On friending: (sticky post)  
A quick heads up for anyone friending me:

One: I post a lot of random things. Everything I post is done by custom groups, so if there's something you don't want to have clogging up your f-list (i.e. memes or secret posts.) comment to this post and let me know. I'll remove you from that group~

Edit: The above is not so much true anymore, but feel free to comment that entry regardless, in case I pick the habit up again in the future.

Two: I'm a lurker by nature, so if you only keep people on your f-list who comment frequently, I'm probably not a wise choice

When friending me, please comment here with two colors from the Friend Add page, for me to add you with.
First color will be the username, second color the background - i.e. yellow on  black - if I can pull that off without going blind.

If you don't respond with two colors I will be slow to add you back.

Four: On de-friending, please leave a comment here letting me know (preferably with why) if you remove me. No hard feelings, I like to just be aware of what's going on, and if the remove was intentional or accidental.
It would just be really helpful, okay~? <3

Five: Last, because it is particularly important this matter stands out and is remembered. I value honesty, trust and respect above all else.

If you feel the need to snoop around behind my back, instead of coming to me and talking about a concern.
If you feel that you can manipulate me or that you need to corner me for any reason.
If you can't respect me as a person, and trust me as a friend enough to communicate with me.
If you feel that you have the right to order me around because you're not happy with something that I've said.

If any or all of these apply to you... Please refrain from wasting your time, and mine, in advance by not adding me to your f-list.

Thank you.

Additional matters:

Please comment to the birthday post, with your birthday (year not required.)
Also, if anyone has any questions about why your comments are screened, please take a look at this
or this.

... Why do you do the comment screening, anyway, Ed?
and I can do whatever I want, like you.: hm?icarusxelric on September 1st, 2008 01:45 am (UTC)
To avoid people seeing hurtful things that are posted about them, mostly.

When I started doing it, it was because my two best friends hated each other, so if one saw the other's comment (regardless of the topic) they'd refuse to comment, themself.

So, if they can't see those comments... They won't have a reason to not comment, themself.

Ah... That actually makes a lot of sense. Thank you.
