SSR Confidential is happening again this year - I think I forgot to post a notice here, but tag set nominations are open through March 12th. Here's a text list of all nominated characters and relationships currently in the tag set. Signups will open on *quickly checks* March 15.

[personal profile] muccamukk is hosting a sprint of an AC episode rewatch, starting a couple of days ago and ending in early April, to fit in all the episodes with time left to write. Here's the rewatch schedule and the rewatch tag for episode discussion posts.

(I posted a couple of comments over there today before realizing fairly quickly that I was going to have to nope out. I kinda already suspected this was a show that's too close to my heart for me to be able to dissect its flaws without ending up in a downward misery spiral, and yepppp. It's no one's fault and nothing to do with the discussion, it's just that my mode on this show is very firmly set to "roll around in squee" and not "critically analyze". Anyway, it looked like the discussion was going well and had raised lots of interesting points, so I hope people enjoy it!)

On other topics, I have had a Tumblr post I made in support of lurkers blow up over the last couple of days - here's a reblog with some of my additional comments. It went from under 100 notes two days ago to around 1900 and still climbing. I'm drowning in notes! They're eating all my other notes! I wish it was possible to turn off notes on just one post on Tumblr, but I think you have to do it globally.

In spite of everything I dislike about Facebook, it has two features I really wish Tumblr would implement: the ability to hide just one specific post without unfollowing a person, and the above-mentioned ability to turn notifications on or off on a post-by-post basis.

This entry is also posted at with comment count unavailable comments.
As someone who goes through phases of commenting and lurking, I am fully in favour of lurkers!! Not everyone has the mental energy or the time to comment on every single thing they read, watch or look at!!

Glad you're running SSR Confidential again!! I'm not sure if I'm participating this year due to RL, but will see nearer the sign up time.
Agreed on lurking! There are tons of reasons why people don't comment on things, and I don't think that anyone should be pressured to do it.

Would love to have you if you can, but I completely understand if you can't!
