White Collar Fanvid: Call Me

Title: Call Me
Song: "Call Me" by Isolier Band
Rating: PG
Summary: The White Collar team keeps on finding new ways to call each other.  inspired by wc_rewatch

[Notes]Notes: This song was a candidate for the 1983 Eurovision contest.  Like most Eurovision songs, it tries to have universal appeal (ie, sound like English), except that in this case, the whole song is about trying to write a song with an English 'ring' to it.  My kind of humor.

WC Reverse Big Bang and NaNoDownUnder

My two challenges for June: White Collar Reverse Big Bang and NaNoDownUnder

Reverse Big Bang - becuase I can finally vid!

NaNoDownUnder - because even though I'm not down under, for me summer is a much better time for writing than fall, and there's no way I'm going to write a novel in a month.

Network update

So, I set up a little network.  Whoever wants to, can sign up and play, there's no need to give actual information.

Currently it doesn't do much - it's a "mostly LJ" clone which allows you to set up a personal blog and subscribe to other people's blogs, as well as comment, like and rec a post.  It's pretty much bare-bones as far as looks, because I haven't studied up on that side of things yet, and of-course it's missing a lot of functionality.

I'n not sure where I'm going from here.  Making a clone of any of today's networks doesn't require much, but is generally useless.

Writing & Networking

I've been meaning to update for a while, but like the rest of my writing - it keeps getting stuck on the draft stage.   So, here goes.

White Collar community comm

I set up a new community to help keep everybody updated on what's going on, whether on LJ or DW.

wc_theisland / [personal profile] wc-theisland

I tried to list all the active white collar community comms and events on LJ/DW. Please let me know if I missed anybody.

Everyody's welcome to post of new comms/events/challenges etc, I will cross-post as needed.

A new social network

While I'm pondering the LJ situation, and why DW is not the best solution for me, it occurred to me that I could start up my own fan-oriented network.  Not the easiest thing, but not impossible either, I hope.

The question is - if there was such a thing, would people move over?   Or more specifically for me, would you move over to a new network if there was something better, even if you just spent a lot of effort moving to DW?

What do you feel is missing in the current networks?

My main ideas (besides an easy to use interface and editor that doesn't drive you mad):

1. Besides blogs and communities, there will be worlds (ie, fandom portals), to create an ecosystem around a fandom.  A community or specific post could link to a certain world, and be visible on its feed/site

2. Share any content, with no need to double post to AO3 and other fandom sites.

3. Post to multiple blogs or communities and still retain ownership of the post and comments. 

4. Extensive search options

5. Ability to mark fanworks as such, and mark suspected plagiarism as such

6. Community/blog events - Watch (or read etc) together, either live or offline, one-time or recurring

Why I'm not moving to DW (right now)

I suppose my main problem is that DW is not a good service.  I have serious trouble posting things there and it limits my ability to follow other communities.  I really can't figure it out, because it's a service that was built for fandom.  So why is it so difficult to post my fanworks on it?

My LJ entires are all archived on my computer, my fics are all archived on AO3, and I don't really fear the Russians will care about this blog.  YouTube, on the other hand, keeps on deleting and blocking my vids.  Germany really hates me, for some reason.  As far as my fanwork is concerned, that bothers me a lot more.  There's not much the fan community can do about it, even if we would care more, which we don't.

The only reason to move right now is because the fan community is moving.  But my main fandoms are not that active anyway, and not worth the hassle of moving my entire blog over there.    Also, for various reasons, the communities I co-run are already there.

What I would really love is for somebody to use the opportunity and create a platform that will be really useful for fans.  One that will draw in all those people who moved over to Tumblr.   One that will allow fans to create a whole ecosystem around a show. One that will allow me to post anything I want, share it with whatever communities I want, and still maintain ownership of it.

If something like that already exists out there,  I'd love to move there.

Purimgifts 2017 fics

Once again, I got much more than I could have hoped for from this challenge.  My gift couldn't have been more perfect: a series of Purim Torah fics, Torah she'b'al Peh from Yavneh II prepared by  ladonnaerrante.

My entry this year was also a series of fics:
Title: Who I Was, Who I Will Be
Fandom: Tanach (Jewish Bible)
Summary: They left their people for an unknown future, far away from everything they've known, but can they really leave it all behind? Three women, three stories.
