A guide to a successful, drama free fanclub in a simple guide
1) RESPECT EVERYONE REGARDLESSS OF RACE, GENDER IDENTITY, SEX, SEXUALITY o RELIGION
This one should be a given, it doesn't matter who tu are o what tu believe, respect other people, even if they contradict your beliefs
2) TRAUMA TRIGGERS
Trigger Warnings (or TW) is a phrase I picked up on tumblr, essentially it's so people can avoid posts using tumblr savior (which blocks posts if they contain a certain word) that they find traumatic. Now, keeping this in mind, tu CAN DRAW/WRITE/DO WHAT tu WANT, if tu want to post it, post it as a link listing all the possible triggers, as for posting them in artículos and foros posts, lista the triggers at the parte superior, arriba of the articulo and for questions, encuestas and videos, put it in the title. Now, tu shouldn't abuse these triggers, they aren't for something tu simply dislike, they are for something that UPSETS tu TO THE POINT OF EXTREME DISTRESS, these are things like phobias, rape, blood, gore, suicide, ect.
3) IT IS OKAY TO BE UPSET por SOMETHING
Believe it o not, it is okay to take offence to something! o not agree with something o whatever, but, don't be a dick about it. Politely mention that tu are offended por what someone has said, allow the other person to apologise and mover on, do not cause an argument. However, do not take it upon yourself to try and remove the thing publicado that causes offence, that is up to the original author, they may just make amendments, tu never know.
4) APOLOGISING IS A THING PEOPLE NEED TO DO
Apologies can go a long way! So, if tu have, intentionally o not, offended someone, apologise to them! Don't cause a scene, even if tu feel they are wrongly offended.
Extra note: Do not feel tu need to take something down, however. There's a difference between offence and dislike, tu make the final judgement. Again, tu can draw/write/do what tu want.
5) THINGS tu PROBABLY SHOULDN'T JOKE ABOUT
Also a lista for those of tu who don't quite know what's acceptable and what isn't
C. Racial Stereotypes
D. Gender Stereotypes
F. Mental illness
G. Any illness really
Extra note: Using slurs like nigger, retard o fag as an insult isn't a good idea either.
6) DON'T TAG YOUR HATE
Tagging one's hate refers to escritura o drawing something displaying a dislike for something and then posting it somewhere all about the thing tu dislike. The only thing you'll succeed in doing is making people upset. So just don't.
7) THIS SITE IS NOT MEANT TO BE 100% CHILD FRIENDLY
Whilst these are actually general tips for people of all ages, this site is not for children under 13. I suppose this falls under "People can do what they want". If tu are under 13 then I really don't think tu have a right to be shocked, really.
The website warned tu already when tu first joined, it's like clicking on a link after you've been warned of the trigger, really.
So yes, after spending a año travelling around the internet, I have brought tu wisdom from a much happier website called tumblr! :D
Of course, this is a guide
Meaning tu don't have to listen to it but it might help you.
