I hope that moogle got your attention!

Remember I put forward that idea about a Final Fantasy Exchange a little over a week ago?

Well, idea has has become WARM, FUZZY, FANDOM-LOVIN' FACT. The exchange is over at [livejournal.com profile] ff_exchange and it's now OPEN FOR SIGNUPS.

So, uh! GO AND SIGN UP! Fans of any Final Fantasy title are welcome. And it's multimedia, so fics, art, scultpture -- WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU DO, we want it! Signups for the first round close in two weeks, on February 28th!

[livejournal.com profile] ff_exchange

So, I have an idea for a project in Final Fantasy fandom, and I'd like to ask people more familiar with that fandom about it before I go charging off into the sunset on my white horse in another doomed fandom crusade. The idea is of a year-round exchange every two or three months where people submit requests, are matched up with someone else's requests, make fanworks, and then post them all together with everyone else in a great big outpouring of fandom warmfuzzies. If this sounds like something that could perk your interest, that you'd like to help with, or that makes you want to shake your finger at me and tell me to get a life cause it will never work -- if you have any opinion at all -- then step right in behind that lj-cut an read on.

Final Fantasy Fandom Exchange )

So, that's how it would work. Please do give feedback on anything, from the specifics of the forms to general approval/disapproval of the idea =D
So! I just finished my first rec post since various offline life-related things laid me low.

The theme for this post and the next couple is fandoms you know, fanworks you don't ([livejournal.com profile] lambspam, you should recognize the phrase =P). I tried to find works that seemed to have gotten less love than their quality and fandom merited, and do my part to pimp them out.

So, uh! There are 47 recs in this post. To see them, head on over to [livejournal.com profile] picks_n_paeans!

So, help me out here, flist.

One Piece fans please help.

If you're on my flist and you like One Piece you probably know that I run [livejournal.com profile] grand_line_vine and probably also that one of the sections there is Editor's Choice, where I and the other editors rec stuff.

Well both of the other editors who used to work with me have asked to leave, for perfectly legitimate reasons pertaining to their offline lives. That's fine, and I'm grateful they could help me for the time they did. As far as I understand it, both indicated that they would probably return once their lives quieted down. I think. One of them pretty sure, the other I'm not sure.

Regardless, this puts me in an awkward situation. I am now the only editor doing recs, and that feels unfair. I do not want that section to become the [livejournal.com profile] justira variety hour. The section is there to put forward a mix quality work, not to be my soapbox. I already have one all my own over at [livejournal.com profile] picks_n_paeans. If I want to rec One Piece stuff (and I do) then I have a place to do it.

So my question is: Should I keep the Editor's Choice section?

Things to consider:
1) Not enough people are submitting fandom recs. If that section were producing any steady stream (even a trickle) of recs, then I would have no qualms about closing the Editor's Choice section, at least until there is someone else other than me who can also rec. The three sections (New, Editor's Choice, Fandom Recs) are supposed to balance each other. More to the point, the Editor's Choice is there to provide recs until Fandom Recs becomes a steady source of recs, since the New section is 100% inclusive and has no quality control whatsoever.

2) Do people actually use this section? Do they like the recs therein? Do they use one section (art vs. fic) more than the other?

3) Should I close the section just until other people come who will rec with me? Should I close it all together? Should I keep going on my own? Speaking of which, if you want to rec with me, pretty please apply.

4) Seriously, I don't want that section to be my soapbox. If people are fine with it being just me in there I can keep doing it, but if the idea bothers anyone else as much as it does me, I'd rather go. The Vine isn't there for me, it's there for readers. Hell, I mean, I'm an elitist bitch when it comes to fanworks -- it would be horrible if the Vine was run according to my tastes. And I don't even want to start that, not even one section, which I was nervous about from the start, even when there were three different people doing it.

Your input, please. Please. I'm trying to serve people as best as I can. Please feel free to respond here or on today's issue of the Vine, where I have included an announcement summarizing the siuation.
