[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'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.

the only downside of joining is when you're a kawaii as fuck straight dude this dude from the other side of the ocean decides you're his oppa and wants the d

and then cyberstalks your fb from a mod friend

Here since the beginning. 2PM still was everyone's favourite, SuJu was doing their epic Sorry Sorry comeback and wasn't yet on everyone's shit list. SHINee had still pedo bait members. Lollipop by 2NE1 and Big Bang was released and everyone went crazy with giffing, Hyuna's leggings had giant holes. Oh how times change.

aluakard 10th-Jul-2013 10:45 am (UTC)
-STOP LURKING AND DON'T BE AFRAID TO COMMENT! ----- hahha, this is exactly about me. :D :D *shy.
umbrella_smile 10th-Jul-2013 10:47 am (UTC)
I love turdy, she is a better friend than I deserve tbh

Also I feel like bringing my Changmin/porn icons back but they are a lot of work and I mostly comment at ONTD now and no one gets them there.
