***! Members of these communities are currently allowed LIBERAL privileges such as promoting their own journals or communities, seeking LJ friends, and posting irrelevant nonsense!

ABOUT communities101:

communities101 is a central place where you can find a list of many different and progressive communities. More communities from other moderators, across LJ, will be added in the future - so keep checking back in. You are welcomed to join any community on the list - there's no need to join communities101!

*If you do join communities101: This site will allow you to view posts from many communities via YOUR FRIENDS PAGE - and you can choose to join or not join them later! You can view new posts from my communities and from OTHER communities - without clogging up your friends page! How cool is that?!

It also allows YOU to promo, search for, or suggest new communities by postsing HERE in communities101!


THE 3 WAYS YOU CAN USE communities101:

1 - "CHOOSE" any community on the list and join. Nothing else!
2 - "WATCH" if you only want to sample communities and other posts via your friends page.
3 - "JOIN" communities101 if you wish to post about communities, etc., some time in the future.

2 & 3: Be sure to Watch for communities101 posts on your FRIENDS PAGE...

When you see a post saying "communities101 SAMPLER", hit the link and view new posts by dozens of communities, which you may read and enjoy. (You may also choose to join any of those communities).

TEST: http://madman101.livejournal.com/friends/communities (madman101's communities)

NOTE: You will only be viewing PUBLIC POSTS, however, (unless you join those communities).

You are invited to promo your own communities here as well. You may also make posts asking questions, making suggestions, and so forth. This community, and all my communities, encourage creative posting for the time being - posts seeking FRIENDS, e.g., are fine. This is all about networking.

NOTE: Due to a few harrassers, all of my communities are now MODERATED MEMBERSHIP, and some have MODERATED SUBMISSIONS. This is for the benefit of all members. We do not encourage the same old irrational hatred we find in many other forums, and we don't want trolls fomenting agitation behind member's backs, seeking personal info or offering links to trojans or hacked IPs, etc. In addition, anyone who simply chooses to WATCH any of my communities will not have their LJ user name posted. Just thought you'd be happy to hear of these protections. Please try to make all your posts MEMBERS ONLY unless they offer a benefit to the public at large. Also, we strongly encourage LJ CUTS, so we don't defeat ourselves by clogging up other people's friends pages. OK - take care...
