I am happy to consense about reopening Book Club for HP7, as my copy is arriving Saturday and the internet is already landmined with spoilers.

Yes, please.

Also, the old B'crxy won't go away from my sidebar even when I try to unsubscribe. Am I doing something dumb, or is that just a coding thing that no one has had time to deal with yet?

Stompies? I think we have achieved Bull Shit.

I think it's the latter. The side bars display whether you subscribe or not, I think. Bureau-blah-blah 3 needs to be archived or moved to closed threads before it goes away (I think).

Ah! Okay, thanks. Just making sure it wasn't me.

I don't know if there's a queue of proposals, but since I just saw a casting spoiler for House, it occurred to me that it might be a good time to float the idea of a Network Drama bucket thread before the gathered populace.

I'm for it, but are we still too early? Is discussing it now before premieres start nipping at our heels a good idea? Non-Fiction seems to be doing well.

We have to wait for the other proposal to be settled, Connie to propose something else.

Also, FTR, I am game to have the book club opened for Pottermania.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Oh yeah, I'd love the HP stuff to go into the book club thread.

Woe to the fucking wicked.

Add my bull.

I think that there isn't anything else that's been waiting for an open, so you'd not be cutting in line to go next, Connie.

I agree with the cowgirl.

Stompies? Can we just reopen the book thread then? I think we have a full on consense.

Can we open it today?
