[personal profile] paraka posting in [community profile] pod_together
The written component of pod_together is due next Sunday, July 13th (unless you've made arrangements for an extension). If the written component is already completed, feel free to upload early. Podfics are due August 6th, and are also welcome to be submitted early (remember, podfics posted before August 3rd, get earlier reveal dates!)

We hosting the final products on AO3. If you don't have an account with AO3, then please let me know, I'll send you an invitation.

To submit your project, post the project to the Pod Together 2014 Collections, either by adding via this link or by listing Pod_Together2014 in the “Post to Collections/Challenges:" field.

Be sure to add all your group members as co-authors, and to hit submit when done; the challenge is set to unrevealed, so the project will show as a "Mystery Work" to anyone but the co-authors and mods. If you leave the project as a draft, only you will be able to see the contents, leaving your partner(s) out, as well as the mods, and the project will automatically delete itself after a month. If you don’t get the message shown in the image below, double check to be sure you’ve submitted everything properly.

Note: If your group is planning on posting an audio-only version of the final projects, we still ask the writer to post the text to AO3 for the writing deadline. Once the audio is ready to post, the text can be removed.

Once the audio component of the project is ready, you can email the mods at pod.together at gmail dot com.

You can send us a link to your podfic and the cover art if you have any. If you feel that your podfic would benefit from multiple streams, please specify in your email when handing it in. The mods will email you back with links and the streaming code. We ask that everyone leave their podfic up for at least 6 months, however after that if you ever want/need to have it taken down, please email [personal profile] paraka at parakaproductions at gmail dot com and it'll be removed right away. Also remember that, if an emergency ever arises where the link needs to be made unavailable immediately, you will be able to edit the AO3 post to remove the embeds and download links to the podfic right away.

Or, if you have your own hosting (which meets these criteria), let us know in the email you’ve added the audio to your project. You don’t need to include the files in your email.

All audio will be available for streaming and as direct downloads as both mp3 and m4b. If you don’t have the audio in those formats, the mods will convert the files for you. The mods default to using the streaming code posted on but any player that works on AO3 is fine. AO3 offers a number of streaming player options here.

Once you have the direct downloads and streaming code ready, they can be added to the top of the AO3 entry, or throughout the entry as required. Be sure to add the links/streaming code to the main works body—the streaming code won’t work if it’s in the notes or summary sections.

If you’ve never posted to AO3 before, or if you’d like some visual aids, here are last year’s instructions. Just be sure to update the dates and submit to the correct collection.

There are a couple people recording for my project who aren't really in fandom and don't have AO3 accounts, but there are also plenty of fannish folks with accounts recording as well, so hopefully that won't be an issue? I could always get them accounts for the sole purpose of being credited in the byline, but they'd never use them for anything else, so it seems like kind of a waste.

It's fine to not include them, though if they'd like to get accounts we're happy to send them invites.


For your aural pleasure
