Here is the place to request invites for the AO3 in case you don’t have one yet!

What is the AO3? It is the Archive of Our Own, a multifandom archive for all types of fanworks.

Why do I need an invite? If you don’t have an AO3 account, this is why you’ll need one for Trekstock:

All fills for Trekstock (fills for prompts, not necessarily for the Jam Sessions) will be posted to the AO3 Trekstock Collection this year, not LiveJournal. So if you plan to make something for the prompts you need an account.

Also, we will be determining the winners for each round by counting up Logged In (or signed) kudos. You can only sign your Kudos if you have an AO3 account and are logged in at the time you hit the Kudos button. So if you plan to vote you need an account.

How do I get an invite? Two ways:

Sign up at the Invite Request page at the AO3. They should work through that list every few days to a week, there isn’t a super-long wait any longer.

Leave a comment on this post with your email address and someone will email you an invite. It may be a Mod, or it may be a good Samaritan who has an extra invite. If you send someone an invite please comment on their comment. The mods will delete any requests that have been fulfilled so everyone can easily keep track of who needs one. If you don’t want to leave your address publicly, PM the admiral_mod account with your email and a Mod will send you an invite.

Trekstock Prompt 1 Rec Post

 photo whispering1jpg-452times329-pixels1_zps2a4505dc.jpg

Prompt: Words to Live By

What Needs To Be Done: Rec existing fanworks that can be related to the prompt - in this case, all recced works should use a phrase, concept, or line of dialog in the work, though all works recced in the set don’t have to use the same phrase, concept, or dialog.

Recs should be posted in sets of five, all for the same Relationship. Post one rec set per comment. Points will go to the reccer, the Relationship, and the Band (if there is one).
Include in subject line: Relationship: ___, Band: ___
Include in comment body: Title, author, link to work for each rec. You may also include any warnings you feel apply, and why that work is so fabulous.

DUE DATE: 6/1 Midnight HST (Hawaii Standard Time). Comments to this post will be screened initially, and revealed on the due date.

let's party like it's 2399: love, sex and a new rock and roll theme. Will your ship survive?

Back, after a long hiatus, the community that brought you such infamous competitions as Ship Wars (no really, we spawned our own hate meme) and Ship Olympics, is here to announce a festival of free love and dirty sex we have decided to call Trekstock.

Finally, meet your Admirals for this year:

Edit 2: Signups will be open all through Trekstock, so feel free to jump on in whenever the mood strikes.

Multimedia Resource Post

This is a resource post for the multimedia aspects of the Games. I’m starting out with beginner links for those that are brand new, but guides that are aimed at more experienced users are fine too. Please comment with any guides or instructional posts you know of! Especially for art, as I don't know anything about creating or hosting art.

Your Command Staff are looking for a few good men a couple of extra folks to join our team of Admirals. Interested in seeing the behind-the-scenes process? Love being the one to make something great happen? We want you, then!

This will require an evening per week, plus a few extra commitments along the way. It is a moderate investment of time, more so before and after the Games begin and end. How much time will depend on the number of people who sign up. Ideally there will be enough people so we can divide the duties, but please don't sign up if you aren't willing to commit.

Please pm pslasher or claudia_nic if you’re interested!

(Trying this thing again!)  Your Admirals are preparing another Ship Games, to start after Star Trek Into Darkness is released.

Poll #1907561 Are you in?

Are you ready for another Ship Games?

Yeah Baby, count me in!
Nope, not this time around

This year we're taking advantage of the fantastic options the Archive of Our Own offers and are having the shippers post all fills directly to this years collection. We're also going to use the logged-in Kudos function as a polling method. That means you'll need to have an AO3 account to participate, so head on over to the Invite Request page and sign up if you don't have one.

Also, last year's shippers have been removed from st_respect in preparation for signups. We will admit those who sign this year's Manifesto after it goes up, which will be in a couple of weeks.  Feel free to Watch, but hold off on requesting membership for a bit.
