DOINK! 2014 - Signup Form Preview, Supported Fandoms, and Proxy Instructions!

It's quite close to signups, so we want to make sure that those who will not be around during signups (or need a proxy for any other reason) still have a chance to register for DOINK! 2014, and that everyone else knows what to expect! Signing up this year should be exactly like last year, except for offering more canons than ever!

Arranging a Proxy

While we hope that registering should only take a few minutes of internet time — especially if you've thought out your prompts in advance! — in cases where you're pretty sure you can't make it during the signup period, we recommend using a proxy. A proxy will complete your signup for you and check its correctness. Please note that if you choose to use a proxy arrangement, you and your proxy are responsible for your signup; the mods cannot change your information once signups close.

We'll try to make the proxy process as painless and easy as possible, though! Here are the steps to arranging a proxy:
  1. Prepare answers to each signup question; use the signup form preview below. Communicate these to your proxy.

  2. Leave a comment on this post (comments are screened) with your AO3 name and the passcode you plan to use. This will alert the mods to expect a proxy and will help us ensure there is no abuse of the system.

  3. Your proxy will fill in the signup form during the signup period. The form will generate an automatic confirmation email — make sure your own email address is used in the signup, not your proxy's, as this is the address we will use to send your prompts and other communication. These confirmation emails are also used by participants to double-check their signup, so if your proxy is worried about not being able to check their work, rest assured — there is a confirmation screen right before submission where all the answers can be reviewed. We recommend that your proxy save the text on this screen, just in case they find something wrong later; this will make it easier for them to go back and make changes.

  4. If you find an unsolicited confirmation email in your inbox, you will have 24 hours after signups close to appeal your inclusion in the exchange. The mods will only take appeals for extracting a signup from the exchange entirely; we will not be able to edit errors — ensuring correctness is up to you and your proxy.

If you have any questions about the process, please let us know!

Signup Form Preview and Supported Fandoms

While we'll go over some of the essentials of signups again in the post opening signups week, we're previewing the process now so that you have time to arrange proxies — or just get your answers ready ahead of time!

Like last year, we have a field for DOINK's relationship with your work on our tumblr — check out that post for details! There's been one more change to the tumblr policy, covered under "Reblogging Tumblr Content" in this post.

Supported Fandoms

This is the full list of supported fandoms. Remember, DOINK! only supports canons which are in wide circulation before signups open, so that people have enough time to familiarize themselves with it. We look forward to supporting even more canons with each round!

Please note that, throughout the form, you can only mark individual canons, not entire compilations — each markable canon has a "»" beside it. If you're using a proxy, please make sure that your proxy knows exactly which canon(s) to choose.
