Hello! If you have come here from Facebook then that must mean you are serious about joining the Blythe group! Here are the rules you are looking for:
First off: If you do not answer the Approval Questions you will not get approval to join the group. Answering should be easy at the questions are super easy! If you do not answer in English I will not approve you (it is an English speaking group)
Here are the questions, followed by the rules.
- What rules should your sales post follow? Please list at least 3 rules.
- Who is your favourite Blythe Artist?
- What is your favourite Blythe clothing item? Be specific! I love to know!
That’s all!! So here are the rules;
So with our group getting bigger all the time I figured it was time I post the way our group works. Read this if you are new, and it doesn’t hurt to skim it for a refresher if you have been here since the beginning :) as I have added some new things.
WELCOME! Welcome to the OPEN group where all opinions and beliefs are welcome. Post what you want, when you want. Please don’t be mean and no calling out, but be honest. Be you straight, gay, religious or robot you are welcome in a place run by an experienced and mature adult.
First off: I misspelled “Dolly’s” on purpose. It’s supposed to represent them as a people. hehe Plus, it fit better in the title space.
-This group runs on EST (Eastern Standard Time)
-ALL posts must be in ENGLISH.
-ENGLISH MUST BE POSTED FIRST, your own language(s) may follow.
-DO NO use your posts as advertising for your shop, tp post multiple items, to post about your online store stock etc..
-NO MORE THAN ONE POST PER ITEM. Do NOT spam with mulitple posts.
-All information MUST be in your post. No just adding a link, provide ALL info AND include links to where to buy it (for example if you are selling on Etsy) Posts that do not contain all the information so people do not have to leave the site WILL BE DELETED.
-DO NOT be spammy in general.
-DELETE your posts when they sell. I will delete any member who does not abide by this if I find I have to continuously delete your posts. You get a chance but then you’re gone.
The reason I delete you after a chance: I always contact the offender first in the comment section of the post. The second offence is a polite facebook email and if the problem persists all your posts are deleted and you are removed from the group. You’re all grown-ups. It’s easy to follow the rules like everyone else :)
-I am sorry to do this, but to lessen the odds of having asshole people join our group just to post spam -like sunglasses and cheap ass running shoes- new recruits to our group MUST HAVE one or more of the following in their FB profile: -Dolly pictures and/or Dolly friends
-Swearing is allowed.
-Dolly nudes are allowed.
-NO NEWBORNS (see below)
Please also note that this group is OPEN. It’s not just about dolls either, but the people who love them so feel free to share aspects of your own life. One of the reasons we are an open group is to maintain a public presence that is both acceptable to all and maintainable in that people will think twice about what they post. Hopefully :) If people are more aware that what they say and do is there for all to see, there is less of a chance of inappropriate behaviour and comments.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE. If something IS deleted or if you find you want to delete something and cannot, PLEASE DO NOT PM me with a rash email yelling at me. I would really appreciate that. Because unless you broke a rule, it is almost ALWAYS a Facebook bug. I can’t stress this enough. Facebook is really, really buggy. It always has been and probably always will be, but that is something I could go on about forever another day :) So BREATHE, wait, and check back in a few hours. If there is still a problem I will help you. You are incredibly important to me and I want ALL of you to always be happy and comfortable in this group. IF I DELETED YOUR POST you will have already had notifications and a msg from me, UNLESS you blow in here and immediately just start breaking the rules, which hasn’t happened yet (as of Feb 2018!)
A word about ALL dolls: A LOT of people don’t realize that this site is not just for Blythe. Sure, Blythe is our ‘jumping pad’ but in the end this forum is for people who share a passion. Please know that we would all like to see what you would like to share. Be it your dollies, your doll houses, your doll clothes, your day, your kids, your work, give-aways… This site is about the PEOPLE behind the dolls first and foremost. :) So please note that all dolls are accepted and all pictures of dolls are accepted.
**EXCEPTION!!!!!! No newborns. The reason for this, the newborns are already a whole world on its own and there are PLENTY or resources out there for this type of doll. So NO NEWBORNS.
There are a lot of fun things that happen in this group. To keep in touch with some of the regular things I have created files explaining as much as I can. PLEASE read these. I really don’t want to explain over and over :) It would be really helpful for me and for others to not have to keep explaining things over and over :) To do this, go to the top menu and choose FILES. There you can read all about the QOD, our weekly give-aways, find patterns and PDF’s, funny places to write funny stories, rules and more.
UPDATE: People lost interest in participating but we USED to do a lot of fun stuff. I’m always up for organizing anything if you have an idea so please share!
Now, a word about all the EVIL, GOSSIPY sites out there: I don’t mind you guys talking about them and expressing how you feel (not at all!), but please don’t post links to them in here. I have a dream to keep this site as positive and happy as possible. Adding links to ‘those sites’ keeps them alive and strong, gives them the popularity they are looking for and also adds to their visitors count, which in turn keeps the cycle going. Some people think there is some positivity in those sites but in reality, there is not. It is a sad truth. The negativity just breeds and breeds. I am really against those kinds of sites and I think, as a community, we should all be. The best way to keep those kind of places out of this world is easy: Just IGNORE and AVOID. I hope you understand!!
Please note though, that I know people need to talk about this sort of thing. To vent and cry and get support. PLEASE feel free to do that here. If it starts to get out of hand I will deal with it as it arrives, and explain my actions.
So post what you want, show us your pictures of whatever you want and lastly, please have fun!
PM me or comment below if there is anything you would like to add or question.THANK YOU my lovlies!!
UPDATE!!!I keep getting requests from people who have 0 friends, no pictures, no dollies in their photos and all their likes are for swaps and other weird stuff. If you are NOT into dolls, please just go away and leave this group for us who are. You don’t have to own any, but at least have an interest. THANK YOU!!XOXOX
