Officially Dead

I managed to contact contingence through a friend who co-mods her other community chocobo_stamps.
She was asked what where her plans concerning this place. And, well, she said she "dropped" this place long ago. So, this is a confirmation that we are mod-less.
And then she was asked if she could pass the community to some other person and her reply was that the contingence account had already expired and fully deleted, so there wasn't a way.
Which means if we want this community to be alive & stuff, we have to open a new one. Again.
Anyway, ideas, anyone? I offer myself to co-mod the new place, if needed. To tag, help with themes, stamp people, etc, etc. I can even make the stamps, but those may take alot of time, depending on my school-life.

I've sent a support request to an LJ staff to see if there is any way for them to pass the maintainship to someone else since the case with this community is a bit unique. If their response is no, then we have to open a new one. I also don't mind in co-mod-ing either.

Edit/ Okay I think we do have to start a new one. :/

I don't mind being a co-mod.

I suggest we ask if we may use the stamps here with credit to the stamp maker.
Dec. 13th, 2008 03:19 pm (UTC)
I doubt it. My friend said that, after she asked her about this place, she said "if they want a Super Smash Bros. community so much why don't they just start their own"

Which, in the end, is what we have to do. But either way, I don't think she would've let us use her stamps.
Dec. 13th, 2008 03:40 pm (UTC)
I'd also be more than happy to help out. ^^

I'm all for starting again here~ maybe we should get in contact with those already stamped/left and invite them to return for a second round too...

Please let me know if there's anything I can help with. :3
Dec. 13th, 2008 03:53 pm (UTC)
I am taking care of a new place as we speak C: Picking a layout, making header, etc and as soon as I am done, I'll post here again advertising the new place.

I think I'm gonna add you, asaphira_sachi and queenhyprshadow all as mods/maintainers. I think four of us will be enough to run the new place and make sure it doesn't die
Dec. 13th, 2008 05:02 pm (UTC)
I'm never leaving LJ and I always seem to have extra time each day (and I will make time this week with finals).

I'll advertise the new comm. in my journal too. A lot of my friends love Brawl, and some are members here. =)

:3 That's great~ I'm actually feeling enthusiastic, lol! :D

If there's anything in particular you want sorting... Yeah. ^^ May need a point in the right direction~ I've never been a mod before.

...Will we be restamping everyone?

And what about the 'quiz'~ will that need rewriting, or is it to stay? ^^
Dec. 13th, 2008 08:05 pm (UTC)
I think we should make a separate post in this comm. asking the other members what they want in this new community. If they're fine with being re-stamped, I say we should do so.

I think we should change the application though, so we won't be copying this community's app.
Dec. 13th, 2008 08:08 pm (UTC)
Precisely~ I was thinking similar thoughts. :3

...Oh gods, the new layout is brilliant... ^///^
Dec. 13th, 2008 08:10 pm (UTC)
Ohes~ hold the phone...

'S already been altered! :D
Dec. 13th, 2008 08:19 pm (UTC)
Hey hey again xD after many frustrating hours with Photoshop & Livejournal, the basics for the new comm are done.

ssb_ratings, I'll be sending invitations for you three, giving all maintainers-powers aswell.

I already altered the application, there wasn't many options so some questions are similar to this one but~ Check those & the rules and you all see if you want something changed, since I didn't really ask for your opinion D:

I'm only lacking of a promo-banner right now, it should be taken care of soon, though

And hm.. well, I'm thinking about opening another community called "ssb_mods", only for the four of us to discuss ssb_ratings matters. I think it's the easiest way to contact each other rather than IM or PM's, what do you think?
Dec. 13th, 2008 08:42 pm (UTC)
^^ Go for it~ sounds fine. You're right- it WOULD probably be easier. :D

(I feel like such a kid compared to you guys, but I promise to try my best. :3)
Dec. 13th, 2008 09:12 pm (UTC)
Promo banner is done <3~

I'm going to create the other comm right now, and again, invite the three of you C:

I'm just waiting for queenhyprshadow and asaphira_sachi to check the rules/application and then I think we can start promoting.

*giggles* Well, I'm quite used to manage stamping communities now but of course I had a first. I just learned my way through it. If you have any questions about it, just ask C:
Dec. 13th, 2008 09:19 pm (UTC)
:3 Ack~ it's pure love. ^^ I have dA, so I don't mind posting a link on there too, as well as my journal...

