Hey guys!

I'm not sure how up you all are on recent events, but I think you'd've had to be living in a vacuum not to know about Strikethrough '07 and the like. I'm unlikely to move from LJ until forced to, because I love the community here. However, there is the possibility that I'm going to jump ship. If I do, most of my communities are going to shut down and be deleted. If that happens, I will be setting new ones up on InsaneJournal, probably under the same usernames, and you'll all be welcome to follow me there. They may not be exactly the same, and I won't be reposting the content submitted here. This community will not be deleted, since it's supposedly co-modded, but I probably will make an alternative over on IJ and won't be actively modding this one.

In any case, my advice is: if you've posted something on this community and you want to keep it, back it up now. I'm not going to be able to back up all my communities, and will basically just save the rules and theme lists, so while I wish I could help you all, I can't. I do recommend ljarchive if you're looking at backing up your own journals.

What sparked this? Two users (that I know of: there may be more who are less prominent) have been suspended for posting fanart of "minors in explicit sexual situations". They were suspended without warning, and therefore without a chance to defend themselves or remove the offending posts. More than that, I've looked at the art by ponderosa121 and neither of the characters look underage. Is this the start of another purge? We don't know. It's certainly something unfair, and it could be the start of a slippery slope.

This post isn't just a warning. I would love it if every single one of you took some kind of action.

"'Cause sure as I know anything, I know this: They will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground, swept clean. A year from now, ten, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people -- better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave."

Comment spam the news posts. Spam the lj_biz posts. Write open letters to LiveJournal. Open support requests. Let them know that fandom_counts.

If I disappear and you want to find me on InsaneJournal, I've already registered my three main usernames there. Until that point, I'll continue to mod these communities as I have always done.

You'll notice I didn't close Drive. Partly because nobody wrote anything for it.

If there're no responses (or at least comments suggesting prompts) by Monday 13th August, I'm going to close this community because of lack of interest. :(

Sorry I've been ignoring this community for so long -- I've had so many things to be doing. I'm back now and hoping to coax/massage/thump some life back into this community. But, for now, I'm closing the twenty-ninth challenge, Pet.

The next challenge is Pet. It should be closed the day before I finish exams, the eighteenth, but since my last exam is an anthology one, I may not be home and internet-capable that day by dint of the fact I'll be camping out with my classmates trying to figure out the more obscure points. I'll try and get it done on time, though. :)
