The Tudors 100 -- a Drabble Community
Community Rules

1. Keep it friendly, please. Drama can get you banned.

If you have an issue with another member, bring it to the mods -- don't get into a back-and-forth 'comment war.' The final decision about banning rests with the moderators -- and we really hate being pushed to ban members!

2. All drabbles need to be posted using a TEMPLATE. Feel free to use the following example:



NOTE: Your template should be posted outside an lj-cut tag. The actual drabble should be posted behind the lj-cut tag. We prefer the above template be posted OUTSIDE the lj-cut tag, as this allows readers to see in advance if the content might be objectionable (such as slash, character death, het, etc.).

Don't understand about the template? Please READ THIS KEY to the template example.

Want to gack (grab) this code? It's easy!

Right-click INSIDE the above box -- pick 'Select All.'

Right-click again and pick 'Copy.'

Go to your own document or blog -- right-click and pick 'Paste.'


Don't forget! 'Spoilers' is an important WARNING for this community.

Want to use your own template? Cool. Just make sure it contains the above info, please. Thanks!

3. Please use the lj-cut tag!

All content except for templates needs to go behind an lj-cut tag. YES, that includes fanfic banners, if you intend to include one. Thanks!

4. Linking to your own journal is fine, but please clearly state you're doing so.

Linked drabbles should not include fanfic/drabbles for other fandoms, please.

Don't know HOW to create the lj-cut tag? Here's the code:



Want to gack (grab) this code? It's easy!

Right-click INSIDE the above box -- pick 'Select All.'

Right-click again and pick 'Copy.'

Go to your own document or blog -- right-click and pick 'Paste.'


5. Avoid 'spoilers'!

What's a spoiler (or spoiling)?

It simply means that you've told details about an episode of the series, potentially spoiling it for others.

If you think you're sharing a drabble (or fanfic banner) that could be considered spoilers, PLEASE put these behind an lj-cut tag. We don't have much tolerance for spoiling and consider this a banning offense -- please don't make us ban you! (See rule #1.)

6. Use an appropriate subject line, PLEASE.

The subject line helps others (and you) be able to locate any given entry with greater ease. Try to use something that describes the content of your post.

An example would be:

Subject: DRABBLE: "Drabble Title" (Challenge #xx)

We all forget the subject line from time to time, so no worries! This certainly isn't a banning offense. But we might comment and suggest a subject line if you forget to include it -- so consider yourself warned about this possibility in advance.

7. We prefer to keep all entries here PUBLIC, so please don't lock/filter (friends only) your entry. Thanks!

Yes -- we will remind you if you forget.



  • Want to mention another LiveJournal member? To LINK to another LiveJournal user, use this code:



    Want to gack (grab) this code? It's easy!

    Right-click INSIDE the above box -- pick 'Select All.'

    Right-click again and pick 'Copy.'

    Go to your own document or blog -- right-click and pick 'Paste.'


    NOTE: Replace 'username' with the actual username of the LJ member.

    This is handy when referring to drabbles shared by another member, mentioning a member who has betaed your work, dedications, etc.

  • When sharing a link, we prefer you use a text-oriented link. The code would look like this:



    NOTE: Change the actual link to the URL you want to share. You can use whatever text you want where the text appears.

    Want to gack (grab) this code? It's easy!

    Right-click INSIDE the above box -- pick 'Select All.'

    Right-click again and pick 'Copy.'

    Go to your own document or blog -- right-click and pick 'Paste.'


  • Please don't change default FONT type and color used for this community when posting. Thanks! And please don't 'center' text. (Centering fanfic banners is fine, though!)
