It's TACTICAL.
And DEFENSIVE.
AND A PEN.

It is totally time for the weekend to start.

Fandom Grammar Comm, Take 2

Time to start planning out this fandom grammar community with my trusted fellows. This is the time for you all to weigh in with any thoughts/questions you might have. I'm hoping that hashing this out with the ol' flist will help to iron out all the kinks and start this comm running smoothly.

The Focus
I want to keep this comm primarily focused on fandom, making it a resource for fanfic writers and fandom readers. My inspiration for starting this comm is about 30% just because I'm a grammar nerd and 70% because I'm tired of reading badfic. There's so much fic out there that would be better if people just understood grammar/language.

Does that mean the comm will only be geared to fanfic?
No. It will be geared towards fandom, answering questions about grammar in a fandom context. I do also want this comm to be a resource to help writers gain the knowledge of the tools of the trade.

The Feedback
Help me out by leaving some feedback and your thoughts on my lingering questions.

1. Should the grammar questions coming in be screened in case anyone wants to be anonymous?
I'd like to credit people for their questions, but maybe we'd get some people who would prefer to be anon. *shrug* Regardless, I want to encourage them to ask the questions with their lj so we can reply back to them, directing them to the post with the answer.

2. What the heck should this comm be named? And what about the articles/features?

3. Are you still interested in being a contributor? Do you now have interest now that so much has been spelled out?

4. Does anyone know if moderated posting will automatically back date or will the post appear as a new post?
I couldn't find any info on this in the faq and I'm preforming an experiment with a closed comm I own now, but if someone already knows the answer to this question it would make my experiment go a lot faster. ;)

5. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or see potential problems.

6. Let me know if you have any questions because some of this will go up in the userinfo/intro post and I want to have everything spelled out as plainly as possible.
