Like a classic ratings community, you must submit an application and then be voted on by existing members to be stamped... BUT the difference is that here, we are looking for intelligence and personality, not just aesthetics. Aesthetics are a plus, but are by no means required.
Pics are required, but votes will depend mostly if not solely on your application. Pics submitted with your application may be of you or something you think represents you. Just submit something. We encourage stamped members to post whatever they want: pics, writing, trivia, art; anything you find interesting or think other members will find interesting. Stamped member posts are unmoderated. Essentially, this is an exclusive free forum.
RULES: -Do not post or comment if you are not stamped or you will be banned.
-If you join, please post an application in a reasonable amount of time (i.e. 1 or 2 days). If you stall for too long, you may be kicked out.
-If you can't take criticism, don't post an application. If things get out of hand, a mod will step in.
-Applications should be behind an LJ Cut. If you don't know how to do this find out here.
-You may not delete or edit your application at all during the voting process, this will get you banned. We will make sure votes don't get out of hand. Feel free to edit as much as you want after you are stamped.
-Voting periods are 48 hours long, or until every stamped voter has voted, whichever comes first. After this you will be stamped or rejected. If you are rejected, you may reapply in 2 weeks. If you are rejected the second time, you must leave the community.
-If it has been 3 or 4 days and you have not been stamped, please leave a message in my personal journal or send me an email.
-In the event of a tie, a mod will cast the deciding vote.
-If you are stamped, you may not vote on applications that were posted before yours, even if they are not stamped yet.
-If you are stamped, post whatever you want, whenever you want. Stamped members' posts are unmoderated. If you are posting something revealing, post it behind an LJ cut with a warning for those at work.
-Do not promote unless you have dspin's permission.
-I want this to be a free forum, so I am trying to make the rules list as short as possible at the present. These rules may be subject to change by the owner.
-If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to contact dspin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
