Here's the Diigo account I've backed up the fills on- they should all show up soon. It may take up to 24 hours (they're getting a hell of a lot of requests for backups from Delicious users, it seems) and on top of that, they go in bit by bit, and we have... a lot. Heh. If anyone still archiving wants the password, just PM me. If not, I can just periodically make copies of the updates to the Delicious account and update it like that.

And a very merry Christmas to you all. Or just plain have a great weekend. :)

Hey all. It's been a while, I know.

As some of you are no doubt aware (since, well, you PMed me, haha- thank you for that, by the way) Delicious is apparently being shut down. At the moment, we're not sure when the actual closing down is likely to happen, but I'm going to put my bets on it being fairly soon, alas. Obviously, this poses a problem with regards to the fact that the archives of filled and unfilled fic are currently hosted there.

I'm going to export all the current filled Delicious bookmarks onto a couple of Diigo accounts ASAP just to make sure they're backed up. I have the .htm files now- the accounts should be up themselves by the end of tomorrow (GMT, for the record, so my tomorrow may not be your tomorrow...)

I do not have the password for the unfilled account to my knowledge- as far as I remember I was never directly involved in that side. Anyone who does have it, could you please drop me a line? This is what I get for changing computers in the last year, heh.

I'll sort it out more thoroughly soon (for a start I'll share the account with anyone still archiving), but yeah, no worries, I promise the archives aren't just going to disappear.

Thanks for your time guys. Now I kind of have to get off to bed, but if anyone has any questions I can try and get to them tomorrow.

ETA: OK, strike that; Diigo is so overloaded right now that transfers are going INCREDIBLY slowly. I'm going to give it another few days before I make the backup, possibly. Don't worry though, the .htm file is there.

Also, apparently Delicious might not be closing so much as being sold/sent to somewhere else/whatever. On the other hand, this might end up falling through, so I'm still going to set up a back-up account just in case it all goes to hell. See here.

I'm officially closing st_xi_kink.

Not due to any recent problems, arguments, discussions or wank, may I add. Pure and simple: I'm back at school, and this year is one hell of a tough one. It's just... after one month, I simply cannot keep up with this comm. Many of you have probably noticed that, I'm sure. And I will, regrettably, not be taking requests to take it over. I don't know people well enough within STXI fandom to make an accurate judgement as to who might make a suitable choice; and first come, first serve has been attempted and has failed many times before. I don't think I could ever risk that happening to this community, selfish as that may be. I thought long and hard about this: simple closure is simply the way this is going to have to go, as sad as it may seem.

The current post will remain open, as will all others. But no new ones will be posted, and I want to emphasize this: I am stepping down as moderator. The post will be unmoderated. So please, it is at your own risk. I just cannot emphasise that enough.

This has been the single most incredible fandom activity I've ever run, guys. I tend to be very retiring within fandom, so to see so many people be just incredibly enthusiastic about a film I really adore has been just- wow! Amazing. Thank you all so, so much for allowing me the opportunity- and privelege- of modding for you all. I'm heartbroken to leave it, truly. This started out as a I'd-like-to-get-some-fic-from-a-new-fandom thing. I was never expecting beyond a thousand comments, especially not considering that when I started it up, the fanfic communities already established weren't exactly getting much traffic themselves.

You guys are insane like that. <3

(Also, whoever the hell wrote me the amazing biblical passages, can I just say that I have never laughed so hard in my life. Oh, and same for everyone who did the Vulcan pickup lines. Actually, I'll stop, because this meme made me laugh a lot.)

Bon voyage, guys. Ad Astra per aspera and all that. IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. ...OK actually I cannot think of a single innuendo, help me out here.

Discussion post

My profound apologies for being so late in putting this up and replying to... well, everything. I've been both ill recently and overwhelmed with schoolwork; not the best combo. Just chucking this up quickly while I have a minute.

ATTN: regarding reposts
As a new guideline: for the time being, I'd like to put a damper on the re-requesting going on. Please only re-request something if it has been more than a month since you asked for it and it still hasn't been filled. I'd like to remind everyone that old parts still have many unfilled requests, and ask that everyone remember to try and look through said old parts as well as the shiny new ones, for that matter.

