The District Messenger is a great place to start - I am just scared that it is now massively hard to top that!!!

Believe you me I won't!!!

I don't know who you are but I thought that you might be interested in joining Mycrofting.

What is Mycrofting about?
Mycrofting is a Sherlock livejournal community. The content focuses on everything relating to Sherlock and the Sherlock creatives and cast. This is a PG family friendly community. No fan fiction, of any kind, is permitted in this community.

What is unusual about Mycrofting?
Mycrofting is not MY community - it belongs to its members. All members are equal and I have set up the community so that all members can post whatever they want, whenever they want. There is no moderation in place (just as with Cumberbatchfans). I actively encourage all my members to post their own pieces direct onto the community site. I want to make everyone feel at home and able to contribute. I want to give everyone a voice. Mycrofting will therefore end up being what its members make it.

What has happened so far?
I launched Mycrofting a week ago yesterday and we are a small, friendly and vibrant community. We now have 31 members. Even as we grow larger, I aim to retain a personal touch - I welcome all new members in person and respond to comments as much as I can. I hope all my members enjoy the community and thank you again for your support.

I have experienced too many communities where the mods are a pain in the ass!!! - that is NOT Mycrofting!!! Some people have had trouble posting at Sherlock BBC - Mycrofting is the polar opposite!!!

So have a nose round - see what you think - Sherlockians and anyone Addicted to Sherlock come on down!!!

I was the only male on the walk. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to talk with many people, but I am trying to rectify that by friending people who were there. :)
