Well, Kimberly asked us to make an information thread for this forum so Polar and Blaky are on the job!
Well, basically, any 'omg[insert name here] is soooooo hott' thread is usually unneeded. There are plenty of threads that have actual discussions about the celebrities.
celebrities that have been repeated many a time:
the members of Good Charlotte(prodominantly Billy)
Okay, the celebrities listed here are often repeated, as I said. However, some of you may notice a few are missing(i.e.: Orlando Bloom, Chad Michael Murray, Hilary Duff, etc.). That's because they have official threads already. The ones listed here still need them so feel free to make them. However, make them nice. There are several pointers here for you
READ THESE RULES!!
THEY CANNOT BE STRESSED ENOUGH!!
I-"[OMGSOHAWT!!1] is spam. Do NOT post it here."
This thread is about having ACTUAL conversations. Not running in here and spamming! If you are posting in this forum, please include some information in your post. The fact that you find a celebrity "Purdy" is not information. It is spam, and will be treated as such. Do not try to start conversations with this sort of material. Joking/chatting (which wouldn't contain any useful information about celebrities) is allowed, but don't overdo it. Try to keep a celebrity as the focus of the conversation. The chatterbox is for chatting. .
If someone says they don't like a certain celebrity, do not try to force them to like that celebrity. Everyone has their own personal ideas as to who they think is hot/smart/sexy/ect, do not expect everyone to have your same ideas. If you ask people what they think of someone, and they say they hate them, it is their choice. Do not flame people who don't like your favorite celebrity. Respect their choices and move on. .
III-"What Belongs Here?"
Any thread in the celebrity forum, must be about a specific or a specific group of celebrities. Threads about "Have you ever seen Family Guy, Isn't It Funny?" don't belong in this sub-forum. If the thread was about "Seth Green as Chris from Family Guy", that would be acceptable. Another thing, musicians count as celebrities. BUT here you must talk about them rather than their music. If the thread only talks about how good their music is, it doesn't belong here. .
IV-"Making A Thread"
If you want to make a thread in the celebrity forum, first check AT LEAST five pages back, as well as in the below lists for a similar thread. If there already is one, DON'T make one. Reply in the already made thread. If there isn't one and you decide to make your own thread, don't make the beginning message, "ISN'T [insert-name-here] HOT?!?!". The thread should tell something about the celebrity. Threads that do not follow these rules will be treated as spam. .
This is an appropriate message for starting a topic about, say, Jennifer Aniston.
This thread is dedicated to Jennfier Aniston. I think she is wonderful actress, and I love the tv show friends. I also think she is very attractive and sexy. If you don't know who she is, below is a picture and a short filmography.
[IMAGE WOULD BE HERE]
[LIST OF FILMS WOULD BE HERE]
The message below is NOT appropriate.
OMG! Isn't Jennifer Aniston Hot? What do you think?
1: I cannot stress this enough, seeing as my pet peeves are spelling and grammar. Try to refrain from using chatspeak. I'm not saying this as a rule, but as a suggestion. Yes, I know chatspeak and '1337' are really popular on the internet but it's very hard to read and sometimes the point of your post gets lost
2: And by conversation, just don't jump in and say 'hi', actually say something about the actor:
example: say I had a thread about Corey Haim, nowadays, he's a pretty obscure actor.
You could say: 'hey, I know who you're talking about, I liked him in [instert movie he's been in]'
and the conversation could go from there
3: Don't bump. This forum moves relatively slow so bumping won't be needed. If the owner of the thread cares about it enough, they will bump it themselves if it gets too low
4: Be openminded. Just because someone has a different opinion than you, don't jump all over them. They are completely entitled to their opinion, just as you are
5: This is another one I can't stress enough: please please please, check the first three or four pages of the forum before you make a thread so you'll know if there is an active one already
6: Don't start a versus thread: Isaviel's 'This or That' thread should help [link]
7: Same goes with a 'Hot or Not' thread, Isaviel also made a 'Celebrity Hot or Not' thread
8: Don't spam. By this, I mean, don't go into a thread going 'I'm just here for the gold' or something to that extent...use the chatterbox
9: Please refrain from making any 'Post who you think is hot' threads. There is now a well put together OFFICIAL one. [link]
Most of this was stated by Blaky but I'm just adding in some.
1: Learn to spell celebrities' names. Please, it saves a lot time.
^thanks a lot to Isaviel's 'Why do you hate celebrities' thread for helping me with this
Alright, people hate celebrities. It's a given. In fact, a few celebrities irk me as well.
However, have you ever stopped to ask yourself why you hate a certain celebrity?
Of course, there is the obivous reason for some(when it comes to hating the recent pop divas): that they're "whores"
A whore, by definition,(and I may be paraphrasing but I will get the actual definition up here soon) someone who is a prostitute, someone who exchanges sexual intercourse for money(or other things).
Thus, do you have any proof that [insert popular female celebrity's name here] sells her body for cash? I highly doubt it.
You might say they dress like a whore. They're just confident enough in their self-image to feel free enough to wear revealing clothes. Thus, comes the infamous saying 'If you got it, flaunt it.'
However, I think that hatred for these people boils down to jealousy pure and simple in the end. Why would you be jealous? Because they're usually about your age and yet they're famous and filthy ******** rich. I even admit to being jealous to them.
Link to Isa's thread(it will explain things far better than I can): Why?
List of Celebrity Threads:
These specific threads were selected by how active and how well they were constructed. Many I may have added were left out, due to improper construction manner. (These celebrities deserve better than OMGSOHAWT!!)
(Some threads may not be properly made but added, due to lack of threads made about the specific celebrity)
REMINDER: If a celebrity is on this list, do NOT make a thread about that celebrity. Threads made breaking this rule will be removed.
If you believe a thread that belongs here has been left out, PM me the name and link of the thread and it may be added.(If it has been properly constructed) Also, please pm me if there are any broken links. Thanks. . Eleni Star helped find several of the threads above, a shoutout to Eleni!!!
The mods made us wait for a while until we were able to get a guide to posting in the book forum stickied. I think the thread had about 20 pages of bumping and meaningless chatter before they stickied it.
