Welcome to [livejournal.com profile] camelot_drabble's very first Friending Meme.

Here's a quick code - if you'd like to *pimp* the meme.

What's this all about?

This friending meme is for members of [livejournal.com profile] camelot_drabble and Merlin fans in general! If you'd like to meet new people and interact with others, feel free to join in on the fun.

Please note, not everyone's LJ is open to the public and some people only use it for private use. Please don't be offended if members wish to interact with you but won't "friend" you on LJ right away.

Meme away and have a great time!

Fill out the questionnaire (as much or as little as you'd like):

This event will run from the 4th of September until the 14th!

Just wanted to share some statistics regarding the community. This community is just wonderful!

The following data is based on tags usage only. It's possible there are more entries with certain characters, pairings, etc, but they just haven't been tagged.

It's really no surprise that the tag used the most is type:drabble, for a grand total of 2587 times! In comparison, type:drawble has been used a smaller (but still amazing) 119 times.

Thanks Tat for this data.

Hi everyone! So you may or may not have noticed a problem with how the tags were stacking in the sidebar. It was going from prompt 9, to the 100s, back to prompt 10. This is to let you know that we've fixed the problem and the tags should stack correctly now. You don't have to do anything (and fellow mods, you don't have to change how you've been creating tags for prompt 100 and above); this was simply to let you know about the changes.

One thing though: to make sure it stacked correctly, I had to go back and change how tags for prompts 1-99 were labeled. In doing so, I was able to check the tag usage statistics and found them quite interesting, so I thought I'd share them with you.

We just want to take this time to thank everyone who has been here with us this past year. This community is our baby and something we are really proud of. In the year this community has been here we have gained a total of 162 members, 1,193 entries, and 14,771 comments. We’re proud to say that we have made wonderful friends who keep cheerleading each other, a community that is drama free, comfortable, laid-back, and a bit intimate. None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for all of you. And while our show is now finished, here is to another wonderful and successful year. We will be here as long as you have us.

♥ CD Mods.

To make things easier on the mods, we now ask that you apply for your contributor tag. Once you have made a total of FIVE entries to the community, you may apply for a contributor tag by leaving a comment here. To check to see how many entries you have made, go to http://camelot-drabble.livejournal.com/?poster=username (just replace username with your own, of course) and link those entries here. Please give us some time to get back to you! TIA!

Hey guys! We've noticed a couple of people posting multi-part works recently. This isn't a post to remind you about the 1000 limit (sometimes you can't get the words to stop, we understand that), but we wanted to ask the following: if you do post something with multiple parts, can you link the other parts somewhere in the entry? That way people don't have to search the community for the other part(s) (and for one mod, it makes it easier on her when it's her turn to write up the M/A newsletter. ;) )

Just a quick mod post to let you know about updates to the tagging system:

+ All of you that have a contributor tag, your entries should finally be linked to your tag. Sorry about the delay, but going through 900+ entries was no easy feat! If some of your works are missing from your tag, please let us know!

+ You may or may not know, but to get a contributor tag, you must post at least five entries to the community. To keep track on how many posts you've made, you can click "http://camelot-drabble.livejournal.com/?poster=username" (and replace "username" with your lj name of course) If you have five entries but don't have a contributor tag, tell us so we can correct that right away!

+ So the tags aren't so long, we've shortened them:
== "contributor:username" is now "*c:username"
== "character:[character name]" is now "c:[character name]"
== "pairing:[pairing]" is now "p:[pairing]"
== "prompt #:[prompt}" is now "pt #:[prompt]"

No need to retag your entries, they've already been changed over. However, if there's a tag you need (either for a character or pairing), please let us know so we can add it!
