Hi guys, just in case people still visit our old LJ community, this is a notice that our community center is no longer at LJ.

Our main community site is located at http://amassment.org

And our Forums (where most of our activities and social aspects are) is located at http://board.amassment.org

The LJ community here will only serve as an archive of our old community activities, and no new posts will be made.

Thank you.

As some of you may know, Amy Marie (alexielnet) of alexiel.net, a member of our community, was suddenly diagnosed with adrenal cancer since the middle of last year. It was a rare type of cancer that spread to her lungs and had a 25-35% survival rate. It was shocking to see this happen so suddenly to a woman who had a lot to live for, like continuing her studies of Chinese. The 8th of this month would have been her birthday.

Not too long ago she bid us farewell on the forums, and for those who are wondering what happened to her, I'm afraid I have terrible news to give: she died on November 30, 2012 at 3:15 PM. Amy's family has decided to leave her domain alexiel.net up.

I'd like to thank Amy for all that she has done for this community and my condolences go to her loved ones. It hurts to see her life cut so tragically short. Amy was a very kind woman who was more than an inspiration to many, a longtime shrine maker, and a frequent participant of our events: she was also very understanding, creative, and determined. She was made Member of the Month of August 2011 for her contributions.

Thank you and goodbye, Amy. Flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

Want to give your shrine a new look with a fresh spin? Here at Amassment's second layout swap marathon, you can give your website a special touch by making and receiving a layout from another member! The layout swap marathon was a highly enjoyed event back in 2009 (then manned by Lorelei of piratejewel.net and Chrissy of reflera.org and is back at the request of many members. It's a fun way to get to know other members, try something new, and be creative!

In honor of National Literature Month, we are holding a Paperback Marathon! In this marathon, we will be making websites related to any storytelling medium. In the words of fellow staff member Sofia:

Though many of us love them, there are very few fansites online dedicated to written mediums. People are more likely to shrine characters they can access from their video game consoles and televisions. Because of this, some really great characters and series are overlooked online, despite how much we love them. We hope to pay tribute to some of them with this year's Winter marathon at Amassment. We want to see more tributes to Paperback fandoms! With this marathon, challenge yourself to make sites to subjects from books, comics, and mangas.

Shrine Spotlight, also known as Site of the Month (SOTM), has been moved to Amassment.Org! The concept is still the same: Each month our community picks an outstanding shrine or fansite to promote based on a volunteer's selection from member submissions. This fansite will be featured at the Directory's Shrine Spotlight page and the Forum's Shrine Spotlight subforum.

New Nomination System
To nominate a fansite for the award, simply fill out the [Site of the Month Nomination Form] at the directory, one form for each shrine nomination. Once you have made a nomination, it will be placed in our nominations queue, and you need not nominate the same shrine again. Your nomination will be removed from the queue only when that shrine has been selected for Shrine Spotlight.

Rewards and Perks
The owner of the Shrine Spotlight fansite will receive the customary promotion, award image, and permanent place on the Winners List. Volunteers will receive forum coins each time they participate in choosing the featured shrine. Nominators will receive coins for each nomination submitted, and additional coins if their nomination wins, so write your reasons for nomination well!

Look out for additional rewards for Shrine Spotlight participation in the future. Thank you for continuing to acknowledge and celebrate these outstanding fansites. Now go nominate your favorite shrines!

Hello guys! Finally, it's time to reveal August's SOTM! :D Apologies for the delay!

Thanks a lot to the people who nominated the shrines, namely Mikari, Vii and Saya.

So, without further ado, I present you Amassment's August 2012 SOTM!

Hello, everyone! Thank you to all participants who signed up. If you're teamed up with someone you've been in the same group with before, or someone you know pretty well, let me know ASAP. The point of this activity is for people to get to know each other.

We have an odd number of people who signed up this year, so there's a team of 3 (unless Todd wants to drop out like he originally suggested to keep teams even). Not a lot of people seem to be active on LiveJournal anymore so I may have missed some account names on my list.

Annnnnd your groupsCollapse )

You can LiveJournal PM me, or comment on this post with team (or, to be exact, "partner") arrangements. All comments will be screened. Thank you for understanding!

See you on September 3!!

Greetings Amassment members,

You may have noticed the incredible drop in activity here, this is because we were making the transition to our own domain and forums! This move is for the best, for the past few weeks we have been testing and getting the forums up and running smoothly. It's been great! So now we are inviting you to make this move with us to board.amassment.org! All events, sotm, motm, and posts are now at the forums. Join us this weekend for the party and get a special badge for your collection a the forum!

Livejournal has been very unreliable and for most of us here (myself included) we keep LJ accounts just to keep up with amassment or other communities. We feel this transition is for the best!

Also, you will notice Amassment.org is now up! For those of you who have been in the community for a while know that this has been a long term project and we are excited to unveil it. Everything amassment related will now be at this domain. We hope you will be joining in this new chapter with us!
