(Mod Post) New Icons + a Q&A  
While recently creating a couple icons, I decided to create two new icons for this community.

First, is the actual community icon for permmembers. While the original community icon was decent enough, I decided it was time for something a little spiffier. And the result...

permmembers icon

...is this. Naturally I had to continue the goat theme. But instead of just a solid goat outline, we now have something that is a little more dynamic, and includes identifying marks -- both the community name, and the permanent account badge that is slated to be used on the new userinfo pages. If you feel it appropriate, feel free to use the community icon when promoting permmembers.

Additionally, to more easily distinguish moderator/maintainer posts I make, I will be using the following newly-created icon:

permmembers moderator icon

So, when you see the icon in use, it means I'm making an announcement/statement or addressing a concern regarding administration of this community.
(And hopefully I now have icons that reflect the coolness that is this community's membership.)
So, while we're at it...

Are there any questions, concerns, suggestions, or ideas regarding this community? I'm in the mood to take questions. If not, that's cool, but if you do have something I'd love to address what you might have to say.

Once again, thanks to everyone for their involvement in this community. May hope, love, and warmth be in your heart's possessing, and may the New Year
bring you and yours many blessings!

Nothing has yet happenned with a special "join" function. I plan to submit a suggestion to suggestions recommending implementation of this feature.

I have yet to actually make this post, though. I will, however, and then post to this community letting everyone know it has been suggested. Then if anyone has input, they can share such in the post in suggestions.

I'll try to get this knocked-out within the next week. (Assuming I don't forget again. heh) Thanks for the reminder.

You're welcome. Hmm, I think I should check out how this is implemented for paidmembers - maybe I can cook up a patch. I imagine it might make it easier to get this implemented if all the LJ folks will have to do is review and merge it... :)

There was a post not long ago in this community discussing the relevant sections of code. That may prove helpful. If you're actually capable of writing a patch -- because I'm not -- then that would be great. And hopefully help make this suggestion implementable.

I can't promise anything, but I can take a look. :) (I actually did write a very small patch once which was added to the site, but that was really just a handful of lines, so it doesn't really count. ^_~)

Mmmm, you probably mean this post? That looks like a good starting point, yes - thanks for the pointer. :)
