As you may have noticed, from time to time LiveJournal comes under a Denial Of Service attack from outside forces. That has led me to crate a Facebook group, so that if LJ goes down on a Thursday night, for example, we still have a place to go and chat.

Membership is open - https://www.facebook.com/groups/intheafter/.

First - [livejournal.com profile] athebeach_13 - if you're reading this, phone home, we haven't heard from you in a while!

This community hasn't had consistent screencaps in quite a while. I'm asking for volunteers to post Cristina/Owen screencaps from each episode. I know you have them, they're all over Tumblr. ;-)

I'm not sure how this will work, but I'm volunteering to set up a file sharing account somewhere, like Mediafire, so that we aren't reliant on one person's server space. I am very open to suggestions on which one to use. :-)

I'm also open to paying for an account, and passing the Paypal hat to cover ongoing expenses. I have all of the group screencaps downloaded, and I can zip them up and upload them, once I establish where.

If someone is willing to screencap the episodes as they appear on iTunes, so we get them logo free, the Paypal hat can be used to reimburse.

Those are my thoughts, let my know what you think!

Buddy TV recently released their "100 Sexiest Women on TV in 2010" and "100 Sexiest Men on TV in 2010" lists. I guess PTSD doesn't look good on women, because they failed to include Sandra Oh. I know. Congratulations anyways to Chyler Leigh and Jessica Capshaw on making the list.

However, tortured with PTSD is apparently hot on a man, because Kevin McKidd came in at #69.

(Justin Chambers and Jesse Williams also made the list).

One more item - if you need a moderator's help over the next week or so, please contact [livejournal.com profile] coforever, [livejournal.com profile] crazyflirtca, or [livejournal.com profile] far_to_nowhere, as I'm having surgery today (December 14) and will be having sweet drug-induced dreams of on-call room scenes (hopefully).

* In case you weren't aware of this, the new episode airing this Thursday is the last one before the dreaded holiday hiatus. The next new one will be in January, 2011.

* This does not mean that fandom goes on hiatus. Continue to share your fanfiction, fanmixes, videos, icons, articles, etc! When you're not enjoying the season in whichever manner you choose, of course.

* I'm doing my best to crank out another captionization before December 14.

* For those who asked to know, my surgery will be on December 14. I'm getting a new neck for Christmas! :-)

* The hat will not be passed this year for a paid account for [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after, it's been taken care of. Remain awesome.

Please welcome [livejournal.com profile] coforever and [livejournal.com profile] crazyflirtca to the moderating team. They have graciously agreed to step in and help out, as I will have to temporarily step back from moderating duties at some point in the near future.

This has nothing to do with fandom drama or my ongoing disgust that Teddy is still on the show. The reason I will temporarily step back from moderating duties is details under cut... )

Behind the scenes, [livejournal.com profile] far_to_nowhere is cutting back on moderator stuff, but will continue to help approve posts and make gorgeous layouts from time to time. She was one of the founders of [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after and I thank her for everything that she has done for us.

[livejournal.com profile] athebeach_13 has graciously agreed to share her gorgeous Cristina/Owen screencaps with [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after members. Conveniently found through the screencaptures tag. Remember, you have to be logged into LJ in order to see these entries. And it only takes a few seconds to leave a "thank you" comment!

She will also host the Season 5 and 6 caps, we will let you know when that is all set up.

If you have any suggestions or questions about [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after, please let us know!

There is plenty of room in Round Two starting on June 1. The overall theme is PAIRS. Sorry, Cristina/Owen and Cristina/Meredith are taken, but there are other opportunities. *cough*bromance*cough*

As I posted last night, Canadians who can watch ATV/CTV Halifax will be able to see the season finale two hours earlier than the rest of North America tonight. I'm one of them - and I've gotten some requests to share spoilers, in a way that will not spoil it for those who want to watch it live without spoilers.

What I'm suggesting is a Canadian spoiler post, separate from the normal episode discussion post. I'll mark it clearly and put the spoilers in comments, so if you don't want to know, don't click.

You have one day left to submit an entry in the Caption This - Bromance Edition contest.

