Just a friendly check-in to get a few things off the plate.

First of all, we've noticed there are quite a few new community members who are new to lj as well. Welcome to our new cuppers, and we hope you're happy here! We do ask that everyone review the community rules, though. (Maybe old members as well :) The rules are almost entirely about making sure the community is open, accessible, and welcoming to everyone, and we really appreciate your help with them.

Second of all, where to put things. Are you new to the community and want to say a bit about yourself? Welcome! We have an introduction post right here. Have you got suggestions, comments, or concerns? Are we missing a tag? (I swear, we do get to these!) Do you have a design feature suggestion? Is something just bugging you? Please tell us about it here! Feel free to comment anonymously if you don't want your name attached. Do you have a cup to sell or trade, are you looking for a cup, or are you a cup merchant advertising your shop? mc_sales is where it's at!

Third of all, I'm going to restart the weekly news feature (sticky-post thing) within a few weeks, as soon as the dust settles from finishing my Big Life Project. I'm thinking it would be more effective as a community-driven exercise, though. If you have suggestions for a featured post or a snippet of cup gossip or news, feel free to message me or leave a note at our open post.

That's utterly everything I've got on my mind! Thanks for reading, and for being generally so awesome.

It wasn't directed at you! I post a reminder now and then because we all forget sometimes - I do too! Please don't take it personally :)

I love this community, so thank you for keeping things going!

For the news feature, apart from the obvious, new cup brands, could we post about promotions like the one Fleurcup has going for the next 2 days?

I like the idea of having one introduction post/thread, but the trouble is that it doesn't get bumped up by new comments. I'm not sure anyone ever reads it.

This is, of course, a problem with the way LJ works and may not be fixable.

It is, but the alternative is filling the community with introductions. Perhaps we should change it so that introductions go in the periodic sticky news post, so that at least everyone will have a chance to see it.

That's not a bad idea at all, worth a try I think!
