Announcement: moving to DW

rocks_not_dead
Ok, everyone. The poll is now closed and it has decided that we are moving to Dreamwidth. Also, an anon was nice enough to get me some paid time so I can move the comm right away, so THANK YOU, ANON! :)

Anyway, as soon as this has gone up and I've ETA'd the current meme post, I'm going to see about moving the comm to dreamwidth.

For those of you still seeking to make an account there, I don't think they've put invite codes back in use yet. If they have, there are comms on lj and other places on the net where people offer their invite codes.

However, you do not necessarily need a dw account to continue participating in the meme.

See you there.

ETA: Hi, just want to let you know I'll post more info and reply to comments when I can. The comm has been moved to dw and I'm still trying to tweak it a bit over there. I don't have as much access to the internet at the moment because my laptop is in repair. So bear wth me. Thanks. :)

UPDATE: 13/01/2012: I've restored the correct order to posts and have changed the theme to a black font on light background one. I'm going to look into getting an lj-like one later on. Also, all activity from the meme posts will now be moved to dreamwidth. And custom comment view is off, so we're now as set as I can make us for today. :)

Also, answering the question of the person who asked about the archive, I haven't forgotten that we kinda need one, so I'll be making an announcement about that soon. Probably once I know that we're working on dw.

(Please note that with some time of waiting in the dreamwidth queue the entire community including all comments and settings can be moved to dreamwidth.)


Poll #1805782 Move to dreamwidth or stay on lj?
This poll is closed.

As for so many other memes recently, it's time for us to decide now, too. Do we want to move the meme over to dreamwidth or stay on lj?

move to dreamwidth
102(58.3%)
stay on lj
73(41.7%)


I'd also like to say, for those who don't know yet that dreamwidth is going invite code free til the end of the year. However, you can also post without having an account here.

The poll will close January 7th.

Anon Meme Part 3

rocks_not_dead
Now that we have moved the meme to dreamwidth, all commenting will be moved there as well. The community and posts still work exactly the same and are in the exact same order. Additionally, commenting anonymously works just like on livejournal.

Even for logged in posting you do not need a dreamwidth account. You can simply log in with OPEN ID. To do so, have livejournal and dreamwidth open and be logged into your livejournal account. Ony dreamwidth select "log in with Open ID" and it will ask you for your livejournal address. username.livejournal.com

Livejournal will then quickly come up with a page where you confirm that the journal you're accessing is yours. This feature does not give dreamwidth access to your livejournal account.

IMPORTANT: If your comment, request or fill does not show up on the dreamwidth comm you will have posted it after the data was transferred from livejournal. In this case, please repost it on dreamwidth. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

NOTE: Today on 13/01/2012 I have not yet had time to update the links on the dreamwidth comm's meme entries. Therefore they will still lead to livejournal. Sorry abot that and I'll fix is asap.

The dreamwidth comm is here: http://t-and-b-anon.dreamwidth.org/

The lj meme posts have now been closed. Please move to the dw ones.

concerning the Delicious archive

rocks_not_dead
Hi everyone.

As some of you might know and have seen, Delicious (formerly owned by yahoo) has been taken over by a new company (AVOS) and changed completely.

When the migration to the new servers was announced it was agree or lose the archive, so of course I agreed. At that point I didn't know how badly prepared AVOS was for the takeover and that most promised new features would be incomplete and some of the old ones missing completely. In addition, their support services are practically impossible to contact unless you have an email programme (such as Outlook) on your computer. Which I don't.

I am fed up with this and therefore moving the archive to a more reliable source *knocks on wood*; livejournal.

This will take a while, but will bring with it one huge advantage. Everyone will be able to help archive new prompts and fills. This means that archiving will hopefully be faster and more complete.

So please be patien. I know Delicious is a mess and the tags aren't there, but unfortunately I can't do anything about it, currently.

Thanks.

Rules Update
viola liliana sanches
rocks_not_dead
Hi everyone. The recent poll on some of our rules is now closed. And now that lj is up and running again, I can finally post the results. Thanks for everyone who participated. These are the new rules and changes that are a result of this poll.

- With 70 above 58 votes it has been decided that there will be a limit to 4thing, 5thing etc. This means if you see that a prompt is seconded and thirded please do not continue this row.

- With 108 above 12 votes it has been decided that there will be some freeze periods.

- With 80 above 24 votes it has been decided that there will be a week's break between every round in which, however, fills can continue for all previous rounds.

These rules stand as of today.

I would also like to remind everyone to stay anonymous on the meme posts at all times, prompting and filling. As of today, all non-anonymous comments will from now on be deleted without warning.

And, as this issue has been recently brought to my attention, a note on constructive criticism.

If you insist on critiquing someone's story, here's some good, easy guidelines:

Bad, non-constructive criticism: "Your formatting sucks. Do it differently."
Guidelines for good constructive criticism:

1. Post about what you liked about the story.
2. Politely state what you didn't like as much.
3. Make a suggestion how you think it would have been better.

I will now go and amend all these rules on the meme posts.

Mod contact post
crazy little thing called moth
rocks_not_dead
Hi all. This is the post where you can contact the mod about issues.

Those issues are, but are not limited to, deletion requests due to missposting or wank, suggestions, concerns and whatever else you want to contact me for.

You may, of course, also still PM me if you prefer to do that.

Some small rules:

- Be respectful to your mod and other members.
- If your suggestion is turned down or a mod decision made that you don't like, it's nothing personal. But the mod decision stands.
- Don't post about the same issue in a row. I'm reading this post and I'll get to your request when I can.
- Again, please limit your comments to what this post is for.

Thank you. :)

In need of Delicious updaters
caged
rocks_not_dead
Hiya, everyone.

Well, the first freeze period is over and I can say it's been successful. Even without it we were and are getting a nice amount of fills in. And ever more prompts. I'm still working on the archive, but there'still a back log I haven't managed to work through yet.

Now I'm looking for a support team to help with keeping the archive updated. What I'm basically looking for is "a person a day".

One person takes over updating the archive for one day a week, every week. I will need someone for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I'll be taking over Saturdays, for now, and working through what prompts and fills are left from before.

I'm not expecting much, really. Delicious is easy to work. The one thing I need is that you're able to commit yourself and your time to this.

So, if you're interested, leave a comment here with which day you would like to update for. Since we only have a limited number, it will be first come, first serve basis.

It would also be great if we could get some backup updaters. Again, first come, first serve, but if you see the day you wanted to update for is already taken, please let us know if you'd be willing to do backup in case the designated updater can't make it.

Once the updaters have been chosen, I'll PM everyone with more information and release a list of updaters and backups.

So, hoping we'll soon have a nice team going here. :)

~rocks_not_dead

Updaters so far:

bigcutesmile - Sunday
amaronith - Monday
rocks_not_dead - Saturday
yuechuu - Friday
konzenyfujima Tuesday
medinent Wednesday

Updaters, please join this comm so I can grant you access. :) We now have a place where we can gather and discuss the archive. t_b_archivers.

This is what we have covered so far. We still need an updater for Thursday.

UPDATE POST
caged
rocks_not_dead
Seeing as the meme has grown quite a bit by now, it's time to have a post where you can advertise your fills or updates on WIPs.

- Please quickly summarise somewhere in your comment which prompt your fill is for.

- Then post a link to your fill in the comment.

- Please don't post any new requests on this post, but keep them to the current part of the meme.

- As always, be polite, no wank.

- Please stay anonymous on this post as you would on the meme post.
