how to join
the requirements to join celeb are fairly simple, all we're looking for is:
  • a username that is any variation of the name of the celebrity you're choosing to play
  • an icon of the celebrity uploaded
  • both a friends only post and a screened post (you can friends lock these once you've been added!)
  • examples consisting of at least two entries - scene examples are optional

    wire and telegram messengers are not mandatory but are encouraged in order to form stronger bonds with other members. please do not hide your userinfo with noembed as we will need to verify your friends list and journal are being updated. if your friends list is hidden when applying we will reject you and if you hide your userinfo after joining it is grounds for an override.
  • your chosen celebrity must be 18 years of age or older if you plan to apply as them. as of now, influencers and other non-traditional celebrities will be accepted on a case by case basis after review, it's nothing personal.

    important: upon applying please make sure anons are disabled in your comment settings. once you have been accepted into the community, we encourage you to change your comment settings so that only members of the community can comment you!

    we do intros a little different here:
    instead of posting a typical intro, you may make an entry in either musical or gab within a week of joining! if you fail to post within the week, you will be removed. if your intro meets the requirements, it will count as your first post toward earning an opt out.

     activity expectations
    updates are required every 3 weeks and we have a few ways you can update:
  • an update of your choosing, consisting of at least 200 words
  • an opt out - these are earned when you post in musical or gab two to three times within the three weeks between your updates. to meet the requirements, all initial comments must be answered in at least one of these posts, and the majority of the comments must be answered in the others. opt-outs may be used twice in a row. comments can be disabled on these posts! note: posts advertising group activites do not count towards an opt-out.
  • update passes - update passes are earned by accumulating points. after reaching 100 points, you will be rewarded 1 update pass. to see how the point system works, please head over to the points journal! note: we do not allow comments to be disabled on any passes, including birthday passes!
  • update themed topic - a bi-monthly update theme/topic will be posted with every set of adds. you may post a movie list, playlist, or a normal update pertaining to the chosen theme/topic

    note: to be mindful of others, we ask that you please keep your un-cut gifs/pics to 3 or less, thank you!

  • in addition to updating your journal, we will also require members to show us other forms of activity to avoid removal or being overridden. these include:
  • an updated friends list
  • the majority of comments responded to on your most recent update
  • friends page activity
  • wire and telegram are optional, so we do not base your usage of these apps towards your activity. if you have any questions regarding the update or activity rules, please ask us!

     hiatuses & extensions
    extensions are granted based on your activity, meaning if we haven't seen any activity from you within the past 3 weeks before your update, we will not grant your extension. since the community is so large, if we aren't sure of your activity we will ask you to provide us with proof before we grant it. please do not take this personal, sometimes it is hard for us to keep track of everyone.

    hiatuses will be granted up to one month, unless there are extenuating circumstances. if we feel that the hiatus system is being abused, we reserve the right to deny your request for one.

    before applying to override, please make sure you verify with us via the dropbox to make sure the person is actually available to override. people may appear to be inactive, but may also be on hiatus, on an extension, or have communicated with us in regards to their activity. again, since wire and telegram are optional and we do not judge activity based on them, we will only base activity on the friends page.

    how to tell if someone may be up for override:
  • their friends list is outdated by 2 weeks or more
  • the majority of their comments are unanswered on their last update
  • they haven't shown any friends page activity, posting or commenting others
  • note: members have one week to respond to comments on any post they make. the deadline for updates and intros is 8pm EST on the date they are due.

    before approving an override, we will look at the activity of the member in question before the deadline. if someone applies to override you and it was approved by us, showing activity afterwards will not negate the override. if you have a question about overrides, please let us know!

    we have a no tolerance policy for the harassment of our members. we want to provide a safe environment for everyone to interact and have fun, so if you are being harassed ic or ooc by another member do not hesitate to contact us in our dropbox or by pm. you must contact us with your member journal and not an anonymous one. once we've reviewed the situation, we will make a decision on whether or not there is any action we can take to resolve the issue. if you're not sure whether something is harassment but someone is doing something that makes you uncomfortable, or if you need help with anything, we are always here to do our best to help you!

    if you're being bothered by anonymous commenters in your journal, go to your comment settings and enable commenting from registered users only.

    we as mods would like to be as transparent as we can with our members. we will not be around much during non-add days (tuesday, thursday, saturday, and sunday) unless there is an important question or something that needs to be replied to right away. for example: an extension that we need activity shown before approval, a mod will be around at some point in the day to respond. if you put in for an extension or hiatus and we haven't replied, don't panic! it will be granted the next add day and you will not be overridden.
