In an attempt to encourage members to ask the mods more questions, we are introducing the Page-A-Mod system. Considering that not everyone likes to use LJ messaging to contact us, whether it is because they are lazy or maybe because the idea of messaging one of those scary mods is intimidating, this should be effective in answering repetitive, miniscule, tricky,
There are eight of us, so just as our moderated posting system works, your comment should be replied to within a short amount of time.
Aside from just questions about the comm., this can be used to voice your opinions on the workings of the community, give us some suggestions, and hopefully there won’t be many of these, but to also report any complaints regarding the community and/or its members.
So now instead of starting and ending your post with “Mods, feel free to delete this if it’s not allowed” or “Sorry mods, I’m not sure what to tag this as”, you can visit this post beforehand and learn the right way to go about it. We really would appreciate more people contacting us before they go post- or comment-crazy.
The restrictions to these messages are at a bare minimum, but I doubt we’ll have any problems. After commenting, your message will be screened until viewed by a mod, and upon reading and responding, the mod will then decide if it’s okay to be unscreened.
We also suggest that you check your question hasn’t already been asked, and even though we know that not enough people do this, search through the tags (we did spend a day updating the system) or use our very own search engine, and of course, reread the community rules, F.A.Q., and mod posts.
PLEASE NOTE: We ask that you allow private messaging as we may need to reply to you using that system. You can change your settings here, under contact info (having it at 'receive messages from registered users' would allow us to PM you). Thank you!
