Rumours of the deaths of the moderators here at [livejournal.com profile] ship_manifesto have been greatly somewhat exaggerated. At least one of us still breathes, occasionally - we usually take it in turns. ;) Meatlife had been soul-sucking for both of us in recent months, but hopefully that will soon change... for the better!

We do apologise for the lack of attention this comm has recently received, and to show our appreciation of everyone who's still hanging around waiting for us to do something, we're going to let you do something. :D

I DECLARE A FREE MONTH!!!


Short on time, but still want to sing the praises of your favorite OTP/OT3/OT4? Step right up! Be creative! There are absolutely no rules, other than respecting each other, behaving in an adult manner, and using an lj-cut.

You can write as much or as little as you want to, add screencaps or not, quote scenes that make you squee. It really is up to you. A post here is basically saying "This is why I love x/y and why you should too." How about the top twenty reasons why 'blank' deserves better, but you still can't help shipping them together? Maybe there's not much - or any! - actual canon for your crazy crossover pairing, but you want to tell everyone why Faith Lehane(Buffy)/Dean Winchester(Supernatural) is the best pairing ever? This is the time and the place to do it.

"Free Month" runs for the rest of the month of May and all of June! Someone should be around to approve posts on a daily basis, to prevent any possible flist logjams. *g*

Anyone who has already commented on the sign-up list is free to post their manifesto as and when they are ready, up to the end of June. If anyone requires longer than that, please let me know at the signup post, and you will be assigned a suitable date.

Let the festivities commence! :D

I will begin logging all claims (that have been submitted since our hiatus announcement) this weekend. I'll carefully go through the entry but errors and/or oversights can and do happen. So if you don't see your claim listed by Sunday night please feel free to send us a private message and we'll try to figure out where we went wrong.

We had a lot of plans for this community during the last half of 2009 that went totally down the drain. We hope, that with your help, 2010 brings us a new beginning, a new sense of commitment, and brand new discoveries to obsess over.

Thank you for your continued support!

What new pairing/threesome/foursome essay would you love to see pop up on your friends list next year? Let us know what you're hoping some lovely volunteer will post this coming year.

Personally, I am praying that some kind soul will see fit to sign up to do an Iruka/Kakashi (Naruto) ship essay. There's also the little-known Mac/Vic from Once A Thief. What about Kurt/Puck from Glee? And let's not forget the awesome that is the OT3 of Alec/Parker/Eliot (Leverage).

Oh and I'd love to see an updated Harry/Draco essay with the most recent canon developments. Pretty please?



What are you hoping for? Come on in and share!

Our most sincere apologies to [livejournal.com profile] ship_manifesto readers, watchers and current volunteers for our absence. Due to real life obligations including work, school, and families the community will be placed on a brief hiatus. I will log all current claim requests, extension requests, and update all master lists this weekend . The sign-up post will then be closed until our grand re-opening which is tentatively scheduled for February 1st, 2010.

We thank you for your patience and look forward to getting back to business come the new year.

Happy Holidays!

All polls will close at 10 PM EST Tuesday, October 6th, 2009 instead of October 7th or October 8th. We'll be freezing membership requests at that point since we will probably be moving the Survival of the Hottest polls to another location due to complaints from and concerns expressed by community members. I sincerely apologize to those members who have been inconvenienced by the polling.

Thank you and goodnight.

1- Polling will resume tonight @ 10 PM EST. There will be no do-overs. We are picking up exactly where we left off.

2 - Polls will be set to members/friends only. The community is currently set to moderated membership. If you decide to join we'll be accepting new members once we've had a looksie to make sure that the journal in question isn't a sock. Lurkers are fine. Once we crown our #1 you're more than welcome to pack your bags if you're no longer interested in being a member of this community. No worries.

3- We'll be setting up individual threads for each 'ship so that members or readers who are having trouble loading the entries (because of picspams or wathever) can more easily get to the 'ship they are interested in.

4 - If you have ideas or suggestions on how to make this process a little lot smoother next year, please feel free to drop us a line. I would certainly appreciate any help you guys can offer.


That's all folks! See you at 10.

