Dokuga Holiday Exchange Sign-ups! 2019 7 Months, 4 Weeks ago Karma: 54
First up, the banner for the previous year is almost finished. Will post it on the previous year's post when it is done.

And not sure if I mentioned this last year, but last year was my final year of hosting the exchange. Though I will be here to help for this year, I am now handing the reigns over to Kaoruhana. All links should stay the same, including the email and the guidelines page on LJ, but will inform you of any changes.

Sign-ups for the 12th annual Dokuga Holiday Exchange are officially open!

Quick recap: The holiday exchange is a secret Santa with stories and art being gifted. We have been running this exchange since 2008! All the information you need can be found here: Sign up guidelines

Please follow the directions listed here to sign up. The exchange email is dokugaexchange@gmail.com. If you have any questions, please fill free to post them here, email them or send me a PM.

Sign-ups close September 30th!

Side note: As we do every year, we would love to have someone make a special fanart for us for the participation banners. If it is something you would be interested in, please PM me. I do apologize for not getting the banners in for last year, they completely slipped my mind, but I will have them done before this year's exchange is finished.

As Hairann said, I'll be starting to run the Exchange form this year. Please feel free to also PM or e-mail me if you have any questions.

I look forward to seeing the sign-ups!

So we have to use holiday photos this year a prompt instead of just listing prompts?

Yes, that's the "prompt" this year. We're asking that it have no people in it, but anything else holiday related works. Hope that cleared things up.

Sorry about that! My sister got her wisdom teeth taken out Monday, and I'm only now getting a bit of time to get back to things now that she's healing.

Apologies for the delay!

UPDATE: The first story for the 2019 Dokuga Holiday Exchange has been posted! Due to certain technical difficulties, all stories will be posted as comments under the "2019 Guidelines" Thread.

As a reminder, please DO NOT POST your stories on any site until ALL stories for this year's Exchange have been posted. You'll know it's time because I will announce it on Dokuga and on the thread.

Without further ado, Merry Christmas!

Here's the link for the first story from this year's Exchange! (Yes, all 15 comments!)

Due to the content of the story, it would be rated MA on Dokuga, so no YIMS!

Thank you Wiccan! And amazing work LadyoftheLemons! I couldn't put my computer away as I read it when you first sent it, much to the consternation of my airplane neighbors!

Honestly, one of my favorite things about this time of year, for the past few years or so, has been seeing the amazing stories/artwork coming out of the Exchange!

On a side note: story 2 has been posted. Once again, due to the content of the story, it would be rated MA on Dokuga, so no YIMS

GAH! Link doesn't work... nvm.

I'm sure that you, as well as the other participants, can understand that LiveJournal is being a brat and preventing kaoruhana from posting ANYTHING but comments. Which, of course, is totally ridiculous AND bogging up the works here. Hairann has been working with kaoruhana but they have been unable to come up with a fix so far.

I would anticipate that kaoruhana will be posting an explanation along with ideas for getting those stories posted sometime in the very near future. She's been working her fanny off in a strictly volunteer position here, so let's cut her some slack, 'k?

Long story short, it's set that only a moderator can post and I don't have the ability to make her a moderator to fix the issue. For next year we will create another site to remove this problem.

For now, I've added the two stories she already posted as actual posts, they are member locked because they are rated MA. If you can't see them, make sure you are a member and not just watching.

As soon as I hear back from her I will start posting the other stories as well. Not sure which order she was putting them in and don't want to step on her toes.

Please bear with us with the growing pains and remember that this is the holiday season. There are bound to be some stretches of time without any posts--as there have been with me every year since I took over.

The stories will be posted before the end of the year .

The others are rated MA so they are member locked. Make sure you are a member of the group and not just watching.
