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: 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)

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!)

OTF: Layouts, Icons, Etc

Community: [site community profile] dreamscapes and [community profile] dreamwidthlayouts
What's it for? Layouts! The first is for submissions to become new site styles; the second is more general, and takes things that wouldn't meet the standard for official styles. (These aren't necessarily quality standards! Fixed-with layouts, for instance, aren't made official because of accessibility reasons.)
Why's it awesome? DW's style system is kind of a pain to wrangle. Here you can find gorgeous layouts that other people have already wrangled for you.
Other comments: If you have a layout in progress and need advice or feedback, see [community profile] style_system.

Community: [community profile] smallbatchicons
What's it for? Posting icons in groups of five or fewer.
Why's it awesome? Pretties!

Community: [community profile] dreamcodes
What's it for? Sharing profile codes, rp muselists and cr charts, or indeed any other kind of coding!
Why's it awesome? Dreamwidth and LJ aren't completely compatible in terms of what html and css can be used in posts and on profiles (especially profiles). So a code built for LJ might not work for DW - but [community profile] dreamcodes lets you find codes that you know will definitely work on DW.

Community: [community profile] nexticon
What's it for? Pass-it-on icontest.
Why's it awesome? Inspiration (/motivation/ideas) for icon-making and getting to playing off others!
