As of today, we're up to 45 Legendfirians. In the Reboot Announcement, I said that once we reach a membership of 50, we would host our first contest. We're almost there, folks! Five more people to go.
Spread the word across the web however you can. LF's Twitter account is up and active again, so if you tweet, please retweet LF's stuff. If you're active in a Facebook writing group (besides our own), consider posting a link to the forum. (Sharing from LF's Facebook page does not work, because it's a private group, so you'd need to copy the forum link from your browser.)
IN THE MEANTIME! I would like to know what kinds of contests you'd like to see us host. Our goal would be to spread out contests among each quarter, so let us know your ideas in this thread, and we'll try to incorporate as many as we can over the next few months and years. Assuming we get those next 5 members in the near future.
Thanks for caring about the community, and for coming back! You're necessary.

I know it may not be possible this year, but I remember the Halloween contest being fun and popular. I would love to see the annual Legends contest make a return, maybe as a spring or summer event so as not to compete with Nano.
Okay! I've settled on a contest theme and I'm taking care of some behind-the-scene stuff like practicing with the bulk email system and building badges and whatnot. And I know we've been very eager to get a contest going, but the timing is rather rotten.
NaNoWriMo just got started, and we want our NaNo folks to be able to partake in our contest, so we should probably wait until the first part of December to launch our contest. If all goes well, we'll get it going on 4 December. Exactly 1 month away!
In the meantime, keep spreading the word and posting and stuff. The community can't grow without you.

pelwrath: Ben Franklin had me in mind when he defined insanity.

RAVENEYE: LOL, and what precisely was his definition of insanity?

pelwrath: “Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”. This is attributed to Ben Franklin.

RAVENEYE: Oh, hell yes. That totally defines me too. So I guess we're similar kinds of crazy, Pel. I'll take it.

pelwrath: I received a new rating/review last night on Twitter, originally posted on GR. I posted it in the boasting thread. I think it’s a pretty darn good review.

whaleworkforfood: Just realized I had accidentally sent a few out-of-context lines of a WIP to a client. Am dying from embarrassment. She probably thinks I'm off my rocker ... or that I'm hitting on her

ScintillaMyntan: I realized yesterday evening that I made a small mistake at work and was freaking out. Seeing that someone else is going through work mistake embarrassments is making me feel better. We all go through this, I guess.

pelwrath: Working 2nd shift, I had a small presentation to do at shift change with the supervisor and engineers. The plan manager and my boss were there, not unusual. I finished, my boss said I did a great job. The PM said:”Jeff, you don’t work 2nd shit. Good job.

RAVENEYE: Oh, gosh, I'm cringing for you guys. No matter what anyone says, I know how awesome you all are.

Caulder Melhaire: Yeah I work with bulk amounts of tech at once, so when I screw up it's usually a lot of tedious fixing tags and reimaging like 50 devices at once LOL

Caulder Melhaire: ALSO: The February contest is still looking for entrants! We need at least two more brave souls to dip their toes in and make things interesting

RAVENEYE: Caulder Melhaire - Foxxglove needs to be added to the registration. I think her post got missed. So we need one more! *wink wink* Looking at you, Caulder. If you and Foxxglove team up, the rest of us are doomed.
