Hello everyone. I know it's been quite some time since I've last made a post here, but this is your friendly neighborhood moderator, [livejournal.com profile] star54kar.

As some of you may or may not have noticed, over the course of the past few months this community has frequently come under the attack of Spammers posting links to various advertisements. While I have been faithfully banning the poster and deleting and reporting each occurrence as spam to Livejournal as soon as I became aware of each inappropriate post, I have found that over the past few weeks this is doing nothing to dissuade those responsible from setting up new accounts and posting the exact same thing all over again.

Because the frequency of these spam attacks appear to be getting consistently worse, despite my prompt action in each occurrence, I have made the decision to put this community on moderated membership status in an attempt to protect the community from these repeated attacks.

This action has been taken in the hope of making our community less attractive to those responsible for the spam attacks, with as little inconvenience to our posting members as possible. It is my hope that this will not have to be a permanent change, but I'm going to try this for a while and see how things go.

If any of you have any questions about this change please feel free to ask away. I'll be happy to answer them and I promise to make you aware of any further changes if they occur.

Sincerely,
[livejournal.com profile] star54kar

Hello everyone!

It's been a while since I've posted a note, and I just wanted to go over a few things:)

First of all, I'm very proud to report that our community continues to thrive and to grow! I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of the new members who have joined us over the last couple of months and to thank all of our wonderful gen fic authors who have contributed their work for our enjoyment.

I'd also like to go over an important matter of business. I have noticed that an increasingly large number of our contributing authors have not been properly tagging their work when they post to the community. The tags are an invaluable organizational tool in terms of helping the readers of this community find stories to read that suit their interests as well as giving the authors who post here an opportunity to find more exposure to some of their less recent work.

Now for a while, I used to simply go in and add the appropriate tags to entries that the author neglected to tag. I'm afraid that while that system worked when our community was small, with the growth of our community it has simply become unrealistic for me to go in and tag the work of everyone who has been neglecting to do so lately.

As a result I have to ask all of our authors to please be sure to tag your fics when you post to this community. It only takes a moment to do, and will help to keep our community organized. Please tag the important character(s) featured in your story, the appropriate genre(s), and the rating of your fic. Also, if you are submitting a story for one of our challenges, it is extremely important for you to remember to use the appropriate challenge tag as well. If for some reason you need a tag for a character that is not already available, simply let me know and I will be happy to create it for you.

I'd also like to remind members that if you would like to search through the fics of a specific author here at [livejournal.com profile] hp_misfitfics that you can do so by visiting our memories section.

As always, I encourage you all to continue to support the growth of our community. If one of your friends has written a piece of gen fic, please encourage them to post it here. Banners are available to you should you wish to promote our community or any of our Challenges of the Month at any time.

Thank you to all of you for continuing to make [livejournal.com profile] hp_misfitfics such a wonderful community, and I look forward to seeing all of the wonderful gen fic that is still to come!

Sincerely,
[livejournal.com profile] star54kar

Hey everyone!

It has been a while since I've made one of these official announcements here at [livejournal.com profile] hp_misfitfics, as I generally do most of my modly work behind the scenes, but I wanted to let you know about a couple of things as well as to share some new ideas that I have for the community.

First and foremost, I am very proud to announce our affiliation with the new Harry Potter rare pairs community, [livejournal.com profile] variety_is! I hope that you will all take a moment to check them out and enjoy the variety of rare pairings that are featured there.

I am also considering beginning to host a monthly challenge here at [livejournal.com profile] hp_misfitfics. It will be very low pressure, there will be no sign-ups, and entries for past challenges will always be welcome and accepted. The theme of the challenge will vary, sometimes it might be a specific character, and sometimes it will be a prompt of some kind. The whole idea is to simply create some inspiration for our authors to create some new gen fic to share with our community.

Now another thing that I have been considering is to begin posting a monthly digest of the Gen fic that has been posted here on [livejournal.com profile] hp_misfitfics. I will also include any pieces of Harry Potter gen fic that has not been posted to our community, that I stumble across that I think is utterly fantastic. The monthly digest will also feature an older story or two, and any relevent news related to this community or to our new affiliate, [livejournal.com profile] variety_is.

