Feedback was overwhelmingly in favour of leaving signups on Dreamwidth and moving posting to AO3. Thanks to everyone who replied last post! This means that you need an AO3 account to participate in got-exchange from now on. You don't necessarily need a DW account - I'm willing to let people sign up with anon comments or Open ID, as long as you provide an email address and your AO3 name.

I needed a little bit to figure out a schedule because I'm moving this month and the next weeks are therefore busy, but here it is:


Signups open: September 20th
Signups close: September 30th, 11.59am UTC
Assignments go out: October 3rd (at the latest)
Obligatory check-in post: November 3rd
Deadline: November 14th, 11.59pm UTC
Reveals: November 21st, 11.59pm UTC

Attention: Signups close on September 30th at noon UTC, which is early morning for those of you in the Americas. Please take that into consideration if you're in one of those timezones - you'll probably want to make sure you're signed up by the 29th. The posting deadline and reveals deadline will be at midnight UTC.

Signups will open next week. The signup form will pretty much stay the same as in the past. If you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

All announcements will continue to be cross-posted on tumblr, so if you use tumblr more than DW, you might want to follow the got-exchange tumblr.

Challenge Post

This weeks theme/prompt is :minimalistic
This challenge is focused on really making simple icon. This does not mean the work that goes into them is easy, but more the icons will be simple and clear without a lot of texutre, text or fancy cropping/composition
