There is an AO3 bug where some relationships in the tagset do not appear in the drop-down menu. If this happens, please copy and paste the relationship from the tagset.

You may offer a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20 relationships per fandom.
You may request a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20 relationships per fandom.
'Any' means you are requesting/offering all relationships in the tagset which have been nominated under the requested/offered fandom.
You can request and offer fic, art, or fic and art. Medium(s) offered/requested can vary across fandoms.

You will be matched on 1 fandom, 1 relationship, and 1 freeform.

EDIT: I have fixed an issue with the offers, and the offers should now be working. I'm very sorry about this!

I cannot make any changes to the tagset after the fandom has been requested or offered, sorry.

Signups close at 23:59 Pago Pago time (-11 UTC) on the 16th of July.

I have either approved or rejected all tags. Signups will be opened within the next 45 minutes unless there are any changes to be made to the tagset.

In particular, I made executive decisions on the following points:
1. Alec McDowell | X5-494 & Dean Winchester - I assumed that these characters were from Dark Angel and SPN respectively.
2. Diana (Wonder Woman) & Steve Rogers - There doesn't seem to be a Steve Rogers in the DCEU, and since this relationship has been already nominated under crossovers, I rejected it.
3. Wrt X-Men, I folded the original & alternate timeline movies into the movieverse, but kept the disambiguation so that specified versions of the characters could be requested. (I do know this causes duplicates, but it seemed the best solution.)

Clarifications pt. 3

As of 4:15 p.m. UTC I have not rejected any nominations yet. Any nominations rejected have been in error; please contact me ASAP if this happened to you. As always, please also inform me of duplicates/misspellings/migrations/wrong categorizations ASAP.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon | Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon/Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon | Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (Anime & Manga)
Are these both the same fandom? If so, would combining them be okay?

Crossovers:
Alec McDowell | X5-494 & Dean Winchester - Is this Dean Winchester from Supernatural and Alec McDowell from Dark Angel?

DCEU:
Diana (Wonder Woman) & Steve Rogers - Is there a character called Steve Rogers in the DCEU? If not, could the version of Steve Rogers being nominated be specified?

X-Men:
There are nominations for X-Men Movies, X-Men Alternate Timeline Movies, X-Men Original Timeline Movies, and Wolverine. At present, I'm thinking of approving all four fandoms; the other option would be to fold everything (or everything but Wolverine) under the umbrella X-Men Movies tag, and then disambiguate so that the version of the movie is clear. Would someone more knowledgeable about X-Men tell me if this works?

Clarifications

A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones:
Ramsay Bolton & Myranda - has been nominated under ASOIAF but disambiguated as GoT. Which fandom does this come under?

Crossovers:
Spider-Gwen & Matt Murdock | Daredevil (Earth 616) - are the characters from two different universes? If so, could the 'verse Spider-Gwen is from be specified? If not, what is the appropriate fandom?

DCEU:
Diana (Wonder Woman) & Steve Rogers - Is there a character called Steve Rogers in the DCEU? If not, could the version of Steve Rogers being nominated be specified?

Green Lantern/Green Lanterns:
Was 'Green Lanterns' (fandom name) a typo or is there a seperate comic called Green Lanterns?

X-Men:
I have nominations under Wolverine, X-Men Movies, and Alternate Timeline Movies. Are all of these discrete categories? If not, how would you prefer them sorted?

Also, a few reminders:
1. Crossovers go under 'Crossover Fandom'. I'm willing to make exceptions for characters from franchises, but relationships between characters from completely unrelated fandoms should go under 'Crossover Fandom'.
2. Please try not to misspell fandom names, especially if the fandom has already been nominated and approved. Similarly, please check the tagset to see how your fandom has been nominated before you nominate. Changing fandom names after nominations requires extra work on my part.
3. As always, please do inform me of duplicates/misspellings/migrations/wrong categorizations ASAP.
4. Only & relationships are allowed. / relationships are not allowed, and will be rejected once nominations close.

Nominations Are Open!

Nominate

Tagset

You may nominate up to seven fandoms, with a maximum of 7 relationships per fandom.

Please only nominate & relationships (i.e. gen relationships.).

Please ignore the instructions at the top of the form regarding crossover relationships. Crossover relationships go under 'Crossover Fandom'. The instructions to nominate crossover relationships under either fandom are AO3's automated instructions, and, unfortunately, I can't find a way to remove them.

All Media Types tags are not allowed for Tolkien and Star Wars. Tolkien will be split as LotR books/LotR movies/Silmarillion/Hobbit books/Hobbit movies. Star Wars will be split as Originals/Prequels/Sequels/Legends/canon comics/canon novels/individual TV shows.

Please also avoid All Media Types tags for fandoms as much as possible. As specific or general (eg: individual movies or umbrella franchises) as you want is fine, but I'd prefer to minimise AMT tags as much as possible.

