Can any of help out with the daily check in posts on the weeks of 13th to 19th and 20th to 26th?

At the moment I can only do one week of check ins myself, so any extra help with the day to day running of the comm, in any way at all is greatly appreciated. If you can't do a full week, than any days that you can manage is absolutley fine.

Thanks :)

Hi folks, a very rare mod post.

I’m not sure if this has been done before or not, so I thought that it would be good for us to have a feedback and suggestions post.

This is where you all tell me what is working, what isn’t working and anything else in-between, and although I aren’t screening comments, you can also PM me about anything related to the community at any time.

Mod contact info — I will get around to changing the mod contact info on the profile page because I’m not certain if the people named as contacts for the community are actively using Dreamwidth anymore.

Tags — I’m going to leave the tags alone for the time being but I would like to tidy them up a bit because there are several that haven’t been used for a long time and I still need to figure out what to do with those.

Over to you.

Hi everyone -- due to a combination of personal things, I find myself having less & less time to devote to this community. Which is sad! I've gotten so much writing done through this group, & met so many fabulous people -- I think we could keep doing great stuff, & even more great stuff, but I'm not at the point where I can keep shepherding it along myself.

Is anyone interested in co-modding the comm with me? Having one or two more people would be really useful -- I think the main thing right now is coordinating the WIP challenge (finding people to do check-in posts, & reminding them when their week is up, posting sign-ups, etc.), but also if people wanted to run regular writing sessions or... do any other sort of group activity, that would be fabulous.

If you're interested, I'd be happy to talk it through if you have questions -- you can comment here or PM me.

Thanks for being here, everyone -- every time someone says that they've found something here useful, it makes me really happy! I hope we can keep on making this a useful, encouraging space for us fic writers.

The tiny thing in this post first: I've been messing around w/the tags, in an effort to make them nested & neat, & much easier to browse if you want WIP challenge stuff that isn't a check-in post, or info on writing sessions in your time zone, etc. I think there's a bug that still needs tweaking, but we'll see what Support says. BTW, if any of you have been interested in nested tags but couldn't find the info on how to use them, my support request has some useful explanations!

On to betas! There's been consistent interest in finding betas through the comm. How can we make this happen for you? I thought maybe a list of people volunteering to beta might be helpful, but I know that such lists go out of date almost immediately. There's even [community profile] beta_masterlist, but that doesn't seem to be active either.

Looking at the other side of the equation, if you need a beta, feel free to post & ask! If we get to the point where we have a dozen beta-seeking posts a day, we'll have to rethink that, but for now it's absolutely fine.

But I'm still really stuck on wanting a way to keep a list of volunteer betas. Is there anyone else who would find this useful? I ask partly because of this comm's original focus on fic-writing newbies, & my experience as a newbie myself (which wasn't so long ago...). I was terrified of posting fic, & especially putting my username to it--this is why my AO3 name is different!--& certainly at first, I was too afraid to ask anyone I knew for a beta. None of my friends were in the fandom, & well, yes, I could've posted to the fandom's LJ comm. But it has over a thousand members. Way too intimidating for me at the time. Eventually I got my nerve up to ask a friend of mine to beta for me, & things got better from there.

But still, I agonized so much over daring to ask for a beta! I can't be the only person who went through that. Of course, even if we had a volunteer beta list, people would still have to approach a beta directly, but I think it would've felt less intimidating to me.

Also, I like betaing, & (time/energy permitting, fandoms matching if need be) would be happy to do more of it. It'd be nice to find a way to note that to people in this comm.

Any ideas on how to do this & keep it relevant & up-to-date without being too burdensome? Maybe it's impossible, but thoughts welcome!

Welcome!
