Hello everyone!!!

My name is Marissa and I am one of the 2 moderators for this site. It's been forever and a day since I've been able to come on here (real life got in the way, sadly!!)

So a little confession, I made this page a long time ago. Back when it originally started, there were only a few hundred members. We were all super close knit and everyone got along.

Sadly, shortly after (about a year or so) the page exploded with a ton of new members. It quickly became too much to handle and there were a lot of members that came on and had ulterior motives when joining. I was just a teenager back then - and instead of handling it, I just let the page go and stopped moderating it.

About 6 months ago, I came back to the page and I was saddened by the amount of shameful posting, bullying, and nonsense. This page was made for people around the US and the world to come together and talk/learn ASL in a judgment free zone. (and for free!!)

Long story short, the online world has changed drastically since I first started this page, and a lot more things are said that people would never say in person. I will be moderating this site more closely now and removing/banning anyone that is disgraceful in any form or fashion. Depending on the nature, there will be no warning. In the long run, you know what is right and what is wrong. Let's be smart and have a welcoming community for anyone!!

Now to move beyond the post above, this is written in hopes that we can make this page even better than it is. I want to get your input!

What kinds of things do you want to see on this page? Things we did a long time ago were:

-Signing socials - we created 1 video chatroom for people who were comfortable signing with no voices and 1 room for other people that needed voice on while signing. People got together for 1-3 hrs once a week and just chatted about whatever using sign.

-Weekly sign video challenges where I'd post a topic and you were to make up to a 5 minute video of yourself in the "videos" section of the page talking about that topic. There were no rules as far as how much was signed versus voiced, but we encouraged signing as much as possible. This gave people an outlet to comment on your signed video about signs that needed an adjustment/or new signs to learn.

-Tutor days. Experienced signers would offer up their time to get together with new people to get their feet wet with signing. There were no rules as far as structure and it was up to the experienced signer to chat and handle the tutor day whichever they saw fit.

Anyone have other great ideas to incorporate into this page? I'm up to any ideas! Comment below.

Sincerely,

Marissa - Moderator
