Why this piece is awesome: these are the illustrations for a Big Bang story, with tattooed boys and angst and conflict, and kissing!  Lovely work, and the tatts are gorgeous.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have two volunteer reccers who signed up for July with these fandoms:

* Harry Potter ([personal profile] thady)
* Tolkien ([personal profile] turlough)

So while we already have some recs to look forward to in July, it would of course be awesome if we had more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccers have volunteered for August, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for July, August or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of June. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "Injury", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

June Bloom Theme 3: Fanworks

June Bloom is in full swing and we continue to be amazed at all the new pages that have been created this month! Thank you to you all!

New character pages that have been created in June include Soolin, Olag Gan, Elrond, Galadriel, Frisk, Xanatos, Matt the Radar Technician, and an impressive number of Final Fantasy characters! New relationship pages include Luke/Leia, Cougar/Jensen, and Rogue/Peter Petrelli. There have also been a variety of other wonderful new Fanlore pages!

This week's theme is fanworks!

Did you start a character or relationship article last week? This week, why not create a page for your favorite character study, or for a fan who impressively cosplays that character, or for a popular fancomic starring the character. Or start an article on your OTP's classic fics, or for a fanworks fest for the ship, or a doujinshi or fancraft featuring the pair. The possibilities are endless!

For help getting started, see Fanlore's Help article for fanwork pages. There are also Help pages for specific types of fanworks: Fanart, Podfic, Zines, and Vids. But remember—you don't need to write a in-depth article or fill out each of the suggestion sections in order to get a page started. Fanlore is a wiki, and growing and nurturing pages into full articles is a collaborative effort!

We would love to hear about pages you create or your future June Bloom plans in the comments below. Happy editing!

Code push imminent!

Reminder that I'm going to start working on tonight's code push in the next 30-45 minutes or so. I know you just CAN'T WAIT to use the larger icon filesize for your animated gif talents, so I'm going to start a bit earlier than originally planned, closer to 5:30pm PDT. I'll update this post when we're done!

Update: All done! Comment here if you notice any issues that need our attention.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Good Bones by Maggie Smith

[personal profile] taiga13 posting in [community profile] poetry
Life is short, though I keep this from my children.
Life is short, and I’ve shortened mine
in a thousand delicious, ill-advised ways,
a thousand deliciously ill-advised ways
I’ll keep from my children. The world is at least
fifty percent terrible, and that’s a conservative
estimate, though I keep this from my children.
For every bird there is a stone thrown at a bird.
For every loved child, a child broken, bagged,
sunk in a lake. Life is short and the world
is at least half terrible, and for every kind
stranger, there is one who would break you,
though I keep this from my children. I am trying
to sell them the world. Any decent realtor,
walking you through a real shithole, chirps on
about good bones: This place could be beautiful,
right? You could make this place beautiful.

Code push tomorrow!

We are planning to do a code push around 32[*] hours from now, at approximately 6pm Pacific time on Saturday.

Here's a partial list of changes that will go live with this push, apart from the usual minor tweaks and bugfixes:

  • Icon size limit raised from 40kb to 60kb.

  • Fixed the "hook: enddata returned false" error when uploading multiple icons.

  • Posting DW links on Facebook will now use the "Swirly D" logo for the link image.

  • Added seven new color variants on the popular "Teeny Tinies" mood theme.

  • The user profile page now lists "Other Services" in responsive columns.

  • The user icons page no longer uses "(Default)" in the alt text for every icon.

  • Improved non-ASCII character support in plain text email notifications.


We'll update again to let you know when the code push is in progress!

[*] I had a computer check my math this time, because it was almost wrong again. YAY COMPUTERS.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in June Bloom thus far! We are blown away by the number and quality of the articles that have already been created this month.

New fandom pages that have been created in June include Sex and the City, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, The Nice Guys, Here Come the Brides, and several Key animes. There have also been a variety of other wonderful new Fanlore pages. Keep up the good work! And, if you can, please help to nurture and expand these new pages!

This week's theme is characters & relationships!

Did you start a fandom article last week? If so, does it contain any red links to not-yet-existent character or ship pages? Let's get those pages started too! Or, move on to a new fandom and start sowing some seeds there!

Some characters that do not yet have Fanlore pages but have been mentioned elsewhere on the wiki include: Elrond, Boba Fett, Gabrielle (Xena), Jessica Jones, Tom Paris, and Uzumaki Naruto. Relationships without Fanlore pages include Steve/Danny (Hawaii Five-O), Sora/Yamato (Digimon), Willow/Tara (Buffy), and Han/Leia (Star Wars). Can you help get any of them started? For more ideas, see Fanlore's Wish List.

If you are new to Fanlore or need suggestions for what to add to a fandom article, check out Fanlore's Help pages on character articles and relationship articles. There is also a sample template for character pages and for pairing pages that may help you get started. But remember—you don't need to write a in-depth article or fill out each of the suggestion sections in order to get a page started. Fanlore is a wiki, and growing and nurturing pages into full articles is a collaborative effort!
