[SH] Jim seeks nemesis for fun and games

Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Missing Sunday Watchalong

Tomorrow afternoon I'm going to be in a pub cheering on European football players for the Euro Cup, so no watchalong tomorrow.

And the last two Sunday Watchalongs have been bust, so I'm pretty bummed about them.

To shake things up a bit for Sundays, I thought I'd adopt out some watchalongs to new hosts. Maybe we need something new!

Want to Host a Watchalong?
Sundays @ 12pm LA / 3pm New York / 8pm London
June 24 - jussacgirl
July 8 - rabidsamfan
July 22 - morelindo

Host whatever you like, as long as it's Sherlockian. Put up polls or just decide.
Advertise as you like.
On Watchalong day, post 1 hour or so before start time.
Have epic amounts of fun!
???
PROFIT.

Key:
  • The new default comment style is what's currently in use in this community. It doesn't reload the page after you comment and it doesn't have subject lines.
  • The old default comment style has subject lines and reloads the page after you comment. The BBC Sherlock fic meme (link goes to the love post; visually SFW, I don't know about content) uses the old style.
  • Custom layout comment styles match the rest of the layout. They have subjects and reload after commenting, like the old style. The layout would aim to be very readable, easy to use, and easy to load. 221b-slash and CumberbatchFans and FreemanFans are examples of custom layout comments.
  • If we vote to change the comment style, then the layout will need to be changed because this layout doesn't support the old style.
