1:09 am - Closing the Doors

So. Strikethrough and Boldout, whatever. SixApart finally started clarifing some of what they mean. (if you're interested in more information and the hypocrisy, I have a post compiling some of it)

Their clarifications, coupled with the banning of ponderosa121 for drawing Harry of ambiguous late-teen age in a sexual situation had me pondering the fate of the community. This is going to be a copy-pasted write up for two communities that are being closed (alchemy_bullets and envyedo) so adjust any details as needed to apply to each, since the main reason these are being closed is the same.

Edward Elric is half the pairing for each, and for the majority of the series and in the current entirety of the manga, he is under the age of 18. I could make a rule that nothing is to be posted that does not clearly have Edward aged 18 or older, but I won't. Because for one, I know many members do not necessarily write or draw him in that age range, and anything worked into a current-canon setting would automatically pin it down. It's stupid. And there have been other FMA communities on LJ which have closed their doors due to these events to protect the maintainers and members, which is what I am interested in doing.

However, I will not remove the communities. I will remain on as the sole maintainer, and if they suspend me for leaving up placeholders, so be it. There are alternative communities on both GJ and IJ, and feeds are supplied for each of them. Further information is behind the cut.

IJ: Envy_x_Ed | Alchemy_Bullets
GJ: Envy_x_Ed | Alchemy_Bullets

This is what I am doing for the communities, and the members, and the preservation of the posts and contentCollapse )
