Congrats :D I wasn't aware that this comm even exists O_o
I'm glad it's in your capable hands now 'cos it sure needs better organizing ( like posting format that varies from one vidder to another and could include more info than just program, spoilers and summary). I see you already fixed tags :)

Thanks ^_^
Do you have any other suggestions of things you'd like to see change? I really want to make the site become a great resource for all Twilight vidders - a place people actually USE. :D As for posting format, what I was thinking was:
Audio Source:
Video Source:
Is there anything there you think should be added/subtracted?

And Twilight deserves to have a great vidding comm on LJ :) It makes me happy to see you got to mod one and that you are so enthusiastic about it :)

I find that posting format makes things so much more easier and I can only wish that other vidding or fan fiction comms, especially multifandom comms like vidding, would use one.

I like your idea :) I assume the title would be in the subject line (as it usually is) and "Link" would be either for streaming sites or to the original post in your LJ (so you can have all comments in one place). I see no need for "warnings" (for AU vids it is possible but generally Twilight isn't a horror or porn so ... :) ) or "spoilers" (sources are already listed in "Video Source"). Of course, people should be allowed to add more after the required info about the vid.

I like when people post their art and I'm not against embedded vids except when they are flashy or huge. Vidding comm has a nicely put warning about this :) (It's the first simple rule in their profile page.)

What else...
Since I mentioned vidding comm to many times :) ...it would a good idea to let them know that this comm exists. They have an incomplete list of other vidding communities.

Finding and connecting to vidding awards sites, the ones that accept Twilight vids, would be nice. By that I mean serious competitions, not something like the ones you can see on YT. I know only a few of them.

I saw that Video Awards are mentioned - Is there going to be a contest? That's a good idea too.

Info posts like "NM DVD coming next week" or info about extended/deleted scenes in various DVD editions maybe...?

That's all I can think of now :)

Thanks ^_^ Yeah, I am super excited about this comm. I hope it doesn't fizzle and die on me. I was just trying to organize the posts, though, and realized I can't reformat them :/ So basically, either everyone has to follow the posting rules or I have to delete their posts... Which sucks because until the site becomes a popular place to post, I don't want to deter people from posting by being strict with the rules. :(

Thanks for the suggestion about Vidding - you're right that their list is incomplete. And a link to award sites would be extremely useful for members. I'm not sure if I can tell the "serious" competitions from the ones that aren't, but hopefully I can dig up a few to link to.

As for Video Awards in the comm. - yeah, I was planning to begin a vidding competition as soon as the site starts getting frequent posts. I like the idea of info about the DVDs too - I actually have a chart I made for myself way back when, so that I could decide which edition to buy ^_^ haha

Thanks so much for your input!!!

He, he..by serious I meant already established awards sites like AOV , EDA or CJA. Those are the only ones I have bookmarked that accept Twilight but I'm sure there are many more.

haha - ok. Cool, I was worried there was some elite list of award sites I had no idea about ;P
