Community  
Alright, there's been a few questions as to what we should do about this community. All and any feedback is welcome and encouraged.
Do you guys want to set up a new community? I can do that easily and let you all know. Or, we could continue with this one.
Whatever you want.

I don't see why we shouldn't just continue with this one. Maybe after a few months we'll get into the flow of it and feel more like a book club and perhaps we should do a little bit more recruiting. Maybe advertise our book-of-the-month on all of the major reading communities such as bookish in case anyone is interested in the selection and wants to join up. Something simple such as "This month womenwithbooks is reading Such And Such and anyone interested is welcome to come and participate." And perhaps encourage people who are already members to mention the club when reviewing selected books in hopes of new membership.

Just a few thoughts.

Since I can't edit: My brain just sort of kicked in and I realized that this the idea of a new community is because of the unfortunately missing mod. So I retract my statement since maybe it would be best to have a new community with an active mod. My ideas for expanding membership still stand, though. :)

The ideas for recruting are great. We'll see how this continues and then we'll put up some announcements throughout the different communities. I'm going to wait to see what the other members think and if they are all in agreement I'll create a new group for us in the next few days and we'll get started.
By the way, name suggestions for the new community are most welcome.

I'll try to brainstorm a few but I don't know how good they'll be. How about something with "wonderland" in it (since I was just flipping through my copy of Alice)?

Or what have you.

I don't know, I don't know. Chances are that I'll come up with something phenomenal after the name has been decided, though, since that's how these things typically work.

Oooh I like a bunch of those!

I'm going to wait a little bit more for other members to comment on the whole idea of a new community and then I'll set up a poll to vote on the name.

As long as everything can get done in this community we may as well keep it, but if it's presenting problems since there's no mod-access then we should switch.
The Auburn Haired Magicianvalca85 on August 22nd, 2010 07:31 pm (UTC)
I think it might create a problem, but I'm not completely sure.
outstandingphenomenal on August 22nd, 2010 07:45 pm (UTC)
We should probably just migrate then.
The Auburn Haired Magicianvalca85 on August 22nd, 2010 07:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I think that's what we'll end up doing. If you have any suggestions for a community name, feel free to tell me, so I can put it on a list for us to vote on :)

I definitely think migrating is best. It would suck to get into a routine here but then be stuck with no moderator access to the community if it's needed and I imagine it will be at some point. I wouldn't mind another name either. Womenwithbooks might keep men from joining.

agreed. It's a bummer the mod isn't around anymore, and I wonder if something bad may have happened to her? I hope not, but I agree that making a gender-neutral group would be a good idea, and while I don't want to disregard the work of the original mod, I think it's fair to have a new comm so that we can have an active mod maintain it when necessary.

Yes. I like the idea of a gender neutral community :)

The Auburn Haired Magicianvalca85 on August 22nd, 2010 08:55 pm (UTC)
I completely agree. We need some masculine energy ;)
If you have any ideas for the new name let me know so I can put a list together to vote on.

I can't think of anything but I like the ones I saw you guys listing above :)
