let's either get it back to chit-chat mode, or archive it completely. as it is, it seems rather pointless.
this community will no-longer be a place to simply crosspost something that you're also planning to post at vegancooking/veganpeople/veganism. nobody wants to have to scroll by a million posts on their feed. (exaggeration, of course, but only slightly) besides, if you're asking for advice, and you receive advice here from someone who is also in the larger communities, the people who don't watch this community will never see that person's response, and that's just a shame.
archive? yes or no?
yes. it's really redundant.
no, i like the smaller 1,000 !!! member group. it's cozy.
either way, i am putting everyone on moderated submission. any post that is either crossposted or not chitchat will not be approved.
if you have something other than chit-chat to post, read the following:
looking for cooking advice? of course there's a specific community for that. we're vegans! vegancooking (read the guidelines on the info page, as that community is very structured. like a cookbook.) have just a photo and don't want to talk about how you made it, or maybe it's from a restaurant? yep. you got it, veganfoodpics
everything else: veganpeople or veganism (they both have very different vibes. veganism is made up mostly of the newer vegans, and veganpeople is made up mostly of the experienced vegans. there is also a stronger animal rights vibe to veganpeople if that's your thing.)
visit the information pages of vegpromo and vegantravel for gigantoid lists of all of the other vegan communities on livejournal. (vegantravel for a list of all regional communities, and promo for everything else.)
