The Remix Madness collection is now live!

Although the remixes are now visible, the Madness collection will remain open for signups and posting until creators are revealed at 8 AM Eastern time on September 25. I expect most of the Madness works to be posted sometime this week, so it’s definitely not too late to throw your name in!

Please contact me at remixrevivalmod@gmail.com if you receive a remix in the Madness collection that breaks any of the rules

Finally, have fun! :DDDDDD

reminders

Just a couple general reminders!

1. Remixes must link to the work they were based on. This is a critical part of this exchange; as your remix is based off someone else's work, they deserve to be credited. In some cases, it may also be difficult for the original creator to tell which work has been remixed without such a link. You may provide a link via your author’s notes or through the AO3 interface. To do the latter, simply check off "This work is a remix, a translation, a podfic, or was inspired by another work" and insert the URL of the original.

2. Remixes are meant to be anonymous until creator reveals next Sunday. If you have explicitly included information about your identity, such as a link to your tumblr, please remove it from your remix until after creator reveals. Additionally, please do not link to your remix from your tumblr/dreamwidth/etc, or add it to a pre-existing AO3 series that also contains unanon works until after creator reveals.

We're live!

The Remix Revival 2017 collection is open for viewing! Meanwhile, the Madness collection will open roughly 24 hours from now, at 8 AM Eastern time Monday morning.

 

Please contact me ASAP at remixrevivalmod@gmail.com if any of the following applies to you:

  • You fulfilled your assignment on time, but did not receive a remix in the main collection. (Please check your AO3 gifts page first in case an email went missing somewhere.)
  • You received a remix under 1000 words (for fic).
  • You received a remix that is clearly incomplete.
  • You received a remix of an unavailable work (WIP, collaboration, or previous remix).
  • You received a remix of one of your safe works.
  • You received a remix that changed the pairing (or added a pairing to a gen work where that pairing was never explicitly mentioned).
  • You received a remix that seems to have nothing to do with your original work even if you squint really hard while holding it upside-down.

 

Some of you have multiple remixes in the main collection. There are a few possible reasons for this: you were double assigned; your remixer remixed more than one of your works; or you went to pinch hit and your original remixer came through after the deadline. In any of these cases, please enjoy your good fortune!

Finally, a reminder: it is perfectly acceptable to post-date your remixes so that they have today’s date and show up toward the top of their respective fandom tags. If your remix is in a fandom that’s had any movement since you posted it, I would strongly recommend doing so. My only request, if you do post-date, is that you limit it to once during the anon period and/or once after creator reveals (so no more than twice total).

And I think that’s it for now. Enjoy the collection, everyone! :D

just a quick update

Hi again, everyone! All the pinch hits are now in, so I can confirm that the main collection will open on time, at 8 AM Eastern time tomorrow morning (roughly 9.5 hours from now). :DDD

All the pinch hits have now been taken!

The main collection is scheduled to open at 8 AM Eastern time on Sunday, September 17. If you are still editing your assignment(s), please plan to be done by then.

The scheduled opening time is based on the assumption that all the pinch hits come in on time and no emergency pinch hits are required. The collection will not open until everyone who turned in their assignment on time has a remix waiting for them, so there is always the possibility that it will open late. Any delays will be noted on Dreamwidth and Tumblr.

The main collection has re-opened to allow the remaining pinch hits to be posted. If you finish a late/additional full-length/full-sized remix for your assigned recipient, those may be posted to the main collection as well.

Pinch hits #23 and #24 are still available. Barring any unforeseen issues, it does not look like there will be any additional pinch hits.

Hi, everyone! The assignment deadline has now passed.

First, I would like to thank everyone who defaulted ahead of time; it means there are only five post-deadline pinch hits. This makes things a whole lot easier, and I appreciate it.

If you do not have a remix waiting for you in the main collection AND were not pinch hit #15-27, but you did turn in your complete assignment on time without defaulting (and the assignment was not a draft at midnight), something has gone wrong. Please contact me ASAP so I can get a pinch hit sent out for you.

The collection is currently closed for behind the scenes mod stuff. It will re-open within 12-24 hours to allow pinch hitters to post; at that time, late assignments may also be posted to the main collection. There will be a new post on DW when the collection has reopened.


That said, here are the pinch hits.

