Budget Cuts

Signs of Life

Hello, everyone!

I was going to reply to the previous post, but figured I might as well actually post on my own behalf.

My apologies to all, but especially to justice_turtle, who has been patiently trying to get me to at least wave hello from under my rock!  Turtle, you are a dear, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I have no valid excuses for not having responded, other than predictable but unsatisfactory bleating about fragile mental spaces and work schedules and illness and life and the inertia of having been hiding under rocks for long periods of time.

First of all, or maybe second -- I'm sorry I've been away for so long.  I've missed you folks.  It's been hard.

But, yes, there is still intelligent life in the universe, people want to revive the dearly loved comm, and if that means moving to Dreamwidth, I guess I shall have to go along.  My initial experience with DW was traumatically abusive, and I have been unwilling to have any more to do with it since then; but that was a lot of years ago, and hopefully there are enough LJ refugees there now that the abusers who piled on me last time won't have another chance.  /end anxious flailing

I'm currently importing this comm to DW, and am about to start sending DW comm invites to the members who are on DW.  If you're on DW but with a different name, you'll need to join on your own.  The invites supposedly allow me to set people up with posting access from the start.  I figure I'll do https://fic-rush.dreamwidth.org/ first, then worry about the 48 comm.

So, herein ends the long and glorious run of this comm on LJ.  Let us pack up the penguins and the other livestock, summon the ninjas, and seek the muse on another broad ocean!  Please signal-boost this if you will.

And please know how very, very important you all are to me --

Moving?

So, due to LJ going all Russian-rules, we haven’t had a round in nearly a year. I’d like to get things rolling again. There’s a backup comm over on Dreamwidth, but afaik only lolmac Beth has posting access to that one, and I haven’t been able to get ahold of her. So I’m thinking of creating a new Dreamwidth comm, ficrush or fic__rush or whatnot, and seeing if we could maybe get this one (these ones, _48 as well) imported over there so we don’t lose our history completely in the switch.

Thoughts, anybody? If someone else would like to be the comm creator or schedule maker or any of that, I’m quite amenable. Or if somebody knows how to get hold of Beth and possibly get posting access to her backup comms, that would be wonderful. I just don’t want the ‘Rush to die out completely if there’s still interest.

(Also, does anyone have opinions on what to name the new comms if we go that route, since fic_rush and fic_rush_48 are taken?)

Mods and people who want to mod, please let me know your availability, and if you have strong feelings on what kind of round it should be :-)

Round 83

I propose that we pencil in the weekend of the 18th and 19th for the round, unless I'm overruled by someone in authority before then :)

If not, I'll be back next week with a mod recruiting post - unless someone else wants a turn.

How about March?

It wasn't exactly that no one wanted to play, they just didn't want to play at the same time! Will we be more homogenous in March?
