We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT / 3am UTC on Sunday, Apr 30 (or May 1 for you transatlantic types.).

I don't have a list of changes for you yet, but most will fall into the following categories: things users have complained about to support volunteers, things support volunteers have complained about to developers, things [staff profile] denise has complained about not working the way she expects them to (and as we all know, The Boss is Always Right), and things that were printing warnings over and over in the production server logs, making it hard to spot when less frequent, more urgent errors were being printed. Oh, and also all the unused code I ripped out at the roots, which if you notice that, I did it wrong.

To sum up: we are rolling out a bunch of requested changes, so thank you all for your feedback!

If you're new to Dreamwidth and interested in tracking our development process, our commit logs are published to [site community profile] changelog and [community profile] changelog_digest, and every month or so, one of our volunteers will translate those often-cryptic entries into witty, informative code tours! The most recent one was published on April 1, so we're about due for a new one. Hint, hint.

We'll update here again to let you know when the code push is imminent!

Good morning, my fellow fans, and a very happy Jean Havoc Appreciation Week to you! <3 I myself have been enjoying quite a bit of sexy, badass Jean, and it's only the second day! :D

And now, onto the reason for this post....

1280x900x4c6bf208f1cc9ea3a9a1018.jpg
For the record, that is official art, ladies and gentlemen...I'm just sayin' XD

RoyXEd Festa will be a 20-day long PARTY in which you are free to post fanworks of any type-- not just romance but also humor, angst, crack, plotfic, PWP (<--highly encouraged by modXD)...you name it, you've got it if it focuses on our boys as a 'ship. Go wild!!!

Other notes:

1. Although it is named "RoyXEd Festa," EdXRoy is also more than welcome!

2. Even if the work is technically platonic, if it features mainly Roy and Ed interacting in a way that would be appreciated by shipping fanpeople, feel free to post it!

3. If you have fics/pics that you wrote/drew specifically for RoyXEd Day and/or 5/20 in previous years, please do cross-post them here for people to enjoy during the fest!

4. Crossposting of works you created for this event all over the known fan universe is very much encouraged, so please do also put your works up on your DW/AO3/FF.net/Tumblr/etc.etc.!

5. Feel free to include the banner when you do (though not required). You can also link to this post if you like! (It is unlocked)

Banners (900, 600, 300; top banner is 800)) )

6. If someone on another platform asks if they can participate from X platform/without an LJ/DW, the answer is yes! They do not need to ask for permission, but shooting a link to the completed fanwork to the mod would be greatly appreciated so the fanwork can be shared with the members here.


One last thing: In order to get up momentum for the big day (5/20) and to encourage/inspire others to create and post fanworks, posting early in the time period (first and second week of May) is highly encouraged!


Good luck and have fun getting those fanworks ready! <333 Any questions/comments/cheering/squeeing, leave them in the comments! :D

-Fanny

[ SECRET SUBMISSIONS POST #540 ]

RULES:
1. One secret link per comment.
2. 750x750 px or smaller.
3. Link directly to the image.

Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #2: If you would like WARNINGS (such as spoilers or common triggers -- list of some common ones here) to be noted in the main post before the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!

Celebrate FMA on DW

Celebrate FMA is now open on DW.

[community profile] celebrate_fma 

Also check out the post here which clarifies a few questions anyone might have.

<3333 you all,

Fanny

[personal profile] anotherfmafan posting in [community profile] celebrate_fma
Hello, fellow FMA-lovers, mod Fanny here! <3

As of today, the Celebrate FMA DW comm is also open and includes all the content/comments/tags, etc. through the end of February (which was the last time fanworks were posted). From here on out, all mod posts will be posted to both comms.

If you have both an LJ and a DW account, and don't mind posting your fanworks to both comms, that would be great. If you want to post to only one or the other, that is okay, too.

If there are fanworks posted only to one, the mod will make a summary post with links to ensure that members who belong to only the other version of the comm see everything. Now, as for fic, if you would like to include a link to the work on AO3 in your post to facilitate members from both versions reading it, feel free! The mod will include that link in the summary post as well.

