 You should have already received your assignment. If there are any issues, please email us at chocolateboxmod@gmail.com.

Initial pinch hits will be going out in the next 24 hours! We will also upload a beta post at that point.

 A reminder that signups close at 11:59pm EST today!

Once signups close we will be reviewing the signups to ensure that there are no duplicate fandoms in signups, and that all tags used are those that are associated with the fandom requested/offered. We have contacted those who were affected by the bug that allowed people to select any tag in the tagset and asked them to amend. If, at the time signups close there are signups with duplicate fandoms or signups where tags weren't amended, we will be amending the signups to make them compliant with the rules. This mostly will mean merging fandoms and amending/deleting tags improperly used, but if your signup does not have enough unique fandoms and offers to qualify, we will have to delete it so that matching can take place. Please check your signup and amend if your signup has duplicate fandoms and/or you have been contacted by us about issues by the time signups close!

Finally, we have been receiving a number of comments expressing concerns about the eligibility of various tags in the tagset. We're afraid that we cannot touch the tagset at this stage. If you think a person, character, or prompt should not be allowed in Chocolatebox, please let us know at the end of this round, so we can open it up for discussion.

Otherwise, let's see if we can break 600 signups!
chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
We're a couple of days into signups, and we currently have over 270 signups! How many people do you think will sign up before 11:59pm EST on the 7th?

Also, we have some quick news for everyone.
  1. Matching is "OR". This means that for someone to match to your request, they need only offer one relationship that you are requesting, and are only required to write one relationship that you requested.  Please keep that in mind when signing up.
  2. Fandoms must be unique. We have learned that due to a change not taking in the form, it is allowing people to request and offer a fandom multiple times or not include a fandom at all. We have contacted everyone so far that has offered or requested a fandom multiple times or not included one at all and asked them to amend their signups. If there are duplicates by the time signups close we will be forced to either amend a signup so as to merge a duplicated request, or delete it if there are not enough fandoms to be eligible. Please fix this before we have to, as this will slow down everyone getting their assignments.
  3. There was also an issue where you could offer any relationship in the tagset regardless of fandom association. This has been fixed, but we haven't checked the 197 signups that could have been affected by this yet. Please ensure that your signup only contains relationships in a particular fandom before signups close, as we will be checking and contacting you about it.
chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
We've been notified that there was an error where you could select any relationship in the tagset under a request for any fandom in the tagset. We've subsequently fixed that.

Please go through your signup and check to make sure that the relationships nominated are associated with the fandom, with reference to the tagset. We will be checking the signups once they have closed to make sure that all relationships nominated in a fandom belong to that fandom, and contacting anyone who has not fixed their signup.

If you can't amend your signup due to the change, please leave a comment here and we will fix it on our end.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
Happy new year (or close enough to it to count!), dear Chocolatiers! Welcome to signups!

You can find the signup form here. You need a minimum of 3 fandoms to request and 4 to offer, at least one relationship for each fandom to request and two to offer, and up to ten for requests and offers. You also need to choose whether you want fanfic, fanart, or you would like either of them. Here is the tagset. If you cannot find your fandom, please look in "Uncategorized Fandoms". If you are offering a fandom with only one ship nominated, you need to tick the "Any" checkbox for that fandom.

Requests are currently visible but you are free to edit your signup until 11:59pm EST on 7 January 2019. We may be a little late in closing signups, but please do not rely on this.

A reminder:
  • Character A & Character B = genfic
  • Character A/Character B = shipfic.

Please do not mix these two up!

Also, as a reminder, please be careful about which tag you use, especially when there are characters with very similar names!

Merry Chocolateboxmas and we look forward to your signups!

We've closed nominations for the tagset! Currently we're at 1,617 fandoms with 12,711 relationships. Please check the tagset carefully for any duplications, migrations, or tags that just don't belong in a fandom at all. We need your fandom knowledge to help make this tagset as good as it can be!

If we have missed fixing up a tag or fandom, let us know! There's been a lot going on on our side and it's entirely probable we've missed something. We do ask for patience, as we are really struggling to load the admin console, but please let us know if we have forgotten or missed something.

Finally, some outstanding queries.

