Code push scheduled for Sunday night

We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT / 3am UTC on Sunday, Apr 30 (or May 1 for you transatlantic types.).

I don't have a list of changes for you yet, but most will fall into the following categories: things users have complained about to support volunteers, things support volunteers have complained about to developers, things [staff profile] denise has complained about not working the way she expects them to (and as we all know, The Boss is Always Right), and things that were printing warnings over and over in the production server logs, making it hard to spot when less frequent, more urgent errors were being printed. Oh, and also all the unused code I ripped out at the roots, which if you notice that, I did it wrong.

To sum up: we are rolling out a bunch of requested changes, so thank you all for your feedback!

If you're new to Dreamwidth and interested in tracking our development process, our commit logs are published to [site community profile] changelog and [community profile] changelog_digest, and every month or so, one of our volunteers will translate those often-cryptic entries into witty, informative code tours! The most recent one was published on April 1, so we're about due for a new one. Hint, hint.

We'll update here again to let you know when the code push is imminent!

Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: watercolours
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a

Why this piece is awesome: This work does a great job depicting these three pilots as they would look as young adults. I'm particularly fond of Wufei and his no-nonsense attitude. And the colouring is just lovely.

Suspiria: Raspberry Swirl by se42

[personal profile] aurumcalendula posting in [community profile] vidrecs
Vid Title: Raspberry Swirl
Vidder: se42
Fandom: Suspiria
Summary: Suzy enrolls in a prestigious dance academy, befriends a girl named Sarah, and uncovers an ancient evil. (Or, welcome to evil dance school.)
Reccer's Comments: This is very cool and really well done! I love the use of color and how the cutting never lets up (and it kind of makes me want to watch the source despite not being fond of horror movies).

Fandom: Riverdale
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Archie
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Nefyria on DA
Why this piece is awesome: This is an excellent, strong painting of Archie, looking moody and haunted. I really like the muted colours that fit the mood, and the 'tangled' texture and brush strokes. Click for the full effect.

Vid Title: Stayin Low!
Vidder: Hollywoodgrrl
Fandom: Aliens series
Summary: Hopin' she can sock it to me one mo' time.
Reccer's Comments: I was inspired to post this by the last vid recced also being an Aliens fanvid! Stayin' Low is one of my favorite fanvids, full stop. Bouncy, kinetic, wonderfully cut, and seamlessly combining 4 movies to create an incredible portrait of Ripley, one of the original sci-fi badasses. I cannot say enough good things about this vid or this vidder! If you like the Aliens series and have not already seen this, you really, really should.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have ONE volunteer reccer who signed up for May with this fandom:

* Yuri on Ice ([personal profile] ceares)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in May, it would of course be awesome if we had some more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far only ONE reccer has volunteered for June, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for May, June or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of April. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Pinch Hit #7 - Claimed!

Still some hours before the rest are due, but the deadline for this one is Wednesday 26. April, 17:00 GMT (exactly 48 hours after the rest of the gifts). Claim by commenting on this post with your AO3 username. Everyone is allowed to claim a pinch hit, regardless of whether or not they're signed up for the exchange.
