On the mainpage it says that it is open membership at the start at least, so I take it I dont have to post an application..?

Right. I'm actually probably going to just leave it at an open membership. I don't know...I hate communities where you have to rate people and vote and crap like that but at the same time I don't want just anyone wandering in here and claiming people's ideas and identities. I guess if it stays friends only it should be ok.

That is a relief, I was worried that it was a rating community. Those aren't good for self-esteem levels in my opinion, so I usually stay away from those. I would like to compliment you on your idea for a community, it is a good one.

Amen to that. No, I think an open community is gonna be a better idea...sometimes I see a community I'd like to join but I refrain because it's by application only....this way is better.

i agree completely with Lizbeth both on ratings and community idea.
and its a good point. what i dont get is how people assume they can take a picture claim it as their own and think that people ~aren't~ going to notice. *throws arms up in air all dramatic like* ill post in here soon :)

I don't understand it either. It always gets noticed. I've never seen it work yet and still I see people try. I really hope that this community grows but does not turn into something that attracts shallow people like that. I would hate to have to ban someone.

I don't see why anyone would want to claim someone else's identity, unless there was something.. wrong with them.
Rating communities do seem rather snobbish, you'll probably attract more people with an open community.

Well, my hope is to attract people genuinely interested in sharing their ideas/advice or getting help/tips or people who just want to show off their stuff *grin* I really don't want messed up people to come here....there are groups on live journal for that sort of thing.

I see what you mean. I'm just here for eye make-up pointers. =D
