Just a reminder:

If you are seeking membership in this community, you MUST have something in your userinfo that indicates you are in some way a parent/guardian/spend a lot of time caring for children.

If you do not have these details, I may go skim your journal, but if that doesn't give me some sort of indication as to your motivations for the community, I'll reject your request.

It's not a dick move on my part, it's just that we would like to keep the community as relevant as possible.

Thanks! :)

Okay, I think I'm already a member...but I don't have anything in my profile saying that I'm parent (though I am, and a bad one at that). Then again, I'm not getting any reads from this journal either. I just assumed that it was...inactive.


Would you mind skimming my profile and adding me if you see fit? (If I'm not already added) I'll add the needed information.

Thanks!

Damn it! I clicked join and went to put up a new picture of my kids in my info. By the time I was done I was declined. Check again, maybe, please? I thought I had a sec!

I rejected you due to your being part of parent_drama.

(This rule was implemented before I was ever a mod, I'd like to accept you.)

All you need to do now is submit a blood sample, take a drug test, and perform an excellent pole dance.

THEN YOU'RE IN.

:D

I never really read p_d anyway, I'm A+ blood type, probably negative for everything except for opiates (c section last week) and I dip too much to be a good pole dancer. It hurts my legs!

I have requested to have the community on my friends list. I am pregnant and have lots on my mind. Thought reading here would be helpful.

Here because my wife pointed me at a protected entry, and then wondered why I am not currently a member of the community, as I'm the one who pointed it out to her. (After seeing an entry of yours in SYB, incidentally, and being smitten by you, reading your profile, and looking at this community). My wife (and babymomma) is "stephaniesmom"

Nothing in my userinfo to denote that I am the father of a nearly six year old, precocious, daughter-type person, but I am, and I am not likely to change my userinfo to state that.


And as I type this, I get an email alert telling me that my request to join has been disapproved :p Oh well.

Despite this, I still think your hubby is a very lucky fellow, and I appreciate that you are trying to keep the childpervs out of the community, so they cannot do harm to others, but I am just a pervy adult, who likes pretty, intelligent, adult women.

Namaste'

Yessum - soon's my poor excuse for an ISP (shared sattelite internet throttled down to ~56k speeds [or less] means I often cannot open my email box for long periods.)

And glad to brighten your day, you certainly brightened mine in the past ;)

I applied to join the com., promptly updated my lj profile, and then checked my e-mail to see I was declined... man, you're fast!
So what now? Can you look at my profile again, or should I just re-apply?

Hi.

My best friend is a new mom and I was hoping to get some advice about parenting books to give her as a gift. This community seems like the ideal place for me to ask my question, as the books I'm wondering about are focused on alternative parenting and this seems to be such an active and thoughtful community. It also seems likely that some people here have read the books I'm deciding between.

I understand this is a community for parents, but I was hoping I would be allowed to join, if only to engage in this one conversation. I think it's quite relevant and wouldn't take away from the overall integrity of this community.

Thanks!

I'd like to consider myself a half-parent.

That is, I see the kids I work with as much as their parents, and thus have become a staple in their life that.. apparently they cannot live without.

Pictures of them are in my profile.

It makes me sad to see them all grown up, at 4 and 5 now.. so I figured sharing the stresses of caring for kids, and having someplace to vent those frustrations might make it a bit more of a happy time, rather than a 'omfg you're growing up too fast SOBSOBSOB' time..

I requested membership. The only thing in my info about being a parent is my due date with my first child. It is hard to add stuff to my info as I use a g1 phone for internet only. But I am pregnant and will be a parent in the flesh in march. I also spend a lot of time helping to take care of my nieces and will be living with them within the next few months. So hopefully this will suffice as proof of my parenting. I am also in a pregnant community if that helps.

You rejected me, probably because I don't specifically mention that I'm a parent in my userinfo and because I belong to a couple of communities that you might not like. I am really only in those communities for some entertaining reading once in a while, and I could drop them if necessary since I am finding I don't have much time for them anyway. Just let me know. I have 1.5-year-old daughter. I don't share any other private information but am willing to discuss experiences in communities.

Hi, I'm going to try to add this journal to my friends list. I have 15 month old twin girls and am a member of p101 and parentsoftwins.

Thanks!

Hi, I was just declined from the community, and I'm guessing (from reading the public posts here) that it's because I'm in some snark communities. I don't get terribly involved in them, I just like reading them, and I haven't ever written a snark post about anyone. Any chance I can be reconsidered?

I've had a rash of people requesting membership in the past couple of days from the snark communities we endeavor to avoid - so I am sorry, but I can't really bend the rules.

I was just perusing the community looking for something that might be drawing snark attentions, and I found a couple of things that could possibly be ripe for trolling, and I really really don't want to deal with dramatics. I'm way too PMS'ey today for it.

Sorry.

Can I retry in the future? Although I don't honestly think I'm a bad parent, I just like to be able to find humour in parenting during the stressful times. :)

Sure. I would venture to say most of us aren't 'bad' parents. :)
