  7. "We need to stop making decisions that will increase activity and starting make decisions that will increase the sense of community. Sometimes we get lucky. The two are closely correlated. Communities aren’t highly active platforms. The’re not technology, they’re not cost savings, they’re not even people. They’re the psychological feeling that people believe they are part of a community. We often need to do things that seem strange to develop that sense of community. We might reduce the focus of the community, create strong boundaries to joining, celebrate a minor member milestone, participate in seemingly silly social events. But, every single one of these actions, is carefully considered to create a stronger sense of community."

    Kitten Going as Mr. Moneybags Again for Halloween

    by Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent

    Rags never has to think too hard about his Halloween ensemble. Every Oct. 31 for every year of his young life, the kitten has dressed up as the well-known board game billionaire, Mr. Moneybags.

    "His resemblance to that guy from Monopoly is pretty uncanny," roommate Dani Westerson said.

    Though going with the same costume year in and year out seems to be working for the kitten, Westerson expressed some resentment Rags for taking the easy way out.

    "Every single year, Rags just tosses on a top hat made out of cardboard and boom, he’s done," she said. "I have to think so hard to come up with a clever, timely idea. He doesn’t have to try and still wins Best Costume at every party. I don’t think it’s just the costume at play here, to tell you the truth."
