Redial is taking a bit of a breather through August and we'll get going with season ten the first week of September (so tune in September 2 for the redial chat of "Flesh and Blood").
You guys know the drill, but just in case:
--first come, first served
--one recap per customer
--as many metas as you like
--make sure we have a contact email for you
Volunteering for recaps are open until they're all taken. You can sign up to write meta any time from now until that episode's week has passed -- i.e., if you get inspired by someone's recap, you can sign up then and there to write meta, so long as you can post it before the next recap goes up.
What are recaps and meta posts?
1) Recaps -- these are the main episode posts. They recap the episode, summarizing the highlights to initiate discussion. They can be as short or as long as you like (although no longer than one LJ post), creative or straight-forward. Have a look at some of the previous entries if you want some inspiration. Recaps must be gen.
Recaps need to be posted by you on or before the MONDAY of the episode week. Feel free to submit it days or weeks or advance -- we'll keep it quietly waiting in the queue until the right time! It'll be checked by a mod for lj cuts and the like, and will appear on the Tuesday (dates listed below).
If you want to volunteer for an episode, comment below and let us know which one. If you're the first one to ask for an episode, then it's yours.
2) Meta posts -- unlike the recaps, these posts are based on analysis and opinion. They can also be as serious or silly as you like. Relationships , technology, mythology, colour schemes--all are up for grabs. If you want to discuss the AU Sam finds herself trapped in or exactly what Daniel was planning when he became a prior, or how Teal'c got to be so incredibly awesome, here's the place.
We ask that you specify which episode you wish to meta, and give us a brief idea of the subject -- that way, others who might want to meta a different aspect of the same episode will know what's available.
Like the recaps, meta can be submitted at any time and held in the queue until the week of the episode. The meta will then be posted a day or so after the recap and fanworks posts go up. If more than one person volunteers to do meta for the same episode, we'll stagger the meta to make sure they go up on different days -- that way, each meta post can be properly appreciated.
Once your recap or meta claim has been acknowledged, you'll be added to the list below. Remember to become a member of the community so you can post!
Before posting recaps or meta, please read the episode post guidelines. Even veteran recappers may want to glance through to make sure you're up to date on our requirements.
