I know the community has been a bit dead. But since Dreamwidth is seeing a bit of an uptick in activity, perhaps it's worth trying again -- who all is here? Who all wants to use this community? Weekly episode discussion posts never seemed to take off in the past, but I wholly encourage posting essays and analyses, descriptions of your fan Riders, fanfic and fanart, even "who would win?" polls.

Feel free to use these comments to help discuss whether and how we can make [community profile] kamenrider an active community.

Three orders of business today. First, a report on the kink meme's recent filling party: We had ten fills in the last week, which is a cut above usual. Thanks, everyone!

Prompting is now re-opened. Since the filling party went so well, what would everyone say to repeating it in the future? Say, every three to six months?

I'm also going to keep updating the unfilled prompts post if anyone wants to use it as inspiration.

Second: As I'm sure you're all aware, Kamen Rider Ghost is debuting next week! There hasn't been a lot of posting about it here on Dreamwidth because, well, Dreamwidth is kind of dead. C.f. last year's attempt at regular weekly Drive discussion posts -- a lack of interest coupled with mod life problems made that not work so well.

But would people be interested in regular Ghost posts? If not weekly, then how about monthly?

Third: The annual Yuletide exchange is happening soon! Right now nominations are open. If you want to participate, consider nominating something -- but nominations are super limited (unless you use a sockpuppet account to nominate more...) so choose wisely; you only get three fandoms and four characters per fandom. (That's just for nominations. When signups open, you'll be able to offer and request more than that.)

Right now the Rider nominations I'm aware of are:

Blade: Kenzaki, Tachibana, Kamijou, Aikawa
W: Shotaro, Philip, Akiko, Wakana
Fourze: Yuuki, Tomoko
Drive: Tomari, Kiriko, Banno, Chase, Krim, Dimension Cab, Dream Vegas

There's an unofficial, non-mandatory post here for Yuletide participants to report their nominations -- this is not where you nominate, just where you tell other people what you nominated, since the tagset won't be visible until sometime after nominations close next weekend. Someone's always confused about that, so.

Is anyone else participating? I did last year and it was a lot of fun :D

That's about it for the mod news! Thanks for reading.

It's been ages since either of us mods did a Drive episode reaction post, and for that, we're sorry. Life has gotten in the way. :(

But also: [community profile] tokubigbang is soliciting opinions from potential participants. A Big Bang is a type of fic/art exchange where a writer produces a story of at least 10,000 words and an artist provides accompanying art (in this case, drawn art, graphic manipulations, and fanmixes are all included). If that might be up your alley, go take a look!

Since the proposed community rules went up about a week ago and don't seem to have been controversial at all, we've gone ahead and finalized them. The rules in this post are now officially the law of the land.

They're nothing too serious! Just a few guidelines to make sure everyone has a good time here.

Calling all layout editors! Coding isn't really our strong suit, so we're looking to our members for a shiny new layout!

What looking for:
Readability: Avoid small text, grey on white, white on black.
Usability: Avoid tiny cursors, tiny links, and buttons whose function isn't obvious.
Functionality: We'd like hotlinks to the kink meme, friending meme, a place we can put the most current episode discussion post, the posting rules, and the kamen rider wikia. Upload your images somewhere hotlink-friendly like imgur.
Look: I'm thinking either homage to all the Riders, Heisei and Showa, or Drive-centric since that's the current show.

Generally we prefer simple and functional to something too flashy. And we will of course give you full credit for everything.

PM one of us (myself or [personal profile] zaluzianskya) if you've got something put together!

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to leave them here! We're looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

If you have any questions, complaints, or problems to report, please comment here! Comments will be screened in case anyone needs to report anything privately. If you comment anonymously we'll have to unscreen it to be able to respond.

The mods are tracking this post and are on-call to answer your queries!

First: [personal profile] girlnamedlance volunteered as a second mod, so say hi to her! If anyone else wants to volunteer for modship, go ahead and let us know. It's true that Lance is a good friend of mine, but that's absolutely not a requirement.

Second! The two of us and another member, [personal profile] steamlace, decided that implementing some informal rules and a spoiler policy might be a good idea. This is subject to change with member input, so if there's anything you disagree with or think should be modified, comment here!

Edit: These rules have now been more or less finalized. They are still subject to change with member input since we don't want to be tyrants.

Rules under the cut! )

If there are any problems, get in touch with the mods via the mod contact post. Happy riding!

So, I wound up an administrator of this community somehow. I'm not that great of adminning outside of organization stuff (so I just went back and tagged a bunch of old posts, yay!), so does anybody else want to be an admin too?

Also, would anyone be up for weekly Drive discussion posts as a way of keeping the community active?
