Hi All, the end of Promptathon - sad times - does mean that it's time for the return of All The Things Friday, yay! Once again we're on the look out for volunteers to host our Friday parties and suggest topics.What is this All The Things Friday of which you speak?
All The Things Friday is bascially a day where we have a post that kicks off a weekend-long party. That post can be a call for recs, discussion, picspams, meta, thinky thoughts, squee, dance parties, mini challenges, ANYTHING that you would like to see on this comm. You can take a look at any of the tags with 'Friday' in to see the kinds of things that we've gotten up to before. Although if someone has already used your idea, don't worry; repeats are fine, because there are always new fics to rec and ideas had :)Who can host?
Anyone. You can host on your own, or as a team, or with a mod. If you have suggestions but don't want to host you can comment with suggestions, and if you're not sure about hosting you can chat about ideas in the comments.What does hosting mean?
Being the person that writes the party post and then joining in with the fun that happens. It's not writing War and Peace, just something to get things going, like questions to get people thinking about meta or a theme for fic recs.It's moderating something?
No, don't worry. If you have any problems throw it to the mods as normal. It's more like chairing a gathering, being the DJ, yelling for drinks all around. It's as much or as little work as you want it to be.How does hosting work?
You write a post about what kind of Friday you want it to be, opening up the floor, and you post it at any time on a Friday. For people worried about timezones, really, any time - we party on throughout the weekend. At the bottom of your Friday post we'd like you to copy and paste this:
