Breaking news - Mod post - MUST READ, IMPORTANT.  
I'm going to try and make this short.

It has come to my attention that there is already a claims community on livejournal. Since they were here first, I discussed it with them and I have come to the decisions that any and all fictional character claims will now be directed to iam_the.

I will still be accepting any other kind of claim, just not fictional characters. I'm sorry. Some people may be angry about this, and if you are, remember a few things: 1) Breathe. 2) It's just the internet. A claim don't really mean that much.

I'm still seeing about if I'm keeping the old claims, because it'd be a bit unfair to you guys to just delete them all, and I'll let you know when I know. But any fictional character claims that come in (even ones sitting in the queue right now) will be rejected

I had no idea that iam_the existed before yesterday, in case you were wondering.

I would highly suggest that if your claim you have here is still available there, you go post it over there. That means your options right now are:

1) Wait until I find out if I can keep the old claims
2) Claim your character that you have here, over there, provided it is still available (highly recommended. Please let me know if you do this so I can start deleting some posts)
3) If the character(s) you want are not available, you can still make a claim here for Actors, Actresses, Musicians, pretty much anyone (Because of the Everyone Else category)

Any questions?

ETA: If you already have a fictional character claim here that's taken at iam_the, you can still keep it over here. I still highly suggest that if your claim is not taken at iam_the that you go claim it over there.

I hope you keep the old ones because in that comm all the ones I want are already taken. :(

It's up to them, really. I think it would be fair just to keep the ones I have an not accept any new ones, but I'm guessing they probably want me to delete all mine.

Yeah... but well, it's internet there are always more than one of a kind. ^^

Yup, I know! But they were here first. So it's up to them. I think the fairest thing to do would be to cross check the claims and whoever got to it earlier gets it, but that would take way way too long to do.

If that's what you'd like to do! If it's a fictional character, you still have to go over there ;)

They said it was up to me, so if you want to keep your old claim here, that's fine.

Thanks for the info. Luckily my claim was still available over there :)

That's great, glad it was still available over there!

Well I guess I can just wait to see what happens. If my claim ends up being deleted I'll just make a new one :)

Thanks for the notification.

Yup! I noticed that Alice was already taken over there, it's a shame.

They told me it was up to me, so you can keep it!

I don't see why it would matter if there is more than one claim comm. There are more than one comm's for tv shows, movies, actors, etc. It's just a comm and as long as you claim it on this one and not the other it shouldn't matter. :)

I know you're trying to be nice, but people aren't that way when starting another show comm. They just do it. :)

I see your point, but this isn't a community about a show/movie/actor, so it's not really the same thing. there doesn't need to be more than one, and it's better if there's only one.

Good thing I'm not running a community for a show then, I guess. (Although I would not handle one for a show in the same way.)

Okay. Oh well, I liked this one. I just won't worry about a new comm.

Yup. They were here first though, so it's only fair.

I've talked it over with them, so if your claim is taken over there you can still keep it over here, if you want.
open yourself up to joysometimescrazy on July 23rd, 2008 07:08 pm (UTC)
Cool. :)

Not sure, but either way, I don't want claims all over LJ. Yours was cute and I wanted to support your comm, so i'm good. :)

If you claimed over there it would be deleted over here ;) Thanks

it's cool. I wont cry if you delete my claim. XD

I've made a post over there, I guess you can delete mine :)
forwardishforwardish on July 31st, 2008 06:19 pm (UTC)
my character over there is not there and I made the claim here...
are you going to still keep that option open, as a category?
Or does it now go into "Everyone Else"?

I claimed to be the River Tam of livejournal.

If you already had a fictional character over here that is claimed over there, you can keep it over here. I don't have it listed on the profile because anyone new that comes along can't claim a fictional character, so linking to the list is pretty pointless (it's still there, though.)

Hi! Can you keep mine here? I'm the Hermione Granger over here, but since they don't have tags and I don't have time to go through them all, so it would be easier to keep it here! Thanks :D

Yup, no need to ask! all the claim posts are still there unless they ask me to delete them/I see they took the claim over there. It's probably taken over there, too

Are you going to start accepting fictional characters since iam_the hasn't been used for a year ? Just wondering.
(and honestly sorry about the spam of comments I've sent you.)
