Hey, guys! I wanted to apologize again for neglecting the comm a little bit lately, but hopefully we can try to remedy that, here.
SEASONAL ROUND-UPS: The newsletter I was planning kind of fell through the cracks. Interest seemed low and RL got messy, so I let it fall by the wayside. I'm in the process of compiling a kind of summertime round-up, though, for all the Dark Angel fanworks that were posted to the comm over the summer. And maybe include relevant challenges, like the Dark Angel BB? We'll see how that goes over. If it's a hit, I'd be THRILLED to get some volunteers to help keep it going with other seasonal round-ups (fall, spring & winter). I can give you a template to work from—it's fairly simple, I think (similar to the Summer Fest Masterlist
), so anyone who's interested in possibly doing that, please let me know.
RECS: Just read something awesome and need to share instantly? The last few themed recs posts garnered little-to-no interest, so I've pretty much decided to let that go. The existing posts will stay up, and if anyone wants to add new recs to them, that's fine. Also, there is a general category: recs
tag, so you can post recs directly to the comm if you'd prefer. In fact, have a template:( Reccing template. )
DIY FUN: Given your mods are being buried in RL, anyone who's looking for some kind of Dark Angel challenge or meme where none are happening, and don't want to do it in their personal journal, feel free to let us know via PM or comments! I'm happy to let members host/organize stuff like that themselves on the comm whenever the mods are too busy. I can share existing templates, or help come up with guidelines/organization, if wanted/needed, or you can feel free to handle all that yourself. Just make sure to abide by the basic comm rules
, and to ask first, so we can make sure there are no scheduling conflicts. Having people throw simultaneous comment-fic memes, for example, might be slightly confusing and counterproductive.
LINKS: Just a quick FYI, I've updated the sidebar with links to the latest goings-on, and other DA comms you might be interested in checking out, if you haven't already.
QUICK POLL: Check all that apply.
Lastly, don't forget the suggestion box
is always open. Drop in and give us your thoughts anytime.