Fate series
These are the nominations, exactly as they appear on our side:
Fate/EXTRA
Enkidu/Gilgamesh (Fate)
Enkidu & Gilgamesh (Fate)
Enkidu | Lancer/Gilgamesh | Archer
Enkidu/Gilgamesh (Fate/EXTRA)

Fate/Grand Order
Enkidu & Gilgamesh (Fate/Grand Order)
Enkidu | False Lancer/Gilgamesh | Archer
Enkidu | Lancer/Gilgamesh | Archer (Fate/Grand Order)

Fate/strange fake
Enkidu & Gilgamesh (Fate/strange fake)
Enkidu | False Lancer/Gilgamesh | Archer (Fate/strange fake)

Fate/Zero
Enkidu & Gilgamesh (Fate/Zero)

Do Enkidu and Gilgamesh appear in all of these games? And we think that there's duplication inside each fandom set, but when we tried to work out whether you could have a Lancer and a False Lancer we got very confused. Help?

Kamen Rider
Do you want these nominations kept separate or merged?

Marvel
Could the nominator please let us know if you mean Comics? We think you do, but we're not sure.

Mary Poppins
Do we want books or AMT?

Namesake
Original Character(s)/Original Character(s) - Just checking, is this what you mean?

Original Work
Foster Father/Previously Abuser Foster Daughter Who He Grooms - Do you mean "Abuser" or "Abused"?

Power Rangers
We have nominations for the entire franchise and separate titles. How do you want this dealt with?

Pretty Brunet Deer Person Trying To Seduce a Sulky Reaper (Tumblr Post)
We think this is what you mean. Are you nominating the illustration, the story, both, or something else entirely?

Supergirl
We're getting conflicting advice, and so we'd thought we'd put it up for a clear discussion. Is Supergirl part of DC Arrowverse or not?

The Hobbit
We have nominations for the AMT and the movies - do you want these merged?

Twilight
Do we want Books or AMT?

Unassociated Relationship
Thrawn | Mitth'raw'nuruodo/Frina | Chaf'rin'asyr - Which Thrawn series does this belong to?

We Are In Fics Universe (WAIFU)
Is this what you mean? We're not sure.

X-Men (Movieverse)
Which timeline do you mean?
chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
First up, the tagset will be closing at 11:59pm EST on December 28th!

Secondly, we ask for your patience as we process any tags that need to be amended, removed or associated differently. We have been having difficulty loading the admin console that allows us to make these changes, and the difficulty spiked dramatically once we went over 9,000 tags. We also ask that if you are nominating to please check the tagset before doing so.
chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
We're back with more mod queries! We have had to reject nominations that have been on two of these posts already so that we can progress past the Already Approved Fandoms backlog. If your nominations appear on this post, please sort it out so that we can continue to approve the tagset.

We have also merged the Marvel Netflix series together. As it turns out, "marvel netflix" is a canonical tag; we cannot change the capitalization. On the upside, it appears to be associated to the correct media!

It's been three days since nominations opened and we're already at more than 5,000 tags across more than 800 fandoms!

We have some queries to be addressed so that we can do one last push and finish approving all of the backlogged tags.

Crossover Fandom
  • Donald Duck & Daffy Duck - Is this a crossover between the Disney and Warners Bros iterations or something else?
  • Emony Dax/Leonard "Bones" McCoy - Which McCoy do you mean?
  • John Constantine/Lucifer Morningstar (Lucifer TV) - which John Constantine do you mean?
  • Lando Calrissian & Ben Solo | Kylo Ren - do you have a preference for canon point for Lando?
  • Lara Croft/Diana (Wonder Woman) - which Lara Croft do you mean?
  • Loki (Marvel) & Q (Star Trek) - which Marvel Loki do you mean?
  • Mickey Mouse/Bugs Bunny - is this a crossover between the Disney and Warner Bros iterations or something else?
  • William Bodie (The Professionals)/Spock (Star Trek) - which version of Spock do you mean?

Fantastic Four (Movies 2005-2007)
  • Amara Perera/Victor von Doom - Amara Perera seems to be a comic book character created in 2015. Please move to Crossover Fandom.
  • Tony Stark & Victor Von Doom - Tony Stark does not appear in this series. Please move to Crossover Fandom
  • Tony Stark/Victor von Doom - Tony Stark does not appear in this series. Please move to Crossover Fandom

Historical RPF
This is a very broad category, and encompasses a lot of the other RPF fandoms by definition. Do the other historical RPF people want to go into this category? Or does the nominator wish to split it up into smaller RPF categories?

