Mod Post: Monthly reccers wanted!  
Volunteers wanted to participate in monthly recs!

In an effort to both get the community going AND see more awesome stories recommended (always a bonus!), I'm looking for some volunteers to do a month of reccing each. I would love to see any and all involved!

Basically, it would work on a similar premise to stargateficrec. Over there they have volunteers who recommend for a month on a particular genre, pairing or character in Stargate ficdom. Obviously we can't do quite the same here as we're not fandom-generic but something along the same lines may work.

    Volunteers:
  • Each volunteer recs for a one month term
  • During that one month, a minimum of 3 fics must be recced (up to as many as you like!)
  • Can be any genre as long as it's E/B-based
  • Once your month is up someone else takes over for the next month and so on

There's no real reward for taking part in this - just seeing lots more awesome stories, including a few that may be little known in the fandom!

If you volunteer you're still welcome to make 'random recs' during other months. The only difference is that if it's your month to rec, you HAVE to meet the monthly requirements (ie min. 3 fic recs).

If you're interested in being a volunteer reccer, please reply to this entry and let me know. I'll collate the list of volunteers and make another post with a list of months and which people will rec during those months.

If you have any questions or need clarification, reply here and I'll do my best to help! :)


Last note:
Regardless of if you volunteer or not you're still more than welcome to post recommendations at any time! Reading a really fantastic story over on Twilighted.net or FF.net and think others should know about it? Post about it here! We'd love to hear about it!

Thanks for volunteering! I'll put your name down and let you know further details shortly. :)

Okay, I'm looking at starting this next month (now that we're a few days into February). Would you be fine with taking March?

All you have to do is make 3 E/B-based recs anytime between 1-31 March (inclusive). If you want to make more recs than that, knock yourself out! But the minimum is 3.

Let me know if that doesn't work for you. :)
SG1Padawansg1padawan on February 27th, 2009 09:45 am (UTC)
I don't know if you got my last reply but I was hoping to start the monthly recs in March. If that's too short notice, do you mind taking April? :)
lyamainulyamainu on February 27th, 2009 06:14 pm (UTC)
April's good, I'll be out of the country in March.
SG1Padawansg1padawan on March 7th, 2009 12:11 am (UTC)
Fantastic. Alright, April is good to go then! :)

Now that it's April, are you still right to do 3 recs this month? Let me know if not.

Just a reminder, they can basically be any recs as long as they're E/B and it has to be a minimum of 3 (but if you want to go all out and rec more, have at it!).

Cheers!

i'm willing to rec! :]
SG1Padawansg1padawan on February 4th, 2009 08:34 am (UTC)
Fantastic! Thanks very much! I'll let you know further details shortly. :)
SG1Padawansg1padawan on February 27th, 2009 09:47 am (UTC)
I'm just getting this finalised (been a busy month!) but at this stage you'll be #2 to rec and will either have April or May (depending if we start the monthly recs in March or April). Will either of those work for you? I'll let you know the definite month shortly. :)
Emilieinlovewithlion on February 28th, 2009 04:14 am (UTC)
yeah, it's fine.
i read too many fanfic anywayss.
SG1Padawansg1padawan on March 7th, 2009 12:12 am (UTC)
I've just checked with the other reccer - they will be doing April, so do you mind doing May?

If that works in okay with you, I'll try and post a reminder the first week of May. :)
Emilieinlovewithlion on March 7th, 2009 12:17 am (UTC)
fine with me :)
SG1Padawansg1padawan on March 7th, 2009 12:19 am (UTC)
Cheers for that!

SG1Padawansg1padawan on February 4th, 2009 08:35 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'll let you know further details shortly. :)
SG1Padawansg1padawan on February 27th, 2009 09:48 am (UTC)
Okay, I'm just getting this finalised (been a busy month!) but at this stage you'll be #3 to rec and will either have May or June (depending if we start the monthly recs in March or April). Will either of those work for you? I'll let you know the definite month shortly. :)
SG1Padawansg1padawan on March 7th, 2009 12:13 am (UTC)
I've got the others reccers sorted - if you're still interested, June will be your month.

If that works in okay with you, I'll try and post a reminder the first week of June. :)
