I am interested in remixing other people's fanfic. I've looked around for comms, but they all seem to be dead for some reason.

There was [community profile] remix_goes_wild which sounded like an interesting project, and [community profile] remix_redux which seems to be dead even longer.

I don't care how the community would operate, be it exchange or whatever, I just want something that is not going to die out when the mod forgets about it or has no time to run it anymore. I'd do it myself, but I have no idea how to go about it. I'd want something accessible, like a list of authors or fanworks that are up for grabs and that anyone can edit and doesn't have to wait around for the availability of the mod or something.

As you see, I'm not very sure about what I want myself. I just want to be able to remix without having to find out about the author's transformative works policy.

Would anyone else be interested in a remix community? Or are there still some operating that I don't know of?

Suggestions are more than welcome.

Remix Redux existed longer as an exchange, though the last times I've seen it open it was organized through AO3 rather than on a comm (I think from 2010 onwards). There still was a Remix Redux challenge in 2012, though I'm not sure about last year.

[personal profile] musesfool decided to stop running the Remix challenge, but there was announcement in Remixers_Lounge over on LJ that she handed off the reins to a new mod, so there's going to be a Remix challenge this year.

This post with authors who've offered fic for Remix Goes Wild is a bit out of date but still might be useful.

Maybe make a Fanlore list? Then people can just add themselves, since it's a wiki, and you could link it from the main remix page and blanket permission page.
