The communities have mostly been rather inactive after their establishment and have undergone changes of maintainership. At the moment I am maintaining them but I'm happy to share this duty with other people, who might have more time on their hands than I do for fandom.
The reason why I am saying this here is not because I want to wank about it but because I think having double, triple and quadruple communities on your f-list is really annoying. If the community is basically used for the same thing that is.
So I'd rather like to see either of the following solutions:
1. People breathing in new life to the old communities and close the new ones
2. Closing the old communities in favor of the new ones but that would involve all old members moving
