I was going to wait until the one week mark to do this, but it's oh dark early in the morning, and I'm terribly bored.
Think of this as a "state of the community" post.
It's been only four days, and honestly, the response has been so much more than I ever expected. So thanks to all of you with the fortitude to actually join up before posting. it means alot to me. I won't be making it manditory or anything, so no worries to those lurkers out there. However, I am thinking about some ideas which would make it better to actually join.
I've been looking at some of the other post secret communities out there, seeing how they do things, etc. (this didn't take long, as it appears that theres only two larger than this one, and only a handful that exist) Some ideas that I've seen that I really like:
1: Moderated posting of topics: This one is great, and definitly an advantage to the members. basically, i turn on mod posts, and you all post themes you'd like to see. I pick the most interesting/creative ones, and unleash them upon you all. I'm a big fan of this idea, because t means you all don't have to suffer when I wake up hungover and not feeling like making something up. (Hasn't happened yet. ...yet.)
2: Commenting on replies: This isn't really a rule or a change, but I noticed in the largest comm (_postsecret_
), people would reply to others secrets, also anon. I thought that was pretty cool, and Will be adding that to the list of allowed things to do. Whenever I get around to actually writing up a list of rules or whatever.
Now, half the fun of this place is the thrill of not knowing. This is amplified by having more posters. So, tell your friends and such. I posted on the three most relevant (in my mind) communities in buffalo. I suppose you all could showcase it to the world. not that I have big dreams or anything, but I'd like to see this thing prosper.
So, comment to this post, tell me what you think. Comments to this post are encouraged to not be anon. I need a second mod, So I'm interested in, well, how interested you are. So, show me.
