Hey dudes, it's about that time of year again, so before I get any worried PMs: Yes, Parallels will be happening as usual. I'm still working on things like an icon for this year and getting the rules up to date on the AO3 collection. That should be completed in the next couple of days, at which point I will start my big advertising push.
Dates are as stated last year:
June 1-15th: Nominations
June 16-29th: Signups
July 1st: Assignments go out
August 1st: Assignments due
August 1st-14th: Pinch hitting
August 15th: Works go live
August 22nd: Creator names are revealed( How Nominations Work )( How Signups Work )( The Matching Process )( Pinch Hits )Advertising:
Like I said above, I always appreciate help advertising Parallels. If you have ideas for where to advertise, I'd love to hear them in a LJ/DW comment or a Tumblr reblog. LJ/DW community names, Tumblr tags, forums with lenient advertising policies: if you've got ideas, I want 'em.
If you'd like to make some graphics to advertise Parallels, that would be awesome. LJ/DW/Tumblr posts are always greatly appreciated, pimping Parallels to your own rare fandoms doubly so.
For this year, my objectives are to finally get more Bollywood into Parallels, to increase the size of the exchange, and to make the exchange more visibly multi-media.
