Who@51

Have you ever thought what it's like to be wanderers in the Fourth Dimension?

Welcome to Who @ 50!

WHOBANNER7_zps14f0d251

There isn't ever going to be another 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, and this is a community where fans of the greatest television show of all time can come together to mark that occasion and celebrate it together. It's a place for people to post about the anniversary itself, about 50th anniversary-related media and news, meta about what Who means to them, details of RL events they're participating in or organising to celebrate, or just general japery. Fan fiction, fan art, fan vids, fan mixes and all other forms of creativity are more than welcome.

There are going to be monthly fanworkathons (as said above, all fiction, art, vids, podfic etc, etc welcome), one a month for the duration of the anniversary year and covering all of the Doctors to date, starting in January with Eleven and counting down to the anniversary itself in November 2013. Here are the fanworks that have been produced already this year, as well as the fanwork-a-thon schedule for the remaining months:

I hope as many Who fans as possible, of whatever age and duration, fans of whatever era in the history of the show and its many spinoffs and associated media, join and participate in this comm. And I hope together we can play our small part in making 2013 a year to remember!

Who @ 50 is also on Dreamwidth!

who_at_50 announcement

jjpor (aka the mod round here) has posted this announcement to the Dreamwidth side of the comm:

You know how it is. You decide to dust off the old LJ after a couple of months of inactivity in anticipation of the new series of Doctor Who (tomorrow, folks, as if you weren't well, well aware of it), and discover that...well, I'm sure you're also well, well aware of the Putin-related Terms of Service unilateral auto-foot-shooting that Livejournal's owners have indulged in. I actually wasn't until I tried to log on yesterday, but I am now.

So, in all conscience, I don't actually feel I can continue to post things to LJ, unless the world unexpectedly comes to its senses at some point in the future. I'm not hopeful of this happening, I'll be honest.

So the LJ version of the Who@50 comm is effectively defunct as of now. The comm will, however, continue pretty much as normal over here on DW, if normal is the word. Not sure how to announce this on LJ without agreeing to the ToS, so I guess I'm just hoping people see it here on DW.

I had planned to be the last person on LJ along with lost_spook. Alas, it was not to be.

I now return you to your normal programming.


Please reply at the Dreamwidth post, if you can.
