Welcome to mod_pairing. This is a community for people who moderate (and join) the various pairing communities on Live Journal.
NOTE: Do not promote your community here if it is not a shipper community. That means that any community that does not focus on a specfic pairing or pairings should not be posted here and will be deleted.
"Pairing Community" what is that? It’s a community that focus is on a single relationship or multiple relationship of real celebrities or characters from any number of movies, television shows, etc. mod_pairing was inspiried by the idea of mod_stillness and because the owner of this community was sick and tired of having to hunt down communities for her favorite pairings one by one. It is here as both a resource and reference to anyone who needs it.
I want to create a pairing community! What do I do? First you check the master lists linked below and make sure the community you want to create doesn’t already exist. Then create the community. You can take the rules at from joe_sonny if you would like and edit them to best fit for community and pairing. However, you must keep the focus of your community on a specfic pairing or spefic pairings, otherwise it wouldn't be a pairing community. Once you’ve created your community post about it in this community so I can add it to the master list. It’s also good to know some html and how to make screen caps, and post polls.
What do the moderators of a pairing community post here? Anything you can think of as long as it has to do with running your community:
- Discuss moderator questions, like rules, tags, etc. - Need advice on dealing with a rule breaker/cheater? - Did you discover a cheater/troll in your community? Share it here with us, let everyone now about it so they can keep a look out in their communities. - Want to learn how to make/find better screen caps? - Need help figuring out ways to make your community even better? - Are you looking for communities to affiliate with? - Need someone to make some screen caps or winner/award banners for you? - Do you need a co-mod or someone to take over your stillness community?
Go ahead, ask away!
I am a member of a pairing community what can I post here? If you have a question or complaint/concern about something, post it here. If it’s a complaint be sure to post it very politely. Also keep in mind that if you are talking about a specific community, chances are that the mod of that community is a member here. People who wish to see a community created for a specfic pairing but do not feel able themselves to take on such a task can request community creation here. There may just be someone else here up to the task!
Can I post here requesting for people to join in my community? Yes you can but please keep community promotions down to once a week. Anyone found not following this rule will be banned from mod_pairing.
