 Post subject: If the Kitty is _home_ , where do you vacation?
PostPosted: Thu Mar 28, 2002 10:40 am 


I'm nosy.
It's a terrible thing, but I manage to keep it under control, with a little medication and some electro-shock therapy. (Mmmmmmm.... Electro-shock therapy....)
But, when there ain't no new Buffy to keep my cat-killing mind occupied, I start to get... nosy again....

So, anyways, I'm curious. Where do you lurk or post, when you aren't here? I'm mostly interested in posting boards and email lists, but I'll take what I can get.
I'd also like to know how many people here are WillTara refugees. Do you still lurk/post there? Were you ever there? Have you abandoned it to hang out here?

So, really, where do you live when you aren't at home...?

I'm a WillTara expat, who lurks around Television without Pity, and occasionally slashdot.

I'm not sure I understand the question correctly, but I'm gonna try to hit you with an answer ...

When I'm not here (hence, the kitty not being home), I'm usually checking out my Yahoo! mail. I'm on a zillion lists (all slash b/c I'm a but like that) and have to check my mail nearly constantly.

If not there, then I am ... hmm ... oh! I spend TOO MUCH time checking out cool things for my W/T Sims. Those girls have it all! (I've been looking at coffin beds for Spike ... they are really hilarious).

So, if I'm not here, I'm checking my mail (and yes, I'm on WillTara) or looking to set the Sim W/T up with some groovy stuff.

Yeah. So. I hope that was what you meant.

Yeah.

Okay, bye. JD

interesting question. i will look forward to seeing the answers.
the Kitty Board is definately my favorite place to be. the only other posting board i go to is The Buffy Cross and Stake. good times.
my favorite e-mail list has got to be the Scully_Reyes group on yahoo. lots of yummy slash fic staring my two favorite X-Files women!

I love this site.

And I also love message boards. So, when I'm not lurking here, I go to my facorite Brazilian newsgroups at UOL. Oh, and I like to chat by e-mail too, so I'm constantly checking my yahoomail.

I post very infrequently on the Cross and Stake and Angel's Soul boards under a different username. I used to be a member of The Watchers' Diary, which is the posting board of buffyguide.com, till various things (not least the fact that I'd been there for 2 years and was getting tired of participating in the same discussions over and over again) led to my leaving.
I was a member of the WillTara list for quite some time (mostly as a lurker), till one day I said something nice about Riley in reply to another poster, who then publicly accused me of sending them abusive email and telling them to leave the group (which I most certainly did not), at which point I decided that it wasn't worth the hassle and unsubscribed. I haven't been back since, mainly b/c - to put it tactfully - I feel that the list doesn't have strong enough administration to crack down on trolls and abusive people.
I really like The Friday Thing, which is a UK-centric site with some excellent forums, on which I also post as tyche.
Finally, I run a Wesley group over at Yahoo!, which takes up a lot of my time.
Shameless self-promotion ahead: any Wesley-loving kitties are more than welcome to join.
And that's 'bout it.

Neat question because maybe I can find new places to hang out!

I started out on the WillTara list and have migrated here because I like the diverse range of topics here (ie. this one). I also think this board rocks because everyone seems so nice on it. I still lurk on WillTara though and occasionally post. Other than here I am on Television w/out Pity (they kill me), PlanetOut, and I stop by KimandKerry.com, Whoosh, and surf covertly since I do this all at work....

Shhhhh...

* Oh yeah this is also the only place where I could find Lisa Countryman's updated story so I HAD to come here just for that!

I was a Cross & Stake regular before the Kitten was started, and I still go back there every now and then. I've also been known to make a post or two at Hannigan.com.

Administration? What's that like? I've always wondered whether WillTara ever had moderators, or if it spun out of control, or if they intentionally keep a (very) low profile....

  I asked this because I saw an amusing thing over the weekend (Well, amusing to me. Less so to the people involved.) My roommate frequented a posting board which was populated by people about as devoted as we are. (Maybe. Ok, not really.) She pretty much "lived" there, in that it was where she spent 90% of her net time.
  It wasn't as peaceful a place as the kitty board, however, and the moderator pulled the plug over the weekend; with the message "If you can't play nice, you won't play at all." Seems there had been a lot of flaming and cliquish-ness recently, so he got sick of it and expressed his displeasure in the most final way.
  I thought it was amusing, because such a thing would never happen here. [1] But it is kind of pathetic, too (in the sense of "pathos inducing", rather than the common connotation of "mildly disgusting") because I see my roomie and others scrambling to find "a new home".

Community and the net. It's a curious thing.
It bears thinking about.

--
revision_Johanna (-Black belt in idle speculation)

[1] It would nver happen here, of course, for the following reasons:
a) Kitties never fight. Never ever. And if they do, it's by accident. And they apologize immediately. (Or the moderators kill all involved, clean up the mess, bury the evidence, and erase the memmories of all involved.) Because Kitties don't fight.
b)Strong, Fair, and Present moderators. Our mods work hard to keep this place a haven. Look at the number of posts which are essentially "I have never said this before, but I feel comfortable enough to say it here." They (and the minions) protect this place from trolls, flamers and just plain nasty people. And they do it so well, most of the time no one really notices. (Sorta like the shire and the rangers...)
c) Decentralized control. Yeah, the mods are dictators, with tyranical powers (in the ancient Athenian sense of "tyrant") and that is good. But there is a bunch of them, and there is a sense of "checks and balances". We won't have a "rogue moderator" take us all down. Plus- that whole "Backup board" thing....
d)Strong sense of community ownership. Most Kitties feel that they are members of the board as a whole, rather than to some small subgroup. That's probably the most important element of all. When a community fragments, and subgroups divide into non-overlapping memberships... that's when feelings get hurt and things get ugly.
e) and, lastly, an almost fantical devotion to the Pope.

