Pre-Season Updates!  
Hai thar, Chase/Cameron fans!

My fellow moderator enigma731  and I decided it was time we gave some updates and reinstated some rules now that the seventh season of House draws increasingly close.

First and foremost, the most obvious change, what was once a team of four moderators has slimmed down to a duo. We wish mae_vaughan and lynnonpointe  all the best both in fandom and offline for the future.

Admittedly, the community has hit a bit of a lull during the hiatus and with canon events not being well received for the most of our faction, understandably. However, we maintain that our ship is strong as ever, and are very excited to get a new season underway and hopefully continue and uplift participation in the community. With your contributions, we’re certain this season our faction can be thriving and faithful as ever.

So, here’s where you come in: what would you like to see in the chase_cameron  community this season? Is it ficathons, icon competitions, more frequent discussion? Don’t forget to participate in our weekly discussions for each episode – they can be a lot of fun and also quite therapeutic for those of us holding resentment against The Powers That Be!

We ask that, as always, this season remains one of civility to each other and everyone involved in the creation and cast of the show, as well as the rest of the fandom. In terms of fun in the community, we want you guys to feel free to share your thoughts, your creations, and really make this a great place to be. That said; let’s remember to stick to the following rules:

- All new entries are screened by the mods. Unless the entry breaks one of the rules, it will appear in the comm (and on your FLists) as soon as one of us approves it. Moderated Posting is simply a way to guarantee that the community runs smoothly and nothing offensive/off-topic gets through. It's for the good of us all.

- Do not disable or screen comments to your entries. Seriously. We will delete it and make you post it again with the proper comment settings if you break this one.

- TAG ALL ENTRIES. DO NOT MAKE US TAG FOR YOU. There is a list of tags along the side of the main community page, and they can also be found through a link on the community profile. If none of the current tags fit your post topic, please select the “tag needed” option and one of your beloved mods will swoop in and fix it up for you, no problem!

- No bashing of ANY actors, characters, other LJ users, or ship factions. Period. Furthermore, NO WANKING.

- Use your common sense. And your super-cool education. This means think before you post/comment, and always use proper grammar/punctuation to the best of your ability.

- ANY AND ALL spoilers, photos, videos, graphics and fanfictions must be put behind an LJ-cut. No exceptions. If you don't know what an LJ-cut is or now to create one, see here.

- Weekly episode discussion posts, community fanfic fest/ficathon announcements, and any other regularly-scheduled updates will be handled by the moderators only. It keeps things simpler and more consistent.

-Most importantly, have fun. Enjoy the ship. Enjoy the people in our faction, and remember that no matter what happens in canon there’s people devoted to the ship, and willing to keep the flame alive.

Thank you so much for your time, you guys, and please, please, please comment or PM either of your mods with any questions, concerns or suggestions. Don’t be shy! We don’t bite (much.)

PS – If you’re viewing this on your FList, click over to the comm NOW and check out the fantastic, deliciously angsty layout enigma731 has made for us. Thank you, fellow mod! 

Your Mod,

That layout is indeed quite brilliant.
Here's to hoping for some good news this season!

Here here! :)

And yes, enigma731 never fails to impress with her layout skillz!

Okay, so I never know whether here here should be spelled like that or hear hear. Because the former is like saying 'here is where we want that to happen' and the latter is like saying 'hear that? That's what should be so'. It has confused me for life. Especially because both are in common usage.

It's hear hear. =p I was responding to your "here's to..." ;)

I still have hope for CC. And they're still a beautiful beautiful ship ♥
