Anonymous: In all honesty I get discouraged when there are too many rules. Follow this person, follow these social networks, go here and do this, add this, do that. Instead of just reblogging a post for endorsement/advertisement. It's confusing and a lot of work for just a promo or whatever. I wanted to apply but I stopped after the fifth request. It's kind of ridiculous. Which is also why I don't enter contests.
I know there’s a lot of stuff to apply for the network itself, but that has yet to be a problem.
We get well over the usual 10 applicants we have spots for a month.
The process, like most networks is to follow the admin & the network blog/dash, email is for the member blog dash, badge or link is required for any network and reblogging the post is usually mandatory as well.
So the only we ask extra is to make your own dolly avatar for the member page.
We have no real rules other than be respectful, be active, let us know url changes, and have a link/badge on your blog.
I realize I type a lot and that’s a fault of mine - I’m bad at shortening what I say and how I explain things. As you can see here. Haha.
But yes, perhaps I ask for too much to be in the BOTM (Doll of the Month) and I should simplify it.
Maybe I will leave the part about people letting us know what they’ll do for votes and stuff up to that person and simply pick from those that reblog?
But what if people who don’t want to be in it reblog?
I would like to keep the guidelines for participating, though, even though they are pretty much common sense, we have had a few issues, so I had to put up some rules.
Thank you for your input! I will try to simplify things, if I can. =]
Give me suggestions and input on how to improve our network & our BOTM (Doll of the Month) specifically, please!
