Let's make a little difference...  
Hey, gang. You know how fed up you get with fandom wank sometimes? I know I do. But here's a small thing we can do that might cause a bigger ripple.

Spearheaded by honeylocusttree, this Thunderclap is a way we can potentially shine a light on being KIND instead of crotchety towards each other in fandom.

Being a part of a fandom can impact your life far more than expected. We find ourselves relating to the characters more deeply, we meet folks that turn into genuine friends, we participate in charity events that make the world better, spurred on by our fandom relations...see how it goes? But it can get vitriolic too, for a whole host of reasons.

This simple reminder, trying to take one day to sit back and do nothing but be patient and tolerant and wank-free, is a step in the right direction. That's all it is! No donations, no nuthin' but a promise to can the wank for one...single...day.

Easy, right? July 12 is that day. Sign up HERE.

Done, will not be a hardship for me though. Sonce I live by the rule if you have nothing nice to say, keep your pie hole shut. XD

Thanks for sharing. I hope more people sign up for it.

But I'm NEVER bitchy or sarcastic, bb! :P

ONE DAY, you noodle! You can do eeeet... ;)

Why limit the pledge to a single day? It shouldn't be that hard to keep our fecking mouths shut - wank is unacceptable on any day. Still, a day of SPN love is a great idea.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on June 14th, 2014 11:37 am (UTC)
AGREED. But I like critique and railing as much as the next person...I get it! For one day, though, I can pointedly curtail all negativity and cajole others to do the same. :D

Well the idea is to raise awareness and get people to think consciously about it.

Ideally it should be every day, but sometimes people need a little reminder and encouragement.

Aye, sad but true. And there is no harm in trying to foster a positive vibe!

This is cool, can I ask a dumb question? How does it work? I noticed I can add a comment or picture, so will it be one post with everyone's comments on it? Sorry never used this site before.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on June 14th, 2014 11:45 am (UTC)
Huh, yanno Becc, I've been viewing Thunderclap on my iPad and I think it's an abbreviated version of the whole site, so I'm not sure about the uploading pics thing! The basic goal is to pledge ONE DAY towards simply not indulging in or tolerating wank in the SPN fandom, and then the hope from there is that we realize how angry and negative we've been (as a unit) and rethink out actions in the future. You've been consistently lovely, so this event isn't aimed at you, but at the SPN fanDom as a whole. I'll look it into!

Thanks :) I think I kinda get it though, I had a poke around to see what it's about. From what I understand on the day it will post the image and caption offered by the organiser (the default image you agree to), but if I wanted to add something personal then I could, but it's not like a giant post that has everyone's personal messages added, which is what I was thinking. Long story short, it's a great idea and I joined :) Thanks for posting about it!

Oh god, when I first read this, I thought you said "No doughnuts, no nuthin'" instead of "no donations" and I was like BUT WHY NOT? D;

Anyway, yes!! :D Thank you for advertising amnesty day--I saw that "social reach" number quadruple and I was like omg lol & yayyyy~<3

DOUGHNUTS FOR FANDOM PEACE. IT'S A GOOD THING.

Thank YOU for spreading the word, bb! :D
