*has clearly lost my mind*

lost_newsletter

Lost needed a newsletter, dammit! I don't know if I'm going to keep this going but I thought I'd give it a shot. If anyone wants to volunteer to take turns compiling on a weekly basis, let me know! Right now, it's news & fic only, no icon listings because I figure everyone can just get what they need at losticons.

I know, I am CLEARLY nuts! And yes, let me know when you might be able to pitch in! :)

I'm surprised Lost doesn't have one already!

Thanks for creating it though--even if it does make you go crazy ;)

Your icon is clearly approriate for this entry...haha!

Lost had a few newsletters that are all inactive now, alas. It's a lot of work to keep them up so I'm not making any promises but I figured I'd give it a go!

Ooh, such a good idea. -cheerleads for you-

I'd tentatively offer to help out: I've never done any newslettering before, so if anyone else offers you'd probably be better off going with them.

Aww, that's so sweet of you! Basically, I just compiled fics from the main fic comms and also interesting stuff, links and things, from my flist. I'd be very glad for the help! And, ideally, people would submit links and save some time that way!

Omg, that is awesome! There are all these writers that I've never heard of and fics that have not popped up on my flist. Obviously, there's a bunch of stuff going on in the fandom that I have no clue about.

Hey, there were interviews about Dom's departure that I read that you don't list. Do you want those links?

Ooh, yes please! Basically, I complied from the main Lost fic comms, lostfichallenge and my flist so there must be tons out there I'm not seeing either.

Call me crazy, but I'd like to help out!

The next couple of weeks are a bit mad for me with exams etc, but after that I'd happily help out on a weekly basis!

Awesome! I will definitely come bug you later on! :)

YOU ARE A ROCK STAR!

This so needed to be done. I could probably help out a bit if you need helpers.

I kept seeing all the other fandom's newsletters and figured we needed one too! We'll see how much work it is! I went back about a week and compiled stuff from the main fic comms and my flist, but yes, it would be lovely to be able to trade off with other people! ;)

I can help out as needed. I'm not too well connected in the fandom, but if you need help coding the posts or any of that sort of things - just give me a yell.

May. 29th, 2007 07:03 pm (UTC)
Oh, and you might want to screen the comment on the post, so then if people what to submit their own fic, they can do so in the clear. Some list set up a email account for submissions.

Oh, this is a great idea!! I'm very excited by this, one place to gather all the news and fics I always miss!
Thank you, I imagine it can be quite an effort. *joins cheerleading*
I can offer a small help if you need something, but I don't feel up to compile it alone, sorry. I'm quite clueless as how to do it.
Again, thank you for creating it!

And now, off to read the first one!

Maybe people can help by compiling from other comms, or news items about a certain actor or pairings...?

And thanks!

You have clearly gone mad. Mwaahaha! And I blame it all on your pesky computer chair. I'm pretty good with news stuff, if you need more crazy people to help out.
halfdutch
May. 29th, 2007 07:53 pm (UTC)
Ooh, yes, that would be lovely! And you could provide links to spoilers without me having to read the spoilers, maybe? That would be the biggest help of all. *SMOOCH*

Yay!! It's about time Lost had one, but I BOW TO YOU..it's a whole hell of a lot of work.

Thank you, hon! It is high time but yes, I'm sure it will be a lot of work. But I've had some offers of help, so I think I'll be okay!

this is rockin'!

i'm always like the last person to know about 'lost' news, so i probably wouldn't be the best one to compile things. i like the submission idea though!
halfdutch
May. 30th, 2007 01:58 am (UTC)
You can always submit something and if it's new to me, I'll definitely add! ;)

Brilliant idea! *joins*

We needed that! Well, *I* def. need that, because I tend to lose track of things! Give me some time to figure out how it all works and I'll be glad to help (Well,let's say I could help if the new edition comes out on the weekend, cause weekdays...there's this work problem ;)

*applauds you*

I often forget what fics were posted to what comm -- or maybe never cross-posted at all -- so I hope this'll help with that. :) And I started this today but it could probably switch to weekends. It's a work in progress! Or, if things are busy enough, it could end up being twice weekly. It all depends on how things go and who's willing to do what. So thanks for the offer!

Cool idea! I totally rely on the newsletters in other fandoms because I defriended all the comms due to flist spammage so it will be good to have a Lost one to add to the list. :)

Maybe you could set up an email account that people could submit links to, give them another option as well as leaving a comment on previous newsletters.
halfdutch
May. 30th, 2007 01:41 am (UTC)
Yay! It seemed like it was something we needed. *nods*

And thanks for the email suggestion. :)
