Introducing the Official Building a Better Community Day!

Posted by cat eyes & skinny jeans on September 18, 2010

Are you an un-selfish swapper? Are you someone who would like to see more of a community around inkPop? Are you a supporter of the November Revolution, with the motto of, Read for Fun? Would you like to get to know your fellow Inkies? If you answered yes to any of these, then come participate in Building a Better Community Day!

Originating from the mind of inkPop’s very own Donut (theliving 2.0), this day would bring a sense of a caring community to inkPop. Many members have complained about the selfishness of Inkies today, whether it’s with swapping or forum clogging, etc, and this will bring a close to all selfishness, and help build a stronger community.

What is this day all about?
At the end of every month, on the day the Top 5 gets pulled off and everyone celebrates, many Inkies will refrain from swapping, from character chatting, from posting non-writing related threads (e.g. about your boyfriend), from complaining. And they’ll join each other in building their writing skills and reading just for fun. This means no asking for swaps, no reading for swaps, and no agreeing to swaps. No character chats. No promoting for yourself. No complaining. No disrespect. For one day only.

And that’s not all. In addition to not swapping, we ask that you read at least one project that has been recommended on the forums. Whether it’s a short story, a poem, or a book. And leave a comment! Maybe even make it the most detailed comment you can. Show the community that you care about the writing world. Show the community that you’re proud to be a writer and to have a place to interact with other writers. Show that you’re proud to be an Inkie!

So come join us!
Build more friendships in the forums.
Find amazing projects that you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
Read something just because you’d like to.

For one day, join us!

And remember! That night…the party is always on!
