Awwwww :( :( I'm so sad about this. Consider this a big old comment wanting this to come back.

I wondered when this was coming, since the interest for The Office in all of the editors' journals seemed pretty low! I still get a lot of use out of the newsletter though, since it helps me filter fic of uninteresting pairings. And also I never remember to check the actors' myspaces. So, I have interest :)

Keep it going or my grief will drive me to jump off a reasonably sized cliff.

I love this newsletter!

I love this comm since it saves me the many entries I'm sure I'd receive on my flist if I watched other Office communities. Sorry to see it go on hiatus, but thanks for all your hard work up until now ♥
Mariza: the office - stanleymme_riphaldin on November 9th, 2009 01:23 am (UTC)
:( Another big vote that y'all can eventually come back! This newsletter's been pretty much my only fandom touchstone on LJ. Y'all have done a great job so far, thanks for everything!

NO! I look forward to this all the time )':

I screencapped the first time my icons were mentioned. And I STILL screencap them! Please come back

eta:// I often find myself in other fandoms thinking how convenient it would be if they had something like this. Please stay.

I would definitely miss scranton_times if it were gone. Thank you for all the great links!
Boca.: to: jim and pam air fivemsqu on November 9th, 2009 05:18 am (UTC)
I hope this is only a very brief and temporary hiatus. This comm is the best that I've seen around the fandom - very organized and links to everything I'd like to see, I pretty much depend on this comm alone for getting around the fandom. It's fabulous, but if you don't come back, thanks for all of the work that's been put in up till now.

ShortySC22shortysc22 on November 9th, 2009 12:46 pm (UTC)
I definitely don't read regularly, but whenever I do have free time I go back through the archives and check things out. Thanks for all of your hard work and I hope the hiatus doesn't last long.

Thanks for all the hard work, I hope you come back soon!

Bummer! This site is always good for fic leads on sites I don't normally visit.

scranton_times is, by far, my favorite comm. I look for it every week!
Jimmy Petstoresnoopypez on November 9th, 2009 08:42 pm (UTC)
I am DEFINITELY interested in seeing it come back!
(Anonymous) on November 9th, 2009 10:38 pm (UTC)
please keep going!
It's awesome to have a place to find quality fic and other aggregated info. But, it's understandable if you guys don't have time in a fandom that's slowed.

Oh no! I check Scranton Times regularly to get my fandom fix, so you can consider my interest completely gauged. Or engaged. Or something. Anyhow, I'll miss you in a big way! Thank you so much for three years of fine work. You definitely deserve a Dundie.

Sorry, I was just lubricating the gyrosprocketmcshutup on November 18th, 2009 10:44 pm (UTC)
goodbye, columbus...
I check S/T twice a week. I used the archive a lot and the fic I've found here is what initially stirred my enthusiasm for the show.

On the other hand, I don't think I could successfully maintain a reliable resource like this, and I don't blame the mods for being a little burned out.

I guess if it's done, it's done, and someday I'll be sitting around at work and feeling a slight pang of nostalgia for The Paper Sellers Club and suddenly realise I don't know anyone in the world who knows what the hell that is.

I would be really, really upset if you guys go. But I can understand how much time and effort running this community takes. Good luck on the search for co-editors. I would volunteer, but I'm super busy with school.

I recently came into the Office fandom and I looked around and this is amazing. I wishwishwish I can see when this is off hiatus and running again. I think it'd be a wonderful boost for the fandom in general.
