Couple quick things. Bean Daily is now a moderated community to join. That means a new member who wishes to join up will need to wait to be approved. This was done for two reasons: we want to keep out trolls that have been hitting other LJ communities and keep this mess off our community.
If you don't have the time to read the link above right now, the basics of it are - some person was joining a series of communities on LJ and posting outright disgusting pics of people and children. It was not a pretty thing. We don't want that over here, so we went moderated membership to stop any trolls from joining.
The other thing we wanted to let you all know about: because of the LJ/6A crap that has been happening, we will be doing an archive backup of bean_daily. There are so many posts, I would hate to ever lose them. With that in mind, there are a few places that I have reserved over the years with the name bean_daily. Govi and I chatted, and the best place is likely to be IJ. (insanejournal)
I have left LJ myself because of what happened this summer with LJ/SA, and I am now on IJ. I believe Govi is still here on LJ :) What this means is, if anything weird or wacky shows up on here, she can still be contacted on LJ you can get me right here.
If you also left or are leaving LJ and are moving to IJ, I have set up a feed there for this community so you can keep watching it:
If you add that feed to your IJ list, bean_daily will show up on your friends list. :) Does anyone know of or has set up another feed on another site? Let me know and I will list it here. Did anyone leave LJ and head to another site other than IJ? Do you need another feed set up on another journaling site? Comment here, and we will see what we can do about getting it set up.
Just to be clear: bean_daily is staying right here on LJ. No plans to move it at all, unless LJ explodes at some point down the road. If that ever did happen, we would be on IJ, unless we post otherwise. Does that help? :)
The archive will be done once a month but right now we have to back up nearly 5 years worth of posts. We talk a lot about Sean, don't we? *g*
In case anyone wants the archive and backup community it's here: bean_daily No posts there, they all still come through here. But feel free to join it if you'd like to add it to your list. :)
If you have any questions/concerns, feel free to drop a line in the comments. :) Now... back to Happy Bean thoughts.
