OKay, so I know we have a few problems to go over.
I'll start with the most obvious: Extended amounts of time before someone is stamped.
I know this can be very annoying for applicants into our community and for that, I apologize. We've been having a bit of a problem with our mods. aozoract quit the community (there's a post if anyone is interested in why) and I haven't seen debaser_ (our head mod) around here in a while. However, a new mod (loveisacrime) was appointed, should they choose to take the position. If not, someone else should be appointed. What this is adding up to is that, right now, I seem to be the only active mod in the group. And only mods can stamp people. And due to personal problems with my apartment, I will NOT bring my computer over there so I'm having to stamp when visiting my parents. I KNOW its an inconvience. I'm sorry. Believe me, I am trying. However, there is another cause of this problem, which leads us to problem number two.
No one is around. We have very few active members this summer. There are probably a thousand and one reasons for this, but there it is. I'm going to try and clear with debaser_ some sort of protocol. Maybe something like...if you haven't voted in 3 months, then you will be put on probation. If you don't vote any of the next 5 times, out you go. I think that once I get my computer to be at home with me (when school starts), I'll be able to fool around with someting like that. Theme weeks also need to be reinstated and that shall be done. I realize we never judged our last one...we probbly won't, but if anyone wants to, let me know and I'll repost everyone's entries.
Anyway. Sorry for the long post. If anyone wants to communicate with me about anything I said in this post or, for that matter, about anything else you can:
