I'm sorry I haven't been around much for the past few weeks, but RL does tend to interfere with fandom. Anyway, way back when we had the Friending Meme
I also asked for what people would also like to see in this comm more and the majority answer was "more discussion". I've talked it over with my co-mods and they agree that this is a great idea.
As such I'll be instituting Round Table Mondays (eh, I'm open to name suggestions as well) which will consist of someone making a discussion post for a topic of their choice. In order to help the discussion along, I'm looking for volunteers to write a bit of meta (not long - say 100 words or so? - not set in stone) on whatever topic they would like discuss.It's easier to start of a discussion if there's already some information and place from which to start. So if you'd like to be a topic starter just let me know in a comment here with a date (and maybe a topic). I'm taking sign-ups for every Monday for the foreseeable future. The topics have to be in some way related to Criminal Minds, but tehy don't necessarily have to involve the characters/events in the show - if you'd like to talk about real serial killers, or the real BAU or death and morality and assisted dying - by all means don't let me stop you. Of course if you have any suggestions for the improvement of this format, I'm willing to listen to those as well.
I'm also instituting Friday Rec Day, which will consisted of a post made by me every Friday in which people can rec any piece of fanart (fics, drawings, vids, etc.) they've stumbled upon this week (or well at any time) and think is awesome. People will also be able to make requests for certain kind of rec if they wish to do so.
November is also NaNoWriMo, so here's a little cheering for those of you who're taking part in it - I hope it's going well!
As usual I'm interesting in what everyone has to say about all this and suggestions are more than welcome. ( Sign up list for Round Table Monday... )
