So this is the draft rules post. When they become finalized, I'll post a link in the user info. Also, what would you like to see listed as interests for the community? Do you (the members) prefer it be open membership, moderated membership, or closed membership (meaning by invitation only)? If closed membership, do you want it to be a group thing (voting), or just members can invite new members?

Draft Rules:

1) There will be one "group" book selection a month. It will be chosen democratically via a nomination post where books are nominated and blurbed in the comments, and then a voting post which will contain a poll listing the titles of the books for referring to the blurbs.

2) Any member who did not have their book chosen the previous month as the group selection may nominate a book.

3) All members may vote for the selection of the month.

4) Regardless of what you think of the book, save your criticisms for the book itself (content, subject, style, etc.) and not the person who nominated it. Any critiques which become critical of a member will be hidden. On the first time a member will be warned, on the second time (if it is necessary) the member will lose posting access to the community.

5) There is a seperate entry for book selection guidelines. While books falling outside of these guidelines may be quite interesting, at this time, these guidelines are how we are going to select books. Depening on the response to the first few selections, these guidelines may be up for negotiation.

6) All posts which may contain spoilers (especially about the group selection) should be put behind an LJ cut and marked with the tag "spoiler". Since we all read at different rates, this will help to keep from ruining the story we are in the middle of.

7) A comprehensive tag list will be created with group input. After the list is finalized, if you have a new tag you wish to add, please e-mail me, and we can discuss it. Tags which seem especially relevant or useful will be posted to the group for discussion before being added to the list.

My suggestion for tags is to start or make a new tag for each book.

Do you know if the tagging system has a limit on number of tags? Because that's a great idea, so I want to make sure that it doesn't hit some sort of weird limit.

I don't think there is a limit on the number of tags, at least I can't find one in the FAQ.
