Friends Only

This journal will now be (Semi) Friends Only.

99% of the entries will end up being locked, however, I'll still keep the episode posts available as public.

ETA 8 July: Actually, due to being overwhelmed by spam comments on so many of my unlocked entries as few as they are, EVERYTHING will basically be locked on this journal from here on out.

My fic is posted on fics_by_megan and my graphics/fanmixes/anything created for fandom that isn't fic are posted on ontheisland67, so even if I post things like that here, it'll be posted there as well.

Comment here to be added - as long as we've got something in common, I'm more than likely gonna add you back :)

ETA: If your journal is new - and there is no activity, etc. on it (say, b/c you'd previously been an Anon here) - let me know in just a little more detail who you are. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to share it in a comment. (I just want to know which Anons would be being added; you understand.)

Thanks, and until next time -

As of tomorrow, no more subject lines in comments on LJ

Originally posted by moerlin at As of tomorrow, no more subject lines in comments on LJ
I was gonna update this with much happier stuff, but for the past week I've just been so enraged with LJ's asshattery that I've had it to here.

In case you didn't know, on 12/12 they first announced sneakily on the Russian journal of LJ's design guy that with new changes being implemented tomorrow, there will be no more subject lines in comments and that this change was "non-negotiable" (good round-up and translation here). I'm sure you all realize that this will basically make fandom and RP communities unusable. LJ's staff, however, doesn't give a shit. At least 18 pages of 100% negative feedback didn't sway them.

They've backpedaled some and will make keeping comment subject lines optional in some S2 styles, but the default (that 99% of communities are running right now) will decidedly be subject-less! Not to mention that their new and frankly, fucking ugly design will take forever to load and make the site a pain to use on mobile browsers.

And oh, it looks like they might be taking away the drop-down menu to select icons as well, so you'll have to load all your icons as pictures to select them. Lovely. (I will beta-test tonight to see if this is actually true.)

Really, I don't know why I'm surprised. LJ is always fucking with the parts of the site that actually work and breaking them, so this is just another instance of that. Because seriously, who are subject lines hurting by just being there? (And no, it can't be a matter of server strain, considering the new "graphic" interface will definitely be using up more resources - so much fun when there's DDoS attacks!)
As far as I know, they've never once listened to their customers, so those thousands of comments already posted probably won't do shit. I've left a message expressing my concerns about the new comment pages here anyway; so if you want to do that too, go for it! If anything, it helps with the rage. ;)

FYI: Dreamwidth is feeling Christmasy has reacted to LJ's bullshit and has open account creation (no invite codes needed) for the rest of the week. Might be a good idea to get your back-up or new home, whatever the case may be, up and running now.


Five Acts: R5

Because I feel like it.... and I'm lazy right now so it's (mostly) the same as last round so... *shrugs*

+ Post a list of your five favorite acts/kinks to read about. Check out this list if you need some inspiration. At the bottom, add what fandoms/pairings you're interested in.
+ Read other people's lists; the master list of lists is here.
+ Post comment-fic based off of other people's interests.

*is looking for Chicon tickets*

I mean, seriously.

I am so freaking petrified of things going POOF before my $$$ comes in, and this last-minute stuff doesn't work for me.

Like, my $$$ won't come in until around Monday, Tuesday...

And, I mean, I have some... stashed away... but it would seriously drain my immediate funds, if you know what I mean.

If I was to use that, to buy from Creation now.


So anyone know of any General being sold elsewhere? Or Silver? *please*

*is totally begging*

Friends Cut

Okay, so I just did a semi-sort of friends cut.

Nothing major. It was either dead journals, people I never talk to/haven't talked to in awhile/can't remember why we're friends here in the first place, etc.

That kind of thing.

(If you can still see this entry, you're good :D)

But, since it is 1:30 AM, if I made a mistake and I shouldn't've cut you, kindly let me know :)
