Community description:BBC Merlin Announcements
Welcome to the BBC Merlin Noticeboard!

This community has been modeled on the [livejournal.com profile] ds_noticeboard and [livejournal.com profile] sga_noticeboard communities and will follow roughly the same rules.

The [community profile] merlin_noticeboard is for announcing any and all Merlin stories, vids, and discussion posts; sharing Merlin news; and making Merlin recs.

We do have a sister community at Livejournal that you can find here: [livejournal.com profile] merlin_bulletin and we encourage crossposting. If you do crosspost, please make a note of that in your entry.

We have created feeds for both communities if you would prefer reading these.
this is the Dreamwidth Feed

Posting rules:

  • Please use the subject line to mark an entry as a [New Story] or [New Vid] announcement, a [Rec] post, a [News] post, or a [Discussion] post. Please do not post entire stories or discussions here, just links. If you need a place to host your stories, art or discussion please consult the list of other Merlin Communities that might offer you that.

  • Please judiciously use cut tags for long posts (such as extended lists of recs). Also, see the spoiler policy below.

  • Communities, (& Fanlistings): Please post only a single announcement for any new community (please tag it with the community tag when you do!), and please do not cross-post subsequent announcements from that community. An LJ intended for use as a public bulletin board that is not created through LJ as a comm will still count as a community if we deem it to have generally the same indended usage as a community.

  • Challenges: Please post an initial announcement of the challenge, and then one follow-up announcement when the challenge is closed and the stories are posted. Please do not post challenges that are a regular part of a community. (EG: weekly or monthly Icon Challenges.)

  • WIPs/short-shorts: It's hard to make a single rule for this that would not block a lot of content that people would like to see, so instead, we just ask that you use your best judgment when posting these. If you tend to write a lot of chapters, or many short-short pieces or story outlines, please batch them up and post a single update with a bunch of them, rather than announcing each one separately.

  • Stories, vids, art, recs: Please post away! In fact, if you are doing a story/vid/etc for a smaller community, please especially think about cross-posting the work here also. For one thing, you will make it easier for people to find your stuff, and if you link to the work in the smaller community, that is a good way of promoting the community without adding noise to the noticeboard.

  • Please do not link to any locked entries. All links posted here should be publically available.

  • Please *do* announce your own work here, don't be shy, and please encourage other Merlin posters to do the same. You can also post to direct people to things that have been posted by others.

  • Finally, please use the community tags when making posts! It makes it much easier for everyone to find the posts that they want to see when browsing back in time.


    Spoiler Policy:

    If your post contains any spoilers for any episode or season, regardless of whether or not the episode has already aired in your part of the world, a spoiler warning should be included, and *all* spoilers must be hidden below a cut-tag.

    Spoilers include cast information ("Richard Wilson (Gaius) is still alive in Season 2!"), location information ("I visited the set last week and saw them working on a ...!"), reactions ("Here's a link to my rant about this episode"), and of course any plot points. Basically, everything other than the episode name is a spoiler. When in doubt, please be courteous and cut-tag.

    Your mods are: [personal profile] mamoru, [personal profile] che, [personal profile] tikiberry and [personal profile] tmz_cori
