Here's the posting schedule. The mods will reveal the work on AO3, so all participants might want to do on that day is update the posting date on their work, so it'll show up on fandom RSS feeds. Unfortunately AO3 won't let you list a posting date in the future, so you'll have to manually change it on the day you want it to show on the RSS.

Please be sure to have your work ready for your reveal day, with the podfic links and streaming in the body of the work (streaming doesn't work elsewhere). Mods will reveal on AO3 and crosspost to this comm on DW, LJ, and Tumblr, with podfics crossposted to the Audiofic Archive if participants agreed when asked (if I haven't asked you, but you'd like the podfic posted to the AA, please let me know). Once the project is live, you're free to crosspost wherever else you'd like.

Reminder #1: Party Favors are due August 27, and will be posted August 28.
Reminder #2: To those participants with extensions, please remember that your due date is our agreed upon extension date, not anytime before your posting date. However, if you would like to turn in a postable draft at your deadline and then update it between then and your posting date, you may.

Schedule )

Please let me know if there are any problems with the schedule; posting starts tomorrow!
Also, please make sure I have the writer(s)/podficcer(s) done correctly.

Good morning,

Today is the early submission deadline for podfics. Any projects that have podfics submitted by the end of today will be guaranteed a place in the first half of the posting schedule. Below the cut is a list of all projects that I have confirmed as having submitted their podfics so far. If you don't see your group on the list but know you have submitted a project, please leave a comment or send us an email letting us know, so you can get credit for your early submission. (Also, feel free to leave a comment cheering all these awesome early birds on!)

Completed Projects Submitted So Far, Total = 22 )

Also, if you want to celebrate your success by planning a Party Favor, make sure to check out the excellent writers and podficcers here and here who are looking for Party Favor partners.

With an impressive 10 projects fully posted already and significant interest in Party Favors, the time has come for this post!

For those who aren't familiar with Party Favors, here are the posts of Party Favors from the past two years and here's the info from the FAQ:

[A Party Favor] is a no-commitment extra project that can be submitted and posted on the last day. Party Favors have no word minimum, no pressure or commitment, and are made completely outside the bounds of the challenge, until the day they show up in our inbox as a delightful surprise! The last day to submit Party Favors is the day before the end of the posting schedule, which will be August 27th.

So basically, Party Favors are all you. You don't need to let us know if you're doing one, you don't need to let us know if you're dropping out of one, you don't need to follow any rules except that the project is explicitly created for audio. It can be done by a single person writing and podficcing, or by a team of two or more.

If you'd like a Party Favor partner, you're welcome to look on your own on twitter or by contacting partners you dream of working with or by any other method. But you're also welcome to use this post to announce your interest in Party Favors and ask for a volunteer to work with you. Historically, everybody who has put out a call in posts like these has found a partner!

Important note from your weirdly self-competitive mod: Last year we had 61 main projects and 8 Party Favors, for a total of 69. This year, we have 58 main projects. A mere 11 Party Favors will get us to tie with last year's total, and 12 or more will get us to beat it! Not that this matters to anyone but me! But! Wouldn't that be cool, if every year of pod_together had more projects than the last, for 4 years running? :D?

This is the last official check-in before the project completion deadline on August 6th. Don't forget that completed projects submitted before August 3rd get special consideration when it comes to early posting dates.

(If you are someone who would find additional check-ins helpful, please let us know, and we'd be happy to schedule a follow-up check-in with you between now and the deadline!)

Remember to share what you've done so far with your partner, which means that if you have a partial podfic completed, now is the time to send that to your partner. Also, if you haven't given your writer feedback about their work, please take that opportunity to do it now. We've found that it's often very important to pod_together participants to have their work acknowledged and appreciated by their partners, and sometimes with the rush to meet deadlines, this important step in the process can get overlooked! So this is your official reminder to send some love and support to your partner :)

And of course, please let us know any ways we can support you. Options include:
-Putting out a call for a co-podficcer for part of the story
-Putting out a call for an editor to edit your podfic
-Additional check-ins/cheerleading/podfic betas

Also, if you are interested in working on a Party Favor when you finish your modded project, and are about ready for the Party Favor matchups post to go up, that would be a helpful thing to mention during check-in, so we can get a sense of the best time for that.

Okay, we look forward to hearing from you! We hope you are having fun!
