Hey folks!

For those of you who don't quite realize due to the icon, I'm the original creator of this community. (Most people here will call me 'Ms. Mod' or 'Kawa'.) I'm here to answer some questions that have been asked lately and offer clarifications about my own vision for this community.

I created this community almost two years ago (erhmahgehrd!) as an alternative to the subreddit, a place where I could express thoughts I didn't want to express over there in a format I was personally comfortable with. At the time, I was working part time in a data entry job that allowed me to listen to Youtube at work, so I had lots of time to listen to videos and generally interact with Mindcrack.

And yes, some of those thoughts were fanfiction; some were shippy, and some of those thoughts were both shippy and smutty (NSFW link for the second one). I have a background of even more obviously real person fandom under a different username, so I was personally comfortable with it. A lot of people at Reddit weren't comfortable with the idea, even within the clearly fantastical setting of video games, so I didn't want those thoughts expressed there.

But some of those thoughts weren't fanfic at all, and a lot was just me watching stuff and having a place to talk about it.

We've grown in a big way, partially because the Mindcrackers themselves have become more and more overt about knowing who we are which makes us easier to find. We've been mentioned in every Zeldathon in the past two years, plus more podcasts and tweets than I can count. I know not everyone likes the attention, but it's clear that at least some Mindcrackers (looking at you, MC and Vechs!) check on us regularly and like what we do! And I, for one, really appreciate that.

I've also had some major changes in my life - I've had two job changes (with major moves) in that interval, one huge family health crisis, and various other events that I'm not willing to share, plus other fandoms that mean a lot to me have started having major activity again. I'm now finally seeing the benefits of my advanced degree, working full time at a job that challenges and excites me. This does mean that I don't have the time for absorbing Mindcrack canon like I used to, sadly, so I feel really behind when trying to catch up. Luckily, I have a fantastic mod team who I trust - thank you so much to [personal profile] red_wolf and [personal profile] scaredykitty for being wonderful.

So I'd like to reiterate: shippy or not, fanfic or not, all these things are part of this community. This is exactly why I changed the byline to an alternate Mindcrack community: all this was meant to be was an alternative to the subreddit, and it's been doing that in style. Yes, we are ship-friendly, fanfic-friendly, probably the first and most active place to do so for this fandom: but things that don't fit that mold always have been and always will be part of what we are.

I'd also like to reiterate that this is a fan-made community, and what you make of it is your own. I don't want to censor people or make them feel unwelcome in any way, shape, or form, and I want to encourage people to be part of it in any way they feel fit. Want to revive Group Rewatch? Want to make Work in Progress Wednesdays or Teaser Thursdays alongside the already fan-made Sunday chat posts? YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO DO THIS, AND YOU SHOULD NOT FEEL LIKE YOU CAN'T.

It is not the mod team who made the "external Salad things" happen: Skype chats, Minecraft servers, other communities here or on Tumblr or wherever: It is perfectly reasonable to have more places than just this Dreamwidth be alternatives to Youtube comments and the subreddit. We are not competing with each other, just making there be a variety of places to show our love and support of Mindcrack.

Just continue to be excellent to each other, follow the rules, and have fun. I'm proud of this community, of all we've made together, and I hope for many more years of fun and fandom from you all.

Love,
Ms. Mod

Okay, so I'm an idiot and posted this on the wrong page, so if you see this somewhere else, it never happened...

Um, Hello there...

I really have no idea what I'm doing to be honest. I've been lurking for a little less than a month now, and I figured I might as well introduce myself!

My name is Jacob, however on the interwebs I am known as TDScott8! You may call me Scott. I haven't written much fan fiction, and what I have has not been put on the internet! I do however plan to start taking my writing more seriously, it'll take a lot of work for me to be as good as a lot of people here though. I'll read any ships once or twice, lately I've been an uber supporter of OOG and Kurt x Zisteau (Kurtsteau?) Anyways, that's me! Sorry if this wasn't written in proper format, I haven't read the Rules page yet!

Also, is there a skype chat or something of the sort where I can easily communicate with some people here? :3

I personally think he would make a fine princess ;D

So it's been all dolled up with prettiness thanks to r7. :D This one's rather short compared to the others. It's lacking in action. Too much of a good thing makes it stale, right? Well enjoy it. :)

Ummmm.... Not sure where this came from, but it's a thing...

Sorry for having it be all weird and not explaining some stuff, but it's a prompt (granted it's one that I expanded upon a WHOLE bunch) and it's a fan fic, so it's not supposed to make sense! Right? Right? Crap, have I been doing this wrong the whole time? But really, hope you like the final part of the adventure in the universe of not explaining every detail because... That would make it like 6000 words (and it's already almost 4000)!

Hi everyone, my name is Lindy. I have been lurking around here for a couple of months and have finally decided to introduce myself.

I have no preference for ships and will read any ship at least once. Right now the Mindcrackers I watch the most are Guude and Vechs, but I jump from person to person.

As for writing things myself it is dependent on my confidence. Right now I am working on an idea for a story but it is still in progress. My grammar is horrible, it is something I am working on. My English teachers in school were bad at dealing with me so I didn't learn much from them.

I am looking forward to interacting more with the group. :D

My Introduction.

Hola! My name is Hidger, yes, that is my real name, but my online name is Hidgerknight. I mainly write stuff for fun, and this is one of the places i will do it. Fair vexy bits of warnings about me : I have slight Dyslexia, so don't expect me to always keep everything the way it supposed to be for you, but opineons and suggestions are always open from y'all.

I mainly ship Nerumei (Betchu didn't see that comin'.) , Veylian, and i guess other minor shippings that i usually ignore, let alone The Main M8 and Rob's Wife.

New to community, decided to do a oneshot, also, I'm a big fan of Coestar. This is regarding him joining MindCrack season 5, also mentioning about his old minecraft series "Coe's Quest" and his original friend AvidyaZEN.


He was a proud man of himself. )
