O poor site.

What happened to our baby?

We need to reconsider how to make this baby grow, because our four current feeders haven't made the child tall . . .

Here's a few suggestions that might make it easier for people find this community:

-Contact the maintainers of other pen & stationery communities and ask about becomming affiliates. Suggestions: fountainpens, [Bad username: writinguntensils], stationery_perv, & stationerylove.

-You could add some more interests to the interest list. Suggestions: calligraphy, handwriting, writing, compulsive writing, ink, ink stains, nibs, specialty nibs, stub nibs, italic nibs, oblique nibs, flexible nibs, three tined nibs, music nibs. You could also add the brands of popular fountain pens to the interest list, such as parker, namiki, waterman, caran d'ache, visconti, montblanc, sailor, omas, shaeffer, pelikan, conklin, waterford, yard-o-led, monteverde, stipula, dunhill, cross, faber-castell, krone, conway stewert, etc...

-You could promote this community in some of the promo comms. Sorry, I can't think of any off the top of my head, but I know there's quite a few, and they're probably not to hard to find.

-You could also suggest this community for the lj spotlight here.

I hope that helps.

Re: suggestions
Sorry, that should be writingutensils.

Also, you might want to try and find ways to differentiate this community from fountainpens since they're both dedicated to the same subject. Perhaps you could come up with some features that they don't have?

Tags might also be a good idea for when the community becomes more active (hopefully). It would make it easier for members to search for the information they wanted.

That's all I can think of for now.
