Welcome to bitchery!
Having recently gone through a bit of lame online ~drama, Phoebe, Jade and Tam got to thinking about how there were really no communities to discuss random, lulzy and at times srs bsns topics without having to deal with many assholes or power trippers. We wanted a community that offered you a chance to discuss whatever you want without fear of repression or ass-hattery. Thus bitchery
Had a bad day? Had a fucking fantastic day? Green Jello vs. Red Jello? Have a crush on some actor/actress/someone at school or work? Had recent drama and want to bitch about it? What are your thoughts on politics? Abortion? Twilight? Zombies? Religion? Need new music recommendations? bitchery
is where you'll be able to discuss all that and more.
Now read the rules, make sure you understand them, and apply for membership. When (and if) you're accepted, jump right in and start posting and commenting!
If you'd like to be a doll and promote bitchery
in a community or your personal journal, you can find a copy & paste-able code here
.Before You Apply...
Please make sure you have read and understand all of the rules.1. Don't be a twat.
This community is called BITCHERY, but that doesn't mean you can be a bitch to other members. This means no racist, sexist, ageist, homophobic or flammatory comments and/or remarks. No attacking other members at all
. If your brain is bigger than a walnut, you should know by now how to debate and discuss something with another person without resorting to arguments and/or discriminatory comments. Repeat offenders will be smacked hard upside the head with the almighty b& hammer.2. No promotions without permission.
Whether you mod a community that discusses midgets in tights or why the Jonas brothers suck ass, we're pretty sure someone else in bitchery
is interested as well. We're all about being friends, making friends, getting to know each other, etc. If you have a wicked cool community that you mod or are a part of and want to promote it, run it by one of us mods.
Chances are you'll be able to promote, UNLESS
it's a rating community, then it'll be rejected and you'll be mocked by the mods & the community. If we see that the only time you contribute is to promote your community (whether it be in the comments or multiple posts), you'll be deleted and b&. There are plenty of other promoting type communities on lj; try one of them.3. Post as often as you'd like, but make your posts interactive.
As it was stated in rule #2, we're all about making friends. There's no need for a "drive by post" (those posts that allow for little to zero interaction between members). We want to discuss. We want to talk. We want to bitch. If you are inquiring where to find something or need help in a post, for the love of god, make it interactive. The mods will have no problem deleting a post or asking you to edit if it is not interactive.4. About introduction posts.
Meeting and getting to know people can be really fun and exciting, so introduction posts are
allowed. That being said, take a look back at rule #3 and apply it to this rule. If you post an introduction in the community, please make it interactive. Introduction posts are notorious for being posts that other members can't participate in, so please make your introduction post something other members can
participate in. Again, re-read rule #3 and you should get the picture. And if you don't.. well, you're fucked.Membership Requests:
We're not a picky bunch, and while bitchery
is fairly new, we are well aware of the precautions we need to take in order to keep this place a fairly drama-free community.
That being said, we will not be accepting membership requests from:
1. Brand new journals.
2. Journals with barely any, or no, posts.
3. Journals with very low, or no, comments posted or received.
4. Journals with almost no, or no mutual friends.
5. Journals that are members of almost no, or no communities.
We also reserve the right to reject membership based on our own discretion.Contact:
