OK! now many of you want to restart houze...from the beginning... NO pre existing shite as if they were just ripped from part of the series etc...since everything here feels kind of tense.

The new comm would be a reset of houze, take a deep breath and let everything go.

This current community would still be open for those who want to continue,or if anyone just wants to crack with the versions of characters from this comm,since they've been changed by houze-specific events ,and since there are a few fun things like the wedding to go. Maybe with another comm people would take what happens here less seriously...but nothing that happened or happens here would effect the new comm. Now the hard part...a poll!

Since LJ is supposedly cracking down on things, someone suggested having the new comm at insanejournal

Where should we restart?

Keep it on LJ!
Insanejournal all the way!
Edit: Note this will be houze restarted, just on a different comm since this one has so much too it and too many memories to really start fresh.

I don't want another comm. I want NH. Restarted. Thus why it was an awesome idea.

I voted keep it on LJ, even though we have the risk of it being deleted, most of us are used to LJ so in the restart comm it would be a bit easier.

I dunno. One of the comms DeiDei's in had to move to GJ because of it being NSFW...

Though if we keep all entries f-locked it may work.

I know it's not my place to vote since I'm not a member anymore (and won't join the new comm), but I think keeping it on LJ would be a good idea, as long as you f-lock any questionable content. :)
manly_beast at 2007-08-31 02:00 (UTC) (Link)
I figure it will but I wanted to toss the other two out,all it would take would be one person forgetting to lock it...and at that we'd HAVE to post any crack journalsto be friended like a week before hand because everyones journals would be locked.

Stay on LJ pls. T.T;;
fanboy_deidei at 2007-08-31 16:12 (UTC) (Link)
Oh, and... so there will be another comm, which will be something like NH2...?
manly_beast at 2007-08-31 22:38 (UTC) (Link)
It'll just be houze restarted from the beginning. so I guess it would be Houze 2.0 XD
manly_beast at 2007-08-31 22:39 (UTC) (Link)
XD that seems to be what most want.

D: I don't know the difference in the insanjournal and normal LJ stuff and what not!

So, either one is fine I guess :\, but I already know how to work LJ...sorta XD

I vote LJ, but I'm cool with anything, really.

Whatever everyone decides is fine with me.

UGH SORRY it logged me out. damned hell

but just restart the comm, don't make a second comm, and a suggestion: make it so that existing members of the comm can reply and make posts to the communities to avoid drama (SHE KNOWS WHO SHE IS).
manly_beast at 2007-09-02 05:03 (UTC) (Link)
The problem is alot of people I've talked to want to continue this one and it's unfair to them to basically erase everything when it's easier to just restart elsewhere.

The issue is, some people don't want to restart,and some just don't want to lose everything. So we're doing the thing that's fair to everyone and finding a balance.

a restart is a restart regardless of the URL...and with that situation some people might be tempted to suddenly "remember' things or feelings.

The only thing that would change for the people who want to completely restart is the URL of the main comm.

Please don't kill me but.. I like the idea of restarting with a new comm. Completely new. Meaning different URL and for those of us who want them, new character journals.

I know some people here have had drama in the past which they would rather forget about, but in the 18 months we've been together, there are soooo many memories that I just don't want to see erased from the main community if it were to be 'recycled' for this project. For instance, I don't want to lose those awesome convos we had with ex-members like Yondie and all those cracktastic events that are EPIC and unique to Houze. ILU guys and I don't want to lose the stuff we did. This comm is also where a number of us lost our RP virginities after all.

A second point is this: I want to restart, but I also don't want to kill Houze as we know it. There are still some things going on here with our current 'plot' such as the ShikaSaku wedding and what not. After these loose ends are tied up, Houze as we currently know it will inevitably die off on its own, especially if a second "Houze restarted" community is in session. But at least this way, orginal!Houze will have a gradual and natural death rather than being suddenly vaporized off the face of the planet. LOL. :|

Once it's completely dead, Orignal!Houze can then be made into a closed but archive-able community. We would not be able to accept any new characters here once the restarted community has been created (to avoid confusion amongst the n00bz.)

I think most of us here have agreed that it's time to restart. But this does not mean we've all agreed to end the original NH, much less delete the old stuff. I guess maybe there should be a poll to help us determine how many people want to end the current Houze in favor of a new one at the same URL and how many want a separate community.

Personally, I just think a separate community would be easier. There would be no more stigmas attached and the setting could even be changed a bit like Shika-mun mentioned earlier. A new and different community would really aid in the idea of new and different beginnings.

I will also suggest a "trial run", meaning create the new community while keeping this one just to see whether we like it or not before recruiting new members to join us.

One thing I just wanna say is that the people that wanted to restart here weren't just going to delete everything.

They were going to put them on private in their journals. To make everything look new but the journals + comments would still be there.

That's alright with me. What someone wants to do with their LJ is up to them. But what about the main community? Would the old entries stay there or would they also be screened? If they're screened, then no one would be able to view them.

I guess whatever the majority of members want is fine with me. I just want to see some activity here.
