Okay, some things I wanted to talk about. I've tried to recruit some new members to participate in the projects lately for the April Birthdays, and here are a few updates. I've decided that if the events we hold dont have a lot of participants, I will try to advertise using my personal journal. The ones I try to focus on the most would definitely be the birthday projects, because they are a very important day to each of the boys. As for other projects, I'll have to think about it more. It depends on what type of project it is and stuff, because if its a bad project and it has no participants because no one wants to participate in something so stupid, then we wont do it again. Ever.
And how about a big welcome to our newest mod: </a></b></a>nicolearoni
who will now help with translations. Lets all welcome her into the family with a big hug and plenty of smiles!
Now for the fun stuff. First of all, anyone new to the community, please refer to our Rules
post for information on following the proper rules and how to contact any mod if something should happen. If you would like to know a little more about the community, please refer here.
I've said this before, and I'll say it again. I am going to start being very strict on the rules that I have come up for this community. The one rule that I will be paying attention to the most is definitely the writing rule. Personally, I am a fairly good writer, not brilliant, but good enough. So one thing that absolutely drives me nuts is the fact that people nowadays cant write a proper letter even if their life depended on it. So pay attention to how to write you letters. Just know one thing though, the letters you send us to get translated will also be sent to the boys as well. We really wouldnt want any of the Japanese speaking boys to say that your writing skills are horrible, now would we?
I have also decided to make this community member-only. Just another way for me to make sure that people will actually participate. This is just for me to know who actually reads the post and who doesnt. So, if yo plan on participating in our little projects, send an email to email@example.com with all of the mods' names as well as your name, and LJ ID. Any members whose email I did not received will immediately be removed from the community. By the way, I should get your email by April 18, 2009. That's when my spring break starts and I can pay full attention to this community.
Comments are much appreciated. We love to hear from our members, no matter what it is that you have to say. It makes us feel that you actually read what we have to say and you have your own opinions on it. If you have any special ideas for projects and such, they are welcomed. I, personally, will be expecting comments on my post, just so I know people are actually reading. For other mods, I'm not sure if they demand it, but leaving a comment here and there will definitely lift some spirits~
