Just wondering....  
Anyone else feeling sad that today is the final day for recs on crack_van?

Yes. :(

Funnily enough, I have a Pros rec I meant to post - perhaps I'll make a bigger post of it and post a bunch, or start posting regularly.

(I offered to do January for Pros, but never got a reply - but I did try!)

I don't think they were taking reccers for January, they just left all of December's reccers' posting access in place. But on the 15th (today in my timezone) they shut up shot. *sob* . Do post your Pros recs, if you still have access. It will be your last chance to do it.

They left access in place? I had no idea. Bum. Although, thinking about it, I was November, and there was no-one for December. I just offered to continue.

I don't really have time to do a nice ending post. If I can't get anything else up, I do at least think that Art Forms is a really nice one to end on.

Fair enough. I'm glad you took the wheel in November at any rate, so that we had some recs again towards the end of the van's run.

Me, I feel sad about it. Not only will I miss the com itself and the diversity of the recs posted there but I think it was one of the hub coms that get LJ based fandom ticking over.

I read a lot of fics in fandoms I wouldn't normally read in, thanks to the van, and also kept in touch with older fandoms through the van. It will be missed. I can see fandom slowly moving away from LJ, and the final garaging of the van won't help.

I didn't realise today was the last day ( I'm feeling quite sorry about that) x

They're not going to take the site down, but there will be no more posts after the 15th :-(
