Hi! Welcome to [community profile] transgender, community for anyone under the trans* umbrella and their friends, families, and allies.

A few rules to start us off:
1 - Be respectful. I'm not going to ban specific words because I think you all deserve to be treated like adults. However, I will not hesitate to pull out the ban hammer on people who repeatedly (read: more than three times) use personal attacks. I reserve the right to skip the three strikes rule for people who insist on trolling or are blatantly hateful.

2 - Stay on topic. I don't moderate postings for the same reason I don't ban words. It's easy enough to keep on topic so just do us all a favour and don't post about your new puppy (even if I do love puppies). If something is off topic I *will* delete it without warning.

3 - No community advertisements. At least not yet. If you'd like to e-mail me and ask for permission to post an advert for a related community go ahead, I just want to avoid the 50 million cross-posts for yet another GLBTQIAA group.

4 - No explicit content. I want this community to stay all-ages, in order to do that it needs to be kept clean.

5 - Please write in prose format. A bit arbitrary, I know. It's just so much easier to understand what you're saying when you use prose.

6 - Use a cut tag. All pictures and long posts need to go behind a cut. I'm going to let you use your judgment for what's considered long, if I have to make a set rule I will.

7 - Be respectful. Repeating this one simply because it's the cornerstone of the community.

Mod Note: I haven't posted a link list because so far there's only been one suggestion and I'd like it to be a community-wide effort. I tend to focus on FtM sites, if I wrote it there'd be nothing for the genderqueer/other gendered/mtf/whatever I'm leaving out people.

I'll be making the info page some time tonight, if anyone has anything they want on there go and see this post.

Hi all,

I'm sorry I haven't gotten to posting here or making the userinfo just yet, life got a bit more hectic than I was expecting. I just wanted to make sure you all knew I wasn't abandoning you or anything so...hi!

Does anyone have any suggestions for the info page? Link suggestions, wording you'd like to avoid? Any particular concerns you have about rules? I tend to make things up on the fly so if you want your voice heard it's probably a good idea to do so now. I won't be working on the profile until Sunday when I finally get a day off, all suggestions made before then will be taken into account.

I do have to warn you that I'm not going to include language specific bans. I think the context of words is important and I'd prefer that new members not get flustered by not knowing which word to use. If I have to make specific contexts banned later (ie: you cannot use gay as an all purpose insult) I will, but for now I'm going to assume that you all know how to behave.
