Children in Need

Please, lovely ladies and gentlemen, would you all do me a big favour and go leave a comment on this post. It's raising money for Children in Need. Comments are needed by midnight UK time on Friday, and each comment you make is worth 10p (about 16c US?). They're adding up, and it would be appreciated if you added your bit!
love me

more help, please!

I promise, I won't do this again, and I know it's off topic, but this is the last survey I need filling out: here. This survey is for research for a final year degree project (the project counts for over 20% of the degree) so it is important, and if you could help out, it only takes 5 minutes to fill in (lots of tickyboxes), that would be fabulous and much haribo will be donated.

Mods: Of course, I will take this down if you like, but I would appreciate it if it could be left up, I do hope it's ok.

PRETTYENFRIENDS reminder!

To everyone wondering what's going on with the new prettyenoughfriends community...it's almost done and will hopefully be open by this week. Things have been coming up (as always), so it's taking longer. Just thought I'd let everyone know that was sticking around for it. ^_^

PRETTYENOUGH IS CLOSED!

prettyenough___ is now offically closed. No new memberships will be accepted and no new posts will be made to keep active. Thank you everyone for your support and activeness over the year, it's been a great time.

To all still current members of prettyenough___, a new community is in the works. Specifics will come later. If you are interrested in staying in touch us, and enjoyed the time with everyone, keep us on your friends list, to see when the new place is opened. I will be announcing it here. I will say ahead of time - it will NOT be a rating community, but more of a place for the past members to hang out and have fun.

Thank you ♥

~ Jen

mod//NEWS + VOTING

I have two things I want to address here:

1. Okay everyone, I asked Kayla for her input in this, and I don't think others will mind. So I am going to put the community back to being friends only. However I will have it so people can join as usual. It will be the only way they can see our entries, and this will hopefully protect us all.

I hope no one has a problem with this. I figure since we all love to post pictures and such, it would probably make it safer to do it this way. If you have ANY problems making posts or commenting due to me changing the communities settings to friends only posts, please comment in this POST ONLY and let me know. I will try my best to fix the problem. ^_^

2. I am happy to see that we currently have 5 new applications over the past 5 days. However, I am not happy with the fact that sofar between all those applications about 18 people have only voted!! We have over 60+ members here, and most are supposedly active and were asking constantly when the community would reopen for new membership - well here it is people, so do your part and vote and promote around!!

I don't want to just see 18 votes in the applications!

I promoted in many places the first day we were open again, so if anyone gets bored enough, feel free to keep spreading the word to everyone that we are back! Sorry I hope I didn't sound mean, I just want to be able to stamp people with more votes than there are right now. So if you missed it - here are the links to the applications!

Needs more votes:

egoamormihi // Application
llama_pejama // Application
___breakmyfall // Application
_bigpimpin // Application
mochadoll // Application

Plus go and promote! ^_^

I will work on the new theme and member and it should be posted at the latest by Friday (my day off, FINALLY!). Plus I will hopefully have lots of pics to post possibly by Saturday night from the Pride Parade in Providence, RI. <3

stamped / / read this

I want everyone who reads this to pass this on somehow. Something has to be done.

This is not a hoax.

Meet Zach, who lives in Tennessee. He's sixteen. Really dead-on guy, as far as I can see. Smart, friendly, kind.

Oh, and gay. There's the problem to his parents, who have enrolled him in an indoctrination camp run by 'Christians' to turn him 'right'. If you follow that link to his blog and scroll down to 29th May, you can hear this in his own words. Just in case something happens to the entry in question, I'm reposting the document he found that contains the rules of this camp.


the fucking crazy rules of this Collapse )

so apparently the guys parents lied to him about the program, and he somehow got a hold of those rules, as he wasnt supposed to (as you can tell by all the "(not to be given to client)"'s in there. it seems that none of the clients are to know what the program is actually about until they get there, in effect, tricking/forcing them into going. i suggest you all read it... heres a few of the rules:

1. All new Refuge clients will be placed into Safekeeping for the initial two to three days of their program. A client on safekeeping may not communicate verbally, or by using hand gestures or eye contact, with any other clients, staff members, or his/her parents or guardians. In case of a practical need, Safekeeping clients may write down their question or request and show it to another client, staff member, or their parent or guardian. Writing may only be used when absolutely necessary. Parents and guardians must enforce their child¹s safekeeping status at home or in their temporary lodging.

6. No television viewing, going to movies, or reading/watching/listening to secular media of any kind, anywhere within the client¹s and the parent¹s/guardian¹s control. This includes listening to classical or instrumental music that is not expressly Christian (Beethoven, Bach, etc. are not considered Christian). The only exception to the media policy is the weekly movie.

12. Refuge clients must be accompanied by a parent during any trip to a public restroom.

13. No access to malls of any kind.

19. Refuge clients must keep their bedroom doors open at all times, day or night.

12. Do not be defensive. While being spoken to, one may not respond to defend him/herself or return confrontation to the person speaking.

5. Clients are expected to remain accountable with all relationships. No cell phones, phone calls, or contact with anyone
outside the program without prior permission. Phase 2 and Training Program clients may make approved relational phone calls.

(and heres some rules that the parents are to follow)

5. Your client is not allowed to talk to anyone outside of your home including friends or family. Do not tell client who has called for them or who is asking about them. Keep the thoughts of the client focused on his/her treatment.
