hi wow_noobs community members....

we haven't had an active mod for a while, so i messaged the community founders who then promoted me. i log onto lj regularly and read all the posts, so i should notice pretty quickly if there's any spam or other unseemly behaviour. i don't anticipate anything though since we've gone six months without anything happening. thanks for being such a great group of people!

i also added a future dated post that will stay at the top of the community page in case anyone needs to report anything or get in touch with me ASAP. all comments on that post are screened so nobody else will see what you write.

thanks all!

edit: since i'm unable to keep a future dated post at the top of the community entries list, i just added in a description on the recent entries page that links to that particular post instead. the post still has screened commenting so it can be used for its original purpose. the description may not show up if you have "view in own style" check marked in your navigation bar.

IIRC future dating posts doesn't actually work in communities - if you look on the front page of the comm, this post is above the future dated one. The mods of wow_ladies have a Sticky Posts topic at the top of their layout, but I'm not sure how they put it in there.

yeah i noticed it after i hit post (i'm new to being a community mod :/ ). i've been looking at the settings to figure it out so hopefully i'll get it sorted soon.

The people here are very tame so this will be a great community for you to learn on. hehe XD

haha, thanks. since the people here are so awesome, i plan to be very hands off! there just never was a good way to get in touch with previous mods when there was gold seller spam so i figured having a screened post would be pretty helpful. i also plan on going back and tagging a bunch of the older posts. other than that, i'm open to suggestions as to what would be useful for people.

fixed it with a permanent welcome note that links to the previous entry. let me know if it doesn't appear correctly for you.

Awesome, and thank you! This seems like a really mellow comm to get your feet wet in. I'm glad you plunged in and took it on! I'm embarrassed to admit I never even thought of it. I'm really glad you did.

You might want to change the future dated post so it won't make the archives weird with the year. The welcome note works fine, and glad to see someone taking over! :)

i fixed the date/time on that post so it should be alright now. thanks. :)
