'LJ-Cut this' comments.

Hey guys,

Just to let you know, you do not have to comment to very lengthy entries with requests for the OP to apply an LJ-cut. If we end up approving a very lengthy or image heavy post, we are already one step ahead of you! We are sending the OP LJ-notes and supplying a comment in the post ourselves about it, often with instructions on how to apply said LJ-cut.

We appreciate each of you attempting to help, but one request and set of instructions is all that there needs to be. This keeps the posts on-track and orderly.

Thank you.

If you're going to that much trouble, why not edit in the LJ-cut yourselves?

We can only delete posts that have already been submitted. We cannot edit anything in them, only the OPs.

Ah, gotcha!

They might not be able to edit posts in the comm?

Whoops, disregard my slow ass reply. X3

No unfortunately we cannot. We can only delete, tag and change the viewing status (public vs. members, etc).

I've considered that, but because I have gmail notifier, I can usually be right here when people send in a post, so I figure they're still online to fix it.

Another problem with that is, sometimes an LJ-cut looks like it's done properly in the moderation queue, and we only find out it's broken when it's approved. The rich text editor messes things up that we can't really see beforehand.

Isn't it though? It's like I think they got the point the first FIVE DOZEN COMMENTS. And the overly dramatic ones. I remember one where someone was going on about their eyes bleeding.

May I advise a) editing the info page as this post probably will get buried pretty quick and b) add a link to how to do an LJ-cut on the info page where it says to cut long posts?

It's not a bad idea, but honestly, I would say only .. one out of every one hundred people who join the comm actually read any of the rules. And that's being generous. It is obscenely frustrating how many people break the rules and try to wiggle out of a warning by claiming they didn't know, because they didn't bother to read.

People don't seem to be into a habit of reading community rules on LJ in general, it's not just us. I wish I knew of a good way to fix that.

But see, that one person reading the rules is an improvement over nobody reading the rules. ;)

It wouldn't hurt.

Yeah, I'm not against the idea. I'm just being pre-emptively sad because I know the vast majourity won't see it anyway. I like to be pro-active with my emo!

LOL, yeah, I know a lot of folks don't read rules, but as someone who usually tries to read rules before posting somewhere new I figure maybe it'll help a few people out. (admittedly there've been times I missed because I was looking in the wrong place... but that was Yerf)

And then at least you can always say "HAY IT WAS IN THE RULES!" XD

I agree with Kayla. Sadly the rules are not as interesting as say Furry Artist Z who ran off with Furry B's dough. I've attempted to fix this by updating the look of our 'front page' (not the profile page but the actual journal face) with a few rules and our most recent mod updates.

This has helped to a degree, in my opinion believe it or not. But until LJ can allow comms to throw the rules into awaiting member's faces, we'll just have to keep doing things the hard way.
