11:54 PM 10/2/09 · The base idea of a community is to make something interesting so that when the moderator's not posting themself, members tend to take up the slack and fill the time between with their own stuff appropriate for that place.
These are the 15 places I'd like more posting members to join:
Random: THE NUMBERS WILL NOT LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!
Theme: quirk of fate
