best of the ma'fuckin best!

what we are:
-a rating community that rates your application rather than your pictures. we want real people who are actually rad, not just in an application.
-the best of the best. we don't accept just anyone.

what we are not:
-an emo community. while we base a large part of our vote on the music you listen to, we like a much wider variety of music than emo and it's related genres.
-a photo rating community. while we ask for photos, we discourage voting on appearance alone. anyone can look good in a photo.

what we like:
-people who know the difference between "your" and "you're"
-open minds

what we despise:
-when people take the internet far too seriously

we have no graphics at the moment, but don't worry, we'll get them. this is a brand effin new community d00dz. chill.

rules for applicants:
1. use the application in the box. delete anything in parenthesis, those are simply to clarify and are annoying to read on every application.
2. don't join just to be an asshole to people. there are plenty of other shitty rating communities for that.
3. fill out the application completely and take your time. it's long for a reason. we don't accept just anybody.
4. if we ask for a certain numer of examples do not give more or less than asked. we realize that you like more than five bands. if we wanted more we would ask for more.
5. do not respond to every comment or act like an asshole if someone says no. if rejected, at least save face by going out gracefully.
6. write bitches and hoes in the subject line and whatever stupid song lyric you think is seriously deep as the text in the cut (jokes!)
7. don't write anywhere other than in your own application until you are accepted.
8. if your journal is friends only, you must add _____faraway to your friends list, at least for the duration of your application process. i read more than your application. if you act pretty chill in your application, but act like a moron in your livejournal i will deny you.
9. don't take shit too seriously. it's just the internet.

rules for members:
1. promote! Promote! PROMOTE! but really.
2. you are allowed to be an asshole, but only in extreme cases. we don't want to ruin these silly little scenester's internet egos. . oh wait, scratch that last part. but really, know when to quit is all i'm saying. and have positive things to say too.
3. post pictures you took of bands, friends, inanimate objects, anything besides cheesy myspace-esque pictures of yourself. you can also say whatever the fuck you want. rant about what's pissing you off, share a band you're in love with, offer up ideas for deep and meaningful discussion. whatever.
4. vote and stay active. if i notice you haven't been active (without mentioning why somewhere) you'll be deleted.
5. don't discriminate because of age. age ain't nothing but a number.
6. don't be petty or act like a know-it-all.
7. don't accept people solely because they're "hot."
8. please link to the community in your profile.
9. don't take shit too seriously. it's just the internet.

how the community works:

you will fill the application out completely. members will give you a "yes" or a "no" vote and explain why. after a few days you will be either accepted or rejected. majority rules, mod votes count twice because we're much pickier.

(until we have at least ten members, i will give you a yes or a no. accepted members feel free to comment if you'd like.)
