It's possible also that we'd do the matching in such a way that people could specify shipping/genre/rating preferences, whereas the big remix says that if you sign up you have to be able to work with anything in the fandom. Hand matching worked pretty well for us at a_conspiracy, but we only had 13 participants there. (I also did hand matching for 78 participants in...a very large number of fandoms at remixthedrabble round 6, but I'd rather not do something like that again!) I'd prefer to use the AO3's matcing process if we got more than 30 or so people, but I don't know how flexible that set-up will be since they're still working on it for RemixRedux.
Anyway, that's all a long way off, I just thought I'd mention that general intention in a public post, in case it helps people plan their commitments. Let me know if you're interested in participating or helping out, or of course if someone else is already planning to do something like this. And don't forget that sign-ups for RemixRedux end this Wednesday.
I've spent most of this weekend editing the Merlin pages at Fanlore, hanging out at the Fanlore chatroom and collaborating with some camelot_fleet peeps and Fanlore regulars like facetofcathy and frogspace. I still find Fanlore editing to be frustrating in a lot of ways but it's helped to have that interaction by gathering to do it as a group. Tonight some of us were talking about giving it another push in a month or so, not trying to work on it all the time or we'll burn out. I think we've gotten a lot of good stuff done this weekend and I'm especially impressed with heathershaped's work on the Gwen character page and ara's on Arthur and Merlin.
If you're curious, you can see the pages I've been editing on my user contribution page. I'd be especially grateful for any feedback or suggestions (either there on the wiki or here on LJ/Dreamwidth) on the Merlin/Gwen and Merlin/Uther pages. They're both pairings I ship and pages where no one else has written anything, so I feel very much like I've just written a "This is why I like this pairing! Here are some of my favorite fics!" but dressed up in fake neutral language. :)