I hope that you will please take a moment to fill out the following polls, and/or leave any feedback about your feelings on the ideas I've just shared as I would very much like to know what you all think.


[Poll #1336239]


[Poll #1336240]

Finally, I just want to say how excited I am by how much our little community has grown and thrived since we began back in 2007! I hope that you all will continue to post and encourage your friends to share their gen fic here with us. I look forward to seeing all of the fantastic work that is yet to come!

Welcome new members!!!!


I am so beyond excited! [livejournal.com profile] hp_misfitfics appears to actually be taking off!!!

In just one week of operation we now have twenty members and twenty-four watchers! There have been ten stories posted and seven of them were posted by authors other than myself! I can't tell you how happy that has made me, and I encourage you all to keep it up:)


In terms of community promotion things seem to be going very well thus far. I have posted an announcement of Misfits opening on [livejournal.com profile] hp_directory, and we were graciously mentioned on yesterday's newsletter at [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_today. Do any of our wonderful new members know of any other newsletter communities I can get the word out to?

I also have to give huge hugs and thank yous to [livejournal.com profile] earth_dragon, [livejournal.com profile] knic26, and [livejournal.com profile] oncelikeshari for the wonderful pimps!

Also an extra special thank you goes to [livejournal.com profile] hedwigs_bane who not only pimped the community on his own journal, but also on [livejournal.com profile] hrroundrobin, and [livejournal.com profile] bestmeatsawards!


In terms of organization, I'm striving to make searching for fics on [livejournal.com profile] hp_misfitfics as easy as possible. The memory feature will be used as an author directory so that you can find all the stories submitted to the site by a specific author. The tags are currently organized by genre and rating, and I have been considering also organizing it by characters.


I welcome and encourage you to submit any ideas you might have to make the community better in the comments. Thank you, all of you for joining, watching, and supporting this little idea of mine. You have made me extremely happy:)

Sincerely,

Welcome to this little corner of the universe, dedicated to giving poor, neglected Harry Potter Gen fic the attention and readership it deserves.

Are you primarily a ship writer, but suddenly find yourself writing a non pairing specific piece and you don't have a community to share it with?

Would you like to maintain your friends locked journal, but still wish for your writing to find readership beyond the confines of your flist?

Well search no more!

All types of Harry Potter Gen Fic are welcome here. Character based pieces, plot or action based pieces, and friendship pieces are all appreciated and encouraged.


What do you mean by Gen Fic?


For the purposes of this community a Gen Fic is defined as any kind of fan fiction in which action and primary focus of the piece does not center around a romantic relationship.

Now this does not mean that a romantic relationship can't be present in your fiction. For example, Ron and Hermione can be a couple in a piece as long as their relationship is not the primary focus, and the action does not center around them getting together, being together, breaking up, or has one of them dwelling on unrequited feelings for the other.

The Mod reserves the right to refuse posts that do not fit our definition of a Gen Fic. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact [livejournal.com profile] star54kar.

Rules:

1. Fiction can be posted about any of the characters in any of the 7 Harry Potter Novels.

2. All genres of gen fiction are welcome and encouraged.

Harry Potter Misfit Fics

Welcome to hp_misfitfics!

Welcome to this little corner of the universe, dedicated to giving poor, neglected Harry Potter Gen fic the attention and readership it deserves.

Are you primarily a ship writer, but suddenly find yourself writing a non pairing specific piece and you don't have a community to share it with?

Would you like to maintain your friends locked journal, but still wish for your writing to find readership beyond the confines of your flist?

Well search no more!

All types of Harry Potter Gen Fic are welcome here. Character based pieces, plot or action based pieces, and friendship pieces are all appreciated and encouraged.

For the purposes of this community a Gen Fic is defined as any kind of fan fiction in which action and primary focus of the piece does not center around a romantic relationship.

The Mod reserves the right to refuse posts that do not fit our definition of a Gen Fic. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact [personal profile] star54kar
