Welcome to fatED elitists.
fatED elisits is a closed community dedicated to the elite eating disordered people of LJ who fall into the overweight range. Our tendencies tend to lean towards anorexia and bulimia tho COE and BED tend to play a part in our lives as well.
This community is built on possivtivy, negativity, and respect. Support and criticism go hand and hand. With me saying this, it does not give a person carte blanche to be rude and disrespectful. Respect is a big issue here. Everyone here is a person with emotions. Treat them as such.
There are many elite eating disorder communities on LJ at the moment. While the concept of someone suffering from anorexia and/or bulimia while still being overweight may be balked at by many in the world, the reality at hand is that often times, the fat are more "hardcore" than those fitting the DSM diagnosis criteria. This particular community relies heavily on that principle. We need a place of our own and this is the first elite community to be that place.
» Post your application and join AT THE SAME TIME. If you don't, you will not be allowed access.
» Respect the mods/members and you will receive respect.
» You MUST already have a pre-existing ED. This community isn't for those looking for a quick fix or for those recovering from anorexia or bulimia.
» For the sake of clarity, overweight means that your BMI is above 25. Anything below, even borderline 25, isn't overweight. I may grant access to those under this limit MAYBE, but it isn't likely.
» You must be at least 16 years old. NO ONE BELOW 16, period.
» We are not so elite that we are snobby. Apply even if you feel you may not be acepted. Chances are, if you fit the former 5 rules, you will granted access.
» Once given access, there isn't a limit to how many times you may post in a day, but use common sense. We all hate SPAM.
» Place all large posts, pictures, weight counters, etc. under a cut. If you don't, I will delete them. (I'm sorry.)
» Everything must be Friends Only. If not, it will be deleted. (To keep all things safe, you see.)
» Pleasedon't x-post. (Unless it's from your personal journal and even then, keep it to a minimum.) It's tacky and impersonal. If you are telling us and 23 of your other ED communities, you really don't care about being here.
» Refrain from using a font tag to change the color of your post. Honestly, it annoys me. That is really the only reason I can give you.
» Feel free to post ANYTHING - stats, writing, pics, etc.
» ABSOLUTELY NO NUDITY.
» DO NOT promote other communities. We are not a pimp service.
» Just try to stay active. I understand how things can get, but inactivty will not a good community make.
» For the question below asking if you get these rules, please type, "woot".
