Hello to all and any who still frequent these waters.

I've had a lovely but sad anon come to me to ask if there's anything to be done about enticing some activity 'round these here parts, so I'm opening it up to the floor, in a manner of speaking.

I'm happy to close Prompt Post 8, even though it hasn't yet reached 10 pages, and open a new one, if anyone feels like it would be good to start fresh.

I'd also be happy to start a new Drabble Fest, if anyone reckons that'd be enough to kickstart and get some creative juices flowing - I think it was modestly successful last time, and the drabblers got some fairly decent feedback, too, so it was a nice time had by all.

Let me know if there's anything you think would gently encourage a little activity.

Anon + screened comments are on so feel free - suggest, berate, cry... go nuts :)

Before we begin, please ensure you have read and are willing to abide by the community rules. There aren't many, and they're relatively simple and straight-forward, but it's better to know your boundaries than not to ;)

You may still fill for prompts on previous prompt posts, but you may not still prompt in that post. Anyone found to be doing so will have their comment deleted. New prompts go in this post :)

Rough Guide to the 'Meme
  1.     Comment anonymously (or not, but with some of the prompts we're used to seeing...anon is generally a good idea) with your request. Include whatever details you deem relevant - pairing, kink, specific idea, etc. For example:
F1; Webber/Vettel. Winning and losing. Hurt/comfort.
      (i)   all kinks welcome - from bdsm to snuggling up close. whatever you want.
      (ii)  all drivers / riders / bosses / personnel / media / etc, from any season at all in any area of motorsport are welcome.
  2.     Author(s) reply either anonymously or not, depending on personal preference and brazenness, to your request.

NOTE     : Some prompts may be more popular than others and may have more than one fill. Don't be disheartened!

Misc Info:
  ♠     Due to the 4,300 character limit restriction LJ places on comments, this sort of thing works easiest for drabbles and ficlets, but if you've written longer, you're more than welcome to post - please ensure you number your comments in the subject box, however. Saves a bit of confusion ;)
  ♠     If your fic is an absolutely bizarre length (and believe me, it happens), you are welcome to either host it outside of the comm and link to it in response to the original prompt (if you're comfortable with being un-Anon), or you can email it to me at the email address provided on the contact post and I'll post it to the comm Anonymously for you.
  ♠     There is no limit on the number of words you can write from a prompt - you can write anything from 100 word drabbles (though you may get a bit of a funny look for it!) to 10k masterpieces (...probably prompting more funny looks, but plenty of enthusiasm)!
  ♠     There is no limit on the number of requests you write for, or on the amount you can write for each one. You can write a bazillion drabbles on Webber/Vettel's hurt/comfort if you so desire.
  ♠     You may write as soon as you see a request you like.
  ♠     You may write for your own requests.

In effort to keep things neat and tidy, I will periodically post new prompt posts. Once we have 10 pages of prompt/response, I will make a new post. You must then start requesting in that post, though you may still write for the first.

Anon commenting is on! Go, go, go!

Please Note!!! Because LJ is particularly irritating, there are no longer subject lines for comments. Please be considerate and warn for any potential triggers in the first line of your responses to prompts. Thank you.

Hola, hola, hola!

Someone contacted me via the MK Tumblr and suggested a drabble fest, so here it is!

Community rules as well as, for the most part, posting rules apply, as always. Anyone found to not be adhering to these will have their comment deleted, regardless of how popular or long the thread may or may not be.

So, as is the nature of drabbles, everyone should be aiming for at least 100 words, but definitely under 500. A little over or a little under is fine, but try not to get too crazy! Anything exceeding "drabble" should go in a prompt post, not in here.

As always, please warn for any potential triggers in the first line of your comment.

I can't think of anything more to ramble about, so, have at it!

What up, what up, what's happenin'!

Hey everyone, just a quick one inspired by my darling, glamorous, and entirely anonymous assistant who keeps me up to date with what's going on here if (lbr, when) I disappear from LJ.

I've put together a motorskink Tumblr, where you can badger me endlessly ask questions pertaining to the comm if I don't seem to be around, anonymously or not. You can use this to ask general questions or to report wank, or anything else that you can dream up - providing it's relevant to the community. I go into more detail over there, so check it out if you have the time.

The main reason for this is because I'm kind of useless at LJ these days, but this comm is my baby and though I'm not active, I do adore this fandom and the people I've met in it, so I want to keep running it for you guys, and I'm very active on Tumblr. Thus, because I've made the motors Tumblr a sideblog, any asks submitted to it will go into my main inbox and I cannot physically miss the notification for a message because I'm checking it all the time.

Note: This is purely for your information: you do not need to follow the Tumblr or even keep tabs on it if you don't want to!

Hey everyone! Gosh! Thanks to the Anon who came over and nudged me on tumblr, haha. Sorry I haven't been around at all lately - life's gone a bit mental. Thanks for your patience and not staging a mutiny, ha! Without further delay, here's a fresh new prompt post!

Prompted by a member asking a question.

LiveJournal's been horrible lately.

Poll #1888419 Move to DW?

Should we move over to DreamWidth?

Yes
7(20.6%)
No
27(79.4%)


Screened comments on.
Anon comments on.
Nobody can view the results of the poll bar me.

I have a DW account and have no issue setting mkink up over there if it's what y'all want, so let me know, either by commenting or responding to the poll (if you're not comfortable responding to the poll, comment anonymously and I'll still count you as a vote ;) )

The member who commented pointed out, as well, that because the meme is anonymous (lol when I'm not being a dolt and forget to switch it on, ay ay ay), you wouldn't necessarily have to have a DW account to participate.

New post! Quick thanks to everyone who shared their thoughts with me in this post (if you haven't, it isn't too late - I'm constantly checking this post!), there are some things I'll be implementing soon-ish that were glossed over there that got positive feedback. Exciting! Anyhow, let's go!

Hello everybody~.

I've been thinking about what I can do to increase the liveliness this community. I'm super, super, seuperrr psyched about how successful it is already, but I'm curious as to if anyone has any ideas to encourage growth within the community. I have a couple of ideas I want to put forth. Anon commenting will be on, so feel free to agree or disagree, or suggest something yourself. Screened comments will not be on, being as I'd like to encourage discussion - flame comments will be deleted, constructive criticism will not.

First and foremost, don't be alarmed if I stop posting in this comm from my account! I'll be starting to post from kinkmodhat from now on! This includes any future mod posts, prompt posts and intervention-esque comments. This is for reasons quite evident and also may have something to do with perhaps getting together a mod team of sorts - just a couple of people to keep things running smoothly, but more on that later.

This could get lengthy, so I'll stick the rest behind a cut. I'd really like your opinions, please!!

Read on...Collapse )
