H/C pinch hits, anyone?

Hurt/Comfort Exchange assignments are out and they have a slew of initial pinch hits! Go to [community profile] hurtcomfortex to check out the list and see if there's anything you might want to write. (I'm linking to the top-level community rather than the pinch hit posts because they're easier to view that way.)

While I'm at it, a question for people who run exchanges: how do you handle unassigned people in the AO3 assignment control panel, e.g. in a situation like this? I ran into this issue with SSR Confidential last year and ended up double-assigning someone (to myself) just to get it to stop giving me errors, but up until that point I hadn't realized the control panel doesn't let you just not assign people. It was enough of a pain with just one of them; I can't even imagine how it's handled in large exchanges that end up with dozens of pinch hits, unless they just assign all the unassigned people to the mods and then sort it out afterwards. Is there some easier way?
