[MOD POST] Refresher course on how to join Omona and the rules!

I must let in about 50-100 users into this community every couple of weeks so I think it's about time we take care of some housekeeping.

First I will go over HOW YOU CAN JOIN OMONA IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER YET and then I'LL TELL YOU OUR RULES. I'm not putting anything under a Livejournal cut, this is serious time yall.

Wanna join Omona?

1. Too many spambots are on the membership queue so I've been tightening it up a bit unlike before when I was more lenient but now I have to be more strict or else

--Empty, no activity whatsoever
--A combination of both of those things BUT we've let in accounts whose profiles are more dressed up (have friends, joined communities, includes a bio, have made entries) AND were also less than 4 months old
--Your email might not be validated and Livejournal made it so you can't join. There's no way for us to bypass that.

2. The fastest way to get into the community?
  a. Hit the join button and then message a maintainer personally. The list of maintainers can be found on the profile page.
  b. Or have a friend who is already a member and have them message a maintainer.
  c. Or you can email omonamods@gmail.com but make sure you tell us your username. You don't need a 4 month old lj account for this but just know if you start acting out of pocket we WILL ban you.

3. Did you get rejected? Do what's in #2.

So now that you're a member of Omona, here are the codes of conduct.
Omona's got to have a code.

--STOP LURKING AND DON'T BE AFRAID TO COMMENT! I know it's intimidating especially when we have such strong personalities in here. You can just say "hi it's my first time commenting" and you'll see people will be nice.

top silly <-- this is us

--If you say something problematic and you get called out on it, don't get butthurt and take it personally. Learn from it, grow up, and become a better more conscious human being or you can just go somewhere else.

--Celebrities are fair game. If your bias gets hated on, it's not the end of the world. For example the other day someone said something about my girl Minji, I think I handled it pretty well. In the case where you feel compelled to defend your bias remember that  it's okay to walk away when it gets too much, your bias will not hate you for it especially because they don't even know you exist.

jack harkness whatever <-- this should be you

--Do NOT personally attack members. Do not take anything from their journal, twitter, tumblr, facebook etc and use it against them in a way that is humiliating or demeaning. Don't steal their icons, that might actually be a Livejournal rule too. Do not insult someone because of their beliefs/sexuality/gender/race. Generally when someone is acting extremely hostile we will tell you to fall back, chill out etc. Like I said do not get so butthurt that you start to engage in these kinds of embarrassing behaviors. It's not cute, it's not funny, and you will get dealt with. Get me?

this is you --> i&apos;ve made a huge mistake

--We do have posts in which we delve into more serious social topics and those tend to be a hotbed of wank and high emotions. Tread lightly. Think before you comment. We have members that have gone through abuse and trauma so some of these posts are triggering to them. My advice: don't be an asshole. Be respectful, be kind. This can be a learning experience for you. If you or someone you know have been personally attacked let a mod or opd know. We look at potential troubles on a case by case basis, taking into account the context (and/or history if necessary) before we act.

--Just be cool be funny be smart be conscious be nice. We are all here because we love kpop or we love to make fun of kpop and we don't feel like engaging with people on other websites lawlz. Let's make this an enjoyable experience for everyone.

When I first joined I used to be scared of posting in the serious issue posts, some of you guys are really formidable.

I'll never forget one of my first comments here was of a graphic gay porn pic...
I was young and naive, (and thought this place was like oldskool ONTD).

I use to be pretty explicit...
Good times~
turdferguson 10th-Jul-2013 12:52 am (UTC)

Getting in now sounds like so much work. I'm glad I joined when it was open 3 years ago. I don't use LJ for anything other than Omona and arama.
purekpopology 10th-Jul-2013 01:10 am (UTC)
Same, I'm glad I got in during an open membership period!

I can't believe I've been an OMONA member for 5 years, that's stable relationships type shit.
Especially in the Gay community, that's some long term, commitment type shit.
OMONA y'all better put a ring on it, tbh.

I don't even what to think about how long I've been a ONTD member/reader, that's just depressing.

When I joined I only commented on maybe 1 post per week. now i make posts when needed and comment on every post I read and spend abt half of my day on this site.

For ruining my life -_____-
anthonymarie 10th-Jul-2013 02:33 am (UTC)
you're welcome!!

idk how I became a member of omona when ontd rejected me lol. And all I wanted to do was comment on teen wolf posts.
xredada 10th-Jul-2013 10:32 pm (UTC)
Same here lol. Still not a member of ONTD haha. No idea how I was accepted here since I only made my account to comment on omona/ONTD (I never knew LJ had such a big following for general bloggers/fic writers). I was so lost and noobie.

Thanks to that kind mod.
krobwell 10th-Jul-2013 02:59 am (UTC)
i made an LJ solely to join omona

I might have made one comment in the past, but I can't even remember what it was about.
I'm so happy I joined Omona though. Maybe I will start commenting more. :)
Thanks for Modding and keeping us all safe.

luvey 10th-Jul-2013 04:00 am (UTC)
aww reading some of these posts takes me down Omona memory lane.

when Kpop posts getting kicked out of ONTD and coming here instead, i followed along. the snark. the wit. when the FFA was just one. the fun times.

then a dark period when trolls appeared trying to be witty but just coming across as mean. trying to get a rise out of people. i still think people were tying to be omona famous. and when they felt the attack needed to get personal and bitch the wankers would go to unmodded. people left because they didn't like the negativity.

for the longest time i couldn't get former active posters to come back.

but Omona has changed....for the better, little by little from those dark days good job mods may it continue to grow. i've met some amazing people due to Omona online and in person.

okay enough mushy posting.

Same here, I've met someone of my best friends here and it makes me really happy as a mod to hear that from other people ♥ The OMTD love is strong~ (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
