Meant to post this earlier this month:

The next exchange will be posted following the season finale. I'm sure we'll all need a buddy then.

Well hello everyone! It's certainly been awhile since you've seen anything from this community, and that's because of several reasons I don't want to bore you with. Anyhow, this community will be restarting very soon with new monthly exchanges.

If you have any suggestions for exchange themes or for the community as a whole, leave me a comment on this post (public) or on the suggestion post (screened). 

Stay tuned.

 Just a friendly reminder that there is no new exchange this week, as members said they prefer to have an exchange every two weeks. So you still have time to finish your gift for Exchange #6! Also, don't forget to sign up for Exchange #7: Christmas in July. Nag Tell your friends! Check back on July 30 for a list of buddies. The threads will be back then too. Any questions or suggestions can be left here.

Have a great week!

Hi everyone!

Although we seem to be getting new people every week, it seems that there are less and less people signing up to participate in exchanges. In an effort to see what you, the members, think, I'm posting this poll. If you could please vote and/or add in your two cents, I'd appreciate it so much! Thank you.

Poll #1223368 spn_buddy evaluation
This poll is closed.

What would make spn_buddy better?

More than one theme to choose from each week
Extending buddy exchanges to every two weeks
Changing the weekly meme to something besides just questions
Bringing in co-mods and rotating who's in charge of exchanges/weekly memes
Other (specify in "Anything else?" field)

Do you like using buddy posts to interact with your buddies?

No, bring back the thread from the first exchange
No, let's try something else (specify in "Anything else?" field)

Do you pimp for spn_buddy?

Yes, pretty often
Yes, when I get the chance
Yes, rarely
I would pimp more if ___ (specify in "Anything else?" field)

Anything else? (Use this space to elaborate on any questions you answered with "Other", or let me know of something unrelated!)

As one of the poll questions deals with pimping, I wanted to be sure to include something about the communities I've been posting to.

spnnewsletter (we've been listed a couple times)

I've been trying to focus on communities that are pretty active, so the word gets out better. Are there any other places you post? Any places you can suggest for me? Do you think we need more banners or another method of pimping?

Hey everyone!

Earlier, one of the members here made a post along the lines of what would go in a friending meme, and while I originally intended for you guys to post things like that whenever, I started thinking things might get a little disorganized if that happens! I don't want friending memes/buddy exchanges to get confused. That's why what I'm going to do (and hopefully it's okay with all of you) is make this post the official spn_buddy friending meme.

If you aren't familiar with friending memes, basically all you need to do is respond to the questions in the survey below (which you can copy and paste into a new comment). Then, make friends! Comment people whose answers you find interesting, who you have something in common with, who seem fun to add, etc., and get to know them.

There was a really fun meme over at spn_support, but I don't know how many people are still participating. It's definitely worth a shot to try, though, because all those girls are awesome, and I know quite a few of you are members both here and there. There are also several multi-fandom memes all over LJ that you can randomly search for if you'd like. If any of you want to bring any particular memes to my attention, just comment the suggestion post and let me know and I'll add it here!

Friend away!

Hey everyone, I just wanted to remind you to spread the word about spn_buddy if you haven't already done so. We definitely need more participants if I'm going to pair buddies up tomorrow.

Also, I'm toying with the idea of not using threads to communicate, but letting the members make locked "SPN Buddy" posts to interact with each other in their own journals instead. I think there's been some confusion on whether to use the survey post or the buddy pairing post to talk/exchange gifts. Would you be more comfortable keeping things between your buddy and you as opposed to open to the whole community? Please let me know! I'd like to go with what works best for you guys.

So far, I think we've been pretty successful. I know my buddy and I hit it off pretty well, and it seems like everyone else who's been active has been having fun getting to know new people, too. I'd really like for this community to continue, but we're going to need some more members for that to happen, or else it'll always be the same people rotating buddies. Right now, it's not a big deal, because a lot of us don't know each other, but in the future, we'll definitely need more people.

Thanks for making spn_buddy as awesome as it is!
