Welcome to Area 12.|
I have just fallen EXTREMELY hard for this webcomic, and would like to pull as many people as possible down with me. If I'm not getting any work done, then no one is! MWAHAHAHAHA!
I give you the awesome webcomic String Theory, and the main source of that awesome, our hero, Dr Schtein.

Judging by all the Dreamwidth invite spam posts we were getting for a bit, it looks like most of you have figured out without us needing to tell you that yes, indeed, we are moving to Dreamwidth. More than half of you who voted said that you would certainly come with us if we moved to Dreamwidth, and we got many, many enthusiastic comments and suggestions -- thank you all so much.
Now it's time to hammer out some logistics. After some back and forth with the Dreamwidth admins and a look at the mod team's to-do list for the move, we're ballparking the Great Scans_Daily Move Party for this weekend.
It's been confirmed that Dreamwidth will give the mod team link to an invite code generator that will provide us with enough codes to move the whole community (and then some). When we have this url, we will provide the link in a locked post to both communities. If you need an invite to get a Dreamwidth account, all you will need to do is follow the link, click a button, and receive an invite code to create your account.
If you really want to set up an account right now, you have several options:
- You can buy an account. One last reminder: anyone who wants to buy a paid account is advised to do so by October 31st, before the price hike.
- You can go to sd_invite and ask us to send you a code from our donation pool.
The corollary of this is that if you have codes you're willing to donate, it would be fantabulous if you'd go over to this post and send them to us so we can keep the pool going. People have been incredibly generous so far. Thank you so much, everyone.
Note: A number of people donated codes before October 24th, when we first found out and announced that there would be an invite generator to get the community started. We don't want to just assume without asking that you still want to give us your codes under changed circumstances, so we've contacted you to confirm your donation. If you haven't already, pease let us know. Even if you've changed your mind, we still very much appreciate the offer.
ETA: The invite code generator is now active. Existing members please refer to my follow up post. Prospective members, please email us at dailyscans[at]gmail[dot]com. I've responded at SD_Invite but will be screening those comments momentarily. Thanks!

Strange #1 Preview
"No longer Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe, Stephen Strange must discover a new path to fulfillment and enlightenment. Unfortunately, that path leads through a bizarre, terrifying gauntlet of magical menaces--and if the former Master of the Mystic Arts is going to survive the journey, he'll need some assistance - in the form of a brand-new student!"
( and, y'know, oddly adorable lovecraftian baseball. )

By now you will have (we hope) heard that Scans Daily IJ will be taking up residence at DreamWidth. This will be the community's permanent home. Reasons for the move are outline in previous mod posts, available here and here. Outlined below is our rough timeline for the migration. We've built in some buffer time, in case comments or entries go astray during import.
1. Mods post a link to the invite code generator. Today.
Existing members should be able to see the post under the mod tag on both comms. New members, please email us at dailyscans[at]gmail[dot]com. Don't request a code at SD_Invite - we're saving those codes for after the migration.
2. Members use the invite code generator to create a DreamWidth account. Throughout the week.
Early birds, please take advantage of all of DW's excellent FAQs, to play around with your account's options, and to make yourself aware of LJ -> DW code changes. When Scans Daily DW is opened, we will be posting links to DW FAQs, all of our old FAQs and some new ones being written by mods and volunteers.
3. Scans Daily IJ is closed. Late night Saturday.
After Scans Daily IJ has been closed, a memorial post will go up, directing people to our new digs at DW, and celebrating our time on IJ. You will still be able to comment on old entries, but posting access will be limited to mods.
4. ScansDaily DW is opened. Mid day Sunday. Monday at the lastest.
Posting access will be granted to all members, as soon as we've ensured that the import has gone through without issue.
That means that yes, there will be a period of downtime while we import all the bajillion entries and comments from IJ to DW. We will have a moving day party post in NoScans, to tide us over.
- The icon space at DW has been upped to 15 for free accounts.
- The invite code system is currently under discussion. There is a possibility that the site will eventually do away with it. This will not affect migration, but is of interest to some members.
- DW is working on a fix that will allow open-id owners to edit imported posts and comments.
- We are still looking to put together a Delicious Tag Archive, in order to protect our entries from tag vandalism, and to archive more detailed metadata than journal-site tags are able to. If you'd like to help us get this project off the ground, please join SD_Volunteers.

Another Siege promo|
This came out before the Bucky one, though I don't think it's been posted here yet.

Warlord #451, May 14 1983|
Not, mind you, the American "Warlord", in which an US Air Force pilot lands in the Hollow Earth of Skartaris, but the British comic weekly series. War comics were big in the early 1980s in England, at least partially because the Falklands War had gone so well, improving the image of the UK armed forces in the eyes of the public. Of course, "war" is a loose subject, so you still got a variety of stories in any given comic.
This is the May 14th 1983 issue; the one-third rule has been adhered to as much as possible.
Next time, a look at Victor, and a demonstration of "Sci-Fi Writers Have No Sense of Scale".

Omg you guys are still alive :DDD|
I know that there was going to be a site mirror etc., but I didn't know if we could actually function more or less like how we did before with the scans, so I kinda gave up the community for dead :<
Nice to see that isn't the case :D
So, hi gaaaiz 8D!!!
