In light of Livejournal’s rather alarming new Terms of Service/User Agreement and the many legitimate concerns users have about affiliating with it, and also in light of the spam that’s been plaguing us for years, the GOE mods have decided we will create a Good Omens Exchange mirror community at Dreamwidth, and that is where the exchange will be hosted in 2017.

Dreamwidth allows for easy importation of all posts and comments, so we plan to do that, so the GOE Archive going back to 2005 will stay intact and the transition should be fairly seamless. We have no plans to delete this Livejournal archive at this time - we’ll certainly let you know if that changes - but we will not be adding to it next season.

Hello, Exchangelings! We are ready to go, and we are opening the sign-up process for our twelfth year of holiday delights! That’s right. Good Omens Exchange has operated every holiday season since 2005, so by now it's something of a fandom institution. A few participants have been in every single one.

Here's how it works:

On THIS post, request 3 different prompt scenarios you'd like to receive in either art or fic form, listed like this:

PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE ONE:
PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE TWO:
PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE THREE:
I LIKE THESE STORY ELEMENTS/KINKS:
I DISLIKE THESE STORY ELEMENTS/KINKS:
EMAIL ADDRESS:

You MUST include your email address with your request. Comments will be screened, and no one but the mods will see them. We'll copy and paste them into a list with names redacted for participants to choose from.

When sign-ups close, that post will open for claiming, and participants will choose the prompts they want to create from that anonymized list of prompts/requests, so anonymity will be preserved both ways. Please read directions carefully.

In other words, you will be choosing a prompt, but you will not know whose prompt you’re taking. And, as always, you will not know who requested or received your prompt until the reveal shortly after New Year’s!

THIS IS THE SIGN-UPS POST. Comments will be screened. Your prompts will be processed as quickly as possible and added to the list of anonymous request prompts. At the end of the sign-up period (Wednesday, October 12th, at midnight EST), we will ask you to select your top choices in a screened comment. Prompt claiming will be open until a date we'll specify in the prompts post. At the end of the prompt selection period, we will make final assignments based on your selected prompts. Assignments will be sent out the last weekend of October, and gifts will be due no later than November 30. Posting of the gifts begins on December 1.

So, in a nutshell:

When making your prompts, use this template, same as last year:

1. Cut and paste this prompt format into your reply post:

PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE ONE:
PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE TWO:
PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE THREE:
I LIKE THESE STORY ELEMENTS/KINKS:
I DISLIKE THESE STORY ELEMENTS/KINKS:
EMAIL ADDRESS:

2. Answer clearly and thoroughly, as appropriate. Other participants will be reading through your anonymized prompts for the purpose of selecting the gifts that they would like to give. Note that artists may prefer simplified prompts—or that they may choose to simplify your detailed prompts. You MUST include a working email address where we can contact you. Correspondence with mods is done through our email, goodomens[dot]exchange[at]gmail[dot]com, NOT through LJ or Tumblr messages.

Try to vary your requests if possible, so that some are specific and some are wide open. Also keep in mind that prompts should be amenable to either fic or art. Crossovers are welcome, but we ask that you limit it to only one of your three requests.

You have twelve days from today to submit your screened comment with your prompts to this post. Your deadline is Wednesday, October 12th, at midnight (EST).

Now go wild! And questions should be emailed to us at goodomens[dot]exchange[at]gmail[dot]com.

Your 2016 mods are [livejournal.com profile] irisbleufic (who is glad to be back after last year's health chaos) and [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed. As usual, [livejournal.com profile] musegaarid is behind the wonderful community banner-art revamp; our featured artist this year is tio-trile.

Well, that's a wrap, Exchangelings - another year of fantastic fic and art for everyone. Your mods would like to thank all participants, and a special shout-out to our beta readers and pinch-hitters.

The following is the list of Who Done Made What. Now you are free to rec, thank your creators by name, and repost your works wherever you like.

And that's all for this year, folks! Thanks again for another fantastic exchange!