Wasn't there some sort of lesbian storyline on the X-Files recently? We've only just got Season 8 on this side of the pond, so I don't know.
www.hannigan.com is my actual home, but it's down now, so I hang around here, and at www.alysonhannigancorner.com, and on the Buffy board at Television Without Pity (gotta love that Deep Bitterness Society thread!).

My favourite Buffy reviews site is http://www.enteract.com/~perridox/SunS/episodes.html - unjustly underrated stuff. Non-Buffy sites I enjoy include www.onion.com, www.tvgohome.com and www.us.imdb.com.

If not there, then I am ... hmm ... oh! I spend TOO MUCH time checking out cool things for my W/T Sims. Those girls have it all! (I've been looking at coffin beds for Spike ... they are really hilarious).

-----------

I have the coffin bed, though Spike doesn't sleep in it - him and Buffy have the vibrating bed, as do Dawn and Groosalug from AtS. It's shippy heaven in my Sims houses! I've got W/T (Willow is a skin I downloaded that's supposed to be Rose from Titanic, but looks nothing like her) X/A (just because), B/S (my main ship) D/G and the Evil house - I have evil people there. I definitely spend too much time with my Sims - I had Buffy decide that the evil bloke was too evil and she had to kill him. she made a Frankenstein potion, drank it, broke a telly when Monstered-out and then seduced the evil guy into marrying her while Spike was asleep. Then when i had control of the guy I made him fix the telly and he died. Why didn't I just go over to his house and make him swim all night or something? I must be insane.

I'm usually over at the Big Bad board or jamesmarsters.com when I'm not here.

Cross and Stake is the only other Buffy board I regularly post to. I enjoy lurking at MBTV sometimes but don't usually post there (mostly for West Wing rather than Buffy, though.)

BTW, anyone else see WW last night? With it's LemonLyman.com subplot? Guess that actually happened to Aaron Sorkin when he posted at MBTV. No one believed it was him at first, and they were downright ruthless before finding out that, yes, it *was* actually him.

I mainly hang around the kitten, like the proverbial bad smell.

However, when I do venture beyond the board, I tend to stay on Buffy related sites. I like going to Cross and Stake occasionally, just to shake my head and tut, heh. I visit the UPN site sometimes to get the new promos. Apart from that, my list is pretty predictable; Extra Flamey is a pretty regular haunt of mine.

I've been known to lurk at other sites though...but I'm not telling you which ones.

When I'm not at the Kitten I usually lurk at the Cross and Stake Spoiler Board, and I enjoy reading fiction at Extra Flamey site. I do sometimes post at the WillTara list, but I'm not too keen at the site. It just seems that a great deal of people don't seem to enjoy Willow and Tara for a site that's suppossed to be dedicated to their ship. Also I have trouble with some of the stories posted there. Meaning, I come there to read stories about W&T as a couple not Willow and Tara with someone else.

I pretty much just stay around here. There are a few other places I've lurked at for a little while, but I never stay long. This place is just so damn special that no other board comes even close. Other internet time is spent checking mail, watching movie trailers online, reading the news ...

Anya: What capital? I never know what you're talking about. Loo, shag, brolly, what the hell is all that?
Giles: What? There's no way that you could remember me saying any of those words.

Well I originally lived at the Buffy board at fanforum.com, but a link directed me to the Kitty board and now I only rarely visit there. Other than these boards the only other board I go to is MBTV/www.televisionwithoutpity.com and also read there recaps.

Other sites I go to are yahoo mail, Perky Bitches site, Extraflamey, though the Different coloured pens is kinda changing that 'cause I just go there for fanfic now, and of course not to forget Psych for the Shooting Scripts.

I'm not really a fan of yahoo clubs so I've never really frequented the willtara club.

Really the Kitty Board takes up all of my net time and whatever other free time I have I check out links that people recommend on this board - if you'e put a link up, then I've most probably visted it...so keep on whorin' 'em!!

Well this is the only Buffy board I take part in. Unless you count the discussion board for the new Buffy RPG from Eden. http://pub51.ezboard.com/bedenstudiosdiscussionboards

Mind you. The regulars, such as they are, are a great bunch. But there is a large number of Trolls and the signal to noise ratio is high.

When I am not here I am off over at my host's board, PlanetADnD, cause I am such a gamer geek.

And I hang out on the d20/Open Gaming lists and debate copyright issues. Dull huh. Well those are more or less industry ones for me, I come here to relax!

Let's see... I started my obsession with W/T on the WillTara list, but I haven't browsed through that in almost two years. The funny thing is that I'm still subscribed, which goes to show how lazy I am...

Other than the Kitty, I post every so often on the Buffy Cross & Stake spoiler board (www.angelicslayer.com/TBCS/) as, you guessed it, JBC ... but usually only when the topic focuses on W, T or W/T.

Now, I lurk at the All Things Philosophical on BtVS board (www.altpovtvs.com) because of all the though-provoking discussion that never fails to really get the wheels turning upstairs, you know? It's a refreshing alternative to some of the other knee-jerk reaction boards...

Lastly, I always visit the Sunnydale Slayers Web site for the excellent reviews. Its webmistress, Perri, gets extra points because of her unabashed support for Amber Benson AND Tara.