First question of many; tagging. Seems simple enough~ but do you edit existing posts? Can we do that?

...And, should we use existing format...?

stamped: (charactername)

etc. etc...
Dec. 13th, 2008 10:03 pm (UTC)
Tagging is simple. When you click on a lj-cut, there are, usually, a line above saying things like "edit" "tag", etc. To tag, click "tag" and you'll have the list of the existing tags (on that community) and to create a new one you just have to type it and tadah! There's a new tag. Sorry if I sound confusing, I'm not the greatest at explaining things :C

As really editing the content of the post, you can't. No one but the person who posted can, really. You can only delete the entry when you click "edit"

Yes. It's the common tagging system for any rating community, actually. C: I usually use !needs votes instead of !unstamped but it's the same so~
Dec. 13th, 2008 09:37 pm (UTC)
Ohes~ I've also had a look through rules/application~ made a few very minor changes. ^^ Will probably need to be checked again to make sure I haven't completely messed everything up. 0.o; It was literally just spelling- figured I should try to chip in as best as I can.
Dec. 13th, 2008 09:57 pm (UTC)
Oh thank you! English is not my first language, so grammar errors and spelling mistakes may be frequent from my part C:
Dec. 13th, 2008 10:47 pm (UTC)
Forgot to say that ssb_mods is open aswell C:
Dec. 13th, 2008 11:00 pm (UTC)
Really? I never would have noticed~ but I can sympathise. I'm learning German at college, but my German is nowhere near as good as your English! ^^;

Will go and sign up for mod community. <3
Dec. 14th, 2008 06:25 am (UTC)
I haven't gotten my invitation to be a maintainer yet. I did join the comm. though!

I think ssb_mods will work well. I'm excited =D

I read the rules and application.
On the application, pet peeves and fear are two separate things. We could make a separate line for fear.
We could also ask which battle field/stage you would prefer to fight on. It's a variation of the "what's your favorite level" question.

Edited at 2008-12-14 06:49 am (UTC)
Dec. 14th, 2008 11:12 am (UTC)
Will take care of it <3 I'm just in a rush now

I just didn't ask for the "favourite stage" because I thought it didn't have much to do with personality-application, I was thinking about using it on one of the themes. Stage or.. hm.. Enemy. Or we can use in both applications C:

Don't forget to join ssb_mods C: it's already up and matters are beings discussed!
Dec. 13th, 2008 08:51 pm (UTC)
I'm thinking it would probably be easier to just restamp everyone and start fresh. I was already stamped, and I don't mind.

And I'm not sure if you guys know of this link, but the Smash Wiki is awesomely helpful in getting info on the characters; I've found that it really helps in stamping since I'm not all that familiar with all of the characters. Just wanted to give you guys the link in case you wanted to add it to the profile page of the new com or something. :)
Dec. 13th, 2008 08:52 pm (UTC)
You're amazing~ you know that? ^^
Dec. 13th, 2008 09:06 pm (UTC)
You're an angel <3 I didn't know such thing even existed.

I added the site as the "community's link", since the access is easier for members that way. Not many visit the UserInfo after the first time C:
Dec. 13th, 2008 09:10 pm (UTC)
Awww, shucks, thanks rai_ate_my_sox and tsukihane. :)

*nods* That's a good idea! People are more likely to see it there. I'm so happy to see the interest and love going into the new com- I can't wait to start stamping again!

Edited at 2008-12-13 09:10 pm (UTC)
Dec. 13th, 2008 04:16 pm (UTC)
Can I just say how awesome you guys all are for doing this work? :)

I'll also volunteer to mod, but it looks like we have four so that should be enough. If any mods have to leave later, I'm here. :)
Dec. 13th, 2008 05:01 pm (UTC)
I don't see what's wrong with four mods. I've seen comms with four mods =D
Dec. 13th, 2008 10:00 pm (UTC)
I already mod too many communities to take on another, but I'll help with affiliations.

Thank you for doing this work. I felt as though this community didn't get the chance it deserves both times. Please leave a post when said community is ready to open.

Also, if you need help writing an application, I have a knack for those.

Edited at 2008-12-13 10:01 pm (UTC)
Dec. 13th, 2008 10:08 pm (UTC)
We're already all set, well almost. Me and rai_ate_my_sox are waiting for the other mods to read the rules/application to see if they want to change anything and as soon as they say something, people can start applying C:

The new place is ssb_ratings, you can join already though!

