It's been brought to my attention that the form allows you to request multiples of a fandom. Please do not do this, as matching will be difficult in this exchange as it is given the number of variables involved and it is against the rules of the exchange.

If you have duplicated or triplicated a fandom in your signup, please ensure that all fandoms are unique for your requests, and all fandoms are unique for your offers. If you have not done this by the time signups close, you will be contacted and given 12 hours to make the necessary changes. If you fail to do so in that time, your signup will be deleted.

I apologize for the inconvenience!

Just to clarify... I separated the ships i nominated in the crossover fandom into two different requests (basically one was for a game and one's for comics). Does that mean they have to be merged then?

Unrelated but... I keep getting an error that I need one or more freeform tags in my sign up and I can't see where I'm going wrong here... Help?

Is there a rule against sockpuppets in this exchange? Because there are a bunch of oddly-similar requests for Animorphs: all requesting some combination of the same three ships, all with no optional details, all linking directly to some random Tumblr or DW account with no Chocolate Box letter.

Make sure you're braced for more than your fair share of defaults then, because this person is signed up at least ten times, and there's no maybe about it.

New anon here... To expand on what the other said, this person is known for signing up with double-digit sock accounts, then defaulting, thus being written for without writing much or any fic themselves. They were busted in Yuletide 2014, and basically spent Yuletides 2015 and 2016 making themselves as difficult as possible, continuing to default and the like.

Several of the fandoms that I'm hoping to write for are filled with 'accounts' that are just links to empty tumblrs, with AO3 accounts that receive gifts without writing them, or write the very occasional fic for each other. It's really disheartening to be trying to figure out my treats only to find request after request is from a sock account of someone who isn't working in the spirit of the exchange. :/

I apologize but I am very confused

I interpreted "please don't duplicate a fandom" to mean "please don't request or offer 2 different relationships in the same fandom." However, the rules say we may request 1-20 character combinations, and we must offer 2-20 character combinations.

Am I correct in thinking that you mean, you can't duplicate the fandom in both Request 1 and Request 2 (or Offer 1 and Offer 2) on the form?
