Works are due in just under a week from the time of this post.

If you think you might need an extension, please email me at worldbuildingmod@gmx.com - I would very strongly prefer to be pleasantly surprised when people turn out not to need them, rather than the other way around.

Existing pinch hits (many thanks to those who picked them up) have the same due date as other works. Any new pinch hits which arise between now and 1st April will have a later due date of 06:59 UTC on Weds 5th April.

I am aware of the ongoing issue with posting works to AO3 being difficult. If you do encounter significant problems with uploading your completed work, please get in touch.

If anyone's interested, of the 18 works already in the collection, 13 are completed assignments and five are treats.

[tumblr.com profile] bathtimefunduck gave us this gem:

The female body literally cannot carry a child to full development. It would kill us. We’re more like… game developers at Ubisoft— we kick the product out before it’s ready and hope we can work out the bugs to make them playable as they get older.

Thanks to everyone who let us know that Photobucket images were not loading properly on some pages. The problem seemed to be mostly limited to HTTPS requests; Dreamwidth maintains a list of known high-traffic image sites that support HTTPS, so that our secure content proxy service doesn't cache them unnecessarily. Unfortunately Photobucket seems to have recently changed their site configuration such that HTTPS requests aren't being served as expected, and we've now taken it out of our list of "proxy-exempt" sites.

If you continue to have issues, make sure you're not using HTTPS Photobucket links. It's a bit counterintuitive, but if you use HTTP instead, it will be automatically transformed on our end to an HTTPS link that uses p.dreamwidth.org.

Hope that clears everything up for now! Let us know if it doesn't...

Pinch hit #5

Another pinch hit; as before, due on Sat 1st Apr 06:59 UTC along with other assignments. Comments are screened; comment with your AO3 name to claim. Screened comments won't be replied to - if it appears in your assignments page on AO3, you got it; if it doesn't but gets marked as claimed, someone else did.

Pinch Hit #5 - Fandoms: #FindTheGirlsOnTheNegatives, Flygresor.se Kattreklamen Commercials, NASA Visions of the Future travel posters, NASA Mars Explorers Wanted Posters - Claimed! )

A wild pinch hit appears!

To claim, comment on this post with your AO3 username; all comments are screened. If you get it as an assignment, you got the pinch hit; if not but you see it's been claimed, then someone else got it instead, sorry. (But do consider treating!)

At this stage, the due date for the pinch hit will be the same as other works: Sat 1st Apr 06:59 UTC. (This has always been intended as the equivalent of midnight Pacific time on Fri 31st March, but let me know if I've messed up accounting for DST.)

Pinch Hit #4 - Fandoms: His Dark Materials, Lock In, Guild Wars 2, Zootopia, Secret World of Alex Mack - Claimed! )
