Then she told me to make a to-do list pre my cousin's wedding in October. I totally made a to-do list. Except it's a fandom to-do list.
:D :D :D CROSS-FANDOM METAPHORS ARE LOVE. ♥
Yesterday in chat (CHAT WAS SO GREAT), kayen posed the question: "why can't the Armchair (mailing list) just migrate to livejournal?"
Surprisingly, in my opinion, most of the chat members were wholeheartedly in favor of this. Then again, a lot of the chatters were people who only knew of armchair through livejournal, and had little awareness of Armchair, the mailing list. Which is fair after two years of being mostly inactive.
But it begs the question (and is partly why we are polling people on the list to begin with) - are Armchair members mostly on livejournal already? If you're like me you just want everything to be on livejournal: fics, communities, basically as much of fandom as you can get. Except the Armchair is unique. It's strange to say it but it's one of the few remaining slash-centric fandom mailing lists, and one of the only H/D mailing lists. And the primary reason we never made an LJ community for the Armchair before recently was because I didn't want to infringe on what the mailing list already offered.
So, here's the question:
- Do you guys - meaning, a) members of the Armchair, and b) H/D shippers who (sorry, Jen!) are all in favor of yet another H/D community - want to see the Armchair migrate to a place that you feel more comfortable with - aka here?
- If you'd rather see the Armchair continue to occupy its current place as a sort of spastic but lovable fandom mailing list, what are your suggestions for using the lj community (armchair_slash) to supplement the mailing list? We are open to anything at this point.
I'm not making this a poll - yet - because I figure we've had enough of those in the last 2 days! But I'm very open to any and all thoughts on this topic. Please feel free to share.
