Heya all, it's getting towards time for the Christmas exchange, and I've been thinking about ways to maybe get more participation. A lot of exchanges nowadays are run on AO3, and they let you make collections where people can leave prompts, which I thought might be a good option to have!
Here's a random example of what a prompt challenge looks like on AO3 - if you have an AO3 account, you can post requests in the prompts section, and then other people can claim them. Fic and art posted for the prompts are in the works section. I can do a more detailed how-to if there's interest, but that's the basic idea.
I'm thinking of having this alongside the regular exchange format on BCL, so you can sign up for either or both. Currently I'm leaning towards saying that since this is an extra thing, you're only guaranteed a gift if you sign up on BCL, but I could change that. Probably will depend on how many people join, either way.
