Flowers of Japan Guild
The Flowers of Japan has expanded from this one thread, into an entire guild! Go check out our community at the Flowers of Japan Guild!

The Ten Commandments of Flowers of Japan:
Copied and Modified by Kenchan

</center>01. Thou Shalt Read the First Page in its Entirety
Thou shall be berated by members of Flowers of Japan if thou should decide thee be above reading the first page and do something stupid.

02. Thou Shalt not bump
Thou shalt not not "bump" this thread. Bumps be not welcome here, this thread doth be bumped through conversation. A bump doth be a generally meaningless post, wherein the sole objective doth be to push, or "bump", the topic to the top of the forum. Bumping doth be is the act of posting multiple bumps. If thou wishes to bump, thee be requested to please converse with others. If alone thou art, make something creative and non-bump. Furthermore, the punishment for evil bumping here is transformation into mouse, and then we will have the resident nekos and kitsunes chase you around. *smiles wickedly*

03. Thou Shalt Donate to Accountant of Japan
Thou shalt donate to the account of Accountant of Japan. Thou hast no need to ask permission, may donate when you see fit, and doth be under no oblication to! If thee be of a mind to donate, much thanks in advance! Donations of any size be accepted.

04. Thou Shalt Not Beg
Thou shalt not constantly ask "When will I get my kimono?" Thou shalt be crucified by annoyed members. Greed shalt not be appreciated here. We want you to come here for the friends, the kimono or yukata is just a bonus.

05. Thou Shalt Follow Procedures for Addition to the Kimono List
Thou shalt post in Flowers of Japan and meet new people. After one week, you may PM Recruiter of Japan with thine username and kimono or yukata of interest. Any PM sent to Kenchan or Astellus reguarding admittance to the list shalt be ignored. Thou shalt read Recruiter of Japan's post if additional information doth be needed. Thou shalt not recieve a kimono or yukata simply because you donate a lot. Thou shalt recieve your kimono should you be worthy in our eyes. Should you be removed from the list, fear not! Likely we hath not seen you around the thread recently and removed you. You may PM Recruiter of Japan POLITELY to be re-added to the list.

06. Thou Shalt Display Good Manners
Thou be requested to be kind and courteous to the other members.

07. Thou Shalt Not Heavy RP
Thou shalt reserve all advanced roleplay for the FoJ guild. To elaborate, there are two kinds of role play that have sprung up on gaia; simple and complicated.
Simple role play is allowed in the FoJ, some examples of SIMPLE role play are the following:
~ *Takes the pot of tea from the burner and pours herself a glass before offering it to others*
~ *Walks into the FoJ and slumps on the couch, pulling a blanket over his head.*
~ Any form of "glomps, hugs, kisses, snuggles ect..."
Examples of COMPLICATED rp which is not allowed in the flowers of japan thread and is reserved for the thread in the guild is as follows:
~ *Picks up his sword, dusting the intricate lettering off before showing it to you.* "I'm Vah'an, seventh guardian of the realm of fire. I control the four elements and have a backstory the size of a mac truck, come, I shall sweep you off of your feet now."
~It also consists of any backstory your avatar may possess. Every person IRL has a backstory, that's fine, that's irl and is more than welcome to be discussed in the thread, but not every avatar needs to have a backstory, nor do we need to discuss it in the FoJ thread (again, that is what the guild is for).

08. Thou Shalt Have Fun
Thou shalt try to have fun and get to know our other members. Recieving a kimono or yukata doth be second to making friends here. We want people to stick around for the friends, even after they receive their kimono or yukata. The more active you doth be in the thread, the more likely you are to get a kimono or yukata.

09. Thou Shalt Spread the Word
Thou art requested to put a banner and possibly a link to our thread. This helps us draw more members and donations, meaning more kimonos and yukatas for thee.

10. Thou Shalt Worship Kenchan's Hair
Thou shalt purchase a lock of Kenchan's hair on eBay and place it upon an altar for worship as described in the Handbook for Shrine Madiens of the Church of Kenchan.

