Greetings, all!

Hey everyone!

So.... welcome to the Scribes' Shelter. I don't plan on being too terribly hands-on with this community in terms of maintenance, unless you guys actually are interested in the occasional writing prompt or whathaveyou. Besides, you all know how chronically unreliable and disorganised I am, and I don't want this to wind up as just one more thing for me to neglect.

I don't want to force anyone to participate more than they'd like. If you want to just contribute suggestions to improve a piece, that's dandy; if you're more interested in perusing and waiting until you're ready to post something, that's fine too. I want everyone to use this community however it best suits the individuals, since I'm sure we've all developed our own little eccentricities as we've developed our writing styles.

I also wanted to know what you guys expect from this community. Would you all rather the posts default to members only (jacket not included, sorry)? Do you guys want to do little intros every time someone new joins so everyone knows where each writer's coming from? Do you guys want me to be turbo-anal about community organisation (I'm thinking memory categories for each member or whatever)? I want everyone to feel as cozy and safe as possible, so let me know whatever I can do to accomplish that.

Also, feel free to invite anyone you'd think would be a good fit for this community. And if you'd like to see certain interests added, please let me know (don't worry, Twin -- I've already got "thesaurus rex" covered).

That's really all I've got for now. And thanks for being interested in this idea, guys. Given the people who expressed interest in this community, there's gonna be loads of awesome and talent here.

<3

Excellence.

Um, if you want mod help, let me know--because I'm in a spot where I need some sort of community to keep me sane (well, sane for me). I've all sorts of prompts and whatnot, too.

Defaulting to members only works for me, but if that proves unpopular then I can always just friends' lock later. I tend to get about halfway through introductory survey things before boredom sets in--but a quick post to say "O hai!" is a nice idea. And the community's new and might not need much organisation anyway, so I motion against you going turbo-anal.
