Just under 2.5 hours until signups close!

I'll run through matching etc and check for issues tomorrow.

I just had to turn down a bunch of nominations for non-poly relationships for Mass Effect, so make sure you've got the correct relationships selected.

There's a little over 24 hours left for nominations -- I'd like to close them before midnight (eastern time), simply to avoid having to stay up that late. Once they close I'll go through and sort out any remaining questions I have about nominations, and if you guys notice anything is in the wrong fandom, etc, please point it out.

Current remaining questions:

-I've got a Game Grumps relationship that's Char A/Char B/Char A. I'm disinclined to accept this tag if there's no reasonable in-canon expectation of character duplication.

-I have two Jane Austen books nominated under the general Jane Austen works tag instead of their individual book. I'd prefer to split these out into separate books. Is this OK?

If anyone has nominations that haven't been approved, can you please message/comment/email with them? I'm trying to work with AO3 support, but I can't give them names of tags I can't see.

This post will be updated through the end of the nominations period with any nominations that I have questions about. Please feel free to either respond to questions in comments or by DMing or emailing me.

If you see a problem with something you nominated (most likely an issue with the fandom association), please comment and I'll try and fix it.

10/3/16:

Luke Cage/Jessica Jones/Misty Knight: This was nominated under the fandom 'Marvel Television Universe.' Similar fandom tags are synned to MCU, and any current Marvel TV shows are considered subfandoms of that megafandom, there will be no separate megafandom for the TV shows.

& relationships - The & (instead of /) relationship tag format is for 'friendship, family, or platonic relationships.' I'm not sure if this relationship tag was selected on purpose or by accident? I know there was one nominated that's since disappeared, but there's one in LOT that's still nominated.

10/4/16:

'Gundam SEED & Cosmic Era Gundam' is recognized by the AO3 as simply Gundam SEED. Please let me know if using just that for the fandom name will present an issue.

I've also cleared out all the character nominations, to make it easier to see the nominated relationships. I tried and I definitely can't edit the nominations form to get rid of the character nomination option now that noms are open, but I won't be approving any character tags (I was doing it earlier for speed), so this should help some.

10/5/16:
Evil Dead: I've got a Linda, a Linda Bates, and a Linda Bates-Emery. Are these 2 different people or 1 person?

Kingdom Hearts: I have two relationship nominations that consist solely of Final Fantasy characters. I never made it more than partway through KH1 or FFX, so would these be better served in one of the Final Fantasy fandoms?

And a general question, that I think has come up in more than one nomination: relationships with Person A/Person B/Person A. I can't find if this has come up in past rounds, but I want to say that this is limited to fandoms where canon could plausibly allow it (e.g. Stargate), and not, say, RPF. Thoughts?

Hey, everyone! Nominations for the tagset are now open.

Tagset is here.

ETA 2: A couple of people have asked about this, so a quick note: you can ignore the character fields, those won't be involved for matching. I think they got added when I was fixing something else, and I don't want to edit it again in case something blows up. If you've submitted with characters don't worry about it, but if you haven't submitted yet no need to put them in.

Rules are the same as last time, but just in case, I've got the collection set up here.

Major dates are as follows:

Nominations open: Sept 24
Nominations close: Oct 12

Signups open: Oct 15
Signups close: Nov 7

Assignments go out: Nov 11
Assignments due: Jan 11 EOD

Pinch hits close: Jan 14 EOD
Collection opens: Jan 15 EOD
Reveal: Jan 19th EOD

EOD stands for End of Day - technically midnight that night, but with wiggle room (all Eastern Time). Please let me know if these dates work or if people might want more time for one or the other (nominations, signups, especially, but I'm not participating in any exchanges so I don't know what other deadlines are out there).

ETA: OK, looks like there are no objections to the dates above, so please go ahead and add the tumblr post to the reblog list.

Hi guys, I'm looking for someone to help out with holly_poly this year! I'm still in the throes of grad school, and may also possibly be starting a new job (fingers crossed), so I could use an assist! If you're interested, please DM or email me.

I have un-anonymized the collection; I should have done it last night but just couldn't stay up that late (ugh).

So that concludes this year's round of Holly Poly. Thank you to everyone who participated, especially our amazing pinch hitters!

The collection is now open!

If anyone sees anything wrong or has an issue, please feel free to message me, but I am going to bed and tomorrow is a workday for me, so responses will be when I can manage it.

We're still waiting on the last of the pinch hits to be finished. The collection will open as soon as possible (definitely before 1 am), but it's not going to be on the stroke of midnight.

OK, time is officially up for anyone who hasn't asked for an extension. I've defaulted everyone remaining, and I will be sending out pinch hits in batches to everyone who signed up to pinch hit. If you asked for an extension but seem to have been defaulted, please forward me the message where I confirmed your extension, but I did double check my email for each person I defaulted.

Hopefully we'll be able to get pinch hits for everyone and we can open the archive on time.

Hi guys, I'm having a lot of people emailing me saying they thought the deadline was tomorrow, and I think I may have screwed it up too in one of the posts (though it was definitely clear in the original assignments post), so I'm going to extend an across-the-board 24 hour extension, to midnight eastern time tomorrow night. Again, unless I go to bed first. But you now have 25 hours and change -- if you defaulted recently because you thought you suddenly didn't have enough time, but might be able to finish now, you can probably be reassigned, most of the recent pinch hits haven't been picked up yet (that said, if you can pinch hit, please add yourself to the list!).

Hopefully that will help.

Give or take. If your gift is submitted and you have some time, please consider adding your name to the pinch hit list! We have a couple ones still open, and potential for a few more once the deadline hits.

One week (and about 11 hours) until works are due!

The 2015 collection should now be open for those early birds who are already done with their assignment!

For those of you who are still working on your gifts, you have just under a month: until January 12th.
