Hi, there--I was wondering if there are people still interested in this community, like I am.

I'm here. I think the mod had some real life business? Hope everything's OK... :(

I detailed some stuff below in my response. *waves hands* IDK.

Okay, so after much thought I'm just pretty sure I don't have the energy/desire to run this community anymore. Shocker, I know, so I was thinking of passing over the reigns. You and tardiscrash have both expressed interest in helping me out. If either of you want to I will be willing to pass over management. Or turn the two of you into co-mods. Whatever works.

Let me know. Thanks.

I am! I'm just lurksome...

I'm still interested too; although, I got rather behind at the end there.

I'm still interested! I did fall behind at points, but at other times I was able to listen and participate. I like the comm because it provides structure and encourages me to make time for the audios. Left to my own devices, I often put listening to them on hold.

Okay, so I've been spending approximately the past 2 months trying to find a way to make this post that doesn't come off as "whiny mod is flouncing" or something similar.

But the truth of the matter is that there just wasn't a lot of participation going on. The effort-reward ratio just wasn't cutting it for me. You can look back over the posts and see how no one was doing anything. This was made especially frustrating because I could see on my MegaUpload account that a not insignificant number of people were downloading the audios. Which made me frustrated and a little bit angry. There are download communities if all people care about is downloading things.

So, I took some time off to reassess my feelings about this comm and as I've said I've been trying to make this post about it for a couple of months. But basically I'd love to get this place going again, but there is actually a rather lot of stuff I do to make it run and if people aren't going to participate around here I'm just not interested in putting in the effort.

See, and that just sounds like a mod flounce.

If you would like a hand with modding I would be happy to put my hand in. Personally I think links are easy enough to find but active discussion is less so. Perhaps try starting up again without the sharing that way you'll feel less used, as it where. Maybe open up a chat room for listen-a-longs? I know other comms have had some good luck with that for doing serials.

I would be happy to co-mod or just run it out right if the other person isn't interested any more.

I know how stressful stuff like this can end up being so I don't blame you at all for wanting to bow out.

Okay, so garpu has declined, she said that she already has too much going on. I'm gonna go ahead and pass over ownership of the comm. And then I will sit back and see what lovely things you do.

Also, the comm is frequently hit by spam comments. Just so you know. They're easy to deal with, but frequently very odd in content.


p.s. You need to join the comm before I can make you a mod. I sent you an invite.

Wow, thanks for the offer, but I'm really too busy right now to give it decent attention. :(

Oh, I'm definitely still interested! And I want to say that I think you do a wonderful job, Amaresu, as our mod. I know running a comm is a lot of work.

I must admit, I do tend to fall behind a bit, but I'd love to see the comm revived.

Maybe one audio every two weeks would be better, so everyone can catch up?

Just an idea. :) Or...perhaps we can have a general discussion topic? I was planning to throw out that old chestnut--"who's your favorite BF companion" just to get things going.
