Story time is here!

At last everyone has a story (and one lucky recipient, for reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, has two)! Stories are being revealed, and gift notifications should be going out from the AO3 as we speak. If you haven't gotten an email yet, you can check 'My Gifts' on your AO3 dashboard, and your story should be available there.

To explore the 60 stories being exchanged today, visit Teen Wolf Holidays 2013!

Enjoy, give lots of love to our anonymous authors, and feel free to promote the stories you love on twitter and tumblr! We have two anonymous weeks to explore all the stories before authors are revealed on December 15. Please remember to keep it secret until then!

Also, a tip for authors, borrowed from our Teen Wolf gift exchange siblings over at tw_fallharvest

An important note about Published Dates on fest fanworks on AO3!
The AO3 uses the date a fanwork is uploaded as the Published Date, this has the potential to make works in our exchange virtually impossible to find when people look for new fanworks by date. For example, if someone posted their work to the collection on November 20, then by the time the work is actually revealed today, it might be on page 28.

Luckily, the AO3 has provided us with a very easy work-around: simply to edit your work once it's been revealed and change the Published Date to the current date. By doing so, you can ensure that your fanwork will appear at the top of the recent works list on the day your work is revealed. We realize this is a bit of a nuisance, and changing the Published Date is entirely optional, but we think it's a small price to pay to give you the widest audience possible for the work you created for the exchange.</lj-comm>

Um... am I doing something wrong? My gift doesn't seem to have been revealed along with everyone else's. :(

We're trying to figure out why it won't release - opening a ticket momentarily!

It's listed in two exchanges--Teen Wolf Holidays 2013 and Teen Wolf Holidays. It's probably the separate exchange listing that's keeping it anon.

Ah, that would do it. Thanks!
Dec. 1st, 2013 10:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah, the two exchanges thing was my guess too. :) Hopefully it can be resolved easily - I'm excited to read it. Thanks mods!

Oh, it's not the one I wrote - it's my gift. :) So I can't edit it, unfortunately!
Dec. 1st, 2013 10:48 pm (UTC)
Hah, sorry about that! It's been a long day. :) We've contacted your author about making the edit! Sorry for the delay!

It's okay! Thank you for all your hard work!
Dec. 1st, 2013 11:09 pm (UTC)
Your gift should be visible now! Happy reading!

Thank you, mods, for all your hard work!

Hear, hear! Thanks, mods.

Could someone explain how exactly to edit the published date? It may be AO3 being down 99% of today but I can't see any way to directly edit the date, and a small edit to the fic didn't change the date. Many thanks.

When you're on your story page, click the Edit button, then scroll down just past where you put in all the authors notes and everything.

The box to change the date appears when you click the box next to Set a Different Publication Date.

THANK YOU! :D Very easy.
