So, since my previous post apparently started a whole outcry. I have changed my community settings. Disregard my earlier posts, all members can post directly to the journal without my approval. I hope that settles things. I apologize if I have upset anyone, that was certainly not my intention. I am however fairly new to the whole livejournal thing, so give me a few more weeks to get adjusted to it. If you have any other issues, let me know and I will address them as best I can.

I can understand your reasons for wanting to approve the stories, but I think it should be up to the requester to comment on whether or not a story fills the request they have made :)

Most writers are quite understanding if the fic doesn't quite live up to the request and it's usually worked out quickly and without too much hassle :O

You could perhaps let us moderate ourselves for a little while and see if that works out? If people get snarky or unpleasant, then feel free to step back in and take over moderation again, but I think you'll find that most writers are very proud of their work and would not post anything that isn't betaed to death and fits the requirements of the request :D

If any clarification of a request is needed, the writer can easily ask the requester (or you as the go-between) for more specifics so that the finished story is what the requester was hoping for?

But hey, that's just me, I don't comment much on anything because I tend to lurk and read, so feel free to ignore any of my rambly-ness *LOL* ;)

No, you have some good points, but I have already changed my settings and rules. Hopefully, there will not be any further issues. As for the requesters, I do feel a responsibilty to them for the requests to be fulfilled. "Sigh" oh well. If people don't want me to have to approve the stories, than I won't.

I wouldn't read too much into it, it's nothing personal against you for wanting to approve them, I think it's just a case of most people not liking someone else having control over what they post, especially with that has been going on with LJ lately :)

I love your community and I've already pimped it out to all my friends, I hope we get lots of writers and requesters, some of the requests so far are very interesting, and the crossovers are very creative :D

Thanks. Dang, now you made me blush again. I appreciate you pimping it out, I am hoping to get a lot of people interested in it. Requests are still open until the end of the week, did you have one?
