New changes for 2017
Umbrella
bridgetmc
2017 Schedule
April 5 to 15 - Nominations
April 15 to 18 - Corrections
April 19 to 30 - Sign ups
May 3 - Assignments go out by the latest
May 5 - Madness collection and prompts open
July 3 - Stories due
July 11 - Main collection goes live
July 12 - Madness collection goes live
July 14 - Author reveals

The new changes are as follows:

1) Announcements will no longer be on LJ, just the DW comm and as such, this will be the last post on this comm. ETA: The DW comm is npt-admin.

2) Nominations will be through platonic or romantic (/ or &) relationships instead of characters. That means matching will be done through OR matching and not AND matching.

3) If you want to nominate a single character, you can do so through nominating 'Character & None' as a tag (ie Derek Hale & None). Three or moresomes will be allowed if they're already AO3 canonical tags.

4) You can request minimum of 1 relationship and a maximum of 8 relationships in each fandom. You can no longer request Any, however you can still offer Any.

5) Requests will be visible midway through signups. The anonymous author period will be shorter as well.

See everyone in a month for nominations on the DW comm!

End of round feedback

This is Not Prime Time's fifth year running. With this year's round at a close, here's an opportunity for you to say know what you liked, what you didn't like, what you'd like to change, etc for next year's round. There's no guarantee everything suggested will be implemented, but everything will be read and thought about. Anonymous commenting is allowed.

Individual comments won't be responded to, though there will be a reply if someone asks a question.

Hiatus Resolution collection is open for both previous participants and non-participants who want to write completed fics over a thousand words. Here is 2016's requests in a txt file. If you don't have a particular person you want to write to, there is always gifting to NPT_Producer.

Author reveals

Not Prime Time 2016 and Prime Time Madness 2016 are officially over and authors have been revealed. You may now respond to your comments if you haven't already done so via anonymous author replies. :)

I'd like to thank everyone who helped make Not Prime Time a success - from the lurkers to the participants and our pinch hitters to the readers and back again. I finally have a break from studying, so today is going to be my day of finally reading fics that weren't my gifts. I'm excited! :D

Feedback post will be posted either today or tomorrow.

Madness collection open
Umbrella
bridgetmc
The Prime Time Madness 2016 collection is open. You can scroll through all the works and use the sorting buttons to find what you are looking for (by title, date updated, word count, hits - both by highest and lowest, etc). If you are looking for something specific, there is also searching by tags.

Writers, either you can hold off on replying back to comments until after author reveals on July 16th or you can choose to use the option of anonymous creator replies which are turned on until reveals.

Main collection is open
Umbrella
bridgetmc
The stories are up and raring to be read at Not Prime Time 2016. A very special thank you to our pinch hitters for helping us open on time. If you see some fics unrevealed, give it some time as AO3 does it in batches.

You can scroll through all the works and use the sorting buttons to find what you are looking for (by title, date updated, word count, hits - both by highest and lowest, etc). If you are looking for something specific, there is also searching by tags.

Writers, either you can hold off on replying back to comments until after author reveals on July 16th or you can choose to use the option of anonymous creator replies which are turned on until reveals.

With the main collection open, all treats, no matter the size, are to be uploaded in our Prime Time Madness 2016 collection. This collection opens July 12th.

If you find anything wrong or suspicious in the collection, please email or comment on the post so I can investigate when I get back home later tonight.

Enjoy reading!

The Not Prime Time 2016 collection will open in one hour (9:30 am Eastern). Consider this your hour warning to edit or do any last minute whatever.

Opening on time and forward dating
Umbrella
bridgetmc
The last pinch hit is in and we are on track to open on July 11th at 9:30 am Eastern (use New York if you need to convert time zones). I will give an hour warning before the collection is due to open, so if you want to do some last minute editing, you have some time.

Since someone asked me in an email, I'll give the same opportunity to other people. If you have more than one gift waiting for you and you want to know if you were double assigned or if those are treats, you can email to find out which fic is which at notprimetime AT voiceofserenity DOT com.

While the collection is still unrevealed, since these fics are in medium (or bigger) fandoms, chances are those fics won't be on the front page of said fandom. As an option, if you'd like, go ahead and forward date your fic (discretion is advised). This way your fic is on your fandom's front page when the collection opens. Otherwise, when the fics are revealed, it probably won't get any foot traffic from people checking out new fics in the fandom because it'll be a few if not more pages back.

To do this, you'll need to edit your fic and scroll down until you reach the Associations box. Towards the end of that box is a ticky box for "Set a different publication date." Ticky it to set the date to July 10th, July 11th or some other date. Then scroll all the way down to click on Post Without Preview.

Good luck!

Collection opening on the 11th
Umbrella
bridgetmc
There are currently 3 pinch hits out and are due today. I didn't set an exact time, so whenever today. Good luck, pinch hitters!

We are currently on time to open on the 11th. The tentative opening is 9:30 am Eastern (use New York if you need to convert time zones). It's an earlier time than previous years, but unfortunately, I leave early for school and that's the latest I can leave it in my time zone on the west coast. If it can't open at that time for whatever reason, it'll have to be pushed back to 2 am Eastern on the 12th because I'll be in the cadaver lab all day into the night.

Let's hope for the early opening! \o/

Treats over 1k can be placed in the Not Prime Time 2016 collection while treats under 1k and non-fic works can be placed in the Prime Time Madness 2016 collection. After the main collection opens, any size fics can be placed into the madness collection.

If you are having some difficulty in coming up with tags for your story, here are some questions that might be helpful. Tags are not mandatory and you can take or leave the suggestion below. This is only meant for those who want to tag, but don't know what to tag.

What kind of story is it? (Fluffy, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Character Study, etc)
Is it an AU? (There are several different type of Alternate Universe canonical tags)
Did you write about a threesome? (Specific types of threesome are canonical tags as well as just the regular Threesome tag)
Did you write porn? (There are plenty of canonical tags for various sexual acts)
What kind of relationship do your characters have with each other? (Friendship, Rivals, Siblings, Developing Relationship, etc)
What do your characters do? (There are plenty of canonical tags for events/situations)

If none of these sound like they could fit your story, there is always the option of refreshing the Random Tags page to see what pops up.

Misc announcements
Umbrella
bridgetmc
I started my grad program yesterday, so please give me some time to answer emails and comments. I gave a quick lookthrough of fics and didn't find obvious placeholders. Yay! There were a few formatting/no space issues in a few fics I found, and plenty who were tagless (tags aren't mandatory, but highly recommended), but there's still time for that.

If you have a draft in the collection, please post it. Drafts can't be read by anyone but you and they do not count as fulfilling your assignment.

Treats over 1k can be placed in the Not Prime Time 2016 collection while treats under 1k and non-fic works can be placed in the Prime Time Madness 2016 collection.
