Hokay, so. I've never really maintained a community before (with the exception of a music one, which doesn't count, because it was really established before I did that). Thus, I'm very much clueless about how to make this community thrive, to be quite honest.

I do know that

a) we need a FIERCE layout. If anyone is good at that, holla!
b) icons

Moving beyond aesthetics, I'm not sure how this community should work. I did a few LJ searches for other communities interested in "fitness" or "working out",and (hecka shocking), the most active ones are anorexic communities. Which, um, no. I don't want this to be a "oh my god i had a tall lite frappuccino and i want to purge" sort of community. I want it to be a motivating factor in increasing our individual level of ferocity.

So, if you have any ideas/suggestions/etc, COMMENT!

Ive never done anything like this before either. But it would be nice to have a community to get motivated in. If there is anything I can help with please let me know.

I'm really bored, so I'll make a layout for you :) I definitely think this place has potential!
oh my god, that girl is shameless

thank you! um...if you have any ideas about the layout, just go for it. the only expectation i have is that it looks fun/fierce, haha.

Alright. So the holidays are over and now I can get to working on that layout! Once I'm done I'll show it to you and then you can just tell me which changes you want made. Have you any ideas on how you want to promote the community?

Re: :)

I think that icons are probably the best way to promote. But not really LOUD, neon blinking ones.
