Oy! Fanartists! [14 May 2007|08:21pm]

UnknowableRoom is in dire need of fanartists willing to draw canon characters (or situations, or objects... anything you'd like, really) to illustrate our wiki!

Full credit will, of course, be attributed; you will also get our eternal gratitude, and the satisfaction of seeing your art put to great use. :)

If you'd like to help, or if you know someone who could either help or allow his/her drawings to be posted there, please comment here or send me an email at christycorr@livejournal.com!

UnknowableWiki [02 Jan 2007|12:23am]

Happy new year!

We're thrilled to announce a new UR feature:


It's our own wiki project, using the same interface as Wikipedia, but focusing only on the Harry Potter universe (and, of course, ur.org). There are several fanfiction-oriented pages, including helpful tips regarding Mary Sues, characterisation, and much more!

And the best part is that you can contribute! Just register (preferably with your UR.org username) and follow the instructions in the main page.

What are you waiting for? Go check it out!

(A huge, huge thank you to each of you who volunteered and made this wiki presentable! latine, sweetcherrytree, _thirty2flavors, lacunaz, dianaprallon, Gul, firstlightofeos, kirrea, ladyofmasbolle, neverwiser, luminous_star87, alya1989262 and anokam, you guys are brilliant.)

FAQ. [24 Jul 2005|02:09pm]




How do I sign up for LiveJournal?

To join thegreatbreak, you must first create an account at LiveJournal.com. To do so, simply click here and follow the instructions on the page.

How do I join the community?

To join The Great Break, click here, or join manually by going to the Great Break’s userinfo. Then, click the available hyperlink and confirm your choice to join the community. You’ll be asked if you wish to "watch" this community, otherwise known as
add this community to your friends list. You can change this option at any time, by modifying your friends list.

Why can’t I read any entries in the community?

All entries in this community are friends-only (friend-locked, or flocked). Membership to the community allows you to see all of these friends-only posts. 

                 I've joined. Why can’t I read any entries in the community?

                 After joining, remember to sign in. All entries should be visible.

I can see introductions and random posts. Where's the Fanfiction? 

A fanfiction archive is in the works at UnknowableRoom.org; To read fanfiction here, you can go to user info page of thegreatbreak, where a few links are listed. Among them, there are Fic Recommendations (where you will find fanfiction recommended by the members) and New Stories (which are stories written by members themselves). Or, you can check out the Memories, and find the links to fanfiction from there. Meanwhile, you can check each member author's individual profile page at several other archives, such as Fanfiction.net, Portkey.org and Fictionalley.org.

What is the community all about?

thegreatbreak was formed after the arbitrary deletion of several fanfictions from the fanfiction.net servers. Many authors then decided to build a new, somewhat friendlier archive.

Where is the new archive?

We estimate that, by the end of August, our archive will be hosted here (www.unknowableroom.org/ - UR.org for short).

Who runs the community?

The nine Moderators -- Dede (</a></a>nitwitinperil  - Solarism), Sarina (</a></a>sarinileni - Sarinileni), Lynn (</a></a>likeatuesday - Y. Kuang), Holly (</a></a>uswigo - everblue3), Jenna (</a></a>silverspinner - Silverspinner), Erin (</a></a>erak10 - erak), </a>moon_dancing - Missers), Christy (</a></a>christycorr - Christy Corr) and Runi (</a></a>firstlightofeos - Eos) -- currently run the community as well as the archive.

Meeting point here, now.

Random discussion topics, et al.

[ mood | passionate ]

Dear friends,

We're, obviously, thegreatbreak. If you don't know who we are or what we do, you've clearly been under a rock.

We're creating a Harry Potter fanfiction archive. Go us. All entries are friends only, so you'll have to join to read.

*cough* Dede loves Holly, Chris, Runi, Missy, Jenna, Sarina, Erin, and Lynn. *cough*
