400+ Members and Membership issues  

First of all, thank you to everyone who joined and is watching this community! We now have 429 members, which is an awesome number, and I hope the community will grow even more, especially with all the buzz XF2 is generating this year.

Since I took over maintaining it last fall, I've planned a number of things to improve the quality of this community even more- but with many other interests and obligations occupying my time, gillianleigh hasn't been in my focus as much as I wished it to be. I'm planning to change that in the near future- so here's a warning of many more mod-posts to come. ;)

The community will remain members-only, but these mod-posts will be made public, so people stumbling over this place can get an idea of what's going on here.

Membership is still moderated and recently I've got a couple of requests I had to reject due to the reasons stated in the current profile (which has been a WIP for months now...so don't wonder that the links don't work).

These reasons are:

- your journal has been created within the last two months
- your journal is empty (I can see if or how much you post, even if your journal is f-locked)
- your profile is empty (no bio, interest, friends, etc)

A journal like this, that seems to be inactive, is not very trustworthy, and since this community had issues with trolls and other drama, we've implemented this kind of policy, just as xfiles has.

If you are one of these users, who have been rejected, feel free to comment here and explain why your journal has been inactive, and why you would like to join. I don't mean to discriminate new users, everyone starts out at some point, we're just being cautious. Tell me a little bit about your journal, and I'm positive I can give you access.

DO NOT SEND MULTIPLE MEMBERSHIP-REQUESTS, if you don't hear from me immediatedly. I sometimes take my time deciding whether I accept or reject a user, revisiting your profiles and journals multiple times to see if there have been changes made. Trying to get in by applying over and over again will only clutter my inbox, make it harder for me to keep up and annoy me. You don't want an annoyed mod. Just don't do it. You have not gone unnoticed, I will get to you eventually.

Hey, I've just started a new journal, I used to be receivenothing and I'm currently in the process of moving to this one, just wanted to give the heads up before I applied here again, and was wondering if it was okay to be accepted because I was already a member, if that makes sense? You can check out the latest post in receivenothing to see that I've changed usernames - sorry for probably making no sense, hehe, thanks alot - btw, great community!

Thanks for reading the rules and letting me know! I already approved you.

Eh, I need to work more on it. Alas, no time. ;) But thanks.

Hi I applied for membership but was turned down, so I read the instructions here which is why Im leaving this note :)

I only joined live journal yesterday, and I requested to join as I am a huge Gillan Anderson and X Files fan. At the moment I'm just finding my way around here, and I plan to fill in my journal soon - I have since filled out my interests etc....

I hope I now fit the criteria :) x
