Prison Break Fic Exchange 2.0  
*Sigh* It's September 6th, and still no word from the pbficexchange moderator.

I guess you know what that means...

New community: pbfic_exchange2. Please join, and pimp madly in your journals (especially the T-Bag folks and the Michael/Sara people, since I don't have much f-list overlap with those readers/writers). I'll post a notice to prison_breakfic, since we are fortunately allowed such posts there. :)

For those of you whose fics for the Exchange Round 2 have already been posted, I will retrieve them from there and repost them in the new community.

Everyone else... please email your fics to me here: halfshellvenus @ livejournal dot com. I'd prefer them to be Word or .rtf documents so I can get the formatting, and I'll post them up to the new community. Be sure to include your prompts, including the author you wrote it for!

THEN, when the fics are posted, we will have guessing and The Reveal-- even though some authors have already posted the fics in their journals (because nearly 3 months is a darn long time to wait for the mod to reappear).

Now... given what happened with the other community, I would like to have a co-maintainer. Any volunteers? Not too many though, because then you'll be spoiled for guessing the fic authors!

Maybe you could try cross advertising at pbslash as well? I don't think that it's heavily moderated.

Isn't pbfic_exchange2 kind of ... doubledouble? Because the original name was pbficexchange. So either pbficexchange2 or pbfic_exchange are one change, but pbfic_exchange2 is two deviations from the original name.

;) I picked the name because the first was a little unreadable. Endlesswordmooshofmysteryandwaitwhatwasthepointofthecommagain?

Have you decided yet whether you also want to host a potential 3rd round? Or is this just wrap up of the old comm?

FIRST, there's finishing this round.

And after than, I entirely intend for there to be a third round. Although not immediately, obviously. :0

Hey there ;o) Go ahead and post an announcement at the fic journal
just put a note at the top that it was moderator approved before posting
so we don't get a bunch of people posting stuff non-fic all the time.

This is exactly the sort of thing we want to have for non-fic postings.

Thanks
PamalaX: Michaelfrustratedpamalax on September 6th, 2006 09:20 pm (UTC)
Nevermind, no need to add anything. I went in and tagged it
approved non-fic post and emailed the other mods.

Hope you have a great exchange this time around.

Hee-- I already updated it.

Thanks so much for your help, Pamala. :)

I hope we can finish this particular exchange the way it should have been done, and then have a chance to do a third one in about 6 months or so...

I joined and I'll post a link on my journal here shortly. I'm going to ask miss_mandy if she'll let me make a post about the new comm in some of her communities since she mods 5 or 6 of them. :P

I'd also be happy to help mod the new community if you don't get anyone else to do it. I know mooyoo was interested in starting up a new community for this thing too. Maybe she'll want to do it too.

Thank you, Julia. :)

I thought about the prisonbreak100 comm (we co-manage that one, but miss_mandy does virtually all the work, so I'll leave it up to her).

I'm waiting for mooyoo to chime in-- I suspect she's at work right now. But we'll see, and I'll get back to you if she's not interested. :)

*raises hand to volunteer*

Sad that almostforgiven hasn't returned, but a this point she may never be back. Have you thought about contacting each participant individually (even if only a comment in their LJ)? Just to at least make sure you get everyone's fic from the last round and that everyone knows what's going on.

Damn, wish there was a way to post in the old comm. But then I guess we wouldn't be having this problem in the first place...

Whoo-hoo! *smooches*

That's what I'm starting to think. If I'd heard word one from her, I wouldn't have considered this. But the email I sent directly on this topic went out 3 weeks ago, and no response. Plus her journal says she expected to be back mid-August, and here it is September. So all we can do is plan for the not-coming-back case. And hope she's not too upset if she finally does. :(

Yes-- my plan was to see what we got in terms of emails (because I know I can't get all the fic up at once) and in people friending us. After that, I'd planned to chase the stragglers down one painful LJ comment at a time. ;) You can see why that's the delayed plan...

Damn, wish there was a way to post in the old comm. But then I guess we wouldn't be having this problem in the first place...
No kidding. *Sigh* If we could do that, people could email us their fics and we'd post them up to the old comm.

The lesson here: never fly solo on LJ. Or if you do, make some *&%#~!! accomodations if you're going to be gone for awhile!

I'll add you as co-mod, just so we don't have that happen to US. ;)

I'm sure she'll understand (or at least, she should understand, considering). And if she does and wants to take over the exchanges again, we can easily work it out.

Gotcha. There wasn't a ton of people (what, 20 or so? Something like that?), so hopefully word will spread quickly. There's also all of the other random, non-fic PB comms to help let people know and get people into it, although at this point the effort is probably more on getting all of the original members of the comm back than getting new people.

*Sigh* If we could do that, people could email us their fics and we'd post them up to the old comm.

*double sigh* Yeah. Oh well.

The lesson here: never fly solo on LJ. Or if you do, make some *&%#~!! accomodations if you're going to be gone for awhile!

Yes. I would say at the very least let someone else know that you might be out of commission for a while and bring them in on it. I understand why a community like this is better off with limited posting access, but if that's the case there should me more than one mod so that, yeah, this right here doesn't happen.

I'll add you as co-mod, just so we don't have that happen to US. ;)