And, um - I imagine it is a lot of fun to work with Kevin McKidd, but um, let's not make assumptions about how much fun because there are lines that can be crossed when it comes to our actors, even in jest. *blush*

Here at [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after, we work very hard to keep our community user friendly, provide perks that none of the other communities offer and are constantly thinking of new and amazing ways to be better than the other fandom communities.

We like to think we do a pretty good job, but we know that things can always be better.

Like, for instance, these ads that are all over the community. With a paid account, we could get rid of them. With extra money, we could dedicate a server for [livejournal.com profile] ghmari to upload our clips to make them available without expiration.

Believe it or not, money and resources already come out of pocket to go to our community. The awesome screencaps provided by [livejournal.com profile] far_to_nowhere are taken from HD episodes that she purchases solely to give us those screencaps. The server she uploads them to is also paid for out of pocket.

So we ask, this holiday season here at [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after, that you might consider giving a little bit to the community to help spruce it up, keep it running beautifully and improve a few things.

How can you donate?

We've established an PayPal account to help pay for our expenses. You'll need an account of your own and you merely make your donation to in.the.after@gmail.com - any amount is helpful, two dollars or twenty. One year of a paid journal subscription currently sits at $19.95 USD. This would clean up the ads from the community and give us more freedom with the design itself. The server at this point costs $7 a month. Episodes are $3.99 a piece (I believe). Any amount would make a difference.

So as you finish up your Christmas shopping, consider putting [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after on your Christmas list. :)

Thanks for being an awesome community guys! We appreciate all of your contributions.

So I forgot to add a date to the voting post on the "Caption This" contest. Sorry!! You have until 11 pm MDT tonight to vote. Go vote!
[identity profile] angelamermaid.livejournal.com

Yeah, it's that time again. Tomorrow's new episode is going to be the last new episode of 2009. The air date of 6-10 in 2010 has not been announced.

Fear not, because we mods have activities and contests planned for the break. Icon making and "Caption this" contests, for starters.

And, [livejournal.com profile] nursebadass has challenged me to another fic battle. :-)

Stay tuned for more details!

[livejournal.com profile] nursebadass wrote out an excellent post on embedding YouTube videos. Complete with graphics. If you have more questions, please ask. :-)

I (in the carnation of [livejournal.com profile] allthingsyang and [livejournal.com profile] nursebadass) am taking a small hiatus from the community as a contributor. I will continue to moderate posts and adjust tags, etc- but I need a breather. So I'm pulling a Preston Burke- I'm taking my lucky scrub cap, my trumpet and all of my CDs and disappearing.

The only difference is that I'll hopefully be back.

Thanks for being a good great community.

Hey there now! :-)

This is a reminder about some of our posting guidelines.

There are three guidelines I want to bring up:

  1. Not every fanfiction needs to strictly be Cristina/Owen and have a happy ending for Cristina and Owen as a couple.

    • The fanfiction needs to be Cristina and/or Owen-centric for sure. There needs to be some of both characters in it - no strictly Cristina/Burke stories, no strictly Owen/Beth stories - [livejournal.com profile] ga_fanfic is more appropriate for those kinds of stories.

  2. Fanfiction will not be deleted because it is deemed to be a bad idea or poorly executed by some posters/readers.

    • I would not want to be a part of a community where stories are rejected purely because some people are going to hate them. The fact is, there's not one author in this community that is universally beloved. Some people think there are too many stories of an adult nature. Some people think there aren't enough stories of an adult nature. Not everyone likes my stuff, and I'm cool with that.

  3. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. This applies to all fan works. Fanfiction, fanvideos, fanmixes, and fanart. There is no requirement to comment on work.

Rest behind a cut because I get wordy when I'm on a roll )

Whenever you're posting, please make sure to properly tag your entries. I just spent 30 minutes going back through entries and tagging/re-tagging them. If you're confused on how to tag your entry, please see this post.

Tags are to help organize the community and make it more user friendly for our members.

Thanks for being a great community guys. :) It's shaping up to be a good season.

Per this post, when posting videos to YouTube, you must embed your video. For those of you that find this to be a difficult task, I have provided instructions on how to post a video.

Instructions under the cut. )