1 - We will once again have to post do-overs for our most recent polls. It's been almost a month and I've barely gotten through all votes for the first match up of Round #4 - Buffy/Spike vs. Leonard McCoy/Spock. At this rate, I may finish by early 2010. *g* So unfortunately if we want to crown our 2009 champ in oh say 2009, we'll have to try this again. That brings me to note #2.

2 - WE NEED YOU! We need volunteers who may have an hour or two to spare to do spot-checks every so often during voting. See something fishy, check it out while the poll is open and in progress, so that we can avoid the task of checking over 700 LJs once the poll has closed. Leave me a comment if you're willing to help us out. (Comments screened)

3 - Poll time! We want to know what you think about the idea of members-only voting. It would help us keep the socks away. But I know some believe it will take the joy and fun out of activity for them; the rallying of the troops, gathering other like-minded fans to support their favorites. So I'm stuck. This was supposed to be all about the FUN; about discovering new obsessions, re-discovering old loves, community... FUN FUN FUN! But it's been nothing but a headache for this mod and I'm trying to get that loving feeling back so we can go back to the happy-making part and finish this out on a high note. Let me know what you think. (Comments screened)

Our search for #1 comes to a grinding halt again. We're taking a longer break than originally anticipated because we have once again found puppets. *sigh* I'm trying to remain calm. I mean, I should have expected it. But I've found a couple of blatant ones so far that just left me ... *hands* I don't know. This weekend will now be spent sorting through 700 or so LJ users because usually where there's smoke there's fire.

I'll be working on it. And those of you who are playing by the rules, thank you for your patience and please stick around. We will get there somehow!
[identity profile] shipm-mod.livejournal.com
All polls have been closed as of 10 PM EST. We will now take a couple of days to briefly check for obvious socks. We're trusting that you guys would not be so cruel as to put us through another hunt for puppets. *fingers crossed* Have your pimpin' hats ready because our Championship Round (Round 4) begins on Friday.

- We have, IIRC, one more Round 1 and Round 3 to go. We'll be playing catch-up with those two groups all next week. The final showdown should go up on Friday, September 18th, 2009. We will keep that poll up for a week and crown our first ever champion on Saturday, September 26th, 2009.

We now know that the following teams {Tyra voice} are still in the running to become {/Tyra voice} our first ever #1 and reign supreme above all (by virtue of winning their 3rd round match):


Our motley crew  )


We'll be adding more 'ships as we finish up the rest of our early rounds. Thank you so much for your continued support!

The last Do Overs were due to an over-abundance of sockpuppets, but this one is definitely a Mea Culpa. Your poll-wrangling mod has cocked up and will now fall on her sword and beg you to rally the troops to re-vote on some of last night's reshuffled matchups. These are the ones I mentioned that had been set up incorrectly or skipped over and we now need to tie up. There are 14 in total. *wipes brow* 14 out of over 400+! I like those numbers. I was expecting more. But with everyone's help we've been able to keep errors down to a minimum. Forward we go to the matches ...

Round III - Part IV )


Poll will close @ 10 PM EST on Tuesday, September 8th, 2009.


A couple of things:

- We have decided to proclaim today as 'Do Over Sunday'. After countless hours spent slouched over the computer screen going over each and every username (over hundreds, dude) trying to figure out what and what not to count, we've decided to void out all results for those two or three questionable polls from July. New ones will be going up sometime today and we look forward to crowning our first champions from those particular tourney brackets. Remember that all pairings that reach Round #4 automatically move on regardless of whether they win their tourney bracket. And we'll hopefully get to the ultimate showdown by the end of this month. *fingers crossed*

- During the final showdown you'll have a number of votes to spread around to your favorites. The pairings/threesomes with the top ten scores will become our 1st EVAH TOP TEN OF HOTNESS (sort of like very own homecoming court only... NOT). And the 'ship with the highest score will be our FAIREST AND HOTTEST OF ALL. We're thinking artwork of some kind featuring them will grace our user info and maybe *hint hint* (if a kind fan steps forward) a new community header for the year until we do it all over again. *hands*

- There will be a few matches that we'll need you re-vote on as they were inadvertently set up incorrectly or skipped over in the sea of over 400 'ships. Don't worry! The results of these match-ups will not affect what has already been settled up to now. We don't foresee any problems; just trying to tie up all loose ends before the finals.
