You know how it is. You decide to dust off the old LJ after a couple of months of inactivity in anticipation of the new series of Doctor Who (tomorrow, folks, as if you weren't well, well aware of it), and discover that...well, I'm sure you're also well, well aware of the Putin-related Terms of Service unilateral auto-foot-shooting that Livejournal's owners have indulged in. I actually wasn't until I tried to log on yesterday, but I am now.

So, in all conscience, I don't actually feel I can continue to post things to LJ. This post, assuming the cross-posting still works, will probably be the last thing, unless the world unexpectedly comes to its senses at some point in the future. I'm not hopeful of this happening, I'll be honest.

This goes too for the Who@50 comm, to which I will post a separate announcement. The LJ version of the comm is effectively defunct as of now. It will, however, continue pretty much as normal over here on DW, if normal is the word. Not sure how to announce this on LJ without agreeing to the ToS, so I guess I'm just hoping people see it here on DW.

I had planned to be the last person on LJ along with lost_spook. Alas, it was not to be.

I now return you to your normal programming.

EDIT: And the crossposting did fail, so not really sure whether to log in over there to repeat this or not. If you read this, and you're still active on LJ, maybe pass the word on to anybody you know I know. Thanks. ;)

If you haven't already, please consider signing up for the The Whoniverse Minor Characters Ficathon at dw_guestfest:

Your host, the admirable [personal profile] lost_spook, describes it as "a low-pressure, traditional ficathon! Just assign yourself to a date in the sign up post, write a fic of at least 500 words (no maximum) for a minor/guest character (using a prompt or not)..." All I know is that I had a great time taking part in it last year and hope to do so again. If you also are a fan of great times, and Doctor Who, you should seriously consider taking part.

Brought to you by the inimitable [personal profile] lost_spook:

Seriously - get over there and sign up! I'll be very disappointed if nobody picks up the Spandrell/Gallifreyan police procedural prompt (unfortunately I already have my own bunny demanding attention...)

Seriously, Livejournal's foremost Doctor Who fanfiction reccing community needs fresh reccers - if you haven't already, please read the below post by the comm's admin [personal profile] nonelvis and give it your serious consideration:

Originally posted by [personal profile] nonelvis at WE ARE ESSENTIALLY OUT OF RECCERS. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
I hate to capslock at you, but seriously: we're out. [personal profile] clocketpatch will be reccing for the next couple of weeks, and [personal profile] ffutures has graciously volunteered for another stint in September, but other than that, my reccing calendar is empty.

Please, please, please: if you've ever thought about reccing but have never stepped forward, now's the time. If you've recced before and want to try again, now's the time. If you're not sure if you want to rec, contact me, and I'll talk you into it answer any questions you have about it. And if you have friends who might want to rec, please share this post with them.

Reccing periods last two weeks; complete rules and sign-up instructions in this post. Thanks, everyone, for any help you can offer here.

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, 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.)

For those of you who haven't seen it already, please go and check out [personal profile] dbskyler's Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Ficathon, either via that link just there or via this most excellent graphic:

Click on the image

Read the Welcome post to get an idea of what it's all about and then maybe leave a prompt and serious consider signing up to write something.

Those of you who plan to take part in the closing rounds of the [community profile] who_at_50 anniversary fanwork-a-thon-a-thon, meanwhile (signups for most recent round Three/Who Spinoffs still just about open - check it out!) will be pleased to know that [personal profile] dbskyler is more than happy for people to submit fic written for other 'thons and challenges - see the rules on the dw_50ficathon comm for details. For my part, I will take fanworks from absolutely anywhere, no questions asked, so if you wanted to kill two birds with one stone, the possibility is wide open. :)
