The mods can't. Well, one can, and she's busy reminding the other two.

Below you will find our schedule for this round of Holmestice and some housekeeping items.

First, housekeeping. As many of you are well aware, there has been a situation with LJ and we are migrating away from that platform. With community support we have moved to Dreamwidth for a wide variety of reasons. We are not done migrating the community yet and we know many of you are eager to get all your work off LJ sooner rather than later.

While we plan to eventually scrub content from all LJ entries and replace content with URLs pointing to the work on Dreamwidth (just in case people have old bookmarks, etc.) you can request that we do your work sooner rather than later. Please fill out this form and we'll create a queue and get to work on it.

Please Remove My Content From LJ Sooner Rather Than Later Form

I'm 100% fine with however matching is done, but will it be post here as per usual or are you going to try matching on AO3 this round? :)

I'm so happy that THIS round I can participate.

Also, re: the form...I have so many fics up at the challenge under the username scandalbaby but I'm not planning on moving them to Dreamwidth, just AO3 (they should all be up there). I can't use the form to just say "I have a lot of fics" but I would like them all off LJ and linked to the AO3 posts. Is that possible?

Will get to my signup after I finish a story for a more current exchange deadline, but wanted to mention that I have just pimped promoted Holmestice over on the "Letters of Mary" discussion group at Yahoo (I joined a little while back). So if we get an abrupt infusion of Russell partisans, that will be why....

To sign up, use the template in this post, to leave a comment on that self-same post. (If you'd like an example of a correct sign-up, see Emily Apismelifera's sign-up.) Make sure you include ALL the fields from the template; we need them all for matching.

And no, you don't need an LJ or DW logon! (Although many things are easier with one, such as the ability to edit your sign-up, or to have comments/responses emailed to you.) To sign up without an LJ/DW logon, use the "anonymous" option to leave your comment. Just please please PLEASE make sure you include all your contact information, so that we can send you your assignment and contact you with any questions.
