Add Me Veg

<lj user="addmeveg">
http://community.livejournal.com/addmeveg/profile

An add me community specifically aimed at vegetarians and vegans.
I love my omnivore friends, but sometimes its nice to have fellow veg*ns on one's friends list, swap recipes, discuss dinner ideas, and share ideals about animal welfare and animal protection and for the love of all that is good, not have to explain yourself about your dietary choices (unless you wish to).

Promises to be a friendly, nonsnarky, drama free place, we're all of similar ideology.

Look forward to seeing you over there!

I recently started a community for people to share their stories of non-vegan experiences, rather than taking them to the usual places (i.e. VP) to avoid melt-downs of epic varieties. I'm sure we all know what I'm talking about.

Hello there! I just created a community for vegan people who are interested in diet tips. Those who are not vegans but want to be are welcome too. It's not only for people with eating disorders, it's for anyone who wants to eat healthy and lose weight or maintain it. If you are interested please join http://community.livejournal.com/skinnyvegans. I need members to get it started so we can help each others and encourage people to go vegan!

::edit:: i'm going to include some existing communities in this post.

veggiereview 2nd oldest.

veganreview newest. this community has moderated posting. (i think it might be defunct. no new posts since 2007.)

vegancooking also allows product reviews. we have tags to archive the reviews of the past. it's under -vegan reviews-[and then there are a few different categories to choose from.] the tags are viewable on the sidebar of the community. (this community also has moderated posting, but there are at least a half dozen moderators to approve posts.)

Is it Vegan? Wiki

Have you ever emailed a company and gotten an ingredients list to figure out if something was vegan or not? Did you ever find out if a particular company had shady or good labor practices?

A couple of friends and I started a wiki called Is it Vegan? We really haven't done anything at all with it because of our busy schedules as of late, although that should change in the new year. However, we want it to be a community based wiki where everyone has a say in what goes into the wiki. It's not just for vegan food either: it's for products, companies, specific ingredients, and even ideas.

So this is where I ask for the help of veganpeople: if you have ever gotten an ingredients list please sign up and join and add it. We aren't officially launching yet, because there is no data in there, but this is where you come in. It will be nice to have one central place to collect all the information we've been collecting on companies and products over the years.

In addition, we are looking for a graphics designer and an additional person to help with quality control and maintenance. If you are interested, please let me know!

Vegan knitters - revived

vegan_knitters is for anyone who knits with non-animal materials. It has existed for a while, but went quiet for a bit. Now i've got my arse into gear and given it a proper userinfo page, so feel like it is worth promoting a bit. It has a fairly general remit - asking for advice, posting FOs and yarn pr0n, probably anything you'd do in any other knitting community apart from the whole hurting sheep* thing.

*or goats, rabbits, silkworms, etc. And certainly no yarn with fox fur in, of all the stupid bloody pointless places to put bits of dead animal, grr...
