Attention all members of dexter_news:

This is quarterturn. :) There were several offers to continue running the community when I asked, and I want to thank each one of you for offering your services.

lafemmedarla is the new owner of the community, and I think she'll do a wonderful job. I hope you'll all welcome her, and continue enjoying the community! :)

To all members of dexter_news:

As much as I enjoy the idea of this community, real life has taken over more of my time than I had anticipated and I'm no longer going to be able to continue it.

However, if someone expresses interest in continuing it, I'd be happy to hand it over. There's already a hundred members and over a hundred and fifty watchers, so I think it'd be easier than creating a brand new newsletter for Dexter. You could feel free to keep the layout or change it, the community would be yours to do with what you wanted.

Comment here if you're interested, comments are screened. Thanks to everyone who's contributed and watched the community! :)

Upcoming Schedule on Showtime - spoilery for episode 1x05 and 1x06 episode titlesCollapse )

Admin note: One of the most time-consuming tasks of this newletter is gathering episode reaction/review posts (and obviously I haven't had much time to do it this week.) I will continue to do it if there's interest, but I don't want to waste my time if people aren't utilizing the links. I know that in my own case, I very rarely, if ever, click on episode reaction/review links, especially when they're in a long list of other episode reaction/review links, and I get the feeling that's how it is for most people. So if you could fill out the poll under the cut as honestly as possible, it would be much appreciated. Feel free to discuss the topic further in the comments.
