Community guidelines: (These rules are an exact duplicate of the rules on LJ's Girl_Gamers community. I will modify them if need be.)
# Pictures outside an LJ-Cut must not exceed 400x400. If you don't want to create an LJ-Cut, you may create a thumbnail no larger than 400x400 as a link. You may post 3 images meeting those requirements, but if you have more, please keep the fourth image and any others behind a cut.
If you have multiple pictures, you must also make sure to stack them vertically. (This prevents mass screen scrolling on our pretty layout.)
# No intro posts. These posts have become a problem and we simply do not want to see them, regardless of what other content your post contains. This rule is not open for debate and is expected to be followed. We have rules to make this community fair. There is no reason why we should have to pick and choose what posts skirt around the rules, but are allowed to stay for various other factors. We're happy you're here and hope you feel welcome, but this isn't an AA meeting. There's no need for formal introductions, just plop into the conversation.
# No console wars. In a community of this size, you're bound to have people with varying tastes. Some will prefer the Xbox to the Gamecube, some will prefer a PC over a Playstation, and some may prefer tabletop games over video games. Some will enjoy a First Person Shooter over a Role Playing Game. People are allowed to like or dislike various games, various consoles, various genres and so on, but please refrain from console wars. We're not asking people to avoid speaking of what they dislike, but please do not fight with people over it.
# Age is not an entitlement.Being older does not make you right, so please refrain from being rude to people younger than you.
# Please stay on topic. The community is about gaming and topics related to gaming. Off topic posts will be removed, regardless of how important you believe the topic to be.
# Show respect to others. If you're having a problem with another user, please notify the mods. Your problem must be an issue where a user is being disruptive to the community. Please do not notify us that we need to take action against someone who has an opinion you don't share. Sorry, but a troll is not someone you just disagree with.
# Promoting a community is ok as long as it's related to video games. If you're unsure, check with me.
# Icons are allowed. If you made icons from a game, fantastic. Feel free to post them, just make sure to use an LJ cut. You can post 4 in the open, the rest have to be hidden in cut. (If there's only one more icon, I won't kill you for posting 5 in the open. I know what a pain in the butt it is to make an lj-cut for just one icon.)
# Guys ARE welcome here. If a guy wants to join this community, more power to him. If he feels that he can be comfortable with a majority of females, that's great. Part of the reason why I created this community is so I could come to a place and not be barraged by sexist statements ("Man! You're a gamer? I didn't know girls could play video games! I thought all they cared about was makeup!" Oh yes, I've heard it before). In so, I'd be sexist to say that men couldn't join. Obviously the men that come here are comfortable in this setting and are HAPPY to see some female gamers out there.
Seeing as this community also promotes gender acceptance within the gaming culture, it would be moronic to turn around and make this community a "no boys allowed" club. So please stop ranting about when men join this community. Until we instate a rule that says men can't join, please stop bombarding guys with questions as to why they joined a community for girls.
# Use appropriate LJ-cut. You should use LJ-cut if/when::
- Posting a picture. Please have a warning in the cut tag if it contains profanity or anything that might be considered offensive. (Thumbnails of a -small- size are ok.)
- Posting anything that spoils the ending of a game. If this occurs, please give a warning of the spoiler in the cut tag.
- Posting test/quiz results. I don't have a problem with them, as long as you put them behind a cut. Some people find them annoying.
- Posting icons. (As mentioned above.)
# Represent yourself appropriately. We're a family-oriented community. There are kids here, and people tap in from work. Keep all posts and icons PG-13. This means no pornography. While artful nudity is beautiful, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some people may be offended by nudity, tasteful or not. I don't like censorship. In fact, I despise it. But, all the same, I don't think it's unreasonable for me to request you use a different icon for this community, should your default be inappropriate. Just use your head. I need porn in my face as much as I need a Gamecube controller glued to my butt. We don't need to get folks in trouble with their bosses, or expose the youngin's to anything that may cause their parents to lose their marbles over.
# We don't condone software piracy. That sums it up pretty well, I think - any posts or comments related to downloading warez, how to find serials or keygens, cracking games, or anything of the sort will be summarily deleted without warning. This includes comments like "just download a keygen" or "get a friend to make you a copy" - unless the software has been placed in the public domain, making a copy is still piracy. Arrrrr.
