[personal profile] zvi posting in [community profile] remixduello
I'm preparing to start round two of this challenge.

Some changes:

1) I now have a finer understanding of how mods can manipulate signups, so I think that I can now do away with required fandoms. Instead, people would make requests in multiple fandoms. However, everyone will need to recruit friends from the fandoms you plan on nominating, since I won't be assured of lots of overlap.

2) There are three possibilities for the Melee (people being able to do remixes without signing up or volunteering for their story to be remixed.)

A) I might just kill it. There is already a non-exchange, no deadline remix ([community profile] remix_goes_wild), so the accessibility issues I was trying to address are addressed elsewhere, and, with the change in signup, the small fandom issue I was trying to address last year is gone. Also, I wasn't very good at running it, and I dislike doing things I am not very good at.

B) If someone else has an idea of what should happen with it and would like to run it, you could. The only thing that I would ask you to do is run it through the AO3 as a prompt fest subcollection of Remix Duello. You could have whatever rules you wanted, and I wouldn't interfere, and I'd give you posting access on this comm. In effect, it would be a co-branded, contemporaneous exercise.

C) The reason for running [community profile] remixduello in the first place is to have a remix challenge with restraint, where the story you are to remix was picked for you, as an extra special remix challenge. (Also, to let you pick exactly which story got remixed, to say, "I want to see where someone takes that story.") The Melee got rid of both of those aspects of the challenge. I think a little bit of that could be restored if I reorganized it so that people could nominate stories as Melee prompts, but only one per fandom. Would that still be of interest to people?

This "one per fandom" idea sounds interesting. Let's hear some more about that.
