There is a problem with the CSV for Trick or Treat.  I can't download it.  For those who don't know, AO3 generates a spreadsheet with all the sign-ups that mods can access.  The people waiting to make spreadsheets of the AO3 sign-ups have been waiting for it.  I have been in contact with AO3 support but it sounds like this might not be fixable in time for this exchange.

To help out, and ensure that those that didn't post letters can be easily searched for as well, I made a google doc with all the sign-ups on the AO3 side.  This was done fast and quick.  It does not contain any letter links.  I have allowed commenting so that people can add links to their letters and any others that they know of.  Don't abuse the commenting or I will turn it off.

I am a bit rushed right now, so the livejournal post will go up later.

Feel free to use this in whatever way you want for making any other documents to help participants.

EDIT: I have good news and bad news.  So the underlying issue is still unknown.  However, an AO3 database person was able to get me the CSV file and it was emailed to me.  I will be sending it to the people that requested it for working on spreadsheets with the emails and offers removed.  The bad news is that it did some pretty funky stuff to some of the tags.

Examples:
レ・ミゼラブル 少女コゼット | Les Misérables: Shoujo Cosette
文豪ストレイドッグス | Bungou Stray Dogs

It mostly seems to be fandoms with characters not used in English in the tag.

All pinch hits will be posted to this group.  As well as put in the comments of this post.  You can email me at halloweenmod@gmail.com, comment on this post, PM me, or contact me any other way you can to claim.  Make sure you include your AO3 account name.  You don't need to be signed up to claim.

The sign-ups glows white on the computer tonight
Not a pinch hit to be seen.
A kingdom of tags and offers,
and it looks like I'm PumpkinKing
The AO3 is howling cause Yuletide's also running now
Couldn't leave them open;
Heaven knows it's time
Don't leave it open,
don't let them see
Be the good mod you always have to be
Hit close, don't feel,
don't let them know
Well now they know
Close sign-ups, close sign-ups
Can't wait for it anymore
Close sign-ups, close sign-ups
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care
if they're a pinch hit
Let AO3 match them.
Being a pinch hit never bothered me anyway
 
tldr: Sign-ups are closed

Countdown

Sign-ups close at 23:59 Zulu time on Monday. 

Remember that the optional tags field is only for adding additional character tags that are already in the tagset.  They must be identical to the tags in the tagset to work.

Character matching does not work in Trick or Treat the same way as it does in Yuletide.  Yuletide is an AND exchange, where the offer has to match every requested character.  Trick or Treat is an OR exchange where the offer only has to match a single requested character.

Tagset | Letters | Collection

I have allowed additional tags for those that want to request/offer more than ten characters per fandom. Make sure you copy and paste them exactly from the tagset to insure that you can be matched.

Your Do Not Wants must be in your AO3 sign-up. If they are only in your letter then I cannot enforce them.

Contact me if there are any issues.

I’m in the process of doing the last few things before opening sign-ups.  AO3 has been extremely slow when working on tagsets since the Jolly Competition opened nominations.  Just be a little more patient.

 

If you have written a letter for this exchange you can post it on the Dreamwidth or Livejournal versions of this post.

 

Here is a spreadsheet.  I am not running it.  This is being done by [personal profile] daken .  If you have any issues with it contact them.  I’m just sharing the link.

For those new to the exchange, every year I post a community challenge. This is a just for fun thing. I like to announce what it is before sign-ups start. This is purely for fun and is not required.

I have added one more fandom that I have questions about to the previous post.  Everything except the fandoms/characters I have questions about has been processed.

To celebrate, if you comment on this post you can pick one extra character to add to a fandom already in the tagset.  I will add them in as I perform fixes.  This offer is good until I open sign-ups.

While not required, I’d love links to Halloween appropriate music and videos on youtube in the comments.

We currently have 958 accepted fandoms. I have just over 100 left to go through. I have not gone through and done many corrections yet, but if you see something that needs to be fixed then drop a message here.

This post will be edited as I have additional questions.

Unusual Tags - My new strategy for tags that wander even after disambiguation is to use ridiculous disambiguation. So if you see something with like "Moss Covered Unicorn" or "Dear Fishmonger" that was me.

All nominations except the ones I have questions about have been processed.
