Hey, this is the first post of my very first community, born from an idea here. I'm your friendly Neighborhood Mod, memphis_letters or "roxdy" if you like.

We are not an official sister group of scans_daily, but we hope to someday be!

And if this grand experiment is going to work, we need participation! So let's have this be the first theme week suggestion post. Please comment with theme week suggestions. Depending on response/interest I'm going to create a poll either mid-week or by the weekend so we can kick off a theme week on Sunday!

Okay, if this sounds completely messed up and you think you can do it better, comment or e-mail suggestions! Or apply for a mod spot as I indicate in the userinfo. I'm thinking three is the magic number here.

Also! We need a community icon (or 3). Bragging rights to the designer(s).

I have some icons you may use if you'd like...

Go through here, and use anything you'd like.

Go ahead. I can't use em all. Credit is appreciated, and if you steal mt Booster one, please don't use it in Scans_daily, I'm trying to make myself recognisable there. (I am such a dork).

Nice! I might have to snag the Justice Friends one myself, with credit of course.

Hmmm, I was thinking more along the lines of a community-specific icon, do you think you could give it a stab?

I can try!

Anything specific you were thinking of? I've only got MSPaint, but I'll give it my damndest!

I did this really quickly, but I had fun with it.

Do you have any layout offers yet? I'm no expert, but I'd love to play around with this and make it a bit more polished. I did my own LJ, so I guess that's an example of my work.

Consider yourself hired!

And, I think I heart you. Muchly.

Awesome! As long as you're not expecting it, like, tomorrow, I'd be happy to start fooling around with the layout. You'll just need to email me the password for the community. My email is my username [at] gmail (dot) com (sorry, spyware paranoia).

I'm glad you're using the icon! Though, if I can nitpick, my username has no 'k' in it, as you have me credited.

And, aw, I heart you, too. You started this community! That's awesome!

Ach, sorry about the name, this is what I get for refusing to wear my glasses at night!

Yeah, take your time, I'm going to let this community simmer for a bit while details of things are worked out.

Ummm, password for the community... I have no idea what that is... I'll just give you Maintainer status? Will that work?

Oh, yeah. I have no idea how communities work. I'm sure that'll work, thanks!

I played around a little bit and got something simple and functional as far as a community layout goes. Take a look and see what you think. Any suggestions are certainly welcome, as I'm not sure exactly what you had in mind. I think the header's fun, but maybe it doesn't say what you want it to. *shrug* Like I said, I'm totally open for suggestions.

Also, I went ahead and credited myself in the userinfo, if that's all right.

I like the layout you made! Although once I get some sleep, maybe you or I could come up with some clever text to fill the empty balloons? (If it's not to problmeatic to edit the image to do so?)

Again, I'll probably be more recptive tomorrow morning when I'm well-rested.


Crediting yourself is perfectly fine, I was cut off from the internets for most of today otherwise I would have done so myself.

That's totally fine. Or, I could leave the original text, which was (from left to right):

"I'm leaving...ugh!"
"You don't get away that easy!"

"*Whew!* This guy is strong!"
"And this one seems to have super-strength, too!"

Let me know what you want.

Ugh, pretend I spelled "problematic" correctly in the comment I made. :D
