[identity profile] xwhatxitxisxhox.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] beepxbeepxbeep

This post is for new members of the community. I will link it in the info and maybe have someone put it up top on the main page. We have accepted some new members. We are very selective of who we let into the community. And I think the reason why should be answered in this post.

Your mods are [livejournal.com profile] mlwpeace and [livejournal.com profile] xwhatxitxisxhox

Let me explain a few things...

First, why we closed membership in the first place. No, we are not elitist bitches. We are cautious, and with good reason. The drama llama has visited a few times and so we have to be careful.

Some basic rules and information. May be a little tl;dr but I'd like to get the point across and make sure that you understand.

1. This is a tinhat comm. There will be srs bsns tinhatting. We are BSC. If you don't like it, GTFO.
We like our lulz. We really do. We are good times. But I created this community because it is a safe haven for tinhatters to do their thing without being bashed. There have been some scumbags with no lives who have tried to ruin our fun. So please...if you are only here for the lulz or are not a tinhatter or cannot handle serious tinhatting, then this place may not be for you. If you have nothing better to do than to come into the place that is supposed to be our safe haven (comm, chats, or anything else) and make fun of us, you are truly pathetic.

What I've added to the info:

If you are a new member and not a very serious tinhatter, I MUST warn you that if you can't handle hardcore tinhatting, then it would probably be best if you turn around now. If you like Kris and Katy, I hope you can handle the more negative comments. Before you get the wrong idea, NOT ALL TINHATTERS HATE THE HOT POCKETS. But in this comm, you are pretty much allowed to say what you want. And there some pretty over the top things that are said sometimes. This is just a warning. I don't want any butthurt and I don't want anyone making fun of anyone else.

Same thing, pretty much.

2. Do. Not. Screencap. Our. Stuff. Don't do it.

3. BE RESPECTFUL. Snark and hate are two different things. Watch it.

4. Noodz go under a cut.

5. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT drag things from this community over to any other community. We will get you.

There are not too many rules and we try to let you be as free as possible. But if it gets out of hand, you will get banned. If we find out that you have been sneaky or have brought anything outside of this comm or the chats, we will get you. Don't think we won't. We are ninjas. Trust us.

Proper Etiquette

These things should really be quite obvious.

1) Be nice to your fellow tinhatters.

2) If you do not agree with someone, do not jump on them. Not all tinhatters are alike and there are many different theories about all kinds of events and things. They are allowed to have their own thoughts and form their own opinions about things. Some people choose to be objective and rational while tinhatting. Some may even make your tinhat sad and may be "Debbie Downers". Some people are BSC/OTT. And some will make you say "I choose to believe this is true".

This does not mean that you can't disagree with someone. We want discussion to happen and that includes disagreeing with people. Talking back and forth. It's what will help build and mold your theories. But we ask that you please stay respectful and calm and don't bash or threaten anyone.

3) Don't talk shit. Don't talk shit about members and don't talk shit about the significant others of Kris and Adam. We let you get away with a lot because I don't believe this should be a Nazi regime and I feel that if you have an opinion, you should be allowed to state it. But if we feel you've crossed a line, we will step in.

Now onto some fun things. Here is what we have going on/what will be going on in this comm.

Obviously, tinhatting. Sometimes General Theories posts pop up. But we've recently decided to add some more non-tinhatty things that we can do.

There are some links at the top of the main page, but that is not everything.

Party Posts
[livejournal.com profile] abh83

We have a Kradam party. It's a free-for-all. Manips, fics, theories, pic spams. Have fun.

Every other Friday.

Some other things of interest. (AKA my tl'dr mod posts that you should read.)

1) We have a tinhat radio show every Saturday night. But we're trying to figure out what to do with it after something had happened that is all explained here: http://community.livejournal.com/beepxbeepxbeep/178741.html

2) http://community.livejournal.com/beepxbeepxbeep/177419.html

3) Whatever. Just tolerate people's likes and dislikes. http://community.livejournal.com/beepxbeepxbeep/154197.html

4) If there seems to be some sort of displeasure within the community regarding the mods, the way something is run, some big thing that's happened that may/did cause drama (not that we really ever have any), I might make a member concerns post. Where you can express anything you want to to the mods. We can all talk it out.

5) tl;dr version of the rules. but it makes good points: http://community.livejournal.com/beepxbeepxbeep/4451.html#cutid1

6)There used to be lots of "fun" posts planned. But we've decided that we're going to keep most fic, macros, Idol Secrets, etc. inside the Party Posts.

7) You may not understand the whole Orange Sherbet thing. And some other random things. Just go with it.

8) List of tags http://community.livejournal.com/beepxbeepxbeep/tag/

Joining the line for admission. Kradam is the first thing in fandom that has ever truly pulled me out of lurkerdom. I reeeeeeeeeeeeally seriously want all the speculation and theories and gossip about Kradam there is available, and I've heard that's what y'all do around here. I'm not an asshole, I'm low-drama, and I love the pairing to little bits and pieces!

Would love to be a member. I enjoy hearing the theories and I love these two boys together. They are inspiring to me for many reasons, but their relationship makes me smile. Thanks for considering me.

Hello! Also requesting membership. Kradam is what brought me to ontd_ai in the first place and I miss it:( I only tend to lurk at most as real life limits most of my interaction, so apologise for that and understand if you want someone more active in the comm.

I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.
