Hello all,

I have posted the themes for the challenges for the rest of the year. These deadlines are pretty sturdy, so there will be little room for extensions. Please, feel free to start getting those writing muscles flexed now! :)

Participation has been dwindling, which is to be expected between a long break of new episodes and summer, but as autumn approaches I hope we can pick things back up again. The amount of participation will always give me an idea of it's worth keeping this community open, especially after the holiday break. If anyone has any thoughts on this, let me know. If we could improve anything, like themes or deadlines or anything else, I'm open to suggestions.

I apologize for the delay of banners again. I have started on them. Who knew a screaming infant could dictate your free time! I should have those up this week, latest next week.

Your mod,

Well, I logged in today to find that Photobucket has blocked all my images, and I've been using them for over a decade. Sooo.... There will be a short period of time this weekend where I will be finding an alternative place for our banners, promo banners and journal info.

Until then please bear with me. If you need a banner and missed it on one of my posts. Please let me know and I'll get that to you.

Hello members and watchers!

Given the recent development of LJ servers, I have imported [livejournal.com profile] who_contest to Dreamwidth as a backup. Many of you post your stories directly to the community, so I wanted to make sure these wonderful entries were backed up somewhere else in case something happens to LJ...

I'm not saying anything will, I just wanted to let you know I will be importing this community to dreamwidth to save our stories. All contests will still continue on LJ and be imported to DW. Nothing will change on how the contests will run, just know that your stuff has been saved.


Looking forward to coming back from the break soon! Thanks.

Your mod,

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] nonelvis at Calufrax is back! Or we will be, once we have more reccers.
Dear lovely community members,

I apologize for letting things go dark here for -- yikes! -- slightly more than a month. I have no real excuse beyond having needed a break myself, but I'm here again and want to crank things back up, hopefully starting July 18.

In order to do that, though, we need reccers. Lots of 'em, honestly, because we're out. As always, everyone, new and old reccers alike, is welcome to rec. All you need to do is select 4-10 stories that haven't been recced before and that meet the comm's fairly basic rules (well-written/formatted, no bashfic, etc.). Reccing periods last two weeks; complete rules and sign-up instructions in this post.

Tumblr, Facebook, Google+, and other users reading this: you don't need a LiveJournal account to rec! If you're interested in reccing, you can comment in the sign-up post, leave me an Ask on Tumblr, or email me at nonelvis42 on Gmail. (Note: if you're a Facebook user who wants to volunteer, please contact me by email; I have no Facebook account, and LJ doesn't send OpenID users comment notifications, so I have no reliable way of reaching you beyond email.)

Please share this post far and wide! The community needs you. And I appreciate each and every one of you who's stepped up to rec (many of you more than once) or simply read or followed the comm. [livejournal.com profile] calufrax is nothing without you ♥
