BAKERSTREET RULES

Folks, we have a few simple rules here and the mods expect everyone to adhere to them. One of them is: Do not repost a meme that can be found on the first two pages of Bakerstreet, or that is less than a week old. Another one is: Please avoid using images that are too graphic or if you do place it under a cut with proper warnings.

Please do not post more than one meme a day using one journal / sock account (Added March 12, 2017)




Be aware of the rules, because if you - as a player - start rping in such a meme, you might lose your thread after the mods delete the whole thing.

We do not want to delete memes where you already play, because that is punishing you, not the person who broke the rules. They know this and intentionally go against the rules because 1) they want you to suffer from their stupidity and/or 2) if we don't delete the meme because we're being nice, they think they've outsmarted us. For the same reason, they do not reply to messages we send or have completely unabled PMs.

Rule for the memeposters: You need to be available to mods! This has been added to the profile page now.

So players, for your own sakes, do not indulge the rulebreakers.

Let's keep to a schedule for the popular memes:
* TFLN - Friday
* Smutty picture prompt meme - Sunday
* Gen texting meme - Sunday (Midnight Texting once/month, on the 3rd week, with other texting memes allowed for the other Sundays.)
These 3rd Sundays for 2017 are: Aug 20, Sept 17, Oct 15, Nov 19 and Dec 17.
* Sexting meme - Tuesday
* Picture prompt (integrated or not) - Thursday
* Classic Word Association meme - on 14-18th of each month


Having said that, posting any of these memes a day earlier or later is not something to report it as a problem. The important thing is to only post them once a week. That means a Sunday-Saturday timeframe.

Say there's been a lot of shipping memes and you want a gen Pic Prompt meme on a Wednesday. That's fine.


Comments are disabled in this particular post. I will allow comments. My first thought was to edit this later so that it would serve as an official Rules post and I didn't want to clutter it with anything else. However, I don't want to give the impression that I won't allow discussion on this topic.

Thanks! Yes, I am looking for ads to look at, not to post, but that first one you suggested should be very helpful! Thanks again! c:
