Yuletide  
Does anyone happen to know if there's a spreadsheet or whatever of all the Yuletide fandoms floating around yet? I usually use one that someone else makes to winnow down my offers (I own my laziness), but I can't remember who made them the last few years, and I don't want to post on the Yuletide comm to ask. (Because it seems like anything could happen. It's been a wild and crazy year over there, and that's before signups. By December, I predict there will be cannibalism and word riots on the Yuletide comm. You heard it here first!)

*hopeful eyes*

Can we start the cannibalism early?

Also, I'd bet any amount of money that you get more useful answers from posting here than from posting to the comm right now.

(More useful than this comment, hopefully.)

I run on a strict no-cannibalism policy. No cannibalism for you, missy! (Okay. Maybe a little cannibalism, but only if everyone says sorry afterward.)

I am left with the vague feeling that you are hopeful towards cannibalism. hmm.

it sounds like the kind of thing I'd do if I were into yultide, which, sadly, I'm not, so. good luck!

No, no, I definitely do not want cannibalism. I am not that kind of girl!

And someday we will convert you to our Yuletide ways. (In the meantime, um, I hope hearing about it for three months doesn't embitter you and make you cast a surprisingly successful curse on fandom which you later regret when all the posts on your friends list for three days say "ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit.")

Damn, I didn't save my spreadsheet before I started deleting stuff, so I'm no help to you. :(

(and OMG WORD on the comm. hold me!)

I feel weird having to say this to an accountant, but: ALWAYS SAVE THE SPREADSHEET. Don't they teach that in accountancy school, along with #2 pencil dueling and the famed integer dance?

*holds you tight*

*hums a Yuletide song loudly, until you can no longer hear the comm*

I can hook you up with a comma-delimited text file with about 50 extra fandoms on it (was done on Monday when all the changes weren't completed)...

Eeee! Thank you. I have downloaded it.

I just copied the list of fandoms straight into an Excel spreadsheet, removed "the" and alphabetised into one long column. I could send that if it would be any help?

That would be perfectly awesome! Thank you.

this is my first year of yuletide, so i assumed everything was normal? i don't like cannibalism! I didn't know this was wild crazy?

Don't worry! You don't have to be part of the cannibalism if you don't want to. In Yuletide, no one is required to eat anyone else. It's just that the chat community has gotten a wee bit hairier than usual, which I am trying to attribute to excess Yuletide spirit. I am actually hoping things will calm down now that sign ups are open and people have a proper outlet for their panicsquee.

Er...the hopeful eyes are anticipating the word riots, yes, and not the cannibalism? I hope?

Actually, word riots sound like fun. How would one start a word riot?

Ask "Do you pronounce 'skein' SKEEN or SKANE?" on Ravelry.

Yeesh!

The comm needs a serious case of "you must chill."
tofttoft_froggy on November 5th, 2009 03:24 am (UTC)
OMG, yes, I don't know what the heck is going on in that comm this year. So much hysteria!
starfishchick on November 5th, 2009 08:24 pm (UTC)
Boo, I just checked and one of my fandoms (RPF - Food Network) has disappeared! Booooooooooooooo!

Maybe I should go be angry in the comm? :)

The Yuletide comm has gone completely nuts! 0.o
