The Friendly Mod Post

With the quickly looming arrival of HBP, Stella and I have made a few decisions regarding the community.

Obviously, there are many people who have gotten their hands on spoilers. To keep everything under control, please post under an lj cut. None of us have read the book yet and some prefer to remain ignorant until the fateful day, please honor this. Most of you have been doing already, so thank you for that, but if this isn't followed... We will start deleting posts.

Secondly, at around 3pm Pacific time/6pm Eastern time on Friday, we'll be shutting the community down for one week. We'll open again on Monday, July 28, so that people have time to read the book before setting things on fire and starting riots.

Your Mods,

fated_addiction and imaginaryxlight

Thank you.



Let's not have any burst aortas around here until we actually read the book.
Welcome.

I stumbled on some by accident and as a result, am finding myself in the angsty pit of d00m.
Ah, so the d00m which has inspired the latest angst-fic kick is due to some spoilers? Did you get some that were actually more believable than what we've been seeing so far, then?

Are you trying to write such angst to make the outcome of HBP, whatever it turns out to be, seem like it's not all that bad after all?

Don't give in to the d00m! There is h0p3!

Spoliers are evil. *sighs* I don't even want to think about them.

I guess that's what we're trying to do. This is cheaper than therapy.

Don't give in to the d00m! There is h0p3!

*giggles* You're talking to the eternal cynic, here.
Yeah.. really though. We've waited for so long.. a couple of more days wouldn't hurt more than spoilers would.
if H/G or R/Hr happens i say we have a nice organized litte riot somewhere...a nice big city like here in L.A. wouldn't hurt...lots of media coverage...we could even make sacrifices and burn some effigies...good time for the whole Harmony family :)
*laughs* And bring smores. Everybody loves smores.
oh oh! i'll bring the...er...sticks!
Yes. I think I will enjoy that riot.
*giggles* RIOT!! Lol.. although I don't think we'll have to riot since H/Hr is sure to happen. But that's just temporary self-comfort. ^^*
Ahhh! Good idea you guys. or else my friend's page would be floodedd by tempting spoilers. (I'm a rather slow reader so I probably won't be done with the book for several days unlike some who could read it in a matter of hours ;D ).
Ha, hours? It took me a whole *day* just to re-read the first one! And I read fairly fast. XD Sad, really.

I only just finished OOTP (for the first time) yesterday. Haha, I'm lazy. x3

It'll take me about a week or so...just sitting down doing nothing but eating/reading HBP. Fun fun. =D
Thank you Mods for letting us know about the shutdown. I, personally, was wondering what was going to be done about it.

Also, thank for the spoiler reminder, we all do get a bit crazy at times. ;)
I'm like, addicted to this community. How shall I survive without it for a week?

Us people who don't care about spoilers should unite somewhere will this community is closed. ;p and rant. and cheer about h/hr happening. D: right, right?
Thank you so much!
I hate being spoiled....teased is not so bad, but spoiled is horrible. And there's nothing worse than having to stay out of friendly communities for fear of that.
I think this is a fab idea, and it will give us all time to digest things so we don't post brainless squeeage, or whatnot, and can get to the intelligent discussion! :D

*does the excited dance*
This week is DRAGGING!
Welcome.

And yes, the week is dragging. *sighs* It's not Saturday yet..
No problem. ^^ I agree that being teased is better than being spoiled. Heck, this entire week is a tease! *pulls at her hair in frustration*

what do you mean?
My guess, and it is a cynical one (no one's got the market cornered on that), was that this was someone saying this community will never re-open because we will be gnashing our teeth and pulling out our hair about the sheer hopelessness of H/Hr ever happening.

I'm kind of predisposed to believe that an anonymous post comes from a troll. I'm bitter like that.
i had a feeling it was that...like some random heron or chocolater *vomits* but i kinda wanted to leur them in but apparenlty they are too frightened...ho hum cats bum
yay for anonymous trolls.
life would be too boring without all y'all.
ha! he/she deleted their post...that makes me feel pretty good...
