Remember Changes to Top 5 This Year!

As we discussed in January's closing post, Top 5 is going through some changes this year. We have expanded our Halloween session to a 10 day period which will run from October 24 to November 2.

As in the past, this Halloween session will be open for Classic Recs. So we hope you'll share your favorite fics, vids, graphics, anything and everything fandom has produced in all the Whedon fandoms. Content from all time periods before 2018 are eligible for posting and, as always, crossover content is A-OK.

But there's more! As this is the last year in which we'll run a separate (and abbreviated) 2018 session in January, we're going to have a new event -- FlashForward Weekend. On October 27 and 28, we'd like to encourage you to post your 2018 recs. We realize that the year won't be quite over yet but we think there should be plenty of fan creations to choose from in the first 10 months, and you can always add additional recs later in January or during 2019's session.

Do start preparing some separate lists as we'd like to see how much interest there continues to be for sharing current recs.

Spreading Out

As with last year, Classic Recs is running on both LiveJournal and Dreamwidth. Post at whichever you wish, although there's no need to duplicate your posts on both sites since they'll be joined together once our session closes.

Based on suggestions made in January, we now have a Top 5 account on Tumblr to remind everyone that we'll be going live. We are also planning a special activity there unique to the site so if you use Tumblr, add us to your feed!

Lastly for those who are trying out Pillowfort, we have opened a Top 5 community there to see how much interest there is in a recs event. If you're looking for communities to join, add us!

Do let petzipellepingo and me know here in comments if you have any questions.
