Nominations
Nominations continue until 11:59pm EST on December 29 2016. As there has been a lot of mod posts of late, here is the tagset for easy access!

I will be doing a post about clarifications at the end of the nomination period as well, so please be around for that (with the exception of Crossovers, which is covered below).

Crossovers
The tagset approval form on the admin side has a hard limit of the number of tags you can see where the fandom has been approved but individual tags have not been approved yet (either because they've been added since or there are issues with the tag.) I've reached that limit! As such I'm currently unable to approve any more tags for fandoms that have been already accepted until the crossovers have been sorted.

Here's how you can help:
  1. Please nominate crossovers into Crossover Fandom and not individual fandoms. I'm aware that the form says you can nominate crossovers under any fandom, but that's not the case for this exchange! There are some downright weird associations with tags on AO3's end and nominations are shown on my screen randomly, so putting them in Crossover Fandom drastically reduces the number of steps I need to do on my end to fix it.
  2. If you are nominating crossovers and there are multiple continuities (Marvel, DC, Holmes etc etc), please specify what continuity a character belongs to. Please err on the side of caution if you're not sure and be specific! There are a lot of Lokis in Marvel, for example, and not being specific may disappoint.
If by the time the tag set closes crossovers are nominated in the wrong place or it's unclear which continuity you mean I will start rejecting tags so that I can approve the rest of the tagset.

Star Wars
  • If you nominated All Media Types, I have not rejected anything in that nomination yet. Please move your nomination(s) over to the correct fandoms.
  • Please go through the tag set and see if there are any duplications. This is especially the case for things like Rogue One, where there were 33 duplicates, and so it is likely I have missed something.
  • There's a nomination for "Rise of Empire Era" - can someone give more information as to what canon(s) this comprises of? It's very difficult to do a search on! - EDIT: I have an answer: could the nominator please amend your nomination(s) to be Prequels, Clone Wars or the other source(s) of canon you mean?
X-Men Movies
  • I am still taking opinions on how to deal with the alternate timelines. So far I have 2 votes for merging all movies into one fandom and use disambiguation (that is, the brackets at the end of each name in a tag) to specify what continuity something is, and one for separating the tags into timelines.
  • No matter what option we end up using, there is going to be a lot of tag deletion and recreating to reflect continuity. That is going to take some time. If you could help by at the end of nominations doing a list of which tags belong in which continuity (preferably with each tag on a new line!) that would save me a ton of time and be greatly appreciated!

Fandom Merging
I have merged the following fandoms, please go through and make sure that there are no duplicates:
  • Doctor Who
  • Terminator: Genisys
  • Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.
Also let me know if there are any duplicates generally!

Thanks guys, you're all the best!

  • Clint Barton/Deadpool
  • Peter Parker/Wade Wilson

Star Wars

There doesn't seem to be a clear consensus, so I'm opening it up to a vote. Currently the options I'm considering are:
  • Merging all nominations into All Media Types, with which individual series you mean to be specified in optional details;
  • Merging all nominations into All Media Types, with individual series to be specified in the tag after the character names (i.e. Character A & Character B (Source));
  • Approving by era (Prequel Trilogy, Original Trilogy, Clone Wars, Rogue One, The Force Awakens, Rebels and anything else that comes up).
As apparently you can only do polls if you have paid time, I have set up the second best option: roll calls Please comment in the correct subthread with your preference. The one with the most votes by 28 December is the one that I will do.

Have fun and keep nominating!

EDIT: NEVER MIND STAR WARS FANS WE HAVE A POLL. GO VOTE.

EDIT 2: ...or not because I can't get it to work. I'll have another go once I get back from Christmas Things. Sorry, guys!

  • Harleen Quinzel & Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?

 It's a bit early, but I figured "why not?"

You can find the tag set here! Nominations close at 11:59pm EST on December 29.

