These rules are the same on every site you can find me on with very few alterations.
(I'm hardly on this one but rules still apply.) The Mystery-Shack Forum
Please do not list me in the friends widget* or as a friend anywhere here (or on any site you might find me on for that matter). I am only friends with people I know personally. I am not against making friends but don't except it to happen at the click of a button. It will take understanding and acceptance from both sides for it to happen and work out. But most importantly, it will take time to earn my full respect and trust, which is not at all easily done. I need to do the same with you too. Friendships are a two way street. And just to be clear, earning my respect is not the some as earning my trust.
*How to watch me but not have me listed as a friend until we can both decide it will work out:
After you click the watch button on my page click it again. There will be a pop up and you will see a part that say "Relationship". Please uncheck the box in there right next to "Friends". Than you just save the changes and done. See? Simple.
I highly appreciate feedback so if you can give it please do so. I grow on my own mostly but will admit there are much more talented people here who have been here longer and have some great pointers that can help me to grow. You don't have to always comment, but doing so occasionally, especially if it is constructive feedback, would be greatly appreciated loves.
If I put the icon in a deviation's description there's a reason for it and I suggest that you do as it says.
(BTW can someone please make a stamp that says "THE DESCRIPTION EXISTS FOR A REASON"?)
Don't be afraid to be honest with your opinion. All I ask is for you to remember it is an opinion and not everyone will agree. Also please don't force your viewpoints on others or attack anyone for their's.
No self advertising on my page or my works please! (Seriously this is beyond annoying.)
I make an effort to be nice and friendly to those who leave a comment on my works and my journals, but if you're someone who continues being rude and cruel to me and others, then we're gonna have a problem. You come after me or any of my friends, expect retaliation. You threaten me or any of my friends, expect to get challenged. I don't care if it's on your page or mine or anywhere else. So if you have a problem with me take it up with me in a note - and keep it between us. I can and will bite you back if necessary. You get one warning and than a block if it continues. You're dealing with a pit-bull here.
Oh and yes I will report you too especially if you dare to pull a death threat!
and can also get you blocked. Don't think I won't find out.
Thankfully, all that doesn't happen very much. Just be warned I am serious when I say that if you can't respect my rules/my desires/my wishes I can and will remove myself from your watch. I may not like blocking people but I will still do it if it is necessary. The block will usually be temporary (may take a few years) - unless you've put in some serious work to get on my bad side.
I'm starting to get tired of having to constantly ask people not to list me as a friend on their profile. Especially since this information has been on my profile for a while now - like the entire time I've been here. These rules stem from my experience both online and in the real world. I once had some of these on my profile but decide it may be best to make this journal and put a link to it at the top of my page and in my signature so that it will be seen. My profile still has lots of information that you should still read if your interesting in learning more about me, but this is the important stuff that new (and maybe even some old) watchers should know.
Thanks to each of you for the watches , favs , comments , and support .
You really are such loves.
Madness is Amazingness!