Thank you so much for the support. Indeed, it's quite sad. It really bugs me when people create communities and then just let them die :C

Thank you, again C: We already have the regular application made but thanks for the offer, we might need in when themes start C:
Dec. 13th, 2008 10:40 pm (UTC)
Oh wow, that's awesome you two! ♥ I've just joined, and the new place looks wonderful and fresh. Thanks for all your hard works!

I notice the form have the same questions as here. From what I've read, there was a first ssb stamp community somewhere already? Is that where the questions originated from? Out of courtesy, I feel we should credit them.

Otherwise the rules seem perfectly fine to me :3
Dec. 13th, 2008 10:43 pm (UTC)
Actually the questions were generally based from applications of my other stamping communities C: The general ones, but the ones concerning SSB, some were based on this application and some I came up with.

If you want to change something concerning the application, go ahead C: I just didn't have many ideas concerning SSB questions that weren't already used here, just one or two.
Dec. 13th, 2008 10:47 pm (UTC)
Oh okay. Then leave it as it is :3

How's the end with the stamp banners?
Dec. 13th, 2008 10:51 pm (UTC)
Urahara <3

Yes! Well, I think we should make our own. Right now I am no longer on my computer so I can't get started but as I said before, I can make stamps. If either one of you can aswell, it would be great. Specially with themes, we could take turns or so.

Oh! I also opened ssb_mods for the four of us, so we can easily contact each other and discuss whatever is needed about ssb_ratings C: as soon as all of you join, I'll set it to closed membership
Dec. 13th, 2008 11:18 pm (UTC)
*loves witty dorky characters XD*

I can get started on the stamps a little later. Gonna have to enlighten me a little on "themes" for stamping communities ^^; I'm not too familiar with those.

I've just joined! Thanks again for setting it all up.
Dec. 13th, 2008 11:29 pm (UTC)
Most used themes for stamping communities are Matchmaker and Mirror. One to find well your perfect match, and the other to find which character looks more like you.

Then there are: Friendship Theme, Enemy Theme, Stage, etc

We could also consider Item Theme and maybe Sticker Theme. But we have time for that C:

Now we're only missing queenhyprshadow's approval and membership and we're ready to start promoting and people start applying C:

If you can make the regular stamps, that would be great C: Though if you need any help, just say so!

Oh and just for future reference, here are some stamps I made for other communities:

The last one is my favourite, I must say.
Dec. 13th, 2008 11:40 pm (UTC)
The previously mentioned idea of taking turns with the themes sounds good. :3 Each will need an application guideline and stamps... anything else?

I love these stamps, btw~ they're amazing. I'd like to have a go when the themes roll around, but they probably won't be half as good. ;_;
Dec. 13th, 2008 11:49 pm (UTC)
Themes will also have their own tags, I suppose. As in "matched: wario" but other than applications/stamps, there's nothing else themes need.

Thank you ^//^ I think any of us can have a go. Unless one of us absolutly refuses to make stamps C:
And don't be silly! I'm sure they'll look awesome <3
Dec. 14th, 2008 12:06 am (UTC)
:3 As soon as I get a new tablet, (my old one died not too long ago, I'm afraid), I'd LOVE to give it a try.

For the themes such as friendship, matchmaker etc, we could just use the generic set... But as you said~ items, stickers, stages... They'll need their own.

In addition to this, there's trophy characters too. ^^

We'll have to organise the rotation, you know, let everyone know in advance what themes they'll be in charge of and when they'll be active.
Dec. 14th, 2008 12:10 am (UTC)
Usually all applications vary. Matchmaker has more questions about a love-relationship and perfect partner. Mirror usually has few questions, it's more based on photos. The other theme may be tricky~

Oh yes I didn't even think of Trophies xD

Usually we let the members pick the next theme. Open a poll like it was done here, actually. But we can work all that out later on, since we won't have a theme until January, we still have time to decide. Plus, we should take all this planning & stuff to its proper community ssb_mods xD
Dec. 14th, 2008 01:06 am (UTC)
I think we can start themes as soon as there's enough participants.

And thanks for the examples! I have a great idea for the stamps now. Will post at the mods com when I get some done tonight XD
