about open-ness  

in my opinion, i think this community should be generally open, but have maybe stricter rules, just incase we are deluged with fangirls/boys. such as something like (i know this sounds silly) a quiz or something, to test if they're just joining for the helluvit, or if they have a genuine intrest (and are intelligiable enough to NoT TYpE lYkE thIS). i myself am not a terribly seasoned fan of FMA, but i'm not just posting random crap... i think the only entry i've ever actually posted in this community (other than this one) was the picture of my Al easter egg XD i suppose what i'm trying to say is, don't assume the worst about how the fandom will be distributed, and we can deal with it when we all know the full details ^^ sorry if this made little to no sense XD

What's needed is a set of rules for the fma commnities. take a look at the main getbackers community and you'll see in place a *lovely* set of rules which I've adopted for my kaleidostar community. Those are the best set of rules there. Also an active mod(s) who can put into the memories important posts and discussions and whatnot to avoid repetition. This comm just needs an overhaul in organization.

Yeah, the "no bashing" would be nice.

I've sort of been lurking this community since the last time it was featured on Fandom_Wank, and I don't think that people should be precluded from joining just because they found out about it later. Because, most likely, I'd end up on the wrong end of that if those rules were implemented.

If people are so worried about there being a flood of fangirls/boys, maybe there should be an adjunct comm for those who want to ignore the prospective flood.

Perhaps it should be called hagaren_elitist or fma_snobs...

Hear hear. Although I do like Hidaka's suggestion on taking a look at the rules on the GB comm about no posting Introductory Posts (posts that only introduce themselves). After a while all the "Hi! I'm so-and-so" blur together.

A fan is a fan is a fan. Whether they be a casual or hardcore fan, someone barely literate or an astounding novelist, everyone should be allowed in.

i could be wrong, despite i complete understanding to this topic, but wouldn't making rules and closing new membership make us... elitists?

::sigh:: what to do, what to do... i'm a hardcore naruto fan, so i am curious of what would happen when naruto also gets licensed... maybe a second fullmetal community should be created to split the fandom a little, or should that be left to the "noobs" and other new fans that come after closed membership?

Naruto has been locked. That means it cannot be licensed by anyone.

Lucky bitches. ;_;

I have no problem with a set of rules (something concerning spoilers might be niced, especially with the liscencing and all), but the community should be open to anybody who is interested. Afterall, if the fans are rude, that can turn some people off from the show, and I'm sure nobody here wants to discourage the watching/reading of FMA.
