About This Community

What is this?

This is The Sunnydale Herald. A fandom newsletter that posts every day (save Sunday) with notable tidbits from fandom journals in Buffy and Angel.


The purpose of this journal is:

a. Encourage fandom members to try out new pairings, explore new fics, participate in their community, and meet new people.
b. Increase the amount of feeback given to fics, vids, etc.
c. Increase awareness on issues, questions, polls, and commentary happening in the community.
d. Inform fandom members on various new events (such as communities)


Who runs this?

[profile] spuzz is the creator of the Herald and [personal profile] menomegirl manages it.


Who are the editors?

Your editors are [personal profile] secondalto, [personal profile] menomegirl, [profile] fractal_bat and [personal profile] blond_bear.


The Editions: Basics

So how exactly does this work?

Each editor has a unique way of finding notable things to put up on each day. Either trolling through friend's lists and community lists or finding links from rec journals and news sources, or reading from the reading journal [personal profile] sd_herald_list. When enough information is gathered, and the editor deems the links suitable it will be combined in a entry and posted.


When do you post?

Every day save Sunday and selected holidays. Times vary according to the editor who is posting.


Can I comment on entries?

Yes. You can post your opinion on the entries and corrections of course are always welcome. Also if need be, you have a interesting tidbit or news to post you can always comment on the most recent entry.


Why are the comments being screened?

For several reasons, one being that we want to encourage people to comment and rec themselves and screening might entail less embarrasment for the reccer if done so. Another is to keep the journal page clean and neat, and the third reason is to not make our reccing of a fic redundant if people can just read it in the comments.


I left a comment and no one responded to me. Did you ignore me?

No. All comments are read by the editor for that entry as well as [personal profile] menomegirl and probably all the other editors. If they do not respond, that does not mean they did not read your comment.


Who posts on what day?


[personal profile] secondalto : Mon & Tues
[personal profile] menomegirl : Wednesday
[profile] fractal_bat: Thursday
[personal profile] blond_bear : Fri & Sat


The Editions: Content

What are fic criteria?

Fics are purely on editor's personal opinions, but we try for a nice small quantity of good fics to post and for you all to read. But we do make sure that it has the basic components of good fic, like spell check, beta, characterization and a detailed header. Please note however that we only post a selection of fics for the day, not every fic.


What about self pimping?

Leave a comment on one of our issues, we'll take a look at it. (If you don't want constructive crit and are afraid of getting turned away, don't comment.) The editors are assuming you want feedback. Don't expect to automatically get put on the update list. There are a wide variety of tastes within the small groups of editors so you'll get some opinions. But we can't read everything, and we won't try. We are normal people with jobs and some of us try for social lives also.


What constitutes news and tidbits?

Updated fics, icon posts, new interesting discussions or memes, a small selection of fics, new groups or communities, news pertaining to the actual show, garnered from sites.


What does not constitute news and tidbits?

Gossip. We will not post any personal information from fandom members, nor will we post about the latest fights or cattiness in the fandom. Anything that is not current or posted on that day.


What if I put something under 'friend's only' and one of the editors is on my friend's list?

We will not post anything put under friend's only, as this was only meant for friend's of that person. Only if fics, discussions etc. are posted outside the journal, or made public will we post it in the edition.

Can I pimp you guys out?

We love pimpage. So feel free to advertise. One way to advertise is if you find something and are commenting on it, link back to the Herald.


Can I give you guys feedback?

If you find something you really like, think we are doing something well or bad, comment or email us. We would love any feedback and opinions. However please be respectful to the editors. This is not their job or their life. They only have so much time. Please be aware of this when leaving a comment. Any and all direspectful comments will be deleted.