Comments are screened on this post. If you see a pinch hit you would like to claim, post a comment with the username/pinch hit # of the one you want, along with your own AO3 username. You do not need a DW account to claim a pinch hit, and you may claim a pinch hit even if you did not sign up for Remix yourself.

You do not have to know the fandoms someone requested in order to claim a pinch hit. If you check out the URL in their request and see something of theirs in a different fandom that you'd like to remix, that is fair game as long as it is otherwise eligible (ie not a WIP, remix, collaboration, or safe work/series/fandom).

You may claim up to two pinch hits with the September 16 deadline at a time. (To claim a third, please finish and post one of the first two first.) Please only take more than one pinch hit at a time if you are fully confident you can finish both in time.

These are all due on September 16, 11:59 PM Eastern time.

Hello, remixers! You have just over one hour left to turn in your assignment or pinch hit #1-14. (Handy countdown timer.)

The collection will close at 11:59 PM Eastern Time for behind the scenes mod stuff, and will not reopen for 12-24 hours. If you have not turned in your assignment by the time the collection closes, you will be defaulted and your assignment sent to pinch hit. If you are found to have posted a placeholder or obviously incomplete remix, or have only posted a draft, your remix will be rejected from the collection and your assignment sent to pinch hit. (Please note that if your posted assignment is a fic under 1000 words at the deadline, it automatically counts as incomplete regardless of its other bus test-passing properties.)

Finally, all pinch hits up to now have been claimed. The post-deadline pinch hits will be out shortly after midnight.

Reminders

Deadline, timeline stuff

Hey everyone! If you missed the reminders in the pinch hit posts, I just wanted to remind you that assignments (except pinch hits #15+) are due tonight, at 11:59 PM Eastern time! (Handy countdown timer.) At that time, the collection will close for posting for 12-24 hours so that I can sort out the post-deadline pinch hits and check for placeholders/incomplete remixes.

The post-deadline pinch hits will be posted shortly after midnight, while the collection will re-open for posting by the end of the day on Monday. Any pinch hits due to placeholders will be out by the end of the day Monday as well (though I am crossing my fingers not to have any of those).


Drafts

If you have posted a DRAFT to the collection, please make sure you have posted it properly by the deadline. If your assignment is still listed on AO3 as a draft after the deadline, I will still have to default you. (There are 6-7 drafts in the collection right now, so I thought it merited a mention.)


Remix Madness

The Madness round is still open for signups and posting! It will remain open for signups and posting until early on the 25th, but there's no reason not to go ahead and sign up. :DDDD

Hi, everyone. As a reminder, the assignment deadline is tonight at 11:59 PM Eastern time. (What time is that for me?) If you have not turned in your assignment by then, you will be defaulted and your assignment sent to pinch hit.

There are four new pinch hits today. I am pleased to say that all of yesterday's pinch hits have already been claimed, so the ones in this post are the last ones before the post-deadline pinch hits.

The post-deadline pinch hits will be posted shortly after midnight tonight.

Comments are screened on this post. If you see a pinch hit you would like to claim, post a comment with the username/pinch hit # of the one you want, along with your own AO3 username. You do not need a DW account to claim a pinch hit, and you may claim a pinch hit even if you did not sign up for Remix yourself.

You may claim up to two pinch hits with the September 16 deadline at a time. (To claim a third, please finish and post one of the first two first.) Pinch hits #1-14 do not count toward this limit, as they are due with the assignments tomorrow anyway. Please only take more than one pinch hit at a time if you are fully confident you can finish both in time.

These are all due on September 16, 11:59 PM Eastern time.

Hi, everyone. I hope your remixes are coming along! As a reminder, the assignment deadline is tomorrow night at 11:59 PM Eastern time. (What time is that for me?) If you have not turned in your assignment by then, you will be defaulted and your assignment sent to pinch hit.

There are three new pinch hits today, and I am re-posting an old one as well. The latter has received a new number in order to prevent confusion about due dates.

If any more defaults come in today or early tomorrow, there will be another pinch hit post by early afternoon tomorrow. Finally, the post-deadline pinch hits will be posted shortly after midnight Sunday night/Monday morning.

Comments are screened on this post. If you see a pinch hit you would like to claim, post a comment with the username/pinch hit # of the one you want, along with your own AO3 username.
