No one has shown interest in taking over the reigns of the community. I have removed anything in the user info and the actual layout of the community that I have designed (with the exception of the headers in the user info).

I can probably pick someone randomly, but that's not fair, so please, if you want to run the place, let me know. I will delete it if no one volunteers, because it's the only way I can leave the comm if no one takes over.

I know it sounds pretty stupid, but that's how it is.

I am looking to hand over the reigns of the community. I'd love it if someone wanted to take over and get discussion going again, bring the place back to life.

A lot of people seem to be moving away from LiveJournal, and I find myself one of them. I'm just not here much, and I'm fresh out of ideas on how to keep the community going. If no one shows an interest in taking over, I will probably delete the community entirely.

If you're interested in taking over, drop me a comment. Let me know if you have any plans on bringing the comm back to life. I'll pick the best option for the comm to take over. ALL COMMENTS ARE SCREENED.

The bonus of being the comm admin, is I can make these completely off topic posts in hopes of reaching more people.

I've been a member of an online forum for football fans for over a year, and like many places on the internet (LJ included), we're suffering from a lack of participation. Our image host recently died, and our admins are wondering if they should even bother putting up the nice banners and backgrounds again, or just close the forum altogether.

So if you like football and want a nice place to chat, 'watch' matches together, look at pics of all the guys, etc., please stop by TCC and join up. But please, please participate.

The Center Circle

And don't feel put out if your team doesn't have it's own board, there are a few generalized boards and areas where you can start a thread for your team.

So... this series is fantastic, and I'm very sad that there will be no more books (unless I missed something.)  I also couldn't help noticing how great this series could be turned into a forum-based RPG.  It could be set sometime post-FLF (and could be far enough in the future that we don't have to use canon characters, but their descendents.)

Does anyone know if Jim would be okay with this?  If so, is anyone interested in helping to make this happen?

Someone asked for some family trees for the Aleran Noble Houses, and I thought it sounded like fun. The trees I came up with are probably incomplete (I tried to include House colours and mascots, but I can't find some of them) and I wouldn't be surprised if they have some errors in them, but here it is in any case (banners and borders snitched from the fantastic in-text map):
By the way, is there a protocol/rule for when to refer to someone as, for example, 'Kalarus Brencis' as opposed to 'Brencis Kalare'?

Oh - (Minor) SPOILERS for First Lord's Fury, if you haven't read it...

Don't know why I thought I should wait to make this post. *headdesk*

To make them easy to go through, lets steal the format from IMDBs memorable quotes pages.

[page #]


Quote the entire section of text (much more typing, but at times makes more sense).

Page number would be nice, but I know sometimes the books are not readily at hand to reference.
