This picture posting community is not just for goths, but for all those interested in the darker side of life. Anyone can post pictures. Your personal scanned, webcam, and digital images are welcome. You must read and follow the rules below before posting or commenting.
1--Do post lots of personal goth-inspired images, links to images & picture galleries, female and male pics, images of your artwork, your band, your room, your gothic pet, etc. 2--Do post a short intro upon joining or delurking - preferably with a pic 3--Do post, only with a pic and only once per project: goth/industrial related questions and announcements of new industrial/gothic projects, webpages, etc. 4--Do delete your own mistakes and edit/fix your own posts: broken links, red Xs, duplicate entries, etc. 5--Do check out the LiveJournal FAQ and help pages for answers to technical questions like how to post pics, use LJ-cut, edit/delete your posts, and create viewing filters.
6--Don't join or view this community if you are offended by artistic nudes or fetish images. 7--Don't view this community where not-work-safe (NWS) or not-children-safe (NCS) images are not appropriate.

*** Offending posts and comments will be deleted and offenders of above rules will be banned from the community. Report broken rules to the_tatyana.
*** This may seem like a lot of rules, but most of them are just common sense. Keep in mind that this community exists to showcase your gothy/dark/industrial pics and/or artwork. The rules are not set in stone, are subject to change, and exceptions might be made on a case by case basis.
*** Themes will be posted periodically by the Community Moderators. You don't have post on theme, but are encourged to do so at least once per theme.
*** Having the community on your Friends list does not automatically make you a member. If you're not a member (and just a watcher) you're unable to post or comment, and you're missing out on the "friends only" posts.
