Housekeeping (the usual stuff)
Reminder that we have a suggestion post if there’s a topic that you’d like to see discussed but would like to ask the mods to look into. This can be anything from general information, or a how-to-do-a-thing, or something you may want to discuss as a community. Folks are welcome to post directly to the comm as always, but if you’re not comfortable/don’t have spoons, we can help too.

As we don't always get the time to pull things out of the suggestions post into their own separate posts, it may be worth checking every week (or tracking the post) to see if there's any new information you're interested in.

Also if you need help with tags, PM [personal profile] redbird, who is our tag guru. Both [personal profile] tanaqui and I are very grateful for the help.

Introducing our theme for CON.TXT 2018: The Joy of Fandom

Let’s face it, things in the real world are starting to look a bit dystopic out there, and we’ve begun to wonder if we’ve entered the darkest timeline. It’s a time when we all need Bob Ross to paint us some happy little trees, or some happy little clouds.

When we REALLY need that fix-it story.

The joy of fandom is our ability to remix, reshape, and rewrite our favorite media into something that pleases us. We change endings, we bring characters back to life, we reimagine Harry Potter as South Asian or Peggy Carter as Captain America, we put hobbits in coffee shops, boybanders in space, and Alexander Hamilton in a zombie apocalypse, we explore infinite timeline diversions, and most of all, we make our favorite characters get laid, fall in love, destroy their enemies, save the world, and buy some curtains. And always remember, there are no mistakes in Bob Ross paintings, just happy accidents.

Fandom is not always perfect, and it’s not always the safe space we wish it were, but at least it’s not the real world. With that in mind, we invite you to come and take a break with us, hang out with other fans in person, and celebrate each other and the media we love!

Auction Procedures

Oct. 14th, 2017 07:39 pm
hansbekhart: (Default)
[personal profile] hansbekhart posting in [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico
Hi everyone! Thank you so much for participating in the Fandom Loves Puerto Rico fundraiser - whether you're a creator, bidder, or have helped spread the word on social media! (or all three!) I wanted to go over some nitty gritty details with everyone.

Sign Ups Ending
The sign up sheet will be open until 3pm EST, Sunday October 15th. At this point the sign up post and Buy It Now! pages will be set to private, so that no new comments can be added. All comments or questions should be redirected to the Master Post.

This is to give me enough time to get all auction items recorded, and over to new pages. I'll be moving each auction item to its own thread, to ensure there's no confusion over multiple items being bid (for example, if a creator has offered "1 fic x 5,000 words" and "3 fics x 500 words" then they will have two auction items (i.e. comment threads).


Auction Opening & Closing
The auction will go live at 9am EST, Tuesday October 17th. The full indexed list of creators, indexed fanfic list, and indexed fan art list have been updated for reference. The links point back to the sign up sheet, which is why they're for reference only; bids must be placed on auction posts in order to be considered valid. All offerings will be grouped together on the auction post; the link will go to the first item only. We encourage you to scroll down to find their other items.

The auction will continue until 6pm EST, Monday October 23rd. At that time, the auction posts will be screened to private to bring all bidding to a close. The posts will unscreened after 1-2 hours. At that point, the winning bidders will start to receive a reply to their posts informing them that their bid has won, and further instructions. It will take up to a few days to go through and notify all winners; you're welcome to come back to the post to see if you've won, but please do not comment any further on any comment thread unless you are the creator.

The notification comment will contain the creator contact information that was been provided to me (either on the sign up sheet or via direct message on DW/tumblr). If you provided an email address, we will put spaces in the address to make it less recognizable (i.e. hansbekhart at gmail dot com) but if you're not comfortable with this measure please provide an alternate way for your bidders to contact you.

If the auction item has more than one of the same item (i.e. 3 x pencil sketches) and your bid is one of the highest 3, you've won. For posts with multiple items, but more identical bids than number of items, preference will be given to the earlier bids.

Proof of donation to ConPRmetidos (a receipt or screencap of receipt) must be supplied directly to the creator within THREE WEEKS of the auction close, or by November 7th. Do not post proof of donation directly to the community, or anywhere public. We recommend that you block out any identifying information on the information you send to your creator, as well. Email hacks happen all the time these days, and you don't want any more private financial information out in the world than necessary.

It is the responsibility of the bidder to get in contact with the creator, and provide donation proof to them. The Fandom Loves Puerto Rico mods (which is mostly just me, guys) will not chase down anyone once we've notified you that you've won an auctioned item.

Creators should come back to the relevant auction thread and update with donation information. They can also notify me of the donation via tumblr messenger or my askbox. This is so I can keep track of the total amount raised.

We will be following up with all creators that haven't confirmed donation around November 7th. If they haven't received their proof of donation, the runner up of the auctioned item will be contacted to see if they would like a chance to make a donation in the amount of their last bid, to receive the item.

The fundraiser will not be establishing a deadline for creators to finish their items. All estimated delivery/posting dates must be worked out between the bidder and creator. The fundraiser will also not be involved in any shipping/handling of physical goods; all details as to who covers shipping must be worked out between the bidder and creator.

If the bidder approves, please post your creations to the AO3 Fandom Loves Puerto Rico collection. If you are posting a link to your item on tumblr, you can send it directly to me (hansbekhart) and I'll reblog.


Buy It Now! Event
The Buy It Now! Event will not be reposted; the event will go live on the existing page at 9am EST, October 18th, and run until 6pm EST, October 19th, or until we run out of items. First come, first served! You have the same three weeks to provide proof of donation.


Etc.
Please ask any other questions down below, and if you can, please be patient with me and this community over the next two weeks. I'll answer questions as quickly as I can, but I'll be traveling and otherwise occupied on certain days; on those days I'll have a friend step in for me, but if you don't hear back from anyone quickly, please be patient.

My very own own Senator Ed Markey, along with California Congressman Ted Lieu, has created a bill that would require authorization from Congress (either as a declaration of war or the more-common- of-late authorization of force) before a nuclear strike.

This is a wonderful bill for a number of obvious reasons; it's HR 699/S 200. (House/Senate version. House text.)

If you are so inclined, call your Senators and Congressfolk to urge them to pass it. (202) 224-3121, or use Resistbot. (Text the word "resist" to 50409 to begin.)

Rachelmanijia has more info, a script, and other ideas here, and the campaign is hashtagging it up at #PullTheFootball, if you're Twitter-inclined.

If you're not American, feel free to share the info around anyway; the more folks who get this info, the better.
