Hi everyone, I just had a question. Since all the mods introduce themselves by now, I was wondering if you guys could tell us what's going on? I mean what's on the agenda? What will you guys do next? I assume you guys have something going on by now since it's been couple of weeks. Can you guys give us a run down? I'm really curious as to what direction this com will go, so any update on the situation would be great.

Why are you showing her that? To upset her? It has nothing to do with what's going on at the comm now. I didn't want to have to the one defending the mods cause I don't agree with alot of things going on too, including the secrecy. BUT I will say this much.
WE HAVE NOT DECIDED ON ANYTHING YET. This is the honest truth.And everyone is really hurt by all the accusations of being power hungry dictators, when none of us have even done a damn thing yet. It's all still going under discussion.
I think the only reason debbie even decided to have the posts locked was this.
1. the last time someone leaked things to the main comm there was alot of problems, and none of the mods had even been chosen yet, let alone decided to eliminate anything.
2. to protect the mods identities, I for one don't care if people see how I vote on a certain topic. I will say what I think anywhere and to anyone. However most of the other members fear backlash, for some of the decisions they may or may not make.

Debbie has said this, and I have decided to give her the benefit of the doubt. She's said the moment we ALL decided on something for SURE we will of course bring it up with the main comm. So please be PATIENT. Nothing is happening now. Seriously if you all care so much about this comm, then why hasn't anyone even entered the layout contest yet? So far only samuraiblues and sixthdivision have made submissions.

Do people just not know about it? I mean you guys realize that we aren't going to implementing ANY major changes until we get the layout organized right? Seriously stop worrying about it. We are not going to do anything without the majority of the member's blessings. Ok? can we all stop with the conspiracy theories now? We are all just normal fangirls like you. Not bosses, dictators, gods, or anything else like that. Just fangirls. Please do chill yourselves. Some of us shocking though it may be have A LIFE outside the internet and can not come here and deal with all this drama everytime. I hope everyone feels more at ease now.

WHAT? That can't be true @______@ I mean I understand that not everyone can do such things but still...just 2 submissions is...wtf....(If I would be good in such things like S2 layouts I also would have submitted v____V) Oh that's sad.....T__T"

not comenting in the mods stuff since I won't really have an opinion about it till I see 'official news' then I can see if i agree or not and give my personal opinion xDDDDD

but I want to comment on the layout contest...

not so long ago I wanted to do a layout contest for one of the comms I own , it has also a lot of members... and actually NOBODY submitted a layout. It is SO frustrating to see how everybody wants things done but never collaborates to have them done.... :/ i wish I had the graphic skills to do it myself ://

After the whole talk of getting mods, I got very nervous and worried. After a while I started to calm down abit. I wanted to know what was going on everyday. So, I thought I would wait until the mods have been chosen. I was thnking that a plan or something would have been thought of.

Since, it's been a week the mods have been chosen and announced, so I thought it'll be ok to post this question now. Sorry for being impatient.

That link to jesecrets really made me nervous and anxious now. >< But, I still think it's good I got it. If one of the rumors turned out to be true it won't be such a big big blow than. But then again I'm gonna be thinking about it all day tomorrow and who knows how long. ^^;

Kanjani8 is my only fandom that got me so obsessed that I'm thinking about them constantly. Only for them would I ever get this worked up. Pathetic I know. ^^;

Again, sorry for the post.

Seriously if you all care so much about this comm, then why hasn't anyone even entered the layout contest yet?

Maybe it's less the lack of good-will and more the lack of the required knowledge? More than half of the people I know who have individualized layouts had them done by other people (in one of those request-communities), because they don't know how to do it themselves. And even the people who have the basic knowledge might be hesitant, because it's one thing to throw something together for your personal journal and another thing to create a layout for the community of your favourite band...

But nonetheless, it might be good if the mods announced the layout contest again, or had a reminder, because as far as I can remember, there was only one (the original) post about it and there are so many posts in this community every day that it's not unlikely that some people have just plainly missed the whole thing.

You're not the only one with questions. ^___^

I posted some questions on behalf of guingel and myself the day before yesterday in this post by debbie_chan.

We didn't get an answer yet, so would any of the mods reading this also have a look into the comment I made there?

