(I posted a similar version of this entry in chomalfoyfics here
. The main differences here are Dreamwidth-specific, but most people should be able to get the idea without reading both posts.)
I'm implementing some changes in various places online that'll influence this community. Since this is one of the first mod posts of this kind I've done in firmament
, I'll note that I like to post whenever I make changes, whether it's a policy change, a layout change, or something else. These in particular are a major policy change and a change to my main Dreamwidth account.
1. Trigger warnings
: It came to my attention
that the warnings I use for content may not be extensive enough for readers who have triggers. As such, all new stories will have a trigger warning at the bottom of the post behind a cut and scrambled with rot13
. I'm going to go through all my stories in the next few weeks and add the warnings as well, and those should be in place by July 2009, although I'll post if I don't manage it. (I have to reread all my stories in order to make sure I don't miss anything.) I've edited the welcome and disclaimers post
to reflect the new addition.Edit (4/12/10):
I still intend to warn as best I can, but it's occurred to me that I have not been perfect with my system even after implementation. I can't guarantee that all stories are properly marked for major triggers.
If there are any questions, I encourage readers to comment, send me a private message, or email me (gorgeousnerd at gmail dot com).
An example of this can be found in "The Links That Bind
". Since this is also my most disturbing story online, and I'll understand if people want to avoid it, this is what the warning looks like: Ibzvgvat, rzbgvbany gbegher, rkgerzr culfvpny gbegher, frirerq svatref, rkprffvir oybbq, nyyhfvbaf gb puvyq zheqre naq gbegher (translate
2. Main Dreamwidth
: In an attempt to keep my fandom writing and my original writing more separate, I'm now posting all progress reports on my fanfiction to gorgeousnerd
. I made some changes on cho_malfoy
that reflect this, but this community's mostly free of that. I did change some of the links on the profile to link to this
list of my projects. It's a little more extensive than the main list
, so it's fun to keep track of for anyone who likes behind-the-scenes notes.
Beyond that, all I have to say is that more stories are coming. At least one is being posted Monday or Tuesday, and I have a second story that is going to be a Dreamwidth-first post if I can get it done. More later!
