livejournal sucks. there are too many big egos, trolls and obsessive fans. this journal is for everyone else. everyone who just wants to meet some interesting new people and intelligently discuss random topics.
most of us love art. feel free to post photographs or scans of your own artwork or anything that you like. as long as they're not lame, quizzes and the like are allowed, too. you can promote, but only remotely cool communities. other than that, post WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT. enjoy!
what the hell to do... (a.k.a. rules & conduct)
once you join _s_t_a_r in your livejournal account, please submit your application within 48 hours. just so members know you’re not silently stalking them.
please don’t vote for other members until you yourself are accepted.
please fill out the ENTIRE application (which is found beneath the rules).
please remember to submit at least TWO, but no more than TEN clear photographs of yourself. we want to know you, if we don’t already. acceptance is, of course, not based on looks and any negative comments on photos would simply be lame, anyway. If you don’t know how to post photos, please see the “helpful links and tutorials” section beneath the application form.
don’t be mean. at least, not too mean.
the first three applicants will be accepted AUTOMATICALLY. after that, the members of _s_t_a_r have 48 hours to vote on subsequent applications. the moderators will then tally the votes and stamp the application either “accepted” or “denied.” keep in mind this is just livejournal. it’s supposed to be fun.
this probably isn’t necessary, but should be said just in case. the presence of racism, sexism, or stereotyping will lead to the erasure of the post. end of story. don’t be a lame-ass.
have fun! tell your fellow livejournal friends! oh, and just so we know you read this, please write “star” in the subject line of your application post.
first, sign up for a LiveJournal account. Next, visit the info page for _s_t_a_r... then join, as pictured below:
writing and posting on livejournal is very simple. first, go to LiveJournal, then click on "journal," followed by "update." write what you'd like to post, and click on the link which allows you to "view more features" beneath your entry space. SELECT THE JOURNAL YOU WANT THE POST TO APPEAR IN (_s_t_a_r, in this case) and fill in any additional information (music, mood, etc.) you'd like to include in your post.
for the 2-10 photos of yourself, you will need a stable place to host them on the internet. Photobucket is perfect and free. upload the photos, then insert them into your application entry.
for instructions on how to insert the photo into your journal, CLICKIE-CLICKIE. Scroll down 3/4 way for these.
finally, we ask that all application posts be kept behind an l/j cut... if you're not sure how to do this, please click HERE.
If things aren't working for you, please visit the FAQ section for assistance. Most topics are covered.
