So we all know that I can’t moderate this blog to save my own life. Comments frequently end up wildly off topic as we chase some theory or other down the rabbit hole…which is mostly just how I like it.
But with a steady increase in traffic here and posts even speculating about the new book usually reaching 200+ comments, we are going to have to have some order around here come May 4th. Or chaos will reign.
* * * * *
If you plan to participate in discussion of the new book, PLEASE READ.
1. I will make a Dead in the Family post early on May 4th for everyone to yell, scream, squee, rant and rave. This post will be for general thoughts and discussion of any aspect of the book whatsoever.
When this post reaches 200 comments I will lock it and create a new one.
As some readers outside the US may still be waiting to receive their books and others may not be finished reading, discussion will be confined to a specific post initially. Those who want to avoid spoiling should then be able to do so easily. Those who are only part way through reading should be aware this post will contain spoilers they haven’t read yet.
**ALL DEAD IN THE FAMILY DISCUSSION IS TO RUN ON THESE POSTS ONLY, UNTIL THURSDAY**
2. PLEASE don’t discuss new information from DITF on any other active post, including True Blood posts, or I will have to edit your comment (and I fucking hate doing that).
3. After Thursday, we’ll return to business as usual and you can post DITF related information on any post.
4. If you feel very strongly about not being spoiled, it’s probably best to stay away from here until you have finished reading. I will do my best to keep comments to the DITF post/s for the first few days, but obviously I can’t be here 24/7.

I hope this will balance the need for us to talk about the book asap, with consideration for those who are still waiting or don’t want to be spoiled.
Hopefully this will work, but really I have no fucking idea. Feedback welcomed LOL.
Not long now…I’m so excited!
