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).

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!

Hello--I mistyped and accidentally nominated Aral Vorkosigan/Lady Vorrutyer Vorkosigan/Ges Vorkosigan for Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold. That should be Aral Vorkosigan/Lady Vorrutyer Vorkosigan/Ges Vorrutyer. Is it possible to get that fixed? I'm so sorry!

For both Pokemon Adventures, and Pokemon anime, I'm pretty sure the ships without (anime) or (Pokemon Adventures) after them belong in Pokemon Main games only.

Thank you for all the hard work, mod!

Couple of Rogue One doubles:

Cassian Andor & Davits Draven
Cassian Andor & General Draven
(General Draven = Davits Draven)

Bodhi Rook/Galen Erso
Galen Erso/Bodhi Rook

Mon Mothma/Senator Pamlo
Mon Mothma/Tynnra Pamlo
(Senator Palmo = Tynnra Pamlo)

I somehow misspelled Mon Mothma's name on the Tynnra version of the nom /o\ Feel free to delete that one and keep the Senator Pamlo version if that's easier.

I spotted some tag migration. Under Love Live! School Idol Project are:

Kunikida Hanamaru/Kurosawa Ruby
Kunikida Hanamaru/Kurosawa Ruby/Tsushima Yoshiko
Kunikida Hanamaru/Tsushima Yoshiko

Those were all nominated under Love Live! Sunshine!!, which is a spin-off of Love Live! School Idol Project focusing on different characters.

I spotted Diego Luna/Jabba the Hutt under Star Wars RPF - should that be under Crossover Fandom instead? As tickled as I am by seeing it in Star Wars RPF, Jabba isn't a real person to my knowledge.

I nominated 'Rosemary & Thyme (tv)', which I now realise is not the canonical title, so it has ended up in the uncategorised section. I think it should be 'Rosemary and Thyme (tv)'. Sorry!

Hey, there's a bit of weirdness going on with the Fallouts, so I thought I might mention them now! Not even sure they're big enough to bother with trying to fix, but might as well make sure they're at least known of.

Paladin Danse/Male Lone Wanderer is under Fallout 4, but it's actually an intra-series crossover: Danse is FO4-only, and the Lone Wanderer is FO3-only.

Paladin Danse & Male Lone Wanderer is the gen version of the above, but appears under Fallout 3's tag instead.

Robert Joseph MacCready/Male Sole Survivor in Fallout 3 is a duplicate of the same ship in Fallout 4, where it's meant to be. (Technically MacCready does also appear in FO3, but unless the nominator very specifically wanted crossover shota with timeskip shenanigans it's probably just a mistake and/or tag migration.)

Gildor Inglorion/Maglor | Makalaurë (Silmarillion) is listed under Silmarillion, but it's a crossover. Gildor Inglorion only appears in The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien (and Maglor only appears in the Silmarillion).

I already voted for X-Men movies being merged with disambiguation tags for people that want to be specific, but there was something else I wanted to mention.

In the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past there are two plots going on. One is set in the future of the original timeline and the other is set in the past and details the point where the two timelines diverge. Splitting the timelines into two different fandoms would essentially divide one movie between two fandoms and could turn ships into crossovers that wouldn't otherwise be. Another point is that since the timeline doesn't actually change until Days of Future Past that means that the events of X-Men: First Class happened for both timelines.

Splitting the movieverse fandom into original and alternate timelines would also cause a lot more work for you. You'd have to take all the relationships from movieverse, figure out if the person wanted original, alternate, or if it's a crossover, delete the tag, add the new tag, then associate it. If you merged you could just delete X-Men: Alternate Timeline Movies from the tag set and associate them with the X-Men Movierverse. This way people that want a specific version can have their way and people that are interested in the relationship in either timeline can have their way too.

I know for myself that one of the things that I was potentially interested in was seeing a particular relationship in the other timeline that it wasn't depicted in.

Even though I'm strongly against splitting, I'll make the list of which of my nominations go where. It's going to take awhile though.

I agree with this. So many of the ships already in the overall movie-verse tag could go either way between the two timelines and ships with Logan included hold the hard task of trying to decided what timeline he gets put in since he 'remembers' both. That and it may be difficult to get everyone who nominated back in time to show what ship they wanted from which timeline (and could knock out some ships others already thought were part of the tag set. I myself didn't re-nominate Peter Maximoff relationships under the Alternative Timeline because they're in the general Movieverse tag).

Not a duplicate, but in Doctor Who there is "Third Doctor & The Master (Delago)" which should be "(Delgado)". Not a big deal if it can't be fixed; everyone will know what's intended.

I just nominated some Frozen ships with characters from the books, figured I should pop in and clarify who I mean.

Marisol is from the book "A Warm Welcome"; she's the queen of Eldora.
Maren is from the book "A Secret Admirer"; she's Elsa's dressmaker.

I'm not one of the nominators but I noticed this in Books & Lit under the Cainsville - Kelley Armstrong fandom:

Ricky Gallagher/Olivia Taylor-Jones/Gabriel Walsh
Olivia Taylor-Jones/Gabriel Walsh/Ricky Gallagher

It's the same characters each time but the names are in a different order.

There are two ships that currently appear in both the "Jeeves - PG Wodehouse" fandom and the "Psmith - PG Wodehouse" fandom. Technically, Rupert Psmith/Bertram Wooster and Reginald Jeeves/Rupert Psmith don't belong in either fandom, in the same way that, say, Sif/Bucky Barnes wouldn't belong in either the "Thor Movies" or "Captain America Movies" fandoms. However, as they are a shared universe, similar to MCU, you could merge both fandoms' pairings into the already canonical "PG Wodehouse - Works" megatag.

Thank you for doing all this! It seems like a bear.

Argh. I'm the nominator for Unbeatable Squirrel Girl but I've just noticed that someone has nominated a ship from it that I didn't under Marvel 616 - Tomas Lara-Perez/Ken Shiga - I really don't know what the right solution is* but I thought I should point it out.

*Off the top of my head the possibilities that occur to me are: leave it all as is, my USG noms could be folded into 616, this ship could move into USG. I'd be equally happy with any of those but I don't know how the other person would feel/what would work best for the tag set overall/what's even possible AO3-wise.
