Getting ready

I'm getting ready to open the community back up and start allowing pending actives.
First, we'll have a check-in, of course.

What I wanted to know is what were/are your biggest concerns regarding new people?
Should there be strict(er) guidelines put into place?
What kind(s) of things do you guys suggest?

Participants starting out in '07

Two things

1.) Here is the list of people who responded to the poll, and will be continuing their membership once the community reopens Collapse )

2.) Important - I don't know who some of you are anymore. IF YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR USERNAME, PLEASE COMMENT BACK WITH YOUR FORMER USERNAME SO THAT I AM NOT 100% CLUELESS.

Thanks everyone! New information will be up soon! Happy New Year!

Community cleanup.

It's been said before, and it's officially been (more than) proven. This community cannot function without external management. I take the responsibility for this - I had let this community take control over me, rather than the other way around. I was weighed down by the negatives, only to find now, that I really should've let the positives outweigh them.

That being said - this is a check-in.
It will be open from now until December 31st.
VOTING HAS ENDED. IF YOU HAVE NOT RESPONDED, YOU ARE BEING REMOVED.

Anyone who doesn't check in, will be removed from the community in January.

We are going to go back to the old way of running this community. What does that mean?

- Bi-weekly check-ins
- Member-to-Member feedback system
- Pending Actives (You must create to play)

In addition to this, I want to make the community even more interactive. To that end, I'm hoping to get some people to post prompts, tutorials, and things of this nature.

So, fill out this poll, and we'll get the ball rolling again

Poll #881840 1000_Journals Community Poll

First and foremost - Will you participate once the community is up & running again?

Yes
27(96.4%)
No
1(3.6%)
Only if some things change (please leave a comment below)
0(0.0%)

Do you currently have a book in your possession?

Yes
8(28.6%)
No
18(64.3%)
I have one, but I can't remember the number
2(7.1%)

Please leave your username & the # of the journal you have in the text box.

Do you think you'd make a good maintainer, and/or do you want to help? Tell me why!




IMPORTANT: I've got a new community email: 1000journals@gmail.com

Those of you who don't know who might have their journals and/or cannot "find" their journals, after the first of the year, I will be giving out the emails of the last-known recipient so that you may harass-at-will.

Just so you know

This community is undergoing a big re-vamp, behind the scenes, and will be reopened and (hopefully) returned to its former glory, including new journals being a reuirement for new members - and doing away with the sponsorship situation.

I will be (attempting to) recruit help shortly.

Thanks for your patience everyone - there have been a lot of rough spots for the mods here, and we really appreciate your willingness to stick around.

i received journal #107.
when i got the package i was completely confused because i wasn't expecting anything.
i don't know who sent it to me, but i thought i'd post just let someone know that it arrived safely.

Cut it out with the "Where's my journal" posts.

We're already forcing you guys to watch the community, and people complain. The last thing we need is them to complain MORE because this keeps on happening.

We're a fairly active community.

If you're looking for your journal, and can't find it - post on the master list, I'll see the comment and reply when I have the information needed.


If you're looking to contact a particular user & need their contact information - email me.

Seriously, just quit it.

Thank you.
