2017 Schedule
April 5 to 15 - Nominations
April 15 to 18 - Corrections
April 19 to 30 - Sign ups
May 3 - Assignments go out by the latest
May 5 - Madness collection and prompts open
July 3 - Stories due
July 11 - Main collection goes live
July 12 - Madness collection goes live
July 14 - Author reveals

The new changes are as follows:

1) Announcements will no longer be on LJ, just the DW comm.

2) Nominations will be through platonic or romantic (/ or &) relationships instead of characters. That means matching will be done through OR matching and not AND matching.

3) If you want to nominate a single character, you can do so through nominating 'Character & None' as a tag (ie Derek Hale & None). Three or moresomes will be allowed if they're already AO3 canonical tags.

4) You can request minimum of 1 relationship and a maximum of 8 relationships in each fandom. You can no longer request Any, however you can still offer Any.

5) Requests will be visible midway through signups. The anonymous author period will be shorter as well.

See everyone in a month for nominations!

I like especially #2.

About Three or moresomes will be allowed if they're already AO3 canonical tags. I'm confused, do you want us to use the canonical tags? No disambiguating fandoms in brackets at the end of the nominations to avoid tag migrations?

My confusion is just that to handle all the tag migrations without disambiguation could be an hassle. But it's your decision, hopefully I'm just being too negative.

Another question, will be possible to nominate/request/offer pairings that share the same name across two or more fandoms? If, for instance, I want to request Scott & Jean under X-Men comics and Movieverse, will be still possible for me to do that without a disambiguation tag in place?

I actually meant to ask something else, sorry for my inability to explain.

Being there no disambiguation to make the ship tags unique, I was wondering whether we'll be allowed to nominate, request and offer the same ship tags more than once across the multifandoms. Will you set up the nomination and signup forms to allow us to do that?

I understand some of the duo relationships may not be canonical, so that's fine as long as there's evidence of their existence in said fandom

I am very confused by this. In the past, if I wanted fic about two characters from the fandom teaming up for whatever reason, I could nominate A and B, and that was fine. But now I can only do that if A/B or A&B is a canonical fandom tag? Or I have to nominate A & None and B & None separately? If A/B and A&B are canonical tags, and somebody else nominates those, does that mean the tagset will include all four of A & None, B & None, A/B, and A&B? What do people do if A/B isn't canonical -- is it okay for them to request A & None and B & None, then ask for the ship? And if somebody offers A/B, can they be matched to people who asked for A & None or B & None, or only people who asked for the ship? What about vice versa?

I'm not sure there's a way to phrase this that won't come across as a flounce, so all I can do is say that I don't intend it to be a flounce. But it sounds to me like this change means that NPT isn't really the right exchange for me anymore, so I'll probably bow out.

Why is the anonymous period so short?

Hi! I have participated in past years; I was following the LJ comm, and have now subscribed to this one. Do I also need to join it, or is subscribing sufficient?
