I continue to be way more active on twitter than here, though post-election I'm thinking Dreamwidth may be a better choice of venue if only more fans would use it. Since finishing bandom big bang I signed up for ITPE and went to Podfication in Minneapolis, where I hung out with fellow podficcers and had a great time. However, after talking to MPH about Fanlore, I came home inspired to write ten million new articles so I sort of forgot to write up a con report for Podfication. Before Podfication was also when I was binge-watching SPN because it was less scary than the real world, but I forgot about SPN too. I'm planning to get back to watching at some point, but the odds of me ever participating in the fandom are slim.

MCRchaeology, wherein I read through old Bandom communities on livejournal and write Fanlore articles about them, has been going well, if slowly. So far I've made pages for chemicalromance, geeheartmikey, mcr_het_fics, mychemicalslash, and yeahchemical. Last week's? Russian server scare made me even more anxious to READ ALL THE COMMS before somebody deleted them out of fear that Russia would actually care about your slash fic. There was already a 50/50 chance that picspams or meta posted to an individual journal were gone.

For ITPE I received a fantastic crossdressing historical AU Frank/Gerard podfic (3 hours!) from opalsong, who has a really nice, clear podficcing voice I don't think I'd heard before: A Lovely Apparition, written by wordslinging. RsCreighton also made me a delightful treat: By the Numbers, written by Shoemaster, wherein Frank is Gerard's accountant. Meanwhile, I recorded A Natural Reaction to Rough-housing by Bexless for duendeverde4. I'd brag about finishing a 3-hour podfic in less than a month, except rscreighton recorded 40+ hours for ITPE???

I worry about this all the time. I really wish there was a way to save the entries on a community. :|

I have seen more activity on DW in the last few weeks. But what you said is what I keep thinking about Imzy and people's requests to make it do what DW already does.

If it is happening, I don't know where that's going on. I'm following communities for several large fandoms and there's either no or very little activity.
