    Default MJJCommunity Announcements and Feedback

    This thread is for general announcements from MJJC Administration.

    It is also for feedback from the community, about the announcements and about anything that members would like to see happening, or not happening.

    Constructive, productive discussion and positive Q & A sessions are most welcome.

    This is an Administrator Announcement: Members need to give out THANKS and Positive Reps. to each other more often. It's free, guys. Just like a smile, it costs you nothing and makes someone else feel happy, visible and validated.

    I'm not saying we need to hand them out like candy, but in my opinion, we can definitely do MORE than we have been doing, in this area. Let's boost those user points and achievement levels, shall we?


    Yours in Positivity,
    Mikky Dee

    Congratulations to StaceyMJ and Daryll748 who have been promoted from their previous roles as Staff Members/Moderators to Administrators, so now we have become a team of three hard-working (and approachable) Co-Administrators.

    I'm sure Stacey and Daz will continue to do a wonderful job here at MJJC and I am looking forward to working alongside them to keep MJJC strong and vibrant, as the year unfolds.

    In case members haven't seen this slight tweak to our rules (in the Name Change Request thread) we have relaxed the rule on user name changes, just slightly. Name change requests will now be allowed more than once (as long as the privilege is not abused by members). There will be a six month waiting period after a name change, before another name change will be considered.

    Staff maintain the right to make name changes at their discretion and will discuss requests with members in the name change request thread, as usual.

    Going forward, a log will be kept in a staff thread, making note of when name changes have come into effect and what members' previous user names were.

    Keep on Michael-ing!

    To all of the wonderful members of MJJC,

    We would like to encourage everyone to PLEASE embed videos in threads, in future, rather than just posting links to youtube and other sites. Links take user traffic away from our site and onto other sites. We would prefer to keep our members here, watching and talking about videos IN THE THREADS, as much as possible.

    It's not compulsory, but rather a positive suggestion - in my experience, people often can't be bothered to click on a link and follow it; they are much more willing to watch a video if it is right in front of them. Threads also look more appealing with videos embedded, rather than a whole bunch of nondescript links.

    Thank you!

    Happy video viewing to all!

    Administration Announcement: There has been a slight rewording of MJJC Rules for the Michael Jackson News and Discussion Forum.

    Please read the revision carefully, as this is both an update and a reminder. We have recently moved a few threads from the news and discussion forum into other sub-forums on the site, which we feel are a better fit for the content of those threads.

    The rule: Michael Jackson News and Discussion Forum.

    Since the Michael Mania sub-forum has been merged with the Michael Jackson News sub-forum, there has been a title change and therefore this section of the site is for both news AND discussion. News articles, official announcements and current events constitute "news", whilst other more general topics about Michael Jackson the man, or his body of work, constitute "discussion".

    Please be aware that any new threads posted in the Michael Jackson News and Discussion forum are automatically posted to MJJC social media accounts, so think very carefully about whether what you are posting is appropriate and/or worthy for this section and for social media.

    We cannot stress this enough: please make sure to search and check to see if your topic has already been created. We do not wish to have MJJC social media flooded with the same news stories and discussion topics over and over again, or with topics that we might consider to be "fluff" topics, with very little substance, intellectual value, or professionalism attached to them.
    To summarise -

    News is official announcements, current events and news articles which are both reliable and sourced.

    Discussion needs to be about Michael the man, the humanitatian, or about his body of work.

    Default Messages to Michael From MJJC Members - June 25th 2018

    Hello Everyone,

    Project 1: One of our MJJC members is travelling to Forest Lawn this year, for the 25th June. She has very kindly offered to print up people's letters to Michael and take them with her, to leave there for him, on the day. If anyone would like to send a letter to Michael in this way, please send them to me via a PM. Letters that are sent to me will then be forwarded directly to our pilgrim, for her to print.

    Project 2: In addition, I am thinking very seriously about making a large card for Michael, from all of us at MJJC. After the card is made, I can mail it to our travelling member's post office mailing box for her to take with her to Forest Lawn, along with any individual, personal letters that have been printed. Anyone who would like a message placed on the card from MJJC is welcome to PM their message to me and I will make sure it is added to the card. Once the card is completed, I'll take photos of it and place them in this thread.

    I will discuss a suitable deadline for both of these projects with the travelling member and subsequently post the appropriate dates in this thread, as an MJJC announcement or update.

    In the meantime, please give it some serious thought. Letters and messages can be written any time from now on and sent to me....my inbox is waiting.

    Warmest Regards to All,
    Mikky Dee of MJJC

    Update:

    The deadline for Project 1 - personal letters to Michael - is Sunday 10 June at 6p.m. GMT/ London time.
    Please PM your letters to me before then, so that I can pass them on, for printing.

    The deadline for Project 2 - the MJJC card with messages from members in it - if I make the card, I will need to mail it by 30th May. Anyone who would like a message placed in the card should PM it to me before then.

    Of course it's perfectly okay if members want to participate in both projects. The higher the level of participation that we have, the better we will all feel, for having done something lovely for Michael.

    This is a reminder to all MJJ Community members about these two wonderful projects. We have already received some beautiful letters, poetry and may even be receiving drawings, too, in the near future, for our pilgrim to take to Michael at Forest Lawn.

    Please start thinking about your messages and sending them soon, as our deadlines are fast approaching. I am on twitter, as well. You can pass this idea on to your MJ friends on twitter and they can DM me their contributions @glitterglove101 if they would like to.

    Final update:

    Project #2 - I've begun making the MJJC card for Michael. I will need to mail it to our Forest Lawn pilgrim in just two days, so if there is anyone who would like me to write a message into the card on their behalf, then please send it to me via PM, a.s.a.p.!! When it's finished, I'll take a photo of the card and post it in this thread, for everyone to see.

    Project #1 - If you'd like to write something longer than a card message, there is still time to send your letters for Michael to me, so that I can pass them on to our lovely travelling member. Please make sure that your letters reach me (via PM) before the 17th June, so that I can forward them straight away, for printing and packing.

    This is a wonderful offer, so I urge people to avail themselves of it. It's a great chance for people all over the world who can't be at Forest Lawn on 25th June, to do something beautiful and heartfelt for MJ. I have written and left letters at Forest Lawn for him, myself, on a couple of occasions and I find it to be very cathartic.

    Thank you, all.

    How beautiful!

    I participated in the print-out-letter a couple of years ago, and I think I´m doing it again for this year.

    Mikky, wonderful idea - the MJJC card!

    Thank you for participating! Don't forget to PM your letter to me by the due date, so I can pass it on to our traveller.

    Also if you'd like a message on the MJJC card, PM it to me as soon as you're ready, as I'm going to start making the card next week.
