Less than 48 hours now until signups close! I'll be cutting them off on the morning of Wednesday, December 28, around 8am in my time zone: convert to your time zone here.

If you have not yet signed up, here's where you can go to do so.

If you have signed up, please take a minute to browse the signup summary and see if there are any other offers you can comfortably make -- fandoms listed in red at the top have nobody offering them at all, and most of the fandoms with "(1, 1)" after them are only being offered by the person who requested them. Don't feel you need to offer things you don't want to write/draw! But if there are options there that you could comfortably add, it does help make matching smoother for everyone.

Finally: the pinch hit list! The pinch hit list is a group of volunteers who stand by to produce fic/art for the challenge if someone has to drop out (there are always at least a few). If you'd like to be on that list, add your email address here:

You'll then be on the email list that gets notified when a pinch hit is needed; at that point you volunteer to claim it if it looks like something you can do.

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! ^_^

Signups for the Yuri Challenge 2012 Valentines are open!

Head to the signup page to get started.

Once at least five people have signed up, you'll be able to keep track of current request/offer numbers via the signup summary.

You can also always go back to the signup page during the signup period if you want to change anything around.

And if you're not sure what you want to request/offer, you can browse the full list of nominations via the tag set.

Signups are open until December 28, and there will be reminders about timing as we get closer to the end. ^^

Have fun! Can't wait to see what you all come up with. :3

Signups for Yuri Challenge will open on Tuesday the 13th, first thing in the morning in the mods' time zone (but we're on the west coast of the US, so it will probably be pretty late in the day for some of you!). There will be a post here to let you know as soon as the form goes live. Signups happen on the AO3 so we can take advantage of their automated matching tools.

If you've already played in AO3-based exchanges, the signup form will look pretty familiar to you. If you haven't, we have a handy guide here with some screenshots.

right this way! )
