Community Maintainer Wishlist

In addition to the current ability to make the whole community moderated (moderator must approve post before it is posted by all users unless they have been explicitly granted the ability to post straight through) I would like the ability to, in a largely unmoderated community, selectively turn on moderation for certain (known to be problematical) users.

One could easily get around this, but ... eh. It's a thing, you know?

Carrot on a stick

I rewarded myself for nanowrimo: before November began, on the night of the eclipse, I bought myself Kushiel's Avatar. I restrained myself from reading it for the entire month of November. Now I've read it.

I still think the summary "In which a courtesan kicks much ass," is appropriate. othercat pointed out that said courtesan is likely a canon Sue, and she does not much like canon Sues; this is why she and the series have not encountered much of each other.

Cannon fodder Sues, on the other hand, might be interesting. What if one took Canon Sues from every fandom with Canon Sues in, and wrote one big meta-fic with them just dying in the name of a reasonably good cause?

Next up on my reading list: the Game Document. 18 pages, roughly, of Game Writeup, written by a man sorely afflicted with CIS Disease (which is a native-language override necessary for programming that involves a certain level of blithe disregard for proper spelling and usage in the original native language of the programmer). Ordinarily, the Grammar Bitch would be twitching. Given that the man in question is my bondmate, however, the Grammar Bitch plans to sit back, sip a cup of herbal tea, roll a will save against kissing the bondmate the next time we see each other, and not die of the horror.

I feel dreadfully guilty about having not read it already, but I know I could not have properly read it during November, and I did need some time to chill out after the ordeal and get my brain back, so reading a good book to reset before going into the document was a necessary thing as well.

I am encouraged that he is sharing this thing with me.
