The March Meta Matters Challenge

March Meta Matters Challenge banner by thenewbuzzwuzz

Dates: March 1 to April 1

While creators have often used multiple sites to host their works, one type of work has generally been left out of fans' efforts at archiving and preserving fanworks -- meta. In many cases, meta posts have not been copied anywhere else other than the location where they were first posted, leaving them particularly vulnerable to loss.

So what if we can make a small dent in getting it saved? The March Meta Matters Challenge is focused on not just new meta, but making sure older meta gets a chance to be read and remain a part of fandom history. That's also why the challenge will be using the Archive of Our Own as a destination site.

The MMM Challenge will be a low stress event that provides you reminders and company as you locate and copy over your content. The challenge will also give you an opportunity to promote the meta you're preserving as well as some prompts to write new meta!

Find out more at our introductory post and get some detailed how-to's in our FAQ. The challenge is open to fans at any online location, so do stop by and join in!

Noel of Spike 2018



A bit too late in the day I know, but for those who'd like to participate a little something, be that an old piece of work or something new I thought the last two week in this month would be appropriate. I.E. The 17/12/18 to the 31/12/18. Does that work for people?

It's Time to Make Those 2017 Lists!

Before you happily kick 2017 to the curb, remember the things that were actually good about it, such as Buffyverse fanworks!

Gifting your fellow fans some lovely items to start the coming year with is a great way to spread a little cheer to all those wonderful writers, artists, vidders, mods, and more who have given you something to smile (or maybe cry) about during 2017.

buffyversetop5 will reopen for its 2017 session on January 1, 2018 at midnight UTC (check that in your time zone) and will remain open through 6 PM GMT on January 16th.

So start checking your download folders, your tags, your bookmarks and memories to see what you enjoyed this year and what you want to make sure the Buffyverse community doesn't miss from 2017. If you want to help spread the news, several artists have made us starter treats to entice friends to the party. If you have any questions about the session, ask them here!

A month from now at midnight GMT on October 28 (6 PM EST in the U.S. on Oct 27) we’ll be celebrating Halloween through all the time zones until midnight November 1. Five days for you to bring your all-time favorite recs of fics, vids, graphics, anything and everything fandom has produced in all the Whedon fandoms! All time periods before 2017 are eligible for posting and, as always, crossover content is A-OK, so get those lists ready!

We also want to alert anyone following us here that, following the movement of many people to Dreamwidth, either primarily or exclusively, we are opening the Dreamwidth outlet to posts during this session. So whether you want to post here or there, we hope to see names old and new here soon. Let us known if you have questions!

Noel of Spike 2016



Just a reminder to all you lovely folks here that this years noel_of_spike is open for posting. Dates will run from the 19/12/16 to 31/12/16.

We're not allocating days to people this year, but instead welcoming any and all contributions - fic, art, vids, meta - on any day, as long as they're Spike-related and vaguely holiday season/Christmas-y.

If you can produce something new, that would be great (we would love and adore it), but links to old favourites are also welcome. The main thing is to have a post (or ideally lots of posts) every day that the comm is open.

So come on, everyone, lets make noel_of_spike's tenth anniversary one to remember. :)
