nomadicwriter: Doctor Doom on his throne (Doom throne)

This is now the main base for the former [ profile] doomfans community on LiveJournal, and future updates will only be made here and at /doomfans on Imzy. All past entries and comments have been imported - if you still have the original LJ account they were made under, you can take ownership of them by claiming your OpenID.

Okay, so a lot of people who've held out on LiveJournal for a long time are now making a move to Dreamwidth due to the recent ToS changes. This has always been a small comm and I'm not sure how many of the original membership are still here lurking or have already left the site, so, a question for the remainder: would you prefer [ profile] doomfans to remain here on LJ or relocate to Dreamwidth?

I'm not going to delete the LJ version of the comm or my personal LJ whatever's decided (apart from anything else, all the image hosting on older entries is through LJ scrapbook) but if we do make a move to Dreamwidth I'd rather just make a clean break and only post there than faff about with crossposting. If you don't have/want a Dreamwidth account it would still be possible to comment on the DW version using your LJ account via OpenID.

So... what do you guys want to do?

[Poll #2066374]

I recently turned off anonymous commenting here to prevent an influx of spam (possibly another reason to move to DW?) but have now turned it back on so anybody who's already deleted their LJ can leave a comment. Or you can contact me on Dreamwidth at [info]nomadicwriter. (And don't forget the comm already has a sister version on Imzy.)

Just a heads-up that [ profile] doomfans now has a sister community on Imzy at /doomfans!

I'm not usually an early adopter of these things, but Imzy seems to be gaining some traction with former LiveJournal/Dreamwidth people and has a community-based setup, so I thought I'd stake out the space. I'll be crossposting the same comic reviews and news I do here, though I may also do more image posts over there because the drag-and-drop image posting is much less of a faff than LJ scrapbook.

Imzy's still in closed beta at the moment, so unfortunately you can't see the comm without signing up, but it only requires an email address, no other personal info. If you request an invitation at the link to the comm I can approve it for you, though note that I will see your email address.

Quick preview of what stuff looks like on Imzy for the curious. )

There's also an existing /doomtony community for fans of Doctor Doom/Tony Stark.

Welcome to [ profile] doomfans, a new community for fans of Marvel's Doctor Doom!

I'm [ profile] nomadicwriter, your host and mod. I came into Marvel comics fandom via the first Iron Man movie, and immediately fell for Doctor Doom after reading the classic Doom-Iron Man team-up in Incredible Iron Man #150. That inspired me to pick up my local library's copy of Books of Doom, and from there on I've been chasing his appearances all over the history of the Marvel U. (Or as much of it as a low budget and a library with a surprisingly good trade collection can provide.)

Since Doom pops up in so many different corners of the Marvel universe there's no one central place to share the fannish love, so I created this community as somewhere I can ramble about his appearances in various different comics without hijacking other comms.

Doom-related fanfic, fanart, icons, meta, and discussion of all kinds are welcome, or feel free to just introduce yourself and share the Doctor Doom love! Unlike Doom, I have no desire to rule with an iron fist, so the posting rules are few and simple:

Now, go forth and celebrate the glory that is Doom!
