Let's try to support Shirota as much as we can, that means through any forms, like buying his merchandise or commenting on his blogs, even in fan fiction, fan art, media posts etc.
The community encourages posting, but for everyone's well being, there are a few rules that we would like all the members to be aware of.
Unfortunately posts or comments that do not follow these rules will be subjected to deletion.
Please do not post introductory entries as the community is not a chat board; however, if you really want to post an introductory entry then please provide a little something more with your post, like a news blurb on Shirota or new scans of Shirota.
All media-related posts must be friend-locked please. Examples of media posts would be posts containing scans, downloads of mp3s, songs, DVDs, music videos, clips, etc. Basically, any post containing media needs to be friend-locked.
Icon posts must have at least one icon to do with Shirota and they do not need to be friend-locked; Icon posts should always have a maximum of three icons and the rest under an LJ-cut or a fake LJ-cut. Icon posts that do not follow this rule will be deleted.
Please post all high resolution images of Shirota under an lj-cut. If posting personal pictures of Shirota, either from his personal blog, other D-Boys' blogs or your experience at a D-Boys event, to keep your entry friends-locked. And it's especially important that if you're going to post a picture that Shirota has posted on his own blog, to upload that picture onto your own hosting service like Photobucket or Imageshack. Read here to learn how to make an LJ-cut.
When posting fanart or fanfic, please label the content of what you are posting. This means if it is yaoi [boyxboy], yuri [girlxgirl] or het [boyxgirl]. This is common courtesy to fellow fans. Please also label the rating of what you have drawn/written, as in PG, PG-13, NC-17, etc. We're open to any and every shipping of Shirota's, so please don't feel afraid to post your work!
When requesting media, please first look through the community's tags, memories and recent entries before making your request. All posts requesting media must be friend-locked! Feel free to ask questions about Shirota and hopefully members will be able to answer your questions.
As always, when downloading media content from the community, remember that as fans, it's our duty to support Shirota and that means, if we love what we hear or see, you can find the master list here of where to buy all his merchandise. Please check recent posts, tags and memories before making your request, it'd save the community a lot of redundant posts.
Advertising merchandise you're selling or auctioning at the community is always welcomed, as long as they're Shirota related. Buyers, please be aware that Sellers have the right to charge whatever price they want. If you think the price is too high, then please just ignore the post, don't start criticizing the Seller. You can always ask the Seller kindly to reconsider if the price really doesn't fit your budget. Otherwise, don't start a flame war over pricing!
Tagging entries is not necessary, but would be helpful for the community. If you're not too sure what to tag your entry as, that's ok, the moderators will edit your tags after you've posted your entry.
As Shirota will star in more and more movies or tv shows, we request that for those who have seen his movie or tv show and would like to post summaries or their opinions on the movies/tv shows, to put spoilers indicators on their entries to warn fans, who have not been as fortunate to have seen the movie/tv show beforehand.
When commenting, please be nice, polite and respectful to Shirota and all members, commenters and posters. It's a fan community, we want everyone to have fun. NO FLAME WARS!
