"Let It Be a Dance ..." Oct. 2nd, 2007 @ 03:27 pm

Okay - I need your help. There's a song, as many of you know, called "Let It Be a Dance." I NEED A COPY OF THAT SONG ON CD!

I need to give to someone as a gift. So, beg, borrow and steal - whatever you have to do, get me a copy, please? It doesn't matter if it's from your congregation, from the original writer, or your own singing - I NEED IT!

I'll pay for shipping and handling, and buy you a pound of fairtrade coffee.

Deal?

Rare modly post for uuyoungadults Sep. 19th, 2007 @ 01:19 am

As lj_biz announced earlier this week, LiveJournal will begin using their website analyst company Omniture SiteCatalyst to determine how LJ members are using the site.

According to the announcement:

Omniture is a website analytics service. The system will collect information that's pretty straightforward, including what browser you're using, what site scheme you use, your window size, how people travel through the site (what are the common links, where are people going after viewing their friends page, what people are or aren't clicking on), and things like how many page views different parts of the site get.

* We're only going to apply the cookie to a very small random sampling of users, about 5%.
* We're using the resulting stats to find out what to focus on in the future for LJ.
* The Omniture code doesn’t capture any private data such as payment information provided in the Gift Shop.
* Omniture does not have access to friends-only or private entries.
* You can opt out, and if you've already opted out, you'll stay that way.


5% of LJ's users IS a small amount, but since LiveJournal has given us the opportunity to opt out of this tracking I wanted to put this out to the community, as going either way has it's pros and cons. These are typical website trackers - popular websites such as CNN and Yahoo use them - and they can help improve LJ's service.

However, I am concerned for our members' privacy, especially as a cookie may track your internet activity after you've finished viewing this community.

I would like to see how the rest of you feel.

Poll #1057619 Tracking our members.

Should uuyoungadults opt out of LJ tracking?

Yes (no tracking here!)
8(61.5%)
No (willing to help LJ out)
5(38.5%)


This change in LJ's website analysis will not go into effect until September 27th, so I will leave this poll up until next week. I will post a follow-up announcement regarding the decision.

For those that wish to opt out of LJ's tracking with your personal journals or any communities you might run, go to your Admin Console.
Personal LJ: Type "set opt_exclude_stats 1"
Communities: Type "set for [comm name] opt_exclude_stats 1"

Thanks all, and good night!

My mom said something today to which I'd love to hear a UU response. She said:

One could replace religion entirely with psychology.

Argue or agree?

I know this really isn't the place to just go make a post like this, but I love UUs and I love the concept of this community.

What do you love?



Check it out. Join it maybe. If you like the concept, then just mention it in your lj or a community you're in or whatever.


Thanks.

UU Young Adults at General Assembly Jun. 13th, 2007 @ 06:14 pm
redqueenofevil
I'm going to GA for the first time, and was wondering if others here are going to be there. Is this also your first General Assembly? If not, any tips for the first timer?

Can I just show up? Jun. 6th, 2007 @ 01:54 am

Hey everyone, I'm really new to unitarian universalism, and have done quite a bit of reading, including finding the congregations near my college and where I'm home during the summer. I have all the info, now I just need to show up! But I'm curious, is there anything I need to do before I go? I feel weird just randomly showing up as a new person on a Sunday, but if that's acceptable then that's what I shall do. I'm pretty shy at first, and get really nervous doing new things, especially when they are social, so you can probably understand how anxious I am even just merely thinking of going.

Thanks for the advice/help ahead of time! =)
