year, and specify that if you are submitting graphics, at least 3 separate pieces are required; otherwise, please just ensure that the work is checked for obvious problems (don't draw on lined paper, make sure you have a reliable scanner or camera, check resolution, etc) and is complete. EDIT: Now changed to: collages, manips, and similar graphics may be given as treats to people who are open to them, but may not be used to fulfil an assignment.

Nominations limit
Last year I allowed 8 nominations; I'd prefer to make it 7 this year. That is solely because it seems to take around the same number of total hours for me to put together the link tables as there are nominations per participant. Weird, I know, but it's consistent. I can commit to 7 hours in one day to put the tables together, but 8 was stretching it and I don't want to delay sign-ups. If this is a large disappointment to y'all, I'll reconsider.

Requests limit
Last year you could request 3-8 pieces of music. It occurs to me that 8 is a bit arbitrary since AO3 goes up to 10 easily. Does anyone want me to change the possible request maximum to 10? The minimum will not change.

Pinch hits
Are you all happy with me continuing to post them to the community?

Any other feedback is welcome.


Brainstorming


Since nominations will open on Friday (approximately), please use this post and its Dreamwidth equivalent to share what you're thinking of nominating! This is an optional part of the exchange and so is nominating, but it's a good way to get ideas, see if other people are excited about your music choices - or at the very least, bring your favourite music to other people's attention.

Hello all!

Jukebox 2017 isn't for a while yet, but in the interests of being organized, I thought I'd let you know when I'm thinking of running it. If you're interested in taking part, do you have a preference for one or the other of the scheduling options below? Assume roughly New York time.

Option 1:
Brainstorming post: up by Mon 20 March
Nominations: 24 March to 1 April (Fri-Sat)
Sign-ups: 4-12 April (Tues-Wed)
Assignments out by: Fri 14 April


Option 2:
Brainstorming post: up by Mon 13 March
Nominations: 17-25 March (Fri-Sat)
Sign-ups: 28 March to 5 April (Tues-Wed)
Assignments out by: Fri 7 April

Both options:
Fics due: Sat 27 May
Works go live: Fri 2 June
Creators are revealed: Wed 7 June

The creator names have been revealed on Jukebox 2016 works.

Thank you very much to everyone for taking part! Thank you particularly to hhertzof, Measured_Words, and Nary, for tag wrangling, to lalalalalawhy, Measured_Words, merryghoul, Missy, Sumi, thedevilchicken, and Zdenka, for pinch hitting, and to lanalucy and within_a_dream for offering to beta read.

There was a short anon period this year; works have really only been available for a brief time. Although the year's challenge is over, I know I haven't seen everything that interests me yet, and I hope others will continue to view and/or comment along with me.


More thoughts on rules and organisation - feedback welcome! )

Remember this post is also on LJ.


ETA: I will probably have 6 or 7 nominations per person next year instead of 8 - I think people enjoyed 8, but it's more work for me and matching was not as close as in previous years. I will also probably start the exchange sliiiightly earlier, offline commitments permitting, as Easter is much later in 2017 so I won't be planning around it.

I am leaving the collection open until author reveals, four days from now (Wednesday 8 June, 5:59pm EDT). If you wish to add anything else, you can do so until then.

ETA: Most fandoms are showing up on the fandoms page, but for now, there are two missing.
You can click below for fanworks for:
Diamonds - Rihanna (Music Video)

All pinch hits are in! Thank you so much to the pinch hitters. Everyone who signed up & created a gift should also have a gift waiting for them.

Treats are very welcome! Treats of any size or type can be posted to the main collection.

I'm excited and I hope you are too. We're still working on tags (thank you hhertzof, Nary, Measured_Words); please contact me if your tags are mysteriously not showing up. As usual, I will post a Youtube playlist of all the songs that were written for - and have Youtube sources - before go-live.

If you missed it by accident and meant to complete your work, you can still submit your work to the collection as a treat.

New and outstanding pinch hits are due at 5:59pm EDT 3 June. Works will go live 24 hours after that.

Post-deadline pinch hits:

Pinch hit #7 - claimed )

Pinch hit #8 - claimed )


Two participants have extensions for their work.

My thanks to the tag wranglers, especially Measured_Words, who are working to ensure the fandoms of each work show up on the collection's fandoms page. If you're not sure how to tag your work, the formats in the tag set are a good guide. If your work isn't showing up on the fandoms page and you think it should be, please email me.

Treats are very welcome! Works of all types and lengths can be posted to the collection - see Post to Collection button at top right.

48 hours to deadline

Your assigned fanfic, fanart, or podfic is due at 11:59pm EDT on Saturday 28 May.

There is currently one outstanding pinch hit.

This post has a round-up of useful links.
Most usefully: the AO3 collection.

I'm impressed at the number of works submitted already. People still working, you (we) can do it!

If you see a hit on your work, it is because I am checking which songs have works, so that AO3 staff can look out for them to wrangle. I may check for completeness, but if I do, I won't do that until a few hours before works are revealed. I would appreciate if anything you uploaded was a rough draft at worst (no placeholder text, please) but I'm not going to police that.
