Closing a chapter and opening a new one.

Well, that’s that.  As of a few days ago, I am no longer welcome at the message boards.

It was a long and twisty road that lead to this point, and I will probably go back and do a post-mortem of where I feel the problems with’s culture first set in, and of the events leading up to my banning, but for now, it’s enough to say that I’m gone.

I’d been a member of for over a decade, with over five thousand posts.  I’ve written a fair amount there that I’m quite proud of.  My largest and longest-running project has been a Where I Read project on Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar books.  I’ve done a series of recaps for completed books here already; since this ban caught me in the middle of a book, I’ll probably go on to just continue my WIR for that book in the same format, then pause and evaluate what the best way to continue will be.

Now I just need to find out if there’s a handy guide to WordPress-specific HTML out there.  Like, are there tags like there used to be for Livejournal? I’d love to have an lj-cut equivalent tag to make the many large posts not clutter my feed.

Well, I do my best learning when I’m having to adapt to something unexpected.  Watch this space.  I should have my next WIR bit up shortly, as well as a one-stop index to the What Has Gone Before bits.
