Admin questions

1. There used to be a "home page" for this group, with posting instructions. I don't see that any more. Is there some way to post a "pinned" post that always shows at the top of the group feed if the home page isn't available in LJ any more?

2. Who is/are the moderator(s) of this group? I don't see any way to find that out nor to be able to send them messages. Contact me if you'd like me to help with admin, if it is possible to have multiple admins for a group.

3. Is this group set to open posts or Approved members only? I suggest changing to the latter to cut down on recent spam.

On the profile page is all the information, including the names of the moderators and where you can reach them.

There is a pinned post at the top of the recent entries (I'm not sure how 'feed' works and if you can't see it then), and it also has the moderators names.

They are the only ones who can remove spam and seem to have done so in previous days, but maybe due to the weekend, they are not around.

I don't see anything about moderators on the current profile page. Here is a link to a screenshot of the profile page that I see: http://prntscr.com/dyvm0z.

If I go to recent entries, I don't see a pinned post.

This is definitely not what I am seeing on the community's profile page.

This is on the community's profile page - sorry can't do a screen shot currently:

This is a community to share your cross stitch works with other interested people. We're also here to help with any embroidery questions you have!

The moderators for this community are bekscilla (previously bekki_n), and emohdee - please be aware that you can contact any of us by emailing bekki_n at livejournal dot com and mary dot vantyne at gmail dot com.

Although this community is dedicated to cross-stitch, please don't feel that you have to stick to cross stitch! Other types of embroidery or similar crafts are welcomed.

Please however, go to the LJ FAQ for all Livejournal questions.

And this is what is in the 'pinned' post at the top of the recent entries:

This is a community to share your cross stitch works with other interested people. We're also here to help with any embroidery questions you have!

The moderators for this community are bekscilla (previously bekki_n), cathouse_blues and emohdee - please be aware that you can contact any of us by emailing bekki_n and cathouse_blues at livejournal dot com and siran underscore drauka at yahoo dot com

Etc. etc.


No idea why you can't see al this, but it is all there.

No idea why I see the profile page so differently. I did figure out about the pinned post, as mentioned below. I'll wait a day or so to see if any of the moderators step in, if not, will email them.

Ok, so interesting. If I change my view from "view in own style", I do see the pinned post and info. I still don't see anything helpful on the profile page.

Both have email addresses of the moderators or you can sent them a pm via their LJ.

Hi there - I'm not entirely sure why you're not seeing the homepage stuff. I suspect it has to do with formatting changes in Livejournal itself, or something like that.

As for the spam, I'm deleting and blocking spammers as I see them (though I can't be on here 24/7). I have also moved the community from open membership to approved membership, in hopes that this will help.

If you, the readers, have the option to report spam posts when you see them, please feel free to do so.

I've removed these. Please bring any future spam posts to my attention (if I don't manage to catch them when I check in).
