erda: dreamwidth-daffodils (dreamwidth-daffodils)

Just a few things before I put up the community.

First, enough people expressed concern about the length of time their content would be tied up that Six Weeks for Dreamwidth is now Three Weeks for Dreamwidth.

Tentatively, the start date for the fest is Monday, April 26.

Just to make sure it is clear, anything that you choose to create and offer for this festival is with the understanding that it be posted only on Dreamwidth for three weeks from the date you post it, with the intent of stimulating conversation and connection here at home. After three weeks, you may post the content anywhere you wish. During the time that the festival is running, you are free to post other content anywhere you like, converse and interact with people, and do exactly as you would normally do, except as regards content you have created specifically for the Three Weeks for Dreamwidth Anniversary Festival. Only content created for and entered in this fest must remain on Dreamwidth.

People who are concerned that their content is available by feed. I am not going to worry about it. If you post to Dreamwidth and some people can access that content by feed, that is not a huge deal.

I hope to spotlight some of our communities here, but since it is clear that some people will not want to be involved in this fest, I feel I need your express permission in order to talk about your community. Community maintainers, if you wish to be mentioned on the main festival comm, please let me know in comments, by pm, or anyway you like.

There will be at least one friending meme. We will be using one main comm to link things, and emphasizing posting to existing comms. We will be including both fannish and non fannish content. There will be totally awesome memes in private journals.

Does anyone know if there is a community where we can begin dropping prompts so that people can think about/start working on them? I know of several comms that offer prompts, but are there any that accept prompts? Alternately, I like the idea of an exchange, but only if I have someone else to run it.

Also, about the tag feed. I think a tag feed is a good idea, but I do not feel comfortable pursuing it. Would someone like to volunteer to look into this?

Please, please, unless your dwircle is identical to mine, give me a signal boost. This will not be successful if I can't reach people.

ETA: the festival community is here

Just let me know what the agreed-upon tag is (should be something that quasi-explains the project as part of the tag) and I'll make Mark create it :)

Signal boosted!

I'm pretty excited about this, but I am also a pretty backwater-dwelling sort of a girl. So maybe, when the main comm goes up, you could have a post where people who want to organise things can find co-conspirators with whom to collaborate? I love collaboration!

I'm really excited about this fest, and have lots of ideas for content making :D

I mod [community profile] sexy_war a new comm for Band of Brothers, Generation Kill, and The Pacific fans to share their works, and I would love for you to add it to the list of comms available for the fest. I'm going to post to the comm about his, and of cause to my Dw.

I think this sounds like an awesome idea! I would be happy for any of my communities to be promoted (uh, something I really need to work on<--bad maintainer), and I will boost signal ASAP and definitely participate.

My comms:

[community profile] spaceopera
[community profile] tabletweaving
[community profile] historicalembroidery
[community profile] sca_attire
[community profile] sca_documentation
[community profile] naturaldyes

Obviously some of these are of very narrow appeal.