This is nigh-on impossible to truly mod, I know. So I'm trusting you
guys here. Since you're all so win-tastic and awesome. <3

Do NOT post recent spoilers for fandoms outside of Star Trek. Use your own discretion on time periods, but seriously, don't be an arsehole about it. If you really MUST, make your text white through HTML and utilise it as makeshift spoiler tags (highlight to read, etc.)


Is now a group effort! See [info]stxikinkarchive for how to help! <3

Do not post new requests on part one/part two/part three/etc. or they will be deleted. However, if you see a prompt there you like, please feel free to fill it and reply to the comment on the 'Part One'/'Part Two'/etc. post!


Kink what?

What is a kink meme? Pretty self explanatory, actually. You request a pairing and a prompt/kink anonymously, and someone else (or several someone elses for that matter) will be able to fill that request- also anonymously. Fun way to get fic, fun way to find fic to write, and good if you're embarrassed to post! Fun for the whole fami- oh. Er, maybe not. You know what I mean! (Note that while this is called a kink meme, the rules are pretty fast and loose. Nonexplicit fic is also allowed, though pure gen is generally discouraged.

ETA: However. I'll be pretty lax about that as well, I think, so long as an emphasis is placed on either a) kinky stuff or b) some form of character relationship, even non sexual/romantic. But please, bear in mind this is a kink meme first and formost, guys? :)



♦ Post requests and responses in the comments to this post.
♦ Be respectful. As fanficrants says: saying 'your kink is not OK' generally makes you look like a total dickhead.
♦ Both a pairing/character AND a prompt/kink must be posted.
♦ One pairing/prompt per post please.
♦ You are encouraged to try and write a prompt for every request you make.
♦ We are slash, femslash, het, three-and-moresomes etc. friendly.
♦ No pairing bashing, OK? No need to wank over ships.
♦ Long and short fics welcome. Multiple responses encouraged!
♦ Going 'seconded' isn't banned as it were, but I'd rather you used the comments for more productive things please?
New! On RPF: Please disclaim that it is RPF, a work of fiction and in no way related to the actual actors/persons/etc. RPF is only permitted if at least one Star Trek character is involved as well.
New!: Many guidelines are quite long winded and thus not included here. Please see the posts to the community on the 'mod', 'info' or 'rules' tags if you are unsure of anything. This especially goes for rules concerning discussion of prompts and how to deal with wank.
New! Guidelines on RP in the kink meme here.

Have fun!

I gave up on replying in the other threads last post; there was some quite long discussion going on, and I was a little unsure of who should be replied to.

Let me make this very, very clear. I had taken for granted we all assumed this waaay back at the start of the meme, when I was unprepared for the size of this thing, and apparantly we didn't. Fair enough. Ten, twenty, fifty people assuming? Reasonable. But goodness knows how many people are here now.

So to put it bluntly.

Repeatedly post offensive shit when logged in and I will ban your account.

Posting offensive shit? Not OK.

I don't care that kink memes 'aren't politically correct!'.

There is a difference between a kink and showing your actual real life racism/sexism/whatever.

If there's a problem specific to this meme- like, say, treatment of Uhura- use some damn common sense and think that hey, whether *you* feel it's fair or not, it's a touchy subject for people and maybe you should consider your prompts about her character differently than other characters.

On another note, what counts as 'discussion'.

Discussion of prompts: when you're saying, 'do you mind if as well as A/B, there's D/C?', or 'hey, you said A did this, but it was actually B', or 'actually, in TOS, it was ____, not ____'. Short stuff needed for the writer/requester, or maybe people discussing their reasons for 'seconding', etc.

Discussion: when you're in a debate that has little to no bearing on what info you would need to theoretically write a prompt, but rather, is an in depth discussion sparked off by the prompt/a comment/etc, that's more along these lines.

Obviously this is a little arbitrary, vague, etc. But it's difficult to show a specific line where it's one or another.


If anyone has any more questions, please please please feel free to PM me, comment here anonymously, anything.

And to top this off: my entry last night was rushed and poorly thought out. I apologise for how I worded it, how I posted it when I should have waited until I had a moment to consider that I sounded like a complete damn moron, and how I have, in fact, acted rather like a moron over this matter at times. Doesn't excuse them; but I am sorry.