Reminder of the way this comm works in general:
  • This comm accepts cross-posts of both new and old seasonal/event-related/holiday-related FMA fics ("old" meaning fics/pics posted elsewhere in the past) at any time. You do not have to wait until the season in which the event is if you don't want to--though some do want to wait, which I totally get! For a brush-up on what kind of fic qualifies as seasonal/event-related/holiday-related, see the comm profile.
  • The comm encourages you to fake-cut (use a link to the post at your journal instead of LJ-cutting the fic posted on the comm itself) if you prefer to do so.
  • You are encouraged to cross-post your works to any and all applicable communities, journals, etc. that you have.
  • You can post to this comm using a link to your fanwork at a location other than LJ/DW. That is okay. Please just remember to mark with pairing, warnings, and other pertinent information, preferably in the standard label style (there is a template on the comm profile).
Clarification on participation in Celebrate FMA fandom events (Days of Yore, Havoc Week, RoyXEd Festa, etc.)
  • Some of these events do require that fanworks be created specifically for the event/posted to the comm before being crossposted elsewhere in order to qualify, so be sure to check the rules of the event in question.
  • You can participate in these events even if you do not have an LJ or DW. All you need to do is 1. let the mod know so she can keep you updated, 2. follow any rules of the event, and 3. send the mod the link to your works when they are finished so she can make a post in your stead to direct other comm members to your work. Including a link to the event information post on Celebrate FMA (LJ/DW) when you post your work to other platforms would be very nice.

I love this comm, and I know many of our members work just as hard as I do to keep it running. Please do participate/keep participating and invite your friends! Feel free to pimp the comm on your LJ/DW any time, and especially if you have recently switched your journal/vowed to use it more often!

The more the merrier, and there's always more FMA fandom fun to be had!

Thank you for reading, and I look forward to many happy days of celebrating FMA with you all <3

Jean Havoc Appreciation Week 2017

It is two weeks until the start of Havoc Week, so ladies and gentlemen, get those fanworks ready!!

The themes for each day are as follows:

23 April -- Havoc Day
24 April -- Strip Havoc Naked Day
25 April -- Spying on Havoc Day
26 April -- Lunchtime Havoc Day
27 April -- Spank Havoc Day
28 April -- Havoc Gets Lucky Day
29 April -- Molest Sleeping Havoc Day
30 April -- Sexy Outfit Havoc Day


That is a whole lot of Havoc to enjoy! :D

Also check out the fics written for Havoc Week in previous years by using the Havoc Week tag!

I'm so looking forward to all that sexy, sexy Jean! :D

April brings with it early spring themes such as Easter (April 16th), as well as all kinds of general spring themes, like graduation, warmer weather, flowers, hanami, new life/fertility, etc.

Also keep May in mind in advance, as it is chock-full of celebrations to create fanworks for! :D
----------------------------------------------------

Poll results

Thanks very much to everyone who participated in the poll! Amazingly we had zero contradicting opinions, so it looks like we all on the same page and should have a great time!

So:
Havoc Week will use the same themes as previous years.

RoyXEd Festa will be a 20-day free-for-all! (No specific themes, etc.)

Keep an eye out for separate posts about these two events to be up very soon!
--------------------------------------------------

Two other things one could write celebration-themed FMA fic for:

Our own [personal profile] vexed_wench is hosting AllBingo this month for the theme of colors! Plenty of those to enjoy in the Amestrian spring! ;) (Or mourn the lack of in the Munich spring? (<-Angst-lover XD)

There is also a new multi-fandom comm named [community profile] whatif_au, where they select an AU theme every month that you can write for any fandom. It is a very open, laid-back comm, without many restrictions or even deadlines! We'd love to see some participation from the FMA contingent of this brand-new comm!

This month's theme is "What if (character of your choice) never died?" All kinds interesting choices there for FMA! A new spin on if fandom-favorite Hughes had never died? Trisha? The Rockbells? Nash Trigham? Nina? Hoenheim's son with Dante (Envy)??

It's up to you!

The importer has (mostly) caught up!

Apr. 19th, 2017 11:02 pm
denise: Image: Me, facing away from camera, on top of the Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome (Default)
[staff profile] denise posting in [site community profile] dw_maintenance
Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!

April 2017
