A Fandom Auction to help Haiti recover

We Are Collect-able. We Are Organized-ish.

There's also a lot of interest in having a way to sort through offers by fandom. I can't do it or even help - I'm heading out of town for the weekend in about 15 hours. I will have my laptop so I can do general community work/management, but it's not that easy to work in multiple windows on my laptop (in part because my Firefox has been crashing far too much recently).

If people want to organize themselves in the comments to this post, to make such an index, that would be terrific and super-helpful!

oulangi is working to organize requests, and eventually fics, on del.icio.us. More info coming soon to this space on how you can help.

Thanks to thefannishwaldo, a collection-space has been set up on An Archive of Our Own (aka AOOO) - you can find it here. If you have an AOOO account, you can add a story to the Help_Haiti collection by clicking here, then clicking on Post New Story.

If you don't have an AOOO account and want one, comment here on this thread, and we'll try to get you an account within the next few days. I have one invitation myself, and I'll give it to the first Lightning Round offeror who replies to this post with I'll take it! in the subject. Just link me to your Lightning Round thread.

Obviously, use of AOOO is entirely optional and up to the Offeror and the Fic Recipient. Right now, because AOOO only hosts fic, it's also limited to stories only.

Lastly, thanks to glockgal who donated an LJ gift cert so the comm is now "paid" and ad-free!

I'd be happy to help out with organizing a list by fandoms--including heading the organizing efforts--but I definitely wouldn't be able to do it alone.

A suggestion: assign each compiler a chunk of the alphabet (A-C, D-F, etc.), and then have them compile all the fandoms that fall within those letters.

I'd be happy to help with this.

I just wanted to thank you for putting all of this together. I'm taking an Intro to Popular Culture class this semester, and on the first day of class, our professor wanted us to say our favorite aspect of pop culture. I said internet fandom. You, and all of the amazing people who are participating in this, have reinforced that for me. This is truly an amazing thing to witness and be a part of.

Gratuitous icon reply! What a wonderful moment, and hope you enjoy the class!

I have a list with the offers for the Yu-Gi-Oh fandom at my livejournal, which I will try to update regularly: http://heleentje.livejournal.com/34788.html

If you (brilliant, amazing) people want to use it, feel free!

And it looks like someone's already done it. Wow.

I posted 2 icons to the post yesterday that had icons in it, I'm not sure if you saw them because you didn't comment.

I'll help with the "random" post organizing it if you'd like

FYI, we have lists for Smallville and DC:

Another person here with an AO3 invite to give out, if someone would like.

I'd like to participate, but have no idea how to. Please email me or message me, kakiolsen@yahoo.com.

Can you ask your questions here? I'm running around and travelig today and someone else may be able to answer your questions more rapidly than I can.

May I have the other invite?

For the next admin update...

I now have some AO3 account codes for people who want to create an account and add their story/ies to our collection.

People can contact me at smallwaldo at gmail yadda.

I'll get back to the first batch when I get home from work tonight and if I run out I'll ask for some more. :)

Re: For the next admin update...

Can I tweet about this? We are now on Twitter at http://twitter.com/help_haiti_LJ

Got it! I lost your post from earlier so thanks for reminding me. I'll fix it later this evening when I'm back at my laptop.
