i really need more hobbies

djianna posts here on current fannish events. You know, now looking at everything she listed that happened just recently--is it just me or is a lot happening all at once?

I'm thinking about the otw_news project a lot, to be honest. In a positive, oh awesome way. I pulled my fic from when they instituted the anti-NC-17 policy. I always hated the interface anyway, and I still hate the multi-chapter feature (I like fic in a single long file whenever possible), but I appreciate the sheer hugeness of it, the ambition that set it up, the fact it's still here and still functioning and still *working* pretty damn well. The fact that it's massive and bandwidth sucking and has a variety you can't get anywhere else--hell, some of those categories you literally cannot find *anywhere else on the net*.

One of the bigger gripes in any fandom is the lack of a central archive if there isn't one, or an underused one. The format of it can be a problem as well. The Smallville Slash Archive is still my favorite in the sheer simplicity of using it, of reading in it, though I'd wish for more search capabilities, that's why we have google and the ability to delineate to a specific website for searching.

So this one project. It's catching my imagination maybe, or just my sense of organization is appeased, I'm not sure. I just want it a lot.

I could learn to program. *thoughtful*

ETA - In case I was not clear--join the community and start brainstorming. This is--this is something that we can all be a part of, help form and shape into something that will last and perhaps even go on after us. I do believe it can be just as awesome as it's being envisioned.
