It was the comm for Foxy/Josh fic. :-/

:-/ I found an old list of Foxshy ficlets but I don't think anyone cares enough for me to post them.

Oh well. There's still lost_rps.

I don't know. I bet there's folks who've never even read a Foxshy fic, or at least who don't know the older ones. No harm in posting them, I say.

I can't remember who started that comm. But it seems like a lot of comms got deleted lately, presumably by maintainers who moved on to other interests. :(

Yeah, a lot of people have moved on, haven't they? But you'd think they'd at least ask if anyone else wanted to mod it first. Then again, not much Josh/Foxy fic being written these days, really.

How long has it been since that community was updated? I figure whoever was running it lost interest, or figured there was no one else interest so they deleted it. :/

No idea when it was last updated and I can't recall who even ran it anymore! I don't even know if anyone x-posted their most recent Foxshy fics there: I think I've seen maybe four total in the past year.

Thanks. Wow, I don't think I even know them!

Urgh. It's so annoying when that happens, I wish comm mods who get bored with a pairing/show/whatever would say so and offer the comm to someone else instead of just deleting it. For one thing, some people post directly to comms instead of linking to their journal so deleting a comm means deleting their fic along with it. Grrrr.

It's very fucking annoying. They could have at least asked if someone else wanted to take over the comm. They probably figured no one cared anymore... just about the only people writing that pairing lately are you and Z and turns out she'd never even heard of it.

I see that someone has managed to find who used to mod it - maybe send them a message and ask them to undelete so someone else can take over modding? It's still in the '30 days to undelete' stage at the moment so...

I hardly need another comm to mod but I went ahead and emailed her. Thanks for the suggestion.

I didn't necessarily mean you should do it! If it gets undeleted I'd be happy to step in. :)

It seems like a lot of the comms are being deleted and that makes me sad. They got rid of a lot of the rare ship comms that I used to post at. They could at least post a warning and ask if someone wants to mod.

I know! Just because the mod has lost interest, doesn't mean everyone else has.

Exactly!

What really makes me sad is the difference between people in the fandom from Season One and the ones here now. Very few people have stuck around. I mean I've lurked since S1 (I only started ficcing late Season Two) and it feels like a lot of people have run away from the fandom. Maybe I'm wrong.

Oh, you're not wrong. :-/

Take a look at the first few months at ficinabottle and then see how many of those people are still writing Lost fic. I think it's just me and eponine119! I admit the show's been frustrating at times (and I've been as hard -- or harder -- on it as anyone) but I still love the characters and fandom. The hiatus of doom def. didn't help.

Yeah, that's what I mean. I remember both your names from WAY back. And also mysticxf but not many others. And these were good writers who disappeared. It just kind of sucks.

Not that there isn't good writers now because, duh, there are, it's just like the old guard kind of...disappeared.

And yes, I am waxing poetic.

Yeah, definitely sucks. A lot of those people who vacated Lost fandom (or left LJ altogether) were my friends so that has been sad to see them go. Some I still talk with frequently about other things, some are just gone for good. I have to say that some of the people who are still most active in fandom are also the ones who've had the most trouble staying committed to the show itself. And that's awfully cool of them. I'm definitely more about the fandom than the show at this point myself. I'm happily surprised if an ep is good but they've really tried my patience.

Anyway, I'm glad new people are still finding Lost fandom and the caliber of the fics being written is still amazing. I guess some people just got bored writing the same characters and pairings over and over and you can't really blame them. Still sad, but understandable. As for me, I've never found another show or fandom I like as much. Supernatural came close but since I don't do Wincest, that's a fandom I really don't participate in much. Plus, OMG the wank that goes on there!

Yeah, I love this fandom more than the show at this point. The people here are just great. And I do understand why people left, I just could never do it myself. This is the one fandom I've ever really been in and felt comfortable in.

(And yeah, the Supernatural fandom is nuts. Beyond nuts sometimes. Makes me glad I'm only a sometime fan of the show)
