I love craighnaduhnbut it has become increasingly difficult to post so I made outlander_watch. If you're an Oultander fan please join.

Looks like you've worked very hard to set this up. :) I have an outlander fanfic community called outlander_fans and we'd be glad to link to you if you'll do the same. :)

What made you decide to create a new comm? I've never had trouble posting in craighnaduhn, but you seem to have, and it sounds like you have a little different feel in mind.

Yes, I did work hard.

I will definately link to outlander_fans!

I have. Not that it is the rules but every once in a while it tells me I can't because of some quota or something. It's annoying to me that people can't post without it being moderated anyway. I mean I see the need of it but I figure if they are breaking rules you can always delete the post after the fact... plus I'm thinking I like the idea of a group that is a little more relaxed. Not so rigid.

Sorry about the rant... I have strong feels about that.

I've noticed the same thing, and that's why I started outlandishicons -- just for that reason. In fact, I tried posting at craighnaduhn the other night, asking a question about a book - it still has not been posted. If they're going to moderate all the posts, they should at least be on top of it! At this rate, the site is going to go down the tubes because there will be no posts.

I like the fact you have DG's excerpts on your new site, it will be a good clearing house for them, but I don't feel comfortable at the idea of Outlander fanfiction esp. since DG really dislikes that and I can't imagine anything being nearly as good as DG's writing!

Good luck with your new site!

Yeah I was thinking about the fics thing. I don't mind people sharing. I too know DG doesn't really like the fics althought I found a few stories that aren't as good but are almost. I just don't want to restrict the fans... there isn't usually a lot of that anyway.

Does this mean you won't join?

Does this mean you won't join?

Yeah, if you didn't have the fics I would, but I really feel strongly about it, she really does not condone it, and like I said before, it makes me feel uncomfortable and I'd rather disassociate myself from anything like that. I don't even want to get a glimpse of them! LOL But, I'll check in from time to time to see the excerpts!

I thought about it a bit more and I see your point so I did remove that we have fan fics. Just so you know. Their is a group for that. They can always go there.
Juliejulielu on August 14th, 2007 11:58 pm (UTC)
Great, I just joined and I'll add a link at outlandishicons.

I already put you into communities section and in the profile. Cause you know I'm a fan!
Diane: cute!unaspenser on August 15th, 2007 02:48 pm (UTC)
Fun. We'll link to you too etc. etc.

I know what you mean about craighnaduhn and I'm sure your comm will be a good addition.

I also am conflicted about the fics, and if I had it to do over I probably wouldn't start the comm knowing what I know now, but, well, there it is.

I'm not against fics but I decided to leave that to your group. I get that some fans really want to respect DG's stand on it and I tend to want to also. But at the same time, I think fan fics are a form or flattery. Sometimes you just want to write something about characters you love whether it be from a different angle or whatever. So to each their own.

For Outlander Watch though I think keeping it to discussion about the books, sharing found information, chatting about things regarding Outlander and maybe even occasionally sharing graphics is just fine. Like I said we'll leave the fics over at you group. *hug*
