OK, in an effort to keep us on track, timeline-wise, I am opening nominations. The tag set is viewable here
, and the link to submitting nominations is at the top of that page, or here
. I've pre-seeded it with the freeforms for media type, so people should just need to nominate fandoms and characters. It's set to allow the maximum number of nominations for each, which is 20.
Nominations will be open through the 24th. Hopefully if nominations get cleared up as we go along, signups can open on the 25th, but if not definitely before November. Signups will be open for two weeks following. From there I'm still playing it by ear, but it's probably all going to just be pushed back a week, unless by some sort of miracle I'm able to manage no delay between signups ending and being able to send assignments out.
I can either ETA this post as we go to address metafandoms as they come up in nominations, or start a new post specifically for it. If anyone has experience modding nominations and wants to help, please let me know and I can add you to the tag set.
Metafandoms ETA: ( ETA 1 )( ETA 2 )( ETA 3 )
ETA 4: A couple mergers: "Tales of Vesperia" relationships will get moved to "Tales of Series," all Final Fantasy fandoms are now in one place, "Fire Emblem: Kakusei | Fire Emblem: Awakening" relationships will get moved to "Fire Emblem Series."
Right now Game of Thrones and ASOIAF are separate -- does anyone have an issue with those two merging? I will merge in 24 hours unless I hear otherwise.
And right now the only non-approved relationship is a Bucky/Clint/Natasha tag which was nominated for All Media Types. So far it's the only Marvel AMT tag. I can add this to 616 instead, if that'll work. That's the only comic that all three of them would be in.
If anyone sees anything else that might need to be merged, please feel free to comment here, or DM me.
I can't see all the nominations at once, which is making sorting through nominations trickier than anticipated. What this means is that a nominated fandom might be approved, but then later replaced with a higher-level metafandom. If that happens, it will be announced first.
