1. TW Gifs & Macros 2. Funny picspams (sideburns optional), lulzy icons, etc. 3. Rewatch/Recap posts of S1, S2, S3, and eventually S4 episodes 4. Squee-posts for S4 news 5. Friending memes & spontaneous friending 6. Funny videos 7. Crackfic 8. John Barrowman's middle of the night twitter sessions (AND THE TIME HE TOTALLY SENT YOU AN @REPLY OMG!!!) 9. Good-natured ribbing of TW, RTD, and the cast. 10. Anything you can justifiably WRITE ABOUT IN CAPSLOCK
WHAT THIS COMMUNITY IS NOT FOR:
1. Part 57/? of your H/C Janto WIP where Ianto is a vampyre This is, for the most part, not a fanfic community. We suggest: torchwood_fic, torchwoodslash, and jantosparkle. 2. Sour grapes Leave your grudges with cast, crew, characters, and especially other fans at the door. 3. Haters If you find yourself unable to resist the urge to comment with "I hope this show crashes and burns.", there are other communities more suited to your needs. We all need to get our hate on occasionally, but Gleeclub isn't the place for it. 4. Srs business (okay some) Serious discussion isn't banned by any means, but if the idea of capslock and gifs in response to your well-thought-out six paragraph meta (with footnotes, you delightful nerd, you!) is annoying/offensive to you, you may be better off posting on torch_wood where discussion may veer more towards the cerebral.
1. You do not talk about Weevil Fight Club. 2. YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT WEEVIL FIGHT CLUB. 3. No whining. 4. No trolling or encouraging trolling. 5. No bashing characters/creators/actors/other fans.
GUIDE TO POSTING:
Anyone can post! Here's the basics: 1. If it's Torchwood related and follows the "What this community is for/not for" headings above, you're golden. Posting is moderated to screen out spam and unwarned spoilers, not for "quality control". If your post is rejected, you will always receive a reason why! 2. We accept posts about ALL SERIES of Torchwood. Feel free to squee about your love of "Random Shoes" here! Posts about S4 should follow our SPOILER POLICY. 3. Please make sure your post includes a SUBJECT LINE and is TAGGED APPROPRIATELY. 4. You may want to turn off comment notifications. One spontaneous Barrowman love thread and you've got a full inbox, just sayin'. 5. We allow Torchwood/Doctor Who-related advertisements, but please PM A MOD FIRST. 6. Don't spam. We're excited about what you have to share with the club, seriously, but if you have more than two things you want to post in a 24 hour period, consolidate them. Everybody's flists will thank you.
GUIDE TO COMMENTING:
THIS IS A SQUEE COMMUNITY. You are free to express reservations about S4, but if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all. If you don't intend on watching S4, you are welcome to still participate in the comm, just keep to posts/topics that you can squee about. (Or make S1/S2-themed squee posts of your own!) You have a right to your opinions. You do not have the right to outright ignore the purpose of the community. Don't insult actors, writers, or other fans. Don't be a bigot: Racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/ableist/sizeist, etc. comments of any kind are NEVER OKAY. DON'T FUCKING DO IT. You wouldn't like heddychaa when she's angry.
Off-topic or inappropriate comments will be frozen or screened at mod's discretion. Repeat/egregious offenders may be banned with or without warning. Trolling attempts will be spammed with Ianto Eye Roll gifs.
WHEN IN DOUBT, POST MOAR GIFS.
WATCH MIRACLE DAY WITH GLEECLUB:
Friday nights, join us for the Starz Watchalong and discuss the ep in real-time Saturday mornings, leave links, comments/questions for discussion, and reviews re: the latest ep on the Reaction/Roundup Discussion Post Thursdays, discuss the new episodes on the BBC airing schedule and talk differences between the US and UK broadcasts on the BBC Reaction Post During airings, there is sometimes a livechat going on at our Gwen's Boots chatroom. Come join us for spontaneous rewatches of Classic Torchwood and occasional drinking games!
PM ONE OF US IF THERE IS TOMFOOLERY (OR RULE-BREAKING) AFOOT. This comm can get upwards of 600 comments in a couple of days so it's not safe to assume that we will see offensive/off-topic shit on our own.
