        Will there be free for all days again in round 25 itself?

        EDIT: No worries, I've read the LJ post and see that there are.

          Heads up, we're having a Seasonal Spuffy Free-for-All day today! All contributions welcome (within the pretty lenient rules)!

            Happy autumn equinox, all! Over on Seasonal Spuffy, we've already got two free-for-all entries:

            a S12 issue 4 comics art edit by Double Dutchess, "a visual comment on the last issue of the comics season 12, reflecting where Spuffy is at right now". It's worksafe, but contains SPOILERS for season 12! It's also cute and really funny.

            a moodboard / aesthetic for “Tales From a New Body” [the wonderful Spuffy fic by OffYourBird], made by badwolfjedi! Worksafe, as well. Rarely has a rec post been so gorgeous to look at. ^^

            I assume it would be spamming to link every post here as they happen? So I think I'll link all the rest of them tomorrow.

            - - - Updated - - -

            Thank you, Double Dutchess. The rules in question are over here: seasonal-spuffy.livejournal.com/profile

              I wish I was better at organising my time that I could have contributed. Going to go and have a nosey at the entries.

                Aw, Stoney, better luck with the fall round? This was just a quick little event, blink and it's gone -- but I see you did contribute comments! That's valuable, too.

                So in addition to the two posts I linked yesterday, people posted some more ARTWORK. I'd say it all ranges from pretty good to excellent, skewed heavily towards the excellent. <3 All the images are worksafe.

                  I hope you'll manage to contribute something to the Fall round! There are multiple free-for-all days then, so it should be a bit easier to catch one. (Says the person who still has no idea if she'll manage to finish anything for her signed-up date, and who will most likely be forced to quickly improvise something the night before )

                    And here's a summary of our future plans, in case something slipped your mind in the excitement of the free-for-all. (Also, some of this hasn't been said in this thread before.)
                    • Starting next Sunday, there will be a series of tutorial posts about How to LiveJournal. Those posts will only happen on our tumblr blog and Facebook page. Would it be useful to link every post here, or only all of them at the end, or not needed at all? Please let me know if someone is interested but reading on tumblr/Facebook is a problem.
                    • The banner challenge for the fall round will open officially on October 16. Artists are free to start work whenever they like, though, as teragramm assures us that banner challenge rules rarely change between rounds. Questions about the banner challenge are best asked over here (LiveJournal account not necessary to ask).
                    • The Fall 2018 round is a little under 2 months away now -- it will run November 16 to December 2 on LiveJournal, as I think you know. All the posting days are filled (yay!), BUT one can still sign up to share a day, and anyone may post without signup on the free-for-all days: Nov 22, Nov 25, and Dec 1-2.
                    • The Winter Solstice free-for-all is on December 21. If you have any ideas about cool special things we could try for that event, now's the time to suggest them! However, as this fall equinox event showed, we still do just great when we keep things simple. <3

                      Is this going to be a step by step, idiots guide? If so, then it would be great if it were posted here because I don't have a clue and would love to learn

                        Cool, I'm glad you're interested! I plan to make 6 posts, covering navigation features, commenting and other interaction with posts, communities (what active comms there are and how one works), and posting. *cringes at own ambition* It's definitely meant to be beginner-level, and I'm capable of getting crazy detailed, so yes, step by step, but I'll try to strike some sort of balance so the posts aren't too huge.

                        By posted here, do you mean links to it, or would it be significantly more useful if I made a forum thread?

                          That sounds great. Thank you, I'd definitely be interested. I wouldn't expect you to post here, the links would be grat though

                              Stretching it to 1 post a week, and taking into account I don't work full time, I hope it won't come to that...

                                  Hee!!! You included a link to THE POLL

                                  But seriously, that must have been a lot of work. And it will be very helpful, I'm sure.

                                      Our banner challenge is open already!

                                      Here's teragramm's announcement post: https://seasonal-spuffy.livejournal.com/630610.html
                                      And here's everything she said...


                                      For our Fall 2018 round of seasonal_spuffy, we are again doing our traditional banner competition.

                                      The theme this round is Road Trip - interpret that as you will, or not. It's up to you.

                                      Here are the rules for the challenge:

                                      - The deadline is November 9th, midnight(EST).

                                      - You can submit up to three banners.

                                      - Banners must be no larger than 800x400 pixels and no smaller than 750x300 pixels (anywhere in between is fine too.)

                                      - Banners must be new and anonymous, so please do not post your banners elsewhere until the results have been posted.

                                      - Submit entries as a comment to this post or on DW). All comments will be screened.

                                      - If you don't have a LiveJournal or Dreamwidth account, you can email the banner to sspuffy@gmail.com. Make sure to put Banner in the subject line.

                                      - After the winner is announced, the winner will be asked to "sign" their banner. Please remember to leave room on your banner for your tag/signature.

                                      - When submitting a banner, give us both the image and url. (See example below)



                                      https://ic.pics.livejournal.com/tera...127609_300.png

                                      The poll with all the pretties will go up the day after the deadline.

                                      Past banners can be seen here.

                                      Any questions, just ask!

                                      Have fun and show us your fabulous work!!

                                        I split the communities topic in two parts, so this week's post is just a list of Buffyverse communities currently active on LiveJournal, with some commentary. Next week, I'll talk about How To do things with communities.
