I've now closed the tags and headers polls.

The community consensus on tags was that people would like to see author, genre, and rating tags, and don't seem to care that much about word count, so that's how we're going. I've set up genre and rating tags, which you're welcome to use to tag your posts. I'll add author tags as needed. If you have another genre tag that you'd like to see, please drop a comment here and I'll add it.

In terms of the headers, header #1 was the clear winner. I'll add it to the community layout just as soon as I have time to figure how to modify said layout. (If there's anyone out there who already knows how to do this and enjoys that kind of thing, feel free to volunteer!)

Some John/Cam prompts. )

The community has really expanded since Open Beta began. Welcome to all new members!

We currently have two polls going. The first is for the types of fic/art/vid tags you'd like to see, and the second is for which header you'd like the community to use. I'll leave the polls open until Monday the 11th. Please vote!

Right now author and genre are among the winning preferred tag types. If anyone has specific suggestions for the genre tags they'd like to see, please leave them in the comments of the poll post.

(I've created a bunch of genre tags already, so feel free to tag your own work as you post it. I'll create author tags as needed.)

Thank you to everyone who commented on the last post.

So far, the consensus seems to be that everyone wants to hear about challenges, prompts, and ficathons that might lend themselves to John/Cam, and no one wants to hear about the actors. At least not here. (As a couple of people pointed out, there are lots of other places you can go for that type of news.) Both of those points will go up on the info page, and you should all feel free to start dropping pointers to your favourite (John/Cam-friendly) challenges. I'll do my best to round up some lonely prompts from [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic soon.

As far as tags to, author is a popular one, so I'll start making those as soon as people start posting things. Rating and category tags also came up as possibilities. So in the interests of experimenting with Dreamwidth, here's a poll!

Finally, the very talented [livejournal.com profile] collswan has come up with three possible headers for us and we need to pick one. Which means we need another poll.

Popping my head in to say hello and welcome!

I've been playing around with the community description, and before I carve it into stone, I'm wondering what you all would like to see on this community? Fanfic and art and icons, of course, but what else? Do you want to be notified of challenges and ficathons that are likely to feature John/Cam pairings (like [livejournal.com profile] sg_rarepairings)? Do you want to hear about unclaimed John/Cam prompts at various challenges? Do you want general Ben Browder or Joe Flanigan news? Or would you prefer content to be a little more restricted? And is there anything else you'd like to see in the community profile?

A second issue: tags. What kinds of tags would be useful to you? Right now, I have a bunch of "type" tags: fic, fanmix, video, art, discussion, etc. Would you like any others? Author tags? Word count tags? Rating tags so that you can find the smut quickly?

Finally, if anyone has artistic or layout skills that they feel like using for making the community prettier, please let me know!

(Oh, and if anyone wants to play co-mod, let me know that too.)
