Signup reminder; collecting letters!

First: Signups are well underway, with 22 people signed up as I type this post, and a good variety of fandoms represented! If you haven't signed up yet, well, there's no time like the present! You still have plenty of time (signups close early on December 28), but there are a couple of reasons to do it early if you can:

- The earlier you sign up, the more chance there is that other people can see your requested fandoms on the signup summary and remember they could offer something you want! :3

- Potential technical difficulties: Yuletide's posting deadline is the 21st, and stories are revealed on the 25th, which means about 2,000 participants and an untold number of other readers increasing the load on the archive. I'm still hoping this will be the year that the servers are powerful enough and the code is optimized enough that Yuletide doesn't bring the archive to its knees, but it seems best to be prepared for trouble. ^^

If you're still agonizing over what your last request or offer should be, no worries! Take as much time as you need. But if you have your ideas together, it can't hurt to add them early. (Remember, you can always edit your signup by going back to the signup page, as long as they're open -- you can add, change, or remove any part of your signup so long as you still meed the three-fandom minimums when you're done.)

Second: Dear Valentine letters!

Writing a letter to your writer/artist is optional, but it's a great way to tell your Valentine more about the things you love and the things you'd rather avoid. If you've written a letter, please link it in the comments of this post! Include your AO3 name and the fandoms you're requesting in your comment, please, so it's easy to find.

Happy signups, all! ^_^
