    Updating new Read Me section (week of June 13)

    Re: http://www.reikilearninglounge.com/f51-read-me-s-important-required-readings

    Hello everyone.

    During the last few years the Reiki Learning Lounge has grown to be the most successful Reiki forum freely available on the internet. When this healing project began, we were not certain where the best place to position the current terms of service was, or where to place signature guidelines. At the time, we chose to leave that information set as announcements or sticky's that would appear in the main area where people were most likely to visit.

    That worked well during the first year and a half or so, but as Reiki members began to participate more frequently, the archive of really good Reiki discussions grew, and the new behavioral trait related to the internet known as "banner blindness" set in. "Banner blindness" simply means that a person visits a website and has become so conditioned to seeing advertisements that they no longer see them, and simply looks for the information they want to find. While the banner advertisements are at a minimum on the Reiki Learning Lounge, that concept applies to stickys and announcements that we created to hold our signature guidelines and terms of service.

    During the last several months the administration team has repeated actions to help make members aware of our terms and other participation guidelines. Sometimes a post has been unexpectedly moved to a different category, and our concern is that action has caused concern of the member -- and that's given me reason to feel that it's time to improve the positioning of such information.

    I've created a new category at the top of the forum titled "Administration and Read-Me's". During this week of June 13th, 2012, I'm going to be updating, revising, and re-positioning the informational posts within it so that the information is easier to find.

    The information the new section will contain will include the following:
    • How To Link To Us Guidelines and Tutorial(s)
    • How To Add A Link To Your Signature Guidelines and Tutorial(s)
    • When Your Post Has Been Moved
    • The current Terms of Service and
    • Any other applicable information


    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, you are welcome to privately message any of the administrators.

    You are the reason the Reiki Learning Lounge has grown to be the most successful Reiki forum. Thank you for being here, and in a bow of gratitude, gassho.

    cheers Thanks Buck. I'm very much in agreement
    that every so often changes need to happen to re-
    focus the RLL participants to navigate better that
    includes myself Laughing

    I grumble when Trader Joe's makes subtle changes but
    of course I know it directs me to newer products as
    it disrupts my zombie routine Shocked study lol!
