Hey mamas, just a gentle reminder about the DDC Guidelines, found here. Specifically:
Some of the things you're talking about here are fine; spotlight threads, sharing yummy meals that you can keep down (or that aren't too tiring to make!), even the occasional silly game thread all are OK. Swaps, however need to go in the swaps forum, and book clubs would need to go in the book club forum. If you want a book club that is limited only to your DDC, you would need to take it off the boards.
It sounds like this is shaping up to be a fabulous DDC. If I can be of any help, or if you have any questions or concerns about what I wrote, please feel free to PM me.
Would "article" discussions count as a book club?
Actually, so many folks have said they have such limited time to read as it is, I think that idea's been pretty well quashed anyway...
We could do weekly "topic" discussions, though... based, perhaps, on articles out there... that could be interesting and would facilitate us getting to know one another.
