Thanks to *everyone* who did anything to get involved in this community--wrote something for it, pimped it, made something (good *or* purposefully bad! *eg*), came to chat, let me brainstorm with you, uploaded something for a fellow fandom member, betaed a story for someone here. We have over 200 people who friended this place in less than a week, dozens of stories written, dozens of manips and postcards and uploads and new people to watch out for on LJ.
I sincerely hope that everyone had as much of a blast as I did, and I'm thinking two things:
1) That we should have this every year, so yeah, thanks for being great guinea pigs. *g* I hope to come up with something bigger and better for 2007. It can be our online VVC or Escapade every year. It's not the same as meeting in person, true, but it can be truly made into the very next best thing. Next year, this will be hosted in August or September, so keep an eye out!
2) That there should be a regular AIM chat for anyone who is on livejournal and in some fandom. We had a great group of 20 tonight, and people liked the idea of more to come. So I will be hosting a regular monthly chat, with plenty of head notice for people to attend and just talk about--random things. Very, very, very loosely moderated, and free flowing conversation. I'd host it on IRC, but that tends to be complicated for a lot of people, so we'll see how this goes.
Now, congratulations to thefannishwaldo! Your entry postcard featuring Rodney with a sex change won! E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get you some details on your prize. *g*
And finally, I like to poll at the end of any project I run to see if there's anything I can do better next year, or something you thought went badly this year that I shouldn't do again, etc. So, suggestions box!
Any suggestions for SummerCon 2007?