This list will open for claiming around Midnight EST on September 23. Comments will be enabled (but screened) at that time. Please choose your top three choices of prompt sets you want to create. (You choose the set by number, not individual request)

[livejournal.com profile] irisbleufic has a very full plate IRL and so is taking this year off - for 2015 your mods are [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed and [livejournal.com profile] htebazytook.
[identity profile] goe-mod.livejournal.com
Please take a moment to look at our lovely new layout by [livejournal.com profile] musegaarid, featuring adorable art by elizakaze!

You all know what that means! It means it's September, and the mods are brushing the dust off and getting ready to go for the 2015 exchange.

Watch this space, and start thinking about your requests.

Reminder that when you repost your stories and artwork, please keep a link to the collection if you use AO3:

There is also the excellent Good Omens Library archive:

And the Good Omens Gallery on Deviantart:

On Tumblr, just tag it #good omens exchange 2014

It's been a blast, as always. This was by far our smoothest-running year - we only had one person who had to drop out after the deadline, and that for a totally legitimate unavoidable reason (no hard feelings)!

Otherwise, every single person who signed up followed through. That's never happened before in 10 years. You guys are the best!

We're just about there, and ready to start posting on Monday! Excited? We are.

BUT

We have already received 12 extension requests. That's about 31% of all participants, which is well past the point where the mods begin to get a little bit cranky and start looking at requests with a bit of a beady, grudging fish-eye.

We do want to have works to post in the first few weeks, after all.
[identity profile] goe-mod.livejournal.com
Reminder that gifts are due on Sunday, November 30. Hope all is going well!

If you have any problems or questions, please email the mods at goodomens.exchange [at] gmail [dot] com.

(We've had a few extension requests already, and two finished gifts submitted.)
[identity profile] goe-mod.livejournal.com
The time has come! Emails have been sent to each participant with an assigned prompt and gift recipient. Please be sure to respond to that email to confirm receipt and let us know you're still in.

If you haven't received your email or have any questions at all, just contact us at goodomens.exchange@gmail.com. :)

Thank you again to everyone for participating!
[identity profile] vulgarweed.livejournal.com
Reminder that if you've signed up for the 2014 Good Omens Exchange, you must claim a prompt to create from this list right here!

Deadline for claiming is midnight EST on Sunday, September 28. The sooner we get all the requests in, the sooner we mods can get on with the creator/recipient matching, and the sooner the assignments can be sent out and the creation can begin!
[identity profile] goe-mod.livejournal.com
Hello, participants! Please go here and leave your top three prompt-set choices as a comment (just like you left your sign-up as a comment; PLEASE ALSO LEAVE YOUR IDENTIFYING INFORMATION AGAIN, i.e. your LJ username or Tumblr URL and also your email address).

You have until midnight, September 28th to register your prompt-set choices!
[identity profile] vulgarweed.livejournal.com
We're clearing out the dust and will be putting up new decorations soon. Start thinking about your requests. We start working the minute the Pumpkin Spice hits the shops. :D

Please welcome our new co-mod, longtime participant [livejournal.com profile] htebazytook!

I hope you're all as excited as we are for the tenth round of GOE.
[identity profile] goe-mod.livejournal.com
Just a little reminder - we go til Twelfth Night/Epiphany/Orthodox Christmas. (At least.) So if you haven't got your gift or seen your creation posted yet, don't worry - it's not over yet. So relax and enjoy New Year celebrations, and know there's still a week of Good Omens gifts to come.
[identity profile] goe-mod.livejournal.com
Please take a moment to respond and let us know you've received it and you accept it and you're still in.

(Hint: check your SPAM FILTER. We tend to wind up there sometimes.)

Please let us know ASAP if you have questions or problems.

And . . . now start your engines!
[identity profile] goe-mod.livejournal.com
Several hours ago, Aziraphale and Crowley were so drunk they fell off the London Eye. Don't worry, they're fine: they remembered in the nick of time that they both have wings.

Your mods, on the other hand, are well past remembering how to HTML-code. MODS' NIGHT OFF.

And some good news! We have several wonderful gifts still in the coffers, and we have some late arrivals impending and some pinch-hits, so we're going onwards til Twelfth Night.

Relax, celebrate, enjoy (and comment on) the gifts so far, and we'll see you in 2013 (which is tomorrow) with a lot more still to come.
