Justrandomwords (8:35:20 PM): philobate
Justrandomwords (8:35:29 PM): sadly
Justrandomwords (8:35:33 PM): is not working

the last post in this community was once again over a month ago. we have some great people here. i love the topics that get brought up. but 1) we don't have enough people and enough variety of thought to keep conversations going and keep the community active and 2) this mod/owner is just not the dedicated person with as much time for philobate as she'd like to be. so we have a couple options. i want this place to keep going. i think things like this need to exist. sharing of thought and opinion is soooo important. debating and formulating opinions is equally important. we all can promote more. hopefully that will attract more people. we could require promotions and activity (as in- you have to promote once a month and post once a month and comment 5 times a month) but i'm not a fan of that kind of requirement. this is afterall supposed to be something you enjoy. plus, i don't want to be a mean mod and have to pay attention to that kind of stuff and send warnings etc. so i'm throwing this out to you all as a last resort:
-promote, promote, promote
-we have a position for a maintainer in charge of promotion open for application. the job would include promoting in various promotion communities (i have a list) once a month, or as often as they allow. also promoting in random journals that have interests similar to philobates. if you're interested leave a comment and tell me why or what you would do. i don't want to just give this position to "someone" because we don't have anyone. so if someone wants to be a temporary maintainer in charge of promotion, that's cool too.
-we also need a maintainer in charge of prettyness and layout. cari (slightlywacked) i know you were interested in helping with this, and if you still want to the positions all yours.
-we need a moderator. i will continue to have moderator abilities according to lj and as owner, i will have final say, but i will no longer be a true moderator of the community. we need someone to keep everything going. update the info page, update the weekly theme, participate in as many discussions as they can, confirm things with the maintainers, etc. this could be a position for 2-3 people as the community goes.
-we need more people for any of this to matter so again promote, promote, promote. add a link to philobate at the end of all your lj entries...whatever you need to do.

*here's hoping i never make a post like this again*

i don't exactly know what a mod does, i mean, how much dedication it takes, but i guess i could be one. i love this community and hope people keep it running!

a mod...basically runs the community. i guess kinda of like a group leader or advisor or manager of a store. check out ___prep_candy for more of an idea, because its a very active community w/ 3 mods. in applications only communities, mods stamp members.
i'll wait to make a final decision on mods and such until more people "react," but i'm definitely keeping you in mind.

topics are always good and sometimes just a post to remind people whats going on. we of course could use more members. maybe a weekly philosophy/debate related theme thats a little fun and would make the community more active and get people thinking of philobate. i might just try that out.

sorry, i should have been more clear.

you are definitely still co-mod, as long as you want to me. if you'd like to be the maintainer in charge of layout stuff, thats awesome. i changed it because i was having fun, but i just don't have time to keep up with it.
