Announcement [2007 Mar. 7th|02:40 pm]
Readdown to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


Tis your mod here, I apologize for the lack of posts lately. My internet has been having troubles the last few weeks, and school is starting to eat up my time. I will be gone on vacation for two weeks starting tomorrow, and will likely not have access to the internet during that time.

This leaves the community with several options, and so I'd like your input. I can either close down the community as I think most of the members are also members of deathly_cntdwn and are discussing there. The closing could be either a permanent or temporary basis. If temporary I would probably try and resume regular posting of chapters when it is time to start Prisoner of Azkaban. Another option is if any of you would be willing to help me co-moderate community, we could work on getting the missing posts up, and I would leave it to you to do the chapter posts for the next week and a half or so.

Again, I apologize for the lack of updates and communication and would love to hear what you all think.

I would be more than willing to help you co-mod the community. My life is pretty open at the moment and I'm always up around midnight/1 am to post the new chapter being up. A suggestion, if you do decide to have someone co-mod is to have a big post of the chapters that we have missed to ask readers to see the common theme between them and just go on with the chapter that we should be at.

I see below someone has already volunteered their help, but I would be happy to assist as well.

It would be a shame to close down the community, but I think you are right that there is a lot of overlap with deathly_cntdwn, and if you are busy, you shouldn't be stressing yourself out over something small like this.

Hey, not related to this. But I was trying to post a theory to another community, and accidentally sent it off to you by mistake. Just ignore it. Sorry!

Oh, dear. There is now also a community called read_hp, which will be starting their own readdown on March 12. They were in the LJ spotlight today, so they have over 1500 members already. I wonder if it won't descend into chaos with that many people, though? I guess it depends on how many of them are active posters.

Yes, I definitely wonder how long it will take that community to become utter chaos with all of the people that have joined.