In terms of nominations:
  • just about any fandom is eligible;
  • Please remember that "Character A/Character B" is shipfic while "Character A & Character B" is genfic
  • There is no limit on the number of characters that can be in a combination other than the AO3 character limit;
  • Crossovers must be nominated in "Crossover Fandom", which is already nominated. Crossovers that are not nominated in this fandom will be deleted.
  • Original Works are okay and I have nominated that fandom for you already;
  • You will be required to offer two tags per fandom on signups (unless only one relationship tag is nominated), so please keep that in mind when nominating.
Please watch this comm for updates about clarifications, merging of fandoms, and my getting increasingly drunk as we head towards Christmas! DRUNK MOD BEST MOD.

Last few hours before nominations close! And some more queries:
  • Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: I've been told that this is not the correct tag for this set! Is anyone able to clarify which tags go into which fandom?
  • Tolkien: Would this be a correct summation of where each tag should fall?
  • DCU: I am considering nixing this category and putting the comicverse characters into DC Comics, and the toonverse into its various categories. Are there any objections?
  • Star Wars - All Media Types: Given that these look to be a mixture of comics and Rebels, and therefore probably wouldn't fall into the movies category, I'm happy to keep them here. Is it too confusing if I do?
  • Undertale/Utena, Undertale/Madoka, SGverse/Harry Potter: these are crossover ships and need to be moved to the Crossover Fandom, please!
I am also going to be merging over the next few hours:
  • Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X & Final Fantasy X-2
  • Les Miserables - AMT and Les Miserables - Victor Hugo
If there is anything you'd like merged, now is a great time to raise it! Otherwise I won't be doing another one of these posts until after 11:59pm EST, as that's when the tag set closes for nominations. (And when I will have gone to the bottle shop to get the alcohol I'll need to deal with the mod console.)

Some more issues arising out of the tagset:
  •  Undertale/Utena and Undertale/Madoka ships - these are crossover ships and need to nominated as "Crossover Fandom". Please move your nominations for these crossover ships from Utena and Madoka to Crossover Fandoms.
  • Persona 3 and Persona 4: There are some ships between P3 and P4 characters. I appreciate that there are a number of games that cross over the two, and P4 is a sequel to P3 - did you want me to merge these into a larger category? Otherwise the P3/4 ships will have to be nominated as "Crossover Fandom".
  • The Vampire Diaries - L.J. Smith: Was this what you intended to nominate? There are some characters in this nomination that belong only in the TV series and some relationships are different between TV series and books
  • Tales of Symphonia: Emil Castagnier, Ratatosk and Richter Abend only appear in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. DId you want a more general tag of Tales of Symphonia series?
  • MASH: I have an enquiry about whether the nominator meant to nominate "Erin/Hunnicutt/B. J. Hunnicutt". Is the nominator able to confirm that this ship was what they wanted?
  • Merlin & Gary "Eggsy" Unwin: Is this meant to be a crossover ship with Merlin from the TV series or meant to be Eggsy & Merlin (Kingsman)?
  • Ba'al/Voldemort, and Hammond/McGonagall - these are crossover ships. Please nominate them under Crossover Fandom.
If you are interested in the MCU, there is a discussion post over here. I am particularly interested in how you would like me to deal with crossovers between the TV shows and movies.

The MCU + related TV shows tags are a bit messy! I'd like to fix them up for you, but I'm not sure which way to go with them.

I have two ideas, but I'm willing to listen to others. Which of these (or neither of them) is best for your fandom?:
  1. Consolidate the movies and tv shows into one overarching fandom - this would have the advantage of aligning MCU+MCTVU (or some other catchy name for the TV shows) to be like the rest of the tagset. If we go with this, what would you like the tag to be called?
  2. Separate the tagset into separate fandoms as proposed by this comment.
I'm not about to sort this out until the tagset closes at 11:59pm EST on the 29th, so there's plenty of time to work out which is better for you guys in the long run.

For all other fandoms, please refer to this post for outstanding issues.

