How we got a new community!

The thrilling saga!

I've gotten a few questions about new communities, and since I've been around for a while I thought I'd share what I know. Vingle is an awesome place and I find out about new communities all the time, but sometimes the one you're most excited about isn't there (yet). Sometimes when you request a new community (you can ask Vingle to do that ---> HERE) it gets made right away.
But other times the Vingle gods need a little encouragement. Aka they want you to prove that there's enough interest for the community to be made. Which is exactly what happened when we requested a Supernatural community.

That was disappointing. But it was not the end!

See, Supernatural fans just took that as a challenge.

We know we're awesome. But frankly, we'd been lurking. We hadn't been showing our SPN pride. There were barely any cards about Supernatural. And while we were all fans, we barely knew each other! That's not really a community. So what did we do?

1. Get goofy

We made a message group to help come up with a game plan (and get to know everyone) so that we could show Vingle how much love we have for the show and each other!

2. Go wild

A big part of our game plan was making cards, but we didn't think that was going to be enough. We also COMMENTED. A lot. Every time someone made a card about Supernatural we basically threw a party in the comments section.

3. Team work makes the dream work!

@LAVONYORK (the lovely mod for SPN) made a collection to keep all the SPN cards in one place. We shared our cards in the message group and commented on them. We kept finding new people that wanted to join in on the fun so we made sure to include them in the tags.

And then...

IT HAPPENED!!!!!

We got our Supernatural community!!!

Vingle saw what we were up to and recognized how important a community space was. And I think because we all bonded over how much we wanted it, so the community is probably stronger because we had to wait. At least that's what I tell myself. Seriously waiting was hard!

We did it! So can you!

If you have any questions, please ask us! I'm the Marvel mod, and @LAVONYORK is the SPN mod. This community is really her baby. She put so much into making this happen and I fully believe that without her we wouldn't have this awesome space. I'd love to see other people making Vingle their place! So if I can help in any way hit me up ^_^
