Welcome to lj_policy!

We're glad you're here. This community will be used to gather your opinions about social and community policy.

We understand that there is a lot to absorb and process right now with the creation of LiveJournal, Inc. Since this is a transition for all of us, we want to initiate a dialogue with you, the users. We feel it is very important to hear your concerns before we release any changes to current policies, and we want to start this process right away.

As a starting point, we don't want to just guess what's important to you; we want to hear about it directly from you. Please take a moment to answer the questions below:

1) What is your greatest concern about LiveJournal's current policies?

2) Regarding your primary concern, are you aware of a site that handles that issue in a way that you like?

This is just a starting point to get your initial ideas. We know you have a lot more where these come from, and in the coming days and weeks we will make sure you have a chance to voice your opinions. We look forward to your comments.

Agreed. I think the first point is particularly relevant to those who use LiveJournal for creative works. Not all fictional content is going to be non-offensive. Often that's even the point. I mean, how many people here write/draw/otherwise express themselves as a reflection of life? And life is sure as hell going to hurt the delicate sensibilities of most. I much preferred when LJ only went against stuff that was actually illegal, (ie, was actually harming someone in real life, as opposed to fictionally) rather than playing the part of morality police. The idea of basing things off what an unnamed group of people may or may not like is troubling.

I sure as hell don't. For a few things, I'm thinner, sexier and dress *way* better in my Mary Sue's! :D And I always get the guy (which I'm not mature enough to handle in IRL, yet :().
