Hello, and welcome to The Florinese, A Princess Bride rating community. This is all fairly self-explanitory, I hope. You fill in the application survey (below), you post it with a couple of pictures, then you vote on the other applications. Meanwhile, we vote on you and decide which character you're most like. Then we stamp you. And everyone rejoices.
So, without further ado, the rules are:
~Be nice. Don't make negative or hurtful comments, criticize other members, etc. If you do, I will fight you to the pain, and, as I am clearly a sword-fighting wizard, I will surely win :o)
~*New Members*~ ~We respect lj policies. You must be at least 13 to apply. ~Please put your application behind an lj-cut. It just makes everyone happier. Check the FAQ if you are unsure of how to do lj-cuts. ~We will be even HAPPIER if you bold your questions. ~Please, I am not going to be a spelling and grammar Nazi, but take enough pride in your application to make it legible so we can all understand it. ~Once this community takes off, you will have three days to garner votes before being stamped. But it might have to be a little longer at first. ~Because there are so few female characters, cross-gender stamping is allowed. ~You can include whatever other photos you like, but please include at least one where you look as you normally would on any given day. ~Please put the phrase "Anybody want a peanut?" in the subject line of your application so we know you've read the rules.
~*Stamped Members*~ ~PLEASE, continue to vote after you have been stamped. We want to be able to give new members enough votes to reach a good concensus. ~You can vote for up to two characters for each person. If you explain why you voted that might make it a little more interesting, especially for the person being analyzed. And please, please, if you remember, bold your votes so they are easier to find. ~Please put "Stamped" in the subject of any subsequent posts so we don't vote on you again by mistake :o)
