Welcome to 206_bones! This community is about the FOX TV show Bones and anything that is related to it! The most comprehensive site, so you won't need to go anywhere else! You can post anything - stories, news, spoilers, images and everything else as long as you follow the rules! (The basic rules are listed below, please read them! For a more detailed guide, visit this post)
We have also decided that we no longer allow posts regarding friending memes. Those interested in friending memes can visit ours - here.
Any other kind of graphic art must go behind a cut!
No entries/comments concerning episode downloads are permitted. We have a list of legal sites here.
Feel free to advertise other Bones communities, but please keep it down to once a month. (See also our Affiliation-Program!)
No Spoilers outside a cut! (S4 and S5 are considered spoilers!) Make sure you label your spoilers properly so people know for what episode the spoilers are! Also don't use spoilery icons for your posts. If you need to discuss spoilers in comments, make sure they belong to the appropriate entry and you don't go and spoile others that don't want to be spoiled!
Do not post Beta-Reader-Requests to the community. We have a post that should cover all your needs in reagard to this here.
If you need more information on one of the rules you can drop us a comment here.
Please Note: Sometimes we will ask you to edit your entry rather than just delete it. In this case we give you 24hrs to edit the entry. If it is not edited within that time frame, we will delete the entry without further warning.
Please respect the rules and follow them. One of the mods is slightly obsessed with the Deus Ex Machina law and will use if it tempted to.
Why is the community being moderated? This was changed in December 2006 due an increase of people that made posts that were against our rules. The current status is that we give auto-approval after your 3rd post that followed the rules. This way regular posters won't be moderated but only new members will be. However we reserve the right to have certain members on permanent moderation after several breaking of the rules.
We are currently 10 maintainers. The account 206_mods is a shared account which all mods have access to. We use it to post general announcements about the community and rule changes, etc.
However, we have each written a short bio, so you get the general idea who is behind this community. You can read them here.
Please respect the mods, we try to make this a friendly place for everyone. You can contact us at moderatingbones.
In case you'd like to advertise the community we have a few buttons you can use on any site or journal. See all our buttons here!
Also if you're feeling artsy you can create your own buttons for the comm and submit them here. Full credit will be given to you.
