Spooknic Update  
No spooknic is not dead, and this community is not dead.

As many of you who know me personally are aware I have been a very busy girl, and the main reason for spooknic not getting rolling quite yet is the fact that I am moving up to Sacramento towards the end of this year. Spooknic will be restarted there.

I am going to make the first and last comment on this community in regards to the norcalspooknic community as to avert confusion. I started spooknic, I created the name spooknic, and put a hell of a lot of work into spooknic just to let the community go. Several years ago I spent a lot of time and my own money creating the old spooknic site, getting flyers all over town, and traveling two hours away by bus trying to get this thing started. The original spooknic came soley from my head.

The maintainer of the norcalspooknic community and I were once friends who parted ways not too long ago, I can understand why she would want to create her own community but I am not really sure why she couldn't be bothered to give that community an orignal name. These are two completely seperate groups, and this community can only wish that community the best of luck with what they are doing. As members, if you are attending events for norcalspooknic we are not going to be upset about it. I don't feel like anyone should feel like they can't attend both events if they want to. As far as this community is concerned we are not going to maintain some kind of level of dessention over personal issues that don't affect you guys.

In regards to the original idea of spooknic, Spoonic was created for a way to meet other spooky minded people over a nice quiet setting. We will be having our picnics in cemetaries, historical places, and maybe even parks. Dress to the hilt, pack a lunch and a spooky picnic blanket for games, photo's, and for a fun way to meet other spookies in your area.

This community is open membership, anyone is welcome to join. Even though it will be a little while before this picnic basket gets rolling again - please watch this space for updates. If you have questions, ideas, or comments feel free to leave them or make a post. I moderate posts made to this community only in an effort to keep your friends list from getting all sorts of spam that you didn't ask for.

P.S. I do realise that this has the potential to create all sorts of unwarranted drama. If you have questions feel free to ask, but drama is not going to be tolerated in this community - and this will be the first and last you hear about the norcalspooknic issue from me.

banned from the other clique
When I first saw this I was, thinking that I was banned from that group but now I know these am two separate groups run by two different people.

Why was I banned from the other group? well all I did was post/link some harmless photos of some picnic locations and I did not say anything, the moderator got aggravated and assumed I said something negative about the planed location and I commented back that pictures are worth a 1000 words, because I that they called me names threatened me and banned me from their group. I still have the emails to prove this.

Anyway I forgot I was even on this group. LOL

Re: banned from the other clique
Well, I have no idea whats really going on over there because I am not actively watching it but I realized that people may have been confused and may have even been told that this community was not active and that norcalspooknic was a new version of this community because I had to go through and delete comments here telling my members so.

However, by all means feel free to make posts here - as long as its in relation to spooky picnics I wont get mad. I only hand approve posts to keep everyone from getting "join my rating site", "and check out this other community/band" spam.

I have no idea where you live and all, but I hope you feel welcome here.

where will be this Spooknic?
Sounds like an interesting topic--eager to learn more. I would recommend that such an event take place downtown, if only because, well, downtown is a very groovy place and there are a great abundance of parks, and because downtown is what it is, there are many freaky people who might not come if it is someplace other than downtown.

Re: where will be this Spooknic?
Thank you for your suggestion! That sounds like a wonderfull idea, I'm moving in from a much different spot in California - so I need all the help I can get, no knowing where everything and everyone is. Downtown is probably also a great spot because I am sure that its easy for everyone to get to even if they don't drive, thats where bus centers and the like tend to be. I will hopefully be up there visiting in a few months so I will have to go scout around there...
