Community description:All things spinning--the whole process, beginning to end.
[community profile] spinning is a place for all things spinning--from fiber prep (or growth, if using vegetable fibers or keeping fiber critters!) to finishing your yarn. Questions about spinning for a certain kind of project are 100% welcome here, but in-depth discussions about knitting or weaving might be better posted in another comm (or not, I'm not gonna freak out about this unless I have a real good reason :)).

I don't want to have a lot of moderation here, but sometimes it comes in handy to lay down some ground rules:

1. Be respectful. This includes everything from being civil to somebody who disagrees with you, to refraining from sexist, racist, and homophobic language (or any other hate speech).
2. Along the lines of #1, please feel free to share your passionate point of view here--but spinners of all stripe are welcomed, so be cognizant of each others' differences and interests, y'all. Everyone, from the technical spinner to the brand-new spinner, is welcome here and should feel heard.
3. Pics bigger than 500 px in any direction need to be behind a cut, please.
4. If you must advertise another community here, it should be strictly fiber-related. Only one advertisement per community is permitted. Let's keep the focus of this comm on discussion!
5. Commercial advertisements are welcome on Fridays only; please only place one advertisement a week. If Etsy widgets are larger than 500px in any direction, please have mercy on folks with slow computers and pop them behind a cut. :)

Suggestions for other guidelines? Disagreements? Issues? Please contact [personal profile] laughingrat, your friendly group mod.
