OK, because the chaos is starting already and I don't like chaos, here I am putting myself forward, bullhorn in hand. (Anyone don't like me talking like I'm charge, please feel free to take over!!)

Unless Haken shows up and directs us different, let's officially declare the next few Mondays as repost days for all our lost fics. Of course, more Mondays will be added as needed, but let's see how it goes.

Please help with keeping this thread bumped to the front page, to get the word out. And get those fics ready to put back where they belong!

Best of luck with that. People who could care less about being kind and not flooding the BSR are going to do what they want on whatever day they want. But I applaud you for trying :)

No, I'm sure not everyone will follow a reposting schedule. I mean, I've already reposted one of my own LOL! I think I may have helped start the mini-avalanche... oops.

But I figure this way the writers with lots of lost fics (and some do have LOTS!) can have a chance to post all they want, guiltfree, flame-free.

I hope it works!

Oh please, you re-posted one story :P Not 5 or 6 or 7 all at once!

You didn't start an avalanche but I do applaud you for trying to strategically coordinate one! LOL!

Aww, I thought it had all been recovered because mine is all back. :( Sorry to hear not everyone has been so lucky!

While I normally HATE-HATE-HATE flooding, I don't blame anyone for reposting, mostly because... the more fic in the archives, the better. :)

I'm delighted that someone's suggested a specific set of dates for reposting! I'll adjust my schedule accordingly, and thank you, Mal4prez, for coming forward! A specific plan, I can work with! Here's to hoping we're all able to comply on those Mondays! :D

This sounds great! I'll refrain from reposting anymore...it's been hard to see what's new and what's not, so any sense of order will be welcome.

Yeah, I'll do all my re-posting on those days. I haven't written alot, but everything I have written is gone, so I'll be happy to put it back on the next two Mondays! Thanks for the suggestion!

Sorry for the double post, which will now look like a single post, and a weird apology. Geez, me and technology have got to get together sometime! :D

I think this is a great idea. Of course not all the BSR junkies check in on the threads regularly. Seems like we should see if Hayken would switch this one to the news area on the homepage.

One good side to this whole fiasco, I have caught some really good fics that I seem to have missed the first time around.

That all being said - here's the bump

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?


I think this is a great idea. And those of us with 'lots' of stuff to repost can do so without worrying about flooding or hiding new fics.

And 'bump'.

The Blue Sun Room goes dark and chaos has come again. What can ya do? Way The Flood is going now, you'd think you're in HALO. :) At this point? Best to ride it out, I think, and let folks just re-upload their stuff and get it over with. We'll pass through it soon enough.

I, too, applaud your efforts, though. And thanks for pointing out what's so damn important about bein' proper. The rampant uploaders, however, were not so enlightened. :)

Good idea Mal4Prez, I'll save any further postings to Mondays though am one of the guilty ones who posted up a lot of what was lost in the early days so a ton of sorries if that caused problems. I was just of the mind the sooner folks inputted the lost stories the better, the way then being cleared for wall to wall new stuff. Ali D :~)

I should note that this wasn't my idea. I believe AbbeyGirl brought it up in one of the FFF Central threads, I just liked the plan and ran with it. So kudos to AbbeyGirl!

And I back up Jane's blogged request - new feedback is good! My goodness though, readers are going to have their hands full on Monday LOL!

Fine with me. Meanwhile, I'm trying to find time to put a checkbox on the "add fanfic" page that overrides having the fanfic appear on the "latest items" list on the mainpage.

I don't know if I'll be able to get it done by tomorrow night since I have a couple of family things happening on Sunday that'll take up most of my day, but I'll try.

Mine are still there too although I haven't had time to log on for a while and so I don't know if they've come back or never disappeared in the first place. Just luck I guess.

Since I've recovered all but one of my lost chapters via goggle cache, I've got a whole bunch of feedback that I think it'd be a shame to lose. I mean, people put effort into writing these, and they're often as interesting as the fic. To me they are! So I'm tacking the comments on to the end of my chapters... or maybe I should put them in as one big comment? I don't know. (Opinions?)

I figured I'd throw this idea out there. Again it's not original LOL! I guess I'm a big fic-posting idea whore. All credit to Leiasky this time.

Well, really I just wanted to BUMP this thread!

I just posted mine at the end of the fic. If it looks better (and I can't test because it can't be deleted if it doesn't look good!) posted as a comment, maybe I'll change it. But for now, I've got the feedback re-posted at the end of the fic itself.

Just bumping this up for those who don't read the news...

I'm not sure how much we need another repost day, cause it seemed a whole lot got done last week. But things are still trickling through (in a tasteful, polite way - yay for FF ficwriters! We're so good. ) so let's do repost Monday again. If anyone is sick of being polite and wants to flood, your time is tomorrow!
