COMMUNITY: Two Heads are Better than One

Over the past couple of years, our little community has grown quite a bit. Gothic & Lolita style clothing is more readily available than ever before, and there are more and more people who wish to acquire it. The community has been flooded with "Want to Buy" and "Want to Sell" posts, and often the entire front page will get filled up with sales, pushing real content to the second page or beyond in a single day.

I know many people don't keep egl on their friend's list simply because they don't want sales post clogging up their page. Many members get frustrated when trying to find information, pictures, or tutorials because they have to wade through so many sales posts to find what they're looking for.

The moderators would like to promote the growth of the community and establish it as a place where people can share, grow and learn in the Gothic & Lolita style. We feel that it will be easier for everyone if we split the community into two sister communities. Both communities will be moderated by the same team, and they will act as one large community. All current sales standards will apply in the new sales community.

egl will remain the same as it is now, but all sales posts and "Want to Buy" posts will have to be made in the new sales community, egl_comm_sales. This way, if you're only interested in non-sales posts, you can just read the main egl community, and if you're interested in buying something, you will have all of the sales easily at your disposal in egl_comm_sales. Each community will be obviously linked on the main journal page of the other.

With the new two-community format comes a new journal layout as created by emiko. Each month, the header graphic will feature new artwork as submitted by community members. The artist will be credited in the sidebar and given the opportunity to have a link to their webpage in that space. The artwork must be a depiction of our new mascot girl, Sophie. The only requirements that must be met are that she must have honey-brown hair in a hime-cut and brown eyes. You can feel free to dress her however you would like. Each month, the moderator team will select their two favorite artworks to go in the header image of each community. You can email emiko with your submissions.

If anyone has any questions or comments regarding the changes in the community, please make them in this post, and they will be answered to the best of my ability. ^^
