Things to Do on Dreamwidth

(For all the people who have recently created or rediscovered DW accounts and are wondering what to do next. Please don't take this as a suggestion that you should be there. I'm not trying to convert people; I'm just offering suggestions to the people who are looking around there anyway. Personally, I plan to continue cross-posting to both sites as long as I have friends on both.)

First, there's a friending meme going on right now, in case you're looking to expand your reading list. Second, [personal profile] colls has pointed me toward this list of other DW comms that people might find interesting.

And some other things.

(Multi-)Fannish Things
[community profile] fandomcalendar A general bulletin board for various ficathons, exchanges, challenges, etc. Invaluable enabler material.
[community profile] fic_promptly Multi-fandom comment-fic community similar to comment_fic.
[personal profile] fandom_newsletters has a list of active fandom newsletters on LJ and DW.
[community profile] toodamnpretty Pretty pictures of pretty actors. Yes, we're absolutely that shallow.
[community profile] fanart_recs Exactly what the name says.
[community profile] fancake A thematic, multi-fandom fanfic rec community.
[community profile] bestthingever For recs of really great, brand new fic.
[community profile] fandom_fanvids Multi-fandom fanvid community.
[community profile] wehazmafia Self-explanatory if you already play mafia.
[community profile] shes_awesome A community dedicated to awesome women, and in particular to awesome female television and movie characters.
[community profile] fanbingo An ongoing, no-deadlines bingo. They're sometimes a bit slow to get cards out, though, so consider yourselves warned.

Dreamwidth Things
[site community profile] dw_suggestions If you want to vote on possible future changes at DW.
[site community profile] dw_community_promo The official promotion community for new communities.
[community profile] dreamwidthlayouts Looking for a new layout?
[community profile] style_system Looking for help making your own style?
Tiny Icon Code Generator for Dreamwidth

Other Things
[community profile] followfriday For finding more things to do.

And I think all the Cam/John fans are already on [community profile] sg_flyboys, right? ;)

Other suggestions are welcome! (And thank you to [personal profile] everythingshiny for the Very Appropriate Icon.)

(One last thing: if you want to use Flexible Squares (or Smooth Sailing or Mixit or Nebula) over on Dreamwidth, you may want to try this version of the code. Although if you're willing to try a new look, it's apparently worth considering native DW styles, which give you a little more flexibility.)