Marvel Cinematic Universe and Associated Television Shows
  • Characters from Agents of Shield, The Defenders, etc etc. - Do you want to nominate them into the Marvel Cinematic Universe or into individual shows?
  • Tony Stark & Johnny Storm - Johnny Storm does not appear in the MCU. Please move to Crossover Fandom
  • Tyrion Lannister & Peter Quill - Tyrion Lannister does not appear in the MCU. Please move to Crossover Fandom

Stanton & Barling - E.M. Powell
  • Aelred Barling (Stanton & Barling) - this is a character. Please nominate a & or / ship.
  • Hugo Stanton (Stanton & Barling) - this is a character. Please nominate a & or / ship.

Superhero Comics (Marvel Comics, DC Comics)
We have nominations for both an overarching fandom (aka "Marvel (Comics)" and "DC Comics") as well as individual titles. How do you want this done?

Stay tuned, because there will be more admin posts as we progress!

Finally, a reminder: if you are anonymous and you wish for your comment to be unscreened, please remember to put your AO3 name into your comment. Thank you!

Chocolate Box lives and is now accepting nominations! This year you can nominate up to seven fandoms and seven relationships.

You can find the tag set here!

In terms of nominations generally:
  • just about any fandom is eligible;
  • Please remember that "Character A/Character B" is shipfic, "Character A & Character B" is genfic, and "Character A/Character B & Character C" is shipfic that also has a gen component;
  • If you are nominating a character that has multiple versions across canons, please specify which one;
  • There is no limit on the number of characters that can be in a combination other than the AO3 character limit;
  • Objects can be nominated in tags;
  • 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 general administrative enquiries! If you have any questions, drop them here!

Welcome everyone to Chocolate Box 2019!

Nominations will open 18 December 2018, so now is a timely opportunity to let you all know about the changes that will occur this round.

First up, fewer nominations. For those who don't remember, last year our tagset was so large that I couldn't load the admin console. Chocolate Box's tagset has always been large enough that it is difficult to approve, but last year's experiences mean that this year we have to try something different. This year, nominations have been reduced to seven fandoms, and seven relationships for each. We'll assess the number of nominations for next year depending on how this goes, and hopefully we will be able to inch the numbers for nominations back up in future years, or reassess the configuration of the nominations (such as fewer fandoms and more ships, or vice versa).

Secondly, automatic screening of anonymous comments without AO3 names. We will be reading them, but an anonymous comment that does not contain the commenter's AO3 name will remain screened.

Finally, you may have noticed the use of "we" in this post. That's because Chocolate Box has grown too large for me to run on my own, so I have appointed a comod. Say hello to [personal profile] thecatmod, my new partner in crime!

See you all on the 18th for tagset nomination!

[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
All creators should be revealed (though if they are not, give AO3 a bit, as there's a number of works to be revealed). We didn't quite manage to get everyone who turned in their assignment a treat, but we got very close. Here is the treatless spreadsheet - please feel free to keep working at it.

Thanks everyone! Please keep reading and commenting, especially if you haven't yet commented on your own gift!
chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
We have one post-reveal pinch hit! If you are able to fill it, please do so and email me the link so that I may tick it off.

Thank you!

The archive is revealed! Over one thousand stories in over 400 fandoms! Well done, everyone!

Please go through the collection, comment on works, and share the joy of new works in your fandoms!

The archive will remain open for accepting further works as treats. We have made significant progress on the treatless spreadsheet and the more the merrier.

Otherwise, have fun! Creator reveals is at 5am on the 19th.
chocolateboxmod: (Default)
[personal profile] chocolateboxmod
The collection has been reviewed for obvious placeholders and there is one unofficial pinch hit, with possibly more to come. I'm not able to formally assign it to someone, so once you finish it please email me with a link. If you can pick it up, please leave a comment here with your AO3 name so that I may keep track.

Finally, please remember that creators are anonymous until 19 February, and any creator notes will need to not contain any reference to your identity (tumblr, twitter, etc) until the 19th. Thank you!
