Sticky Post
The purpose of this community is to organize volunteer efforts to index filled AND unfilled prompts at the st_xi_kink meme, which has been closed as of 01/10/09.

Volunteering
Calls for indexers go up periodically; once you spot a claim post you can comment to claim several pages of your very own to index and love! Please note that this can be a very time-intensive process and will require you to maintain your section until the post has reached 10,000 comments, so be aware of your own limitations. That said, we completely understand that real life comes first, so if you find that you are unable to look after the section you have claimed, just let us know and we will pass it on to another indexer.

Volunteers who have claimed a portion to index will receive the password to the st_xi_kink and/or st_xi_kinkunfilled delicious accounts by PM. If you have access to both accounts, please double-check which one you are signed into before you begin bookmarking. Please also make certain that you are bookmarking the correct section.

General Public
If you spot an unfilled prompt that has been indexed in the filled prompt account by mistake, please drop us a line and let us know!

As all sections are (theoretically) being continually updated, for the time being there is no need to alert us to now-filled prompts that are still indexed in the unfilled prompt account.

Questions can be directed to malo_malo.

Thaaank you everyone, and happy indexing! ♥

new kink meme
so_black_birds
So, hello! I'm started a new kink meme,you can find it here: http://stxi-kinkmeme.livejournal.com/  Please support me!

delicious and the future
a delicious obsession
pollyrepeat
As a lot of you have no doubt heard by now, it seems that Yahoo, in its infinite wisdom, has decided to "sunset" Delicious. They are shutting it down. This has been confirmed by more than one source, including former Delicious staff member Britta. According to Britta, this means that the situation will likely resemble what happened with Geocities: "There are no details yet on when or how, from any of my sources inside Yahoo. It could be months or years - although they'll almost certainly announce it ahead of time (at some point)..."

What does this mean for the st_xi_kink account? Well, it means that it's time to start heading for the fire exits in a calm and orderly fashion. First, and perhaps most importantly, while Delicious will soon no longer be with us, there should be warning. Hopefully, there will be enough time to evaluate the options that are out there.

What are those options? From various chatter on Twitter, LJ, and Delicious itself, Pinboard seems to be emerging as the clear leader. Problematically, it requires a one-time flat fee to open an account, which is steadily rising as more users join. Other options include Diigo (please note there has been talk about security issues and less-than-perfect Delicious importation) and possibly evernote.

There is also ongoing discussion regarding the creation of a specifically fan-friendly Delicious clone here.

The servers for Diigo and Pinboard are both being hammered right now, but it shouldn't be necessary to immediately import the meme bookmarks. We do still have a backup! malo_malo will have an HTML copy of the Delicious account that was exported early this afternoon. This gives you time to look at the different options, and maybe get in contact with the maintainers of other large community Delicious accounts and see which direction the wind is blowing. In the meantime, bookmarking business should be able to continue as usual until another home as found, and a backup of the account will need to be made on a regular basis.

Regretfully, due to RL concerns I would not have enough time to assist in this transition with anything approaching regularity, and so I am removing myself as a maintainer of this community. I have been in contact with malo_malo, who will still be around and will be looking after things in the interim. We know there are still active volunteers, so if anyone wants to step up to spearhead this move, please leave a comment to this post and message malo_malo directly.

Kink Meme Closure
doooom
pollyrepeat
As I'm sure most of you are aware by now, the original st_xi_kink meme has been officially, completely closed. Not unexpectedly, a new one has been created elsewhere (at st_xi_kink_meme for those of you who don't feel like wading through the comments of the closure post).

What does that mean for our indexing efforts? I think as far as this comm is concerned we will still strive to continue/complete indexing for the original kink meme - but that will be as far as it goes. Now that the meme has been closed we are no longer in a race to keep up; and although I would love for the delicious index to eventually be complete, that is probably far in the future.

The new meme has an index in place at st_xi_kink_meme. I don't know if it's collaborative or who is in charge of that effort, but if anyone stopping by here is interested in indexing for them I suggest contacting the mod of the new meme. Our community is still looking for a few more people to index the last two parts of the original kink meme, so maybe give us a hand before dashing off to the new one? :P

Thank you for all your hard work, guys; the sheer amount of time and manpower that went into this effort has been truly astounding.

Apologies for all the delays, guys. Between moving and school things got pretty hectic - and judging by the way things have slowed down both here and over at the meme itself, I'm guessing a lot of you are in the same boat. :P

With that in mind, I think we're going to put unfilled prompts on the backburner for the time being so that we can concentrate on the stuff that's been filled, as we are a bit behind at the moment. So without further ado:

Filled Prompts

PART 14
Pages 1 - 20
Pages 21 - 40
Pages 40 - close

PART 15
Pages 1 - 20
Pages 21 - 40
Pages 40 - close

We are looking for indexers for the following sections:

FILLED
Part 12
Pages 1 through 20
Pages 21 through 40
Pages 41 to close

UNFILLED
Most of part 10 (pages 1-40), and all of parts 11 and 12.

malo_malo is currently on vacation and I am in the middle of a fairly significant move/general life upheaval that is proving to be more hectic than previously anticipated. I will still attempt to be around to answer questions and give out passwords, but there will probably be a wee bit of a lag, particularly for trouble-shooting. Situation normal should resume in a couple of weeks. Thanks guys!

We are looking for indexers for parts 3, 10, and 11. Comment here to claim a section and the appropriate password will be PM'd to you if needed.


Filled
Part 3
Unfortunately, one of our indexers has had computer issues and has relinquished her claim on her section. So! We are looking for an indexer for filled prompts for Pages 24 to 46. It's to be treated as a completely new section - whoever volunteers to index this will need to go through the whole section from beginning to end.


Part 11
Pages 1 through 20
Pages 21 through 40
Pages 41 to close


Unfilled
Part 10
Pages 1 through 20
Pages 21 through 40
Pages 41 to close

Part 11
Pages 1 through 20
Pages 21 through 40
Pages 41 to close


As always, we would like to remind all new/potential indexers to take a look at our sticky post (at the top of the "recent entries" page) to familiarize themselves with our FAQ and guidelines. Once you've finished the first go-through, please remember to check on your section periodically and update the delicious accounts accordingly.

I am moving a considerable distance next week (part 1 of 2) and will be largely unreachable from August 8th-11th, so anything that comes up during that time and is directed to me rather than malo_malo will have a bit of a delay before you receive an answer.

Thanks, guys! Next claims post in about a week.

Thanks, guys! Unless the rate at which the kink meme is progressing changes, expect another claims post around August 3rd.

Hey guys, looks like it's that time again! Part nine, zomg. Once again, we are looking for indexers for filled AND unfilled prompts for the entirety of part nine. Comment to claim a section (or more than one), and if you do not already have the password for the relevant delicious account it will be PM'd to you.

Pages 1-20, filled and unfilled
Pages 21-40, filled and unfilled
Pages 41-close, filled and unfilled

(Okay, seriously you guys, part nine went up on Wednesday and it's already up to 46 pages. At this rate, look for part 10 claims soon!)

ETA:

All filled sections have been claimed! We are still looking for indexers for the unfilled sections of part nine, as well as unfilled prompts for Part 8, pages 41 to close.
