Welcome: Rules Post

September 26, 2012

MOD NOTE: These rules are more just general guidelines to improve organization, and infractions will likely only result in deletion if there is a personal attack, a warning is excluded, or the HTML is mangled.

General Rules

  • We have has zero tolerance towards prompts and comments containing personal attacks on other community users and private individuals, bullying, and hate speech. Signed in members who violate this rule will first receive a warning and their comments will be frozen/screened. The second violation will result in banning of that member from the community. Anon comments violating this rule will be deleted.
  • If your comment is deleted/screened/frozen and you don't know why, please PM a mod or make a comment in the Ask A Mod page.
  • Plagiarism will result in an immediate ban.
  • Prompt posts will close to new prompts at 1,000 comments.

  • Bashing

  • Keep your negative opinions on a pairing, a kink, RPF, etc to yourself or to your own journal. Bashing on the meme will not be tolerated.
  • Do not bash characters, pairings, or real people, whether individuals or groups, and whether they're connected with the Reservoir Dogs canon or not.
  • People and pairing bashing includes: name-calling, blatant stereotyping, "your kink is not ok", and statements intended to belittle a person, group, or idea.
  • People and pairing bashing does not include: honest, thoughtful discussion of sensitive issues; disagreeing politely about a point of fact; disagreeing politely about a point of opinion.
  • Report bashing to the mod(s). Please don't engage the poster.

  • Prompting Rules

  • One prompt per comment.
  • Please follow the correct format (see below).
  • Include trigger warnings in the subject line. For your reference: Required Warnings
  • If your prompt is missing something, such as a subject or a warning, repost it in it’s entirety. It is not enough to reply to your own comment with the missing information. The mods will delete the previous duplicate comment.
  • A prompt also needs to include a pairing, or if the prompter has no preference Other/Other, and some indication of the scenario or other story elements they would like included. Reason: Asking for a particular pairing alone does not constitute a prompt.

  • Reposting Old Prompts

    Reposting old prompts is allowed on the meme but please make sure to follow these guidelines:

  • Prompts can only be reposted from a previous round or earlier.
  • When reposting a prompt, make note of it in the subject line and include a link to the original prompt somewhere in the comment.
  • Always link to the original, even if you are reposting from another repost.
  • Authors can make a fill at the original prompt or at a repost; if they chose to post their fill at a repost, they should leave a comment on the original with a link to the fill.

  • Format of Prompts

  • Put [RPF] before RPF prompts. (e.g. [RPF] Harvey Keitel/Tim Roth)
  • For crossover prompts: "[Crossover], Reservoir Dogs Character(s)/Other Character(s), [Fandom]" (e.g. [Crossover], Mr Blonde/O-Ren Isii, [Kill Bill])
  • Anyone, everyone, no one? Use "Other" (e.g. Mr Pink/Other)
  • Put [GEN] before GEN prompts. (The default assumption is that there will be sexual content of some kind.)
  • Use appropriate warnings.

  • Fills

  • Warn for triggers.
  • Link to NSFW images/videos. Don't embed.
  • Please don't link to locked material. This includes locked communities, even in membership is open.
  • Fills may be posted anonymously or not.
  • Fills can be anything: fic, art, vid, fanmix, podfic, etc.
  • All prompts are open to fills at all times, even if they have been filled in the past or are being currently filled by someone else. Multiple fills are positively encouraged; if something appeals to you then do not be put off creating a new fill by the existence of a prior one.
  • To make sure that your newly posted fic is found and properly indexed, please post a comment to the current Completed Fills/WIP update post using the prescribed format. The fill list post is for fills only; if your fill is missing information (missing subjects are the most common) or if your html has an error it will be deleted. Repost such fills.

  • Please direct any questions to the Ask A Mod page! Thanks.
