Mod Comm for Vegetarian and Nice_Vegetarian
Recent Entries 
Welcome to vegetarianmods! This community is used for the maintainers/moderators of both vegetarian and nice_vegetarian.

BY BECOMING A MEMBER OF EITHER vegetarian OR nice_vegetarian, YOU ARE STATING THAT YOU HAVE READ AND AGREED TO ADHERE TO THE COMMUNITY'S RULES. Before you become an active member within either community, please make sure you have read and understand all of the community's policies.

If you happen to observe anything that appears to be a violation of the rules, please get in touch with a moderator right away. They may be reached here; simply make a post with your inquiry or concern. Alternately, you may also PM the mods.

Warnings and bannings that occur in each community will count for both communities, i.e. a warning in vegetarian will count as one both in that community and in nice_vegetarian. Once three warnings are given, regardless of the community in which they are given, it will result in a ban from both communities.

If you are a member of vegetarian or nice_vegetarian and you are posting here with a question, we would prefer it if your post was unlocked. This is not a requirement, simply a preference. If your post is referenced in the future and it is locked, it will be requested that you unlock your post so other members may view it.

Your friendly neighborhood mods are:
mahasin, co-maintainer of nice_vegetarian
chimpee, co-maintainer of nice_vegetarian
halcyonlove, maintainer of vegetarian
megamuphen, moderator of vegetarian

Hi there, mahasin and chimpeee!

Can someone please take a look at nice_vegetarian and check why my comments are being screened? I imagine it may be because I'm writing from an OpenID rather than an "actual" LJ account.

Thanks! :)

Hey guys!
Glad to have some new mods! I recall a very long time ago that all members of the vegetarian were blocked as there was some sort of vegan takeover (way over dramatic if I recall). At that time I was blocked from the community and so I joined nice_vegetarian. I have been active in LJ again recently and really loved participating in the original community (the nice veggie com is in fact nice, but not as active). Any way I could gain re-entry? I had done nothing to warrant being banned at the time, and such was the story for many of those who were. Sorry this is so late in asking, but I figure now was my chance! Thanks!
Hey, everyone!

I'm so glad to see the camaraderie, community, delicious tips and recipes, and general friendliness going on in both vegetarian and nice_vegetarian... which is why it makes me sad to say that I'm stepping down from my moderator/ownership positions in both communities. Life offline has just been picking up faster than I can handle, so I need people to take over and do the grunt work. :)

Here's how it's gonna work:

Below is an application for ownership/moderatorship. In the subject line of your comment, please indicate which community and what position you'd like (i.e. "nice_vegetarian, moderator"). (If you have no preference, "Any, Any".) In the body of your comment, paste and fill out the application.

You may vote on anyone's application once it has been posted. To do so, simply reply to that person's comment and let us know why you recommend them for the community/position. Protip: While helpful for determining an owner/moderator, it will not be the main factor in the final decision.

Warning issued to dirtyrich09 for a personal attack on a fellow member ("but you are seriously retarded"). Also, a butt-ton of freezing because people just need to step back and breathe. Everyone.

Warning also issued to hypnotica_chik for an attack on a certain audience ("They're all self-righteous, arrogant fuckwads").

No warning issued, but sexist or otherwise derogatory comments such as those by happytree ("Calm your ovaries"), even if not directed as a personal attack, will not be tolerated. Another transgression and I'll implement a warning.

As noted and as I'll reiterate here, we appreciate healthy debate and even some hyperbole in vegetarian discussions, but we do not tolerate name-calling and other personal attacks. Especially when inflammatory language is used.

I am continuing to go through and watch this post; if you have any questions or concerns, you may bring them up in the comments.
100% vegetarian
(Community promotion Request)
If denied, or even if not denied it is possible addmeveg be added to the list of communities on vegetarian profile page? Of course would reciprocate.


Add Me Community for Vegetarians, Vegans and Interested Omnivores!

I love my omnivore friends, but sometimes its nice to chat with a fellow veg*n, swap recipes, discuss dinner ideas, and share ideals about animal welfare and animal protection and for the love of all that is good, not have to explain yourself about your dietary choices (unless you wish to). Interested omnivores are allowed in too!
Perhaps your girlfriend/boyfriend/friend/family member is vegetarian/vegan and you'd like another veggie perspective despite being omnivore yourself? You are most welcome here!

22nd-Nov-2010 02:08 pm - EdenSoy soy milk giveaway?
I'll be posting a giveaway soon on my blog, The Coexist Cafe, and wanted to know if it was kosher to post in both vegetarian and nice_vegetarian. I mean, duh, I'm mod/maintainer for both, but I really wanted to get some outside opinions before just jumping into it.

The contest involves people subscribing to my blog via the blog itself, Twitter, and Facebook, and requires each entrant to state their favorite brand of EdenSoy (or any other soy) milk. The prize is a four-pack of full-size EdenSoy milk products: Regular, combo rice and soy, chocolate, and vanilla. I might also throw in a few coupons for Quorn products, though I'm considering a separate giveaway for that.

So... y'all cool with that? :)

Just wondering why a post about killing animals was approved for a vegetarian community....I guess the rules don't state anything specifically about not posting things regarding killing animals - only to meat - but I just assumed that since this is vegetarian I won't have to see posts about animals being killed.
Banning issued to sassy_lassy78 (IP address for being an obvious troll in vegetarian. Proof of trolling offered in these two threads.

Any questions, concerns, or requests from this user for a lift on these bans, please address them here. Thanks!
3rd-Oct-2010 02:01 pm - Warning to devilzfood

Warning issued to candysandwich for a personal attack against another user. nice_vegetarian is a community meant to build positive relationships with those of all different dietary backgrounds and ways in which others come to veg*nism. Objecting PETA is not at all elitist, and is simply another view in the .

As stated in the warning, personal attacks are not tolerated in the community. It is a place for friendly discourse and tolerance toward other points of view, including an objection against PETA or other organizations.. Crossing into territory that may be deemed combative, debating, or a personal attack will result in a warning and, after three strikes, a ban from the community.

Thank you!
