JOINING THIS COMMUNITY
1. Membership to this community is moderated. Apply to join, and a mod will approve your membership. To apply, just leave a comment to this post, or click one of the 'Join Community' buttons.
NOTE: You won't be able to post or read posts until your membership has been approved -- this may take time.
2. Membership is open to anyone, anywhere in the world -- you don't have to live in London or the south-east to join. We have several members who joined so they could meet up with other fans when they come to London on holiday, for business, or for conventions.
3. Because this journal contains adult concepts, it is only open to lj users who are over 14, and have a birthday ole enough listed on their profile.

BEHAVIOUR IN THIS COMMUNITY
1. Don't be a dick. Old hands: remember you were new once. Newbies: respect the culture and manners that have evolved over years. Everyone: remember we're all (supposed to be) adults here.
2. Stay on topic. If in doubt, ask the mods.
3. Be aware of privacy: your own, and others'. Think carefully about how much you want members of this community to know about you, and don't repost information from flocked entries or comments without permission.
4. Be as polite, friendly and welcoming as you can -- the whole point of this comm is to keep in contact with old friends, and make new ones!

HOW TO USE LIVEJOURNAL
1. If you're new to Livejournal, the Frequently Asked Questions section is over here: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faq.bml
2. If you're new to fandom on Livejournal, read [livejournal.com profile] devildolls's "Basic Do/Don't Post" post in [livejournal.com profile] newbieguide here: http://community.livejournal.com/newbieguide/13328.html#cutid1
3. If you're new, don't sign your posts or your comments (unless you're using a shared journal, or logged out) -- it makes you look odd, because if you're logged in, your username is right there.

POSTING TO THIS COMMUNITY
1. For privacy's sake, posts are set to be visible to members only by default; you can change this security level when you post if you want to.
2. Please don't use fancy fonts, formatting and colours, or huge or tiny text.
3. By default, comments are not screened. When swapping emails and personal details, be aware of privacy issues: if you want to screen comments, you have to set that yourself when you post an entry.
4. Don't post so often it irritates, but at the same time, if you're editing an old post to add important new information, don't assume that people will go back and re-read your post.
5. Please do tag your entries. If you want a new tag created, please ask.

COMMENTING ON POSTS IN THIS COMMUNITY
1. Comments are set to 'everybody', so any community member can comment to any post they can see.
2. By default, comments are not screened. When swapping emails and personal details, be aware of privacy issues: if you want to screen comments, you have to set that yourself when you post an entry.
3. If comments aren't screened then any members of the comm who can see the main post can also see all the comments to it.
4. Anonymous comments are allowed, but anon commenters have to pass a CAPTCHA test to prove they're human.
5. IP addresses will be logged for all commenters.

SPOILERS
1. Don't be a dick. Please don't post spoilers for recent things. If you're not sure it's a spoiler, put it behind an lj cut.
2. If you do see a spoiler, don't complain to the original poster or the mods about it -- you read posts and comments to this community at your own risk.


(Some of these rules are adapted from [livejournal.com profile] temaris's rules in [livejournal.com profile] mckay_sheppard, and [livejournal.com profile] devildolls's "Basic Do/Don't Post" post in [livejournal.com profile] newbieguide here: http://community.livejournal.com/newbieguide/13328.html#cutid1.)

[personal profile] zellieh
As it says in the profile, this is a community for fans in the London area and the south-east who want to meet up sometimes to share their love of various fandoms, hang out, chat, and have fun.

This is the post for questions, comments, and offers to help co-mod, so I have made this post PUBLIC.

I've never modded a community before, and I'm still setting this one up, so if you have any suggestions, talk to me.

Membership is currently moderated. Please do join -- I don't intend to turn anyone away.

If you've recieved an invite to join, that's because I saw you were a member of [livejournal.com profile] london_slashers, which sadly seems to have died recently as there hasn't been a post over there in months, and so I thought you might be interested in joining this community.

Also, if you want to promote this community on your own journals, please do.
