like any usually-organized community, we have a set of rules. wah wah, they're faily easy to follow, so as long as you can read through this, you're fine (it'll also help to follow them, too).
(two.) pictures over 400x400 pixels or fanfiction must go under a cut. if you do not know how to perform an lj-cut, please refer to this helpful post.
(three.) as a follow-up of rule #2, fanfiction and fanart should be presented in the following formats:
we have no specific format for icons and wallpapers, but it'd be helpful to have a preview.
(four.) in the interest of organization, please, please tag your posts. here is a full list of tags, and you're most likely to find your post there. if for some reason you cannot, just leave the tags part blank, and we'll cover for you.
(five.) please respect fellow members. we're all in this as a team, and as a community, we're all alike. no drama shall take place here. there is a "three strikes" system along with this rule; if you show a pattern of blatantly harassing other members, you will be banned.
(six.) promotions to other communities are allowed, but please make it relevant. it has to either relate to demetri (be it a friend, a former boss, fellow actor, maybe even the fact that they're on comedy central) or the show. south park, for example, is on comedy central, but has nothing to do with demetri. so that should be given the boot.
(seven.) have an article about demetri? awesome. post that motherf#@ker. please remember to link back to the source if you are doing a copypasta.
for all other kinds of entertainment, please visit these communities. :D
