Thank you for your report.Unfortunately, we are unable to take any action in this matter, as the house_cuddy community was deleted by one of its maintainers. All maintainers, regardless of activity level, are considered equal in a community, and can remove other maintainers, ban users from the community, or delete the community as they choose for any reason. For further information on this issue, please see [http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=225].

I understand that this situation is upsetting to you and many others. However, as there have been no violations of the LiveJournal Terms of Service, the Abuse Prevention Team is unable to intervene in this matter. Although it will not replace the years of history contained within house_cuddy, you may wish to consider creating a new, similarly themed community.

I don't think we should leave it at that. I'm going to take a day or so to think it over and then probably send another letter discussing his coup d'etat and asking them to step in and allow for new moderators. The pissant was a moderator for mere months and yet deleted a community that had been there a lot longer than that. I'm also going to check into whether or not we can petition LJ somehow.

IMO we should start rebuilding now with a new set of moderators since em_gl has said she doesn't want to do it full-time. If we get house_cuddy back then the new mods here can take over there. Personally, I feel there should be 3-5 moderators as well as 2-4 maintainers.

It saddens me that we may lose the archives that were built at house_cuddy. I often went through the calendar and read old posts, etc. It was an enjoyable experience and provided me with an awesome introduction to the members of the community.

At the same time I feel strongly that we must move forward because of the principals involved, namely that:
  • the house/cuddy fandom is more than one person. NO matter how powerful that person may think he is;
  • the fandom can not be destroyed/dissolved by any one person;
  • that we are a strong group who believes in this pairing despite whatever individual disagreements we may have over it;
  • that we will fight for its survival when others seek to destroy it (that's how I view this action by *the pissant* that it was an attack against the fandom itself and NOT an attack on any one person but the group as a whole - screw him);
  • we're organized and prepared to start over.
To that end, hopefully, we can have an episode discussion thread tomorrow and continue with our activities as normal. Since this community was only pimped at a few communities would anyone object if I went on a "pimping" spree? There were more than 2800 members at house_cuddy and only 205 here which means we've lost 90-95 per cent of our membership somewhere in cyberspace. I think there should be a concerted effort to reach some of them to let them know that a housecuddy_temp community has arisen --- which much thanks to em_gl.  :)

All just IMHO, of course. I look forward to your comments.

We all have our favorite onscreen moments of our star pairing, but what have been your favorite moments/memories of house_cuddy? Meaning memorable entries, epic flail posts, utterly hilarious comments, etc. I'm mainly referring to the posts in general, not necessarily the artwork/fanmixes in particular. That's another story! ;)

I just made a post similar to this on my personal journal, but I just wanted to let you guys know how much I appreciate the support and willingness to fight for a place that you love this much. I'm doing everything I can to try to handle and rectify this, and I'd like to thank the creators of this temporary community and to all of the people here who are remaining positive and supportive, not to mention outright determined, to fix this situation and hopefully create something even better.

The abridged version of what happened is this. I basically called him on the fact that he doesn't do his discussion posts anymore. I emailed both him and Gemma at the same time, asking if they wanted to make their posts for this last episode. Gemma said that honestly, no, she doesn't have time and energy anymore with work, so she stepped down of her own volition. She even unchecked her own name on the list before telling us she was leaving, which I found noble. ngl, I cried though.

Then I got an email from Shane saying he had asked another user to be a mod without consulting me first. This bothered me. That is a huge decision and I felt it should be discussed (or that maybe Gemma would have been able to choose her own successor?). I could have done that too, I had ideas for people I wanted to add but I didn't take any action because I wanted to talk to him first. I never got the chance. When I expressed my distaste, I said I didn't want to mod with someone who no longer watches the show (the person he chose has not watched since last season). He responded by telling me he hasn't seen the last 4 episodes himself. So I asked why he still even wanted to be a mod, either. He went off about how busy he was with school and freelance work, both of which are things I have on my plate, too, and about how he's tried to "lead the community", etc. I asked him how he thought he was doing that, and he removed me as mod/maintainer without warning. I asked him if he was positive he wanted to do that because I knew it'd blow up, and he then fully banned me for "blackmail."

He made a post announcing I was no longer mod, and as predicted, things blew up. I couldn't get into the entry because I was ~banned~, but I heard all about it. He emailed me back really soon, asking me to come back as a mod, provided I "apologize" and agree to "run everything by him" in the future. I refused to agree to those conditions. Later, it was taking me a bit longer to email him back because I was trying to calm down and think and not fly off the handle. I was trying to decide if it was worth going back or not, if I wanted to continue to work with somebody like that, like... I had a lot to think about, so I wasn't emailing him back as promptly as before. He sent another email saying that me not responding to his email fast enough was causing chaos in the community. I told him I didn't owe him anything anymore, that any chaos there was his own doing, and that I'm not going to speed up my reply just to spare his feelings. When people continued to "attack" him as he waited for my email, he decided he couldn't take the heat and the only solution was to delete the community.

So now you know. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, because unlike him, I am not running away from this situation.

If you guys really want the fate of our community to rest in our hands, write a letter to LJ's Abuse department explaining how this was totally out of the blue, uncalled for, and an abuse of power from a mod that wasn't even active in the first place.

How 'bout a lovely fanfic hunt to take our minds off recent events?

First, I'm looking for any H/C fics where Cuddy has House handcuffed (to a bed or to himself) while she has his wicked way with him (already read Cincoflex' Mistress, and the one chapter of the Game On series over at the House fanfic archive).

Second, I'm looking for one fic in particular...

posted under cut for mature contentCollapse )

Whew! Thanks. Any help is very much appreciated!
