The bonus of being the comm admin, is I can make these completely off topic posts in hopes of reaching more people.

I've been a member of an online forum for football fans for over a year, and like many places on the internet (LJ included), we're suffering from a lack of participation. Our image host recently died, and our admins are wondering if they should even bother putting up the nice banners and backgrounds again, or just close the forum altogether.

So if you like football and want a nice place to chat, 'watch' matches together, look at pics of all the guys, etc., please stop by TCC and join up. But please, please participate.

And don't feel put out if your team doesn't have it's own board, there are a few generalized boards and areas where you can start a thread for your team.

Just in time for the release of First Lord's Fury featuring some of the map art from [livejournal.com profile] priscellie's amazing map. Includes art by UK cover artist Lee Gibbons.

I didn't want to use Flexible Squares, but my sources for free layouts were not cooperating by giving me something simple yet nice to use with the banner. I may change the layout itself if I come across one, but the colours and the banner aren't going anywhere.

Amazon.com has released cover art for the final book! Click here to see it! Once I get my hands on a higher quality version, I will edit the banner for the comm, and make an icon or two.

My comment on the cover: Tavi's looking very mid-30s or older for someone who wouldn't even be legal to drink in the States. I noticed this with the last cover, but even more so now. Positively middle-aged.

Go forth and squee over the pretty picture. Oh, and jot down November 24th on your calendars as the day you will descend on your local book seller to procure your copy.

I've gone through and reconfigured our tagging system. I'm hoping it's more user friendly and easier to use. Both as a search tool and to add to your posts.

Please use the tags provided on all your posts. Thanks.

LJ dying?

Well, my friends list has exploded with posts about LJ going under and backing everything up and all that.

I do not plan on backing up the community, but if there's interest (as I think I've mentioned previously), I WILL start a comm over on InsaneJournal for us. Even if you think it's a good idea for me to just create the comm to hold the name if something happens and we all have to migrate, just let me know.

As of this point, I'm not too worried...I just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

The title for book six was posted on Jim's site today, and as many of us have guessed, or speculated, the title is:

First Lord's Fury

It is due out December 2009. I updated the user info, and I'm off to add it to the interest list.

New layout

Ok, the new layout is up. I'm 85% pleased with how the banner turned out, and 40% pleased with the layout itself, so I may go hunting for a layout that I can plop the banner on that will hopefully look better than this one. :)

But for now, it's up, and I believe the links and such are much easier to read than they were with the last layout. Mucho thanks to [livejournal.com profile] spark_force and [livejournal.com profile] priscellie for getting me the cover art as quickly as you did.

ETA - I also updated the interest list. I'll be adding more, but it requires a re-read, and my copy of FoC is currently elsewhere. I should be getting it back soon.

Ok everyone, scour your hard-drives! Due to my purchasing of a new computer, my other two are in various stages of not-togetherness, and I am currently unable to dig through my Jim Butcher folder and get what I need on my own. Google has become the bane of my existence, so I fall upon your mercy.

What I need: Cover art from all 5 books. Decent size. In an ideal world, I'd like the art for all of them to be the same size. (With title/author listed is perfectly fine).

What I need them for: To revamp the comm and make it all pretty (as much as I like the stripes).

If you can help, let me know, and I'll give you my e-mail address so you can send them to me.

Thanks in advance.

[livejournal.com profile] spark_force saved the day! I will attempt to make the new banner tonight and get things changed around this coming week.

A lot of people have been abandoning LJ for Insane Journal where fandom is concerned. I do have a journal there just in case things here get really out of hand. I was wondering though if I should open up a comm over there too.

We now know the title and tentative release date for Book 5. My information comes from Amazon.com, as I'm no longer active over on the Jim Butcher forums.

The new banner is up, though I'm not sure I really like it. I also re-did the community info and updated the interests a bit.

Hope everyone likes it.

I've said for a while that I wanted to change the 10 questions, especially due to happenings in the Cursor's Fury.

So this is where I call for help. Please, comment with suggestions. :)

The questions I'd like to keep:
Why did you start reading the Codex Alera series?
Who is your favourite character?
If you had a fury, what element do you believe it would be?
If you were sent to Alera, and could take one item from our world with you, what would it be?
Please explain your lj name.

So that means I'll need 5 new questions. Once we've got a bunch of suggestions, I'll toss up a poll, and we can vote for our 5 favourites.