Old Rules of FoJ
How to get a kimono/yukata from this charity

Originally Written by DivineSaturn

1. No Bumping/Spamming
Please do not "bump" this thread. We do not need bumps, this thread bumps through conversation.

2. Limited Roleplaying
Please reserve all advanced roleplay for the FoJ guild. Keep roleplay in the thread simple. No developed storylines. Examples of good roleplaying are: "*takes the image for Vag to play with*" or "*flops in her hammock looking at a magazine*".

3. Donating
Please send all donations to Accountant of Japan. The more you donate, the more kimonos and yukatas we are able to give out to people we feel deserve them. However, the amount you donate is in no way related to how fast you'll get your kimono/yukata from us!

4. Spreading the Word
Please put one of our many banners, and possibly a link to our thread, in your signature. This will help attract more members, and possibly more donations. The more donations, the more kimonos and yukatas we are able to give out.

5. Have Fun!
Please try to have fun, and get to know our other members. Getting a kimono/yukata is second, making friends here is first. We want people to stick around for the friends, even after they receive their kimono/yukata. The more active you are in the thread, the more likely you are to get a kimono/yukata.

6. Attitude
Please be kind, and courteous to the other members. Constantly asking "When will I get my kimono?" is just annoying, and shows that you are here for one reason, greed. We want you to come here for the friends, the kimono/yukata is just a bonus.


Originally Written by DivineSaturn

1. Who do I ask to be put on the list?
Whoa, hold up there tiger! First, you have to start coming to the thread on your own, posting, meeting the people, and reading the rules posted above. In a week, if you still feel that this is the right place for you, please PM Recruiter of Japan with your username and the kimono/yukata you're questing for. Any PMs sent to Kenchan or Astellus reguarding admittance to the list will be deleted. For more information on getting on the list, check Recruiter of Japan's post here on the first page.

2. Can I donate? Who do I donate to?
Of course you can donate! Anytime you feel like it! You don't have to ask permission! Please send any donations to Accountant of Japan. And if you're planning on donating, thanks in advance! We appreciate donations of any size.

3. What is "bumping?"/What is a "bump?"
Lots of people ask this, so I figured I'd better just post it: a bump is a generally meaningless post, whose sole objective is to push, or bump, the topic to the top of the forum. Bumping is the act of posting multiple bumps.

4. What is an "evil bump?"
An evil bump is a pointless bump post- usually just containing the word "bump" or something similar. Evil bumps are not permitted here, and if you post one, expect to be yelled at by several angry FoJers. Why? Pointless, or "evil" bumps are spam, and it's hard to get anything important done when you're looking at a thousand bump posts. So if you want to bump, please converse with others. If you are alone, make something creative and non-bump. Furthermore, the punishment for evil bumping here is transformation into mouse, and then we will have the resident nekos and kitsunes chase you around. *smiles wickedly*

5. When will I recieve my kimono/yukata?
The list is currently in the order of donation, and is limited and temporary. Where you are on the list has nothing to do with who will recieve a kimono/yukata first. That all depends on you. Do you donate and chat frequently?

6. How do you decide who "deserves" a kimono?
A group of older FoJ members who will monitor your activeness, and general behavior. When a number of them agree you are deserving, we will decide if you get a kimono/yukata.

7. How often do you give out kimonos?/When is the next giveout?
We have funds in our bank as of now, but the giveaways of kimonos/yukatas depends on you. When we think you are deserving, we'll give you one.

8. Hey, my name used to be on the list! Where did it go?
The question is actually "Where did YOU go?" People who are inactive for a long time are removed from the list, so that we can make room for more, active people. You can be put back on, but it's not as easy the second time. So if you know you won't be able to come for awhile, please let us know in advance. If you were removed from the list by accident, please PM Recruiter of Japan NICELY. We all make mistakes, no reason to be rude. The same goes if you haven't been added, and were told you would be.

9. What happened to the old thread?
Reaching a nearly mind-boggling (for a charity) 7000 pages, the old thread was abandoned due to unrest among the members and the pending slew of updates for which we are waiting for now. With the implementation of new mules, we hope to be able to make updating the first page much easier in the future.

