We expect that there will be an increase in members come christmas, with the Best Friends edition, which is another reason we felt action needed to be taken. We wanted to implement the rules for the newbies :)
First, there are no rules set for this community. For a while the community was ONLY talking of nintendogs once it came out. Now the hype is starting to die down and some people may feel the need to spam the community, or leave posts with no comment ability. We feel this sort of activity is not welcome in the community. We feel that you should be free to discuss whatever you want (within topic of the community). We've come up with a few general rules for the community to live by. They aren't unreasonable, in fact they pretty much are a given, but some poeple are spoil sports :(.
Here are the rules (also on the profile):
No whining or drama. Act like a 10 year old, get the boot. No questions asked!
do not post advertisements for other communities and/or events
unrelated to the Nintendo DS or to Nintendogs. This means no fake cuts
leading back your own community. Linking to your own journal is ok, as
long as it's not promoting another community. Any posts that the mods
feel is spam, will be deleted.
Long posts or big pics not placed behind an LJ cut will be deleted.
Any posts not related to Nintendogs will be deleted. If you are looking for a community for all Nintendo DS games, try </a></b></a>nintendo_ds.
Do not disable comments on your posts.
Before asking questions, please check the memories or previous posts. Repeat questions will be deleted.
Second, we are implementing a 3 strike rule you break three rules, your posting access gets removed, but you will be able to comment. If you break another rule beyond that, you are removed completely.
Third, If your post gets deleted, it most likely is breaking a rule. Please refer back to the rules and if you have any questions please feel free to contact a mod via email.
Fourth, other mods: please respond with your email, to be included in the userinfo. If you do not respond we will assume you are no longer interested in being a moderator and will be removed as one.
Finally, We hope that we will not have to utilize the 3 strike rule. We hope to have fun as dorky as that sounds...
