This pinch hit will be due at 06:59 UTC on Weds 5th April. (Coincidentally, this is almost exactly a week and four hours from the time of this post.) As with previous pinch hits, comments are screened - you'll find out if you got it if it appears on your AO3 Assignments page. If it doesn't but you see it marked as claimed, you missed out this time, sorry.

Hello everybody!

This month we’ve been super busy preparing for April Showers that start next week and we hope you are as excited for the event as we are. April Showers is an annual event where we celebrate fannish history by spotlighting a different fandom every day of the month. If you want to participate but aren’t sure how or where to start, we prepared a short help page with a lot of useful tips!

After a feedback period, we also implemented the Japanese version of Fanlore’s image policy and purpose aimed at non-English speaking doujinshi creators. It was a true labor of love and we’re really happy it’s finally online.

In other good news, we’ve mentioned in our February Update that the Wayback Machine stopped archiving AO3 links and now we are thrilled to let you know that the problem has been solved! You can learn more about the situation here.

After we implemented the new and improved New Visitor Portal, we started working on the new revamped Main Page. After brainstorming, we came up with a new draft, which you can see here. As always, we welcome any and all feedback as we work on the details. Feel free to leave your comments in the talk page of the draft or using our contact form!

As of March 26, Fanlore has 41,353 articles, which have undergone 719,987 revisions. If you're up for doing one more, why not log in? See you on Recent Changes!

Hello, everyone! We hope the writing is going well. It’s time for some housekeeping and general reminders.

First, the no-penalty default deadline is in about one week: 1 April at 11:59 PM, EST. There’s a countdown here.

Second, on 2 April, we’ll open a post here for the mandatory check-in. By 8 April, you must leave a simple comment on that post to let us know you’re still committed to the exchange. Anyone who doesn’t comment will be defaulted automatically at the end of the check-in period.

If you’ll be unable to check in with us during that time, please contact us in advance at

Third, a quick reminder that if you’re looking for a beta or cheerleader, or you’re interested in beta-reading or cheerleading for someone else, the beta post is here.

And, finally, a huge thank-you to our pinch hitters! We have two pinch hits outstanding. You can check them out and sign up at this post.

[personal profile] worldbuildingmod posting in [community profile] worldbuildingex
Works are due in just under a week from the time of this post.

If you think you might need an extension, please email me at - I would very strongly prefer to be pleasantly surprised when people turn out not to need them, rather than the other way around.

Existing pinch hits (many thanks to those who picked them up) have the same due date as other works. Any new pinch hits which arise between now and 1st April will have a later due date of 06:59 UTC on Weds 5th April.

I am aware of the ongoing issue with posting works to AO3 being difficult. If you do encounter significant problems with uploading your completed work, please get in touch.

If anyone's interested, of the 18 works already in the collection, 13 are completed assignments and five are treats.
