I know this comm hasn't been active for several years, but I'm wondering if there is interest in reviving it.

I love all things journal and planner, and I would really enjoy an active comm devoted to talking about and showing them off, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel if I don't need to. If enough people are still watching this comm and interested in reading and posting here, I think it makes sense to use an already existing comm with a built-in readership instead of starting another.

A wonderful new comm, [community profile] bujo, just started up, but it's devoted entirely to bullet journaling, and while I enjoy reading about bullet journaling, I'd also be interested in a comm with a wider focus.

What do y'all think? How many of you are interested in posting/reading new content here? Do you think it would be better if I created a new comm? If I do create a new comm, I want to open it to all forms of planners and journals, even electronic ones, in addition to all the ancillary stuff that goes along with journaling like pens, paper, notebooks, stickers, stencils, and etc.

Thoughts? Ideas?

You beat me to making this post! (I'd planned on doing it on Sunday.) A couple of weeks ago, I PMed one of the mods about getting mod access here but haven't heard back.

No, it isn't a good sign. :/

Yes, I would! My main plans for reviving this comm were dealing with the tags and making a monthly discussion post. The new, largely unmodded comm and lack of rules is pretty much along the lines of what I'd like, too. Also, I'm perfectly happy coming up with a tagging system; I used to be the tag mod for Back to Middle-earth Month before I became head mod.

My main concern with making a new comm is that there's no guarantee people will be active there. On the other hand, having mod access is a huge upside.

Modding stuff might be better discussed via email or PMs or something, so if you want to?

A revival might be fun. I used to post here but it's pretty quiet.

Of course. I used to follow multiple paper-journal communities on LiveJournal. Maybe it might help me get back into paper journaling myself.

I'm not sure how active I'd be, but I'd be interested. Especially since I've been keeping my paper journals so much more recently.

I think (assuming one can contact the mod of this one - I think I saw someone above say that was a problem wrt: posting privileges?) it would probably be more effective to try to keep this community going. Aside from the obvious username, it probably already has varying degrees of bloggers (be they highly, moderately, lightly, or inactive) who will eventually see it. Plus newcomers will see it has more posts.

However, if contacting the mod doesn't work, I suppose I could move.

Sure. But I don't know how much more active a new comm would be than this one. Is there a bulletin board sort of thing for DW, where an announcement could be made that this comm is being rekindled, or a new one started, and interested parties should drop by, or something?

All very valid points. I say go for it. Just, if you would, post a notice here when the new comm is up, with a link? Thanks!

I think it'd be better to just revive this community. There are already members here and the community name is the best option, I think :)

I also post in inactive communities sometimes and people are still reading/replying, even though they don't make posts themselves.
