When you are accepted as a member of this community, we ask that you post an introduction, telling about yourself, your interests.... This is our site, not a personal blog. We're not "wed" to any one topic, or even a genre. Help make this more of a community.
This site is built on respect. Any and all information shared will never be discussed outside of this realm (unless the post or poster wishes the information to be shared), and each person's ideals, beliefs, creed, race, and opinions will be respected. We do expect that everyone involved will realize that your own religious views may not held by all, and "preachy" behavior will not be tolerated.
In discussions, religion and spirituality may indeed come into play, we ask that if your own beliefs do not "jive" with those that are stated, that you hold your peace. Things can and will get heated now and then, and fighting over which "moral", "religious", or "spiritual" view is correct is not an argument that will be tolerated.
All women are welcome here, no matter what your sexual preference, sexual beliefs, political beliefs, or religious affiliations. This is a place of solace, unity, and friendship.
We do not mind you advertising yourself, your skills, or your products here, however, these posts or intention of posting will be presented to the moderators first. We will not accept false advertisements, or those posts that do not concern what we are attempting to achieve. Please email us, at: email@example.com. Right now, this email will come directly to me, but hopefully in the future (after I have spoken to our mod team) it will be able to be accessesed by all of our mods.
At the moment, all posts will be moderated until you have been accepted and have posted at least once in this community. We don't wish to discourage membership, but we want to ensure that our posters will not be harassed.
This is a site that has a zero tolerance for drama. There are plenty of places on the net and livejournal for dramatics. Please take that nonsense elsewhere. Occasionally, there may be difficulties between members of this community, or even with myself. I have faith that these situations can be handled in private conversations. If there are any problems that need to be discussed you can feel free to contact me or the moderators privately.
I've recently been reading through the posts and responses, and for the most part, (with the exception of introductions! POKE!) everyone has been doing a terrific job. Who isn't? ME.
I broke one of our own rules (that I wrote), and for that, I sincerely apologize. It's obvious to me that I got overly preachy on the Voting post, and I won't let that happen again. In fact, I'm going to start a separate project that is aimed at registering women voters. It will not run over into our site. My apologies again.
I do wish that the members of this site would have called me on my "preachy" behavior. I do invite any and all of you to do so. And, I will be properly ashamed that I went against one of the principles of this site.
Most of you know this, but just another reminder: We have a Twitter account and a Facebook page for outreach purposes. Please help us to spread the word! Facebook likes are always wanted, and for those a bit more daring, please post links on your own pages to help spread the word. :D. THANKS!
