I am thrilled to see so many new people here

Last night, as those of you who joined will know, I cross-posted an invitation to join this community to a number of relevant LJ communities. I still need to invite people on more communities, but want to go about it in a way that won't offend people. So right now, I'm guessing that a lot of people have seen the invite more than once, being on more than one community, and others on other communities have seen it from being on the communities to which it was posted. Any further invites, I would like to do in a way that's a little subtler. Last night felt like spamming but it can't be denied it got some results. That's part of the hell of trying to get things moving--you do things that feel wrong, and you do get results.

I am extremely grateful to everyone who did join and hope there will be more. I've looked at most of your journals and am impressed. And remember, all you need to do to be part of the "Earthsea Names" petition is to email your name to So far I have not gotten any names. I wish I could increase security on the names so that it violated the privacy of LJ a little less. I haven't yet figured out how to do this--maybe extend the qualifications to include LJ names, thus assuring privacy. (It could even get SciFi reading LJs of people of color.) What do you think?

To those who might be reading but haven't joined: remember you can email your name, in whichever form we decide on, without joining. If you think you and others would prefer your LJ name, you don't even need to email but just put it here. LJ names are preferable to no names.

In fact, they bear some resemblance to the public names of the Earthsea characters--just thought of this.
