Admin note #1: Sign-ups are open for just under 3 more days. I will close them at approx 6pm on Thurs 16th April in my time zone, NZST. Time in your time zone is here, and there's a 'countdown' button in the 'Event actions' menu to the right. You can add, edit, or delete a sign-up until that time.

Admin note #2: I closed sign-ups briefly and ran matching, just to see how things were shaking out. Everyone has someone who can create a gift for them. Two people have no one they can write, edit, or record for. I'm not too worried, because we have 3 more days of sign-ups, but if the situation is the same when sign-ups close, I'll talk to the relevant people before I proceed with assignments. Everyone needs a potential assignment before I will send assignments out.

Admin note #3: Huzzah for the number of sign-ups so far! I am excited to see new people - welcome - and to see people returning - welcome back! And to those who have signed up or pinch hit or shown interest before, but aren't around for this round - thank you for your interest at the time, and best wishes now.


Pinch Hitters
If you are interested in pinch hitting for this exchange, please email jukebox.mod@gmail.com with your AO3 name, the media (fic/art/podfic) you can pinch hit for, and your preferred email address IF it's different to the one you're contacting me on.


Beta readers/feedback-givers
If you are willing to look over the gift someone has created before it goes live and give them feedback on what works and doesn't work for you, checking spelling, etc, please comment to THIS POST or to the equivalent beta post on LJ. Please indicate some way for the creator to contact you, any further information they need to know (such as "I will not read a story over 5k" / "I cannot look at art that depicts X" / "I'm busy in the last two weeks before deadline"), and your AO3 name if you are also signing up for the challenge.

If you are interested in pinch hitting for this exchange, please comment on this post with your AO3 name and an email address. (Alternate contacts, as through a journal, can be negotiated.) Comments are screened; anonymous commenting is enabled.

Pinch hitters are writers who step in and take extra assignments when the original writer, for whatever reason, has defaulted. They also help fill the gaps if the initial matching process leaves a few people at loose ends (some with no possible writers, some with no possible unique recipients).

When a pinch hit needs to be claimed, I'll send an email around. I will probably give the assignment to the first person who asks for it, but it depends. If anyone feels strongly about this, I can change to some kind of roll-a-die-for-claimants-within-first-X-hours system, or similar. I will send a follow-up email to the group when an assignment has been claimed.

This is an expression of interest, not a promise; signing up to the pinch hit list does not mean you must claim a pinch hit. But I appreciate all volunteers. You can sign up (or ask me to remove you) at any point up to the exchange deadline.

Since one kind person has already contacted me to ask about this, I thought I'd get the ball rolling on a pinch hit list.

Pinch hitters are writers who step in and take extra assignments when the original writer, for whatever reason, has defaulted. They also help fill the gaps if the initial matching process leaves a few people at loose ends (some with no possible writers, some with no possible unique recipients).

When a pinch hit needs to be claimed, I'll send an email around. I will then distribute the assignment to someone who's asked for it - probably the first claimant, but that will depend on whether they're already working on a pinch hit. ^!^ I will also email you all when the pinch hit has been claimed. If you put your hand up for a story, you'll either see a reply from me saying it's yours, or a general note, a bit later, to say that the pinch hit was claimed (and therefore, that it didn't go to you).

If you would like to have the option of pinch hitting for the exchange, please comment here with your email address and your AO3 name. I have screened the comments so that your email address will only be visible to me.

Exchanges tend to need pinch hitters. I am very grateful for all expressions of interest.
