What did we reckon? Spoiler: I loved it so much I haven't done my usual instant reaction post because I want to write something longer.

Hey all -- the Spring Equinox vidders have now been revealed! You can see who made your favorites & if your guesses were correct on the Archive of Our Own collection listing. Thank you to all our vidders and vidwatchers for making this first Equinox exchange a success!

Only two more days to go before we reveal who made what in Spring Equinox 2017: Vids in Space! Reveals are happening on Saturday, April 29th about mid-morning (Eastern Time).

If you have any last-minute guesses to make, now's the time to do it in the Guess the Equinox Vidder post.

Code push scheduled for Sunday night

We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT / 3am UTC on Sunday, Apr 30 (or May 1 for you transatlantic types.).

I don't have a list of changes for you yet, but most will fall into the following categories: things users have complained about to support volunteers, things support volunteers have complained about to developers, things [staff profile] denise has complained about not working the way she expects them to (and as we all know, The Boss is Always Right), and things that were printing warnings over and over in the production server logs, making it hard to spot when less frequent, more urgent errors were being printed. Oh, and also all the unused code I ripped out at the roots, which if you notice that, I did it wrong.

To sum up: we are rolling out a bunch of requested changes, so thank you all for your feedback!

If you're new to Dreamwidth and interested in tracking our development process, our commit logs are published to [site community profile] changelog and [community profile] changelog_digest, and every month or so, one of our volunteers will translate those often-cryptic entries into witty, informative code tours! The most recent one was published on April 1, so we're about due for a new one. Hint, hint.

We'll update here again to let you know when the code push is imminent!

Guess the Equinox Vidder!

Now that Spring Equinox Exchange 2017 is live, it's time to play our very first round of Guess the Equinox Vidder!

Remember: if you already know who made the vid, don't reveal the vidder; inside information ≠ a guess. And if someone guesses you correctly, don't comment to say so! (At least, not until after reveals.)

If you want an idea of how this has worked previously, since this is the very first Equinox Exchange, here are the guessing posts from Festivids 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. (That's a lot of guessing!)

Guesses, anyone?

Is Capaldi more Tom-ish this season?

There's been a couple of times in episodes where he's done a sudden mad grin and I've thought "that's very Tom", and then I was scrolling through the f-list this morning and saw this:

Peter Capaldi looking like Tom Baker

and genuinely did a double take. The wicked, crinkly, mischievous TOMNESS of that is just off-the-scale as far as I am concerned.

What do you guys think?

Am especially in love with Bill.

Vids in Space are live!

[personal profile] frayadjacent posting in [community profile] equinox_exchange
The very first Equinox Exchange vids are live!! The theme is Vids in Space. Watch all 54 of them at the A03 Collection for the exchange.

All participants should have received an automated email with a link to their gift vid(s), but if you didn't, archiveofourown.org/users/[yourpseud]/gifts will get you there. Please let the mods know right away at equinoxvids@gmail.com if anything is awry with the vid for you, your own revealed vid posts, or anything else.

Happy viewing!

This is a post  analysing Bill's character in all my slightly interesting quotes in the episode. I would like to thank Chakoteya transcripts, and also you, for your patience.

The very first Equinox Exchange go-live is only about 24 hours away! Once vids go live, you can find them at the AO3 Collection for the exchange.

Vids in Space!

Equinox treats deadline extended!

[personal profile] frayadjacent posting in [community profile] equinox_exchange
The deadline for treats for Equinox Exchange (Vids in Space!) has been extended! Try to have vids in by 23:59 UTC on Friday April 21. That's 8 PM on the US East Coast.

But, just FYI, any treats submitted after that time, but before go-live, will still make it in! Go live happens when mods get up on Saturday morning in the Eastern US. It will not be delayed for any unfinished treats.

In other words, you probably have another 6 hours after the deadline of 23:59 UTC April 21 to get your treat in before go-live.

Submit treats here!

The importer has (mostly) caught up!

[staff profile] denise posting in [site community profile] dw_maintenance
Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!
