lol, but didn't delete it before someone posted saying it was a great idea. I think I'll start posting it tomorrow, and apologise if I have to take a hiatus.

Aren't you glad you posted this now, to get the full benefit of my indecision? *wry*

HEE. What I'll do is post the day's prompt and invite people to participate in comments or if they'd prefer, post separately to the comm. How's that sound?

LOL, Go ahead, impose order if you can ;) Seriously, I think that's a better idea than the free-for-all, if only because this way everyone who wanted to do it (or some of it) gets a daily prompt. And then they can have a free-for-all :)

Thank you for undertaking to do this! Would you like mod status, as an incentive? We have three mods, but we're all too lazy to do more than prod the comm spitefully when it looks like it's settling down to a nice restful nap...

Sure! I'm happy to mod (I think :) if only because I love poking large groups of happily sleeping people...

Ta-da! You are now a maintainer of book_memes. *hands you official poking stick and klaxon horn* ... the trick is to wait until it's wery, wery kwiet....

I promise to use my stick only for good, not evil.

The klaxon horn on the other hand....

The klaxon horn on the other hand....

I have also friended you, in the hopes of getting a heads up before the klaxon is unleashed.

SNORT. I would likely send out a "Does this klaxon make our comm look fat?" mods-only email before hitting the Honk button, but that's awesome nonetheless. Friending you back...
Aug. 13th, 2010 02:50 pm (UTC)
... and now I've friended you properly, actually hitting the 'add' button. Sheesh, talk about easily distracted.
