For the 4 or so of you who might care...

The first thing I want to make clear is that I am in no way trying to start any kind of wank with this post. I am merely trying to explain myself.

If you're reading this, you probably saw my recent posts to various Band of Brothers comms attempting to gauge interest in a BoB fic archive. While most of the feedback was positive, some was not and I wanted to address what I perceived as the issue people were upset about. Please, understand, this is my own interpretation of comments and may or may not be what the commenters actually meant.

It seemed like people were upset because they thought I was saying that skyearth85's list wasn't good enough. That is not at all what I intended to convey. skyearth85's list is fantastic. She obviously put a lot of time and effort into it and if I was to undertake an archive I would, of course, be soliciting any help she's willing to give. That said, the list is only covering the stuff that's on LJ, and the fact that she has to hand-code everything in to that list means it is probably a whole lot of work. With an archive, authors would add their own stories, thus reducing the workload for anyone keeping track.

I know there was some other kerfuffle about a comment I made about the quality (or lack thereof) of BoB fic in places other than LJ. I made an offhanded remark that wasn't positive at all. I'm sorry and could definitely have handled it better. I'm not going to make any excuses.

I know this is probably really self-serving, but for some reason this episode is stuck in my head and won't get out. Thanks for listening.
