I think we can have a proper annual wrap-up post some time over the weekend... and start getting ready for 2017! \o/

However, I don't seem to have a copy of the old banner I used for advertising the community and it doesn't seem to be online anymore either (I peeked back thru some community promo comms just in case). Would anyone be willing to make a medium?-sized banner for the community? About 500x300 pixels should be fine. Bunny-theme encouraged but not required.

I started up a 'mirror' community over on Imzy, if anyone is over there and wants to hang out. I'm going for a slightly-less-structured version of [community profile] onedeadplotbunny over there with a broader project reach, but who knows what will happen?

(if you don't have an imzy account yet, the site is in a closed-beta and will require an invite. there should be a request button on the community and I'll approve/send asap)

Just a reminder - this is your community, too. Feel free to use it to ask for advice, vent, commiserate, celebrate, etc.

Awesome! We did it! One Dead Plotbunny 2015 is over~ Feel free to check-in with your weekly stuff or everything from the year, if you'd like!

2016 will be in the very capable hands of [personal profile] aurordark, [personal profile] misslucyjane, [personal profile] jordannamorgan, and [personal profile] sashataakheru, though I'll still be around for last-ditch support (post is a day late because I, uh, slept through yesterday)...

I don't have details about advertising/banners - I'm sure those will follow shortly.

Thank you, everyone. If we're still going in 2018, my diploma and I will be ready to resume active duty. Until then, I'll be sniping plotbunnies when I can and tinkering with robots and motors otherwise (and sleeping)!

Just a reminder - this is your community, too. Feel free to use it to ask for advice, vent, commiserate, celebrate, etc.

This is a weekly check-in! You do not have to check in, of course, but if you would like to comment on the last week, feel free!

If you have a deadline coming up, you can do it! If you need a deadline, feel free to ask!

If you're a NaNo-ing person, good luck!

(If anyone would like a Brainstorming Post, feel free to ask!)

And now the important mod note!

(I left this is the comments a couple weeks ago. I have one maybe-helper and just heard back from someone else who isn't able to help out.)

So, as much as I've enjoyed running [community profile] onedeadplotbunny for the last nearly-three years, I'm getting to a point where my schedule is getting really erratic between school, work, and family obligations. And it's going to get worse before it gets better.

If I can find someone who'd like to take over weekly posts and whatnot and there's interest in ODPB for next year, it'll keep going. If not, the community will end at the end of our 'year', January 31st, 2016.

If you're interested in helping out (even a couple people, alternating or whatever), please shoot me a PM. My back-up mod has recently stepped down for personal reasons, so I'll welcome any support. The community takes me about a half-hour a week, more in February when everyone is just joining.

Hi! I hope everyone has had an insightful and enjoyable week of rounding up their personal herds of plotbunnies. If you are still herding, don't worry - our first check-in and second activity is still more than a weekend away!

Since there seems to have been some confusion and misunderstanding in regards to the community's 'scheduled' posts, here is the basic schedule for this month:

~February 1st: Community Intro Post, First Activity
(a Brainstorming Post)
~February 9th: Second Activity, First Check-In
~February 18th: Second Check-In
(maybe another Brainstorming Post)
~February 25th: Third Check-In, possibly something else but that is way too far away for me to think about.

Each check-in post has mutliple sections - instructions to check in if so desired, a link to the current Brainstorming Post, and encouragement to meet deadlines and an offer to give deadlines. If you need a deadline or reminder for a deadline, please comment to the post. I'll ask if you'd like a public deadline and if so, I'll add it to the check-in template. If you'd rather a private deadline, PM me and I'll put a sticky up on my wall and remind you a couple of times as it approaches. There are no penalties for not meeting deadlines or anything - some people just work better with dates attached and that's cool.

Check-Ins are scheduled for ~Wednesdays. This means somewhere between Tuesday evening and Thursday afternoon, probably Wednesday morning (mod-standard-time) once I'm caffeinated. Because getting from a project starting on a Sunday to weekly check-ins on Wednesdays involves some tinkering, the first couple weeks run funny. I won't tell if you don't. Also, if it's gotten to be Friday and there's no post, send me a PM. I probably just lost track of days - it happens about twice a year. ^^;

Every part of this community is optional. Do what you find comfortable; ignore what doesn't work for you. There are no sign-in lists, no spread-sheets, no penalties and no nagging. Your goals, projects, and everything else are solely yours unless you've requested and agreed upon things like writing buddies, deadlines, etc.

Please, if you are unsure on anything or would just like clarification, ask me in any post tagged !admin: questions or PM me.

A Brainstorming Post will go up either tonight or tomorrow and hey, I've not seen any personal intro posts, so maybe I'll get mine up. ^_^; Have a fantabulous weekend.

Hello, erstwhile slayers of plotbunnies! Much like last week, this is a week where it can be hard to focus on anything we may be intending to focus on.

So, like last week, this isn't really a check-in, but of course you may. It is, however, permission to relax and enjoy yourself for a bit. Your plotbunny herd is not going anywhere.

Do we want [community profile] onedeadplotbunny 2015? I am good if you're all still interested~

Hey, [community profile] onedeadplotbunny, I have something I'd like to ask you. More than once, I've thought about and also had discussions about brainstorming and how difficult it can be when personal friends aren't necessarily into what we're working on and aren't necessarily the best sounding boards for ideas, etc.

I'm proposing community brainstorming posts where anyone could drop in and ask for a little help getting ideas together/getting past stuck spots/trying to figure out what to do with that one last bingo square/etc.

There would be no requirements for participation/using any of the ideas brainstormed/etc.

This post is open to any questions/thoughts/commentary.
