So, I have recently returned to LJ and I was poking around swingathon  because it has been so very long and there were some amazing fics posted for our exchange! I noticed, however, that my last post in this community was a promise of a second round that never came to fruition and for that I wanted to apologize! This apology is about two years late but I myself am very sad when communities die or people disappear from LJ and since over 100 people still watch the community I figure I'd offer my explanation.

Many people had commented that they wanted to postpone the second round a little bit as there were a lot of holiday exchanges going on and I thought that was an excellent point so in my head I decided to hold off on moving forward until January of 2009. Well, guess what happened about a week into January? My computer stopped turning on. I was in Germany at the time, where there was no nearby Apple store, so I had to go somewhere else for the repairs and even though the computer was under warranty they told me because it had scratches they figured I dropped it and therefore the my warranty was void. They made me pay 50 euro for an estimate and then told me it would be 1200 euro to fix a computer that had cost that much in dollars when I first bought it two years earlier. Needless to say, I did not pay to get it repaired and so my computer remained out of commission until April when I went back to the US  for a visit, where they fixed completely free of charge in less than a week! Anyways, I know I am being completely long winded, but after having only been able to check my email just about once per week at a ridiculously over priced internet cafe I hardly even knew what to do with a computer anymore. I checked LJ intermittently but I had lost interest in it for the most part and I had completely forgotten about my post in this community. I am so sad because I know we could have had a fantastic round two and I should have at least taken a moment to hand the reigns over to someone else.

So, once again my sincerest and incredibly overdue apologies. At this point I am certain no one is going crazy as to why this community died but I figured I would post something as a courtesy to anyone who meandered by and happened to be curious!

It's time for round two! That is, if people are interested. Leave a comment with thoughts/suggestions. I have a kind of crazy idea, but I want to hear what other people think. Also, I need another mod! Actually, maybe two. I HAVE BIG PLANS. hehe. It would be great if you were interested if you left a comment and a few words on your modding abilities, that can be anything from graphics to lots of free time or simply a desperate need to mod this community. the latter will be weighted the most heavily! i want to get the mods settled sometime today or tomorrow so we can have a meeting and discuss the GREATNESS that is about to happen if people are willing! so msn and/or aim is a huge plus!! also please leave an email address!

One question I pose to y'all is: How do you feel about contests? Like teams and points and winners? Should we keep the competitive aspect out of it, or would some of you find that fun? I think I would....

Let me know!
