I'm pretty much editing the same post from the LJ side for this one. If you read it there, you already know all of this.
We have a few rudimentary Community Rules
. Mostly, these are in place to head off any drama before it ever occurs (and happily that's never happened on the LJ side! Let's hope that tradition continues on DW!)
First, a bit of explanation, or Why Did We Bother?( Read more... )
On to the:Community Rules
1. Play nice. :) Follow the usual "courtesy" rules just like you would if we were all sitting together in somebody's living room.
2. We love tatting patterns and pictures of tatting, however: Please don't post copyrighted material. That means you can't post an entire pattern that you personally did not write (even if it's free, even if it's in an out-of-print magazine or book). It also means that you absolutely can
post excerpts from patterns if you're looking for help!
2a. Please feel free to post links to patterns you've found online! Especially if you're posting a picture of something you've tatted and want to share your source!
2b. If your pattern is from a book or magazine, please post any info you have about the source: title, author &/or publisher (if you have those), link to a place where the rest of us can buy our own copies, etc.
3. Please place large images behind a cut. See FAQ #88
for instructions on how to place a cut tag in your post.
4. Most importantly, have fun! :)

P.S.: If anybody has something they'd like to add, please mention it in a comment. I'm sure I probably missed something really obvious, and I'm relying on you members to point out my "duh!" moments. :)