10. What happened to the old OLD thread?
The old OLD thread, while impressive in length, was becoming hard to maintain. So, just after we hit page 3000, we decided to make a new one. In this one, important staff members have posts on the front page, so that we can all moderate our own areas without colliding. The old thread will never be deleted though, at least not by us. It can be found farther down on the page.

11. Can I get a job here? Can I help out?
All job positions are currently filled as of now. Until positions open up, please don't ask. When we are looking for helpers, we'll say so in the first post, clearly. So please be patient with us.
Joining Rules

Originally Written by Grondax
1. Any PMs that just beg for a kimono, yukata, gold, or anything else will be completely ignored!

2. You can't request to be added to the list if you already have a kimono or yukata. This means you can't own one at the time you join. If I read your PM and you're wearing a kimono or yukata, you must think I'm retarded, and I will delete your PM promptly. You also forfeit your admittance to the list if you purchase your own kimono or yukata while waiting to get one from the foundation. It would also be nice if you could notify us, so we can remove your name from the list. This foundation was created to help needy people, not greedy people get kimonos and yukatas.

3. If I dislike your behavior in FoJ or elsewhere on Gaia I have the right to take you off the list at any time and refuse re-admittance. I will not tolerate: Meanness in general, especially to newbies who don't mean any harm, foul language when not appropriate (use only as an exclamation point), continued spamming of a thread, or just being annoying. More to come.

4. If you want to be added to the list, please post here and chat with out members for at least a week before you PM me. This means you post for 7 different days, NOT pop in one day, and return a week later to join. You likely won't be added to the list until I see you in FoJ for a while. After you have posted for a week, see rule 5. After I recieve your PM, you will be on probation. Our council of elders will be monitoring your activity. If you are inactive, and they don't see you posting, I will promptly delete your PM.

5. PM me asking to be admitted to the list, and which kimono/yukata you want. Please include the name of the kimono/yukata you want in the title of the PM, and use your manners! If you don't follow this rule, I will immediately delete your PM! Nobody needs a kimono/yukata. You may want one badly, but you won't die if you don't get one.

PM Title Examples:

I want a Royal Kimono - Wrong

I want to be added to the list - Wrong

I want to be added to the list for a royal kimono PLEASE - THIS is the one you want.

Kenchan does not like chain letters. Send any chain letters you get to
Shinobuchan and I'll cheerfully bash on anyone who sent it to you ^^

Kenchan does not like oversized sigs. Oversized sigs = big. Big = bad. Bad = you won't like Kenchan anymore ^^;;;

Spiffy keen. I get a posty. Now I have to figure out how I will use this space. With great power comes great responsibility, after all. My uncle Ben taught me that.

Can't we all just get along?
Personal Rant of the moment:

Wow, what is this, our fourth main thread? We've come a long way...I'd like to take this important time to invite you all to my ice cream parlor at the FoJ guild forums---*ducks tomatoes* Sorry! I promise I'll do something important with this post soon enough. 3nodding


Alright. After months and months, here's my "something important". I can't believe it's been nearly a YEAR that I've been part of this charity. I don't know how long I would have stayed on Gaia if it weren't for you wonderful people. You're the best charity in Gaia, and the best friends too! Keep on doing your thing, Flowers of Japan, you're the coolest charity there is!


heart Finally Gaia came up. rolleyes

This post is claimed for everyone who helped make FoJ what it is today- wonderful, loving, and fun. It's impossible to name everyone, but some people I especially want to remember are Grondax, Kenchan, Zero, Stellie, Auora-chan, VKM, Mokoni, E-san, Pet, Lorelei, Riven, DoS, Kitysa, Nny, AF, Huffie, Pyry, Rishi, Namek, Aya, Sylver... I could go on for days naming people, probably, without even starting on the donators.

You guys all rock. I never thought that the charity I started, in hopes of getting a few people kimonos would turn into somthing this wonderful, and I'm so proud of all of you. It's not just a charity. It's a family. It's something I never dreamed could happen, but it did, and the joy I get from that is inexpressable. heart

Thank you so much. I will remember everyone forever, since that's the kind of person I am, and hopefully you'll see more of me again soon.

Lots of love,
