Very exciting! Can you please remind me, is character matching OR or AND? It didn't make a difference to my requests or offers, but I should know which it is when I'm writing the prompts in my letter.

It's supposed to set you up based on character matches, but it may end up being just fandom if there's matching problems. Prepare for both options.

Hey, wait. I'd be happy with AND or OR character matches, but everything up to now has implied that characters are part of the matching, and I made my sign-up based on that. It seems unfair to me to change that on people without warning after signups are final. If you need to ask people to adjust, that's one thing, but I don't think you should assign people to write something they didn't sign up for!

I see now that the FAQ says "It'll be done on an 'Or' basis for characters for ease of matching," so I'll write my prompts on that basis. It might be helpful to remind people of that when assignments go out.

*hands on face in SHAME*

I was trying to cover for the fact I wasn't sure if the settings were working right.

Aw shit, I forgot to mention I'm doublechecking so it'll definitely still be or.

This is why there's such a huge space between now and the assignments going out - in case of bugs.

Okay. :) Thanks for doing this, and I hope it doesn't give you too much trouble.

I hope so too! The settings are kind of arcane.

Sorry for worrying you.

Looking forward to this! Now I just have to finish my letter.
