Welcome to the Community! ;)

Hello Everyone!

This is a post to welcome you to a new community dedicated to MAC Cosmetics and our LOVE for MAC. :)

This community if friends only, so if you're hear and only see three posts...that's because the rest of them have been posted as friends only. You have to JOIN to view other posts! Please join! :)

I started this community because, as many of you know, the mac_cosmetics community has really gotten out of control the last few months.
Insane amount of sales, some spamming and the so-called "moderated membership" is no longer moderated. You can now freely join MAC_Cosmetics now, without having to wait to be approved. Sure that's a good thing for you if you don't want to wait, but it's a bad thing because it means spammers and crazy people. :P
I think the reason why mac_cosmetics has gotten out of control is because there is only ONE moderator and that community is INSANELY POPULAR..So I think that it became too much for the ONE moderator there is and they just gave up altogether on the community.

In this new community, there are MORE THAN ONE Moderator and they are all people you guys already love or will become to love.

If you have any comments, questions or suggestions please feel free to reply with them. :)


I'm slowly working on this section as things come up. So please check back for updates on rules of the community. :)

Community Rules:

1. Please be courteous and treat others with respect. No rude posts or comments are allowed. No drama. No personal attacks.

Please TAG all entries with the appropriate tags. This way people who want to look at FOTDs and not sales/iso posts can easily find them without having to scroll through numerous other posts.

The basic ones should be as followed:

MAC (this can be used for questions/general MAC talk.)
FOTD (used for FOTDS, EOTD, FOTN, etc.)
ISO (If you're looking to buy something, this will make it easier for people who are looking to sell something to find people who want to buy.)
SWAP(If you're looking to swap something, this will make it easier for people who want to swap as well to find you!)
SALE (If people are looking to buy MAC, this will make it easier for them to find sales!)
HAULS (Everyone loves looking HAUL posts, this will make it easier for people to find your HAUL post and drool over what you bought.)
OT (Beauty Related OFF TOPIC only)
Antiquitease(or other collection names, etc.)

3. Sale/Swap/ISO Posts:
Can only be posted on Fridays.
We feel that since most people get paid on Fridays that this would be the good day to post sales. One day of sales is better than 7 days of sales to weed through. We're only doing this because MOST Members are here to TALK MAC, show their FOTDs, ask questions, not to ALWAYS BUY MAC.
If any of the mods see a sales post that is posted on any other day other than FRIDAY, it will be deleted.

ISO/Swap posts may be posted any day of the week, seeing as we don't see them as much as we see sales post. :)

4. Put all large pictures, multiple images, and long posts behind a lj-cut tag. Instructions for how to do an lj-cut can be found HERE. A large picture is anything bigger than 350 pixels on any side. To post pictures with this size, you can use the html tag:

5. As per LJ rules, posting someone else's personal info on this community is not allowed. Posting feedback about another person is also not allowed on this community, however, a link to a feedback site etc. is allowed.

6. Membership is moderated. The requirements are (1)Your LJ account must be active for at least 2 weeks. (2)There must be at least 1 entry with comments enabled. If you are not approved the first time, please try again later.

7. Please try not to post more than 5 times a day, if you have more than one thing to ask/say/show/etc., please try to do it all in less than 5 posts a day. If you do not follow this rule, you may have your posting access removed for a couple of days.

If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions for other/new rules please feel free to email them here: lovemac.lj@gmail.com.

Thanks! :)

i want this to work! i dont know about the sale on fridays thing. Only because then, everyone is going to go sale to sale and want so many things and they may wind up effing over someone they previously commented on because the next friday sale has something better. Which might cause the "sale drama" maybe i'm just looking into it too much! anyway, *off to join*

Yeah I don't know about the sale thing on friday's only either. Only because I'm someone that gets paid every other week on Wednesday's. That would kinda suck.

I dunno we'll try it for a week or so..if it doesn't work out, we'll figure something out!
