For those of you following agrarian skies and / or some of nebris and arkas' vanilla eps since new spawn, you should know what's up.
So is anyone gonna tell me where all that fic's at?

Also, I guess it's about time someone brings up the Skype Chat again.

So hello ladies, gentleman, and others of salad. We have a group skype chat (technically 2 - 1 for sfw, 1 for nsfw -  that could use some new life. So give me a buzz if you're interested.

So I've been tossing around this idea for awhile, but it has always been one of those silly ideas you have in your head and you entertain fantasies of, while knowing they can't ever happen. Then Hawksirius messages me one day and says, "Hey, what if we did this?"

And I got really excited. What is 'this,' you ask?

As you probably guessed from the title, it has to do with Monstrous. Residual and Fated, too, but mostly Monstrous.

This idea is an animated, voiced, episodic-format series of Monstrous.

I'm going to put a cut in for anyone interested in reading further.

All of you should read the RULES and FAQ

As made known by Elfy, we have a Salad server that needs a new person to pay for it! Contact Elfy if you'd be willing. General FAQ for the salad server can be found here

We do have SFW and NSFW Skype chats. PM me your skype name and I will add you if you want.

There's a beta forum, which you can use to get betas/editors, throw ideas around, etc. That can be found here. It was fairly shaky in getting off the ground, but if you guys can keep it active, it will be helpful. :)

If you ever wanted to easily find older fics, we have the Salad Files Project. It's uncompleted, but fairly thorough in finding fics through 2014. That can be found here.

As far as subcommittees go, we have SaladLove for self-inserts, saladers/saladers, saladers/Mindcrackers, etc. That can be found here.

All in all, have fun without being a dick and have fun shipping (or not shipping) whatever you want!

it's friday, i'm awfully bored...so what's your favorite mindcrack fanfiction? leave a link too, maybe you'll help someone else find their new favorite.

here's mine, "To Wait, To Watch, To Wish" by "mindcrack_love". it's an old one, july of 2013, but it's still good. nsfw nebtho. it was my introduction to the world of mindcrack fanfiction, not the first one i read but definitely the one that made me stay.

please mention if your fic is sfw or nsfw, don't want anyone stumbling upon something they don't like.

 Hi. Long time no post. Am I still allowed to make discussion posts even though I havent been very active?

Anyways. I would have put this on the general discussion forum on the beta service site, but the most recent post was in December, so it seems to me it has been abandoned...

I have doubts about even posting this )

An update was just posted on Mindcrack's website that you all should read

http://mindcracklp.com/mindcrack-is-changing

TL;DR: Mindcrack is changing the way it goes about itself and how it works and because of that GenerikB, BdoubleO, thejims, Etho, and PaulSoaresJr are no longer a part of Mindcrack.

A full, more detailed explanation is in the link above so please read it.

MC's personal post.

As a long time openly queer fan of Mindcrack, I'm proud and happy this is a thing. And I know there's a chance you'll see this too, MC.

Much love from us here at the Salad (thank you for naming us that)!
[personal profile] oliviathecf
 so! first off, hello, how are y'all doin', it's been awhile, etc, etc.

this post is part bragging, part related to the salad as a whole. it involves embarrassing myself, meeting lots of friends and mindcrackers, and hanging out with an irl friend that i hadn't seen in a good few months.

here we go! i hope the pictures go under the cut lmao.

No he didn't read it. But someone tweeted it at him (because the chat was discussing it, although he somehow didn't notice that) and he opened it. Just though you guys would like to see this footage if you weren't on the stream.

Questions!!!

1. What would you say is to blame for the lack of posts here? Holiday rush, lack of inspiration, or something else?

2. As other games are played, do you find it difficult to write "pure" Mindcrack fics (as in Minecraft based)?

And welcome to the Rush of December!

We haven't had one in a while, have we? For the newbies, and the somewhat-newbies, sunday chat us a (supposedly) weekly chat that's posted every Sunday. Apparently we haven't had a Sunday in a while. Discuss anything in the comments, Mindcrack, salad, fics, whatever. 

Mindcrack news! Sponsored but not sponsored by the weekly recap on Mindcrack network hosted by OMGChad! He does a much better job so check that out!

Anderz gets the derz, well derp, part of his name fulfilled while building in space. Ge almost lived, too. 

Aureylian gives moar thanks :P. Lots of it going around :D

Orange wool does a tournament. 

Avidya does more building. 

BTC declares hate on living things. Makes sense, considering his skin :P. He also gets a new base. 

Chad does building, cleaning, and enchanting work, as well as posts the podcast I'm getting this from :D

Beef starts with three dogs, ends with one. He also starts on the entrance of his new base. 

The cupcake mafia cleans Genny's slimy mess. Genny obviously never was taught to clean up after himself. He also finds a slightly misplaced RV. 

JSano jinxed himself while caving in search of riches. 

BDubs builds. Really, what else do you expect? He also does redstone. Not as expected. 

Adlington tackles projects. 

Etho starts speed-mining and building. 

MC finds a stronghold!

Vechs asks for texture packs. 

Bah works in the inside of the courthouse. 

Series are ended and started, and games are tested. 

Podcast episode 93! Seven left 'till... Uh.... 93+7.... 100! Seven left until the great hundred!

Questions for this week!

Who thinks these should come back?
How does one react to such OOG feels? If you read the fic before this post, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
Do you feel like fic quality has declined since the olden days of salad? Do you think it should be highly recommended to get a beta?

Remember, you can chat about anything. Just don't spam my inbox (looking at you, Goose. No caps-locking a name from Rangers Apprentice and posting it, though Tug is awesome :P)

Merry thanksgiving! Or happy thanksgiving? Either way, to the people who celebrate it, enjoy one of the few days the colonists helped the world! They don't happen often!

I feel like we need to have this discussuion.

What's your honest opinion on Saladcrack? Don't lie, that won't help anything. Just post your opinion and do so in a respectful manner.

EDIT: There is now a Saladcrack Dreamwidth: http://saladlove.dreamwidth.org/

Hello fellow Salad eaters. I'm here to talk to you today about a very important subject for all your fic writers out there.

I've been considering setting up a BETA READER & PLANNING FORUM for Salad. What this means is that people would be able to go there and ask for someone to give their fic a quick check over for anything from spelling errors, to inconsistencies, or offer their services to do the same. They would also be able to post planning threads there for upcoming fics if they need a little extra help, get some feed back and such.

The general boards offered would probably look like this:

GENERAL INFORMATION SUBFORUM:
F.A.Q
Rules
Etc

BETA READER SUBFORUM:
Beta Reader Wanted
Beta Readers Available
Closed Beta Reader Threads

FIC PLANNING SUBFORUM
SFW Fic Planning
NSFW Fic Planning
Orphaned Ideas
Prompt Swap? Fic Games?
 

This would be a huge thing for Salad and I genuinely believe it could help so many people here, there's no shame in asking for help. I always ask someone to check over my work before I post it, even just to check that the piece flows right and comes out as I intended it to, and not some jumbled up mess. Beta Readers are the editors of the fic world, and no published author would ever skip the stage of using an editor. It's always a good idea to use one.

Anyway you get the idea. What do you guys think? It's really important that you leave your view below, please do so. Would you use it? Any ideas to add? Etc etc.
