grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">1.) I feel like some posts are too random to really start a discussion.. maybe it would be cool to have daily discussion topic ? Or people should post stuff that'll make others wants to reply and get involved... I agree, sounds like a good idea. 2.) maybe post regularly on other subs and clearly specify this would be a place to discuss "non-musical" topics around punk-rock subculture... I guess it will just take some time, but it should catch up... Posting or perhaps cross posting on other subs is a good idea." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">A 'featured subculture' thread. Where you can ask people from certain subcultures questions about their lifestyles? Great idea." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">maybe a introduction post for people who are new or unfamiliar with the riot grrrl movmement cant talk and learn so we can all interact more with each Good idea. I have two ideas surrounding this idea." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">1. More about the music and other media associated with punk subculture. Landmark punk movies, notable shows, albums. I feel like this sub has focused on mainly vague descriptions of various "punk subcultures" around the world which is interesting but I think it needs more. 2. To increase sub membership I think the only way to do that is advertise in the other punk subs once in a while and try to improve the content that is posted. 1.) I agree and have an idea for this. 2.) Good idea." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">More music, zines, etc. For membership, perhaps posting in related subreddits and possibly off site. I really want more music because I feel like I don't fully understand the scene that much/ Good ideas. Linking to this sub off Reddit is a great idea. This should be done." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">I agree with posting more discussion topics about what riotgrrrl stood for as opposed to articles strictly about the movement. I'm interested in seeing how other women relate to riotgrrrl, third wave feminism, punk, etc. and about how we could use those ideas for modern day issues. Great idea. I have an idea concerning this. >I think it would be beneficial to attempt to bring riotgrrrl more "into the now" than to have this be just a nostalgic sub. I agree, again, I have an idea about this as well. >Also, we need more user activity. Not just people posting, but commenting on things. Activity attracts activity, so if we want more users, we have to make it look like an active, engaging sub. This is true, but how can we encourage people to comment?" - Greta

">>In a reply to this post, I'd like all members of this sub to reply with: >>1.) One idea to improve this sub. This can be anything. More than one idea is fine. >Post more than the same few discussions weekly. Graphics and hell even a video or two on punk would be cool to me. I have an idea for this. >>2.) One idea to increase sub membership. This can be anything. More than one idea is fine. >Just posting on similar subs and getting sub exposure Good idea and cross posting is a way we can do this." - Greta

">1. More than just 90% discussions. Link sharing, infodump, pictures, the like. Articles, videos. Open ended debate inspiring questions, regardless of that there will be bickering over trivial things. I agree with this suggestion. This sub can be a mix of everything. >2. Less complex questions. I'm a speculator. I'm a shitty teenager goes to shitty local metalcore shows because the backwoods I'm in don't have punk. I feel I have no authority to speak on anything. I think that feeling has kept other people from replying in many threads. We can ask a variety of questions from complex to simple. Good idea." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">1.) we could post more original music Do you mean current riot grrrl bands? >2.) I second /u/TotallyNot_MikeDirnt that linking to /r/punk, /r/feminism and maybe a few other related subs is a good idea Read my comment reply to/u/TotallyNot_MikeDirnt I have done this." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">1.) More music! Maybe a weekly thread where we post songs or something. Also, I second /u/fl-0's idea of zine links. I'm reading The Riot Grrrl Collection right now and it's got me in a mood for zines. Songs can be posted anytime. /r/zines is a good sub for strictly zines. Read what I had for an idea concerning zines by reading my reply to /u/fl-0 >2.) Not really sure... Maybe ask some of the bigger subs like /r/punk to give us a shout out so people who don't know this sub exists can find their way over here. >I wish I had more ideas for you :\ I think in the weekly discussion thread on /r/punk, you can talk about anything. I mentioned a different sub in it a few months ago and didn't hear a complaint. I suggest someone (or myself) post a link to this sub up in their weekly discussion thread." - Greta

">Just looking over the past few submissions - I'm new here, so that's kind of all I have to go on - it's a lot of riot grrrl lifestyle items, if you will. Things focused on the music and the look rather than the intentions behind the movement. Personally, that's more of what I came here for. I was initially introduced to the concept of riot grrrls through a book "Girls to the Front". And wanted to know more about the movement as it stands now. I have an idea for the whole focus you just mentioned. I'm not going to share it right now but I think most people will like it. :) >I mean, there are direct links to Wikepedia articles rather than asking the question or making a statement or sharing a zine or article....things that would spark engagement and conversation. People are starting to post and comment a little more than they were within the past week. >It also seem that there isn't much discussion on threads. So perhaps mods engaging in the comments more to spark discussion? At least..." - Greta

">Maybe links to zines? I'm new here, I'd like to see some photos of either zines from the 90's or modern ones of today. maybe even posts of women throughout history that could fit into the riot grrrl mold. orr we could make spins on them (any artists out there trying to make a riot grrrl version of eartha kitt? that'd be great because i can't draw for shit). Sounds interesting. We would have to post a zine thread so we could collect a list of zines with links to the zines. >For a movement that was underground in the beginning, it's hard for it to grow any more prominent out of it's most iconic era. I keep hope though! I'm hoping for a revival of the movement." - Greta

">You can try editing the CSS to make the sub look better. A cool looking subreddit is a great way to attract new members. I recommend using the Naut Theme because, its easy to customize and it looks great I have edited the CSS but perhaps the colors need to be changed." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">I don't really have any ideas for the sub, but to increase membership it might be a good idea to post on /r/punk and /r/feminism asking people to join us here? Both of those subs have this sub linked in their sidebar. This sub has had an increase in members over the past few weeks. This is really good." - Greta
grrrlriot on For All Members Of This Sub - http://www.reddit.com/r...
">Ok, I'll bite. The sub needs more activity to thrive and draw in members. It needs to be seen, so you could ask other related subs to put this sub in their sidebar and you can list theirs as well. But you can't force-stoke the flames(threads and activity). That's what I've been doing. >Interesting questions with people to see them should be able to keep the momentum going. If there are only 20 or so members, you might look at other subs to see how they grew interest. In the end, subcultures are super interesting, but this is reddit, where you can visit a cultures page itself, or talk with historians or anthropologists in much larger subs. I agree. There are 190+ members here. Maybe a member of this sub could link this sub in a reply to a comment on the cultures/historians/anthropologists subs. >It may be that this is just a case of a sub that didn't fill a need. But i think it's worth trying. Maybe find some recent articles to post, and not in a dry way. Initiate a possible..." - Greta
