poll request

can anyone with a paid account make a poll about stiffness and leaks? been coming up a lot recently and "many of us don't leak with soft cups" is too vague. sometimes leaking doesn't depend on stiffness either...

Re: poll request

I *think* you should be able to make a poll anyway, since the community has a paid account... if not, you can switch your account to Plus (which is free but puts ads on your journal) and then back to Free once you've posted the poll.

I *think*.

Screened

It seems that a new poster, called amongbeings, posted a message using a setting that screens comments.

I have been reading these forums for about a month trying to decide which cup would be best for me. I finally made a decision and wanted to share my experience in buying, say thanks to everyone who posted, etc, so I signed up for a livejournal account so I would be able to post. However, my request to join this forum was declined. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I should do next? What can I do to share my thanks/photos/experience?

Hi kmaragold! This is actually the moderator community; other than this open post for members to report problems, it's entirely administrative and limited to the menstrual_cups moderators. I know that can be a bit confusing, but it's a pretty common arrangement for larger lj communities :) You are of course welcome to join the main community, which is menstrual_cups - that's open membership, so all you have to do is go to the community, and there's a drop-down menu at the top of the page (where it says "You are viewing menstrual_cups"> that will let you join and watch the community. I'm so glad the site has been helpful for you!

For some reason one of my posts was deleted and I don't know why, I wasn't breaking any rules. Tell me if this isn't the right place to ask about this.

Hi
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<lj-user =>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

Hi <lj-user = "htebazile10">. You've made four posts since yesterday morning. As I told you in the comment before I deleted your post, our community rules (which you can read <a href = "http://menstrual_cups.livejournal.com/profile">here</a>) ask that you do not post more than twice a week. This is to make sure our users don't get overwhelmed with posts, and to make sure we make good use of our archives. There are FAQs listed on the side of the community page, as well as tags that you can use to answer your questions. You're welcome to use these resources and to participate in the rest of the community, but please do not make another post before May 1. Thanks!

Can I make a request to have one info page for ALL the information, with step by step instructions of how to determine which cup is best for you? It's very overwhelming to look at these charts when I really have no idea what I'm looking for. :|

It would be great if we could have that, but it's just not practical - people have such a range of circumstances that there's no way we could reliably narrow it down to one choice or set of choices, and cup options come and go all the time. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Hello mods! I've got a few suggestions. Apologies in advance for dumping them all at once.

I'm wondering whether it might be an idea to create a sticky post with links to the most important pages/posts (including the all-important size charts, soft vs. firm, tips on folding/insertion, cleaning the different types of cup) ? Plus maybe some simple instructions for beginners along the lines of "Interested in using a menstrual cup, but not sure where to start? Here's what you need to do to work out which cup you need. One, measure the distance to your cervix, ideally during your period when it tends to move lower..."

Also, do you know if/when the comm's FAQ is going to become available again? (I assume it did exist once) When I first arrived on the comm I got a bit discouraged trying to track down the FAQ via the links provided. It goes like this, starting from the left navbar: FAQ [in progress] > short FAQ post that points the reader to... > a FAQ wiki post that tells how to edit the wiki, and links to... > an Under Construction page on menstrualcups.org :-(

OOTH, if the FAQ is never coming back (baq) then maybe it would be better to remove the link trail altogether, maybe replacing the FAQ [in progress] link with one that points to the faq tag (or similar). Or the aforementioned sticky post with links to some good individual posts, maybe.

Also... many of the newer (?) cups aren't mentioned on the profile page. (Or in the comm name, although I'm assuming you've hit the character limit there ;-) It struck me as a bit odd when I first visited the comm (yes, I'm one of the oddballs who carefully reads the profile page first), so in fact I assumed that the inclusion of some cups and exclusion of others meant that the former were more reputable. For example, there's no mention of Fleurcup, Meluna or Yuuki, so I wondered at first if Meluna etc. were maybe regarded as a bit dodgy! Now I know better, but you know, newbies do draw such conclusions sometimes.

So, you might wish to add the names of the newer cups (manufacturer names) under Profile | Basic info | Description and also under Profile | Connect | Interests. The full list (judging from the tags) is: alicia [now called hygina apparently?], cuplee, divacup, femmecup, fleurcup, green donna, instead, iriscup, juju, keeper, lady cup, lunette, meluna, miacup, mialuna, misscup, mooncup (uk), mpowercup, natural mamma, naturcup, shecup, si-bell, yuuki.

And lastly (phew) under Profile | Menstrual Cups, you might want to include a mention that Meluna is made of TPE, since currently the list only describes 2 materials: latex (the Keeper) and silicone.

Thanks!

There are some entries that have been tagged with 'faq' and don't seem like FAQ material. Possibly because the poster didn't realise that that's what the tag means. Just a heads up.

Whoa, this* is a moderated community now?
I'm sure there are good reasons, and I hope they're not the kind that sucks to have to deal with.

That said, maybe an announcement might be nice.

*) The original menstrual cup talk comm, not this one.

No, definitely not! Livejournal has done some weirdness with its posting settings, so now things with some links (though not all of them, based on rules seemingly only known to lj, or maybe not even them) get auto-moderated. I don't like it, but haven't had time to try and fix it. I'm guessing you had a post get caught, yes? I'll go fix it :)
