Not too much to report in the state of the Fig this month, because most of my fannish time has been involved with behind-the-scenes at stargateficrec
left things in smooth running condition, but there are a few things that I wanted to tweak, so...
So now there's a new rec template and we're rehauling the tagging system. The tags are insanely chaotic -- especially from way back at the beginning of the comm's history, when everything from category to warning got tagged and multiple spellings got thrown into the mix. (That's not a sneer, by the way. It's the nature of a hugely popular comm to get confusing after a while.) I've trimmed away seventy-odd tags that were used once or twice over the years and renamed tags to be hierarchal rather than confusing (I hope). That job still isn't finished, but I'm getting there! I'm now looking for some way to display the tags page as multi-level rather than as-is, but it'll have to be a style that allows for a free or plus account. Does anyone have any ideas?
I did manage to get five recs in, though. As always, they were recced at stargateficrec
and archived at figs_sg1_recs
. The Master List of Fic Recs
is up-to-date.( five recs under the cut )
Sadly, I haven't had time to work on sg1genrecs
with the new stargateficrec
responsibility. Let's hope some other interested reccers remember to post a link or two!
And finally, in the fic department, I managed the sixth installment
of On the Outside, Looking In
. It is currently only on DW because I can't load LJ. I can't even tell if it's my filter causing trouble or an actual LJ outage, sigh.
(I was going to write all ten seasons this year. It was going to be my incentive to get at least 22,000 words of fic written. Silly Fig.)
~insert usual encouragement to sign up to rec
For the record, there are five (actually, four) volunteers to rec SGA pairings and one volunteer to rec Tok'ra gen (YAY). I'd love to see more SG-1 volunteers, no matter what flavor - although I will be very
happy to see more gen fic recced, natch!
