As Mark Twain once said, "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." The CLAMP fandom newsletter is going to be revived. Thanks to quietisrafel
for volunteering to become a co-editor for the CFN, we've decided to re-open, with an all new format. The CFN will consist of fandom updates, posted in newsletter format, several times a week. Editors will utilize clampwatch
to keep track of fandom ongoings and post issues. We will also have a bi-monthly (once every two months) supplement, that is similar to a fan magazine. That will contain fic reviews, articles, and other bits of CLAMP meta, which everyone is encouraged to submit entries for. Additionally, CFN will become public (non f-locked), so that it is more accessible to CLAMP fans.
To that end, I'd be interested in having one or two more co-editors help with the fandom updates, which should be posted approximately once every two days. I'll contact you with more details, once you've submitted an application.( ApplicationCollapse )
Our reopening will be in June, and the tentative starting date is June 3rd.
The userinfo will be undergoing an overhaul, as will the directory system. I plan to e-mail all ljers who have kindly compiled a directory, to ask if they'd be able to maintain those directories. All other directories will be up for grabs, with more information forthcoming in the next post.
Please comment with any ideas or suggestions.
