Uhm.. I'm really not sure how to do/say this but here we go..

Is anyone willing to take over the_snuglies?
I lost interest a while ago and it just seems stupid to keep the community. But I don't want to go ahead and delete the comm either, cause that wouldn't really be fair to you, cause some of you actually do post something every once in a while and I'm assuming you still enjoy being here =)

So.. leave a comment if you'd be willing to take over?

It's very sad to hear that you've lost your interest. It happens to everyone (including me), so I totally understand it. I'm willing to take over, but only if there's no other applicants.

I don't think I'm the best person to do it though, because a) I'm not an active member of the fandom in a creative way (or not active in any way), b) I'm not a native English speaker, nor a decent non-native, and I'm almost useless in German. But at least I can maintain a comm in some ways, like checking posts, fixing tags or changing layouts once in a while, I believe, and if it's okay with you, I'll gladly take over. :)

Have you considered bringing this up in nachgetreten (German football fandoms newsletter)? 'Members Only' posts often tend to be missed even by its community members. And with the same reason, nachgetreten seems to have completely missed to pick this up in its issue. Unlocking this post and telling nachgetreten's editors about it may bring more attention and applicants to this. (Perhaps you aren't doing it on purpose, then please forgive me.)

Anyway, just wanted to tell you I'm available! As comments are screened I couldn't see if other members have been responding or not, and I really don't want to see this comm go. I love the pairing and this place, and like you said there are still some activities in here (even these are a handful times in a year), so please don't hesitate to contact me when you need my participation. :)

Thank you so much for willing to take over =)

So far no one else applied.

I've never really been active either, aside from making icons I'm usually pretty inactive when it come to fandom in general *cough* And I'm not a native speaker myself, and usually freaking worried about my spelling and grammar lol but your English seems perfectly fine to me =)

I made the post members only on purpose, not exactly sure why tho. Probably because I didn't want some random stranger to ask to take over the comm? Idk.. It's public now, but I doubt anyone else is going to apply, the post has been here for over a week now..

So yeah, I guess I'm going to hand the comm over to you now, adding you as a maintainer and all. Alright?

I'm so sorry for a late reply! (My PC kept dying on me, dammit.) I see you've already assigned me & phoenixmaedchen to the job, I promise I'll do my best. It's great to have phoenixmaedchen as a co-maintainer, like you said having two mods will do better to the comm. The more, the merrier! :)

Is it okay to leave the community's layout & userinfo as they are now? I'm no good in graphic making business and I really like what you've done, the simplicity & crispness of them, so I think we should keep them until we can find another fabulous source.

Last but not least, I'd like to thank you very much for your contribution, you've been doing great. It's very sad to see you go. I hope you aren't completely out of the Football fandom, your graphics are gorgeous and I loved them. It must be lovely to see you around. :)

Awww no problem, my computer is a total whore lately, as well.. actually it's not even my own, cause my own crashed 2 weeks ago and is pretty much dead and I have to use my brother's old computer now -.-"

Of course, that's fine with me. Glad someone still likes my graphics *g* haven't done anything in a while, mainly because of my stupid computer but also because my muse is a bitch and I don't have any inspiration at all :)

Thanks again for taking over :)
And no, I'm not out of the fandom entirely. I still love football and will probably make icons again if I feel inspired and have my computer back or a new one.. it's just that I don't have as much time as I used to have a few months ago (being back at school and living alone does that, I guess ^^) and I'm barely keeping up with everything footie related, I'm totally out of the loop most of the time, I'm clueless when it comes to transfer stuff this season and haven't read fanfiction in months, for instance, and the rare free-time I have lately, I spent in a completely different fandom

The PC situation you're in just sucks, I feel your pain. I'm still on Windows ME and it's crazy, I'm sure I'm the last creature who's still using it. -_-;; Hoping you'll get a new one soon so that we can have another icon batch from you... well, eventually? XD

It's my pleasure to be at your service. :)
Really nice to know that you still love football! But yeah, RL wipes us out sometimes. With school & housekeeping I can easily assume you have no life at all. I know it's almost impossible to keep up with transfer stuff nowadays, let alone any other fandoms. You go offline only for one week and when you are back, you have no clue what's going on in the fandom. Anyway, enjoy your fandom and if you want to swim back to here, we'll be here anytime. David Cook is such a lovely cookie, by the way. :9

I don't know if this is already settled, but if you still need anyone to take over or help with the comm, I'd do it from November on, as I'm not in the internet regularly at the moment, but maybe I could help then, if you need someone... don't want this here to be deleted ^^

I already added wallflower18 as a maintainer, but I think I'm going to add you as well. I guess it's better to have two people maintaining the comm, in case one of you is not available or something..

Schön zu sehen, dass sich doch noch ein paar für die Comm interessieren, also danke schön und so ^^
Falls noch Fragen sind oder ihr noch bei irgendwas Hilfe braucht oder so, ich lass mich da mal noch als Maintainer drin, keine Ahnung, ob das die erste Comm ist, die ihr betreut/gegründet habt wie auch immer, also einfach fragen, wenn irgendwas ist.. aber ich denke mal ihr kommt auch ganz gut alleine klar :)

Hi! Thank you so much for your help, it's great to have you as a partner in crime. <3
Also, really glad to know you're from Germany because I'm almost helpless in German as I already said above.

I'm going to fix tags while you're away. If you have something in mind, give me a shout. See you soon! ♥
