Mod annoucement / Discussion time / Meme Schedule / Promotion

Time for (logged-in) discussion, meme players.

Please keep it civil. I'm looking for sound opinions, not the competition of who shouts the loudest. Thanks!


How much do you want memes on schedule? At the moment our rules state:
Do not repost a meme that can be found on the first two pages of Bakerstreet, or that is less than a week old! (rule added on November 10, 2014) and we have a couple of memes that regularly post every week.

I get the desire to have a regular day for a meme but imho there is going to be clutter if more and more meme makers start to think their meme deserves a weekly slot. If you're one of those people, tell us why.


Would you be like to have a dedicated (bi-weekly?) promotion post for your fandom and rp communities?

Every now and then people try to start up all sorts of comms but they end up having hard time staying afloat or they simply don't get enough exposure to start with. Advertising at Bakerstreet is obviously not a miracle cure, but it might reach someone who doesn't frequent DW anoncomms, for instance.

My idea is to make the post and then both mods or members can comment with links to different comms. Maybe small banners (300x200 or 400x150) could accompany the promotions. I don't want people to have to scroll a lot when they view the page.

Or it can be as simple as copying one line of text. Check out these two new comms:

A non-anon community for RP, fandom, and general constructive chatter.

A multifandom weekly fic challenge community, where participants write a short fanfic (1000 words or less) based on a prompt.


Anything else you wish to say. There's of course the Problems post for those who don't want to voice an opinion logged-in.

THE LOVE HOTEL MEMES Please keep this subject out of this discussion. There are a few issues that I want to work with in peace. I'd prefer people to contact me directly if they want to say something, no matter what side they represent.