Please also note that I won't be able to approve tags very quickly until the 28th or 29th, possibly the 30th, because my home Internet is down and repairs are ongoing. I will be approving nominations on mobile as fast as possible, but disambiguation will take time. In particular, disambiguating when nominating for the following fandoms would make the process faster:
  • Tolkien
  • Star Wars
  • Star Trek
  • Stargate
  • George R. R. Martin
  • Fullmetal 
  • The Man From U.N.C.L.E.  (TV/movies)
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • Marvel
  • DC

Once nominations begin to be approved, if your noms have mysteriously vanished, been moved to the wrong fandom, or otherwise messed up, please let me know! Ditto for duplicates and misspellings/nonexistent characters.

2017 Preliminaries

Tentative schedule:
Nominations: 27th June - 5th July
Signups: 7th - 15th July
Works due - 1st/2nd September
Works revealed - 9th September
Creators revealed - 16th September
Does this schedule work? Any issues?
(I do have issues with moving these dates very much, in that my Internet is limited to my phone until my home Internet gets repaired, around the 27th-28th, maybe the 29th or 30th at the worst, and I can't accept nominations very quickly on my phone, and I will have limited time from the 19th for about a week and a half due to prior IRL obligations).

Schedule has been finalised! You can view the schedule here.
Nominations will start around noon UTC on the 27th. 

Rules and FAQs have been revised. New FAQs are here; old FAQs can be found here.

Nominations:
The tagset from last year is here. Does the grouping of fandoms work? In particular,
  • Tolkien as The Silmarillion, The Lord of the Rings books, The Lord of the Rings movies, The Hobbit books, and The Hobbit movies
  • Marvel - MCU, individual TV shows, comics under their own 'verse (no overall Marvel comics tag) For comics,  would you prefer overall 'verses or individual titles?
  • Ditto for DC
  • Star Wars is split into Originals, Sequels, Prequels, Rebels, Clone Wars, Legends, and comics Would you prefer Legends/comics/canon novels(/video games?), more specific splitting by title, or a different grouping method?
  • X-Men as Original and Alternate Timeline movies.
  • This year, I'd also like nominators to refrain from All Media Types tags as much as possible
If there are any issues you spotted last year, or if you think this grouping doesn't work, please leave a comment.

Rules and FAQs (revised for 2017)

GenEx is an exchange for '&' relationships (i.e. gen relationships.)

Rules and FAQs from last year.

Rules
  • Romantic and/or sexual relationships should not be the main focus of the work.
  • You must either drawn clean lineart with at least basic coloring, inking, shading etc. (no graphics or photomanips allowed) or write a fic with a minimum of 1000 words. Work must be of adequate quality to be gifted. DNWs stated in the signup should not be included in the work.
  • Authors cannot deanon by mentioning their name in the work before the anonymous period is over. Artists can insert a watermark if they wish to. Crossposting is not allowed until the anonymous period is over.
  • There must be a working email address attached to your AO3 account so I can contact you.
  • Don't wank in exchange spaces, don't be rude.


FAQ
How many fandoms and relationships can I nominate?
You may nominate up to 7 fandoms, with a maximum of 7 characters in each fandom.

Can I nominate more than two people in a relationship, for example A & B & C?
Yes.

Can I nominate [character] & any?
Yes.

Is RPF allowed?
RPF is allowed. However, for people who are currently alive, everyone nominated must be 18 or above, and non-famous family members, friends etc. cannot be nominated.

How many fandoms and relationships can I request?
You may request a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20, or any (any relationship in the tagset), relationships.

How many fandoms and relationships can I offer?
You may offer a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20, or any (any relationship in the tagset), relationships.

Are crossover relationships allowed?
Yes. Crossover relationship must be nominated under 'Crossover Fandom'.

Are original works allowed?
Yes. Relationships for original works must be nominated under 'Original Works'.

How does matching work?
You will be matched on a minimum of one fandom and one relationship within that fandom. If no-one has offered what you've requested, your requests will be sent out as an initial pinch hit. If no-one has requested what you've offered, I'm afraid you'll have to add pairings/fandoms to your signup or drop out of the exchange.

Are treats allowed?
Yes!

What are the minimum requirements for treats?
There aren't any.

Is there a seperate collection for treats?
No. Treats go in the main collection.

I need an extension!
Please contact me at least 12 hours before the deadline if you need more time. I cannot give extensions that are closer than 72 hours to the time of reveals.

Is there a penalty for defaulting?
No. However, if you're defaulting due to issues with the assignment etc, please remember that if you default earlier I have more time to find a pinch hit.

Do I need to tag my work with the & relationship on AO3?
No. The tags in the tagset are for matching purposes; as long as the work contains a requested gen relationship between characters you're fine.

I left a comment on LiveJournal/left an ask on Tumblr/messaged you on Tumblr and you haven't replied.
There is only an RSS feed on LJ; I don't get notifications for comments on the feed. The Tumblr is for promotional purposes only. Please direct all question to the DW comm or email me at genexmoderator@gmail.com .

How can I contact you?
Leave a comment on this post, or email me at genexmoderator@gmail.com

I have a problem with my assignment/gift.
Please contact me privately and I'll see what I can do. (If you've matched with someone who hasn't requested at least one of your offered relationships in one fandom you've offered, I can fix that, but I can't swap assignments around. And yes, I can deal with gifts which break the rules.)
