Introducing ... THE LOST LIST

Well, I did it. I started yet another Lost comm. Here it is: thelostlist.

ETA: I think I've hit on the solution. Of course, it is after midnight and it may not seem so brilliant in the morning, but here's the general idea.

What I'd like it to be is THE go-to place for Lost fic, an archive of great fics, not just about Jack/Sawyer (which of course, we love) but where readers can quickly find fics by character or theme.

But I'm not sure how we should do this. Have people sign up to be an "expert" on each character and then come up with, say, 5-10 fics on that character? Free-for-all? Master posts where people comment with, say, favorite Driveshaft fics? Or some magical combo? One of the key components that will set it apart from other rec comms is that yes, people will be able to submit their own fics. What do you think?


How should we do this thing? (Check as many as you like):

People volunteer to be experts on a character and compile a comprehensive list of fic
0(0.0%)
Anyone can submit fic to a master post on that theme
3(20.0%)
People post as often as they see fit - everything is organized by tags
0(0.0%)
People can make requests, such as "Genderswap" fic or whatever.
0(0.0%)
Some other brilliant approach, which I shall explain in comments

You know, you might do well to take a look at bandom_recs and see how they handle rec themes. Each day of the week has a set "theme day", such as Storytime Sunday, and each month has an assigned person for each theme. It's worked out wonderfully! Not saying you have to do that verbatim or anything, but it might help you figure out some logistics. :)

Thanks for the tip! I think something a bit different might be called for in Lost fandom as it's much less active and reccing seems to be some kind of exotic activity, LOL. :)
