[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/

Umm, so, I never watched AI before Adam performed last week. I fell in love with Brokeback Mountain last summer and that led me to fall in love with Queer as Folk and many QAF fans are Adam fans and as I learned more about Adam I discovered Kradam and now I've been obsessed with Kradam for the last few weeks and I finally found the super secret tinhat community that's mentioned here and there. Phew! My journal here is pretty much empty because my main journal is on IJ (same name).

Could I please join so that I can continue in my Kradam obsession? thnx!

I've had this same icon since last summer. Do I belong here? You betcha! I'm home. Hey everybody! So glad to be here, and I'd like to thank my dear friend krissypoo for recommending me for the invite -- and thanks xwhatxitxisxhox for the actual invite. I've been on hiatus from the Kradam world for so many months now, because of a cross-country move and not having much work and plenty of worry. But I just got a job, just got a new place, and now I can put my attention back on my boys. Oh, btw, I am a gay male in my mid-40s, so hope that beats down any stereotyping of Kradam fans. Not to mention, I was told that y'all would be embracing of that. I appreciate that. One of my favorite Kradam moments was when Top 10 were on Larry King. Not the famous one with the photo on this site (although that's golden), but a lesser discussed, subtler moment when it SEEMED as if they were playing footsie and then gave each other intense loving looks. Sarver could see it all from his vantage point. Just the CONCEPT of Kradam made me so happy through Season 8 and into last summer. And I look forward to it doing so again. Look forward to your posts.

Hi! I noticed I got de-friended (my fault, I think, because I do tend to lurk, lol) and I hope I can be added again? I'd really appreciate it because I'm loving all the kradam and the discussions. :D

Hi! I'm a lurking lurker who lurks and I went to look at the comm this morning to make me smile before I go take the Family Law final from hell this morning and saw that I was kicked out! :( I know I'm a notorious lurker but would it be possible to be added again? I promise I'll come out of the woodwork more. If not, I totally understand...just figured it couldn't hurt to ask! :)

oh, so... hi! I used to be a member but got cut, de-friended, unfriended? I don't know what's the word. well, I think its because I don't comment... or post... at all, but I swear its just because I really don't talk a lot in RL so I don't talk at all here! so, this is my first comment, ever! and its asking if I could be friended again? because i know you have no idea who I am but I think you're all so great! and I need my kradam!

Didn't know there was a commenting requirement? I rarely comment anywhere, although occasionally I show in random _ai posts or to report on Adam's secret Halloween concert via my mother-in-law (my one claim to fame!). Genuinely loved reading this comm. Sad face.