(The "we didn't get an answer yet" is not meant as criticism, btw, we understand that it sometimes takes a few days to reply to a comment! It's just that, since there are already questions asked here, we decided that we might just join in, so you get all the questions in one place...^^"
shikurai17 on October 28th, 2007 01:03 am (UTC)
You guys asked very smart questions. All I asked if the mods were gonna post in alternative egos. ^^;;

I just answered your questions :) I hope the answers help some :D
renchan5 on October 28th, 2007 01:41 am (UTC)
I answered them there at the post, but I`ll put this here as well because others should see what I wrote as well:

I`ll try and answer some of your questions here. I just clicked the link you put up in the other comment, so I don`t know what others have said just yet. But I`ll do my best.

Decisions are made as a mod team, and then brought to the community as a whole. Debbie put in a system where the mods vote, and if there is at least a 6 out of 7 majority (Debbie and yuki_hotaru abstain for those votes), the issue or question is brought to the community as a whole in the form of either a poll or discussion. As of this point, we haven`t brought the first issue to the comm yet (the downloads), but we will be doing that soon.

I like your idea of each mod having a specific area to look after, and I`ll talk to Debbie about that because I think she and the other mods would agree with you.

As for why she choose who she choose, Debbie tried her best to pick a group of people with varied backgrounds, ages, home countries, etc. The age range of the mods is 16-26, for example. Some of us were picked for the fact that we have past modding experience (osakaromanesque), some were picked because they are passionate about their opinions (boneprincess88), and some were picked because they try to look at things from all perspectives while keeping a level head (kipani_mariko & myself). There are reasons for each of us being choosen, and I can assure you that Debbie didn`t play favorites in choosing the mods.

I know you guys meant for the best, but you know...

All of this would have been nice to know from the start. In fact, reading all of these...I don't see the need for the discretion you guys used in the first place. I think that may have been what rankled people most. I know this wasn't the case, but it certainly felt like you guys had gone off and created a secret mod club and we weren't allowed to know anything about decisions that would affect how we obtained things in our fandom. Thanks for finally coming clean...but couldn't you have done that from the start?

Ok I already said why debbie chose to lock the posts from the get go. It was her idea and it's not like she didn't have a point. A friend of mine already made a good point about this as well.

"there are mod only communities because the mods are there to discuss things in private related to the community in a far more controlled environment, without everyone and their mother butting in to make it difficult. Then things are brought out to the open for community wide discussion"

That's how it is. Also if you have a problem then SAY IT. If you have a question than ASK IT. Kurai was concerned so she asked so we answered her. That's why it took this long. people were busy gossiping in secret, when all they had to do was make a post in the main comm.

I am not mad at you for saying what you said but I want you to understand why things had to be this way. If I had my way I would have posted about the rumors earlier today. But we thought waiting until debbie returned would be a good idea. So that's why the rumors weren't addressed earlier. As ren said, none of us have a problem with you asking questions. So in the future if you feel we are being unfair then please tell us so. How else are we supposed to know?
tigerize02 on October 28th, 2007 02:25 am (UTC)
i thought that they told us from the start that they would not make any major decision without informing us first. debbie chan just got the mod team together. they need to talk things over first, make a list of what needs to be done and such then they will inform us what they want done to the comm or ask for opinions. they are not going to post everything cuz that will start a riot in the comm. jumping to conculsion is not the way to go, debbie chan and the mod team just want to make the comm better. the mod comm was to make it easier to discuss what should be done for the comm. but again: they did say they would inform us what would be done to the comm. before actual changes take place.

i feel like i'm back in high school and college again and that everyone is gossiping about a certain group of people and rumors starting flying around the school and everything got out of control. people, remember that this comm. is to support he love for k8, this comm. is for the fans to share their love of the boys. we all agree that the comm. needed some change. debbie chan has make it clear that she wanted to make this comm a better place and that she would not once again implementing changes without informing the community first. everyone just relax and let them organize what needs to be change and they will tell us what's going on, then you can express your likes or dislikes about the change. DON'T JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS AND STARTS RUMORS CUZ THAT MAKES THIS COMM. LOOK REALLY BAD. We want this comm. to be the best comm. that there is, not the most problematic and argumentive comm. ever.
