Moderation: ON  
Due to an unfortunate recent spam incident (apologies to anyone that saw it, and thanks to everyone who sent me a head-up -- I'm way behind on reading anything on LJ these days), I'm changing this community to moderated posts only. I considered shutting off posting entirely, since I'm not sure there's anything left to be said that wouldn't be better said in the current and/or general WorldCon communities, but you know, just in case.

Of course, that means I have to approve any postings from here on, which (given my somewhat ridiculous current workload) might mean some delay at times, but c'est la vie, I suppose.

Thank you for removing that spam. They have been hitting a number of community groups lately.

Do LJ Comms allow co-moderators? I'd be happy to help out, if that makes it easier for you...

Nah, it's not any work -- there's been, what, one post all year? It's actually more work to add a moderator (since I'd have to spend a few minutes figuring it out) than to just leave it as it is, otherwise I would just give you access.

It's really more of an FYI than anything.

Thanks for the quick action.

Of course, since the convention was over in 2008, is it worth keeping the LiveJournal alive? I have archival con Website up (http://www.fanac.org/Denvention3), but the LiveJournal has been pretty much dead for the last year.

Well, I think the easiest thing (at the moment) is just to leave it; if it started getting any significant amount of attempted spam, at that point I might shut off all new posts completely; so far, this has been it.

I don't think I should delete it, however (I'm not even sure I can). Having the old posts around doesn't hurt anything, and someone somewhere might find it useful somehow.

i didn't see the spam, but, y'know, as part of the ex-BOD let me tell you that Denvention3 is over and done with. Board disbanded, accounts closed. Go ahead and delete the list.

Well, this isn't a mailing list, it's is a LJ community; if I delete it, the content is gone. They posts aren't mine or yours (well, most of them, anyway), they belong to the people who posted them, and I'm not willing to unilaterally delete other people's content without their permission -- it does no harm to leave it, but deletion invites possible internet drama.

Besides, nobody's ever deleted any of the other communities from previous WorldCons; there's a precedent for just leaving it alone.

[Accordingly, I can still approve your post if you like, but I kind of recommend against it.]
