People have been suggesting new LiveJournal moods to me.
The protocol was designed to allow extensions to the mood list...

How can we decide which moods to add?
Maybe all of them?

Pros
  • The existing list is tends towards "negative" moods. While this representative of the LiveJournal population (heh), it might be nice to have better balance.
  • New moods get new icons.
    Someone proposed "orgasming", (which isn't a word by this spell checker, but is on Dictionary.com), which would be especially amusing considering the prevalence of cartoony themes...

    Cons
  • If the mood list is too long, it'll be useless to display when posting (too hard to find a word that matches your mood.
  • Finding the proper place on the mood tree might be difficult.
  • We don't want stupid moods on it. "proud" would be good, while "orgasming" is hardly a mood.

    I'm not looking for mood suggestions yet.
    I'm looking for suggestions on how to manage this.
    I'm thinking everyone can propose moods (in a later thread) then we can vote on them?

    Great Publicity for LJ

    I'd just like to give a little note to tell you that Elfwood (http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/), a community hosting over 10000 amateur Science Fiction and Fantasy art and writing galleries, recently made a few changes to the site to include contact information for a variety of messenger services... as well as a link for livejournal.


    This shows the link to the user's livejournal on the actual page of each gallery.


    This shows the field where users enter their livejournal username.

    Currently, the administrators of Elfwood have closed the site, but it will reopen soon (according to this

    Also worth noting is the community <lj user="elfwood"> which has been in existence for several months on livejournal. We had a little over 50 members a week ago. Since the announcement on the previously mentioned page went up a few hours ago, we have more than doubled and we continue to increase by the minute (i counted 15 new users in the last 20 minutes).

    This is amazing publicity for Livejournal, and I am really glad to see the two major communities blend like this. Both are sites with similar growth rates and similar size, and both cater towards to the same individuals.

    I have put detailed instructions on how to join livejournal on the community, hopefully you guys get a lot of new and interested members. =) I figured I'd break away from the busy <lj user="elfwood"> momentarily to spread the happy word. =) yay livejournal!
