Dinobots Rule, the stomping ground for Dinobot fan

Greetings community members.

As many of you are now aware, Livejournal has transferred complete ownership and control over to their Russian counterpart company (a move we all knew would happen eventually, when they were bought out a few years ago) and updated their Terms and Conditions to force anyone using the platform to comply with Russian law regarding content, publication and speech.

This makes the content of this community questionable at best and obscene at worst. The site admins could, at any time, decide to simply delete this (and similar) fandom communities without notice. Also, related to the control move, Livejournal lost its SSL status earlier this week (it is currently restored, however that is always subject to change,) meaning that it could begin carrying malicious software and become vulnerable to a multitude of other threats.

With these issues in mind, dinobotsrule is moving completely to Dreamwidth as of this week.

I have spent the last month contemplating a permanent move as my fellow mods and I scrambled to back up communities and duplicate content. We refused to let them shut down our fandom and erase our history, but it is in the best interest of the fandom to move the community to a safer platform. Dinobotsrule has already been available over there for about two years now, with all posts copied over, comments preserved and tags imported. And, while this community will be officially closed it will not be deleted.

Starting from today, dinobotsrule will be available exclusively on Dreamwidth.org. However, in case of any new posts happening here on Livejournal, the DW community will back up once a month to preserve them, just in case.

If you are not a DW member, fear not! Joining is free, does not currently require an invite code and runs very much like livejournal. You can even copy over your own personal LJ account and preserve your journal.

So, my fellow fans, as much as it pains me to finally turn off the lights in this creaky old LJ, I hope that you’ll move with us to Dreamwidth and that we can keep having the good times. And even if you don’t come with us, thank you for what you did share.

See you soon,

There is a site that is copying whole journal entries and fanfics and posting them on their blog and has been since 2011 but only providing the original link not asking permission nor descriminating Between journal posts and fanfiction.

It seems to use a bot to collect certain tagged fics and has already taken fic from rare-pairing.

as a result I'm probably going to lock all my communities to members only as a protection measure. I have also contacted live journal to see if anything can be done.

I've posted the site below please check if your work is there and if you're not happy you can request that they take it down.


UPDATE: if you are affected (this mod is!) go to the domain's abuse support page and report it! http://www.privacyprotect.org/#report_abuse

greetings everyone!

it's been a while since we've had a challenge here at Dinobots Rule, so we're setting one up to start in July. However, I need just a little bit of input from you guys--the members that make this place possible.

i haven't quite decided on a theme for the challenge, so in the comments section, i'd like you to leave your top 3 theme ideas or challenge prompts for the July round. The only requirement for your ideas is that they need to be appropriate for all ages. I will then use one or more of these themes/prompts to build the July challenge and the others will be saved for a future event.

i'm looking forward to your suggestions!

here is the gorgeous participation banner for the challenge, made by pl2363. (and lost somewhere in my tablet's virtual stomach for a while because Kickback the Toshiba Thrive likes to eat my files!)

here are the challenge entries:

Animal Accuracy by ink_in_hand (Art, G1, animal accurate Dinobots--including Paddles!)

Jail Break by eerian_sadow (Fic, G1, no warnings, Paddles and Swoop, guest starring Seaspray)

I'll post a new challenge soon, probably in mid-April or so.

Hello Members!

i see it's been quiet since the comm opened, but i'm hoping to change that with our first community challenge. our first challenge's theme is:

Starting With A Bang

interpret this in any way you choose, with any Dinobots from any continuity you choose. all participants will get a gorgeous banner made by pl2363.

however, before you get started there are a couple rules.

1. Your piece must focus on at least one Dinobot, but other characters are welcome to make an appearance.

2. Challenge entries may be any medium from fanfiction to fanvids and anything in between. fics must be at least 100 words long,but the sky is the limit beyond that.

3. Entries are due by 11:59 PM, Central time (-6GMT) on February 20th25th. Please tag your entries with "challenge: starting with a bang"

4. This is the most important rule: Have Fun.

Hello and welcome to Dinobots Rule! If you're a Dinobot fan, you've come to the right place! (If you're not, that's okay. We like having guests!)

This is a community dedicated to Dinobot fan-love. Here you may express your love of any and all Dinobots via fanfiction, art, articles, photoshoots, toy purchases, essays and anything else you can think of. We encourage all forms of creativity. We also encourage questions; feel free to ask them in a comment if the question revolves around the Dinobots or PM the mods if your question is about the community itself.

However! There are some Rules involved in posting here. They aren't difficult, but they will result in banning if they are violated.

Also, as a note: Beast Wars Predicons don't get blanket coverage as Dinobots, even if they had dinosaur alt modes. There are, however, a line of Beast Wars Dinobot characters who were toy-only and they totally count. (So does Dinobot, for obvious reasons.)
