I'm creating a DW community ([community profile] thecybertronian ) to transfer over there due to the new privacy agreement (that you HAD to accept even though they had a not now option).

I was also thinking of having a weekly discussion post over there for fandom things related to Transformers. Here's hoping LJ will let me import to DW.

Also, editors, please PM me at [personal profile] ravynstoneabbey for invites to the new comm.

Completely my fault, dearhearts, for getting sucked into real life (cheatsheet: I'm trying to move house and get the munchkin ready for school all within the same month. Add in some hiccups with LJ in the past two weeks, and it has made things fun.)

So instead of the post being on the 11th (we ought to keep to the tradition of being late, lol), going to push the timetable back a bit, but we will have a special post on the 11th with suggestions welcome on the topic.

Nominations are still open HERE. Date has been changed to the 15th. Please feel free to share this with everybody who would be interested.

Doubling up on my computer business, loves. :D

1. An Art Editor position is open. Potential editors please email me @ alexandrine@ravynstoneabbey or comment to this post. You will be responsible for checking dA and LJ watch lists and producing the newsletter in rotation with [livejournal.com profile] huntingospray. [livejournal.com profile] naggingfishwife has some real life obligations that require her attention, so her slot is open. I will provide a notes and template file.

2. The Recent Unpleasantness. This is a newsletter, not a request forum. The only comments that are appropriate are additions to or omissions from the newsletter.

I am very happy to announce that [livejournal.com profile] kinrazza has agreed to become the new meta editor of [livejournal.com profile] thecybertronian, and [livejournal.com profile] huntingospray has volunteered to become co-Art editor with [livejournal.com profile] n_f_w!

The Cybertronian is in need of a second art editor to alternate with [profile] n_f_w

Responsibilities will include: gathering links from the LJ watch list and the dA watch list and compiling the links into a formatted post, with the template being provided.  Posts should ideally be done by midnight local time or a marker post posted since real life does have a nasty habit of getting in the way of fun Internet times.

Estimated time spent: 10-15 minutes daily collecting links, 1-2 hours weekly to compile the post. [[profile] n_f_w, feel free to tell me if the estimate is wrong]

Please email me @ ravynstone.abbey@gmail.com or comment in the post.

I will be changing the schedule of the Art/Meta Issue to every other week, which means the next issue of the Art/Meta issue will be December 26.
ravynstoneabbey: (Bumblebee = Hero)
I'm combining this week's and next week's issues of the Art & Meta issue of The Cybertronian, due to some real life things I need to take care of this week, like finishing up my NaNo novel and other matters. Delilah, number your issue #30. Also, #30 will be the end of the first volume of the Cybertronian, and mine will be the beginning of the second volume.

Will be delayed due to some obligations in the morning requiring your intrepid editor to go to bed early.  Look for a combined issue on Friday!

Erm.  Sorry about missing Friday and today.  I had things that I needed to take care of in real life, plus some writing.

Wednesday will be Issue #5.  It will have art, discussion and icons from the time I started doing Issue #4 to whenever I start #5.  Friday will be #6 with Fic to to that day, so be prepared for a long newsletter. 

Basically The Cybertronian is getting a small format change.  Twice a week, with Fridays being fic for an entire week, organized by ratings.  So help me out y'all with the ratings (I use the FF.net version from K to MA.  MA=NC-17/X, M=R, T=PG13, K+=PG and K=G)  Thank you! 
Wednesday will be art, icons, and news. 

I know y'all use this as a way to navigate the quantity of goodies and I'm really sorry about not having the time this weekend to keep up with things.

The one-stop place for all your Transformers needs, from G1 to the 2007 Movie and beyond.  Covering toys to comics with fic, art, icons, graphics and discussion rounding everything out.  I'll be poking into the TF forums, the growing base of TF communities on LJ and perusing artists at dA, Paper Demon  and other art sites.  I will also be using digg, del.icio.us and other websites to gather interesting things.

I won't try to cover everything TF related as quite frankly that would be a huge task for one person. 

I would like to thank all those who've shown interest by asking to join.  Posting will only be done by a mod and every post will be public, so watch the comm for the updates.

I plan to post weekly on Wednesdays so this coming Wednesday, August 15 will be Issue #1 covering from the 8th to the an hour or so before each posting.  Tags will be used with a tag for each issue, and volume number.  I'm planning four volumes in a year of around 26 issues in each volume. 

Email the editor at the.cybertronian@gmail.com with news and anything that I may have missed.  The only rule for posts if it is f-locked or otherwise members-only, I will not cover it.  I also will not mention any drama, unless it is related to LJ being stupid again.  Newsletters are not for wank.
