Because I'm a sheep (and because I hadn't introduced myself yet) ...
1) Give your name and a little about yourself, including interests and hobbies.
Well my real name is Kathryn (I go by K on most mailing lists usually) but online I go by Joe. I'm 31, British, and currently unemployed (but I have an interview next Wednesday and I just found that out so I'm telling everyone!). I love animals, pretty much all animals except spiders and I love to write (and read). I write original fiction and fanfiction. And for those of you who know Empire Records, yes that is where I got my online name from. I even have my own Lucas to write with, although she hasn't yet migrated over here. She will though ;)
2) Tell us why you came to InsaneJournal. Did someone from IJ tell you (and if so, who)?
Well I bought my permanent account around the time of LiveJournal's last stupidity and after this recent one I've decided to make this my main home. I still have my LiveJournal because I'm a challenge-aholic and most of those have to be posted on LiveJournal. I've mirrored my fic comms over here, but most of the ones I'm just a writer for haven't yet moved.
told me about this place and I feel right at home here.
3) What is your favorite thing, so far, about InsaneJournal?
It's so friendly, squeaky is great, and it's not run by a company who find their customers to be a necessary annoyance to be patronised, ignored, and insulted. While I don't like their policies about what can and can't be posted what really drove me away was their complete lack of professionalism (When you're working for a company as large as they're becoming then you don't just ignore deadlines, especially ones you set, and you get someone who has a better grasp of plain English to post your 'clarifications', not to mention you don't just start tossing the word paedophile around like it's candy.)
4) Have you joined any other asylums? If not, would you like to?
I've joined a few. I run four fiction challenges, and I've joined another one (although I haven't yet signed up), I'm still looking for more interesting asylums.
5) Is there a certain kind of asylum or type of friends you are looking for?
I'm looking for good fic comms (in many many fandoms, too many to list), a few icons comms, if there are any icon resource comms (brushes and such) I'd like to join some of them. Discussion comms about some of my shows... anything else that just comes up :D
6) Do you want to be an active member of InsaneJournal? (Meaning, do you want to promote IJ, update, and get involved in asylums?)
I've moved all my fic over here (not sure exactly how many but it took me 150 posts over three days) and about 2500 icons so yes I intend to be active here. :D
