Thus, due to this increased traffic, I'd like to welcome hamburger as an additional moderator here on artists_beware! Though tempting, there will be no devouring the new mod! Don't make us put it in the community rules!!
And please continue to spread the word about artists_beware; the more people who know about the community, the better it functions!
We moderators have decided to cease approving posts by proxy. What that means is, if your friend had a bad experience with an artist or commissioner, but doesn't have a LiveJournal account, you cannot make a post 'for them'. We will make rare exceptions on a case-by-case basis, but only with proof of the transaction.
LiveJournal accounts are free, and membership in Artists_Beware is no longer moderated. Requiring the involved party to make the post will enable/encourage them to interact directly with people commenting in the post, and make them responsible for the post's content.
