This is me, pimping out a new exchange going on at [livejournal.com profile] bb_and_ww because I know out of all of my flist there's a fair number who have preference for the ignored, disliked and misunderstood characters, not to mention aliens and other beings. Please pimp this out if you think anyone else you know would like it too.

Anti-Valentines Exchange 2009
Signups open until midnight GMT on 14th January

For anyone still interested A) mckay and/or weir from SGA and B) in some festive fannish challenge I pimp this challenge out to you.
purpleyin: Cameron from Sarah Connor Chronicles looking to the side (Default)
If anyone likes the idea of fic for the misguided, disliked, ambigious, evil and alien characters then you've got just about 5 days left to submit prompts. As many as you like, no obligation to write too. The submission ends when the 5th of August has ended everywhere in the world.

Come on over to [livejournal.com profile] bb_and_ww and give those characters some lovely prompts! :D

Please pimp this out if you know any one with any love of those kind of characters - it's multifandom after all and more prompts the merrier.

I point my fellow SGA flisters, those with any fondness for the McKay/Weir pairing, to this here prompt battle.

37 prompts and a subs deadline of 19th December, just in time for a glut of fic before Christmas I hope. Do you worst/best, though really, aren't those both the same thing? lol

This is a post pimping out http://seriouschange.org.uk. It's not intended to be preachy or political, just pointing the site out along with my explanation of why I've signed up.

So there's essentially the two warring extremist sides of the argument about climate change - those in denial no matter what it costs them, because they view change for the enviroment as uncessary and damaging to business/economy/the current way of life, and those who are so gungho for change they think the answer is reverting to older ways of living that radically change all we know.

I signed up to the site because it's about making a serious change without drastic measures to how we live that some would suggest, the middle ground of wanting what's good for the environment without cutting out the technology I love and all the modern aspects of life I enjoy because it's not a focus on the environment for the sake of that but a focus on changes that benefit the economy as much as the environment by bringing us in line with how the 21st century should arguably be.

Personally I don't think the idea of living with a low carbon or even carbon neutral footprint is too far away. The obstacles to this seems to be resistance based on greed of corporations not wanting to change despite any proof it's better for them to, governments supporting them for political reasons and the erraneous perception that changes can't be done without great personal sacrifices, that it will harm consumers and hence the economy.

I'm hoping that what the website ends up doing to get the message out will achieve something in changing the minds of those who have power to make serious changes, to push for laws that support this, to force corporations to do the sensible thing. I might be naive to hope it has serious impact but I think it's always worth trying, especially when it takes so little effort to sign up and there are no obligations on my time apart from those I might choose to accept in the future.

Let me pimp out [livejournal.com profile] mwexplosion, which has been created for the McKay/Weir novel(la) writing event soon to kick off, but is also going to have smaller contests in the meantime - starting with our first icontest, for episode 1x01-02 "Rising". Go here for Challenge 1 rules and submissions post.

M/W or SGA graphics flisters, why not have a go? G'on ;)

Two items on the agenda

1. Please awesome flisters who're into Stargate, go create for the sg_rarepairings Prompt Battle. I'm sure you might even be able to recognise a few of my prompts over there, I'm a little predictable, but seriously there's tons of prompts, plenty of variety to choose from and not restricted to only fic either.

2. You can surely manage just 6 prompts (up to 5 character/pairing specific and 1 non-character-specific) for the following challenge? We need more fanart, it would be love, so do your bit and give them some good stuff to inspire! :D



[livejournal.com profile] paintedspires is an SGA fanart challenge in which a group of SGA artists respond to prompts submitted by the rest of fandom. There are over 70 artists signed up, and from March 10-16, they're asking for prompts from you! Any character, any pairing, any genre. Click the link! Help them out! Get pretty art in the bargain!

If you have love for rarely written Stargate pairings - het or slash + pairing or friendship/gen - then note this:

Today is the last day to submit prompts for the [livejournal.com profile] sg_rarepairings prompt battle - see here

OKay, primeval flisters- I'm a pimping out the Time for Aventure Primeval forums to ya. They are just getting started, I joined up and have been posting a little. Looks to be fun but needs more people - would be great to have more in-depth ongiong discussions on the show over there. :D

Also, filled out an interesting survey today that I saw over on [livejournal.com profile] fanthropology and thought I'd help out by promoting that.

A master's student at Georgetown is working on fan fiction for her thesis. There's a survey and she needs as many people from as many fandoms as possible to complete it so that the diversity of fan culture is represented.

If you have a minute, please check it out and send the link to your friends. The survey can be found at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=1idSovixsYIF7EpKO2EGpQ_3d_3d .

I've agreed to help spread the word, but if you have any questions/concerns, you can email her at kem82 @ georgetown.edu.

Well, tomorrow appears to be the big day in the [livejournal.com profile] savethe4400 campaign - they just updated on how the seeds site is now offering a whole case delivered to the offices for $20! So if you want to help out and have yet to write a letter or anything, here's your chance.

Time for a pimping!

Firstly, everyone who likes tech, games or other geeky things should checkout [livejournal.com profile] guruphil's new website DarkOrb. It's just finding its feet, is in need of content contributions but is certainly doing well for just a few weeks after launch. :)

For 4400 fans, I'd like to point out the newly revamped Jacqueline McKenzie (who, for anyone forgetful of names, plays Diana Skouris) community - [livejournal.com profile] jac_aholic. It's now got open membership, though with posts moderated, so if you've got anything to add - Jacqui news, icons, graphics etc - I'm sure it would be loved over there.

Now for the SGA stuffs - Stargate Fan Awards has opened voting finally. I've got a few things nominated myself, plus I know there's tons of great fic, art etc in there as always, so you should check it out, no excuses!

I'm also gonna point out [livejournal.com profile] rolleson has a poll up here asking about interest in a Sam Carter drabble-a-thon so if you might like to take part in one now or March you should go answer it.

Lastly, for McKay/Weir peeps [livejournal.com profile] aaobuttons has got a One Word Prompt Party going on. Easy to join in, just pick a word and make of it what you will. :D
purpleyin: Cameron from Sarah Connor Chronicles looking to the side (Default)
If you're interested in taking part in the [livejournal.com profile] savethe4400 campaign they've managed to get giantseeds.com to put together special 4400 campaign orders with free delivery if it's to USA Network in NY. Only $5 (about £2.50ish).

Seeds post

Post with the relevant address
http://savethe4400.livejournal.com/686.html

Watch out if you pay by Paypal as the paypal shipping address you use will override the one you enter in the system previous to that, so you might want to make up a Paypal address entry for the USA Networks address and make sure to change it when you do the Paypal part of their checkout. Otherwise you'll end up like me with it shipped to UK and having to email them to rectify the mistake.

For any flist/readers of this journal who are into Harry Potter fandom, incase you're interested there's a Severus/Lily art/fic exchange going on this year at [livejournal.com profile] less_for_you - signups here.

So, for anyone on my flist, or who reads my public entries, I'm currently appealing for Season 2 based McKay/Weir banners to use on McKay/Weir Central.

We've got captioned ones rotating on the main page, on refresh, from Season 1 that were part of a caption contest a while back and I was thinking it's time we got some new ones, hence this appeal.

They can be just Rodney, just Elizabeth, both of them and also team/general ones that look to be interesting for amusing captions. You don't get to caption them yourself - though you can submit captions to the suggestions that get will get voted on - but we give credit to both makers of the graphics and captioners on the site. For more details on specifications and how to submit please check out the news article on Central.

We've got a deadline for this of January 30th just to get the ball moving so we can hold the contests soon.
