Doers of darkness, there is one day left for our official Kaleidoscope Promotions Week!

We encourage you to continue to promote your rare chromatic fandoms of choice! The deadline for Kaleidoscope nominations is August 23, 9:00 pm Pacific Time (U.S.A.). You can check out our convenient countdown clock here. As always, feel free to post links here at [community profile] dark_agenda.

So far we have over 70 fandom and 300 character nominations! We've discovered that after 30 fandom nominations, the AO3 tag set interface only allows us to view 30 randomized fandoms at a time, so we plan to go ahead and begin approving/rejecting nominations soon. However, once a nomination has been approved or rejected, the nominator will not be able to edit it further. We will begin the process of approving nominations on 17 August 2012, which will give those of you who have submitted nominations already a chance to go back and edit if you so desire. Our tutorial for How to Nominate for Kaleidoscope & Other Information about the Nominations Process has information on how to edit nominations.

Since nominations need to be approved before they are visible on the tag set, and it is taking us time to review for typographical, romanization and language consistency, you can see the list of what has been nominated already at our 2012 Nominations spreadsheet. Except for the "Nominated Name" and "Kaleidoscope Wrangled Name" columns, which are protected, any can contribute and edit the spreadsheet.

However, please let us know if you have any typographical, romanization or language corrections to either the approved tags appearing in our tag set, Kaleidoscope 2012 Nominations, or the "Kaleidoscope Wrangled Name" column in our spreadsheet, or suggestions on how to wrangle names under "Nominated Name" column for fandoms and characters.

We'd like to remind everyone that in order to be eligible for Kaleidoscope, fandoms should be produced by chromatic creators in addition to featuring chromatic characters.

If you're still deciding on what to nominate or if you would like to strategize with other [community profile] dark_agenda members to maximize your five fandom slots, please use the comments below to let everyone know what you want to nominate.

Happy Fête Nationale (Congo) and स्वतन्त्रता दिवस (Independence Day of India)!
