Hi, [community profile] house_wilson fans!

The comm has recently undergone a change in modship. I will now be your go-to person if you have any trouble or difficulties. A few things to note:

  • I have just instituted a tagging system. When posting, it would be helpful to other people when they're looking for things if you used the appropriate tags. Take a look at the sidebar on the left to see what's available. I can always make more tags if they're needed. Right now, we've got "fanac:" for type of fannish activity such as fic, art, vids, or icons. There's also wordcount, rating, or genre for your fic and art posts. In addition, I've added several "topic:" tags for discussion posts. If I've missed your favourite genre or topic, please let me know!

  • Please familiarize yourselves with the rules, which are posted in the comm info. Since we're in a new season, please pay particular attention to the comm's spoiler policy, which is that spoilers are STILL SPOILERY for ONE WEEK following the North American airing of an episode.

  • Please be aware that some comm members are multishippers; other pairings, characters, and actors can be discussed in this comm as they relate to House/Wilson, and without bashing.

  • If you have any difficulties with a topic, a comm member, or a discussion thread, please PM [personal profile] zulu with details and links so that situations can be dealt with.

  • If you have any suggestions for ways to make the comm more active and inviting, please pass those along too. More posts, suggestions, members, and so on are always welcome!

Firstly, this community has a new layout! It's House/Wilson themed, naturally. Check it.

Secondly, everyone knows that the only way onto DW is with an invite code. There are people who are itching for an invite code, and there may be some people who have an invite code or several to spare. So, maybe fellow House/Wilson fans might be willing to help others out.

If you have any invite codes you'd like to give away, please leave a comment to this post, stating how many codes you have/are willing to part with. First come first serve, so whoever responds to your comment with a request for an invite code gets said code. ONLY those with open ID accounts can request a code.

Thirdly, I am in the process of putting together a tag list. If you are a member of this community with a DW account and you'd like an author tag, please leave a comment to this post.

FOURTHLY, this will also be an introduction post. Some people have signed onto DW with a username that is different to their username on LJ. Introduce yourselves and tell everyone a bit about yourself!

Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

- Ticcy.

Hi! So, being the predictable person I am, one of the first things I checked after I set up my dreamwidth account was to see whether there was a House/Wilson community. There wasn't one, but there is now! I really don't expect this place to end up to be very busy, especially not while this whole site is still brand new. The main thing is that if everyone plays nicely, then it's all going to be fairly relaxed around here.

The general ground rules are on the comm's info page. I've customised the community's layout as best as possible for now. Dreamwidth only has extremely limited customisation tools at the moment. A banner and other such pretty things will come later, once those tools become available for free accounts.

So, just a few things to note!

1. Cutting long posts is essential. The same coding for cutting applies here as it does on LJ; go here to read about cuts if you're not sure how to do a cut.

2. Spoilers MUST be cut. There's going to be a one-week cutting rule here, where all topics surrounding new episodes must be put completely under a spoiler cut for the week following the airing of said episode. That includes icons, graphics, you name it. Lots of people who don't live in the States do download the episodes, but some people don't have the luxury of being able to do that (dial-up internet, for example, where downloading a 350MB file would take a lifetime). So, please, be courteous of others when it comes to spoilers.

3. The above rule includes fic, too. If there are spoilers in your fic, please label your fic with correct warnings. This also means not putting completely spoilery summaries in your labels.

4. I can't emphasise this enough: NO BASHING. No bashing of characters, of pairings, of actors, of other members. It's understandable people will have differing tastes, preferences and opinions, but bashing is in nothing but bad taste. If you don't like a character or a pairing or an actor (or a fellow community member), that's fine. But save the vitriol for your own webspace. If you honestly cannot participate in this open forum without leaving a goat pebble trail of bitterness no matter where you go, then I would strongly suggest opting out of participating altogether. People who repeatedly leave bitter goat pebble poop everywhere will be escorted out of the comm by the mod wielding a ban_set command. The same goes for anyone who decides spamming or trolling is fun.

5. A tagging system will be set up! Once those are in place, all members who post here will be expected to tag their entries accordingly.

6. Once more traffic gets flowing through here, episode discussions will be put up each week an episode airs. (Not that there'll be new episodes until Sept or something once this season ends, but hey.)

Most importantly, have fun. If you have any problems or questions, don't hesitate to contact [personal profile] ticcy, either through a PM or email (mod email is noted on the comm's info page).
