Re: Need Your Advice As Mod Of Challenge Comm, From Gabby

Well, I wouldn't do it like every week or month or ever, just this once and honestly, because things are so unorganized and its making me crazy, its like an OCD thing though I don't have it. If I did it, it would be all in one day so it is all fixed and done and not you know, drawn out.

Wow...that's quite a few for people to see on the friends list. I think there is a way you could get around it, though. Leave the current posts up but repost the others. When you post them in the new order, set the new ones to Members Only. Then we you are finished, you can have everyone become a member and delete the first set of posts. You will want to make sure you have all the comments, though, because otherwise people will panic if a challenge is still open but their entry is missing.

Re: Need Your Advice As Mod Of Challenge Comm, From Gabby

Basically, leave the stuff up till everyone has become a member?

Course not everyone who has signed up from the very beginning has even accepted the invite to the team comms let alone the main comm...

So, I think I am going to make the team and main comm to where they can join but they have to get approved to be accepted into the comm, make sense?

How long, after I post the old entries and all the new stuff I want, should I give people to join the main comm?

Oh, I wouldn't worry about leaving it up until people join. I'd just leave them up until you have all of the members only posts to replace the current ones. Then tell everyone that they need to join the community (or you can actually send them an invite) and just say that it's so that people who aren't members can't post on the entries. As soon as the new posts are up, I'd delete the old ones.

Yes, it makes sense to have approved membership! I have mine set so that I have to invite them.

People should join fairly quickly. If it takes them more than a few days, then I'd send them a PM reminding them about it.

If you need help with the community, let me know!

Great, cause I was going to spend like this weekend doing it so its ready for Monday.

As for membership, I have it invite only too for teams but some never have joined and then I found out some never GOT the invites so I had to resend em so I am thinking its easier to say you can join but its restricted to my approval, =)

I have 2 Team Leaders per Team and I have them take care of their teams. They send the invites and they check to make sure that their team members are all there. That way all I have to worry about is the main team.

Re: Need Your Advice As Mod Of Challenge Comm, From Gabby

I think you have those set as public entries because I can see them! You might want to switch them to Members Only!
