Community Rec Post


Come rec your favorite DW communities! For those of us who are either new to DW or looking around for more comms to join, let us know you're out there and awesome. Admins/mods, go ahead and pimp your stuff!

I've divided it up onto categories so people can more easily find what they like:

Fandom
Fandom: General
Fandom: Video Games
Fandom: Movies
Fandom: TV
Fandom: Books
Fandom: Animanga
Fandom: Western Comics
Fandom: Webcomics
Fandom: Celebrities/RPF
Fandom: Music
Fandom: Specific Genre
Fandom: Roleplay (original character RP goes here, too - "RP" as the fandom)

Other-Than-Fandom
OTF: General
OTF: Layouts, Icons, Etc
OTF: Writing & Art

For example:
[community profile] lj_refugees would go in "OTF: General."
[community profile] roleplaysecrets would go in "Fandom: Roleplay."
[community profile] science_fiction would go in "Fandom: Specific Genre."
[community profile] fanlore would go in "Fandom: General."
Comms about Game of Thrones/ASOIAF could go in both "Fandom: Books" and "Fandom: TV."
Comms about Zutara would go in TV; Sansan would go in Books and TV like GoT/ASOIAF.


Copy/edit/paste the text in the box below into the appropriate thread! (Optional, but some sort of description would help.)


(Note: This is communities only. There will be a friending meme for personal LJs on Friday!)

Community: [community profile] ebooks
What's it for? Talking about e-books, e-readers, DRM, etc.
Why's it awesome? Many members are fans, and it's not unusual to discuss things like, "How do I get this fanfic on to my e-reader?"/etc. The tags are really well-done, so if you've recently gotten an e-reader or whatever, I recommend poking around!

fitness/weightloss

[personal profile] innatizzy 2012-05-30 11:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Community: [community profile] eat_play_geek
What's it for? Nerds and geeks to get together and talk about fitness and weightloss.
Other comments: I created it because a lot of the fitness comms I was going to I just didn't feel like I fit in. My motivations were things like the zombie apocalypse and movies and video games, and my rewards were buying a video game or comic books or something. So I decided to create a community where I could talk about nerdastic topics and not feel like a weirdo. Honestly, I started it quite awhile ago and never really got it off the ground, but would love if people joined and had fun! Mostly it's just been me posting random things like weight/fitness related fandom-secrets.

Community: [community profile] holiday_wishes
What's it for? It's the same as the [livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes comm on LJ. Make a list of ten wishes and see if you can grant other people's wishes. It could really do with more activity come October/November when the LJ comm starts up.
