The usual deadline was 2000 GMT on Saturday.
Now usually there were multiple days of notice and usually there was only one week of stuff for people to submit and until the Typepad site closes this is just a Slacktiverse rather than the Slacktiverse but I think we might as well try to get something up this weekend.
This is what I'm thinking: the real goal will be to get the first official "... in the Slacktiverse" up next weekend, which should give people ample time to go through everything from the last month* and decide what to share, but for tomorrow we can try for a kind of trial run to get the hang of it. Yeah it's shorter notice than usual and this isn't the Slacktiverse yet, but we've got to start at some point.
So, the usual sections (which I figure we'll stick with) are:
The BlogaroundAny denizen of the Slacktiverse who has posted an article to their own website during since the previous weekend post is invited to send a short summary of that article along with its permalink to the group email address. That summary and link will be included in the next weekend blogaround. This will help to keep members of our community aware of the many excellent websites hosted by other members.
In Case You Missed ThisReaders of The Slacktiverse can send short summaries of, and permalinks to, articles that they feel might be of interest to other readers.
Things You Can DoAnyone who knows of a worthy cause or important petition should send a short description of the petition/cause along with its url to the group email address.
Said group email address is SlacktiverseAuthors (at) gmail (dot) com
So send in submissions if you have them and I'll do my best to get a weekend post up.
Aside from that, I figure that discussion about this place in general and any changes that might be made or such should be confined to one place, so talk about that should take place at the first post. This can be an open thread. So talk about your favorite color and how it relates to your preference in birds and axial tilt, or something. Probably something. I support "something" because the first topic is unlikely to generate much in the way of conversation.
Also, hi. This is my first post as an author here.
* The last "This Week in the Slacktiverse" will have been a month old when the typepad site closes one day after next weekend.
