Hey, guys! Signups close in a little under 4 days @ 11:55 PM PDT on Thursday, July 27. Here's a countdown.
Signups are now closing at 12:00 PM PDT on Sunday, July 30th.
As a reminder, if you choose more than 2 fandoms for a single request/offer, you can match on any combination of those fandoms. We strongly encourage you to spread out your prompts and other optional details across all those possible combinations. We've seen a few signups with holes in those areas.
We also wanted to remind everyone that you can choose only 2 fandoms per request/offer. So if you'd like to see Pacific Rim crossed with Alias OR Stranger Things, but you aren't interested in a crossover between Alias and Stranger Things, you should put Pacific Rim/Alias in one request and Pacific Rim/Stranger Things in another request.
All of that said, optional details are ultimately a courtesy to your artist or author. We strongly encourage the use of optional details/prompts, particularly in an exchange like this one, but we can't force you to use them. If you choose not to leave optional details for a particular crossover match, your artist or author will be free to create whatever they want, so long as they mind your DNWs.

DEAR CROSSOVERING CREATOR | FAQ
If you're new to exchanges at AO3 and confused about how sign-ups work, read this tutorial about signing up for gift exchanges.
As a reminder: You're allowed to choose multiple fandoms from within a greater franchise in a single request/offer, but we cannot prevent AO3 from matching on those 2 fandoms. For example, you might offer Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but if someone else requests Stargate Atlantis and Stargate SG-1, AO3 might pair you.
Put short, if you prefer to receive or create a crossover/fusion between 2 distinctly separate franchises, we encourage you to refrain from putting 2+ sub-franchise fandoms in a single request/offer.
For more information about requests and offers for this exchange, please continue reading. ( … )
These letters are 100% optional but highly encouraged (particularly due to the nature of this exchange). If you've never participated in an exchange like this before, a Dear Creator Letter is a post at your DW/LJ/Tumblr/Blog, etc. detailing your requests and giving your assigned creator ideas for possible art or fic. These letters also include your likes, dislikes, and any triggers you migh thave. You can link them here, as well as in your sign-up form. How you format or write them is entirely up to you.
If you have any triggers (things that may cause you harm if you read about them), we highly recommend that you make that clear in your letter as well as in the optional details on your signup. Not every participant clicks through to letters, and this is the best way to cover your bases so that your creator will not unintentionally use your triggers.
For more info and great examples of what we mean check out the following links: The Yuletide FAQ or letters from previous years.
Keep in mind that letters are completely optional, which also means that creators are in no way required to follow the optional details. The only requirements are that they use the fandoms you matched on and that they respect your DNWs. Essentially: Optional details are optional.
If you are posting a link to your letter here, we ask that you copy/paste the following when you comment:

They came out of the factory on the same day. They were packed in the same box, sent to the same shop, displayed on the same shelf. But now somebody's bought the lady and left the knight behind. Nobody understands what a disaster this is, except maybe the robot on the shelf above...
Hi, Cody here! I'm the mod over at victurio, a community for shippers of Viktor Nikiforov and Yuri Plisetsky.
This is safe space for Victurios to share their thoughts, works, and favorite Victor x Yuri content. We are still settling in (and the mod is still learning how to use DW properly), but in time, we hope to have--
- Weekly prompts to inspire you! (After you join, here is a post where you can throw in your ideas for future prompts.)
- Fic and art rec lists!
- Discussion threads!
- What else??? Your suggestions are always welcome in my inbox!
Membership is moderated due to recent events in other YOI communities, as well as the fact that Victurio is a rarepair and can be controversial for some fans.
Most of all, this community is to be a wank free, hate free, and anti free space. If you are interested in joining, please read our rules first!
FFmpeg is a powerful tool for manipulating audiovisual files. Unfortunately, it also has a steep learning curve, especially for users unfamiliar with a command line interface. This app helps users through the command generation process so that more people can reap the benefits of FFmpeg.
Each button displays helpful information about how to perform a wide variety of tasks using FFmpeg. To use this site, click on the task you would like to perform. A new window will open up with a sample command and a description of how that command works. You can copy this command and understand how the command works with a breakdown of each of the flags.
FFmpeg is a free, open source tool that works on the command line and lets you do stuff like:
- Change codecs (transcode)
- Change formats
- Filter stuff
- Create GIFs and thumbnails
- Normalize/equalize audio
- Read/extract captions
- Make test patterns
- Fix audio that's fallen out of sync
- Join or split files
- Play an image sequence
I have used FFmpeg recipes in the past and it's great how much it can do, especially in combination with youtube-dl which makes it easy to download video from a ton of sites -- YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo, and many others. I hope other vidders find ffmprovisr helpful in their work!
Until then, please make sure to watch this space. Although we don't expect to have as many questionable fandoms as we have in previous years, there may still be questions we have for nominators, so be on the lookout. We will begin approving fandoms right away and will continue through the next day or so until we have a complete tagset. We plan on getting the tagset up as soon as we can, thus giving everyone time to peruse the list of fandoms before sign-ups open.
You may notice during this process that some of your fandoms will be listed as rejected or approved at AO3. But, please keep in mind that this does not necessarily reflect what will or won't appear in the final tag set. (Should your fandom be listed as approved, it likely is. Should your fandom be listed as rejected, it may be approved under a different tag.) Once the tag set is complete, we will make it public and post here to let everyone know that the review period is over and if there are any issues or discrepancies with your nominations, you can let us know at that time.
Thanks again for nominating!
