welcome!
Hello! You've stumbled upon animationstamps, a rating comm dedicated to Western Animation, as well as animation from other countries. ♥ What is a rating comm, you ask? It is a place where you apply to determine which characters or other things you are similar to in a given context (in this case, animation!).

While we will have the occasional Japanese animation collaboration with creative teams from other countries, we ask that you check out our sister comm animangarate for the rest of your anime rating comm needs!

As this is a general rating comm, we will have themes for various animated series and films...however, we will only have one regular application for all of those themes as there are far too many animation titles to have specific applications for each individual theme and to do just a general overall character rating. So, basically, you can apply for the themes for series or films that you like! We will also do special, more general themes from time-to-time...just to add something different every once in awhile. Anyways, we hope you all enjoy your stay here at animationstamps! XD

rules.
1. You must be a member to apply for any of the themes here!
2. Applications will be placed into a queue, so don't panic if yours doesn't show up the second after you post it! We will try to only release a small amount of applications at a time, but if you think your application has gotten eaten in the queue (since that's been known to happen, lolz!), just let us know and we'll be sure to get back to you ASAP to let you know if it is still there or not. If that *does* end up happening, exceptions to the rules will be allowed.
3. BE NICE & NO DRAMA! Rating comms are meant to be fun, so wank and drama will not be tolerated here! If we see it, you will be warned once and then banned if the behavior persists. Rating comms work when members are respectful of one another!
>> With that in mind, use common sense when voting! Take a moment to think about a comment before posting. Don't word your votes in such a way that it would be insulting to others (examples: "I'm voting {X} because you annoy me like they do."). A lot of misinterpretations about votes can be avoided if you think about how you personally would want a vote worded if someone were voting on you.
>> It is okay to disagree with other voters, but keep in mind that there are ways to word a disagreement respectfully (for example, using all caps in a disagreement can be disrespectful or implying that another voter is dumb for voting a certain way is NOT respectful and probably will result in a warning).
4. Be sure to BOLD your votes since that makes it easier for all involved! You're allowed to double-vote if you think there are two fitting options for someone, but don't do more than that. NO SHEEP VOTING. Please try to explain your votes! You don't have to do an epic explanation, but just 3 or 4 sentences behind a vote will at least show that you put some thought into it and let the applicant see where the vote is coming from.
5. Screened comments/votes ARE allowed for the themes that have six or fewer character options, but try to avoid doing that for any themes with more options (as it will take a much longer time for you to reach a majority!).
6. All themes will be open once posted, so if you "miss" one you can always come back for it! We provide character lists and descriptions for every theme, and we will provide a post so you can easily access all of them.
7. You must vote on ALL UNSTAMPED APPLICATIONS before posting your own. Rating comms do run on votes, so it is only fair if you want to be stamped that you should help other members get closer to being stamped too! As mentioned before, we will provide descriptions for characters...so "I'm not familiar with this theme!" is not a valid excuse for not voting.
8. Be sure to title your post with the name of the theme you're applying for to make things easier on voters...and to tag your application as !unstamped to help keep the comm organized. Be sure to let us know if you're not familiar with tags on LJ...we can tag your application once we let it out of the queue if that is the case.
9. Keep in mind that the more you write for your application answers the more likely you are to get an accurate stamp! XD
10. For the time being, only post one application at a time. This might change in the near future, but for now it will keep the comm slightly more manageable. Once you are stamped in one theme, feel free to apply for another! Restamps are allowed, but please allow for two weeks to pass before reapplying.
11. You can set your application to "members only" if you prefer to do so. Please also be honest when applying...it takes the fun out of rating comms if you always try to go for your favorite characters.
12. Speaking of that, the most important rule is to be sure to HAVE FUN! That's what comms like this are for, after all. ♥
