Miss you all though it may not feel like it. I wish you guys a truly MerryChristmas and the Happiest of NewYears!!!!!!
Welcome to the Rules. It sucks having them, but they are a necessary evil. Please keep in mind that all of these rules also apply to each of the contests/games that are being held. IF there are additional rules for any of those sections, they will be listed at the top of that post. PLEASE READ THESE RULES BEFORE YOU START POSTING OR PLAYING. Each person will receive ONE FREEBIE. That is all.
THE MAIN RULE OF THIS THREAD
It's an unfortunate circumstance, but there are some regulations we have to impose to ensure the stability of our thread. They are as follows: *You MUST have a public profile with your join date viewable. *You MUST be a member on Gaia for at least 2 months. *You MUST have at least 100 posts prior to coming here and asking for a donation or winning any prizes. (However, feel free to stick around and chat until you've met this requirement.. we won't bite!) *Mules will NOT be tolerated. Trust us. We aren't fools. We can smell a mule from a mile away. (..in this case, we WILL bite. Hard.)
THREAD RULES CONTINUED:
A* You MUST follow Gaia's ToS! NO EXCEPTIONS!
B* There will be absolutely NO flaming, trolling, fighting, spamming, or harassment of any kind tolerated within this thread--- *** Posts consisting solely of EMOTICONS will be considered SPAMMING. Absolutely NO PRIZES WILL BE GIVEN TO ANYONE WHO BREAKS THIS RULE. *** One word posts that have absolutely no relevance to the thread or anything going on in it will also NOT be tolerated. THIS INCLUDES BUMPING. Conversation is required. If there's no one to talk to, comment on avis you see or anything like that.. but NO SPAMMING THE THREAD WITH NONSENSE POSTS!
C* DO NOT quote any part of the first page.
D*AVOID MASSIVE QUOTE TOWERS. They take up space and make it difficult for us to follow contest posts.
E* Please be literate when posting. Keep swwearing to a minimum. Be respectful of fellow thread family/friends. Avoid contraversial and offensive topics.
F*NO BEGGING!!! *** DO NOT BEG for prizes. You must earn them. *** DO NOT BEG for donations from either the thread OR people posting here. Beggars will be booted!
**These rules are subject to change at any given time. It is in your best interest to check back daily.**
EACH PERSON IS DIFFERENT FROM THEIR BACKGROUNDS TO THEIR AGE TO THEIR RACE, RELIGION, AND OPINIONS. WHEN WE ARE DEALING WITH A SETTING SUCH AS THIS(on the internet) IT IS SO EASY FOR PEOPLE TO TAKE POSTS THE WRONG WAY. TRY TO UNDERSTAND THAT EACH OF US HAS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT PERCEPTION, SENSE OF HUMOR, WAY OF COMMUNICATING. IF WE ALL CAN BE AWARE OF THESE DIFFERENCES EACH DAY THE PROBLEMS SHOULD BE NON-EXISTENT.
The only rules are to be nice and have fun!!!!! wink
Please don't flood the thread with emoticons when others are present
-- join in the conversation --
we are a fun bunch!
This is just a little spot where I will pay homage to your creativity!
Each week, I will pick my favorite user avatar. There are no rules, as this is NOT a contest. It will just be someone who I feel did a really great job dressing themselves! :3nod If I chose you, you will have your avatar featured for a week in this very spot. And who knows what other reward may lurk in the shadows.. ; so keep those avis lookin snazzy!!

The blacklist. UGH. I hope we never have to use it.. but sadly, every thread must have one. HOWEVER, if everyone just follows all the rules here, then it will get to stay empty!
LET'S KEEP IT EMPTY, PLEASE!!!