 Some more issues:
  • The Vampire Diaries - L.J. Smith: Was this what you intended to nominate? There are some characters in this nomination that belong only in the TV series and some relationships are different between TV series and books.
  • Star Wars: Before I merge all the relationships from the movies into a "Star Wars series (Movies)" tag, are there any relationships that belong to the EU?
  • Stargate SG1 & Stargate Atlantis: Before I merge these into one overarching fandom, do you have a preference as to what I name the tag (as Stargate Universe would be rather confusing!)
  • Tales of Symphonia: Emil Castagnier, Ratatosk and Richter Abend only appear in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. DId you want a more general tag of Tales of Symphonia series?
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion: Which one? Maki Illustrious Makinami is a Rebuild character and the series are quite different. Do you want NG or Rebuild of Evangelion?
  • Superman - AMT: Do you want All Media Types for Superman?
  • Dragon Age: I am about to merge these categories into Dragon Age - All Media Types unless I hear otherwise.
  • Les Misérables: I genuinely have no clue how to handle this. So far the book and AMT has been nominated. What would you like me to do?
  • Fairy Tales & Related Fandoms: There does not seem to be any character combinations nominated here. Is that an error with the mod console or did you not nominate any character combos?
  • Leo Fitz/Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie: This has been nominated in MCU. Did you mean to nominate it in Agents of SHIELD?
I will be sorting out the MCU + related TV shows nominations over the next few hours, so while I'm in the mod console, what other things need fixing?

 Wow, you guys are really enthusiastic! I did not expect so many tags so soon! Tag set approval may slow down as AO3 seems to give me a time-out error message every time I try to approve tags, so that's inconvenient.

On that note, if you are nominating a ship that may be associated with multiple fandoms, please nominate it as Character A & Character B (Fandom Name) or Character A/Character B (Fandom Name). It will help me out a lot and mean that I spend less time in the mod console and more time approving tags.

At the moment, I have questions about the following:
  • Doctor Who: There are three different nominations for Doctor Who: Doctor Who; Doctor Who (1963); and Doctor Who (2005). Would you prefer the Doctor Who nominations to be under one heading ("Doctor Who") or split into Classic and New Who ("Doctor Who (1963)" and "Doctor Who (2005)")? 
  • Torchwood: Separate nomination to Doctor Who, or should it be part of the Doctor Who umbrella?
  • Dragon Age: So far I have seen two separate ways of nominating: Dragon Age - All Media Types; and Dragon Age - Inquisition. My preference is for Dragon Age - AMT, given that there are a lot of characters who appear in multiple games, books, etc.  I am interested in hearing discussion about this though!
  • HOBB, Robin - Works: The characters nominated under this header seem to belong to the trilogies focusing on Fitz and the Fool. Is this the tag you want or is there a more appropriate fandom tag?
  • Breaking Bad: There is a nomination for Will Graham & Jesse Pinkman. Is Will Graham really the character you meant here? 
  • Fate universe: How do you want this fandom nominated? As Fate/Stay Night and Related Fandoms, Fate/Zero, Fate/Extra etc etc, or is there a generic fandom header that you'd want to use? Or something different entirely?
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel the Series - currently these two series are nominated as one. Is there any preference about keeping them together or apart?
  • American Horror Story: Should these be nominated under "American Horror Story" or "American Horror Story: Freakshow", "American Horror Story: Asylum" etc etc.?
  • The Vampire Diaries and The Originals: My understanding is that these are spin-offs of each other. Is your preference to keep these nominations separate or together?
  • Cesare Borgia & Rodrigo Borgia: what fandom does this belong to?
  • Female Zee Captain/ Brisk Campaigner: what fandom does this belong to?
  • Laure Berthaud & François Roban: what fandom does this belong to?
Also, if there are any mistakes in the tagset currently, please let me know!

Nominations are now open for this year's exchange and will remain open until 11:59pm EST on 29 December 2015! The tag set is here.

A reminder, this is a relationship based exchange! This means that you are matching on both medium source (aka fic or art) and the type of story you want.
  • If you want shipfic, nominate your relationship as Character A/Character B.
  • If you want genfic, nominate the relationship as Character A&Character B.

There are no restrictions on what you can nominate. The only restrictions are that you can nominate up to 5 fandoms and up to 20 relationships.

Any issues, such as possible duplication of fandoms, I'll post them here, so please keep an eye out for them.

Otherwise I look forward to seeing what you nominate!
