Mod post: spoiler policy & other stuff

Hi all!

It occurs to me that since hiatus is over, a reminder about our spoiler policy might be in order. If you are posting a story or a plot bunny or artwork of any kind that involves plot points from the most recent episode, you must put it behind a cut tag at least two weeks after the original US air date of the episode.

As a matter of courtesy, I would encourage everyone to keep anything to do with the current season under a cut, but that's not mandatory. It's just, as I said, a matter of being courteous to the ohsam members who live in other countries where the current season hasn't yet aired, or is airing on a delayed schedule.

On another note, we here at ohsam would like to remind you that we do have a strict policy when it comes to posting potentially triggery material. This goes double for fic challenges and comment-fic memes. So far, everyone has been very good about this, but it's a brand new year, so a refresher may be in order.

If you are posting something with subject matter that could be triggery for some (the list includes but is not limited to: sexual abuse, rape, self-harm, suicide, eating disorders/body image issues, abuse of any kind, death, and the majority of sexual kinks), then you must put it behind a cut if it's in a post, or if it's a prompt in a challenge or comment-fic meme, you must grey out your text and warn for it. We will provide the code to use in the rules of the challenges, so you don't need to worry about that. :)

In a similar vein, we the mods do try to keep an eye on everything that happens here, to make sure we keep the comm a safe place for everyone, but we're only human and sometimes things slip through the net. If you come across something that is triggery or otherwise inappropriate, PLEASE get in touch with us and provide us with a link to the problematic material, and we'll deal with it as soon as we possibly can. But you must provide a link, otherwise we might not be able to find it, which defeats the whole purpose.

Thanks for helping us to keep this place awesome!
