Hi Community Members!

I'm stepping down as co-admin, as my commitments elsewhere have increased.

If you're willing to take on the light duties of co-admining, please contact fellow administrator [personal profile] emma_moon.

Co-admining involves two general things:

1) Keeping track of tags, and adding tags when requested by members

2) Joining [community profile] hpfanworks_mods and discussing changes with [personal profile] emma_moon

3) Just being around and lending a helping hand with the community when needed! :)

If you're willing to take on the duties of co-admining, please contact [personal profile] emma_moon.

Thank you!

2) Joining [community profile] hpfanworks_mods and discussing changes with [personal profile] emma_moon

3) Just being around and lending a helping hand with the community when needed! :)

Hello!

If you've received an invite to join [community profile] hp_fanworks, it's because your account appears to meet all of these three criteria:

1) You were previously a member of hp_fanfiction/[community profile] hp_fanworks
2) You still have posting access to [community profile] hp_fanworks
3) Your account was stripped of membership by a moderator, as opposed to a voluntary leaving

All accounts were stripped of membership by a moderator when the community was renamed from hp_fanfiction to [community profile] hp_fanworks*, so invitations to re-join were sent only to former members! :)

*See these posts for more details.

EDIT: This is the last round of invites! After this round, any remaining accounts which have posting access (but not membership) will have their posting access stripped.

EDIT #2: Edited for clarity! You've got to appear to meet all three criteria to get an invite.

It's been six months since the community was re-named from hp_fanfiction to [community profile] hp_fanworks, so I thought I'd do another round of community invitations to the accounts which had been members.

For reference, former members were stripped of membership and initially re-invited in June. The reason was that in order to re-name the community to [community profile] hp_fanworks from [profile] hp_fanfiction, the community had to have zero members.

If you're curious as to further events, check out the *moderator post tag for details! :)

Hey [community profile] hp_fanworks members!

We've decided to open tagging to community members, so you can now tag your own posts!

When posting, check out the tags page, and please tag liberally. Posts should get character, media, pairing and rating tags.

When looking for pairing tags, please remember to check for variations. For example, the community has 'pairing: draco/hermione' and not 'pairing: hermione/draco'.

However, if you'd prefer to leave tagging to the mods, just use the *needs tagging tag, and a mod will come along and tag your post for you.

Let us know if you have any questions, feedback, suggestions, etc!

Invitations to join [community profile] hp_fanworks have now been sent to all former members of [profile] hp_fanfiction (excepting those who have already joined the community).

If you're puzzled as to why you were stripped of membership and then re-invited, the short version is that in order to re-name the community to [community profile] hp_fanworks from [profile] hp_fanfiction, the community had to have zero members.

If you're curious as to further events, check out the *moderator post tag for details! :)

Dreamwidth just patched in a number of new layouts, so I've taken this opportunity to change the layout of [community profile] hp_fanworks!

Let me know if the new layout is causing issues for anyone. :)

It turns out the renaming culprit was a sneaky unlisted requirement*, and I've asked Dreamwidth to add that requirement to the Community Renaming FAQ.

Over the next few weeks, invites to join [community profile] hp_fanworks will be sent out to all accounts which were members of [profile] hp_fanfiction. Of course, you're free to join the community immediately, should you wish!

Best,
Boundbooks and emma_moon

*Current FAQ: "If you are renaming a community to the username of a personal account you control, the confirmed email address on the community and the confirmed email address on the personal account must be the same."

Suggested Change: "If you are renaming a community to the username of a personal account you control, the confirmed email address on the community, and the confirmed email address on the personal account must be the same. Also, the password of the personal account and your community administrator account must match."

Hi Everyone,

We're still going ahead with the re-naming of the community.

It's not re-named yet because there's some kind of technical hiccup, and I need a response from Dreamwidth Support to diagnose the issue.*

Re-naming the community requires it to be without any members, so we're still removing all the members except for the admins. However, your posting access privileges remain intact, as does the list of subscribers to the community, so you can still post freely!

We'll let you know when the rename goes through!

Best,
Boundbooks and emma_moon

*I'm trying to rename it from [profile] hp_fanfiction to [community profile] hp_fanworks, both of which are accounts I admin/control, but DW's rename system is blocking the rename. I have no idea why. D:

edit - Success! Here's a post with the updated details.

Hi Everyone,

We're going ahead with the re-naming of the community, after seeing a post on [community profile] stylemakers about how to re-name a large community.

Re-naming the community requires it to be without any members, so we're going to remove all the members except for myself, re-name the community, and then invite all the members to join the community again.

The community will go from [profile] hp_fanfiction to [community profile] hp_fanworks.

Best,

The OWL fanfiction archive is going to be permanently shut-down at the end of April. The mods suggest that everyone collect what they wish from the site (stories, reviews, etc.) before that date.

The Announcement:
Global: Tauri.org is closing on 4-30-2012
As of 4-30-2012, tauri.org will be closing - for several reasons, not the least of which is hardware. The machine has been running 24x7 since the site first went live, and has clearly been showing its age. It will continue to be checked and rebooted daily until the end of the month. At that time, it will be powered off. Any information needed from the site (stories, reviews, etc.) must be collected before that time.
UNSC Jon 117 on Sun 4-1-2012 07:14:14 EDT in General/Announcements


A mod has also opened a thread about the announcement on their message board and there is further information in a post on their livejournal community. Another mod suggests checking out [livejournal.com profile] owl_tauri for tips and tricks on saving one's fics and reviews.

I don't have anything to do with the OWL site, but I figured that I'd help spread the news, and that the members of this community would most likely be interested in knowing about this archive closure.

Thank you to everyone who responded to my query for feedback on re-naming the community. Unfortunately, we can't rename the community. I'd missed the very last sentence of the FAQ on renaming communities:

To rename a community, it must have no members, other than yourself the administrator of the community.

I filed a ticket with Support to ask if there was any chance that community renames with members might happen in the future. Unfortunately, Support explained that Dreamwidth explicitly does not want to enable this for reasons of site-load and concerns over user-confusion.

So, I hope that over time we'll get a reputation as 'that pan-fanwork Harry Potter community'. I think that there's a strong possibility of that occuring, because we're the most active general-interest Harry Potter community on all of Dreamwidth!

Thank you to all of you lovely members who make this community work. :)

I've noticed that our name, [profile] hp_fanfiction, seems to be causing confusion. People understandably assume we're only for fanfiction, despite the fact that we take podfics, icons, fanmixes, graphics and pretty much any fanwork that's Harry Potter-related.

How does the community feel about re-naming the community?

I just added a little bit to the rules, clarifying why there's a Characters: line in our suggested posting template.

1. Please use the provided header when posting art, fiction or graphics, and modify it as needed. For all other categories, feel free to modify the provided header heavily if necessary.

Note: If you're able and interested in getting character tags, it's super-helpful if you fill out the characters line. That's what the mods use to tag the post with the appropriate characters. If there are no characters filled out, the post gets no character tags, because we can't read every fic/listen to every podfic/see every work of art. :)


I hope that explains why some posts haven't been tagged with characters! :)

After a quick discussion with [personal profile] emma_moon, where we realized that Dreamwidth Harry Potter fans don't have a dedicated graphics, fanmix, craft or icon community, we decided to expand the fan art criteria to pretty much include all possible fanworks.

We now have tags for art, craft, fanmix, icons, and fiction, and we'll add more as the need arises! :)
