Hey, don't worry. :)
I was just curious... I'm just glad the fandom I handle only has about 10 communities. And half of them aren't even all that active.

Very nice work!

For the fic section, there's another drabble community, trueblood100, that looks pretty active.
For actors, there's a Michelle Forbes fan comm at mfthiefofhearts.

And I'll post the links to Lim's excellent TB on DW resources at your off-LJ post. :)
