Welcome to FATTIE UNION.
THIS IS IMPORTANT: fattie_union IS NOT A SAFE SPACE.
While I understand that we all need to be respectful, I didn't create this community to exclude any possibly related topics. Anything that might bother other members MUST go under a cut, but it can still be discussed. If you think something might bother you, scroll along and don't read it. It's unfortunate, but we can't cater to everyone, nor should we have to police all entries.
(community rules are being made up as we go along. )
Fat and happy? You've come to the right place. Want to talk about how awesome it is to be curvy, hot, and fabulous? Also the right place. Want to snark the fatty-haters? BRING IT. WE LIVE FOR THAT SHIT!
Your mods are ayanamisama, jackie, so_says_ali and wings_unfurling. Any issues, bring it to us over at fattie_mods.
Community promos policy: Promos are OK as long as they are relavent to the community. Community promos that aren't related must be LJ-cut. Community promos for ratings communities are NOT allowed. We're all about building self-esteem here. Ratings communities are not. Any posts advertising ratings communities WILL be buhleeted.
Sales policy: If you want to post a link to your journal saying that you're selling clothes/shoes/books/ponies/fishsticks/whatever, that's completely fine. Just keep the actual sales out of the community. There can end up being a lot of drama with selling stuff online, and we don't want to be responsible for any wank concerning YOU selling YOUR STUFF.
Rules: For now, any posts concerning weight loss must be under a cut and have a mild subject line. This is to keep everyone comfortable and trigger-free. Feel free to talk about weight loss in a healthy way (hey, a lot of us do it for all kinds of reasons, some of which DO NOT have to do with body image), just keep it cut.
Troublemakers: If you're doing something stupid, you'll only get one warning from a mod. Anything after that, and it's BANNINATION TIME. Think twice before saying something inflammatory. If anyone is causing trouble, please let ayanamisama, jackie, so_says_ali, and wings_unfurling know immediately.
ALL TROLLS WILL BE BANNED IMMEDIATELY. No warnings. I wouldn't even try it. At least one of the mods is on LJ at any given time (generally), and we'll catch you. So suck it.
WE ARE NOT AFRAID TO USE IT.
