fic/graphics auctions for Queensland

There are currently auctions going on to raise money for those affected by the Queensland floodings.

I am offering up my services for two;

one for writing fic here

one for making graphics etc here

I'm offering fic as well as gifs, graphics, icons, fanmixes, screencaps, tutorials etc.
If anyone else has a thread, maybe we could create a Community masterpost.

I know you're probably not interested in anything from me, but there are plenty of other people offering their services for this. So check out the threads.
Also, if you do not wish to bid/can not, there are plenty of other ways to help. Offer your services to make fic/graphics or promote these threads.
Thank you.


Taking a moment to plug caseland

caseland is an interactive challenge community along the lines of whedonland and many others. Members compete with teammates to gain points. Challenges range from writing to graphics making to puzzles to other randomness. caseland is specifically focused on television series within the "police procedural" category.
Phase 2 has just started. So there's plenty of time to apply for a team and get involved in the initial challenges.

Apologies for the OT

Why was this not promoted more?

here is the full info

If you have Google Chrome you need to install this extension. It's only running til the 19th:

Everyone’s total tabs will determine a charitable donation made on behalf of the Chrome community, up to one million dollars. Here's what your tabs can do:
10 tabs = 1 tree planted
10 tabs = 1 book published and donated
25 tabs = 1 vaccination treatment provided
100 tabs = 1 square foot of shelter built
200 tabs = 1 person's clean water for a year

You basically have nothing to do except click for it to add the extension, then every tab it opens will count toward your total. At the end of each day, you choose the charity you want your tabs to count toward.

It doesn't keep a record of your browsing history. It simply counts tabs opened.

So please, please, please, if you have Google Chrome: install this.

Interested in being a mod?

Just to test the waters;
are any of you members interested in helping to maintain this community?
I would like to start getting it active again. I'm sure some of the reason for the silence is due to Atlantis being over and the mods being absent, but I know that isn't the whole reason.
I'm hoping to get challenges started and encourage posting.
However, both emily_reich and I remain very busy, and it would be great to have a third and maybe fourth mod onboard to act as a replacement for one of us from time to time and to bring fresh activity to the comm.
If you are interested in this position, please respond to this post. Comments are screened.

This is to check if anyone is interested. A more formal response than 'pick me' will be required further along the line ;)


Also, in a somewhat unusual move *given how rubbish I've been* I just opened a good NCIS icons comm (well it's not open yet, I just created the comm.
During my hiatus with no internet/no computer/no laptop, I fell in love with NCIS.
I've been looking for good NCIS comms, and have only been able to find purged journals.
It would be greatly appreciated if any of you could point me in the direction of good NCIS iconmakers.
I am also looking for one or two comods for the new community.
If you are interested, feel free to respond in this post or over at my journal.
