I hate spam attacks! + some linkage and news about the SPN newsletter project

Today, after months of getting irritating and completely incomprehensible spam comments by anons, I finally disabled commenting for everyone and enabled commenting for registered users only! I really hate doing that, but having to delete more than 15 spam comments per day really got on my nerves. This change will only be temporary though. After 2 weeks I will try enable comments for everyone again. Hopefully all those darn spam anons will have lost interest by then.


Also for all anime fans on my f-list, I found a nice site where you can watch a lot of animes online without the trouble of downloading each episode. The site is called ani-watch. Go, check it out! :)


On a different note, it would be great if you could vote in the SPN newsletter poll, vol.2 if you haven't already. So far, 11 people took the poll! I want to have a few more votes before I analyze the results.

On the same matter, I want to announce that the asylum [info]spn_newsletter was handed over to me by [info]dea_liberty on June 19th, 2008. That will spare me the effort of creating a new asylum! :)

[project]: SPN newsletter for IJ, vol.2

A while ago, on February 19th to be exact, I created a poll to gather information on how people feel about a SPN newsletter on IJ. Due to a family bereavement at the beginning of March, I haven't had the energy to work on this project. I apologize for the hiatus!

However, now I'm very much in the mood to get this baby going.

Before we get to the results, I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time and effort to vote in the last poll! &hearts

What did we learn from the last poll?
Observe )

Tl;dr:
+ There will be a newsletter on IJ.
+ The newsletter will cover SPN content on IJ and JF.
+ We still need people who provide links, especially on JF (link hunters).
+ We also need one or two more editors.


More thoughts...
... to chew on. )

I think it's wise to create another poll to determine how people think about those subjects.

Poll: Vol.2
Please take it... )

I'd appreciate it if you could spread the word about this project! Thanks for reading and taking the poll!! &hearts &hearts &hearts

SPN Newsletter for fannish stuff on IJ?!

Yesterday I followed a link from the recent issue of [info]meta_roundup to a post by [info]morgandawn in which she raises the question whether there is "any interest in a supernatural newsletter that will cover not only LJ but also JF and IJ supernatural fic and art".

On reading this, I felt compelled to put in my two cents' worth. There already exists a community that covers fannish content here on IJ called [info]spn_newsletter, created on 2007-08-08. Currently it has 53 members and 96 watchers, and unfortunately it hasn't been updated since the day it was created. Meaning except for two introductory posts there has never been an actual newsletter to begin with. And as far as I can tell the two maintainers seemed to have abandoned IJ.

It's really sad in my opinion. I love the SPN newsletter on LJ, it comes in handy if you want to keep track of all the lovely fanart, fanfics and so on posted around there. I know SPN fandom on IJ is not as big and active as on LJ, but at least it's not dead. It's here, it's living and it needs more attention.

To be honest, I've entertained the idea of creating a newsletter community for IJ some time ago when I noticed that [info]spn_newsletter still hadn't updated and fandom around here had grown more active. I know SPN fandom here is not comparable to SPN fandom on LJ, but I think a SPN newsletter on a weekly (or maybe bi-weekly) basis would be great.

I'm also aware of how much effort it is to hunt for appropriate links, as well as editing and all the lovely stuff that comes with it for the actual newsletter. But, oh well, I'm crazy enough happy to volunteer to be an editor. But I don't want to do this all alone. I need at least 2 or 3 people who are willing to help.

So that's why I ask you to fill out the poll. I know you want to anyway. :) )

And it would be great if you could pimp this out! I'd like to know your thoughts on this matter. *is very interested*
